As we prepare for our house move next week, I’m in a serious packing frenzy and the house is full of cardboard boxes, bubble wrap and packing tape. I usually get pretty excited about packing, and I did at least enjoy bundling up the first few boxes of books, CDs and fragile treasures…..it gets boring fairly fast though, and trickier and trickier as the house gets further into disarray! So I was thinking that a distraction was in order, and that perhaps if I had some fun stuff to pack with, I’d get excited about it again. And what better distraction than shopping……
Check out these super cute packing tapes! Adorable aren’t they? I’d be a demon with the tape gun if I had these, and I bet the moving men would take extra special care with our treasures too!
I have a collection of label makers of course, but just think how productive I’d be with the DYMO LabelWriter 450! It comes with proprietary DYMO label software and enables you to create and print address, shipping, file, folder and barcode labels…..and at a speed of 51 labels per minute! Unpacking would surely be a breeze if I had this baby to get organised with!
Of course packing and moving calls for a lot of lists. I don’t need much encouragement to list really, but I’d list all day on this adorable little note book. It’s even got a Cooper dog look-a-like on it (one of his nicknames is Bambi!).
New home means new stationery. Obviously. Maybe I’ll wait until we’re in our ‘forever home’, but I really do fancy some proper headed writing paper. I’d keep it in my correspondence box and write on it with my dippy pen before blotting it like I’m in a Dickens novel.
Actually we’ve already told most people who’d like to know our new address, but still, it’s a nice excuse for some fancy cards, right?
And what to put on the back of the envelopes?1 A personalised stamp of course! This one has a picture of Digby dog on it, so it has to be this one.
Aaaanyway…..I suppose id’ better get back to the *actual* packing…..
Wish me luck!
