It is coming – scary, I know!
So this week the challenge theme is “Anything goes” I figure since it does in fact say ANYTHING, that I would take on the craft project that is vital this time of year. The project being preparing my annual craft supply box! Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. Join the fun by creating a project this week – and for your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge here. What will you feature? We can’t wait to see!
Here’s my video:
What I gather:
- pre-cut dies/punches/embossing
What I don’t do is go overboard with amounts – I would rather use/empty it out a bit and then add more vs have so much that I can’t find things. I also don’t put solid color/neutral stuff in unless it is scraps left over from other projects.
Now that I’ve got my supplies, I should be ready to craft up a storm… right? RIGHT??? 😉
Special this week only for you my fabulous blog readers… if you want to join me (and some fabulous contributors!) you can register for the new Holiday Crafting class here – and get $5 taken off automatically using this link.

Great video. Thanks for sharing how you organize your items for projects. I do something similar for each layout I’m planning. If I have it in front of me I won’t forget. Good luck with the new class, I’d bet it’s awesome. Michelle t
I must be ready for the holidays, I jumped all over your holiday class, can’t wait to see what you’ve come up with!! I’m trying to enjoy the fall season, but I find I am ready to pull out my Christmas type supplies and see what I have to work with.
I like your idea not to put too much in your basket at a time. not being overwhelmed works for me too!
I keep three plastic shoe boxes stocked with trimmings: Birthday, Christmas and Love (Valentine’s Day, weddings, etc.) that I turn to when I’m working on a particular card. Makes life so much easier! I also keep stamps separate. Of course, there’s lots of other stuff that could make its way into a project, too….
Great idea to start getting into the spirit! 🙂
Christmas already??? Thank you, May, for giving me this much-needed reality check. It doesn’t seem so daunting when you focus on the first step of assembling supplies. Thanks for making the holiday crafting season seem not only do-able, but enjoyable if taken in small steps!
Love this idea … and I should send you all my snowflakes! having an Aussie Christmas means it’s summer – so I pull all the snowflakey items out of my Xmas stash and put them in my white drawer to use for winter related projects!
Love Christmas!! Can’t wait to get started!
Great video, I so enjoy your how happy you sound about the Holiday. Hope you will be on Paperclipping to talk Christmas.
Great video and great idea! I need to get started too… Hugs, Sandra
FUN video. I need to put together supplies to finish more Christmas cards at a crafty get-together with friends. This inspires me to pull out a cute basket & gather my card supplies so I’ll be all ready!
Love your great ideas in the video, May. Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂
