First Job & Scrapbook Garage Sale


This past weekend I went to visit Ashley (ds) at her new job. This is her first real job. I warned her that I could see a "First Job" page in sight. She pleaded with me not to bring my camera, but I just snapped a few quick pics. Check her out...
Ashley's friend John started working at KFC about a week before her. I was lucky to go on a night when they were both working. Don't they look like they are having fun!


My Mother-in-law came over on Saturday and helped me with my sewing machine. I was threading the needle totally wrong! I think I may have it down now. Hope to use it on a scrapbook page soon. I haven't had a lot of time to scrapbook lately, but this past weekend I participated in a Scrapbook Garage Sale at the Scrapbook Emporium. I priced my stuff and dropped it off on Friday evening. A few ladies that were shopping said they couldn't make it on Saturday and wanted to look through my stuff then. Of course I let them. I made $60 just Friday night before the sale started! The store charges $5 and they will sell your items for you. That way I didn't have to sit at the sale with my stuff. They changed the rules, it use to be that you got half cash and half store credit for your garage sale items. Now it is all store credit. I ended up with $145 store credit on top of my $60 cash from Friday. I am happy, but would have preferred 1/2 cash. I cleared out a lot of stuff anyway, which was the ultimate goal.

Congrats to you dd on her 1st real job. This is a big step and you should do a page or several on it.
It sounds like you had a lot of stuff to sell. Good for you! I would've preferred 1/2 cash also.

I still have to look at how to put my spool and bobbin into my machine! If I don't look I know I'll do it backwards! Stitching on layouts is one of my favorite things!
