on september 13, we put our house on the market... time for a new adventure...
on september 14, we sold our house. on september 18, we put an offer on a house...
on october 19, we closed on the house we were selling...
on october 26, we closed on our new house, packed a uhaul, and moved.
one craaaazy month! we still have boxes strewn about. no curtains or blinds. a POD in our driveway. but... i love it in our new place. it is a little mini farm. or at least that is what i like to call it. i was going to include a couple pictures of the place. but alas, my camera just ran out of batteries. i will be posting more about our move, the house, and a new floorcloth.
in the meantime...
in may, i signed up to be part of the summer elevated envelope project. i was excited. i had big plans. i usually do.
|raspberry bushes through paper art...|
through this project i was assigned 9 lovely ladies to create artistic envelopes for. and they made envelopes for me. how fun is that?
|bunting is always cute, right? well... i think so :-)|
i showed my first attempt at my envelope back in june. my design involved paper cutting, scrapbooking, and embroidery. it was exciting for me to try it out. i could have done it a quicker way which allowed me to complete them earlier (which really meant... on time), but i really had a desire to make the envelopes this way. it was challenging and took some time (a lot of time to be exact), but i think they ended up beautiful. when i took them to the post office to mail them the postal worker really loved them. she wanted to know where i purchased them! i was so happy to be able to tell her that i made them myself.
so, 2 months late, i successfully mailed all my envelopes. yay! and a month later... i am finally posting about them. it felt so good to finish the project and feel so good about the final product. i will definitely sign up for a future elevated envelope project.
