Spring Cleaning = Mystery Treasure Boxes

I know it's been awhile since my last post.  I've been busy with some swaps that will be blogged about soon...but I've also been working on cleaning up & reorganizing my studio.  Right now, it's in that stage I always go through when cleaning & reorganizing...making more of a mess than I had when I started.  Do you do that???  It seems I can't avoid that step.  No photos today...maybe after it's all cleaned up.

And while I've known this for a long time, my biggest problem is that I simply have TOO MUCH STUFF!!!  (I can hear that George Carlin routine about stuff every time I'm in my studio!)  It's all GOOD stuff, of course...because I like good stuff.  However, when you can hardly even get to the shelves in your studio because of all the stuff, it's time to do a serious purge of that stuff.

Here's where the Mystery Treasure Boxes come in.  I've started to fill some Medium Flat Rate boxes with an assortment of stuff.  It's all stuff I like to use or have too much of...or couldn't resist because it was a great deal in that clearance bin years ago.

I've moved part of the studio mess into the living room where I have some room to work & so far I have 3 Mystery Treasure Boxes filled up & waiting for new homes.  From the looks of things, I can fill many more boxes before I'm done.  I'm offering these boxes for sale...I'd love to be able to just share them, but since I'm still not working, that option is not available.

Here's the deal...each box sells for $30.00 which INCLUDES the Priority Flat Rate postage & Delivery Confirmation.  I can fit a lot into one of these flat rate boxes...the people at the PO are always amazed at that.  I'm not just shoving a bunch of stuff into a box...I'm making sure there is a good assortment of everything that's currently available in these.  They're great for mixed media, collage & art journals, any papercrafts.

Each box is an assortment of paper, ephemera, embellishments, stickers, fibers, ribbons, trims, vintage greeting cards, playing cards, tickets, tags, book pages, fabric pieces, vintage advertising & much much more wonderful stuff. 

If you'd like to take a chance & see what fun new-to-you things are in these boxes, please email me privately with your name and snail mail address.  Paypal is the easiest option for payment, but if you'd prefer to send a check, we can work that out.  At this time, this price is only for US mailing addresses since it's Priority Flat Rate postage. 

We are a non-smoking household, although we do have a sweet kitty.  I try my best to keep her hair off of my supplies, but she loves to rub on boxes & check things out, so if you're severely allergic to cats, this may not be the treasure for you.

Thanks for reading this no pix post...I'm heading out to work on packing up a few more boxes.


  1. Ohhhhhhh....knowing you and the art you make I bet these boxes are full of COOL stuff!

  2. What a great way to share your treasures!

    Folks, I can assure you from experience, this girl can pack a box like nobody's business! :)

  3. Just wanted to come over from 521 Lake Street and say you gave some awesome swap gifts!!I was in the same swap.
    Your box of goodies sounds fun...maybe another time.
