Our Container Came!!

Friday morning, our container from Korea came.  I was soooo excited to finally get our stuff I couldn't wait to start unpacking.  I wasn't sure if it was the same container that was filled in Korea but Rocketman had jotted down the container number and sure enough, it was the same container.
Can you believe we recognized many of the movers from our previous move.  They were the same ones that packed us up to go to Korea in 2007, unpacked us in 2009 and then repacked us in 2010.  I bet they were wondering what was going on with us.
These were our kitchen boxes.  We did the unpacking so we could do it at our own speed. I'm not practical with my unpacking.  I unpack all the boxes and place the things all over counters and the floor.  I stayed in the kitchen a little while to put just a few things away and then I was off to the our bedroom to unpack our clothing.
About a third of our boxes had been inspected by U.S. Customs.  They did a lousy job of taping the boxes back up with many of them still open.
 This is looking into my craftroom after unpacking all my craft things.  Looks a little like a "Hoarders" episode.
This is my craft room after a day of unpacking.  I still have a lot of work to do in it.  Just about everything made without getting broken except for my large styrofoam projects.  They were packed with other things and broke.  I'm fine with that and just very thankful that all my hanji things made it intact.

Those two bookcases on the right are new and are where my maedeup cording used to hang.  I really needed more shelf space to I decided to put the cording in the basement.  Maybe someday I'll have a huge craft room but for now this will have to do.  My craft room used to be in the basement until the kids starting moving out.

I had forgotten all the things I had bought in Korea like hanji paper.  I organized it by color and I'll take a picture of it all when I get a chance.  The paper is gorgeous!!!  Better get back to work.


  1. I am so glad everything arrived safely.. but you sure are going to be busy Becky! :)

  2. Yay!

    By the way, I think we all have a room in our house that looks like that. :)

  3. You are incredibly enthusiastic crafter. We say moving is pain and then you had 4 packings and 4 unpackings in 5 years (is it correct? Your movings are little bit complicate, we need maths). Don't you have any joint pain, body aches or low back pain, which I have, as a usual, whenever I move? I am nervous of moving.

  4. Holy moly what a lot of boxes to unload. Love the photos and your story. Becky, your craft room looks better than mine and I haven't moved :) I know you are thrilled to have all your items and to discover things you have forgotten about!

  5. Thanks everyone for your comments. I didn't realize that we had had 4 packings and unpackings in 5 years but it's true. No wonder I'm so tired.
