It's About Time! ***Giveaway***

Okay, so I have been extremely blessed by many bloggers out there who have offered awesome giveaways and have even been nice enough to draw my name as the winner! LOL! No, seriously, though...I have been fortunate and I have been feeling like I really need to give something back in some way since I am so amazingly grateful!

This weekend I put together a large bag STUFFED with scrapbook stuff for a friend who I hope will be able to use it. The thing is....I didn't even give her half of what I have to give! Yikes! Yes, folks, we are talking PURGE! De-Stash City, here folks! It's a little crazy!

SO...here's the deal... I am going to offer a De-Stash prize to one of my readers! The instructions for entering the giveaway are all down at the bottom of this post. Be sure to read carefully so that you fully qualify! Here is what I plan to do...
I am going to stuff one Flat Rate Priority USPS box with Crafty STUFF! As you know, I am a paper crafter, so it is mostly scrapbook supplies. Some items may be brand new, some items may be gently used, others items may include partial sticker sheets with lots still useable on them....you know how it goes...this is a de-stash, folks! I can promise you that it will be LOTS of stuff! I have already pulled paper, stamps, and embellishments that I know will be included.

Here's the deal...with every 50 comments that I get I am going to try to post a sneak of something that is in the box. That way it will be fun to watch the box grow as the giveaway continues. You have until midnight, Friday, March 13th to enter. I will try to announce the winner on the 14th since that's my sister's birthday and that seems like a good day to let someone win something fun!

Here are a couple of photos of some of the piles I am pulling from:

Paper!  Paper!  Paper!

Stuff!

So, there you have it! I may even throw in some non-crafty fun stuff if I get lots and lots of entries! That is always fun!

Ways to Enter
1. This step is REQUIRED! If this step is not completed no others will be counted. Please tell me if you purchase handmade goods and if you do, where do you get them. I'd love to know why you get them there, too!

Extra Entries:

2. Sign up as a follower of my blog. Be sure to leave an extra comment letting me know you have done so. If you are already a follower leave a comment because that counts, too!
3. Blog about this giveaway and include a link to this post, as well as the general link to my blog. Be sure to leave TWO extra comments letting me know you have done so with a link to your post. This counts as two entries, but you must leave two extra comments!
4. Follow me on Twitter and Tweet about this giveaway. Please leave an extra comment with the link to your tweet letting me know you did this!

Be sure you leave a separate comment for EACH entry. This is the only way they will be counted!
U.S. shipping addresses, please.
Be sure to leave contact info in case you win!

ETA: We have exceeded the 50 comments mark so here is a quick sneak! Just a little one! I will add more as we get more comments in! This is fun!

I do buy handmade goods because I usually support individuals instead of companies. Looks like the government is giving money to all the bigger companies, so who's looking out for the self employed... I AM!

ScRaPbOoKfReNzY said...

I love handmade stuff! My favorite place to buy is etsy, although before I knew about that site, I bought stuff off of ebay. I also like to go to local arts & crafts festivals and flea markets. My favorite things right now are little girl hairbows and paper crafts like handmade journaling spots.

I usually make my own handmade crafts, although I am a sucker for any craft show or fair! Love handmade goodies...especially for gifts. Thanks for doing this giveaway...I look forward to following you.

lfhpueblo said...

I rarely buy handmade gifts, because I tend to make my own. If I do, it's usually at a charity bazarre or church bazarre in my own town. That way I can see the item first hand. I make my own cards, even did today for my mother-in-laws birthday. I like to buy patterns though for multiple types of crafts, except crochet and knitting, because a woman at church shares hers.

AmandaK said...

I haven't bought handmade items in a while. In fact, I'm saving money up right now to buy my Mom her birthday gift from Etsy. I just hope I don't spend it all before I can save it!

I definitely buy handmade goods and generally go so at craft fairs. I love not only making handmade gifts but giving them away too. I just found etsy and have been browsing through this site and LOVE it. It will become my new go-to place when trying to find something original over the internet. I am a scrapbook fiend - and love going to scrapbook expos and scrapbook stores across the country to find products made by local artisans. This is a great giveaway and good luck to all!

Terri said...

I have a friend that so's oh so cute girl and boy clothes, so I buy homemade goods from her. I also have used Etsy, a site I could spend hours upon hours on. What a great giveaway.

I purchase hand made goods locally at fairs, festivals and Hillbilly days. I look to look and feel of what I'm buying and like supporting the community.

Marilyn said...

Jingle, I don't buy handmade stuff, so I am little help. Unfortunately it isn't due to lack of interest, I would love to be able to buy handmade stuff, I am just broker than broke!!! Although, I DID buy 2 of Kelliannie's stamp sets from Lilac City Designs!!

Where do I buy my handmade goods? That's an easy one! Etsy, of course. It is my one stop shop mostly because of the convenience of on-line shopping. As a mother of two young children, it is not, shall we say, always a pleasurable experience to take them into stores. :)

Great giveaway, Jingle. I love returning to your site time and again and always seeing your positive attitude come shining through.

Yes, I do buy handmade items, mostly around Christmas time and at boutiques. My mom use to take me to a lot of craft boutiques when i was little, so to me, it feels like that is what I have to do around Christmas. it makes it feel more real during the holidays.

Sharon Harmon said...

I occasionally purchase handmade goods, but I usually do it in November and December, for the holidays. I like to go to craft fairs, where people bring their own homemade crafts/goods and set up a table to sell them. Anything like Christmas decorations, to homemade scarves and aprons, fresh-baked bakery goods, to candles and jewelry. It's all one-of-a-kind, wonderful, reasonably-priced, made-from-the-heart finds!! Thank you for the contest!

LIDARKSIDE said...

I love going to craft fairs, but I rarely ever end up buying anything knowing that I can very well make it myself. The problem is that I can never find the time anymore for crafting--I have four children ranging in age 1 1/2 to 16. The day will come again when I'll have the time to do what I enjoy. My "UserID" is my contact email.

I've bought handmade on both Ebay & Etsy that is about it. I'm sure some time in the past, I've also bought at craft fairs before. They advertise them locally all the time in the summer!

I've never really thought of looking for a specific store that sells handmade goods, but if anyone knows of a good one I'd love to take a peek!

I do, on the streets of Soho, Manhattan, where I work. I prefer to see them in person!

Most times I will make something myself for a gift; other times, I go to yard sales or local bazaars and get some really nice hand made things. I have purchased once from the Etsy Shop which was fun. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway.

I buy handmade all the time! Unfortunately, I mean that almost literally :) I am on etsy as a seller & blog, so I am always seeing these great goodies. I tend to mostly buy from etsy, since that is where I spend most of my online time. But ArtFire has their share of my money. And Silkfair & Crobbies & Wink Elf & Shop Handmade & Cafe Handmade...and and and...are bound to get some too :)

All these places have such a large variety of artists, it's great to just browse too. That is why I have a treasury blog..for all the items I can't buy.

I think that handmade stuuf is wonderful! When a person takes their time to make you a gift It really comes from the heart. I love them. I also buy items at yard sales or flea markets that are homemade and it also make the person feel real good when you buy them

I do buy handmade items. I usually purchase them during the October "Covered Bridge Festival" in Indiana. I like buying my handmade items there because there is so much variety of items and something new every year. Thanks for the chance to win!

I seldom buy homemade goods. They are not easy to find. I buy them when I come across vendors online. garrettsambo@aol.com
