A few weeks ago, I read Lydia's, Understand Blue blog, where she wrote about her major de-stashing project in her craft room.

I told her it made me cry a little.

But one of the things she mentioned that resonated, was that she had been holding on all that stuff over guilt.

That stuck with me.  I've always KNOWN that I have stuff I should get rid of, because I'm just not using anymore, or just have no interest in using at all.  I've been pondering that guilt and the prospect of a purge ever since.

I've been a Papertrey Ink addict since early 2008.   ADDICT.  I loved their stamps, their blogs...  and I'd get sucked in every. stinkin. time!   I'm always known what I like to create...  there are certain styles that I just don't enjoy doing.  But that's not to say I don't love the results when other people do them.

So each month, I would buy something that deep down I "knew" wasn't really my thing, because I loved what someone else had done with it.   And, I hoped that if I only had "THAT THING", that perfect thing...  surely I would become good at "shabby-chic", grunge, mix and match-y die cutting, using felt... insert whatever style here.  And of course I also expected that the ambition and talent to do those things would come certainly come in the the mail, too.

But it didn't.  But I kept all these things anyway.  For later.  Just in case.  Maybe I would try it again, right?


So welcome to my de-stash.  It's time.  MORE than time.   I am freeing myself from guilt and freeing up some valuable real estate in my bins and on my desk for the things I do love to use.

So here's the list:  A ton of Papertrey Ink, and a few random things at the end.

You can click on the stamp set title to see the Papertrey Ink site images.  If you'd like to see the condition of my particular set that you might be interested in, email me, and I can send you a pic.  I'd really prefer to ship only in the US, but I will consider international, but I will have to charge actual shipping...  which is ridiculously expensive.

You can reach me by Facebook Messenger (search Chris Dayton - my profile pic has a gray/white cat) or email me:

I'll do my very best to respond to emails and messages in the order of arrival.  If you are wishing to purchase, please give me your list and email address in the message, and I'll invoice you through Paypal.  Prices are below, plus shipping charge of $2.75 for the first item; add 75 cents for additional items.

Thanks for looking...  Maybe you can help me re-home some of these.  ;)
