First day of SPRING = Free Stuff!


****CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON. THANK YOU SO MUCH!*****
Can you hear me hollering wherever you are??! It's the first day of SPRING!!! Oh yes, it is! And because of that I am frantically spring cleaning (and spring planting with the boys :)) because I just don't function well with clutter. Let's not even mention I have the looming deadline of Taxes and an upcoming LSS yard sale next weekend. So much to do and it all starts with cleaning and purging! As much as I hate the actual process, I love the end result of organized space and I think you will, too!

****CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. WINNER TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON. THANK YOU SO MUCH!*****

In my efforts, I came across an extra collection pack of the new BasicGrey GREEN AT HEART (a perfect for spring collection!) that I am willing to share with one lucky reader! Just leave a comment here telling me what Spring has you doing (PG-rated please ;)) by Sunday night March 21 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time and you'll be entered to win!


Have a fantastic weekend, all!
xoxo,
k.

Love Spring! Starting to purge and getting new items for the patio to enjoy all summer!

Michelle said...

Oh I love that collection!! I started spring cleaning weeks ago, hoping to be ahead for once... just so when spring does hit, I can be outside. I love the sense of renew.. new buds and blooming flowers and trees! A new year and new adventures. I love being outside after being cooped up in the house after a long winter. I can't wait to plant flowers and such.. but we can't do that until after Mother's Day, as we can still get frost warnings and freezing nights.

kelly lautenbach said...

I'm getting my craft on! :) Quilting today! YAY!

"HAPPY SPRING"! Loving the fact that I can get out and work in my yard. Hear the birds chirp, see the leaves bud and smell the clean, crisp Springtime air! Isn't is Awesome!!!
LIFE IS GOOD! :)

Shannon Hager said...

Happy Spring! My husband just left for a 6 month deployment. So, the 4 kids and I will be doing spring cleaning ourselves. We will be tackling their closets and toy collections. I also hope to get some pages completed!

erin said...

well, yes, spring cleaning of course! each year though, we seem to hold onto more and more of what we're not using. so typically, in the past, it has just been to purge and reorganize our clothing closets. t his spring, we've done so with ALL closets, and we feel so much lighter!

Cindy said...

Spring has me out in the yard pulling weeds and readying everything to put in the vegetable garden very soon.

ArlaMo said...

Taking more photos!! Love the light of spring (we have dreary, foggy winters.)

piradee talvanna said...

i'm also trying to purge down to a reasonable size (although it's hard to say what reasonable - i guess when you start having to store your goodies in cardboard boxes, then there might be a bit too much). doing a little spring cleaning over here too.

thanks for a chance to get this collection, i haven't had a chance to get this yet and would love to work with these gorgeous papers and colors!

waldenbunch said...

Yard sale season! Tims to purge the kids clothes and figure out what we need and what we can't live without :)

It's been a longer than usual, crazy winter here in North Texas and we are all ready for it to end. Now I have a glimpse of how the northerners feel and why they anticipate spring so much! It's the first day of spring here and it is cold, rainy, with a possibility of snow. Crazy!

Today I plan to catch up on Project Life!


Suzanne, Fort Worth, TEXAS

Barb said...

Sooooo pretty! I love this line. :)
Spring has me running outside again. Yay! I love running, but spending the winter months on a treadmill is one of the suckiest parts of living where I live. I'm so happy to be back on the road again.

Lisa said...

Wow! I haven't seen that kit for sale here, but I love the colours!
Spring has us prepping the flower beds (I'm all excited my crocuses are blooming, and the tulips are starting to come up!), raking the yard, and decluttering on the inside of the house.

Yay! I love the spring. Spring took me to the nail shop to get a pedicure - Man I really needed one! Just wish the weather would cooperate - it's snowing here now - Ugh!!!

KittyMama said...

spring means we can wear shorts again and open our windows!! My favorite thing about spring is the gorgeous temperatures outside.

Sarah Mullanix said...

Yayyyyy, Spring finally!!! It feels like I've been waiting through such a long winter to finally get out into my yard and dig in the dirt. The kids are totally relieved to be able to get outside and hop on their bikes again. Well, new house this year so that brings lots of organizing and my favorite part...landscaping and planting lots and lots of flowers, and just getting the yard cleaned up for tons of future cookouts! LOVE SPRING!!!

-Sarah

My kids and I are bundled up inside. Although the other day it was 66, today it is snow, ice and crazy wind. Gotta love Kansas weather! (This coming Wed is supposed to be 66 again!)

Sarah and the rest of the family said...

Oh, I LOVE this line and I'm hoping that I win! Spring has me cleaning out the flower beds and watching the perennials return; filing taxes which leads to updating all our files and paperwork (file, purge, repeat); planning summer trips and a patio project. With mixed feelings, this is the time of year I spend the least amount of time in my craft room.

Romy said...

Green at Heart is such a beautiful line :) I know you make awesome projects for BG with their products, but do you have a part in designing any of their stuff?
Spring has me outside every morning until lunch time. This is the first time we have lived outside of FL, so it's the first time we've had to crave warm weather.

Cynthia B. said...

Ater a fun Spring Break stay-cation at home with my kids, this spring day finds me looking at cold and wet weather! But no matter - this coming week is my daughter's 8th birthday, so we're making plans for her birthday and big party. :)

As Spring reaches you guys at the top of the world, Autumn [Fall] has been knocking on our door down under.

You enjoy what the season has to offer, as we look to Winter and wrapping up warm.

I spent the first day of spring getting a new hair style, shopping with my aunt for scrapbooking goodies at several of the best stores in our area, and then having a family dinner celebration for three people in our family at a great chinese restaurant! Whew!!! It was a busy but totally fun day (and it was GORGEOUS and sunny today in Seattle!)

Sonya said...

Spring has me spending time outside, trying to housebreak my new puppy.

Linda said...

Yaaaay...you're back blogging again!!! Love it! Spring is the time of year when I clean out the kids clothes cupboards and donate to St Vinnies what they've grown out of and we start using our outdoor area more for Bar-B-Ques and afternoon teas....in the beautiful warm weather. xl

Lisa said...

Having started to feel like a bit of a hermit myself. I have found that the lovely weather of Spring has brought me out of the house. One new thing I've been doing is taking my camera with me to various parts of the city (including my own neighbourhood) to take photos. I go slowly as I'm trying to look at the world from a fresh perspective.
It has been a lot of fun!

Lainey said...

Went to the zoo yesterday - what a beautiful day!

Ginny said...

I'm doing anything I can to be outside. I'm spring cleaning & hoping to get all the windows sparkly clean this week. My husband has been designing a new storage area for my scrapbook supplies(we'll see how this goes),so I need to organize!

Enabler Queen said...

Spring has me cleaning and purging as well. Shhh, don't tell anyone but I have too much scrap stuff. Having said that, one can never have too much Basic Grey. I am also trying to squeeze in a card for my husbands birthday on the 25th. It is still a little cool here in my part of Canada for planting but it won't be much longer. I guess that means some yard work.

Boutchou said...

I like the spring!! A time(weather) to make the big household(housework) of the house and our outside ground!!

alisha said...

Spring has me cleaning, freshening up paintwork and planting. Also with Easter on the horizon making cute decorations and cards!!

Anonymous said...

Spring has me cleaning the house, the garage and the scrapbook room. Also, spending some time outside enjoying the warm weather - finally! So nice to hear the birds again. Getting ready for a yard sale as well. Busy, busy, busy!

Love the new BG line! It really says spring, doesn't it? Thanks for the chance to win it!

kmassman said...

Wow! What a nice giveaway! It is nice to see you posting again! I was almost thinking my RSS feed wasn't working!
Spring has me out in the garden picking daffodils and getting ready to walk outside. It was very cold here on the first day of spring! The day before was 70--that is Missouri!
Thanks!

Candy said...

I love Basic Grey....and you too. We have had really nice week of 60 degree weather and sunshine. I am trying to dry out from all the flooding this Spring. It is supposed to rain tomorrow!

CoreyW said...

well our first day of spring brought 6" of snow - BUT - I've also started cleaning out closets and dressers so my kids and i can do some spring clothes shopping!!!

Lindsey said...

The first day of spring has me trying to get back into shape.

Michelle said...

Spring has me thinking about cleaning out the closets, starting swim lessons, chirping birds, green grass, smell of dirt and rain, buds forming on the trees...I could go on. I love Spring. =)

Kristin Fredrick said...

HA! The first day of spring had us eagerly digging our bikes out of our shed, only to have it start snowing an hour later. BOO!

Debi said...

Just like everyone else, I'm cleaning. So glad that you are blogging again, Kelly. Really missed you.

c.darwin said...

Spring in San Diego is starting to feel like summer! So we're having outdoor BBQs with friends and soaking up the sun. Glad you're back and love this new collection!

Michelle Nelson said...

Spring has me DREAMING of changing my clothes from winter to "not quite winter". You see I live in Chicago and we have SNOW on the ground today. Every day is one day closer to it being "not quite winter" anymore! We'll see a week of Spring around May-ish, a month of Summer and then back we'll be again into "not quite winter".

Shawnsgirl315 said...

The weather has been so wonderful this week, I started some spring cleaning. But this year, I decided a good old uncluttering was not enough, so we started a household face lift. I am about halfway done with painting almost every room in the house, and am getting started on a bathroom remodel. I think it was definitely a great way to use my new found spring weather motivation.

Tina said...

I love spring, it's the end of winter!!! Yay!! No more snow and cold!
For me, I have been starting to clean up the yard, taking down all the winter decorations and getting ready for some nice sunny weather!
Ahhhh, BBQ's, sitting on the deck and opening windows to let some fresh air in!

Nicole said...

OH so many plans around here.
Planting and yard work.
Painting some rooms and decluttering rooms.
Organizing.
Starting a photography buisness.

I LOVE that paper line. I really hope that I win.
Have a great day.
Nicole M.

Zena said...

Spring has me (not unlike you) outside planting...flowers and vegetables; also has me outside after supper now that the clocks have changed.

cmw said...

Spring has me going in dozens of different directions at once! I feel so inspired and energetic that it's kind of hard to focus on just one project :)We have waaayyyy too much snow left to concider planting anything so I am putting that off. Horray for spring :)

Jessica said...

Scrapping! I just got home from a weekend scrapbook retreat and got a TON done. So thankful I went and relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful weather!

Kim Linton said...

Spring makes me want to open all the windows and start a new... planting flowers, getting back outside, etc. For some reason I have had Spring Fever really bad this year! FYI - I love this paper line too. TFS

Claude said...

I've been opening the windows! I love getting fresh air in the house!

Sheila said...

Well, it may be the first day of Spring, but it's still too early to do spring planting here in North Idaho. I do see my bulbs peeking their heads above ground though! Mostly we are staying indoors watching the rain and keeping warm!

Cindy F said...

Besides the usual spring cleaning, this year I am shopping for new trees. It's turned out to be more of a challenge than I expected, but it will be exciting to have new trees planted this spring and filling in the naked spots where old ones were removed in fall.

Cheryl said...

I am busy moving into a new house and as I unpack I am trying to purge and get rid of things I don't really need anymore. Thanks for the chance to win!

Actually going outside in the sun today with the little ones was more then enough for a super happy feeling. We need the sun soooo bad..
Even asked my 5 yo daughter if she wanted to go to the movies with me to watch the new disney movie "The Princess and the Frog" .. she said "you know mom.. I rather be outside.. look for lady bugs and pick some grass since there arent flowers yet".. and that's just more then enough.. isn't it? =D

Spring has me out chasing the kids on their bicycles. I love that they can get their energy out and be outdoors. We've had such beautiful days!

On the first day of Spring, I have been washing windows and cleaning out closets. I opened the windows and aired out the house...nothing smells so fresh as the first dose of spring air!

Spring = Out with the old, in with the new! Out with the old dustbunnies, in with the new CHA goodies. Out with eating unhealthy, in with exercise and salads. Out with winter doldrums, in with daylight savings time! I'm crafting and loving life!!

Wendy aka Bling Queen said...

Love this paper. Very spring

Mary Kay said...

Spring has me crafting again, after a long, long dry spell-- and it feels great. I think I've made more cards in the last week than in the previous two years!

Spring has me watching snow fall all morning, through the windows at work. Then walking home and watching a robin trying to find something to eat. Spring is my favourite time of year, new growth, new life and new inspirations.

I have been busy as a bee with spring cleaning.
Love the paper!

Karen Heyer said...

Spring totally refreshes me.. I LOVE to spring clean... inside and out. Here in Wisconsin it's hard to do the outside yet (we had snow yesterday!), but I've started inside! Cleaning out cabinets, getting rid of all the clutter of winter! And I can't wait to start gardening!! THAT is my favorite! My boys LOVE my homemade zucchini bread and I can't wait to plant the zucchini (plus all the other vegetables!).

Jane said...

LOVE this yummy paper and thanks for the chance!!

My husband and I bought a house with a pool a few months ago. It has a raised flower bed next to the pool that we started taking apart and moving to a different location so all the leaves and such will stop blowing into the pool. Then we'll have a nice area for seating...I see lounge chairs and a lil' fire pit in the near future=)

Chris said...

I've started pulling out the spring colors for cardmaking! Out with winter shades and in with the pastels. Love Basic Grey - thanks for sharing!

Chris said...

Totally spring cleaning!! Putting away space heaters and getting out box fans. Washing screens to be put back on windows. Clearing out closets! You know all that fun stuff!

Jacki Marie said...

The colors are beautiful! Spring has me sitting on the back deck with my laptop instead of sitting in the basement. : )

Terri said...

Spring has me trying to choose pictures for the next BG POTM. Can't decide if I want to use Spring Flowers or change it up some way. Either way, I'm enjoying the sunshine comin' in the window.

katie said...

Spring has me ripping out the dead plants and planting some new ones. Happy spring!

Cathy... said...

Spring has me de-cluttering my house like a madwoman and getting bags and bags of clothing and household items together to donate to Goodwill. I can't stand clutter either!
