The Office-Part Two: 2 Men and a Truck

Before the move a friend asked me if I was hiring Two Men and a Truck to come move the office. I replied, "No, more like two parents and a husband".So the three biggest cheerleaders of my life spent their weekend helping me relocate "just a few pieces". Isn't it odd how things multiply when you move? I swear I did not have this many samples before, did you see how small the room was I worked out of?

After many long hours we left on Sunday night with it looking like this...

Which was a lot better than earlier that day.
I can't thank my parents and Patrick enough (here they are fixing the window, what I can I say, I had to get a picture- I am my mother's child). Speaking of mothers I am not sure how she escaped without me getting a single picture of her in action, she only loaded and unloaded roughly 5 million items from the car. On top of being pregnant and not much help, my chronic back injury decided to join the party (dumb disc, I hate you more than my computer virus), which meant even more work for them. To say I am grateful to them would be a massive understatement, they are the best "coworkers" a girl could ask for.

Needless to say I was sad to see them go and Monday I started the daunting task of organizing. I will say it is really coming around. More pictures on the way soon....


P.S.- Happy Cinco de Mayo, one of my favorite days of the year!

I came over to visit you blog from Facebook.

This is really exciting that you get a new place to work. I think that it is so neat to have it in a historical building.

Best Wishes getting organized.Organizing and setting up are always my favorite part after a moving.

Isn't it wonderful to have such supportive family members like this? When we moved last summer, it was the help of family and friends that really made the process bearable. Good luck in your new digs - I'm sure you will create fabulous designs there. Hope your back feels better soon!

Oh it's going to be so great!! Super big congrats to you.

Looks like everyone is clamoring to come help you set up shop, so send any overflow my way. I may not have piles of beautiful fabric samples, but I still have piles people. :-)

Yay! I know you're so excited for your new office. Your help looks like they were good! :)

Oi Vei, organizing is such a task, isn't it? Every time I have to organize something, I spend at least 10 minutes staring at the project in front of me. Good luck!
