Craft Room Cleanup Giveaway: Spring Supplies

At the end of October, my craft room looked like this...

A big, embarrassing hot mess, I know. Slowly I have been sorting through everything and purging old supplies that I no longer need. Here is what it looks like right now...


It's slowly getting better and I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I wish that I had made more progress over the last three months but things have been hectic with work, travel and the holidays. Also, to be honest I've been struggling a bit since I had my little incident before Christmas and find myself constantly tired. I'm hoping to figure out what is wrong and be back to my old self soon.

Anyway, as I have mentioned before my craft supply hoarding problem is your gain because as I sort through all of my supplies and figure out what I don't really need I am giving them away. Because it is snowing here and I am yearning for spring this particular giveaway box is loaded up with spring goodies. I've got lots of papers (over 100 sheets) for scrapbooking or card making as well as a bunch of embellishments like buttons, stickers, chipboard letters, etc. I have some items that are specifically spring related as well as some non themed items that fit with the colors of the rest of the box. Below is a sampling of some of what is included.

Craft Room Cleanup Giveaway: Travel Supplies

My craft room is still a big hot mess but I am slowly (very slowly!) making a little bit of progress on getting things in order. If I am really honest about things I have to admit that it doesn't look too much better than when I last showed pictures of my craft room.

One thing that I did manage to do during my holiday break was to organize the 12x12 scrapbook paper that I am planning on keeping into a paper rack. I got the rack for $50 from a woman at work who got it from a closing scrapbook store but ended up not using it herself. It is almost as tall as me and holds a ton of paper so I thought it was a great deal.   

Anyway, back to the purpose of this post, as I have mentioned before my hoarding problem is your gain because as I sort through all of my craft supplies and figure out what I don't really need I am giving them away.

This particular giveaway box is loaded up with travel goodies perfect for a vacation album or making Bon Voyage cards. I've got lots of papers (over 100 sheets) for scrapbooking or card making as well as a bunch of embellishments like ribbons, stickers, chipboard shapes, etc. I have some items that are specifically travel related as well as some non themed items that fit with the colors of the rest of the box. Below is a sampling of some of what is included.

All you have to do to enter is comment on this post telling me a favorite travel memory or someplace you would like to vacation.

Craft Room Cleanup Giveaway: Winter Holiday Supplies

This is what my hot mess of a craft room looked like a month ago.

Here's what it looks like now.

Yes, I know that I haven't made that much progress, but at least you can see some of the floor now! By posting these pictures I am hoping I can embarrass myself into getting things cleaned up faster. As I mentioned before my hoarding problem is your gain because as I sort out my craft supplies and figure out what I don't really need I am giving them away.

Since December is upon us I thought I would load this box up with Winter and Holiday inspired goodies. I've got lots of papers (over 100 sheets) for scrapbooking or card making in reds and greens for Christmas plus some snowy blues as well as a bunch of embellishments like ribbons, stickers, decorative tape, chipboard shapes, etc. I have some items that are specifically winter or holiday as well as some non themed items that have a similar winter tone. Below is a sampling of what is included.

All you have to do to enter is comment on this post telling me a favorite holiday memory or what you love about winter.

Craft Room Cleanup Giveaway: Fall Supplies

This is what my craft room looks like right now.

Yes, I am embarrassed. Yes, I know it's a hot mess. Yes, I am aware that there is a distinct possibility that house elves have moved into that warren of chaos without my knowledge. It's time for me to get my tush in gear.

I have some small pockets of organization in the room like my shutter organizer and my fabric storage but they are buried behind a wall of clutter right now. I need to clean up, purge and make this a useable work space again.

My hoardng problem is your gain because as I sort out my craft supplies and figure out what I don't really need I am going to give them away. My plan is to fill up USPS Priority Flat Rate boxes and host giveaways here on my blog with the first one happening today.

Since it is Autumn right now I thought I would load this first box up with Fall inspired goodies. I've got lots of papers (over 100 sheets) for scrapbooking or card making in earth tone and jewel tone hues as well as a bunch of embellishments like ribbons, stickers, decorative tape, chipboard shapes, etc. Most of the items are just autumnal by color palette but there are a few specific Thanksgiving and Halloween things thrown in for good measure. Below is a sampling of what is included.

All you have to do to enter is comment on this post telling me a favorite fall memory or what you love about fall.

You can submit additional entries with separate posts doing one of the following:
