  1. Decluttering and organizing

    by , 01-01-2009 at 10:40 PM (a step in the right direction)
    Well I did not reach my fall fling goal of getting rid of 100 items, In my defence I did join the challenge late.

    I am going ahead with this goal until I reach the 1000 items that I wanted to get rid of.

    I got rid of another 79 items tonight. Mostly clothes that the kids have out grown but thats 79 more items added to my total

    I am in a major decluttering mood, I am going through stuff and trying to organize things so that we can start 2009 ...

    I decided to change my project a month for this month, it looks like I am not quite ready to get my master bedroom in order.

    I decided to go through the 8 boxes of clothes in the basement that is packed away for the kids. That is not including coats.

    My reason for picking this goal is that the baby now 16 months old is starting to out grow what is is currently wearing so I need to take out the next size.

    So what needs to be done here is:

  4. FIrst handmade gift of the year~

    I decided to expand my handmade Christmas challenge to handmade gifts period.

    I designed my MIL a set of hand towels. Yes Id did have to buy the towels, but they were bought months ago on sale. They love to camp, like we do, 4 to 5 months out of the year, not necessarily everyday but at least every weekend. So I made her this darling set.

  5. Start of a new year.....

    2008 was a really tough year. I am hoping that 2009 will be better, but then again, I say that every year. We want so badly to expand our family and add on a baby. In 2008 we underwent 2 fresh IVF cycles and 1 frozen cycle. All of those attempts ended with no baby. January was our first attempt and it left me physically and mentally spent. We were left with one embryo to freeze, so we used that for the frozen cycle in April. We decided to take the summer off and do another fresh IVF cycle ...
