Moving Sale

OK, who's idea was it to have a Moving Sale this weekend? Oh yeah, Me. Friday it was steady, Saturday, not so much, but we did sell enough to pay for the new floors in the living and dining rooms and hallway so I guess it was OK. LOL

That's Kilo in the middle of the photo. He wanted everyone who came to the sale to play ball with him. Most did. He had a great time too.

Funny thing, everything I didn't want to sell sold. See that canopy in the background - SOLD! DH also sold lawn furniture we could use when we have people over to BBQ. I have begged him not to sell too much or we won't have anything to sit on until the house sells. We have two more weeks to spruce it up and then it is on the market. Whoo Hoo. Keep you fingers crossed. Want to buy a house?

80 to 100...degrees that is!

We wanted it and it is finally here. What is it? Hot weather. At least I am not working at the fair this year. It was torture last year working in the Exhibit building without air conditioning in 100+ heat. Yikes!

We are packing and purging...the 2P's. We decided to put the house up for sale and sell everything we can not get in a 10' x 10' storage shed and a 30 ft. 5th wheel. Do you know how cathartic and yet releasing it is? Should have done it years ago.

Anyway I am having a huge , I mean HUGE Craft sale in August. If you want to get on my email list for dates and some of what I am selling just leave you email in the comment section.

Back to painting, purging and packing...Now we are the 3 Ps'.

Summer is finally here...I think!

I bought this for $1 at Michael's and really like it, but it was small.

My version. I created this using the Design Studio, George, Home Accents along with paper from Dream Street and Grungepaper. It will fit cards and envelopes(A2) and would be great for gift giving.

Here they are side by side. Both are 6" wide, but you can see the differences. The Grungepaper is so flexible and easy to shape. I added magnets to keep the lid shut.

This project is my Cricut class at Roseburg Book and Stationery in July. You can sign-up for the class at the store. This month you do not need to have a Cricut to do the class. I decided to have a non-Cricut cutting class every other month. You still will learn what you can cut with your Cricut for the project, but I will have all the parts cut for everyone.
