Wow, where did the time go. It has been 5 months since we moved to So. Carolina and into our home. Now it's almost New Years eve and we are again driving back down south after spending the holidays with family and friends. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and let's hope 2014 will be better for a lot of the folks out there who are having a rough year.

Anyway, I have been busy settling into my new home. Decorating is so much fun and something I really enjoy. I rather do that than shop for clothes. My new studio is in one of our bedrooms and it has been slow going as far as getting it organized. I did change out the rug for hardwood, but I had to wait for the Container Store to have there 30% sale on their Elfa storage system to go sale. They have that sale every Christmas until the end of February. That was one of the things we did while we were in NY. I should be getting it this week some time. Can't wait to finally unpack all my fabric and art supplies. I'm also working on a wall quilt for over the fireplace. It's so beautiful down here. And I have been inspired by all the birds and flora fauna.

It's now January 29th, and another month has flow by. I got my storage system for the studio, and I love them. I had bought wheels for them. What was I thinking? Wrong choice. Every time I put out a drawer the whole thing moves. I had to take them off and return them. Other than that, they are great. Also the container store is a very good company to buy from. My Elfa was shipped to my house, and unfortunately one of the tops was damaged. I also realized that I wanted name tags to put on the drawers.(I'm trying to be Organized....LOL) The name tags came to, think 8.95 and the shipping was 9.00. When I called about the top I told them about the tags. They sent me a new top (I was told to keep the old one) and they wavered the shipping on the tags.  Enough said.  Here are some photos:

I also bought a portable design wall. Right now I have a quilt on it, that I'm working on. 

                          I love the high ceilings. I now have more places to hang my work.

This is my desk. Believe it or not it's neater in this old photo than it is right now.The shelves whole most of my beads,crystals and tools for jewelry making. If I tried to clean it up for a new photo, I would never get this posted. And another month will go by. 
Well that's whats going on down here in the Low country. I will try not to take so long in posting again.
