  1. Happy 2014 to everyone

  2. Still happily settling into our new home - now lots of Christmas preparations so not much time for any digital scrapbooking.

      So glad to here you're settling in well. Enjoy your 1st Christmas in your new home. And, enjoy those grandbabies you're so much closer to now!

  3. I have now caught up on my Project Life pages. Setting up my craft room is still completely finished but nearly there.

      We miss you, too. Thanks for stopping by the Forum to say hello.

  5. Still very busy unpacking and settling into our new home. I have mobile internet and being in a country area it is very slow at times.

      Thanks for checking in; I was thinking about you and wondering how the unpacking was going. Best wishes to you for much happiness in your new home!

      Good to hear you are settling in and I know how slow mobile Internet can be in the country, the kids couldn't wait to get home to high speed broadband lol, good to see you back :-)

      Hope you will love your new home and neighborhood. Bummer about the internet, hopefully your speed will improve over time.

  6. We are now in our new home. Our furniture arrives tomorrow. We are loving our "Escape to the Country". So many friendly people we have met already and I just love my bigger kitchen.

  7. Today we organised the final payment for our new home and will be moving in next week. I just realised that we have moved to a state with daylight saving so I will need to re-calculate times for taking part in chats.

      Fabulous news A-M. So I am guessing you will be much closer to your daughter & her family.

  8. We are enjoying our holiday and emotionally coming to terms with the fact I will not be returning to my old home when this holiday is over.

      It's a new chapter in your life. Sending all best wishes to you.

      It's hard, I know. I still think about moving home from here to my old house. Don't think the new owners would like that too much!

    3. Smoky

      Smoky

      It will certainly be a change for you, but a good one, I hope. Wishing you well.

  9. Tomorrow the removalists come to take our belongings to be put into storage until 20th November when we move into our new home. From Saturday our only home will be our caravan and we are having a much needed holiday at a coastal town - Lennox Head.

      How exciting for you Ann-Marie. Lennox is so beautiful. I went down to Lake Ainsworth for a scrapbooking retreat a couple of years ago.

  10. I just finished possibly my last layout for our Anniversary challenges. I need to do serious packing. Next Friday 1st Nov the removalist will be coming. Then Sat 2nd we head off to live in our caravan for a little holiday as we cannot get into our new home ( not newly built) until the 20th.

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

      Good luck and go well Anne Marie Will miss you here, take care. :)

      Good luck with the packing. That's great that you are looking at your enforced camping as a vacation.

      I just hope it all goes well for you and that you are healthy during your holiday while waiting for your new home!

  11. Looks like the roller coaster ride to sell our house and move is not over yet. The sellers of the house we are buying did not sign the contract until today so the solicitor said that mean they can have up to 28 days to move out. We need to be out of our present home at the end of next week. So thankful we have our caravan so we will still have a roof over our heads.

    1. Terri M

      What a mess...One time when we moved the seller of the house we were buying dragged his feet and we had to move into a relative's home with our 3-week-old baby. It will all work out in the end!

      I really feel for you all, A-M. so stressful. Those RV/Caravans come in handy don't they.

  12. Wondering if sections of the gallery have been closed off during the Anniversary happenings??? I am unable to upload to the Project Life gallery.

    1. ValerieT

      It is possible it got turned off by mistake. I'll make sure April is aware of this.

  14. It is so nice to see Scrap Girls celebrate 9 years as sadly the last surviving Australian owned digi site is about to close. It is the first digi forum I ever joined back in 2008.

  17. Lat this afternoon we received the awaited phone call from our solicitor to say the contract on the people buying our home has gone unconditional. Now we can make definite plans to purchase our dream home we fell in love with back in August.

  21. For those who saw my Art Journal page about me being on a roller coaster with the selling of our home and moving closer to my daughter.... after a phone call from daughter today I am not sure where I am on the roller coaster - up or down - I think I just flew off the rails. She told us not to rush into buying another home... they may be moving and buying a property with two houses so we can live in one.

    1. Smiles

      I'm affirming this is working out for your highest good!

  22. It is so nice that you are Member of the month this month. Congratulations

  23. Things are not running smoothly with the sale of our house. Looks like the house we would really like to purchase may only be a dream!

      Jo Corne

      noooo, let's hope it is just a hiccup (sp) and it will all turn out the way you want

  24. The sale of our home is not running smoothly - hassles with the local council over a room we added. Bit frustrating as we have found another home we really really want to buy.
