I've been so busy that I haven't had time to stay on top of my blog reading. I hope all my friends out there are doing well. I'll catch up soon!
I seem to have bitten off a little more than I can chew this year.
I signed myself up for four holiday swaps. Yes, four. Yikes! I'm having a cookie party on Saturday. I am still cleaning and decorating. I can't have a Christmas cookie party with no Christmas decorations up! Lol. And I'm constantly distracted by Words with Friends! Yes, I love that game.
So, I am doing some serious decluttering since my mother-in-law and sister-in-laws are coming over to my house for the first time for the cookie party. I can't have them thinking crazy thoughts about my house keeping skills. Actually I lack the house keeping gene but can't have them knowing that, lol.
I'm so messy and just love stuff! I always see a reason to keep stuff. I think to myself "I can really use this when I get a bigger house or when I do blah, blah, blah I'll need this." That way of thinking is really holding me back. I've heard that a cluttered house leads to a cluttered mind or something like that. Well, it's true!! My mind is always occupied with "I've gotta clean this or I can't do this because stuff is in the way." My house is in a constant state of disarray, so much so that I have to embark on a major cleaning frenzy before I can even invite people over.
No more, nope, I'm getting it together.
I think that this will help me not only in my personal life (my husband can't stand all my clutter!) but also professionally. Right now, there are things I want to make but don't feel like getting out the sewing machine because it's a huge undertaking to drag it out of the closet. I feel like there is so much clutter in my craft room that it is blocking my creativity. In my defense, it is a guest bedroom/office/craft room, lol.
So, I've said all this to tell you that I'm have a giveaway, several of them actually. I have so much scrapbooking/crafty items that I'm giving much of my stash away. This is new stuff. Unopened, still in package, new, shiny things. Stickers, paper, embellishments, all kinds of goodies. All you have to do is visit my shop (LeeLu Creations on etsy) and leave me a comment about which is your fave item. Or just tell me how fabulous of a person I am. Whatever. Just leave me a comment on this post. I will randomly pick at least five winners so hopefully that many people will enter, lol. I will pick the winners Thursday evening so you can enter any time up to Thursday, 11/30/12 before 6 PM Eastern. I hope to ship on Friday if I can get the winners addresses.
