Bliss.... and who wants a tour of our new home?!?!?!?

Hi everyone!!

I am alive and well... and have finished moving and UNPACKING!! YAY!!!! If you are following me on facebook - you will know that I have pretty much been only active on there for the past few days ... this is the first time I have turned on my laptop since Friday!!! lol!! I hope you all forgive me for not visiting you in the past few days, but TODAY I am catching up with everyone... and at the end of this post.... I have PICTURES of our new home!!!!! YAY!! :)

I have another layout to share today as a Fresh Face Designer over at Practical Scrappers!!  This will also be live on the Blue Moon Blog at 8AM MST!

The prompt this time is machine stitching!

Brian bought me flowers for our anniversary in March and I was waiting for the perfect papers for it!! Amy Tangerine's papers for American Crafts were just the PERFECT ones!!!






And now for some new home pics!!!!!


Brookie's Room!!!





Adam's Room!!




Me and Brian's Room!!!



Our bathroom!!

And our closet is next to our bathroom... and it didn't have a door -- so I had to get a little creative and I hung up a shower curtain! LOL!

The kid's bathroom!!


The living room!!

Mr. Dandy! :)


The dining room!!



The entryway!!!

The kitchen!!

My knick-knacks in the kitchen :)




And now the family room/my scrap room!!

This view I am trying to show how big this room is -- I am standing at the end of the kitchen

My collection of cookie jars and my plaques I bought from Jennifer's ETSY shop!!! 

My canvasses I made :)

Brookie's little play kitchen area! :)


My scrappy space!!   The unit against the back wall is our old entertainment center that I custom organized to fit my scrappy goodies! :)




Another plaque I got from Jennifer's ETSY shop and a basket with my completed mini's!!!



I found this gem at an antique store!!!!




This is in the corner across from my table --- the bookshelf belonged to Brian's Grandma and the rocking chair belonged to my Grandfather!! 

The second entry into the living room!! Hi Brian! LOL! :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  2. Great place and yep - it never ceases to amaze me how much you seem to be able to get done. Such a shame you live so far away, my DD has out grown a little table and chairs which would be just perfect for Brookie's kitchen area ;(
    Good Luck in your new home.

  8. FASTEST.UNPACKING.EVER. Your home is beautiful, Julie. I love the floors, the kitchen, and the awesome arched doorway!!! My friends are always amazed at how quickly I get moved and settled, but you, my friend, set a world record! I still have a few boxes in our family room, and I have not even started on the dining room....I am saving up money to paint, and I don't want to unpack my china until the room is painted. You rock!!!
