Hello!?! Anyone out there???

Last time I checked it was October and then BAM! it is halfway through January and the past 4 months are just a total blur. I will NEVER I repeat NEVER go through building a new house EVER AGAIN. It has got to be one of the most stressful things we've ever brought upon ourselves. If there's one reason to do it, it's to get everything in the house that YOU want, not what the people before you wanted. Mission accomplished. I absolutely LOVE my new house! The only thing that hubby and I would maybe do over is adding a second 3-drawer cabinet in the kitchen, but we could always have the cabinet guys come back out and put another one in so I'm not losing sleep over it.

I finally have a dedicated scrap studio! I'm not sharing it with anyone. No guest futon, no office desk for hubby, but maybe I'll share it with my dachsie--she likes to curl up in the chair in the corner. Thought I'd share a few pics of the new casa and scrappy space. I've been working away on a little vintage paper bag mini album since the Christmas break. Almost done with it. I've got a few sneak peaks of the work in progress. I really want to do a video of it, but I can't figure out what equipment I need to make that happen and I've never uploaded to youtube before. It's something I definitely want to try this year. For now, the still frames will have to do. I was hugely inspired by Tracy over at Tracy's Treasures. She has made some gorgeous mini-albums and really nice videos showcasing them. Maybe I'll ask her how to do the videos...

Here's the outside, I have yet to take a good pic with the garage door down! It's a 5 bedroom,3and1/2 bath home. Very deceiving from the outside, but this house is pretty darn big on the inside. Probably way more house than we really needed, but I don't intend to move again so I wanted to get it right this time!

The way it looks right now--yikes.
