I did make some purchases as gifts for my friends and family. Of course, a few for me as well! So, here is the status on the purge of 600 items!
Today, I gave away this styrofoam box. A very reliable freecycler named Richard is now the proud owner of this box. It was originally used to ship something here (I have no memory of what!) and we saved it thinking we might have a use for it. NOT. So, it is now gone.
I have also given Beverly my Tree. I created this tree from Matte board. It was used in a writing project in the beginning of the school year. The white squares are velcro where I attached Leaves with the students' names on them. The writing assignment was entitled "I'm turning over a new leaf" and focused on what changes they were going to make in the new school year.
Today, I sold a book on half.com: Photo courtesy of amazon.com!
Total given away: 419
Total received: 46
total remaining: 227

These embroidered floral pieces were found in a thrift store. They were incomplete pillowcases and table runners. I loved the work, but did not want to finish them for their original purpose. Since I wanted to bring a gift to my aunt and uncle, here is a set of nifty placemats!
This purse was created from a small piece of upholstery fabric and some scraps left over from another project. It has a piece of metal carpenters tape in the top to help keep the top closed. The strap I created by twisting together pieces of DMC Floss (of which I have tons!) to create the twisted cord.
So these 17 items will be leaving the house.
