If you have not had a chance to take a look at all the wonderful spring cleaning tips that have been listed, I suggest that you do. I know that I got some great ideas for myself. I’m crossing my fingers that I can take those tips in doing some major cleaning this weekend. Maybe you can also.
THANKS to everyone who listed a tip. We have randomly picked 4 winners to receive our boxes of goodies. Congratulations to the following:
- LISA who said…I've sorted through all of my scrapbooking papers, stickers, die-cuts, tools, even my magazines, and have been having a lot of fun freecycling unwanted or even (yikes!) unused items that I've accumulated over the years.
Austin, TX has a fabulous network of Freecycling members and the response I've received to parceling out my scrapbooking paraphernalia has got to be the fastest thing movin' out there in the world of scrapbooking cyberspace.
- MARIA HERNANDEZ who said…I store my scrap cardstock by color in 12 x 12 envelopes in my bottom desk drawer. When I am looking for a color, all I have to do is pull the envelope out and it is easy to see if I have a scrap for the project I am working on. It helps save on not having to cut into a new sheet of cardstock because my scraps are easy to find.
- ALLI who said…I have a great ribbon storage suggestion -- I use lingerie/laundry type mesh bags. Just put the ribbon in the bag and pull an inch or two of ribbon through the mesh. I have a few bags and they're organized by color. The bags also have hooks so I can hang them up while I'm scrapping.
- SHANNON OWENS who said… I save all my scrap pieces of paper in zip lock bags... nothing new there... but I give them away to new scrapbooking friends... aka newbies to scrapbooking... and then have a get together and show them how to use the new pieces of paper for their scrapbooks... the pieces are big enough for punches or even background for a photos, etc... they love it, I get to share my love of scrapbooking, and it gets stuff out of my house.
