I miss you!

     Posted by Lori on July 16, 2017

It’s been two weeks since we closed, and it seems like it’s been a lot longer than that.  I miss you! It’s just not the same when I don’t get to see and hear from all of you.  This card that Norine made says it all … it’s so true …


The finishing of the store is moving along, it’s been a learning experience for me … I find myself saying a lot of this ….

What happens next?When do you do this?and my favorite …………………………….. ohhhhhh that looks awesome! *grin*

Remember in this post here when I showed you a picture of my future office window?  Well, here is a couple of sneak peeks of what has happened since then.


What a difference it made when this happened.  When the taper was there, it was so humid and muggy out that I had to go and rent a heater so that it would dry in time for the next step.  Wow it got hot in there, but it worked.  The furnace can’t be turned on at this point as there is too much dust in the area.  Thankfully, it didn’t take long to cool off again, or the painter would have cooked.  lol


And here is that same space painted … not a great picture … but I don’t want to give away too much, as I want it all to be a surprise when it’s finished.

This new space is so different then the “old store” (wow, it seems odd to say that).  In the “old store” there was the store space, the teaching room, and the office/storage/furnace all in one room.  It’s going to be so different and so nice to have an actual office without storage and a furnace in the same room.  I am loving the open space of the store, it looks so HUGE, in fact I think I could do laps and get a good long walk in, lol.

There’s a little update of what’s happening at the new store … and it’s time now for me to finish my coffee and start packing some more things here at home.  Cause yes, we are also moving out of our house at the same time.  Yep, call us crazy, but in our life it seems everything happens at once.  And you got it, that means my scrap space is being packed up and I will have future blog posts of how I set up my new space, which is going to be very different than what I have now.  (by the way, packing is NOT fun)

Hope you are having a great summer … can’t wait to see you all again soon!
