Cleaning & Purging - CONTEST NOW CLOSED!

*****Contest is now Closed. Winner to be announced shortly.*****

Ok, that doesn't sound so appetizing but boy is it liberating! My local scrapbook store (the only one still left in a 30 mile radius) is getting ready for their annual yard sale and I figured this was a good time to get rid of all those old supplies I've been hoarding. I wouldn't have thought my little scrap closet would hold so much, but I've been surprised, let me tell you!

So in celebration of getting rid of all this stuff, I thought I'd do a little giveaway. I'm taking a cue from my friend & fellow Kelly/i, Kelli Crowe, and doing a TOSGA (Thursday Old Stuff Give-Away) but on a Friday! I can't promise you what will be in it, but I can promise you I'll fill up a Flat Rate box with all the goodies I can shove in there. Some may be newer than others but it'll all be good!

So I'll give you to say Sunday Night at 11:59 EDT to leave me a little comment to be entered to win. I'll draw the winner Monday morning and your package will be on it's way!

Happy Friday!

xoxo,
k.

This is too cool of an idea! Maybe it could start a chain reaction. If I win, I will load up a flat rate and do this for one of my readers. You know the rule, "bring something in and move something out".

Becca said...

So fun! Count me in please!

Cindi said...

Love getting things in the mail. Fun.

Stefanie said...

You have to be in it to win it.
Thanks for the chance.

Annabelle said...

I had just promised my husband that I would not SPEND on anymore scrap wonders (until my current picture to stash ratio gets a little smaller) - so this giveaway solves my problem. :)

Becca said...

One person's trash is another person's treasure! I'd love to win. Thanks for the chance! :)

marla said...

What a great idea. It always feels good to purge and of course it is always fun to receive scrapping goodies in the mail. Thanks for a chance.

Stephanie said...

Oh my goodness, I'd love to win!

Christy said...

Sounds like fun!

Addie said...

How nice of you!

Nicole said...

How much fun is that. I always find a reason to get rid of some stuff so I don't feel as quilty when I am constantly adding more stuff into my stash. lol.
I want to tell you I LOVE your blog and all of your work. I have been doing the monthly basic grey layouts as well.
Thank you for such great inspiration all the time.
I miss scrapbooking. I haven't gotten to do anything in about 2 weeks. I am getting married in 2 1/2 weeks and there is so much to be done I don't even have a chance to sit down at my desk. I can't wait until I do though.
Have a great day.

Hi Kelly. I just started my 10 year old niece how to scrapbook an she would be so excited to receive a goodie box. My friends (8 of us) recently started this and it's been fun. Someone's old stuff is someone's new layout.

I need to do this, but I don't know if anyone actually reads my blog. Probably need to find a nice charity that uses scrap supplies...

Count me in for your purged stash giveaway!

Summer, Andy and Audrey said...

Why am I entering this giveaway when I just gave a bunch of my stuff away AND I'm moving???? Because one scrapper's trash is another scrapper's gorgeous layout?

A surprise box! I love it! Thanks for the giveaway.

Pegg S said...

That reminds me I have some spring cleaning of my own to do!!

Debby L. said...

A group of friends that I scrap with contributes our no long wanted items to a basket. We can take anything we want from the basket, and after a while, if no one wants the basket item, we'll donate them to our local Boys & Girls Club. Nothing goes to waste!

Susan said...

Good Luck with the sale Kelly. I love going to the "scrap" sales. I am more than happy to buy what others consider not worth keeping. LOL.

Nice of you to do a RAK.

This is a wonderful idea I live in Australia hope that is not too far and what you call old I will be over the moon with as all the wonderful supplies on see on you blog are gone so quick in our stores and then we have to wait months for another shipment to come into the shops. I will love anything you have as I we are on a very tight budget and I am working with what I have got at the moment. your your blog and thanks for the great ideas.

Loriann said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win. This is a great idea for Spring Cleaning. All the scrappy stores in my area are closing too, so sad. If you ask my hubby, he would say I single handedly tried to support the scrappy stores cause during their economic demise.
