Back to normal, slowly but steadily

Hello my friends,

I think I can finally say I've settled into my new place :)
Well, not everything is unpacked and I am definitely not done decorating but all in all my move is complete. And truth to be told, it took me long enough. I am still amazed by the amount of stuff I own...

The first Christmassy goodies I bought this year :)
Found these cute stickers at the local drug store (Rossmann)

My office / crafting room isn't set up yet. I still have to find a new cupboard which can hold not only my paper work but also my crafting suppliers. Quite a challenge, I tell you. But as I have finally figured out what hides in which moving box, I think I am sort of back into crafting action nevertheless.

The magical dashboard of my 2018 planner
I found this amazing paper in my stash

So last Sunday I started working on personalizing my 2018 planner. So far I decided on the first dashboard and I made notes on the different sections I'd like to create. Nothing huge so far but I am getting there. As I don't own a laminator I will probably buy some clear foil to cover all the other dashboards with. But that's not decided yet. Same goes for the question whether I will create all monthly dashboards in advance or on a month to month basis in 2018.
You see, still a lot of thinking and crafting to do but it feels good to be back in creating mode :)

See you next week, my friends!

Still on the move

Hello everyone,

so this will be once again about me moving, so sorry ;)

Before I actually started packing together my belongings, I looked for tips and tricks online on how to make moving easier in some way. While doing so I came across a moving newsletter by IKEA for IKEA family members. This newsletter includes a coupon for a starter package to pick up in the store. The starter package includes a couple of coupons as well as some labels for moving boxes.

IKEA labels & DIY labels for kitchen and office 

Those labels are adorable but unfortunately there aren't enough for all my belongings. I therefore simply scanned them and made more by printing them on simple sticker paper. This way I also added another label to the collection that wasn't there before which is a label for my office.

New DIY labels in use

As you are reading this, I am taking some much needed rest from breathing in wall paint and being up all day long for quite a few days. Well, rest maybe isn't the correct word. I will probably spent most of the day filling some more moving boxes.

Moving boxes lined up in my living room and ready to be filled

I spent the last days painting the walls of my new apartment with great support by my mother. In the meantime my father installed some lights and took care of some cables. Piece by piece my new place is coming together.
I am expecting a huge furniture delivery to arrive tomorrow which will be followed by a few more busy days setting everything up. And of course most of the boxes still have to be brought to my new place so there's still quite a lot to take care of.

Daily morning ritual: Brewing several pots of tea for the day

Well, I am definitely looking forward to when it's all done and I am finally settled into my new apartment :)

Yours
Uta
