Recycling candy


Hello again peeps, I'm back as promised.

Now this is not strictly candy, more of a redistribution of an excess of crafty goodies. The benefits of working for different craft outlets/companies over many years is that you get an awful lot of products to work with, but when those companies cease trading or change direction and don't want the items back, you are left with more goodies than you could ever use. Then there are those items you just 'had' to buy but never use...........we are all guilty of that one I know.

So last weekend I had a long overdue clear out of my craft room and the spare bedrooms I was spilling into and decided I had be be firm with myself and put to one side all those items I knew I would not use and those of which I had duplicates.

The above picture represents just some of those items and I would love to give them away to anyone who does not mind receiving stamps that have been inked one or twice or part sets of stamps, part used reels of ribbon along with other items some of which may not be brand new. I realise some peeps won't like the idea of receiving 'second hand' goodies and I quite understand, but if you know of someone who would benefit, then please let them know.

I figure the fairest way to deal with this is to pick one recipient from each 100 entries as they come in and share the goodies between those names and announce all on 23rd October.......but please do not enter more than once just to up the numbers, only your first entry will count. Here's what you need to do.....................

1) Be a follower...............one that stays, not just a candy hunter.

2) Post the above picture on your sidebar with a link back here to help spread the word.

3) Leave your name with Mr Linky below.

Closing time is midnight on 22nd October. Please note, although I will post anywhere, delivery to some parts of the world are subject to Customs regulations and local postal services over which I have no control.

Thanks so much for the wonderful inspirational blog. I am also a disabled crafter, housebound much of the time as I have lots of health problems. Leaves me with lots of time to craft when the children are at school, not at home pinching my crafty stash. Thanks for the great idea of recycled blog candy too! I love to re-use and I adore the idea of surprise candy! Take care x
