Two Pink Peas is Back & Lot's of Updates!

I am back and I wanted to share a few things.
You all knew that we were building a new house...
Well it is DONE! I cannot believe it and I wanted to share a few photo's for you.
 
This is our new kitchen..well part of it anyway.


This is another view of the kitchen and you can see it opens
to our family room.
 

This is a view of the kitchen from the family room.
I am in LOVE with my frosted Pantry door.
 
 
This is our formal dining room.
It shows our raised panel wainscoting on the bottom.
The top is this very beautiful rich red color. I LOVE it!
It is absolutely stunning in real life.
 
 
We have a tray ceiling with hidden lights. It just sets the right mood when those are on.
 
 
If you look closely you can see the light in the tray ceiling as it is on.

 
This is my craft room. It is a beautiful tan color on top and a darker brown on bottom. The photo does not show the correct color of the paint.

 
The closet to my craft room.

 
The windows in my craft room. My craft room faces the front of the house so I will be able to keep an eye on my kids while they are outside playing.
 
We are closing tomorrow and will move in this weekend.
I cannot wait to get settled in. Once I get to my craft room, which will be one of the most important rooms for me, I will be posting lots of photo's and videos for you to see.

I cannot wait to unpack all of my craft supplies and organize them. I have not been able to craft since we sold our house and started building this one.
 
To keep me busy while our house was being built I have been babysitting my beautiful grandbaby McKenzie. That is while we were not having meetings on the house and picking out everything we needed. It was so hard to believe just how much work goes into building a house. But it was so worth it.
It took us very close to 8 months and I have really missed crafting. My first project will be making a name banner for McKenzie. I already bought this gorgeous fabric paper pad for her banner and I just need to get my Imagine or Cricut out and work on it. I really hopes it turns out beautiful.
McKenzie's bedroom is pink and brown in color so I will match her name banner to her nursery.
 
About 2 weeks ago I had to have gallbladder surgery. I never had gallbladder issues until I started to get these terrible attacks. I had already knew I had stones and lots of sludge because I had an ultrasound of my kidneys and gallbladder. So once my surgeon saw the ultrasound he said it needed to come out. I am not 100% yet as I had a bad reaction to the derma bond they used. My incisions got infected which was not fun to go through that. I am not still healed yet but I am on my way.
 
Once we get settled in I will be posting a great giveaway to celebrate our new house and that Two Pink Peas is back!
It feels like it has been forever since I crafted last.
 
I hope everyone is doing good and I really miss you all so much. But keep your eyes posted for my giveaway and photo's and videos showing the progress of my craft room.
I have tons of other photo's to share to show off our house.
Those will come very soon!
If any of you have any advice on organizing craft rooms I would love to hear your suggestions or comments.
 
Have a wonderful day everyone and I will see you very soon!
 
Big Cricut Hugs!

Awe, you have been through some heavy stuff, really wish you quick healing but not rushed, your health is no1!! No 2 is how exciting things will be once you have all your crafty stash organised. I'm no expert there but have seen some cool ideas on Pinterest. You could look through that & some magazines while you heal. The house looks amazing, TFS. Take care. Caroline in UK :)))
