Get R Done

Please check out ExpresslyCorgi for her weekly Get R Done Blog. Check out what she got done and visit what others "Got Done' this week.

Okay, my dirty 26 year old carpet - another Get R Done project - but we are at the point of needing a new carpet . . . no my carpet isn't orange it's beige - but my camera makes it look that way. The point here is that it is empty of stuff (lol).



I started to gathering things to make baskets for the PTA at my grandson's school to be bid on for the silent auction. I asked for parent help and then I ran all over town asking for donations. 3:13 Hair Salon and Boutique gave me 3 $50 gift certificates! Curves gave me one for $138!



Okay rounded up my daughter and my friend Lynne after the book fair and we made 5 baskets.
My house looked like a blur with 150 books and all the basket items and wrapping paper - but we had so much fun.




Here is the final project -



Took them into school this week and they said Mrs. Boney's 3rd grade class rocks - okay I do get a little competitive at times . . . but I love doing it.




So that project is done and the bidding is this Saturday. I may bid on one or two of my own baskets.
Love,
Chatty

great project and great job. Nice looking baskets. Hope you make a lot of money on them.
So glad I finally got my old carpet out, it feels wonderful, no more sneezing and Hubby being stopped up. And the dust oh my, how great to only have to dust 1 time a week instead of 2 times a day...

What a great job! You made me laugh with the picture of the carpeting - I thought it was going to be a carpet replacement posting for your project!!! What a hoot! The gift baskets are so cute!!! Thanks for joining GET R DONE FRIDAY!

Thanks we really had fun doing them.
And it should have been about carpet replacement, but that's a whole other story!
