Have you?

Ever been transfered across country?  If so please share with me your tips for dealing with such a big life change.  Especially when it comes to doing it with kids.

I was on another blog – Angela from Unity and she had a link to Shimelle’s blog.  Not quite sure who Shimelle is but I know I have quite a few friends that have taken classes from her and frequent her blog.

I really like this idea and I think I am going to give it a try.


I can commit to taking pictures 12 times in one year, or once a month.  That is do able.

My website http://365daysofcrafts.com Bio- Growing up in a small mid-western town, Niki Meiners was surrounded by a modest, resourceful and very entrepreneurial family. Her simple upbringing spurred her "Can do" attitude and gave her the confidence to try any challenge placed before her. She knew there was more out there than just her small town and set off after high school to explore the world. It was through these travels that she discovered her love of art and her desire to make the world a prettier place. It was not until she suffered a paralyzing illness that she realized she wanted to reconsider her corporate career as a Chief Paper Pusher, and her thoughts immediately turned to her first passion, art. In 2003 she began an odyssey that would take her from product design to publication and everywhere in between. She is known for her distinctive, high quality creations that feature a diverse mix of styles and highly creative approach to even the smallest detail. Niki is an Idea Architect, easily outlining every project from concept to completion. Her creations are simultaneously beautiful and functional and her in depth knowledge of the industry allows her to produce projects with a specific understanding of both the consumers and the manufacturers. This knowledge has allowed her work to be featured in the industries leading craft and lifestyle publications and manufacturers’ websites. nikimeiners at gmail.com

    Niki, last time I moved across country, I had no husband or kids. But I’ll tell you this, the best thing you can take with you is a sense of adventure and anticipation that great things will come of the move.

    Another thing that really helps is to be organized. Both times the AF moved me, I had a box labled UNPACK ME FIRST. It had sheets for the bed, a couple of plastic plates and silverware, a couple of pots, some toilet paper and paper towel. It was a lifesaver.

    Good luck!
