There’s no telling what you’ll find. I am on a mission. I have a bedroom that right now is housing all the things we have been keeping in there over the years for lack of a better place to store them. But now the room has a new purpose in life – a home gym. Nothing fancy, it’s a small room. But I have a workout bike and we’re being gifted with an elliptical, so I’m sorting through and selling, donating or finding a new home for about 95% of the things in the room.
The big bug-a-boo in the room is the closet. It’s a fairly large walk-in closet and it’s packed with old family photos, games, previous hobbies and unfinished projects. One of the projects I came across is a scrapbooking venture that my daughter Cara and I started when she was about 11 or 12. We had seen cute (and not so cute) scrapbook pages being sold on ebay for ridiculous prices. So we began making 2 page spreads to sell. Well, that little side business didn’t really take off, but we did learn to make the cutest little “tear bears”.
