So, here's what I'm up to this week:
No painting this time. Boo Hoo. I would love to do a home decorating project again, but I have to be good this time and choose a "I'm not going to spend money this time" project.
But! I am thrilled about what I will be working on because each are for great causes and make my heart happy.
I have two goals to get done this week:
1. I'm getting ready for a VERY SPECIAL yard sale. Actually, my kids are doing it, I'm just helping. You may have read about this on other blogs:
Remember when my girls did their "Playdate with a Purpose" for Kids Lake and raised money for bowls and spoons for Haitian orphans? Well, this month Kids Lake is asking kids to join in with Feed the Forgotten. My girls decided to take part in our neighborhood's community yard sale on Saturday, June 27, and donate all they earn to "Feed the Forgotten."
They asked friends to join in, so now three or four families are helping out and we plan to sell baked goods and Kool Aid at the yard sale. So that means, Mom better go through all of this:
I keep walking through our laundry room thinking, "Man I need to do something about that pile" but other things seem to take priority. So within one week I will:
- decide what in the pile should be returned to its rightful owner and what can be sold at the yard sale
- Help the girls bake cookies and make signs for our yard sale
And then there is Goal #2 (I guess I'm ambitious)
Our church does some awesome things in India. On July 1st they are having a "Friends of India" dinner and auction. I promised one of my nursing covers for the auction, but the problem is the nursing cover is still just fabric I washed, dried, and never touched. : )
So within one week, one of those two fabrics will be a nursing cover for the auction. Which one is your favorite?
Mr. Linky isn't working for me right now, so if you'll just leave me a comment, I'll add your name and a link to your blog. Thanks!
