Today was a great success with the garage sale. We opened up the garage and started dragging things out on to the driveway and people started coming on in. It was funny because my DH thought that I wouldn’t sell many of my prim decorations that I had out there, but I guess today’s money just kinda proved him wrong (lol). I sold quite a bit of prim goodies and was thrilled with the results. We sold a pack n play, highchair, baby swing and a few other larger baby/toddler items. I was just kinda shocked that I didn’t sell many baby clothes. I have 3 tables full of baby clothes and they are actually real nice, stain free, barely worn and well it is all still sitting there. So, I am hoping to sell more tomorrow. Whatever doesn’t sell goes to the thrift store down the street so we will see. After being open from 8am-2pm we made approx. $219.00 which isn’t too bad for a days work. I am pleased with that, but hoping for more to be sold tomorrow. My Mom told me after I posted my most recent make-over that it didn’t look like I had stained it. Well, you know what!?! She was right. I totally forgot to stain it so after staining it with the Dark Walnut Stain…… I am re-posting it for you all to see. I still of course need to hang it and decorate it, but I will post pics on that soon. Here it is stained!
I also wanted to let you know that I made my font a bit larger. I received a comment from Leslie stating that she uses FoxFire and that my font was real small so here is to hoping that it is a bit larger and easier on the eyes. Hopefully you all don’t have to squint in order to see my blog now. I am definitely into making you all happy so if there is ever anything I need to change on my end then be sure to just leave a comment and let me know. Oh – We once again started potty training and Day1 went well. We had 2 accidents and I personally didn’t think that was too bad. It is definitely a hassle setting an alarm for every 20 minutes and taking him to the potty, but it has to be done and we just need to stick with it. So, wish us luck as we continue to tackle Day 2 tomorrow. Here is my little man enjoying some juice while we “try” to get him to go potty. Gotta love that sweet smile.
Well, I have another busy day tomorrow so I better turn in for tonight. Hope you all have a great day tomorrow. It is suppose to be pretty hot here tomorrow so let’s hope we are able to stay somewhat cool and still make some money. BIG MONEY, BIG MONEY!! (lol).
Until Next Time…….. Lisa
