Catching Up.....

I know it's been an awful long time since I last posted. It has been a crazy few months. We have gone through our house with vengeance, cleaning out over 16 years of stuff.........lots and lots of stuff. I think we made over 20 to 25 trips to Goodwill with furniture, dishes, kids old clothes and toys. My daughter and I have actually been all packed up since March of 2011, so it was mostly stuff that was just sitting in the basement or in closets. I am still going through drawers that are full with all sorts of odds and ends. It is truly amazing how much junk we all hoard. I have a friend that just moved also and she had the same experience. Years of stuff that just slowly takes over your house and suffocates you without you even being aware of it being there. I am now in the mindset that every year, nay every 6 months, go through the house, opening every drawer, closet and cubby hole and really looking at what is lurking there....and then throw it away, recycle it, donate it! We live in a country of abundance, but it doesn't mean it has to all be stored in our homes. :)

I am relieved to add that we have sold our house, closing soon and moving on with our lives. I am looking forward to unpacking my boxes.....especially my Stampin' Up! boxes. I have been going crazy this last year without my markers and Pastels. I did breakdown and purchase some of the goodies in our Occasions Mini Catalog PLUS since Sale-A-Bration is still going on, I got even more FREEBIES. Woo-Hoo!!!

I will post a pic tomorrow that uses our new Framelits Dies, I just LOVE THEM!!!! As always they coordinate with our stamp sets in the Mini. Please jump over to my website, to check out the Mini and the Sale-A-Bration catalog also.
