It's finally official!!!

We've been approved for the apartment!!!! When Brian came in tonight and told me I so excited that I literally lept off the couch and gave him the biggest hug! We're going to the apartment on Monday to sign the lease and we should be able to start painting and moving stuff in on Thursday. New place, here I come!!

Craft Room.

What beautiful words!! Soon, very soon, I will have my space, my own place. I can mess it up, relax in it - it will be my little creative haven away from the world. I'm so excited- a WHOLE ROOM just for my art! I can't even imagine - space to do all the crafty things I love! I'll have my desk for scrapping, a sewing table, a cozy corner for crocheting and (gasp) knitting. There will be plenty of room for storage in my big closet and a place for all of my Sterilite drawers. I'll get to decorate the room with as much art and inspiration as I can manage to fit. As long as it will fit, I'm even going to have a bed for those sleepy moments when I might want to take a nap. :)

Getting closer!

Brian saw the place on Saturday and really likes it! Yay! Now we just have to fill out the application and fax it over to our soon-to-be landlord. I'm getting so anxious. If the place was already ready to move into I'd be sleeping there already. Oh, how I hate having to be patient! I'm all packed except some clothes, a few odds and ends, and a few necessities. November needs to hurry up and get here!

Two more weeks!!!!

For those that don't know, I'll be moving soon!!!I'm very excited, and yes, my house will be fine for those of you that know the situation. I'm not just going to leave my family hanging, but I do need to get out on my own. Everything is all worked out. :)

Brian and I will be getting a two bedroom apartment in Lakewood. It's in a good neighborhood and just around the corner from many of our friends. Not only will I be getting to finally live with my dearest love, but the craftster in me will have a wonderful new place to decorate!!!

This is my inspiration:

Earthy. Ethnic. Warm. Inviting. Cultured.

Thank goodness Brian and I are in agreement with the color palette and the feel of how we want our place to be. I think I could pretty much do whatever I want and he would be okay with it. Our landlord is allowing us to paint too, which is amazing so we really have tons of options and colors/textures to play around with. I would really like to mix up the place with everything from Celtic and European decor to some Middle Eastern and Asian flavors. It should be a lot of fun!
