Life continues update

It's been a rather crazy three weeks,but I finally got everything done. Tomorrow my house gets listed and the for sale sign goes up;my taxes are done;I've finished all my packing; and last week I bought a brand new house and we're hoping to close by the end of March which is in a few days. So tomorrow I can finally rest and get back to creating art, which I've missed doing.

My "Just Crazy About Dogs" girls know something is going on and have really stayed glued to me, following me all through the house...poor babies.

I think in my next life I could come back as a professional mover---secrets of getting packing done in record time. I've noticed with each move I tend to get rid of more stuff...not hanging on to stuff, which in itself is rather freeing. I guess I'm making room for the new stuff!

So the journey continues!!!!

Life changes....

Last week I was trying to finish up my portraits, when out of the blue my husband was offered a 3 year consulting position in Southern California. So in a matter of two days my life has become rather hectic. My art is on hold as I'm getting my house ready to put on the market, which means de-cluttering, packing my treasures, flying to California to find a house, do my taxes, and do more packing. My target date to list my house is April 1st. At the moment I feel rather overwhelmed with all the stuff I have to do to list my house. Between my walk-in closet and my art room, I have a lot of clothes and art supplies to pack. I'm trying to pack my art books and material according to subjects...watercolor, drawing,rubber stamps, and whatever other categories I might find. I'm so tired, but everything has to get done.

I'm trying to play catch up on my last few drawings of portraits for February. In the meantime, here our some pictures of my house from yesterdays snow shower. It only has snowed 4 times since I've moved to Washington State 2 years ago.
