Frugal Friday With Marsha 6/6/14

I have spent most all of my free time this week decluttering, organizing, and pricing things and boxing them up to have a yard sale this weekend.
Now the weather is not cooperating at all. Temps are going to be perfect for a sale with highs only in the upper 70's and lower 80's, but it's supposed to be storming off and on from now until Sunday.

Boo! to the weather!
We put half of the stuff in the garage but there is just no way to fit it all in there. It's in there now, but you can't get in the garage.

I can look on the bright side, I guess, that we have another week to continue to look through things and get more things priced to put out to sell. And say some heavy prayers that it's not raining next weekend.

I'm happy to say that one thing that I got totally cleaned out and organized is one side of our storage in the hallway.
It now holds only the towels and then I have our sheet sets and all of the grandchildren's bedding in there now. That is a good feeling.
Since moving in here all of their bedding has been kept just thrown into my craft room closet. It's always such trouble to dig it out around my totes of completed crafts.

I have several areas that I now hope to get to this next week before the next possible sale.

What have you been up to this week?

Squidoo Hopping 6/5/14

It's one of my grandchildren's birthdays today.  If you've been following me for awhile you know that I started doing This Day In History lenses.
I was fully intending on making a lens for every day of the year, but I was starting by doing dates of the birthdays in my family.

Some day I really would like to even finish getting birthdays in!  It wouldn't hurt to attempt to go ahead and try to start then filling in other dates.

I went in today to June 5 and added birthday pictures of Zelda to the bottom on my lens.  I will add a picture from her 3rd birthday later today after her party.
Then I hope to go add pictures to all of the grandkids' birth dates.

This is just one of MANY ways that I can be updating lenses.

Wild days all the way around at my house. 

Happy squidooing!!

WIP Wednesday--Goodnight Irene is Finally Caught Up!

I didn't get much else done....well anything else done....this past week, but my Goodnight Irene sew along project is finally caught up through May!

I have my border blocks ready to work on at sit n' sew this month and will finish the border at the quilt retreat later this month.  That will take care of keeping up with June.

I have a couple of other things put in a bag to work on at sit n' sew as well.  It's not until the 13th so I will need to see what I can work on this week.

The past few days, and the rest of this week my WIP is again sorting, decluttering, organizing and such around the house.
