Garage Sale is Over and Life is getting back to Normal.

This is kind of what the sale looked like....but everything was marked a quarter. It felt so good getting all the stuff that we don't use or need out of storage. I took a load to Goodwill and a load to the Battered Women's Shelter and I am pleased to say my storage area is empty!

Here was the hot ticket item....3 ladies kept stealing it from each other at the sale.
It was comical to watch my husband referee. Okay, let's step back in time....
I created this for K & Company when I first got on the design team. It was before altered items were done much and I look at it and think how I would do it differently now. The papers and products are so rich and lovely. I think this was Elizabeth B. She designed a butterfly line for K & Company many moons ago. She may have done a vintage Christmas line but I can't remember. Isn't it fun to look at work you did along time ago?
This was before digital camera!!!!!

Oh, my goodness - what a garage sale! I've never held one and the sheer organization of it keeps me from it... Your "older" work is beautiful! I love the colors and the feel of it! :) Silke

Wow! Look at all that stuff!!! Congrats on getting rid of it! Love the shadow box. But, then what's not to love about your work????

I agree with Leah. It's all gorgeous. :) Congrats on cleaning out your storage! We did that this weekend. Goodwill is probably wondering if there's anything left in my house! It does feel good. :)

We should do a playdate with our two boys & a bin of Legos ;)

You must be so relieved that it's over, and that your storage area is clear!

I remember those K&Co papers. I used them to decorate the music binders for one of my little groups, several years ago

What a great sale! It feels so good to purge - doing that with my workroom at home. Before long, everything will be down here and out for sale.

WOWSERS!!! Now THAT'S a garage sale!!! Loved the hot item. Would've been a hot commodity here, too!
And LOVE your early work just as much! It is classic and timeless, my friend!
