  3. The very best thing I have found spring cleaning is more ROOM to move around. I have tossed a bunch of junk away, and its so easy to take care of now.

  5. Hi Anita! Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment! Glad to see you are back in action! I think I have to say about spring cleaning is that I also have been able to find more room space to do things. I just hope I don't fill up that space again! LOL Thanks for a chance to win! Already a follower!
    I will definitely add a link to it at the right sidebar of my blog.

  12. I think the best thing I ever found spring cleaning, was an envelope of pictures that I had misplaced (tucked in a book for goodness sakes)that were of my girls when they were little. They were irreplaceable, and I had very sadly reconciled myself to never seeing them again.

  19. Thanks for the chance to win. I am following you now. I need to do some spring cleaning now and see what I can find, lol. But, a couple of years ago, while cleaning out closets I found a $50 bill in my hubby's suit pocket. That was a great find. :)

  20. I'm so glad you had fun in Denver. I love it there such great weather during this time of year. So spring cleaning eh. I'm a flybaby so I've been flinging all month. In our linen closet I found 6 YES 6 crib sheet sets. This is so bad on many levels the worst one being I havent had a baby in a crib in over 3 and a half years. YEAH and two some of them were brand new eck. So a local charity was blessed with our linens ;) I hope you had fun cleaning.

  21. Hi Anita,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm your newest follower. It's seems like I'm always cleaning and moving things from room to room. The best thing I've ever found cleaning was my car title. I thought I had lost it in a move (actually two) and there it was right where I knew it was. I guess I overlooked a million times.

    I'll post your giveaway on my blog too.

  22. I've been looking around for some new inspiration and came across your blog from another blog, but can't remember which one (sorry) Cute blog you have and just became a follower, I would love for you to stop my blog when you have a free moment. What a great giveaway this is, I've been eyeing this cart but been on a buying ban. I have to much I've been hoarding (giggle) but I've also been doing some spring cleaning and finally found the bracket to my video camera that my Dear Hubby moved from where I knew it "should" have been, and he put it in a place that had no rhyme or reason to it, He's not allowed to touch it now, LOL! Thanks for the chance.

  23. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog - and the invitation to your giveaway. I've just become a follower.
    The best item I ever found while spring cleaning was a book of notes, written by my students just before I left teaching. Another teacher had had each student write me a personal message and/or draw a picture as a memento of our year together. While I was going through things during a spring cleaning, I came across the notebook. The timing was perfect as I had just suffered a significant loss in my life and needed something to bring me cheer.

  24. Spring cleaning?? ummm.. not so much yet.. LOL. But, I'll get there.. maybe for fall cleaning?? lol. However, when I do clean.. I really and truly would like to find a craft project I started along with a cuttlebug plate that I put "away for now" and cannot seem to find where "away" is.. lol. so maybe that's my spring cleaning challenge.. lol. Anyway, nice to stop in, nice blog.. i followed you over here from Jeans Crafty Corner.

I also found the old fashioned cassette box that us SBers are now using to house ink pads when I went to Salvation Army to drop off some clothes and shoes that I was not wearing...So I did find something....just not in my house....(hehe...) ....and I was totally elated because I had been looking for one of these for quite some time.....Well, thanks for the chance to win this wonderful cart.....One that I do not yet have.....Yay....

  38. Welcome Back! Sure wish I knew how you got this blog to glitter like this. And purple on top of it. It's our favorite! Well, we always do spring cleaning, but our favorite product to clean with is by far the roomba. We have used them for years now. They automatically start while we are at work and when we get home, the floors are spotless! They are just wonderful! We actually have three now... one to do carpet and two to do hard floors (don't have much carpet). All you have to do is clean them out when you get home. As far as spring cleaning goes, our steamer is our best friend. No chemicals and it's fantastic on drapes and furniture. Just keep it away from your craft room. Humidity and and expensive paper collection just don't go that well together. Hee! Hee!

  39. Welcome back and thanks for visiting me today! The best item I found is my CM mini circle pattern. I thought I had lost at a retreat but recently found it. Now I "lost" my Home Decor cart. Bleh! :)

  40. The truth is I don't have a craft room, just a small corner area to place my stuff. So every new holiday or season I clean up and take out a new batch of stuff and I always find something. This time it was some ribbon I forgot I had. My blog is loving scrapper 101.

  41. I have been doing a little Spring cleaning since I lost my job a couple of weeks ago. The best thing I just found was some VCR tapes that we had recorded when our boys were young. My dad and FIL passed away in 2008 and these tapes had them on it too. It was wonderful to be able to see them on those tapes playing with the boys. My dad always loved the grandkids and on this tape, he was riding a bike with my youngest and the memories made me smile and cry at the same time!

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!

I did find my Action Wobbles that I thought I lost, so that was good. Now I want to make a project and use them. Thanks for the chance to win the cartridge and thanks for visiting my blog Anita:)

  58. Great blog candy. I have not started spring cleaning this year, but in past cleaning I have found money in various pieces of clothing as I go through the pockets before sending them to the dry cleaners. My best spring cleaning tool is my micro fiber glass cleaners I got off QVC. Love those cloths! I am a follower.

  63. This will probably sounds silly, but the best thing I've ever found while spring cleaning was empty space! After 32 years of marriage and 2 children, we moved into the house my husband grew up in. It's a great house, but it came completely equipped. I've had at least 2 of everything, and since my in-laws had lived in this house more than 50 years, there was way more stuff in attics and closets than I could possible describe. Empty space so that I could unpack MY things was wonderful! I loved reading other people's comments about what they have found. It's amazing, isn't it?

This past summer my parents, my brother and my husband and I all moved so I guess they might have ended up here by mistake but I haven't lived in the same house as him for at least 4 years :P

  66. Spring cleaning...uuggghhh. We always say it is a necessary evil! lol I started this year with my craft room because it was out of control. I was spending and not creating (out of control). I found tons of duplicate items (of course if I bought it once, why wouldn't I like it again! lol) and gave most all of it away to a friend who has just recently started crafting! It was a win win situation! Love your site!

  67. Hi Anita, I love your work and have now become a follower! Yippeee! I must tell you, I have a lifelong disorder that has no cure as of yet and I'd have to say that this years spring cleaning has allowed me to find an inner-peace and an inner-strength I know longer thought I possessed. There's been so much going on within my family and within my body already this year, I just feel like giving up most days. So I'd have to say inner-peace and inner-strength are the best things I've found while spring cleaning this year. Thanks for this opportunity! I'll come back as often as I can!

  70. I just purchased my cricut a couple of months ago and I absolutely love it. I have scrapped for awhile so the cricut just adds to all the fun. I find it hard to walk away when I start scrapping. But I know there are things that need to be done so I prioritize to get them done and still have time to scrap with my cricut. I've just started my spring cleaning and was surprised to find a box of scrapbooking supplies in my closet! Needless to say I was so excited I just had to set down and go through them to see all the goodies I had stored. I would love to have the spring cartridge!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Awesome giveaway! And I love your glittery blog! How pretty! I too have not done spring cleaning yet...and so far...don't have anything missing I have been trying to find...now probably what I will discover from that is things I should be using! That is just sitting collecting dust! YIKES! Now a follower! Thanks for the chance to win!

  79. Not Spring cleaning but the most important thing I've found was my diamond out of my wedding ring. Thought I lost it at a doctor's office. Opened a chest a few months after losing it to grab a handbag and it fell out onto the floor. Don't think I was cleaning then, either. But, would love to win the cartridge.
