Mail and Cleaning Surprises

I am sure you are wondering what mail and cleaning have in common. They both have to do with my forgetful mind.

When my husband told me I had a package from The Quilt Bear, my first thought was, “I don’t remember ordering thread.” That’s because I hadn’t ordered thread. I participated in their 12 Days of Christmas special and ordered the 25 pack of fat quarters.

And came across these credit card holders:

In fact I had forgotten about some of these postcards. 

I teach and both are class projects from a couple of years ago and they were not in my class bins or tote.I can’t tell you how many times I have looked for these and couldn’t find them. 

I have a habit of filing pattern sheets, projects etc. in plastic sleeves. I know I checked those multiple times as well. Where I didn’t look was in a small stack of deep file folders. Sigh. So much for organization. They are now in plastic sleeves in my “craft” section. They will be easier to find the next time I go looking.

So what surprises await you?
