Hello Stampers! Another busy day today! How many of you still clean your kids rooms? I have to admit that once a year I "deep clean" my kids rooms with them. Today we did Amie's room. She is 12. She is also a pack rat who hates to throw ANYTHING away! It took us about 5 hours to clean her room! We moved furniture around, cleaned off shelves, cleaned out baskets, and cleaned out the toy box. She has decided this year that she is too old for some of her toys too, so she got rid of three trash bags full of stuff! She has this horrible problem too though that she keeps things because she feels sorry for them, or she is afraid that she will miss them too much when they are gone. Here's a good example, we were going through some books on her shelves and we came to a set and she said "I guess you can get rid of those, I don't ever read them. In fact I never even liked them." So I dared to ask her why she had kept them this long and she replied, "Because I felt sorry for them for not wanting to be kept, so I kept them!" LOL!
Here is the card that I made today after all of our cleaning! Isn't he so cute!!! I had seen this owl made as a bag topper, but I wanted to turn him into a card instead! I love him!!! I think the preschool kids will love him too! Here's the recipe:
