|Snapshot of Heather's box.|
A couple weeks ago, I lucked out and received a box of arts/crafts goodies from Heather at Dollar Store Crafts. Then Lola decapitated one of the items inside and I have been on the hunt for headless crow crafts ever since.
I can only imagine these items came from Heather's cupboards, waiting for a rainy day when they can come out and play.
I have rainy day cupboards too. In fact, I have a whole rainy day room.
Despite my own extensive goody stash, receiving Heather's box got me thinking about new projects and ways to approach materials. With that in mind, it's only right I pay it forward and send out some stash busting boxes of my own...
At the end of this week I'll send out three boxes chalk full of creative materials. Some are new, some are old, some are vintage, some are funky. Not funky as in smelly, I mean funky as in, What am I supposed to make from plastic alligators?
These are the challenges of our times.
Update 5/2/11: Winners have been chosen. Thank you for everyone who entered!
Want a box? Its easy. Leave comment below, on Twitter, or on Facebook, in regards to this post with the words "send me a box!"
Winners will be chosen at random, Sunday May 1st, 9pm CST.
Can I really call people winners? You're not so much winning as helping me.
You win stuff. I win cupboard space. We are both winners.
So, you are probably wondering what sort of goodies are in store. Good question. Let me take you on a tour...
|Everyone has a shoebox with old beads and junky costume jewelry. Its not my fault that mine grew out of its shoebox ten years ago. Don't look at me. It was hungry!|
|Seriously y'all, what am I going to do with seven shades of blue ric-rack trim? Help me.|
|You need mermaid rhinestones. I know you do.|
|A whole rainbow assortment of bias tape. And this is just the stuff still in packages!|
|I have three drawers laebled "TOYS. NOT FOR KIDS." That says about about me.|
|There is a tupperware container the size of a small child filled with nothing but paper lanterns. Why?|
|Who buys rainbow sponges in Chinatown thinking "These will look great as gift wrap. I'll take ten."|
|Feathers. Gobs of them. Every size an color. Kitty not included.|
|Button, button, who got the button? I do!|
Keep in mind, this is just the stuff I am tossing. One day I'll get up the courage to take you on a tour of the rainy day room, aka, The Lion's Den.
Until then, let me know if you are ineterested in getting abox of your own. No obligations or strings attached. I hope the recipients will pay it forward and make something, or maybe use this as an excsue to purge some stuff of their own, but I leave that part up to you.
Sign up by leaving a message below, on facebook, or on twitter with the words "send me a box."
I'll chose one "winner" from each source, so you can triple your chances and sign up in all three places if you really want a box that bad. No restrictions on location, just make sure you let me know you are interested before Sunday, May 1, 9pm CST.
