A Good Time Was Had By All

Celebrating the holidays is a joy, but it’s also nice to get your house back in order….even if it did take three days.

The BOOMINATOR has been annihilating the Christmas clean-up 😀

Lucky me, I have a dedicated craft room and currently on the Cut File Team for Paige Taylor Evans. I mostly enjoy making 12x12 layouts and Mini Albums. Thanks so much for coming by 💛

  1. I always wear my red pantsuit when I shampoo the carpet, too. What a coincidence!

    Love the photos. I’m a fan of a good clean out, but it sure is a lot of work. Congratulations on getting thing packed and organized for next year.

    Thanks for the ping-back. You are so sweet to do that.


    1. LOL, you’re so fancy Alys 😉 Animal Couriers commented below that the Electrolux team did a great job on the grass….LOL, I’m pretty sure we had carpet that colour at home at one time in the 70’s.
      I did get everything packed and somewhat organized. Could’ve done better but we are getting company tomorrow and so finally I just closed the boxes and moved them downstairs. We’ve both ping’d each other tonight….ha are we on the same wave length or what? mwaaaa xK


      1. That we are and I love it!

        How fun to have guests. I hope you all have a wonderful time. It’s unusual for me, but this time of year is very busy. So I have one new client on Saturday and another on Sunday. Usually I work Monday – Friday.

        Mwaaaa to you too.


        1. Oh, that’s exciting. I know they will just love you and no doubt have better lives after you’re done with them, good luck and don’t forget to have ‘Alys’ time….enjoy! xoK


  2. So good to “FOLLOW” you! And how did you know….I just finished this project yesterday! But the packing away turned into cleaning out….Goodwill bags….I am a monster when I get started!!! 🙂 Looking forward to your project!! ♥ paula


    1. HI Paula, thanks for your ‘follow’ and welcome, welcome. I’ve just been bombing around your lovely posts as well. Congratulations on getting thru the clean up. I was also trying to purge and organize but after 3 days of a giant mess I finally just started closing boxes. We are renting while we look for a new home and we have stuff here, there and everywhere. Sugar & Babe look like a lot of fun, I’m looking forward to getting to know them too. Cheers!


      1. We have been where you are….we had stuff in storage for a couple of years while in transition. THEN we realized we didn’t need much of it when we moved it….and the get rid of monster started in! We have moved a lot and it makes it easier for me to think before I buy…..plus to get rid. I am sentimental….so it took a lot to get me to this place! haha! The pups are a LOT of fun and rule the house. So glad to know you now!!! Yay for 2013! psb ♥


    1. Hi Lea, there’s so many other fun things to do when you’re young…I completely understand. I forced myself to get it done since I had started and made a big mess but I’m getting company this weekend….nothing like inviting people over to light a fire under your feet. Thanks for visiting my Pinterest, I’ll swing over to yours too! 🙂


  3. LOL! I love how you looked at the clean up. I did it in phases, yet somehow I managed to leave several things behind. Those will be put away once I am done with this whole flu thing (God willing, it will be soon).

    To be honest, I am kind of relieved. Jasper kept knocking his ball into the tree (although I may have been at fault in some cases) and I lost several glass ornaments this year. Safer in boxes I guess. 🙂


    1. Well dang hey, everyone has had this nasty flu…I got it while I was on vacation in California early Dec…while that was a bummer, I was happy to be healthy at Christmas..I hope you feel better soon. I lost two vintage glass ornaments this year too…but it was all me, butter fingers. Oh I was so mad at myself..oh well. I could forgive Jasper, too cute to scold. 😀 Thanks a bunch for your message Mel!


    1. LOL…..I didn’t even notice that but you are sooo right. Crazy carpet colours in the ’70’s, OMG that made me laugh…you bet, Blossum’s no fool…Haaa ha. Thanks for making me laugh : D


  4. It does feel good to get the house back to normal after the holidays. It took me two days to put everything away here. Now, I am trying to figure out how to decorate for VAL-entine’s Day! I hear a paper mache project in my near future! (perhaps paper hearts!) 🙂


    1. You’ve told me how you love to have everything tidy, me too. It’s so much fun putting it all up but then to put away…yikes! You’re such a creative crafter, I can’t wait to see your hearts! You are the Da Vinci of papier-mâché ;D


Talk nerdy to me………..
