I’m not sure if the garage sale was a success or not. I made $232.75. Is that good for three days of work? Thursday and Friday were the busiest. Saturday was dead. It was so dead that around lunch time I started posting bags and boxes of stuff on freecycle. I also filled a bunch of bags for the People’s City Mission. I snapped pics of anything I thought would sell on eBay and boxed that up, too. Whatever doesn’t sell will also go to the Mission.

I have cleared out an amazing amount of stuff from our house and I feel like we still have too much. Part of me wants to keep going on this major spring cleaning frenzy, but I have other things in my life that need attention, like feeding my family, washing our clothes, and vacuuming up the giant dust bunnies lurking in the corners of our house.

I also realized that I really missed two things: sewing and blogging. Today, as soon as M went down for a nap, I sewed up this little dress.



Afterward, I finished another pin cushion and wrote this blog post. Now I have to get back to the house, dinner and laundry. If you need a Bella fix, visit Lauren’s new blog Stay Classy.

    Julie–the amount from your garage sale is GREAT, in my opinion! Also, your dress is super cute! I’ve sewn up (almost) 2 more bonnets, and am starting a 3rd tomorrow…and then Kristen wants one for herself! so by wednesday I’ll probably need help with a new project. See you then.
