sihayadesigns: (Magic: Luna)
I haven't written much lately because I have been SUPER BUSY. Yesterday was packing day for all of the Sihaya & Co. Summer boxes, I just finished a big wholesale order for Twig the Fairy, I'm starting another for Faerie Mag, and it's wedding season, so we've had a different nuptial-related thing to do every weekend for the last few.

But. News. Exciting news.

The bank accepted our offer on a house we REALLY WANTED. If all goes according to plan, we will be moving to historic Old Ellicott City by summer's end.

The house is a 1/2 mile walk from all of my favorite places: my favorite date spot, my favorite coffee shop, a teahouse that specializes in high tea, and tons of little artists' shops that could carry my work. Oh, and a wine store. :)

We still have to do inspections/closing/etc all that jazz, but house is honestly so great. Doesn't look like much from the outside-- it's a townhouse built in the 20's, and the front could use an update. But it's 3 br, 2 bath, brand new carpet (which, sadly, we'll probably end up pulling up-- in my studio for sure, but likely in most of the rooms within a few years because there is hardwood under it that just needs to be refinished). The bathrooms are teensy, but one has a tub WITH JETS. It does lack closet space, so organizers are definitely going to be necessary for my studio space. But the backyard? Has a giant, new-looking deck and a frikkin' KOI POND.

I seriously cannot wait to live in a place a) that I love, b) where I can walk to things (!!!), and c) where I can grab a hot latte and ogle really pretty Autumn leaves and historic buildings.
