S.T.R.E.S.S.

Stress, I think I have given new definition to that word! We moved back to Alberta at the beginning of the summer and wanted to build a home instead of buying. It's been an interesting journey, one that I wouldn't want to take too often. We waited 2 months for our blueprints to be done, and then the building process began. We wanted to save where we could, so I volunteered to paint the walls. I think I've mentioned in the past that painting is like child birth, you forget just how bad it is, until you're going through it again, lol.

We spent the first few months in our camper, and while it's a large(ish) one, it's still never big enough for a family of five! From there we moved into a small 2 bedroom home, again not big enough for a family of five. I had all my stamp stash in our bedroom with great plans to continue stamping, but I finally threw my hands in the air and decided to just wait until I could have my space again.

Well I have a space, a whole room to be exact (wohoo!) and it should be up and functional in about 1-2 weeks, from there I should be back to posting again. I am so excited!! Once my room is done I'll post some images so you can see my hard work, ok maybe more like my husband's hard work. :)

So all of this, just to say: stay tuned. I'll be back soon! And thanks for not giving up on my blog!

Thanks for stopping by!
