A new home in Jakarta, Indonesia

Hello there! We finally made it into our new home in Jakarta, Indonesia- 8,000 miles away from Falls Church, VA. We have enjoyed our cross country road trip from Washington DC to San Francisco, made it sea to shining sea. We really enjoyed visiting with all friends and family along those 3,000 miles.

We are getting used to a new routine. My husband plunged himself right into work right away and got sick last week (but he enjoys his new job and seems really really excited). My eldest son starts kindergarten this week, a big milestone in our family. Everyone is doing well.

Still living out of suitcases, so really until our shipment arrives, I will not have much of a card making supply to speak of, which explains why all of the cards that follow today are super super simple. I stamped directly onto patterned papers on all the projects below with Basic Black ink. Enjoy!!
