On THE Move

Putting the Sign in the Yard!
I've been talking about wanting to sell our house and move closer to my family for several years now. Although I've been wanting to move for awhile, the timing wasn't quite right...until now! We put our house up for sale in January, in the middle of a rough winter, for us anyway, thinking that I would have several months to get ready for THE Move.
Packing the art supplies! 
At first, things were slow and I thought it may not happen now either. But after one month of being on the market, the right people came along and wanted to buy our house! Yay! Great, but they had to sell their house first. Okay, that gives us a little more time to get ready, start planning and packing. But less than 2 weeks later, they had sold their house and were wanting to close on ours by the end of March! Oh my! That was fast! forward to the end of March...we have moved across the State, to Northwest Arkansas, and closed on our home of 18 years. It has been a hectic month! We have been unpacking for over a week now and still have a lot of boxes to go through, but it is beginning to look and feel more like home everyday. So, I feel like this was one of those life changes that happened when it was supposed to happen. So I'm looking forward to seeing where this Chapter in our lives takes us.

My goal this week is to unpack and organize the rest of my studio.

Packing the truck!

Unpacking the art supplies!


  1. Welcome to NWA! Excited for you to connect with ARWomenBloggers in the area. We are in NWA most weekends at our place on Beaver Lake. I can help you make those connections to ARWB and to the NWARBloggers group if you need that, enjoy the unpacking��

  2. Thank you Debbie! I am very happy to be here! I will be looking to make new connections, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

  3. Welcome to NWA! I hope you join our NWA Blogger group.

  4. Thank you Jamie! I'll look into it!

  5. Don't you just love sterilite and rubbermaid plastic containers for art supplies? I used dozens of them in my move.

    How's your studio coming together? I'm just putting the finishing touches on mine now. So excited to get working again in my own studio! Congratz on your move Beth! Really glad everything went to smoothly for you.



I love hearing from you! Thanks for stopping by!
