Packing Tape-Transfer

We are moving! To Dallas! And every time I tape up a box my mind wonders to the many uses for packing tape that don’t have a thing to do with moving-lol! This ‘packing tape transfer’, is not nearly as fun as the crafty kind. We are excited though to transfer our family to a place where my DH (darling hubby) won’t have to fly a day-long commute to work. After 12 years of that kind of living arrangement we are happily walking into phase two of ‘See Nate Commute’, a 25 minute drive to the airport!


During our last trip, on the flight from Springfield to Chicago, I left my Art Journal on the plane.

It was full of lino cut images that I was turning into journal pages. I had it about 3/4 full of almost done pages like these, just waiting for the finishing journaling and doodling.

So if any of you see some of these faces ‘out there’ let me know! I’d so love to find this journal again.

The one nice thing is that because these pages all started with my lino cuts, I can use the same images to begin new pages. I still have all my hand carved stamps and will begin again. Just like our move, where we will begin a new chapter in our lives.  One we hope will bring us more family time with Nate home more often, less stress with him trying to commute a long distance to work, and with new opportunities for growth. It feels good to move somewhere where we already know some people and already have offers of help unloading on the other end of the move.

So you may not hear much from me in the next couple of weeks and now you know why:-)

Journey on…
