Wow! It's been awhile! My poor blog has been neglected because I haven't been able to get on the internet at all. Well for those of you who are wondering, the family has relocated to the Sun City. And we are settling into our new townhouse. And I am sure just as soon as we get settled into it we will be relocating again to our new home.

Arizona is so beautiful! I love everything about it and that includes the heat too! I am so excited because we have been blessed this whole time with relocating and the house in MN and being able to do so many more things than we had planned for. And there have been bumps in the process but things are getting so much better.

I don't have any complaints but I do have some advice for those traveling through the Rocky Mountains...Drive in 3rd gear and make sure you have new brakes put on you car. OMG! I was so terrified who knew that a 7degree incline could be so scary to drive. But it doesn't help that the incline is also around curves and blind turns. It was scarrrryyyy!

But that's all the advice and such that I have to share. I am at a public library right now and since we can't get our DSL services here through Netzero, I am not sure which internet provider we will get but I do hope that it will be soon.

Hi everyone! I am stopping in really quickly (a mini break from packing) to say hi! I am so excited! We had a yard sale last weekend and sold lots of stuff. I was amazing just how well we did and really wanted to kick myself for not having a sale before. But now I am trying to get all the final details worked out because we are hitting the road tomorrow. Well in the am and I still haven't completed my packing. I have been going through things and getting everything together for family and friends. I even gave away a bunch of scrapbooking goodies.

Well I gotta go. I plan on taking photos on the road and hopefully uploading them as soon as I can get to the laptop or computer. It might be a little while since both my hubby and I are driving.

I've been super busy packing! And I am so glad to be able to move forward on this now. I have lots of ideas for our new house (both the rental and the house we are buying) and I can't wait to leave. I just have to give you all a little update. Our house is sold and we are moving. Those two things are happening no questions asked. And so I will not be updating as often as I should for the next month because I am packing, moving and getting settled.

On Sunday we had a yard sale and it was amazing really amazing! I couldn't believe that we made as much as we did when only put the signs up the night before and then set up the next morning. But we are going to have another sale this coming week (starting tommorrow) and run through Sunday.

I am selling everything. Whatever we can fit into our second van is what is going with us. And that's it. It's so weird because whenever we have moved in the past, I held onto everything. And now not keeping most of the items and selling everything seems so different to me.

But enough about that, I have some crafty stuff to share...I had been wanting to paint my ATG forever and never had the time to do it because I knew that I wanted to make it a little more detailed other than just spray painting it. But what I realized is that if I didn't just do something that it would be forever before I did anything. So I bought some spray paint and did what I could to make it look more like what I wanted. I never showed the finished ATG so I am going to show it today. I have no idea what design I was going for but I really like it. I didn't put the top coat (clear matte finish) over the bling because I had heard that it causes the jewels to yellow or something, and I did put the jewels on with glossy accents because I want to change them to another color whenever I can find them. But here is my ATG...she is so prr-uuu-ty
