The Big Sale

I don’t like garage sales.  I don’t like going to them and I hate having them.  So I am not having a garage sale for my big move.  I have sold quite a bit of the big stuff via word of mouth and Craig’s List, and I have already made multiple trips to Goodwill with books and small stuff.

But for crafting supplies, that’s a different story.  I am not doing a public sale, but for people that know me, I am opening the studio up tomorrow and there is a LOT of stuff to sell.  One might think that I have nothing left but, trust, me, I still have too much!!

Packing Rule #1: Don’t sell the Bed First!

To get you up to date:  I have a contract on my house with the closing scheduled for the end of June. And I have an RV (2015 Open Range 427BHS fifth wheel) on order.  So I decided to start listing furniture, etc on Craigs List.  (FYI: I don’t like garage sales and thought this would be the way to go).  Well, on Craigs List, you can only list like items every other day, so first I listed my dining room set (click HERE if you are in the market) and then I listed a Kincaid print (HERE) and then, on Sunday, I listed my bedroom set.


Within hours, I had 2 emails about it, and the first one came out and bought it plus some tables and I threw in a clock.  They took the bed and nightstands and will be back this afternoon for the dresser and chese.  So then my bedroom looked like this:


Hmmmm, where to sleep??  Solution!  I had a guest room, so I dissembled, moved, and re-assembled that bed for my room!  And added some bookcases to put my clothes.  Ta da!!

Bed New

I can assure you: this bed and the bookcases will NOT be leaving until I am ready!!  But on a positive note: I remember how much I liked this quilt, and since I was planning to keep my alpaca pillow, this is what I am going to use in my RV!

Stampin’ Up! and Project Life – Together!

Project Life Preorder

A little while ago, I mentioned the wonderful partnership between Stampin’ Up! and Project Life and now you can start ordering!!  Here is how it works:  you take a photo and stick in in a pocket of your scrapbook page. Then you grab a journaling card (they are so cute!) and you can stamp or embellish the card if you want, or you can just write on it about the photo.  Stick that in another pocket and you are done!!  Now, do it again! Spend your time MAKING memories instead of SCRAPPING them!

Right now, you can pre-order some amazing products, and next month, there will be even more.

Here is what you can order now:
