Emptying Boxes

Slowly but surely I'm getting through the boxes of stuff. Of course, when we first moved in, I emptied a lot of them. Then came the holidays and that project got put on the back burner.

Since the holidays, we've been busy getting back on track with school, along with the rest of life, so it took me a little while to get with the program. A couple weeks ago, my friend Lucy came over to visit for awhile and somehow having her sit in the studio, chatting with me brought forth motivation.

I've been diligently sorting and purging the plethora of scrapbooking, rubber stamping, and other craft supplies. I'm really looking forward to the scaled down version of my things.

One area that's remained untouched since before the holidays is in front of the bookshelf in the living room. When we moved in, the bookshelf was put there just to have someplace to put some small boxes. At some point, I did manage to put books on about one shelf. So the other day, I began to pull the boxes out and start dealing with the contents. Today, I made even further progress, as indicated by the photo above. Of course, I didn't show you the stacks of things I still need to address, but they're kinda messy.

Gee, who knew a photo of a boring old bookcase had so many words behind it?

Oh yes, moving is such a HUGE task!

I still have a few boxes packed from when we moved almost 4 years ago. Mostly keepsake items for the kids that I just decided to leave... but still....

Pathetic huh?

Your bookshelf looks very nice!

When we move the books are the first things packed and the last things unpacked. I know I'm home when the books are displayed. :)

Glad you are getting settled in!
