Christmas Clutter Countdown Week 13 & Gift Bag Tutorial
CHRISTMAS WEEK 13
I printed the invitations and address labels for our annual ladies ornament exchange. Then it was quick and easy to fold the invitations, tape them closed, stick on address labels, return address labels and postage stamps. They all went in the mail this weekend.
I'm also coordinating a small play for the pre-school children at our church to do during our church's annual Christmas program. I gathered the materials I needed this week and made calls to parents in preparation for this fun event.
With Thanksgiving coming up in less than two weeks, Robbie and I decided which delicacies we would be taking to my parent's home for Thanksgiving Day as well as what we would be making for our church's Thanksgiving Feast on the Sunday before Thanksgiving. During my weekly grocery run, I picked up everything we would need (except for a few fresh items we'll get next week).
DECLUTTERING WEEK 13
This week's focus was the master bedroom. I had picked up a new corner shelf for our bedroom several weeks ago and finally took time this week to bring it in from the garage and set it up behind the little green couch. Robbie helped me hang a few items on the wall that I had stored behind the green couch waiting to get all the furniture in place. I deep cleaned the room, dusting everything and even sorting through the pile of books by my bed. Well . . . I guess I should say sorting through the FOUR piles of books by my bed, getting them organized a little better and reminding myself what I have waiting to be read.
