an update and a little goodie giveaway...

Hi there peeps....

I thought I better get a post in again this month... the inspiration just isn't hitting me. I have not scrapped a thing in weeks. oh, but I keep buying things... why???? I know I'm not the only one with this that is why I host a challenge blog for using your stash.. =) gotta find ways to use up my impulse buys.. my local friends that have seen my scrap area KNOW I should seek therapy... ack!!!!  ok.. here is a little peak of what the east side of my area looks like... this was when the cubes were empty... *notice past tense here*.. =)

and this is my work area that faces the south side of the basement cave I have...
Perhaps I'll put a virtual tour together with my new flip cam. anyone interested in seeing all my stash???

So....I have nothing really crafty to share, but I do have a little random blog giveaway for one lucky follower. One of the things that happens occasionally when I'm on a spending spree, I buy something I already have.. well, this time I was at Joann's looking at Sizzix dies and came across a few on clearance... well, this butterfly one really caught my eye... the problem is, I liked it so much I bought it twice.. =) my error, your win...

You are now asking yourself what do I need to do to win this Sizzix die??? well, become a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment letting me know you visited and became a follower.. and if you are already a follower you are ahead of the plan, and just leave me a comment telling me your latest scrapbook purchase.. help me feel better about my shopping habits.. lol. =)

I'll leave this giveaway up through midnight EST June 29th since that is my Birthday and I will draw the winner on the 30th, and announce it on July 1. My gift to you...=)

Here is a picture of the die... It's called Butterfly and Dragonfly.  It can be used in your Sizzix bigkick or bigshot. I can't vouch for using it in anything else.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank all my friends that have made my scrapbooking experience online that much better. I've truly meet some wonderful people online who I call my friends... I don't think unless you experience this first hand that others understand, but I know my blogging and Internet buddies totally relate.. even when we are separated by time zones. 

love and hugs...

And just a little reminder, the Scrapbookers Anonymous June Challenge is going strong.. come by and play with us. lots of inspiration on the blog.. =)


  1. Love your craft space and would definitely like to see more,I'm so nosey.
    I bought another Martha Stewart border punch on Monday as if I needed another one,lol. Xxxx

  2. Love the checkered floor and would love to see more! Just got my latest kit club and Two Peas in the mail, like I need more stuff!

  3. You do have an incurable problem! But I can't complain as I do benefit from it. And as you know I have the same problem, I'm just not as far gone as you... yet. And let me think, my last purchase. Would it be the Smash finds from acot, or the glitz stamps that are on there way from peachycheap? Oh wait, does the clip it up you found for me on clearance count as I haven't paid you for it yet? ;)

    My latest scrapbook purchase would be from Archivers: several October Afternoon ABC's and misc papers. OH and...Tim Holtz scissors! They rock!

  7. Hehe...I think I've passed that stage...there is light at the end of the tunnel - saturation point. My last purchase was adhesives!!! I've been good! *LOL*

    P/s: Love your scrappy space...I scrap on my bed...;)

  8. Blogger's playing up again - it wouldn't let me leave a comment but I tried again and here I am. I'd like to see those cubes now they are full.
    And the last thing I bought - well a box full of goodies from t'internet including a kraft card pack and an X cut border punch system.

  9. SNAP!!!... looks like we both are having the same problem... I have a corner... imagine if I have a crafty space like you... !!! lets not go there... but Ive been pretty good these 3 weeks!!!

    love the die!!! CUte.... oh and I "envy" your space...COZY!!!... hugs..xoxo

  10. LOL, sounds familiar, is that ME? No, you do not have a problem, we all need new stuff, LOL!
    Would love to see your crafting space, I just did a spring cleaning last week, you should see the whole craft room piling up with shipping boxes with stuff in there!
