Hello there from the Mont Belvieu area! If anyone would be interested, I can set up a scrap in our church gym. We've done it in the past, but could not get the word out enough in our area. It would probably be of no cost to anyone and I've got 2 Cricuts I could bring so you don't have to bring one unless you want to and I even have give-aways left over from last year!
Hi, all, I'm not a scrapbooker but I have a huge problem and hope y'all can direct me. My sister-in-law, who lived south of Houston, passed away in December and was a scrapbooker...but she did more buying of the supplies than in actually doing the projects. She turned one of her guest rooms in to a scrapbooking room...with every available item pertaining to scrapbooking. A friend that scrapbooks went with me last week to take inventory of the room and was blown away by what all she had. According to my friend, she has not only the equipment but every accessory that comes with it. For example: she has two huge Crickets (??) but she also had all the accessories (boxes with little black boxes inside) that went with the machines. With the die machines she had all the die cutters that went with them. Paper? I had no idea they even made that much paper but both closets are filled with paper and 'embellishments'...whatever those are. She has the whole room lined with these cabinets and I looked in a scrapbooking magazine and saw those. They are made just for that purpose. She estimated that she probably spent (conservatively) around $50k!! Everything is completly organized and she said she was an organized horder because there's no way anyone could ever use all this stuff. It was all bought in the last 2 years. She even bought more organization supplies last July from the hospital and they are still in boxes! Sorry to go on and on but I wanted to give you a good picture of what she has but now the problem: what's the best way to get rid of this stuff? I have never done anything like this but my brother-in-law is totally lost and I told him I would do whatever I could to help him move these supplies out. I'm thinking our best hope would be to find a scrapbooker shop owner that could take it all because there's no way I even know what this stuff is much less what it's worth. Any suggestions you could throw my way would be much appreciated. Again...I'm sorry for the length but it's so sad to see all these things she had plans for and never got to use. Thanks in advance.
