We bought a house...


Some exciting news at My Sweet Prints HQ.... we bought a new house on the weekend! AHHH!

Ek, now we have to sell our house... and have a baby... and then move (hopefully all in that order, hehehe).

We've arranged a long settlement so that we will have Baby B here and then move.

I really love the new house and I CAN'T WAIT to share photos when we move in. 
It's got a large space which will be my dedicated work area 'Haaaaaalllelujah!' 

We weren't even looking to move but feel in love with the house and it's been a bit all-consuming over the last few weeks in the lead up and negotiations etc. And so if I'm not blogging so much over the next few weeks it's probably because I'm cleaning and tidying for the two open houses a week (oh my goodness, how exhausting!)

I've already started a Pinterest pinboard to collect all my inspiration for the new house. You can follow the 'New House Inspiration' board here: http://pinterest.com/mysweetprints/new-house-inspiration/ and it will give you a little idea of the style of the house.

Anyway, that's the excitement going on here :)

Have a great day everyone,

  4. Oh how exciting, what great news. You will be very busy over the next little while, good luck with it all. I just visited your Inspiration Board and love, love, love the photos. You have very similar taste to me. Does this mean it is an old house with high ceilings and lovely featrues? Can't wait to see photos. Hope the sale of your current house goes well. Gxx

  7. Now that IS exciting. Congratulations and thank heavens for long settlements - in NZ they can be as short as two weeks which shocked me. Good luck with all the planning and enjoy the pinning! A x

  8. SOOOO excited for you!! Can't wait to see the touches you add to your new nest. A long settlement sounds like a very good idea with your bub due in the middle of all the chaotic house goings-on :) Just popped across to your Pinterest Board and can really see the vision you have for your new home - stunning!! Hope the home opens go well and you aren't too flat out cleaning :)

  13. Congratulations sweety,..that is Awesome news! How exciting! Looks like both our years are taking off in the same way...a move...new home and a baby on the way ; ) All exciting stuff..and youve got to be praising the lord for a new working area...yeeeehaaaa!

    Try not to over exert yourself with the packing and cleaning..I really pushed myself a little too hard and paid for it later, be sure to ask for help when you need it..your rest is important too during these last few weeks.
    Cannot wait to hear and see more about it....is it still in the same area?

    Congrats again lovely...so happy for you all x
