Toot Your Horn Tuesday - Staging a house

Welcome to Toot Your Horn Tuesday. Because we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!!

As we prepare to put our house on the market, my family has been working non-stop on house projects. We finished our bathroom project over the weekend! New toilet, vanity, flooring, paint! What a job! Yesterday, a crew came and installed new carpet in the family room. (Now I have to figure out how to keep it clean)
Also yesterday, we had a yard waste container delivered so that we could get our yard cleaned up. The nor'easter that hit our area, really did a number on our heavily treed lot. So, after 3 hours of hauling branches and raking leaves,
It Is Done!

Needless to say, my 40 year old body is now paying the price. My hands are blistered and my back aches. But it's a satisfying feeling!

I've been checking out all the crafts that many of you have posted on recent Toot Your Horn Tuesdays. Quite awesome! Your creativeness blows me away. I'm even thinking of trying a craft myself. I'll let you know when I find the time!

Ok, your turn....

Last year we also put our house on the market...it is so much hard work! It is also rewarding when it is all finished and all the projects are done! Good Luck!
Thank you again for hosting a fun party! It is only my second week to participate and I am having lots of fun! So many great ideas!
