Me....just about everything....so I have almost completed a weeding out and am giving away at the art gathering: tissue paper in all sorts of colors and designs, construction paper ditto, wallpaper samples, paint chips, jewelry to be taken apart and salvaged and jewelry that is wearable now, about 200 marking pens (WASHABLE KIND), miles of ribbon and lace, a huge space bag full of material and scraps, 14 scarves (for the material or for other use), iron-on patches, colored film, jewelry findings, baskets, tins, greeting cards to cut up for paper or for cutting out pieces for collages, about 100 stickers, ten pieces of plaster ware to be painted, an extra pallette, assorted toys, tiny shells, mica chips, a huge tin of beads, a bunch of watches (non-working but great for collage parts), various sized small plastic zip locks, ATC card covers, silk flowers, t.v. bricks (brown painted brick sized sponges), scoops, sparkles, card blanks, metallic papers, origami papers and a lot more.

I've filled one basket, three boxes, two Rubbermaid containers, one giant sized space bag and a black plastic yard bag with my giveaways.

Wish I had more time because there is soooo much to go through! I try to sort an area a day and not only am I consolidating things and sorting my own stocks, but I'll be able to donate to others who need what I have been just keeping stuffed in a drawer or file cabinet! Feelin' good about that!

Anything left I will donate to the local elementary for their art program......and I will actually have some extra space!

So, what's piled up on you and do you have plans to donate it to anyone or cause????

LOL!  Yarn.  I have entirely too much yarn, but I have no plans to get rid of any of it because I have specific projects in mind for all of it!  I just need to sit down and make them.

I'm up to 9 containers of stuff to give away! I'm so proud of me for being able to let go of so much of the stash!
