Stash it Forward - GO! ***AUSTRALIA ONLY***

So this box I have is a good 3" deep, 12"x12" box full to the brim of fun stuff. It is, in fact, an entire STASH IN A BOX. How it works is...

Emily of the generous heart and brilliant ideas had this idea, and I, among others, am joining right in. In her words:

"i have a box chokka-block full of stuff for someone who actually needs it ;)
[just to be clear - someone who doesn't have a budget at all for art supplies!]. leave me a comment if you, or someone you know of could really do with some artsy goodness, and i'll draw a random name."

So the specifics for my giveaway are... I'll draw a name on Tuesday morning (AEST), and am limiting the giveaway to Australian residents. Sorry anyone else, but this box is HEAVY and the joy would somewhat dissipate if shipping the thing kills my own budget! I noticed most of the other stash-it-forwarders are limiting their to the States, so I'm doing it for us Antipodeans (I don't even know if that makes sense, but it sounds cool!). Feel free to name a friend or someone you know who needs it, this is all about helping someone who longs to create but is unable to finance buying supplies.
The box includes stuff from Queen & Co, Rouge de Garance, Love Elsie, KI Memories, Scenic Route, Basic Grey, Heidi Swapp, SEI, Bazzill, Hambly, Bam Pop, Collage Press, Making Memories, We R Memory Keepers, American Crafts, Cherry Arte, Fontwerks, Sassafras Lass, Autumn Leaves, Rusty Pickly, Jenni Bowlin, Plain Jane Chipboard, Creative Imaginations, a full Q Tea Kit as well as a bunch of lace, fabric, vintage and funky bits and pieces.

So... GO!

Those goodies look so beautiful and I am in desperate need of some inspiration without "blowing the budget" and feeling completely guilty. Please consider me...

Thanks for being so generous Danielle. I would like to nominate my best friend Tania for this stash, she does it so tough with 4 kids and a DH who can only get part-time work ATM, certainly no money for the craft she so loves and keeps her sain.

Wow Danielle what a stash.

I would like to nominate my girl friends daughter Josie. She is 15 and doing it pretty tough with some yukky stuff going on at school at the moment. She loves to scrap and being still at school she doen't have much of a scrap budget.

Hi, I live in Victoria and have a very good friend who is extremely unwell. She has had double maschemtomy, and has recently had part of her bowel removed she is only 34 - I am fundraising to give her two boys 10 and 12 some sort of future!
I would be happy to forward a stash of goodies to someone else who is deserving
Thanks for your kind heart

So, we are banning the U.S. now?? ha ha jk!

I think 'stash it forward' is such a great idea!!

I always 'recycle'! Every few months I purge and pass. I pass it on to friends for them to use. ANd all I ask is for them to do the same thing when they are done. It's kind of like recycling. lol

Have a good day!!
