Ok, I am on my way. I worked really hard today going through clothes and stuff. So far I have 13 bags of clothing ready to donate. I haven't gotten to the garage tubs yet or any of the shoes.  If I have time I will go through the summer clothes of mine and get those ready too. I have some plastic bins ready to start loading with my craft stuff so it will be easy to carry out and relocate. I wish we had warmer temps so I could really do cleaning in the garage but it is exremely cold here right now. Now that I have started I'm ready to go through everything and get it done. Anyone wanting to help, please email and I will send you my address!

These little matchbox holders were inspired by the ones that Colleen of  http://onesmileliftsaspirit.blogspot.com/ made. They are holding a small pack of M&M's and are going in the mailboxes with the other candy. The second one has a shiny heart that is hard to photograph. That is washi tape along the bottom.  Be kind to one another.

  4. Love these matchbox holders Brenda! And good grief, you really are whizzing through a load of sorting out. I'd LOVE to come and spend time helping you out - there's just the small matter of being a few thousand miles apart :(

    Love and hugs

  5. So glad that you are busy organizing & cleaning. But don't overdo, and of course with the cold, you'll have to wait a bit. But good that you are in the mood for this kind of work! Loved both the holders...really loved the shiny heart & purple...quite eye catching. TFS & also for the lovely surprise that arrived today. How very kind you are to think of us. TFS & Hugs

  6. Great job on those little matchbook Valentine treat holders, Brenda! The kids will love them! And great job, too, continuing to do the purging and planning for the upcoming renovations! You know I would be there in a minute if I could be! But I'm definitely sending hugs (cuz I know some of it is HARD) and I'm cheering you on long-distance! Love and hugs, Darnell
