Folding Flurry

May 17th, 2015 at 05:56 pm

I feel like I'm swamped--so much to do, but much of it is self-created work as I'm trying for more and more FB sales, so I'm finding, taking photos, listing, replying to inquiries, and packing things up. While the first round of this was mostly kid's stuff, this time lots of it is my clothes. I'm rarely a planner when it comes to clothes and when I find a style I like, I tend to stick with it. The last few years I've worn a lot of cardigans with camisoles to teach. So I've probably bought too many. Axe probably, I have too many.

Inspired by some of the Marie Kondo ideas, I went on a folding spree last night, fished five rarely worn tanks and camis out of the beautifully folded drawer--and was able to consolidate two heaping drawers of stuff into one gorgeous drawer of origami camis. I feel a little crazy just typing that. I washed them and took photos, listed, and have sold three of the five. Out also is going a rocking David Bowie tee, another cardigan, and a peach top that is more tent than top. All sold awaiting pick-up.

I Kondo-ed DD's horrible top and pants drawers this afternoon, switching their order, and I'm over-the- moon excited by how wonderful it is. And also very tired. I'm listing some of her outgrowns tonight.

In between this odd flurry of wackiness, I bought plants, spread mulch and compost, planted another crop of lettuce, tomatoes, and filled six planters.

Although I feel like going to bed at 8, I need to finish laundry and grade tomorrow's homework responses. And pull together a quick PowerPoint for our discussion. Hopefully I can stop folding for long enough to do that.

    You worked hard this weekend! I hope you get your PowerPoint done quickly and can get to bed at a decent hour for some well deserved rest.

    Oh, I got a pang when you mentioned your David Bowie T ...

    Love me my rock T-shirts ... and two weeks ago I actually went to class wearing my Erasure T and combat boots, hair nicely dyed black and all piercings filled. And black eye-liner. My younger daughter said, "You look nice, Mom. You look punk."

    It was hard to give up the Bowie tee, but I have so many clothes....

    Just teasing! Smile In all serious though a friend and my daughter did a David Bowie gender-bender photo shoot inspired by DB. Very radical, and yet so so fun!

  5. My English Castle Says:

    The woman who bought the Bowie tee is SO excited. It actually came from the Bowie exhibit in Chicago last winter.

    Brilliant! So glad that it going somewhere to be appreciated in all its glory. Smile

    I don't think many of my clothes would be lapped up second hand ... I did list the coat that I was given by my first room rental landlord (the one with the two dogs I walked all the time.) No bites yet.

    A fair number of mine are going right to the charity shop.
