Deep cleaning always uncovers fun things, memories from the past you had forgotten about because they had been buried under 10 tons of other crap.

Now that book #2 is out of our hands, we actually have had time to tackle some long overdue projects around the house. Like cleaning out “The Garage” (aka the upstairs closet that is pretty much our main junk-storage area).

It wasn’t pretty, believe me.

But we finally got around to it. Despite the hard work and the fact that you always make a bigger mess than you started with, it feels so good to purge all that useless stuff.

In the process, I stumbled across some vintage Lindsay Designs products. Lindsay Designs being the name of my college-era business that eventually morphed into Pattern & Paw (which, coincidentally, we’re shutting down this week. If you have pets that wear collars take advantage of our final sale!) But back when it was Lindsay Designs I made much more than pet collars, including ribbon belts, purses, and wallets.

Turns out people aren’t willing to spend all that much money on a handmade wallet, and as cute as they are they were just too labor intensive to be worthwhile. These 5 wallets are all I have left, and I just couldn’t bare to send them off to Goodwill with the rest of our junk. And unless you’re swimming in cash, having 5 wallets seemed pretty unnecessary.

I thought, why not change things up a bit and do a just-for-fun giveaway. I’m sure some of you would enjoy these!

They are the perfect size to hold bills or a checkbook, and have a few nifty pockets for cards and even an elastic loop for a pen. They’re fancy like that. I have 5 wallets, each a different design. I’m totally wishing I had more of that ice cream fabric right now. Too darn cute.

*****GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED*****

Because this is so much more fun than Goodwill.

Kayle (The Cooking Actress)—I need a new wallet! :)
