Scrapbooking Grab Box: Support a Great Cause and Maybe Even Win an iPad!

Send to Kindle

I heard about THIS on the 2peas General Scrappin’ board. Hayley is raising money for a humanitarian mission by selling boxes full of scrappy goodness for only $45 INCLUDING SHIPPING!

Yowser! I SO want to buy one (or nine) … but I can’t. I’ve been on somewhat of a spree lately (gulp) and need to pull back the reins on the scrappy spending horse. And OH how I would love to win an iPad. I think I’m the last person in America without one, LOL.

Since I can’t buy a box, I’ll do the next best thing and tell you about it … so you can buy one … and tell us about it when you receive it. See how that works? Share the love (donation to a good cause) and share the love (tell us what you get so we can live through you).

It’s a win-win … am I right?

Pink Paislee 2011 Warehouse Sale = Grab Box of Goodness!

Send to Kindle

It’s that TIME again! It’s their 3rd annual sale.

The Peas are talking about it HERE and HERE.

I got the PP warehouse boxes in both 2009 and 2010. However, I think I’m going to pass this year. When I look at the sample in their ad and also think about the lines they’ve come out with since the last box, I have to be honest and say not a lot of it was up my alley. Not that it wasn’t great stuff – ‘cuz it was, it was! Just not my style.

{Not to mention the fact that my current scrapbook room reorg. has me VERY well aware that I have puh-lenty of pretty papers and general scrapbook goodness}.

Yeah, I’ll probably kick myself later, especially when everyone starts posting pics of their boxes when they arrive. But I’m gonna’ hang tough.

How about you? Did you order a PINK PAISLEE 2011 warehouse box … or are you gonna’?

October Afternoon: “Santa’s Sack Sale”

Send to Kindle

What a nice way to start your morning. I sit down at the computer with my cawfee, open up the 2peas scrapping board, and the first post I see is THIS ONE.

My first reaction was, of course, …. YEAH – HOOOOOOEY!

Because I {heart} OCTOBER AFTERNOON. They’re my favorite company lately and I’ve been buying up their lines, new and old. I checked out the LINK to the OA blog where the details of the Santa’s Sack Sale are given. Huh … $39.99 is a GREAT price. They’ll flat rate ship, and even ship internationally which a lot of US scrapbook companies won’t do.

Then comes the internal dialogue: “Should I do it? Should I do it? Huh? Huh? Can I afford it? How much is in Paypal account? Wonder how much of the new lines would come with it?” The enabling voice in my head blathered on like that for quite a bit (could it be the cawfee?).

Well, ultimately, I think I’m going to pass, for these reasons:

- I need another mini album like I need another donut. Which is to say, I don’t.
- I already own most of their papers, excepting the 3 new lines (yeah, I’m a paper ho and I admit it)
- The cards aren’t really my thing. Of the few packs I’ve gotten in kits, I see using only 1 or 2 of them.
- I like their 12×12 alphabet stickers but I really *love* the Mini Market Alphas. They don’t specify which type of alphas you’ll get.

I think the smarter thing for me to do would be to spend that $40 on buying exactly what I want from their 3 new lines, which I haven’t purchased yet. {Okay, you’ve GOT to give me propers for finding a way to justify spending money on new OA by virtue of NOT spending on the OA grab box. I keep telling you people, I’m the Master}.

I have to admit, I’ll miss being included in the “scrapbook frenzy” this sale is sure to cause. I’ll miss getting the box, inhaling it’s lovely scent, and taking pics to share with you bloggy peeps.

But I’ll live vicariously through you, k? I think *you* should order the box. Then show me pics when you get it. Deal?
