inspiration monday



now that my little dutch sweetie and i have made the decision to move up to the mountains,  i'm busy getting our house ready for sale.  that means lots of cleaning (ugh!) and lots of cleaning out.....mainly in my studio!  i'll be moving from a studio-carriage-house over our garage, to a small corner loft area in a condo, and i definitely don't have room for all these extra supplies!  i'm downsizing in a major way,  and since i can't think of anything more inspiring than new art goodies,  i'd love to share some of my supply stash with you!  

so.....how about a little "inspiration collaboration"?

i have several "inspiration boxes" packed with a variety of barely used supplies (most of it is brand new!) that i'd like to donate to anyone who can use them.  
the "collaboration" part is i'm asking the recipient of each box to pay the shipping cost. 

 i have created a video for each box that shows what's inside.  i've used the "flat rate" boxes from the post office,  and they hold quite a lot!  if you're interested in one of these boxes,  and don't mind paying the shipping fee,  please leave a comment telling me which one.....and
please make sure it links back to your blog or e-mail address so i can contact you!  

i will leave the comments open until wednesday night 10:00 p.m. EST, april 24th,  and let the random integer select the recipients.   once the names have been chosen,  i'll contact you to let you know that i'll be e-mailing you a paypal invoice for the shipping costs.
(this "inspiration collaboration" is open to those over the age of 18)

below are the videos for the first three boxes.....i'll be offering two more boxes on thursday!
(and i'm so sorry for saying "um" so much in these videos.....such a crazy habit!)




inspiration box #1
password: polymer

                       




inspiration box #2
password:  funstuff

                       




inspiration box #3

wishing you a great week filled with inspiration!  :))

I would love to have either box #2 or #3. What a great idea and generous way to "down size!"

I would love to get any of them. I am working as an art therapist and don't have the funds to keep up a continuous supply. I did not watch any of the videos, but rather, would very gratefully cover shipping for any of the boxes. My clients and I will have fun opening the box together in group and deciding how we can use the surprises inside!

Beedeebabee said...

What a great idea, Lori, and what great goodies too!

"The mountains"...gosh, that sounds so wonderful!!! Bet you can't wait to get there! xoxo

Mallrat said...

I'm open to any of them and don't mind paying shipping .. that is so generous of you ! Thanks

Wishing you every happiness in your move to the mountains. Good luck to everyone who's applied for one of your boxes.

Sadly I live in the UK or I'd be right up front for any of them.

I am so looking forward to seeing what inspiration your new home brings - and I love and cherish all the stamps that I have bought from you - it thrills me every time I use and Elvie original

Fantástico! I love your work, I've tried to look for supplies in Spain but the Craft World here is very limited.
I'll be honor to have Inspiration box # 3 please! <3

Christine Baluk said...

You are soooo generous. I love your blog! I would love to receive either box #2 or 3. #3 is my first preference.

Kari said...

I loved loved box #3. What fun stuff you have!

daisydilly (vicki) said...

Well too late for me I guess but have fun with all that moving!!

Createology said...

Lori Dear you are such a kind and generous soul to give your art supplies to anyone. I do understand the downsizing and moving as I will face that one day. I adore your boxes of goodies and think I should be doing the very same thing with all I am fortunate to have...one day when I downsize. Good think chocolate is consumable and you don't have to eliminate packing it. Spring Sunshine Smiles Dear Lady...

Thanks so much for your generosity at the chance of getting some of your goodies at the cost of only shipping! I would love to be counted in your draw for box #2 or #3. How exciting to be moving up to the mountains. I'm sure it will be full of inspiration and I can't wait to see all the new art u create from that inspiration! - Kathryn (katt7676@hotmail.com)

karenelr said...

I would love box #3 first and then box #2 for a second choice! Thanks for offering these up for only the cost of postage!

A Polymer Penchant said...

What fun! Thank you for including Canadians :) I would love to have #2 as a first choice, or #3. Hope you had fun organizing all your favs for the journey

Angie said...

Wow, you are so generous! If shipping to Canada wasn't so pricey, I'd be right in line for box 2 or 3. Good luck to everyone!

Kate said...

I would love box #2

forcryeye said...

#2 or #3 would be mahvelous!

Anonymous said...

Thank you for your generosity!

Alright I will try my luck! (although I have mixed feelings, since international shipping is so expensive...on the other hand, it is a great deal!)

So i would like to have box 3

angela said...

Only someone with a big heart like yours would think to do something like this! :) Thank you so much! I want box #2 please.
Thank you again!
Have a great week and happy packing to you!

MyLittleBlueDog said...

Well you are most kind and generous. Sadly none of your beautiful stamps in the boxes. I would love a chance to get either box two or three, although I do feel a bit guilty especially when I had a quick look at the comments and saw that one lady worked as an art therapist and is low on funds. I would be most happy to miss out to her. Good luck on the move, we are still for sale after almost two years.

Savings in Sandusky said...

Would love to win box 2 or 3 as well! How awesome of you to pass along such fun stuff!

Dawn said...

Lori - This is Grandma Nancy Sapp. I had to chuckle when U said that U hadn't used the apron! Darn it! I'd LOVE to have something you've worn but since that isn't the case - I'd be happy to pay shipping on funstuff #2 or art goodies #3.
I use your stamps often on my cards too!
Good luck on your move!
Thanks,
Nancy

Hallo Lori,
Wat ontzettend lief van je dat je al die mooie spullen weggeeft!

Heel veel sucses met je verhuizing en alvast veel plezier op je nieuwe stekje in de bergen!
