Super secret stashbusting!

Yesterday I received one of those flat rate boxes in the mail. Well, I never even look when I get packages as to who they are from. I just open and see what I got.. lol :)  As I pulling the items out, I am thinking what is this stuff? It was really random things. Not things I normally craft with! I am expecting a package from a giveaway I won but it wouldn't be in this big box. And I don't remember giving anyone else my address. Hmm, so I stop pulling things out and look at the front. It's from DollarStoreCrafts.com. Still not ringing any bells with me. Lol. I finish pulling out all the random items and I find a paper at the bottom then I knew....!

It's from Heather at Dollarstorecrafts.com!! I forgot that I even applied. We filled out the application with our addresses and no one knew who was picked till it showed up at our doors. Fun huh!!!

I have been chosen randomly out of 600 applications as 1 of 10 people, to participate in a random crafting experiment for DollarStoreCrafts.com. She pulled random things from her stash and sent to us to create something with it. It's just supposed to be a  fun exercise in creativity!!

I will be making things from the items I received, plus we can add a bit from our own stash if we would like but we are not allowed to buy anything for the project/s!

So Stay Tuned!!!

Oh, Tanya, this sounds like so much fun! It's like a combination of paper crafting and putting puzzles together and I love both. And what's even better is the challenge of using supplies you wouldn't normally use, right? Don't know about you but I enjoy thinking outside the box sometimes. Evidently, you do too or you wouldn't have applied for this.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for the very sweet comment you left on my blog during the 28 Candles Blog Hop yesterday and for becoming a follower. I hope you never regret that decision. I have also following you now and I can't wait to see what you make out of the stuff from that box you received!

Happy crafting!
