1. Stamps
2. Cuttlebug
3. Embossing Folders
4. Dies
5. Ribbon
6. Punches
7. Rhinestones
8. Stickles
9. Score board
10. Twinkling H2O's

This is more of how often supplies get used. I've NEVER used my H2O's but would like to some day. There's very little or anything that's going to the trash! I've purged once and really use most all I have.

FUN THREAD!

Barbara!! I can't even think about it right now... I'm too overwhelmed that you want to trash your Prismacolor pencils! I have been using mine a LOT lately and LOVE them so much. Wisconsin's not that far - I need to come over and change your mind .

I'm with you on embossing folders and ribbon... I'm selling off most of mine.

I'll give this some thought - it's a very interesting question but I'm not sure I can get from LOVE to Trash in 10 steps!

I read this question this morning, and I've been mulling it over all day. I STILL can't decide what to put where! I just know that there are certain things that I use EVERY TIME - guillotine cutter, ATG, foam tape, usually either a punch or die or embossing folder (or all of the above), so there's that...

I canNOT for the life of me figure out how to get happy with dimensional flowers - be they paper, ribbon, or any other type! They look beautiful on everyone else's cards, but I don't have the card-gardener gene, apparently. I've already passed nearly all of those along. I also have a bizillion and six alphabet stickers that will never see the light of day.

I have to tell you, this was a great thread for making me consider what I own and what I use! Some of the things I've never used or seldom used or not used recently may have to come out to play soon! Thanks for provoking some thought there!

2. embossing folders
3. ink pads
4. stamps
5. embossing powders and gun
6. dies
7. watercolor wonder crayons (like the look, but I always water color with stamp pads.)
8. crop-o-dile big bite (NEVER use that thing)
9. eyelets (those things are like zucchuini at the end of summer, nobody wants them!)
10. The SU! tearing edge. Really? What was I thinking?

Wouldn't be caught dead throwing these out:
1. Stamps
2. Card stock
3. Designer Paper
4. Cuttlebug
5. Cricut/ cartidges
6. Embossing folders
7. Buttons
8. Ribbon
9. Rhinestones
10. Brads
Forgot Ink Pads but that would go up there after the card stock/DP.

Didn't make the list but not throwing out yet:
Dies - still use them somewhat but not as much since I got my Cricut.
Eyelets - don't use 'em much.

Ms. Roxane! School is off to a great start this year. I love being back! Awesome kids and fun plans for my classes this year! I'm at a speech conference this weekend and will need to see you for some books that everyone has been raving about.
