Spring Cleaning / Nesting GIVEAWAY - Open until mid-June - International Crafters Welcome

Good evening everyone!
May is one of my favorite months. 
Things come alive again and all around, the world
is bursting with new promise.  We all know instinctively, I think, that in spring
it is time to de-clutter our winter dens and throw open the windows,
ready for new adventures.
My newest adventure will make his dramatic debut in a couple of months,
but until then I'm happily right in harmony with the birds--
So of course, where does my spring cleaning always take me?
Oh yes, around the house and usually to the fabric stash too--
but particularly this year I'm having a major cleanout of the craft boxes and drawers.
Things I haven't used in a long time, things I bought too many of on sale, things I just
think someone else will be able to enjoy more than I can.
Some are brand-new, some are pre-loved.
All are packaged up and ready to go out to bring some smiles and crafty fun
 one of my readers and followers.
So, what do you need to do to enter?
Well, I tried to set up Rafflecopter for convenience sake, but it's being a pain at the moment--
so we'll just do it the old-fashioned way. 

After you add your link via the INLINKZ above,
here are some optional extras:
1. Leave me a comment and let me know:
*What is your favorite crafting style?  Shabby chic, freestyle collage, classy, vintage, CAS?
*What would you like to see more of on KTC -- card inspiration, free digital sketches, the return of the Treetop Monthly challenge?  I've been gone for awhile and have missed all of it, but I'd like to know what YOU would most enjoy!
*Whether you're a follower.
2.  Become a follower to receive updates, etc.  Then let me know that in your comment also.
3. Let your friends know through your preferred media platform and link them back here to me,
*Follow my Pinterest pages or profile for more fun inspiration on a regular basis.
*Hop over to my Gardening and Quilting blog, Gardener's Thread, for a peek around.
While you're there, leave a comment to enter for my Tula Pink Book Giveaway!  Double score for everyone! :)
This Giveaway will run until June 12th at least;
longer if delivery doesn't sneak up on me early!
International crafters are welcome as usual.
Thanks for dropping by, good luck to all, and
Be well and enjoy the sunshine,

    2. Hi Iruha, I tried to add your inlinkz entry for you but it won't take it from me. Would you mind entering it again? :)

  2. Oh, what lovely goodies, Kathryn! Reminds me that I must dig into my own spring cleaning, or at least re-organizing in the craft room. When it comes to cards, my great passion, I love both CAS and Vintage. For fabrics and sewing, I dearly love simple, uncomplicated patterns, especially for blouses and home decor. Would love to see a few more cards for inspiration.

    1. Hi Connie--I finally got the InkLinkz linkup to work so I'll go ahead and add your link for you. Cheers for a happy weekend!

    2. It won't accept your link from me, I'm afraid. Would you mind entering it again? :)

  3. What gorgeous goodies - incredibly generous. My style - well, it's a bit of everything really. Most of the cards I make go to charities to be sold, so I try to make something for every taste. I'm not very good at pretty or cute though.
    Can't really say what I'd like to see more of yet, as I only discovered your wonderful blog through your Twofers entry today. I don't think I've visited before.
