Happy Monday...

... from my new home.... hehehe. I hope everyone's weekend was well. We spent this entire past weekend shuffling back and forth between the apartment and the new place. You would think that because we were in an apartment, we wouldn't have a lot of stuff, so wrong. Apparently we have a billion 'little' stuff. But at least we got the all of our furniture (bed and couch, lol) into the new residence so now what's left is all the boxes of precious rubber and some pots and pans. Phew, everything should be in by end of this week.

In other surprising news that I'd like to share is that Ray and I will be having a little Ian or Anya in mid January. Ok, those aren't the official names (Ray won't let me but I tried!) but I do have a little one growing in mah belly now. haha. I wanted to waited until after the house ordeal and after our first check-ups before I confirm to the world that yes indeedy, Bean is coming (bean is the temporary name we have dubbed it for now).

OK so now house is bought, Bean is on the way, moving almost done.... you can imagine that the past few months have been a whirlwind of chaos. haha. But now morning sickness is over, paperwork done and I am organizing my craft stuff and things should be normal soon. :) As soon as the house is unpacked, I shall share pictures! I'm excited that it doesn't look like a warehouse anymore.

I wanted to thank everyone and Jess and DT for a fabulous release day yesterday! It was awesome!

**Please scroll down to view the Blog Hop as you still have until this evening to enter to WIN the August release!***

 I hope you guys like the new images and can't wait to see all the neat things that you do with it. Have a fabulous start of the week! Marie & Bean signing off for now. Much love!
