hey guys.. here we are in November.. as the year winds down I have been obsessed with winter cleaning.. I have taken it upon myself to wash the walls.. my mother's friend had this brilliant idea to use a Swiffer to wash the walls and I am loving it.. every weekend I pick a room and Swiffer away.. and when I see those little smudging toddler finger prints vanish it fills me with joy.. 

This is something I do all year around but with holiday shopping around the corner I have been doing it more often.. going through the house and finding things we have no need for and selling them on ebay. Also gives me great joy.. 

We have a little getaway planned around Christmas time.. and an even more exciting trip is being planned for spring break.. yay! 


Speaking of jobs.. I am venturing into family portraits.. I had my first shoot yesterday, it is a change working with people after years of taking photographs of inanimate objects.. but I am looking forward to trying out new things.

I love the idea of selling on eBay !! We have so many things that I'd love to get rid of and might have to think about selling on that site. Have fun on your trips :) Happy Monday !

Wash the walls- I should probably do that too!! I love selling things on ebay - it's such a great way to get a little extra money and declutter! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

So cool how you're expanding your business:) And I used to sell on Ebay years ago but have gotten lazy. Should really get back into that!

Good luck! I just did a massive clean out and basically just gave away a lot of my old things, makes you feel great afterwards!

I have spot cleaned our walls, but I've never washed them. I love the idea of using a swiffer, which I have at home already! I am going to try this!

That's such a good idea to use your Swiffer to clean your walls. I use mine to clean the outside of the windows that I can't reach by hand.

I had to look up what a swimmer is :-) quite fancy one actually. Good luck with your new portrait photography! x

Marieken Hoefnagel said...

I think using a swiffer makes cleaning more fun, but it will never be my hobby :-)
I am curious to see some of your portraits, I think photographing people is the hardest thing.

karen said...

good luck with your portrait adventure, I'm sure you will do splendidly!

Marie said...

That is so fantastic. I know doing family portraits is harder, I'm sure you will be amazing at it.

Stefanie said...

Break a leg with this new endeavor! Do you wash your walls with a wet Swiffer then?

Anvilcloud said...

Enjoy your new gig. I am not good enough or bold enough to do that. Nor do I have space and equipment enough.

Laura Mitbrodt said...

I should swiffer my walls, do you use wet or dry

wet :)

Kim said...

Aha I never wash my walls. Maybe once I move into a real house (currently, I'm in an apartment) then I will start swiffering them! You must feel so refreshed and clean!!
