Flying Tomorrow!


Well, tomorrow I finally get to get on the plane. Since I posted last I had to move my flight out one week - I won't bore you with the details of why! But tomorrow is finally upon me. It's been an incredibly emotional couple of weeks, saying goodbye to friends and family here.

Ben has found a house for us in Leeuwarden, which is in the northern part of Holland, in Friesland. That's a photo of it there at the top of this post - I cannot get it to drag down farther this time around, sorry!

There is a model horse show on the 13th that I'd love to go to, but it will all depend on how moving goes. Our house is available on the 8th, and my plan is to move in IMMEDIATELY! I am positively chomping at the bit to get my collection unpacked and onto the Ikea shelves I have picked out.

I'll post more photos of the move here when I get them, and also on Facebook for those of you that see me on there. :-)

Peace Out, USA!

Well, it's finally here. I have been silent on this blog for so long because I didn't want the world in general (aka my job) to know I was planning on leaving for Holland until it was actually final. Now they know, so I am free to post about it here!

My last day at work is on Friday 2/12, and I fly to Holland on Friday 2/19, after spending a week in Corvallis with my family.

I haven't been able to work on tack since October, and it's killing me! I should be able to move into our house in Leeuwarden on 3/1, and setting up my studio is a top priority. I have a couple of orders all set up and ready to go, and am SO excited thinking about having space to work again, not to mention all of my collection around me instead of half the world away packed up in boxes.

I will be updating this blog regularly again now that the cat's out of the bag, and will keep current with photos and such!

Thanks to anybody that stuck around through the dry spell!
