I seriously spent the entire day yesterday cleaning out the closet, going through the toy chest, and cleaning up the Bratz and Barbie area (I should have taken a before picture of that, too). While cleaning, I found Taylor’s Pez collection – this was some sort of tradition we got started eons ago. I forgot how many she had – In fact, this year I got her a complete Hello Kitty set. Maybe that was a mistake, we’re probably making her into some weird collector who will have a room full of Pez heads when she is older.
But now onto the cleaning. This is the closet now that it’s been organized and straightened up. You can now walk through it and I can get to my wrapping paper and gift bags! I didn’t have the heart to get rid of some of her older Barbie items, so I kept them – and pushed them wayyyyy in the back. Everything else has been put back onto shelves. I’m sure that she’ll go through the closet tonight and discover all the toys that had been buried in that pile you saw yesterday. I now have a small mound of toys to donate and hope to take off to Goodwill this afternoon. Thanks to everyone for their words of encouragement in getting this cleaning project done – I really needed it!
After I was finished up, I went back to Fabric.com to see if my fabrics were available – and they were! So I went ahead and picked up 3 different stretch laces, 2 yards of stretch velvet burnout (I’ll probably be sorry I didn’t order more), and several yards of some sushi fabric. And now, back to my regularly scheduled sewing.
