let the de-stashing begin...

de-stashing

I feel like I should start by saying, "Thank You!"

You see, I have an office/workspace that is full. Very full. I have the tendency to collect things, and think that I will always find a use for things. The truth is, you can only use so much, and a time comes when you just need to part with some of the extra that has accumulated. But it's not easy.

When I realized that others might enjoy some of these extras, it became an inspiration to go through my stash. Now, believe me, I have a loooong way to go. But things have been started, and will continue. Yay!

So, this week, you can enter to win a small bundle of supplies, extra prints, and perhaps some surprises. I'm keeping the packets small so that postage isn't too high, and so that no one is overwhelmed with little items. These are a grab bag, after all, so you never know what fun may come your way.

Each giveaway will last one day. The winner will be chosen with the random number generator, and you can only win one prize this week.

Ready? Enter the first de-stash giveaway with your name and what your favorite supply is. Go!

(There's still a little more time on the print giveaway from yesterday...see below. I'll choose a winner tonight!)

  4. too hard to choose just one supply that i'm obsessed with, it's a tie between fabric, embroidery floss and buttons (okay, I guess if I had to choose it would be in that order, hehe)

  7. My favorite supply is thread, I think. It's useful to have in many shades, but so pretty all lined up together. And it doesn't take up much room, either!

  11. I absolutely love, love, love MOO brand erasers. They work really well with graphite for sketches and drawings, and are the best I have found in carving homemade rubber stamps :)

  19. Oops!

    Buttons and Ribbons. I rarely need the buttons but I lvoe having them. Reminds me of sorting through my moms as a kid.

    ReplyDelete
  20. currently, it's felt. No, make that buttons. Maybe it's threads and yarns for my myriad embroidery projects I have planned and not yet stitched... my, this question is hard!

  24. I'm obsessed with felt and cross stitching. I started making felt pieces based on stories for my kids. They enjoy story time more because each of them gets a chance to put something on the felt board. :)

  39. I go through phases. About a year ago I couldn’t stop buying red heart yarn then it was floral patterned fabric but my favorite is thrift store craft supplies. You never know what you are going to find and what magic you are going to be able to create with it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I have been bitten by the yarn bug and I am afraid there may be no turning back. Quilts and clothes have been put on hold, goccos and fabric have taken a back seat, waiting to see if I can shake the illness. Maybe when I finish this shawl I will be able to think about something else....

    :)

  48. I've just started to build up an embroidery floss stash. I never used to do many cross-stitch without it being a sampler that comes with everything. But, lately I've been itching to do all sorts of patterns from books and such. Also, I wanted to start trying embroidery soon, so I need thread for that as well.

    ReplyDelete

  57. Wow- I've been trying to think of my ONE supply that I'm obsessed with, it's a tie between fabric, yarn, ribbons and buttons (okay, I guess if I had to choose it would be in that order? Although, I've been picking out books on felting, so I suppose once I give that a go, felt will be next-
