the big purge

Well I did it.
I finished purging all my themed embellishments and let me tell you - it felt great!
I have a big file drawer full of embellie holder type plastic thingeys (that's the technical name).
For each theme/holiday, I had one that was overflowing/crammed packed!
Now they are full but only with stuff I truly still love.
Some of the embellishments had dates on the back (who knew?) and some said 2001!
Wow. Hoard much, Tracie?

So my drawer is happy now. See how happy it looks?

And I have this huge-mongous pile of stuff to get rid of.
Some of it is fairly new.
How should I go about selling it? Do tell!

Here's a sneak peek of two crafty projects I'm going to tackle this month.
One is a canvas I started at Girl Scout Camp.
I'm going to add a long quote to it with paper strips.
The other is a picture I'm renovating. :)
More on that later.
So now I have obligated myself to show you four things this month, those two, my Disney album and how I run things through the printer perfectly.

I better get crafty this weekend!

Here's a pic from last night. My husband played at a quaint little place nearby and we had some friends join us for food and fun. Loved it! I had a big ole juicy cheeseburger and fries. Yummy-yum. It was mind-numbingly loud but good for the soul! (The music - not the cheeseburger.)

great organizing. selling it..hmm find a group of friends to have a scrapbook yard sell or bundle it all up to fit in a one price shipping box and sell on ebay or make someone(s) day very happy happy and donate it to the local elementary school art program. Good luck on what you do.

What a purge! I don't visit ebay much anymore to know how well embellishments, etc. do there. You could donate the stuff to a hospital or local Girl Scout Group.
It would be great to donate them to a school as well.

You did an awesome job at organizing! I love to purge and see what inspiration that it can bring.

I just did the same and boy does it feel good! I sold a lot of my stuff on Craigslist and it was pretty easy. Good luck!
