Cleaning for a better cause.

So I should be picking up the house today since Colin's parents fly in tomorrow morning. Like normal I put it off. Monday I went button hunting with my friend Mandy. We found a few good buttons for my bracelets but not near as many as I had hoped :( Tuesday I accomplished nothing except making signs and sharing my last bottle of Michigan wine with Kelsey while we had a girls night, well until Colin came home anyway.

I am packaging up some great supplies that I have been hording in my sewing stash. I have a very ambitious friend that is going to be making all of her and her children's clothing for the next year. Since I have so many items that I probably wont use or throw away I am sending them to a better home. Here is a picture of one reason my house is still not ready for guests.

And here is another reason my house is not dining room table is covered in finished items, packaging, and tags. In addition the coffee table is covered in pictures for inspiration and bead containers. Colin is being way more supportive than I ever imagined since our house doesn't normally look like a bomb went off. Today I really need to go get my valentines gift and clean. Ahhhhh.....sadly I just checked FEDEX and my supplies will also be here today. Guess I can't open the box :(
Happy Note: We are going skiing Friday!!!!! And it snowed a little this morning.

Hey, thanks for mentioning me:) And for offering to send that stuff! like I said, I'll try my best to put it to good use.

Good luck with the in-laws. Just found out my MIL will be here in March, just after I get back from Vegas for my sister's bachelorette party. I'm excited. Maybe this time I just won't clean my house at all, make her happy:)

Oh, and my sister is thinking about buying something from your store for her future Mother In Law's birthday- I told her if you wanted something in particular just to convo you or something, but she said she has her eye on a bracelet already.
