New chapter in my life

So in June 2012, my home was robbed for the 4th time in 18 months.  Lucky for me I was never home when this happened.  But what if I hadn't?  So I put my house on the market and started the process of finding a new home.  My old home was in Lansing, MI in an area which really was not that high in crime.  Well except for my house apparently.

The house hunting was fun and frustrating.  I put in a few offers which where not accepted.  Had an approved bid on a short sale which fell through.  Finally I found the perfect house for me.  I tell you being an avid crafter and antique collector, I've accumulated a lot of stuff over the years.  Packing was no small feat!  

My new home is in Mason, MI which is a much smaller town.  It's a ranch build in 1977 on almost an acre and a half.  It has a garage, which I've never had before.  A full walk out basement.  3 bedrooms on the main floor.  2 full baths.  And an additional 2 bedrooms in the basement.  Way more room than a single lady needs, but you never know when you might need it.  I am able to have an office, craft room (for my paper crafts), sewing room, my bedroom of course, and a spare room for whatever.  My laundry is now on the first never realized how nice that would be.  I have a great big kitchen.

Unfortunately, I'm still trying to sell my old house - pictures below.  I'm really hoping it doesn't end up going back to the bank.  But if it does I see it as a small price to pay for having a home I feel safe in. 

Well I am hoping to post more crafts now that I'm finally moved and somewhat more organized.

  1. Well good luck selling Valerie and congrats on the new home. It looks fabulous. Maybe we can have a pic of that craft room when it is set up. (Jealous!) hugs x
