A little STAMPING LOVE in Germany!

Wooo Hooo! My first order arrived here in Germany - a day earlier than I used to in Italy! Oh happy day!!! Here is Thomas coming back from the post office...
Scissors at the ready!
(And no, he DID NOT open my box!!!)

This is mostly items from the Holiday catalog which goes live on August 1st. I did pick up a few things from the main catalog that I forgot about when I placed my new catalog order just before we moved. I've opened everything up and thrown away the wrappers, etc. So much stuff in one box, and an extra $50 in freebies (so over $130 this order alone!!!) as well. I love that we Demos get our stuff at least a month before customers, get it at 20% off, AND still get all the Hostess benefits! LOVE IT!!!! 

Some shots from the hotel room:
Bella was so focused and absorbed in her DS game!
She didn't even realize I was photographing her, lol!!!
I don't know what we would have done without it during this move! 
Kept her happy for over two weeks now!
Bella napping with her Daddy Doll!
She was given this in 2007!!!

So, sadly, this might be my last post for a while!!!! We sign for the house this afternoon, and then leave at o'dark-thirty tomorrow morning to meet the movers at the house! We will not have internet for a bit either. How long? Your guess is as good as mine, lol! They said up to three weeks, which would be August 3rd. Perhaps less time? Perhaps more time? *sad, pouty face!*

Rest assured that I will remain my usual maniac, photographing self and will fully document our move and any/all of its aftermath! God forbid something should go unblogged, right?? PLEASE keep those comments, emails, and facebook postings coming!!!!! I'm going to miss you all like crazy! Should internet not be up by the first, I'll have to go into Thomas' work office to pay bills - ugh - so I'm hoping that won't happen.

Also, I'd gratefully accept all prayers and good wishes for things to go smoothly tomorrow!!! I'm already kind of a hot mess about my Work Box, and I'm hoping something can be done to make it usable at the very least. Trust me, the moving company WILL be charged for it and we've already talked to our insurance agent about it. (BTW, our car insurance is about half of what it was in Italy - bonus!!!) I just don't even want to think of stamping without it!! WHERE will I put everything???? *cuss words!* Thomas says it will all work out and I should stop worrying about it. Good theory....but....what if.....

Such a great gift SU is the best of all.

Thomas looks like he's happy about the box, my hubby wouldn't be.

Good luck on the move.
Prayers are with ya!

I imagine getting that box was a bit like Christmas! Congrats on finally moving in...

Well, at least you'll have those goodies to keep you busy while you wait for intenet. Not to mention all the unpacking and organizing of your stuff, and more exploration of the town you're going to beliving in... You wont be bored anyway!

I love that you blog about everything! And I bet your grown kids love it to so that they can see what's going on when they can't be there. You must be so excited for your new stampin up stuff. I'd like to make my Christmas cards this year and do it early. I'd been thinking of doing it in July but it looks like August will work out better. You will have SO much fun with your new stuff!

Bella napping with her Daddy doll is just the sweetest thing ever!!
Prayers for a safe, smooth transition to your new house; moving can be so stressful.
