Whew!! Clean House 2010 is still in motion. It has slowed down a bit, though. Lots of babysitting, a very important wedding and some extra hours at work coming up will put the whole project about 2 weeks behind.
So happy to have a clean bedroom and kitchen (well, nearly. didn't get to the fridge or floor)! Woo-Hoo!! It's amazing how much stuff we don't need hangs around this house(and garbage. Wow!) Good riddance, Dirt & Junk!

But not often enough...So, I'm putting aside my needles & thread while I beat this house into submission with duster & vacuum. All corners will be scrubbed and all closets will be sorted!I'm calling it "Clean House 2010" There are many lists and a scheduled plan! Week 1-master bedroom-was already a success!(We even painted it "herb tea"-after 4 other color tries) Next up--a 2 week plan to clean the kitchen. (I'd show before & after pics, but then you'd see just how dirty it is!)

I love Christmas time so! And it lasts for such a long time that I always feel a bit let down when New Years comes and it's time to put Christmas away. That's what keeps it special.(putting it all away is so much work, too!)
These are some of the gifts I made this year. Several were completed the day before they were opened, of course and some you've already seen. I think the recipients were all very happy! (not pictured:one more cupcake skirt, a pretty bag, cute potholders, and a set of ugly but sentimental napkins, and 6 gift baskets of snacks each including a mix CD of Chrismas songs, or a DVD of family photos made by my love)I wanted to make lots more, but had to get realistic and let it go.
