Saturday Fun: Guess-n-Give Away!

I had no idea I am a hoarder of some things...I don't consider myself beleagered by the need to unnecessarily hang onto things that no longer serve their intended purpose.

But...I discovered that I am hoarding one particular thing long after its usefulness in hopes that some day and some how I might glean inspiration.

I've been avoiding the truth until now, but it had become too painful to ignor. I'm hoarding.

The truth shall set me free!

Honestly, I've been avoiding the truth and the necessary clean up because, well...because its time consuming and I have no patience for chores that are time consuming right this second..

But, I did it anyway!

This is how it worked out:

I got rid of 43.

I cleaned up 2.

I acquired 3.

The net: 157.

Here's the question: Can you guess what I've been hoarding? Any guesses as to what I'm talking about?

I won't give you hints...but I will say that I'll offer this sweet little packet of goodies:

Here's what's in it:

Printed Paper (all double sided):
1 sheet Lilybee Design Lovely: Splendid
1 sheet Crate Paper Cottage Collection: Flight
1 sheet Making Memories Flutter: Word
1 sheet October Afternoon Farm Fresh: Hay Barn
1 sheet October Afternoon Fly a Kite: Strawberry Jam
1 sheet Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety: Bloom
1 sheet Pink Paislee Cupid Collection: Love Potion

Specialty Papers:
1 My Little Shoebox Lil' Critter: Molehill scallop circle die cut
1 Prima Marketing Signs of Spring Bird die cut
1 Basic Grey Doilies laser cut in pink
1 Basic Grey Doilies laser cut in green

1 Making Memories pill box
1 pkg Studio Calico Blue Doilies Rub-ons
1 pkg Hambly Screen Print Rubon
1 pkg American Crafts By the Yard Thickers in Leaf
1 pkg Prima Marketing Cardstock Stickers in Strawberry

So, leave me a comment with your guess about what I've cleaned up. I'll give the packet to either

a) the right answer


b) a randomly chosen entry if more than one person guesses right.


c) a randomly chosen entry if everyone's guess is incorrect.

You have until midnight ET on Sunday to give it a whirl.

Leave me a comment and make sure I can track back to you to notify you if you have won my little prize.

Peace, ya'll!

PS: Come thought of SOMETHING when I told you I was cleaning!!

I don't need to take the scrap stuff (Lord knows I don't have time for scrapping!), but I've got a guess! I'll keep it to myself and check later to see if I'm right :)

sets of alphabets?

Hmmm, I'm going to go with stamps. Only because I am a "collector" of them myself (I refuse to say hoarder).


Rachel said...

I was thinking photographs, but...stamps seems more likely! I think photos are just on my mind because I BADLY need to go through and organize, delete, print, etc. Ugh! :)

im guessing spools of ribbon. :)
great little game/giveaway!!

MaryC said...

Although I think 'stamps' is the correct answer since there was cleaning involved. But I'll guess magazines, cuz that's my weakness, as you are aware.

Melissa Elsner said...

I'm going to say stamps! Those are extremely easy to hoard.

Oooh.. or maybe it's punches... hmm.. now I'm second guessing myself.

**** April **** said...

I'm with Mary, I was going to say stamps.... rubber stamps... or alpha sets (ha!) Naaah, that's TOO MANY alpha stamps ...

or SHOES! bwa ha ha ha ha... should I call you Amelda?

Barb P said...

I'm going to guess magazines

Samantha said...

My first thought was sorry, half-used alphabets...because I've got about a bazillion of them myself that I need to go through and convince myself to part with.
