Hello. My name is Susan aka Knitters Despite....errrr I mean Delight. I am a bad blogger. Why have I forsaken my beloved blog? Well, work has been crazy in addition to a lot of other time consuming things going on in my life recently.
I will share one bit of news........drum roll please... I am in escrow and will be buying my FIRST PLACE! This has been a year in the making. California, San Diego more specifically, has some crazy real estate issues going on right now. With all of the short sales (a homeowner owes one or 2 banks on their mortgage for WAY MORE than the property is now worth or could ever be sold for now that prices have plummeted) I have put in more offers than I care to remember only to be rejected after months of waiting on each property. Well, I have been blessed. I found a traditional sale (well trustee sale, but close enough) that I put an offer on and it has been accepted. Funds have been transferred and I will be able to close as soon as the next few weeks! Of course that means I'm de-stashing, de-cluttering (or de-hoarding if I'm being honest) and organizing for my move. That also means I have not sewn or knit a thing in far too long. I plan on resuming my happy crafting lifestyle next month after I am in my new place.
Since my last post I have returned from a successful trade show in Vegas and a fabulous Fourth of July weekend with my roommie and friends all having a weekend of fun - from barbecues to IKEA shopping, to Demolition Derby and Fair Food! I hope you like the pics (a hodge podge mixture of Vegas and the Derby. lol).
Happy Crafting to everyone out there that has NOT allowed life to get in the way of creativity.
