Monday, July 5

I always forget before and after pictures...

Wow! What a busy/productive day! I have been cleaning, throwing out and recycling things all day. Serious - ALL DAY. Insane. But of course, I forgot to take before and after pictures... oops. I will take after pictures tomorrow and you can just imagine how horrible it was before {it was bad}.

I also found a Brownie camera the other day at an antique show {I should have bought the table cloth I loved... shoot.} But I was playing with it a little today. I'll need to find film somewhere. Maybe online...

But other than my cleaning {and a little playing}, I made apple cider popsicles - so easy and fun. 
I want to make some with fruit in them!

I had one tonight. They were so yummy!

I had some bagel pizzas for dinner with my mom and we watched Leap Year which was really cute. And while the pizzas were cooking, I played with some other long exposure pictures:

I think I like this one the best of the ones I took.

Long exposure pictures are lots of fun especially when you have some fun colored or bright lights around. Here's one my friend Sunny took of us a couple of years ago when we were at Waterfire in Providence:

Lots of fun.

While I was cleaning, I found a TON of film I never scanned from Europe in *high school*. Oh my. I will do that... sometime...

I have so many things I want/need to do this summer and I feel like I want to do them all at once. I feel like it was really productive today, but I still feel like there is SO much I want to do! Whew.

I'm going to work on some more headbands and then going to sleep a little early -- tomorrow morning I'm going with mom to clean out my Grandma's spare room - stock full of fabric, quilts and who knows what else!! I'm excited to see what I come out with!

Photos to come from that and headbands tomorrow as well as some "after" pictures from my clean sweep. I'm happy with what I've gotten done. 

We took 5 garbage bags of clothes to the drop box today and probably about 5 bags of recycling and garbage. THEN a few laundry baskets full of things for the yard sale! And I think I *still* have things to clean out -- I haven't cleaned out my room since we moved here and it's been... 7 years?

So tomorrow's post(s) will have:

- cleaned closets

- scavenged fabrics {and other finds} from my Grandma's stash

- new headbands

- some new inspiration {since it's been a while}

Hope your Monday was as productive as mine!
{or lazy and wonderful! It's summer!}
