Unpacking, But Where?

I finished up the violet candle mat last night so all it needs is a light steam pressing, some de-linting with a lint roller and it's ready to mail out to its' new owner.

I have enough purple dyed wool to make one more candle mat, so if anyone is interested in buying one, please let me know. It measures about 10 1/2" across and I sell these for $50 including shipping costs.

Rachel is home!!
****THERE USED TO BE A PICTURE HERE BUT I'M BEING DAUGHTER-CENSORED!*****
She was able to tightly cram the rest of her things into her car and got home around 6pm.
Thankfully, I thought to buy her some of those as-seen-on-tv storage bags that flatten things like pancakes after a vacuum sucks all the air out. Unfortunately, I bought a cheaper and probably thinner plastic CVS brand instead of the more expensive real ones so one acquired a puncture right away. I don't know if the more expensive advertised ones would hold up better, but they are so nice to have that I think for her next semester move, I'll spend the extra $ to get the real ones instead of generic ones.

I didn't expect her to have so much stuff and there's really no more space to put her things on the sunporch without some major moving/shifting of things already in there. So ... everything is on the living room floor for now. I guess she and I will work on that today.
It's rainy and dreary outside anyway, so a little inside cleaning certainly will be easier because of that!
Happy day everyone!

The candle mat is just beautiful! I'm sure your client will love it!

I bought the "original" Space Bags a while back but they weren't very good. The zip lock on one broke the first time we used it and another one split on a seam. No...I didn't have them jammed too full...LOL I don't think I'd buy them again.

Oh no we want a picture! Have fun unpacking and finding places for all the stuff! I used to be so OCD about it I couldn't go to sleep the first night until it was all done!

Hugs, Lisa

Uhhhh, yeah. How'd I know you'd make a smart remark?

Oh Rachel, let's start an online mother/daughter blogging battle, shall we? I'm teasing, of course. I respect your wishes and I've learned my lesson. You are very right and you've every right to make that request. I promise to not post pictures of you, or anyone, for that matter, without getting permission first. Love you dollface, (aka, Precious Daughter)
