moving . . .

. . . just letting everyone know that I'll be absent from my blog just a little while longer - we're finally downsizing (yeah!!!).  We bought a cute little cottage in Chico, so we'll be moving next month.  Needless to say, I haven't had any time to be creative . . . have any idea how long it's going to take us to let go of 34 years of accumulation???  (I DO have to admit that feels WONDERFUL to get rid of stuff)
I can't wait to get my new stamping area set up - it's going to be fabulous - and I have so many ideas swimming around in my head . . . I'll be anxious to share them all with you . . .
