Mr. Mouse and I moved from a teesny, terrible apt into a much nice condo-style apartment. It took me about 2 months to get everything up on the walls, but on Christmas Eve I went into a frenzy and put a lot of it up. For how little I thought about everything I am pretty happy with how it looks, and even more happy with being able to display my swap-swag, family items and crafty stuff from over the years in a way that suits our new living arrangements.
I finally feel like I am in a home!
