a giveaway....


The little has a break all week so we've been hanging out at home. We finally have a break in the rain and today I have all the windows open to air the place out. I am feeling the call of spring and feel inspired to paint and plant things in the yard.

One thing I am REALLY determined to do this spring is do an EXTREME purge on my studio. Some of the stuff will be donated, some will be sold and some will be given away on my blog. THIS IS ONE of those times...

I have a bag full of random bits that I will send off to one lucky commenter here. I will draw a name next Friday the 27th to win. This bag is chock full of papers (vintage and new) including wallpaper, books pages, scrapbook papers, decorative papers and MORE, like doo dads, award ribbons, beads, buttons, trims, ribbon, collage images and so much more I cannot even name it. This is a wonderful collection of things sure to jump start your creativity. Please leave a comment and make sure I can contact you should you be the winner.
BTW, I will cover postage within the continental US. If you are Int'l. I will cover the first $5 in postage but the rest is up to you so be willing to cover that if you want to enter. Good luck!

In other news, I am contemplating hosting a "Blog Garage Sale" and thought it might be a fun group event. We could pick a date to post items for sale and promote it in the community. I would make a list of all those participating. If you are interested, please mention it in your comment and I will keep a list. I am thinking in a month or so, after I get back from ArtFest..???

  30. Nothing like Spring...helps us sort, organize & share~ These papers look SWEET! LOVE paper....
    I don't have papers to give a way...I have BUTTONS! They seem to follow me home and have taken up far too many shelves in the studio...
    I think I will be sharing bags of buttons!
    Wishing you the best!

  40. Hi Heather,
    I was just dropping by to say "Hi" 'cause I'm in need of a "nip/tuck" at my little blog, and lo & behold, you are giving stuff away! I'd love a chance and I would be very interested in the yard sale idea. Please keep me informed about it. And I'll be talking to you soon about some "improvements" for my blog. Take care~

  41. What a neat idea. I have been cleaning also and it is a good feeling. I send some of my items to my great neice. Young children love artsy items and they really get put to use. The garage sale sounds interesting. Fill us in on the details and I will consider it.
