Hi everyone!  I am a little late at posting today–

First, I wanted to share the winner of the Awesome Peachy Keen Frankly Set! 🙂

PK-634 Frankly...

Traci McPeek who said

Oh…your cards are just adorable. I LOVE LOVE LOVE PK stamps (I don’t have to go to their website to see which one I like best cuz I’m on their site every day!!!). You are giving away my favorite – “Frankly”…Would LOVE to win it!

Thank you to Peachy Keen for donating this set –if you didn’t win go check them out–they are so AMAZING!

Congratulations Traci!  Send me your address to sarah@pinkcricut.com

Next– yesterday I got a HUGE package in the mail–something I won!

A month or so ago, I won a cutting mat from Obsessed with Scrapbooking, from the Original Scrapbox.

From there, I was entered into the final drawing to win the actual Workbox from The Original Scrapbox— at Rachelle Writes.

Well, I  won, and the sweet people at The Original Scrapbox built it and then sent it to me! So, this humongous box, that weighed almost 600 lbs sat in my front yard–til my husband came home last night!

Then with some neighborly help, we managed to get it into the house-in 3 parts.  The doors just needed hinged on! Thankfully! (Big thanks to Brian and Kristi)

Then as I was cleaning up the packaging remnants from the front yard–I turned to look at my husband– (dreamily…. lol…no, he was talking to me about something) At that moment, my jeans got caught on a nail in a board.  But, not just one jean leg–both jean legs.  😕

So, it was like I was tied up at the ankles–and since I had been trying to turn–and couldn’t because I was caught– I fell– TIMBER! stye, face first into our cement porch….face first.   As I stood up, I was sure I would have knocked out a tooth–because I hit full force on my chin/jaw.  But, luckily there were no missing teeth!

I do however have  a very swollen jaw–sore mouth, neck, shoulders and face.  Oh, and I have some nice road rash on my face :).  It’s almost like scrapbooking has become and extreme sport for me! LOL

It’s okay–you can laugh– I am at the point..where it is funny now 😉

Anyway– I finally felt up to putting in the shelves late last night-and had the help of my good friend, Lindsay.  There were a LOT of shelves!! And  I began filling them last night and today– so here is my video of the event!  Sorry, there is no footage of my fall 🙂

  1. Sarah, while I was reading about your fall, I kept making all sorts of horror faces… but the I got to the part where you say:” Sorry, there’s no footage of my fall” and then, I cracked up !!!! hahahah I am still laughing 😀 you are too funny! Martha C.

  2. AWESOME! Hope you are feeling better! I want to see your “Binde”!! The video stopped! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. YIKES!! Extreme Scrapping indeed, Sarah. Glad you’ll be okay–but I imagine you’ll be sore for the next couple days.

    Enjoy your new ‘toy’…and you DO realize, you’ll be rearranging things over and over until it’s JUST right?! I’ve been doing that with my Ikea furniture that I got for my scrap room. JUST when I think I have it the way I want it, I have to change things around AGAIN!
    A Label maker helps with finding things, BTW! 😉

  4. OMG, I hope you are feeling better, maybe you should go to the doctors/dentist and get checked out to make sure there is no damage done internally….. PLs Let us know.

    Great storage unit, looks amazing, you are very lucky!!!

    Take care

  5. OMG…that cabinet is fantastic! I have wanted one for a long time…someday I may have my own! Enjoy it! So sorry to hear about your fall…not fun!!!! Oh the perils of scrapping hey? Hope you heal quickly!

  6. congratulations. I have wanted one of those for so long. Enjoy it. Also I just wanted to mention.. I don’t really know for sure about copic markers since I don’t have any but most of those kids of markers need to be left laying horizontal. I know my stampin ups do and also my M.S… Just wanted to make sure you knew if they did or not. God Bless

  7. Hope you’re feeling much better today! Heal soon! This is SOOOOO awesome! I was looking at getting one of these last year, but never did go through with it. Idea: You can put your ribbon in the pocket things on the side, and snip holes in there and feed your ribbon through it like that bag Katy got for her b-day. : ) Have fun with it. I know it’s going to be so much better for you with the limited space.

  8. Oh my gosh… I hope you are ok! That fall sounds horrible! (Did you take pictures tho.. you may want to scrap that moment! LOL!) The storage looks awesome… I really could use one of those, especially since my craft area is shared with my kids play area. 🙁

  9. I am so excited for you, it is truly amazing, it holds so much & you have space left. I guess this means you need to go on some hauls to get stuff LLL Sorry about your fall.

  10. Sorry about the fall….but so incredibly jealous of the workbox! congratulations! I hope you LOVE it and really enjoy it! I can’t wait to see all the exciting crafts you dream up and create at your workbox!

  11. HEY, what happened??? You were getting ready to show us your binder that you are proud of and the video stopped…. I really want to see the binder….. sniff sniff

  12. What a great new storage system. It looks GIGANTIC! 🙂 I hope you are feeling better from your fall. Sounds like something I would do! 🙂 Take care!

  13. First off, I am so sorry you took a nasty fall. That is horrible, i am glad to hear you didn’t lose any teeth. The part that you added about no video of your fall had me laughing so hard.
    I love the prize you won! What a fantastic thing it is. I wish they didn’t cost so much to ship to Canada or I would definitly look into one. Amazing how much that one box can hold. Enjoy your new toy and keep the wonderrful videos comeing!

  14. Sarah,

    I cannot believe you won!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂 Congratulations!!! What a lucky girl! Enjoy your new “room”! 😉

    Thanks for sharing & I hope your face is okay,

    Jennifer

  15. OH MY GOODNESS!! I want one of those soooooo bad! I was just telling my mom yesterday about the need to have a place for all of my craft items. I sew too, so I have two foyer closets full of my stuff and not to mention an outside cabinet with fabric and birthday suppplies (balloons, banners, gift wrap, boxes, streamers, etc.) and a china cabinet that stores my scrapbooking albums. Sorry about your fall! I had an idea for your ribbon also. You can hole punch those plastic bags that velcro to the door and thread your ribbon through. Or use your crop a dile. I am always using mine to make new holes in my blinds that kids knock down LOL. Thanks for sharing your video! Love it.

  16. OMG That thing is awesome! I want one, but I know my husband would FREAK out at the price LOL. You are so lucky to have won that!

  17. WOW, they look big on there website, but WOW you got so much stuff in there, thanks for sharing this with us,
    I am so glad that you are ok after your fall, no one said scrapbooking was painless LOL although it usually only hurts our hubbies wallets…. 🙂

  18. I thought about getting one of those too but went for other types of cabinets instead. It certainly looks like that holds way more more efficiently than the cabinets that I have. I am duely impressed. Congrats on the win! That is awesome!!! 🙂

  19. Love your Workbox!!! I know you will enjoy working out of it. So sorry about your fall. Glad you were not seriously injured.

  20. A storage area is something that I have been dreaming about for soo long! I try so hard to stay organized and I swear scrapbooking is such therapy!

  21. Your video was so fun to watch. Sorry about your Ouch! event, but glad you got it all put together. I just got a Workbox too and can’t wait to post about it. They are an amazing dream come true for crafters!

  22. WOW! This is the perfect storage unit for folks like me! Hello, my name is Lisa and I am a paperaholic. Haven’t found a 12 step program yet, but am trying:)

  23. God girl you should be so organized. I wish I had that kind of space to be able to find my supplies when I sit down to craft. Take me several minutes to find my supplies to be able to start to scrap. then forever to put it all away when I get done. More time to get stuff out and put away then the time I take crafting. You should be proud of your new Scrapbox. Your are the envy of most crafters. I will just keep dreaming that the craft fairy stops by some day. Thank you for sharing.

  24. Wow! What a great prize!!!! I can’t imagine having to wait all day to be able to get it in the house, and then be injured in the process! But I guess I’d feel like it was worth it…. maybe. Congrats on the win. Enjoy!
