Going blinds

I spent my morning yesterday in our new house with a nice guy named Danny from the blinds company. We've got blinds ordered for all the bedrooms now and our master bath. Everything else is going to have to wait though. It may be a while before we can afford to cover the other windows. The house isn't officially ours until the 30th but the builder has been so good to us. He gave DH the code to the garage so we can go in whenever we want. I got down there yesterday, an hour and a half drive, opened the garage door and then tried to get in the house. The interior door was locked! I think the girls must have accidently locked it when we were there on Sunday. Some guys were working on the basement and we were thankfully able to get in. Being in the house does make me want to move in like right now. Don't get me wrong, I am going to miss so many people here terribly (yes especially you Mary and Kimber) :) but I am just dying to move into that gorgeous house.

On the agenda today-get some scrappy projects done before my sweet friend, Mary and I go out for lunch. I need to get my projects done for the end of this month and the beginning of next. I figure I will be without my scrapbooking stuff for about three weeks by the time we move and then leave for spring break. Wish me luck. Not feeling so hot (I think I am coming down with what K had last week).
I will leave you with a card though, before I go. LOVE these little Potty People from Magistical Memories. The pattern paper is Basic Grey and everything else is My Mind's Eye (love that company!)

Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing Tuesday!

Hi Lisa! You need to show us a picture of your new house! Will the builder paint for you? Ours painted the standard color, so I had to repaint most everything!

oh new houses are so exciting! i love that feeling of starting fresh :) and take your time on the blinds...we've been here 2 years and STILL don't have all the windows covered!

That card is so cute! Good luck with your move. We just went through a big one (from GA to NY) and I was without my scrap stuff for FOREVER. I'm sure your new space will inspire more great work out of you. Congrats!

Your little chipboard people on your card are totally the cutest!!! LOVE IT! When we got our new house, the first thing we did was order blinds. At least the windows were covered that way.

Can't wait to see pictures of your new house. Moving is so stressful, yet exciting at the same time! I've been in this house for 11 years and I cannot imagine trying to pack everything up. My attic alone would require 3 moving vans...lol! I'm really happy for you and your family. I'm sure the new house is Fab-U-Lous!

That card is so cool, I love the potty people and so does J! Thanks for your email today. I long for the thrill of a new house, but I'm so skeptical in this economy, in this area anyway. It's like the people here didn't get the memo about the recession?
