Moving to a new home ....

Not sure how many are still out there hanging with me but I have some news.

I am building a new home.  The blue prints or builders plans were approved last week and should be sent back to the contractor by mid-week.  If the weather holds and we don't get too many late spring or summer storms, I should be able to move in by January; February at the latest.

I will be spending any free time over the next two weeks purging this house of 20+ years of junk so it can go on the market by the end of June. 

Everything in the house will have to go into storage until the new home is ready for move-in.  I have most of the craft room in boxes (40 small boxes so far) and I spent far too much time struggling on what to put in a couple carriers so I can craft if I have time between now and January. 

So far that has filled a 40 qt container with the following:.
~MFT and PTI Multi Pack card stock
~Watercolor and Neenah white papers
~Copic Markers
~Approximately 24 Ink pads (various) including a pad w/ embossing ink
~Tools: Misti, mini ScorPal, papercutter, scissors, heatgun, needle-nose gripper, gridpaper, Big Shot w/ plates (this is in a separate totebag)
~Zig watercolor pens
~White and gold embossing powders
~Mixed color sequins
~18 Stamp sets: 3 floral, 3 cute animal sets, 2 Christmas, 5 sentiment sets, 5 miscellaneous
~adhesives: double-sided tape, Stick-it, Multi-medium, glue dots, demensional tabs, Tombow rolling tape
~Dies: geometric shapes (2), frame dies (6), sentiment dies (2), coordinating dies for selected stamp sets
~Washi tapes (for cards as well as for working techniques)

So if you were going to be displaced for 8 to 9 months and you have only one container or maybe a tote bag or two, what would you take?
