Memorial Day and a GIVEAWAY!

Good morning, all!If you live in the United States, then you probably have a nice day off from work. I always take a moment to think on this day. I think about all the men and women who have sacrificed their lives to protect our country. I am so thankful for these people. I know that their job is not easy and I can only imagine what it must be like to be deployed away from your family and friends, fighting in a foreign country. I've been on the other side of the deployment and consider myself extremely lucky that I've never lost someone close.

Photo credit here.On a lighter note, I got the cleaning bug yesterday. It was kind of nice going through a lot of my stuff. I have a lot of "older" scrapping supplies that I adore, but that I never used (I've mentioned I'm a hoarder of good supplies), so my goal is to use more of those supplies. That being said, I also have tons of stuff I want to get rid of. So, if you're interested, please leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite "old" supply is. I'll announce a winner on Thursday. I do apologize, but right now this giveaway is only open to readers in the U.S. unless you are willing to pay for shipping.

My favorite old supply is a Making Memories ruler I have with a scalloped border. It's great for drawing straight lines, but then I can also trace the scalloped edge to make waves on my paper. It used to be my mom's but she gave it to me when I got into scrapbooking. Now that she's getting back into it, she wants the ruler back! lol

I hope you and Eric had a great Memorial Day weekend.I'm not going to throw my name into the hat for the giveaway because I'm doing some serious purging of my own (4 boxes so far to take to the children's hospital). Happy destashing! :)
