We interrupt this regularily scheduled blog post...

This blog was supposed to feature my anniversary scraplift of the fabulous Trish! However, last week I got a crazy idea, which forced the layout to the wayside. My school is sponsoring a flea market and craft show this coming Saturday, and I thought it might be a good opportunity to clean out some of my scrapbooking stash. I started going through it...and...WOW. I know I have a lot of supplies, but I don't think I ever knew how MUCH I truly have!!

I'm having a great time going through everything. I'm finding things that I *had* to have, but never used. And papers that I used over and over and only have a tiny scrap left. It is very eye-opening to see the amount of things I haven't used. Here is a look at what I have gathered so far...

I thought in the spirit of some good Olympic competition...we could have our own little contest. To be entered, guess how much money I will make at the Flea Market! Whoever comes closest to the actual amount will win a prize pack from me. :) To help you out...here are some hints!

In the first photo:
  • In the way back is a big stack of old Scrapbook Trends magazines which I am selling for 3 dollars each.
  • In the blue bin in the back are LOTS of bags of buttons and flowers.
  • The green wooden basket thingy probably has 25 packs of brand new embellishements, priced from $.50-$3.00.
  • The green dotted box has Stickles, Pearl Ex, Glitter and other things like that.
  • The plastic bin in front has LOTS Of chipboard.
  • The light blue basket on the right has mini albums and alterables.
In the second photo:
  • The left bin contains patterned paper, packs of cardstock, and stamps.
  • The basket in front has ribbon...packages and loose.
  • The right bin contains everything else! A big bag of alphabets, a big bag of stickers and rubons (most stickers are $1, most rubons are $2), and a bunch of "scrap packs" that I made up.
Leave a comment with your guess by Saturday evening, and I will post a winner on Sunday! (I apologize, but only US and Canadian scrappers, please...the shipping overseas is just too much!!) I will share my scraplift at the end of the month! Happy Guessing! :)

oh this is a fabulous way to clean out your stash. My friends and I just did a mini-stash trade where we made kits for each other from our stash and then drew names to trade- superfun! Well, I'll guess that you will make about $215.00. I think you could make a lot more but since the economy is not so great there may be some price hagglers! :) lol!!!
