In my world right now

Our new home (manufactured home) is on the local lot and awaiting it's time for set-up and delivery!!!  David, the kids and I are so excited! We have decided to buy a new lot and have the new house put there, instead of on the existing land I am on. That way, we can do everything the way WE want it, not having to convert horse barns, trees where we wouldn't have put them, etc.  We will then either remodel and rent this little place or sell it. We haven't made that decision yet. It does need quite a bit of work on it. So, we will see.

So, I have begun the process of getting things sorted out, trashed, sold/given away and packed. I have moved so many times in the past 6 years since moving to Amarillo, you would think it would be an easy task for me. It's not. Never will be. The older get, the less organized I am and it just stinks.

On a great note, though, once we get into the new house, I will finally have a studio! A place to work and call mine. I am working to release a new product line of baby/child items and I will finally have the space to do what I love to do!

We are ordering one of those "Amish built" wood portable storage type buildings and will "build it out" into my studio/guest room/bathroom over the course of a little time.

This photo is awful, I took it with my cell phone and just couldn't get a good shot. This one is NOT ours. It is just what ours will look like from the front. I am torn between a metal or shingle roof. But ours will be painted to match our new house. These are so reasonably priced, rent-to-own in 3 or 5 years(your choice), with no credit check. Pay for it and keep it as long as you like...or pay it off and keep it forever.  So easy!

Ours will have my studio, guest room and a 3/4 bath on the ground floor, then storage galore in the attic area! There is even a neat ledge on the front inside that will be a gorgeous place for plants and displaying my creations. I am so excited!

Working on the layout. I love designing floor-plans of houses (or buildings of any type).

I have also been busy a little with continuing my knitting journey...

Remember back in May, I made my first knitted project (dish cloth) while on the road to Louisiana? I so love making these! Quick and easy. Just the way I like it at this point.

I am also working on a crochet afghan for our new grand-son due the end of this month.

My's taken quite a beating. Since we decided to buy a new piece of land, I never got things out of pots and into a garden properly, so nothing has done much of anything. Next year will be different!

Here's hoping the weekend is wonderful for you and yours.


  1. Wonderful and exciting at the same time!!! Keep the pictures coming as you get your house in place and move in!

  2. Congratulations! We currently own a house, and then some land in the next town over. Eventually we want to build on the land, but it is slow going! Enjoy your new space!

  3. My husband and I are thinking of the small cabin idea.Now if we could find an acre of property to sit it on.LOL
