Lots and lots of stuff

This past week or so I have gotten in the cleaning mode. When I get there, I have to go with it cuz who knows how long it will stay ya know?? I had way too much stuff in closets and in our attic that I knew I had to get rid of. Now I am not a hoarder or anything, but I just have alot stuff from the kids and of course the very important things that I may need someday!! Any of you have that kind of stuff?? I hated to throw stuff away so I decided to donate and help save the environment. I had the trunk packed full and the back seat too and off I went to the donation place. It actually feels good to see improvement in the attic and seeing how clean it is getting.
When I was cleaning I found this picture frame. Uncle Ed gave it to Jazzi last Christmas. It was very special last year but it is even more special now. She sure loved her Uncle Ed and they were great partners!! 
One more round of cleaning and another car load and I will be done. Now I have to make sure to buy only what I need!! yah right!! lol I have so much craft stuff that my husband tells people that when Michael's runs out that they call me Ha! Its not really that bad but that's his story!!


  1. Our mom says that same cleaning mode fire needs to be lit underneath her butt! Love the frame and the picture of Jazzi and Uncle Ed!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  3. Mum says she has your problem too. Easy to buy - but very hard to part with. You should see the office - a real dumping ground. The wardrobes desperately need a sort through - but mum keeps putting other things first.

    We both think you were very strong with parting with perfectly good stuff ;-)

  4. we too need to get Mom into that mode.....we hae too much stuff we just don't use.

  5. We've been doing a bit of the same...but it is so hot that Mom will not go in the attic yet. She jokingly says she could decorate a second house with all the stuff up there.
    Have a Super Saturday!

  6. I started with my closet a couple of months ago, but have fizzled out on my office...sigh

  7. I am heading over to my Mom's today to help her start her "fall" cleaning too :) Maybe the crafting bug will bite you next :)

  8. There is something so cathartic about cleaning out things. I always feel lighter when I take things out of the house.

  9. Mom should get in the cleaning mode BUTT.......

    That is a beautiful frame and picture and one that will always be cherished.

  10. Mom says it makes her feel good to clean out stuffs. Me and Stanley like it cuz then there's room for more doggie toys.

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  11. We know all about crafters...and the stuff they have. It's great when you have a major clean out. But as most stuff was in cupboards, you can't see all your hard work. SHE feels like SHE should leave the cupboard doors open.

    That's a lovely frame and picture of Uncle Ed. We always enjoyed Jazzi's posts about their shenanigans.

  12. Mom is getting that urge to do some cleaning too. Must be the need to make things seem fresh again

  13. Oh, when our Fridge died, Ma went CRAZY cleanin'!!! OMD, I didn't thinks it was ever gonna stop!! I just hid and waited for it to did. BOL
    Ma has the same pile of donations sitting in the living room!!! We have trucks that come by twice a month to pick up donations, butts she keeps forgettin' to put them out!!! Anyhu, that looks like a good haul!
    That pic is FABulous ~ what a wonderful find, and amazin' memory.

  14. Feel free to come by here when you are done!! Isn't it a great feeling when you get things cleaned out!

  15. You mean you don't own Michael's yet?

  16. Ms. asked me to ask you if you are for hire?
    MOL MOL MOL Good job.
    We had tacos Friday night so I have lots of photos for Jazzi's Taco day
    Hugs madi your bfff

  17. Oh Lordy, my mom gets in that cleaning mode too, and it's a wonder I have not been tossed into the give away container myself she gets on such a roll!!! Thank heavens taco day is close -- I don't think I can wait much longer!!!!!

  18. Ha - we think your husband is pretty funny! I bet Uncle Ed is grateful for that picture, too.
