Closing Day!

If you remember, some time back, I mentioned Ely and Liz staying with us for a few days that turned into "whenever we can find something to buy"...That was back in June...well, I'm happy to say that TODAY they FINALLY got to close on their house! I am so happy for them! It's a nice little 2 bed/2 bath ranch w/garage and small barn on 5 acres! And it's only about 7 or 8 miles from here. It was a government foreclosure and it seemed to take forever to get everything in order for them to close. But it's now done and the work begins. As with alot of foreclosures, the houses are left somewhat of a mess and that is how they are is! I helped Ely clean a bit this's amazing the difference just a little cleaning can do. We are far from finished though. Walls to repair and paint, doors to replace, carpets to clean and if they don't clean up the way we hope, then there will be carpet to tear up and replace! Then moving and unpacking...and getting my room back in order! Hopefully, we'll have all this taken care of in the next couple weeks or so.

I hope you are having a great week! Where do the days go? It's already Thursday! I've gotten alot accomplished this week but yet I still feel like I could of done more had the hours not passed so quickly!
The little BOO box there is one of my lastest finishes this week...and already SOLD! This is one of Primitive Betty's freebie designs! Thanks Betty!
Also got a doll order finished up and made up another little box with a sheep punch needle on the top. Alterations has been fairly busy this week and then there's the usual day to day things to do.

Well, it's late...way later than what I'm usually up so I'm going to say good-night! Have a wonderful Friday!!

Awww, congratulations to Ely and Liz! How awesome for them! (And I still can't believe Ely is old enough to have his own house. Wow.)
