There is big news to report today from Luggage World. As most of you know, our home has been on the market since the beginning of May. Out of the blue, we received a “nice” offer last month in which the buyers asked for 30 day escrow. We took the deal. My family and I will be moving to my home town, San Diego, California at the end of next week.
Sadly, I have had to quit the job I just started; happily, the Carry-On will be able to grow up in America’s Finest City! My husband and I have been waiting for this moment for several years. It is a miracle for it to be finally coming to fruition.
Things are pretty hectic around here, as you can imagine. We’ve lived in Orange County since 1998. I am very very happy to be moving out from under the orange curtain. San Diego is a very different city than where I live now. We’ll be moving into an apartment where we can comfortably wait for our next permanent address to become available. We’re taking our time to find a great house.
With our relocation comes the changing of not only my physical address, but my email address, and other various URL’s that make The Land of Lost Luggage what it is today. The current blog will be up and running , but things will start to look a little different as my URL’s disappear. Having said that, I am happy to report that I will be opening a new blog on December 31, 2007- New Year’s Eve. I hope that you will continue to visit me at my new Typepad address! I will post the address as soon as it is available.
This year has been amazing! Over 40,000 blog hits since February! I love you all so much and I am so happy that you visit. I’ll disappear for a few days, but I’ll be back to reading your feeds in a week or so. I hope that you will find me again!
I wish you all a very wonderful holiday!

Well well...I am ready to mail out my "pay-it-forward" projects, just waiting for some stamps. I am not making Christmas Cards this year. I am taking a break. Please don't feel sad if you don't get a holday card from me.
I've been getting a lot of questions about my art journal. I named the book "Color Binge". Every day, while the Carry-On is eating breakfast, I hastily slop paper and paint together to make a page. I usually write the journaling later in the day or when something hits me. It's never really planned. I just go for it. I highly recommend this process...it is very liberating not to have to make something for someone else to purchase...or not towards a challenge. It is "raw Luggage". I am glad you like it! It makes me so happy to read all of your comments and it keeps me going! Afterall, there will end up being 120 pages in Color Binge once it is finished! Baby steps... have a nice Monday!

I've been hooked on this television show since I started to see the previews last summer. "Life Lessons With a Beat" was the catch line...I marked our calendar because I had a 'feeling" about this show.
I was so bored with the run of the mill cartoons that the Carry-On was watching...as soon as I saw the brightly orange clad DJ Lance Rock, I knew this was going to be something huge!
Fast forward- we've watched every episode over and over and the Carry-On and I activly particpate in every dance! It's Aweeeessssoommmme!
Here is a link to the Yo Gabba Gabba blog...which if you have kiddos of your own, you should totally watch! Even more inspiring the story of how the show came to be and a lesson to all about the work and dedication it takes to be great!
The minute the merchandise became available I ordered the Carry-On her faborite character "Toodee". The doll looks amazing and I can't wait to see her unwrap it!

If your name is "sarah" and you signed up for my pay-it-forward giveaway, please email me. I left a comment on your blog days ago and have not received your response. Fair notice, if I don't hear from you by Monday...I have to pay-it-forward to another reader!

It feels really good to be home today with nothing on the agenda. The best part is that we've got empty schedules tomorrow as well! I am looking forward to getting some painting done. I hope you have a great day too! TGIF!

I always wonder why things happen like they do and I wonder about why things happen when they do....
Happy Monday! We're doing our usual routine today..park, groceries..blah blah, work tonight. I hope you had a great weekend! Weekends fly by really fast for me these days since I basically cut mine in half. I really appreciate the quality time I am able to spend with my family!
Oh, how could I forget? I went to the Paper Source again yesterday. It was every bit as magical as it was last weekend. I am planning to go there next weekend too. I found Anahata's cards there and they are magnificent! Budget permitting, I may try and pick some up next Sunday.
