Summer Begins

With JUNE 1st rolling in,  my full time online selling came to a close, at least for the summer.  Wow! Almost four years to the date since I began as a new 'destasher'.  First listing on Scrapbook Bargain Basement Resale, eventually listing on several crafting sites, and then creating my on personal site, Not Just Scraps I was so very blessed in moving tons and tons of crafting inventory from my 10 year home based business at some great prices!

Now June is filled with packing MY crafts (and the rest of my house) while preparing to downsize from around 2300 square feet to under 1000 square feet.  Ouch! 
Yes, CRAFTS get packed first as the priority, right?

With my new home being an hour away, I elected to pack in tubs and clear containers that weren't too heavy for me to move myself a car load at a time, put away, and not have the huge mounds of card board boxes to deal with after the 'big move'.

I boxed by room section (desk/bookcase/stamping station etc) 

then got help moving the larger pieces to their new home...

 One surprise I'd forgotten about - when we moved the bookcase....
It was purchased from a outlet store that was going out of business.  I just happen to walk in as they were closing the doors within minutes and this piece was left because of the price.  Made a ridiculous offer of $150 and the rest is history.

More to come....

Thanks for stopping by ~ Pam
