OK. I admit it. I'm a
|I don't even knit or crochet|
I'm selling (CHEAP) or giving away EVERYTHING I own and a friend brought her 2 maids over yesterday so they could "shop" and said, "Why in the WORLD do you have so many tables"?!? I'm talking tables that you can dine at. I just counted 10. Some of them are stacked on top each other to hold my 18 plastic bins of fabric. Big bins.
We won't even talk about buttons but I have almost as many buttons as I do junk jewelry. When I was packing for this last trip to FL, I only took what I would grab if there were a fire. Eighty (80) POUNDS of jewelry came BACK to the States with me. EIGHTY pounds.

No sense discussing the linens or beads, charms, trims, bottle caps, glass, glass, glass and more glass. I must have 20 bowls in my kitchen. The ones you use to serve food in...not eat from. Not gonna count how many plates I own.
Are you getting the picture? Can you see why I was running around in circles wondering what the hell I was going to do with all this stuff last week?!? I mean...it's crunch time. 2 months. Gulp.
So...what do I do? I get into the playroom and cover a broken plastic lid on a vintage plastic container that will most likely get thrown away.
But hey, I used up some of my $%# pounds of paper stash...and oh yeah...a little of my 47 or so containers of glue.
It's all different types of glue you know. I mean, you never know what you might need. Right?
Thinking of the paper makes me think of the stamps and stencils I haven't even unearthed in months. Oh yeah and all those cute little scissors that make different patterns. They're under all of my bags and purses...which are all bagged and boxed neatly of course.
I'll just continue to do what I've been doing for the past few days after walking around in circles for a week. I'll go into the playroom
|did I mention I have 4 sewing machines...not counting the 2 play ones I bought for Sophia?|
and use up as much of this stuff as I possibly can before I have to throw it away. and sob uncontrollably thinking about leaving Sophia
The pictures here are what I've accomplished this week.
|a pot holder. Really?|
I'll post about the lessons I'm learning one of these days. Once I've really gotten over learning them.
I always love to say, ''Create Your Life''. Because I believe we do.
WHAT have I created??!!!??
|papier mache gone bad (used old starch instead of glue of flour)|
Maybe a few happy Colombians that I'm giving my stuff to.
Create Your Life...but...you might want to think about it first.
