2010 Quilt Goals Revisited – The final post!

I’m doing a series of posts (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6) on my progress so far on my 2010 Quilting Goals.

Goal 13 – Get rid of stamping stuff

Writing about this Goal reminds me that I need to re-list things on CraigsList. I have done pretty well about selling my stamping stuff. Most of the paper is gone along with most of the ink pads and markers. I’d be very happy to have more of it gone by now, but not eager enough to part with it for the piddly amount of money that people have had the audacity to offer. Some of these offers have made me want to respond – Would you rather I pay YOU to take it???

In any event, I’m still finding humor in dealing with the responses. I hope that I find another big selling period soon! And I think that in my decluttering I will find more things that I want to list on CraigsList with these stamping items.

By the way, if any stampers are interested in the items that I am selling, just drop me an email through my profile. Most of what I have is from Stampin’ Up – some 12 by 12 card stock, punches, glitter, embossing powders, etc. :)

Goal 14 – Get to 1,000 posts on blog for Awesome Giveaway!

This week, I made a list of the last few things that I want to add to the Giveaway! I have pulled the fabric out of my stash to make these items and I can’t wait to get started on them!

So far, I have an Art Bin, 4 novels (maybe 5 depending on space) that I have read, some notions and fat quarters! I may have to see if I can find some patterns that I can add. Possibly, the McCall’s pattern for the Snuggie? The McCall’s patterns will be on sale at Joann’s next week!!!

I’m having a lot of fun deciding on things to add! And I think that I can get the hand made items done this weekend! Hooray!!!

And now for the best news? This post is post #956!! This means that I have 44 posts left until the giveaway! I think that I will start a countdown when I get closer to 1,000, but I am very excited! Are you?

I think the pups are!!

You are a few posts ahead of me. I just posted #938. I think I will start collecting for a big giveaway at 1000 also - great idea.

The pups look very excited!

Congratulations on the de-clutter! It is so freeing to do things like that. The first week of June is our traditional de-clutter here. Big clean on the kids room and usually another room or two in the house. It feels so good when it is done.

What, you're going to pay people to get rid of your stuff. Dang, I should have gone to your house when I was over there! ;0)

I think you need to blog more, 44 seems like a long ways yet.

The pups look like they want to eat your camera...or do you have a treat in your hand! They look hungry.
