Look what came for me in the mail

I got an e-mail a few weeks ago from Elmers glue asking if I wanted to participate in their crafters challenge project. It said something about doing a craft and a donation to a charity and a giveaway and I was reading the e-mail quickly while holding a crying baby and thought it was nothing that I would have time for and basically ignored it. Then I got another e-mail from them asking again if I was interested in participating in their craft challenge and if so to please send them my address so they could send me my free crafters excuse me did they say FREE!!! HELLO. I whipped out an e-mail as fast as I could type back saying that I use Elmers glue all the time and would love a free crafters kit. I re-read the original e-mail which stated that they wanted bloggers to participate in the challenge and post their projects on their blogs and the winning blogger would have a $1000.00 donation made to a charity of their choice and Elmers would send each blogger a craft kit to use to make their project plus send 3 prize packs to the bloggers readers as giveaways. So low and behold I finally got my box in the mail. I was expecting a couple of glue sticks and some tape. (they said they had launched a new line of crafting products that will be in Walmart stores everywhere). Instead I got this:
and inside it was all of this:
and this:
for me to use to make a craft project by Oct 8th. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. I mean there are bloggers out there that get free samples all the time but this has never happened to me before. The excitement from this will last until Christmas I am sure. So I am milling over a million craft ideas in my head trying to decide just what I want to use all this fun stuff on. Did I mention I got a circle cutter. I have wanted one for like 7 years. Anyway I can't start on the project yet because of this:
and this:
the aftermath of Melon Days. It is war zone in my craft room right now so I have some major cleaning to do before I can start using all my fun stuff. So stay tuned for the craft project and the giveaways from Elmers. I have always loved glue and tape and I think I love it even more now.

  1. Wow. How fun and exciting. I can't wait to see what you come up with to make from all those goodies.

  2. We’re so glad you liked the kit, and we can’t wait to see your craft! If you’re looking for inspiration, here’s a link to our project gallery:

  3. Ha ha! Your craft room looks like mine! I've been in the process of cleaning it up after Melon Days too--wish I would have taken a picture of how bad it was before. LOL Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't clean as they go.

  4. I'm beyond jealous of the box from Elmer's. It looks like a blast.
