Hi all!

Well, we made it. We are officially Minnesotans!

We got our house on Tuesday so I still have a few more days of unpacking. Good news is, I have a scrapdesk again!!!! We have a downstairs that we are dedicating as a playroom and office with a scrapbooking nook. I am super excited to get in there and start playing. Bad news is, I have accumulated so much stuff in my scrapping hiatus, I don't have a place to store it all! Since I wasn't scrapping, I kept buying stuff to ease the void. I pretty much doubled my stash without even realizing it! So, I am in search of some scrapping organizers and a shelving unit because I've got to get things organized.
Oh, and I am now literally within walking distance of a local scrapbook store!!! I can see it from my backyard! How cool is that!

Glad to hear the move went well and that you are so close to a store! How cool is that??? Organizing my scrapping stuff when I moved here a few months ago was so much fun. Enjoy!!

Woo-Hoo!!! Yahoo But wait, what scrapping store are you by? You're in Big Lake, right? The one I knew that was there closed (that's the one I worked at) and I know there's a stamping store, is that what you're talking about? I didn't know there was one besides that!! I hope you get all settled in and enjoy being in MN!!

I'm glad the move went well and your getting situated. Congrats on having a scrapbook space! Check craigslist to see if you can find any cool organizers.

Well, we ended up being in Albertville and there is a store called Scrapbook Companion or something like that. Gosh, I hope it is still open!

Ohhhh ok!! Well if you're in Albertville I'm sure it is. I was thinking you were in Big Lake.

We were supposed to be in Big Lake but DH was having trouble finding a house for rent, in our price range, that was as big as I wanted. I think I'm going to like the Albertville area. I LOVE the outlet mall!!!!1

The Albertville outlets are wonderful! I was there the other day but only got a chance to shop half of it before I had to leave. I have never noticed a scrapbooking store out there before, I will have to be on the look out next time.

Congrats on the big move and I hope you get settled in easily enough. Time to scrap!

Glad you're move went well! How exciting to have a scrap nook! We were just in Albertville to the outlets last month and we loved it. We plan to make it a yearly trip for school shopping.
