I mailed my PIF kits today!!!

Also, as the due date approaches and if anyone is interested, I can bundle up the last 3 kits to one big kit, that would be what is left of the stamps, the sticky stax letters, the birthday paper assortment and a monogram letter stamp.

I figured it might take us all a little bit of time to figure out what we, as hoarders, might be able to release back into the wild for someone else to enjoy! And I also wanted to give us all some time to peruse the goodies and claim kits! Nice to see so many fun kits! I love it!

Anne, this has been SUCH a fantastic challenge!! Every time I saw my kits 1-3 items in my stash I felt guilty for impulse buying and not appreciating presents, and now they've GONE, and to appreciative homes! As if that's not good enough, I get a bunch of cool stuff that I DO want!

I have 2 "points" left - I'm waiting to see if we have any more last-minute players, and then I plan to swoop in on a couple of kits I've had my eye on all week. Oh, no, I just gave my game plan away!

Thank you, Anne, for such a fun, cathartic challenge!

I would like to extend a great big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in my SOF12 Hoarder's Pay It Forward Challenge!

The challenge is officially over. It is up to those who still have kits left to decide whether they will still accept trades.

If you still have a kit available, here are some ideas about how you can use them:
Does anyone have any other ideas about how to use a kit?

Thanks Anne for this great list of charities!!! I appreciate your compiling them.

The Children's hospitals may not only take cards (which they will give to families and children on birthdays and holidays such as Mother's and Father's days) but they may take scrapbooking materials for their Child Life Department for the kids to use while they are hospitalized.

Thanks to all who played! I will be donating my leftovers to our local center for non-violent living. Their work includes an art therapy program. Thanks Anne for a great challenge and providing the list of options to consider for our leftovers.

Thanks for the info on the children's hospitals, Heidi. I'll have to see if they do that here.

Thanks, Anne, and everyone who took part! I'll be excitedly checking my mail box from the end of this week!

@ Kathy (SWLady) - Just because this challenge is over, doesn't mean you can't arrange your own swaps or trades! It is possible some people couldn't participate during the final week because they were busy making preparations for Sandy...

Christinmay! I received my PIF kit today! Thanks so much, I love it all. I did not realize the stamped images were big, I thought they would be small. I LOVE the house one! What a neat surprise!

I received two packages today! A chipboard kit (plus my RAK stamp) from Anne, and a paper/stamp/buttons pack from Michele.

Thank you so much, ladies! I am so looking forward to playing with them!

Hi all!

I received my card bases from ChristinMay this week. They are awesome! I don't think I will get to use them til after Thanksgiving though.
I am so stressing over the daughter in law coming, hehehe
I did send yours Christin, but not until the beginning of this week. Hopefully you will get it soon!

I got such a cool surprise in the mail today - DOZENS of stamps from Far North (Jan). I was expecting maybe 5 or 6, and I was blown away by how many cool little images there were - flowers, dragonflies, butterflies, bees etc. etc.

Thank you so much, Jan!!!!!

My stamp stash has pretty much tripled in the last month - no joke! Nice not to have to keep using the same ones over and over.

Well, I'm off to ink up!

I received my final kit today - brads and eyelets from Kathy. Plus some pretty hand-quilled note cards and a few stickers, as a bonus!

Thank you so much, Kathy!!
