29 GIFTS CHALLENGE

I have been inspired by the 29 Gifts Challenge web site
http://www.29gifts.org/index.html
as well as others who have taken up the challenge to also participate in this.
It looks like we will be moving house within the next month, so I have started decluttering and sorting through my mountains of craft stuffs !! There are a lot of craft supplies that I know in my heart I will not get to use even if I live to be 100 !! so its time to gift them to other like minded crafts people who I know will appreciate them.
This how it will work -
Make a comment on this post on my blog .
You will also need to email me your name and addy to
dougandwendyp@xtra.co.nz
with 29 GIFTS in subject line.
THIS IS OPEN TO EVERYONE WORLDWIDE - but due to postage costs - those living outside of New Zealand will get smaller and flatter envelopes full of craft supplies than those living within NZ
Each day from 5 April I will randomly pick one comment from this blog post and mail out an envelope of craft goodies to that person.
All I ask in return is an email or comment on my blog when you receive it.
My craft interests are varied so the supplies are varied too !!

I hope you will all think this is a fun thing to participate in too !
So what are you waiting for - leave a comment and email me with your address details NOW !!!

Wendy so cool what you are doing - hope the move goes well. Now if I were to be fortunate enough to win I would ask you to send to a friend of mine who lives in NZ, emigrated there with her Kiwi hubby

moving/packing is good..it always gives me a chance to visit the buried goodies at the bottom of my piles, and re-unite them with their brothers and sisters who are properly put away! ;)!

I love your playlist -- especially _Because We Believe_, _Jesus Take the Wheel_ and _Broken Wing_! I love everything by Martina McBride, and I tremendously admire her as a person. Thank you for your generous offer and for your excellent taste in music!

Hey Wendy-
What a great way to downsize and "give back" or "pay it forward" at the same time! Hope your move goes well and can't wait to win!
