in Giveaways


***This giveaway was originally scheduled to end Sunday at midnight, but it has been extended one extra day. You can enter to win The MiniBox through midnight tonight. Good luck!

I have been talking about this giveaway for weeks, and the anxiously awaited day has arrived!!! And, just like all other Vanilla Joy contests, you can earn extra entries which you are really going to want. This prize is a big one, so I’m happy to give you chances to increase your odds of winning. Like always, you earn the most points by blogging about the contest (15 points per post) and linking back to Vanilla Joy (10 points per link). Click here to learn all the ways to earn extra entries.

Now for the prize: The MiniBox by The Original Scrapbox

minibox craft supply storage organization

Yes, I’m totally serious about this. One lucky person will win this $800 ultimate craft storage desk called The MiniBox. This fabulous craft storage furniture piece is made by The Original Scrapbox, and it comes in vanilla, and black, bead board or raised panel. Isn’t it beautiful? You can watch a video on The Original Scrapbox website to see how it works.

If you’re a serious crafter, you are going to L.O.V.E. the MiniBox. You will wonder how you ever lived without it. You will put it on your list of your most prized possessions. And you will craft much more efficiently and therefore more. It’s like magic. And one of you is going to win this baby.

minibox craft supply storage organization

Here I am with mine in my little office – I try to give away only stuff that I have tried, tested, and loved, and I seriously love the Minibox. I can sit at my MiniBox and not have to get up from my chair a single time. Everything I could possibly need is within arm’s reach, and for the first time, every scrapbooking/crafting item I own has a home. I have arranged my paper by color, something I could never have done before, because now I have 14 -12×12 drawers. I have all my awkward sized tools tucked away so they’re not poking out everywhere. I have all my paper cutters, punches, Cricut cartridges, magazines, bookbinding tools, and CDs all neatly organized in their own individual drawers.

I find myself having more time to actually craft because I spend so much less time looking for things. It’s wonderful. A crafter’s wildest dream. I never realized how vital good organization was to my creativity and crafting! Things have certainly changed for me in this area since I got more organized than I’ve ever been in my life.

And all folded up, it’s a beautiful piece of furniture. I can see mine from our family room, and I love to just gaze into the room at my beautiful and functional desk. My MiniBox is probably my favorite thing in my whole house. I hope our basement never floods. I will die if it does.

We are going to do something different this time, so read carefully: I will randomly select 20 finalists for this giveaway. Those 20 people will be able to write a short paragraph telling me why they should win the MiniBox. So the winner this time is going to have to earn it! I thought that choosing 20 finalists would give more people a better chance. You still have to make a comment to enter, and in your comment please tell us why you should be the winner. And again, earn those extra entries.

Thank you to The Original Scrapbox, and GOOD LUCK one and all!!!

Wow. To win this amazing system would be a blessing! I love, love, love to be organized. I currently use my formal dining room as a scrapbook area and have to hide everything when we have company. This MiniBox would give me the freedom to tuck everything away neatly and not wonder; Where did I put that?! Maybe, just maybe I could actually catch up on my kids scrapbooks instead of wondering what was I doing before I had to put all of this away for dinner? Pick Me! I would be forever grateful!

2 Mindy September 15, 2008 at 8:15 am

This is probably the best prize I have ever seen on a blog giveaway! I need more organization in my life this would seem to help with my overwhelming scrapbook supplies for sure!

3 Katy September 15, 2008 at 8:22 am

My 2 daughters and I have been wanting this for several years! We craft and bond together. If you see my house, it will be obvious to you why we need this!

4 Dawna September 15, 2008 at 8:24 am

This is amazing. I love anything that helps me be better organized and I love that someone took the time to design and market this. Good luck to everyone!

5 Susan D. September 15, 2008 at 8:26 am

holy crow!! that’s some give away!! i need it because i am totally unorganized and don’t scrap as often because of it…and most of my baby’s pictures will probably NEVER see the light of day because of it…and i think i have taken some pretty good pics. my husband keeps threatening to just pull it all out in the yard and throw a match to it. ;0)

6 Karrin September 15, 2008 at 8:28 am

WOW! What an awesome giveaway! I’m redoing my craft area and this would be a great help.

7 Brandy September 15, 2008 at 8:32 am

I am so excited, that I can’t stand it!!! I LOVE to scrap, but I don’t do it very often because I am so disorganized. My house is tiny and there is just nowhere to put everything. I have everything in this super HEAVY tote and I hate dragging it out to work on it. I also have a shoe tote under the bed, so I have to wait for my husband to help me if I need anything out of that tote. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE pick me!!!!!

8 Keely September 15, 2008 at 8:35 am

What a great prize! About a year ago I was contemplating buying the bigger one of these boxes when they first came out. I was worried about the size of it and where it would fit in my house. I recently saw this smaller one in a magazine and I am really thinking about getting it. But if I win it, it would be even better!!!!

I’m headed straight to my blog to spread the word!

Thanks so much!

9 Jeri September 15, 2008 at 8:38 am

Holy cow I would be excited to organize the piles of scrapbook stuff that is filling my closet. Not as excited as Joe would be though…

10 rachel September 15, 2008 at 8:43 am

I’ve been waiting for this since you said you were going to have this contest….I’m so excited!!!

11 Susan Murphy September 15, 2008 at 8:47 am

Wow! This is a dream come true chance. Presently my scrapbook and card-making supplies are scattered between two kitchen drawers, a small desk in my upstairs bedroom, a 9-drawer rolling cart and two plastic totes. Ugh! I spend more time running back and forth trying to find everything and never seem to get as much done as I know I could if I was organized! With two little ones I have so many projects and albums that I’d love to create. With limited space, this Minibox is seriously the answer to my prayers. Thanks for a chance to win!

12 Kimberly R September 15, 2008 at 8:53 am

Oh my what an awsome little box. It is truly an all-in-one. It sure would clean up my scrapping area. Thanks for the amazing give-a-way opportunity.

13 Sandy September 15, 2008 at 8:55 am

Yeahhhh! I have been waiting for this!!! Thanks so much for doing this! Can you tell I am excited? I am using alot of exclamation points!!! LOL!

14 Jennifer September 15, 2008 at 8:59 am

I would love to win this organizer for the 14 – 12×12 drawers. I would be able to get my growing paper collection under control. 14 drawers really?? I would be in heaven. My “system” right now isn’t really working, who am I kidding what system??


15 Barbara H. September 15, 2008 at 9:00 am

Oh, this looks wonderful! Our home doesn’t have much storage space, and my craft supplies are all over. This would be perfect.

16 Jessica September 15, 2008 at 9:00 am

This would just be a perfectly wonderful addition to my craft area in the toy room…esp. since i could close it up and the two (about to be three!) little boys that play down there COULD NOT GET INTO MY THINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

17 syeda September 15, 2008 at 9:00 am

LIke you just said Kelsey, I have been waiting for this giveaway for weeks now. I want to thank you a million for giving such an awesome opportunity to win such a big giveaway. I liked what you said in your blog about this “Mini Box” that it makes everything within arm’s reach. That’s what I want. And if I am one the lucky finalists I would like to expand on that comment. This giveaway of “MIni Box” would solve many of my problems when it comes to organization and also creativity. I am just so thrilled and excited that I just can’t wait till you announce the semi finalist and the actual winner itself. Good luck to everyone and I am keeping my fingers crossed.

18 ColleenM September 15, 2008 at 9:04 am

WOW! What an incredible give away! Whoever wins will adore this forever.

19 Mandee Dover September 15, 2008 at 9:04 am

I love the Mini Box. I totally deserve it because all of my scrapbook stuff is shoved in my bedroom closet and in order to get to it, I have to pull out my shoes, excersising ball (that I never use!), hangers, get past the mess and then HARK, I have reached my scrapbook stuff. My husband is very patient with me because our closet is about 3.5 feet wide and 2 feet deep, VERY SMALL. I have stuff stuck all over the house and I LOVE to be organized. This would also make it so I wouldn’t be 4 years behind on scrapping because it would be so easy to access. I only have one child at home so my time has increased too.

20 Sheri September 15, 2008 at 9:06 am

I would love to win The MiniBox by The Original Scrapbox for the simple reason that my family would not have to trip over my stuff! Due to close quarters–there isn’t room for my “projects”. All my supplies are kept in boxes–yep–the ordinary cardboard kind. You can call it cheep or frugal–but either way, in my house I am considered the “box lady”! I try to keep the boxes stacked and neat, but they are still a problem. Winning this craft storage system would not only alleviate space issues and stubbed toes, but would also take me to the next level. Instead of “box lady”, I would become “MiniBox lady”–which to me and my family would be a HUGE improvement!

21 Jingle September 15, 2008 at 9:06 am

WOW! This is amazing! I would just be in awe if I won this incredible gift! I blogged about it right away and linked everyone back here to check it out! Thank you SO much!

22 AmyDe September 15, 2008 at 9:09 am

I am very excited at the chance to win this great product. Organization is a challenge for me in general – let alone with all the parts and pieces involved with scrapbooking/crafting. In the effort to downsize my “stuff” and upsize my enjoyment THIS organizational tool is ideal.

23 Rachel Olsen September 15, 2008 at 9:22 am

I love this giveaway! I’ll be excitedly anticipating the winner announcement!

24 Christie September 15, 2008 at 9:22 am

I looked into this the last time you posted about it. I drool every time I think about it. Thanks for the opportunity.

25 Vicki A September 15, 2008 at 9:27 am

WOW! That looks amazing, it would be awesome in my scrap space. Thank you for giving us the chance to win this.

26 Mariliese Horsewood September 15, 2008 at 9:28 am

Thanks for the opportunity to win this product. I do not have a scrapping room, and I need the space! I would really appreciate the chance to earn this thing of beauty. :-)

27 bethany September 15, 2008 at 9:34 am

You are so right about organization and crafting. I especially love the way it folds up closed so you can keep it’s contents safe and secure from little hands that would SO love to try everything out. Great product.

28 Sharon September 15, 2008 at 9:36 am

Wow! What a wonderful product and give-a-way! Thanks so much for holding this contest. I would love to get this. I could organize all my craft supplies and would be less stressed trying to find things….it would also enable me to craft with my 7 yr old in a more constructive and organized way. Thanks so much for the chance.

29 kimberlee September 15, 2008 at 9:37 am

I love your minibox!!! Man, I can see I need one! My creation station is the front room, so upon entering our home, you are greeted by a disaster area! I have problems putting everything away after I’m done because everything is scattered in the room. I do have to get up many times for different things when I’m crafting. And I use an old computer desk and pull out a section in it, but because of the side this section is on, I have to walk around it to get to my supplies. Such a pain!! My area is surrounded with totes, one for my papers, one of some tools, one to hold magazines, and one half unpacked from when I last went to a crop. It’s dangerous to step around all this just to sit down to be creative, which I tend to do. This unorganization is zapping my energy and creativity!! And it just doesn’t feel like “home.”
Thanks so much for the opportunity!

30 Tina September 15, 2008 at 9:38 am

Hi there, what a great giveaway. I would love to be the lucky recipient of this one. :-)
I need this to get myself organized and be able to have time to scrap. Right now, I have to go downstairs, collect what I want to work on, then take it upstairs to the dining room table to work on. With little ones, I just find that to be too much work, so I end up not doing anything at all. If I had this, I would keep it upstairs with supplies on hand and pull it out to work on whenever I get a chance. If it is all in one place and able to be hidden when I am not working on it, that would be AWESOME!!!!


31 Sallie September 15, 2008 at 9:40 am

This would be GREAT! We have so little room that I never get to bring my scrapping stuff out of the plastic tote that it stays shoved in. It’s not worth the hassle and time to get it all out and have to put it right back up. As a result, my 14 month old is only 4 months old in her scrapbook. It would be wonderful to spend an hour scrapping and have everything right there rather than taking 20 minutes to get things out, 20 minutes to scrap, and 20 minutes to put everything back up! (Oh, and that doesn’t allow any time to actually FIND what you need after you get it all out!)

32 Laura Bruynell September 15, 2008 at 9:48 am

What a great giveaway! I am writing not because I need this but would love for my daughter-in-law to have it. She has no storage that keeps everything in one place. She has little children with curious fingers so every time she wants to scrap she pulls out a few things and scraps on the floor. This would help her to keep all her supplies together and little hands out.

33 Jessica Griffin September 15, 2008 at 9:49 am

Oh my gosh!! That is gorgeous!! I have three young children (3 y, 2 y and 3 mos.) and the five of us live in a two bedroom apartment. I have NOWHERE to scrap, except our dinning table. Which means it has to be cleared at the end of each sitting, unless I want to chance my beautiful little girls recreating my creations! :)

I will be blogging about this fantastic give away, and linking back to your blog!

Thanks for the chance to win!

34 Leah September 15, 2008 at 9:53 am

HOW EXCITING! This is probably the best blog candy ever! I am in desperate need of some organization like this as my craft area is ‘cozy’ ;)

35 Kim Cronin September 15, 2008 at 9:54 am

This is the best of the best giveaways! I need this lovely piece of organization happiness because I am so completely UN organized in my crafting world. I have been on such a tight budget that I have had to hodge-podge my storage item purchases. Nothing matches well and despite painting efforts to coordinate things, it is pretty pitiful. My little children love to craft with me and it would be heavenly to be able to just shut the little cabinet and make everything disappear when needed. Winning this giveaway would bring the joy of scrapping back for me!

36 StampinCathy September 15, 2008 at 9:54 am

Wow this is fabulous. This is a stampers dream come true. I hope I’m one of 20 lucky stamper to get closer to this minibox. Thanks for a chance at this sweet giveaway.

37 Jackie September 15, 2008 at 9:54 am

This would be perfect for my friend Jessica, a true scrapbook fanatic. With three kids, she needs a way to organize her scrapbook supplies in a way that the kiddies can’t get into it. She’d love it!

38 Helen September 15, 2008 at 9:55 am

Wonderful!!!! To actually have a DEDICATED space to put MY stuff. I can only imagine… I fell in love with scrapbooking — creating an heirloom — years ago but rarely work on anything these days because my stuff is shoved in different spots throughout the house. By the time I get it all together and decide what to work on either 1) I’m out of “free time” and have to be a mommy/wife/grownup again or 2) the mood has passed and I end up frustrated that I’ve just wasted an hour pulling it altogether.

39 Jackie September 15, 2008 at 9:55 am

Oh what a wonder this would do for my studio! I bought a house…too bad I couldn’t afford anything storage/organizational items for it!

40 Jeannine Billings September 15, 2008 at 9:59 am

I have been anxiously awaiting this giveaway! I would love to have this piece of furniture, and I have the perfect spot picked out for it! Thanks for the chance to win!

41 Yolanda S September 15, 2008 at 10:00 am

What a great way to do a giveaway :) The MiniBox would totally increase the time I spent actually scrapping and crafting. Usually I have to put things away and search for every single tool or embellishment (“Hmmm, did I put those chipboard pieces with the alphabets or in the big junky drawer?)
This would make me so happy, not to mention clear up enough room so that my girls and hubby could use the office again! :)

42 Rebecca September 15, 2008 at 10:03 am

Currently I have a very finetuned crafting system *ahem* cardboard boxes! yeah its not all that handy, and honestly sort of junky, but it worked fine. That is until my daughter started trying to stand up all the time. Now everything needs to be bolted to the wall or somehow off the floor. So I have boxes on top of the shelves and piles on top of the table. Winning would be great, but if I don’t I am fulling prepared to go to the store and spend a pretty penny on some organizational goods that make things easy to find for me, and not likely to tip over for her.

43 Angel S. September 15, 2008 at 10:06 am

Thanks for the chance to enter!
I really need a surge of excitement and a kick in the rear to get my life more organized! We have had a really bad spring/summer as far as jobs go. I have been in a funk feeling a little down. I was just telling my husband I need to get back to scrapping because not only does it allow for me to get those pictures in my albums, but it forces me to sit back, reminisce over the pictures and count my blessings as I journal. Scrapping is good for my soul!!

44 Sheila Oxley September 15, 2008 at 10:17 am

I have been drooling over this the last couple weeks!!!! I have been trying desperately to organize my scrap space….but with little money that isn’t happening very quickly. Right now my desk is piled up with stuff I have no idea where to put it! It so embarrassing that I have to scrap at my dinner table right now…so not much gets done!!! And my little boy wants to play in my scrap room so bad, he calls it making scraps, but there is no room! Please pick me (insert puppy eyes here!!!!hahaha)

45 Lori Nielsen September 15, 2008 at 10:21 am

Thanks for this great giveaway! Ihave been a paper scrapper for 18 years and just recently changed over to 12 x 12 about 2 years ago and I still don’t have everything organized. I moved my craft room over the summer from upstairs to downstairs which has helped a lot because now I have a closet, but I went in on a buy of 12 x 12 Bazzil paper with my friends and I don’t have enough storage for it all so this would be great. The room I am in has no cabinets at all and just a folding table set up to scrap on. Scrapping is my love so to win this would be GREAT!

46 Kelli Burke-Sanchez September 15, 2008 at 10:37 am

WOW!!! I would be thrilled to win this! I am currently saving the money to buy the “big” original Scrap Box :) If I am a finalist, I will also have to submit a picture of my spare room that I requisitioned when we moved into our new home in July. I must say, I am ashamed to show it to anyone, but winning the Mini Box would be motivation to get it finished! Good luck to all :)

47 Emily September 15, 2008 at 10:38 am

Amazing giveaway. You have absolutely no idea how much I NEED this for my scrapbooking room. I have no way of organizing my paper right now so it just sits in stacks cluttering the room. I love to be organized, but just haven’t been able to afford anything nice like this to help me with my organization, so PICK ME!
Emily A

48 Sara September 15, 2008 at 10:42 am

What a great giveaway!! I want to scrapbook so bad but don’t because my scrap room/office is a disaster! I really could use some organization in my life!

49 Erica Hettwer September 15, 2008 at 10:43 am

Wow! I would so love to win this prize. My hubby and I live in a small house and with the arrival of our second child in April, I will be losing my only space to craft. This would be great as it looks nice and closes up to keep the kiddo and kiddo-to-come out of everything. :D

50 Kelly Groves September 15, 2008 at 10:50 am

This organizational piece looks fabulous. I’ve struggled for a long time how to organize all of my stuff and I’ve never figured it out. I’m always in a state of reorganization because the last one didn’t work. I would love to have something made to do what I want it to.

51 Natalie September 15, 2008 at 10:52 am

Holy smokes! This is amazing. I am in dire need of this wonderful product!!

52 Jennifer Butler September 15, 2008 at 10:56 am

Thanks for coming up with another great contest. I would love to have this in my apartment because it would allow me to scrapbook more. I currently have to keep all my scrapbook stuff stored in varioud places in my dining room and living room. I can’t leave anything out because I have a three year old that would love all the markers and pretty paper. Because I can’t leave things out, I spend more time pulling my things out and putting them back then I do scrapbooking. If I could have this, everything would be in one spot and I could get more then one page done at a time!
Thanks again for offering something like this, I couldn’t afford it myself. One family income doesn’t leave much money for my hobby!!

53 Lesley September 15, 2008 at 10:59 am

I would love to win this. I will be having our 3rd baby soon – and I’ll have 3 children under 3 years old. I find it really reduces my stress levels to try and have a place for everything so that when I get a minute for a tidy-up, I can easily put things away in their proper place. This would help enormously. Plus I am accumulating a lot of scrapbooking stuff and need to get working on baby books/scrapbooks, so this would really be an incentive to get moving on those :-)
What a wonderful giveaway!! Thanks

54 Liz S. September 15, 2008 at 11:01 am

What I love the most about the mini box is that not only is it super cute and sylin’, but I would be able to organize all my crafty things into one place! I love it! I hadn’t seen this before until I found your website. I would love to use this. Right now I have my papers, tools, tulle to make tutus, hair bow stuff and other crafty things spread out in all sorts of different locations. It would be awesome to just go to one spot where everything is neatly in place…especially since I live in such a tiny place! I hope I get picked!!

55 Maria September 15, 2008 at 11:03 am

Oh my goodness! This is truly amazing!!! I am so excited! And I’m just praying I did it all right & that all the extra stuff I did for the earlier contests will still count towards this contest or do I have to do it all over again??? Oh gosh, I hope I’ve already covered all my bases….

56 Lindsay September 15, 2008 at 11:19 am

I have been counting the days until this giveaway. I could not want this more! Right now my craft supplies live in a closet. THere are so many, that they fit only just so, like a puzzle. I spend so much time looking for, getting out, and putting away craft supplies that the small amoutn of crafting time I have (i am a full time child therapist) is cut in half. THis would help so much!

57 Kris Graff September 15, 2008 at 11:19 am

This is an amazing giveaway. I first saw this box on your site, and I have been so excited for this. I try to be organized but when you just can’t get great tools like this……I like most other people have my stuff is several places around my house and then have to gather it all and move it to my kitchen table to scrap. I hardly ever scrap at home. I usually do it when I get together with my mom and sisters and I have to gather it all up to take it with me. Having everything in one organized place would make it so much easier to scrap at home….then maybe I could actually do my 3 year old’s birth!!!!!

58 Becky Smith September 15, 2008 at 11:24 am

What an awesome giveaway! I am super organized with everything else in my house (I love my label maker, you should see my son’s playroom!)…except with my scrapbooking supplies! All of my stuff is tucked under tables, in corners, and on top of things in my living room. I also have more upstairs too! I hope I win this so I can finally get all my scrapbooking stuff organized too! Thanks!

59 Nicole September 15, 2008 at 11:24 am

Wow! What an amazing and generous giveaway. To be quite honest, this would be a total godsend for me. I am currently pulling my craft stuff out of an armoire that holds books as well as a few containers under a spare bed every time I want to use it, then put it back whenever I am finished. And the fact that it’s also a workspace would be wonderful.
I feel bad for my SO because he’s so nice about letting me have stuff out and work on it all over the place whenever I need to get it done, but getting this would be a nice way to surprise him (and keep myself organized). Anyway, thanks for the giveaway.

60 Gina Stratos September 15, 2008 at 11:27 am

My craft studio is in shambles…. I’d love to win!

61 Holly Tourville September 15, 2008 at 11:29 am

What is the reason I need this gorgeous piece of furniture you ask? Well here’s a little riddle for you. He’s 8 months old, into EVERYTHING, a drooling machine, and a terror that crawls. I LOVE my little man more than anything, but he also loves mom’s scrapbook supplies. This would be perfect to keep little hands out of mom’s stuff.

Thanks for the AWESOME giveaway!!

62 Anna Slocum September 15, 2008 at 11:29 am

Wow-what an incredible giveaway! Hmm, why should I be the one to win…I guess you can say I’m more of a srapbook supply collecter than an acutal scrapbooker. I’m in desperate need of getting organized so I can get TONS of pages done. My oldest daughter is a Senior in high school this year and I’m so far behind with her pictures it isn’t even funny. This would help be get everything in one place so I can just sit down and rock out page after page after page. WhooHoo-you rock!!

63 Michelle September 15, 2008 at 11:36 am

Unbelievable. It would be absolute heaven to have a workspace where I could have a separate place for all my supplies, and then CLOSE IT UP so the kids couldn’t get all grabby with my things. My husband was just looking around at all the bins and bookshelves we have stuffed with bags and baskets and I just might have to start taking inventory because I’m afraid he’s going to start tossing things when I’m not looking! This way no one would have to know what I have except me! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win.

64 Becky Rico September 15, 2008 at 11:41 am

WOW! What an amazing giveaway! That system looks wonderful. I would love to add it to my craft room. :)

65 Katie September 15, 2008 at 11:42 am

What a fantastic giveaway!
I have so many scrap things that I’m always looking for new and better ways to store them.
Thanks for the wonderful chance to own a Mini Box!

66 Maria September 15, 2008 at 11:46 am

I live in a tiny 2 bedroom and have been saving up for the Scrapbox ever since I saw it at my lss store. To win one would be super fantastic. No more cardboard boxes under my table, no more stuff jumbled on top of everything else. To win the Mini Box would be a dream come true!

67 Kim G September 15, 2008 at 11:47 am

WOW! This is awesome! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to organize, maybe even more than scrapping! This would go so well in my scraproom and the possibilities are endless.

This is such an awesome give-away. I live in a small house and don’t have a “craft room”. Whenever I scrapbook I have to drag everything out from storage and then put it all away when I’m done. I can’t leave it out because we use all of our space for day to day living. It would so great to have everything in one place and to be able to just go sit down and scrapbook whenever I wanted to. I find that I just don’t do it because it’s such an effort to get everything out. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

69 Stephanie September 15, 2008 at 11:49 am

Oh my goodness. I would love to win this. I am so unorganized right now with my scrapbooking things because I have no where to put it all. This would be incredible to own something like this. I would have a place for everything. Thanks for such an awesome giveaway.

70 Kristin Troyer September 15, 2008 at 11:50 am

WOW! This is an awesome giveaway!

71 Sandi Tygar September 15, 2008 at 11:55 am

OMG – what an incredible prize. I would probably fall over in a dead faint if I were chosen, but it’s a chance I’d love to take.

I could use this SO badly – so badly. You have NO idea.

72 Sue D September 15, 2008 at 11:58 am

Wow this is wonderful–I sure could use something like this. I can’t stand it when I can’t find something so anything to organize is great!

73 Cheryl September 15, 2008 at 12:00 pm

OH MY GOSH!! This is amazing, I have never even seen this before. I would love to own one of these to tame all my stuff into one space! I have not been scrapping long, but I have gotten alot of stuff from family and from my own purchases. But with a price tag of $800, I know I will never own one unless I win it. It would be so nice!! Pick Me Please!!!

74 Jen T September 15, 2008 at 12:07 pm

With 4 little kiddos trying to stay organized is a major challenge! This would be soooooo awesome! Thanks for having such wonderful contests!

75 Cinda September 15, 2008 at 12:16 pm

I would love to be considered for this. What a wonderful

76 Valerie September 15, 2008 at 12:21 pm

I would love one of these! How great!

77 Misty September 15, 2008 at 12:27 pm

Oh my goodness! I would LOVE this! I live in a tiny house, and having such an awesome place to store all of my supplies would be heaven sent! Pick me, Pick me!!

78 Teresa Anderson September 15, 2008 at 12:32 pm

This is just what I need. I really need to get my small space organized and this seems to be the perfect way to get started. I hope I win!!!!!!!

79 michelle September 15, 2008 at 12:33 pm

i had never seen one of these before, what a “neat” concept! how nice of you to share the joy! i love beautiful organization, and would enjoy and appreciate something like this to inspire me to not only create paper crafts more efficiently, but also to remind me of lovely things like kindness, sharing, talents, and new friendships that help me to believe and to continue……..

thanks so much for opportunity!

80 Shari September 15, 2008 at 12:34 pm

OMG!!! this would be such an awesome prize to win!!! :)
thank you so much for the opportunity!!! :)
shari :)

81 Kimberly Sacks September 15, 2008 at 12:34 pm

I would LOVE to win this! I fortunately have a craft room…well for now. I am using our 2nd bedroom. I am planning on starting a family soon and will need the room as a nursery, so I am going to need an organized way to organize the piles of stuff that I have.

The ScrapBox is the perfect solution! Please pick me as one of your finalists and I will explain further, why I NEED a ScrapBox.


82 Q September 15, 2008 at 12:35 pm

Wow – what a generous giveaway. I would love to win this as I’m dying for more storage that is neatly contained. I scrap out of a closet for now and this would be the perfect way to add more storage and have it look so nice!

83 Sydni September 15, 2008 at 12:37 pm

I first saw this product at a scrapbooking show and almost died. Then I saw the price and almost killed myself. j/k I currently have all of my craft stuff (scrapbooking, polymer clay, needlework, decopage, etc.) all over the guest bedroom. It is so bad we can’t even walk in there anymore. I really need an organizing system like this. I don’t have any surface to craft on or anywhere to store things. It is driving me crazy! I have been looking forward to this contest ever since you started posting about it. I hope I win!

84 aimee September 15, 2008 at 12:43 pm

Wow! That is just too cool. I cannot tell you how loved it will be at my house. We just moved (again- yup twice in 2 years, 3 times in 4 years). This beautiful 80 year old house is our fixer upper. It has so little storage that I sometimes stand in front of our boxes and alternate between questioning the move and just crying out of frustration. Thanks for the chance!

85 Katie Brewer September 15, 2008 at 12:49 pm

I would love to win this. I have been looking for somehing that would fit in the extra bedroom were I do my scrapbooking. I just put stuff in the closet and shut the door when I have visiters. This would make it so much nicer and organized. Please pick me.

86 Genevive Larson September 15, 2008 at 12:53 pm

With 4 kid scrapbooks and 2 family scrapbooks going I seriously need some organization. I feel that if I won this I would actually work on my scrapbooks instead of just thinking about it.

87 Mel September 15, 2008 at 12:54 pm

This is an awesome giveaway…it would totally make my scrapbook room to win!

88 Cyndy Gustashaw September 15, 2008 at 12:54 pm

I have had the link to The Original Scrapbox in my favorites for about a year now. Everytime I need to escape I watch their flash movie of the box opening and fantasize about my own box opening with all my supplies neatly origanized and at my fingertips (I even hear their theme music in my head). I have shown the video to my family, friends and co-workers. What a wonderful and functional piece of furniture! I would love to be chosen for this give-away, it would make my get-away a reality.

89 Amanda September 15, 2008 at 12:57 pm

Wowzers! How amazing is this?! How do you do it? I would absolutely love this. I have my scrapbook and craft stuff in 3 different rooms of the house and none of it is very organized! What a fabulous gift this would be! Good luck to all!!

90 Hilary C September 15, 2008 at 1:13 pm

Hang on a sec… ok… sorry…. my heart stopped beating. I can’t believe this giveaway is finally here! I have been waiting for it for ages! :) I REALLY hope I win this one… my one year old LOVES getting into my scrapbooking stuff and this thing would really help with keeping him away from it all!

91 Sharla September 15, 2008 at 1:22 pm

Honestly, there are really no words to express how absolutely ecstatic I would be to win this. I have one year old twins and I can’t tell you how many stamps/accessories/papers they have destroyed because I have nowhere to put my scrapbook and stamping stuff. I usually end up putting it all up on my table and out of my drawers and then I have nowhere to actually do anything! So although I’ve always had the worst luck here, is my first entry and watch your email for many more!!

92 Tiffany September 15, 2008 at 1:24 pm

This is an AWESOME giveaway! I absolutely love to be organized! This past March I FINALLY got my craft room and this would look great in it! Not to mention, I could fill it up in no time. :)

93 Jill September 15, 2008 at 1:25 pm

Scrapbooking really rocks
but my disorganized product shocks
A shot at this giveaway
would allow me to put it away
I really could use The MiniBox!

At the very least I could use what I write as one of the 20 finalists to convince my husband once and for all that I NEED The Minibox!

94 Kellie September 15, 2008 at 1:28 pm

This would be more of a win for my husband and kids than for me. When I scrap I have a tendency to spread everything everywhere…I am a fairly organized person but in a house with 2 very active, very curious small boys and 1 big “boy” I often find that my pictures (or even worse, my pens/markers) disappear or “somehow” mysteriously end up laden with mud, food, milk, juice, or any other product you would like to insert here. This would give me a “mommy only space” where I would be able to sit and completely finish one or even two pages at one time without having to run all over the house in search of the mysterious scrapping black hole…I know my husband and kids would be very happy for ME to win :)

95 Sandy Lewis September 15, 2008 at 1:33 pm

OMG – I LOVE this!!! I feel fortunate to have this opportunity! Thank you so much.

96 TinaJewel September 15, 2008 at 1:39 pm

I am just needing one of these to keep everything organized! We are decluttering our house and I have scrapbooking stuff here and there and never am able to do much because I don’t want the clutter of getting it all out! Would love to have this!

97 Jennifer September 15, 2008 at 1:43 pm

What a brilliant idea! And it is as fashionable as it is functional! This has got to be the best craft organizer ever. It is so well thought out – from drawer sizes to work space – this thing has it ALL!

I would love to have one. Ever since I “accidentally” started a home business, my poor scrap area has suffered tremendously. The vinyl cutter I bought for scrapping use is now used for making the signs and banners that have taken over my workspace!

This would also be the perfect way to make sure my scrap-time doesn’t take away from family time. The black unit would integrate perfectly into the rest our living areas so I could scrap with my kids while they do their homework or watch movies.

98 Holly September 15, 2008 at 1:44 pm

Wow what an awesome prize! I haven’t scrapbooked since I got pregnant with my second child (due in December) due to a cross country move and the fact that my 16 month old would be into EVERYTHING. I feel guilty for not keeping up with my scrapbooking though. If I had this cool piece of furniture my husband wouldn’t complain so much when I DO scrapbook- he hates the HUGE mess I make with all my supplies because they are so unorganized!

Thanks for the chance to win this! :)

99 Alissa Yoder September 15, 2008 at 1:58 pm

I am so excited about this! Boy, do I need to get organized! And the space it would save…

Midland, MI

100 emilyt September 15, 2008 at 2:22 pm

This box is exactly the right thing for EVRY scrapper! I want to think inside that box!!

101 Susanne September 15, 2008 at 2:28 pm

Wow! What a nice prize. After reading some of the responses, I couldn’t say that I need it more than someone else. But it sure would be nice to have. My daughter and I share a craft room and anything that can help us in the organization department is greatly appreciated!

102 Lisa J September 15, 2008 at 2:29 pm

This is so fantastic. I need this!!!! I live in a really small (really small) home and this would enable me to help keep my scrap space neat. It is part of my living room.

103 Rebecca Y September 15, 2008 at 2:46 pm

Wow…what an amazing product! I am very into organization and the only thing I can say is….I have 5 kids and I live in a 3 bedroom home. I will NEVER get a scrapbooking room, so I love products like this that hold SO MUCH in so little space!

104 Jean Marmo September 15, 2008 at 3:12 pm

What – give up my 18 inch desk area? Have supplies sorted into categories and colors? I would not even know where to begin if my supplies were organized like this! No more jumping over piles on the floor or sifting through hundresd of sheets of paper in a holder to find what I am looking for. It would be like dying and going to heaven.

I could so use this!

Thanks for the opportunity/

105 Shannon Cummins September 15, 2008 at 3:31 pm

I’m OCD, I need to be organized. I can’t think of a better way. I need it, I want it. I desire it…. Let me have it….

106 Leea September 15, 2008 at 3:36 pm

This has been on my want/wish list since some girls I know got one, but as usual bills come up….thanks for the chance! Off to blog

107 Julie September 15, 2008 at 3:38 pm

Wow — what a totally fantastic prize. I would love to win this box because I recently repurposed a room in my home entirely for crafting. Now I have a large space with no way to organize it, so it’s just as chaotic as when I was crafting wherever I found a space. I’d love this to get me started.

108 Andrea Comiskey September 15, 2008 at 3:50 pm

What a wonderful way to stay organized! I would be able to take my supplies out of my bag and off the craft table and use the table as it was meant, as a place for me and my DD 3 and DS 5 to craft together.

109 Kiley September 15, 2008 at 4:02 pm

I would absolutely love to win this! I own my own little handmade hair accessories business and this would work perfectly for me! I would have room for all of my business items and scrapbook stuff too!

110 Stephanie Shumway September 15, 2008 at 4:03 pm

YAY! I’ve been waiting on pins and needles for this giveaway!!! I’m so excited for the chance to win this awesome prize! I need my space and this would provide it for me- I’m sure my family would be so happy to be able to eat at the kitchen table again! LOL

111 Kristen September 15, 2008 at 4:29 pm

I would love to knock the socks off my sister by surprising her with this. She has a very small bedroom and stashes all her stuff under the bed or in her nightstand. She barely has room to sleep with all the scrapbook stuff everywhere.

112 Erika S September 15, 2008 at 4:36 pm

We just found out after 3 years of trying that we a prego (through IVF) with baby #2!!!! Needless to say, we need to make room for the baby so my scrap space will now become BABYSPACE. I Oh so LOve would LOVE to have this wonderful box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

113 Karen Loper September 15, 2008 at 4:45 pm

AMAZING giveaway!! This is going to be an incredible gift to the winner (hopefully me) !! I have a spot picked out already for it….It would give me so much more “time” to scrap because I wouldn’t have to play hide and seek with my supplies and it would give me “my little place to Play” other than the kitchen table or the floor…THANKS for the chance……..Karen L.

114 LollyChops September 15, 2008 at 5:04 pm

I see you are at it again! I think it’s terrific that you organize these little giveaways (who am I kidding – this is not little this is HUGE)!!! I am not sure that I deserve anything like this but I think it would help me get my scrap stuff off of my rickety shelves (a leftover from my husband’s single days) and closet and into some sort of neat-easy-to-access gizmo! How totally cool would that be! Good luck to LollyChops! haha

Hope you have a terrific week!

115 Rhonda September 15, 2008 at 5:24 pm

Oh my goodness … what a WONDERFUL giveaway! If I had that I know I would actually be able to FIND those papers that I know I bought buy I haven’t seen for weeks. What fun it would be to get so organized! Thanks for sponsoring such a terrific giveaway.

116 Kelly K September 15, 2008 at 5:31 pm

Oh my goodness, that is a little piece of heaven!! I would LOVE to win that!

117 Connie Crandall September 15, 2008 at 5:42 pm

Wow! What a fabulous product! This is exactly what I need to get organized and get scrapping!

118 Pamk September 15, 2008 at 5:51 pm

I would love to win that. I don’ think I coud justify spending 800 on a scrapbook item. And I would be so much more organized and not have to scrapbook in one place and go looking through my stuff in 2 other places.

119 Tamela September 15, 2008 at 6:15 pm

I so need this! I use to be an avid scrapbooker, but I haven’t made a page in 3 years. Everytime I think I have some time to scrapbook, it takes me the entire time to find everything I need. My scrapbook supplies are currently housed in 2 different closets.

120 Jennifer S. September 15, 2008 at 6:19 pm

If I had the MiniBox organizer my office would be able to look like an office again instead of a graveyard of unfinished objects preventing me from making use of my desk for schoolwork, the purpose for which it was actually intended…

121 Ericka September 15, 2008 at 6:21 pm

I am not quite sure I deserver to earn it, but I’d love to earn it because we have a relatively small house (1500 sq ft) and four (hopefully five soon) people living in it and currently there are some old bookcases in my bedroom housing my scrapbook supplies… it is a tight fit & not very sightly. However, I have this one empty wall in my kitchen and the black Mini Scrapbox would look so great there & then as I school & keep up with other household needs I could have a cute & easily accessible scrapbook area!

122 Mary Demmons September 15, 2008 at 6:24 pm

WOW! What an awesome prize!! I would absolutely love to win this. Our house is small so to find a place to use as my scrapbooking area, my dear hubby was willing to give up a small (and I mean small) part of our bedroom. Just so I didn’t have to fight to use the kitchen table. This would be the best thing that I could ever win. I would definately have some storage space then!!!

123 Erin Huddleston September 15, 2008 at 6:44 pm

I love it! I love it! I love it!!!! This is an amazing giveaway!! I would love to win this prize! We live in a small apartment with our new baby boy and not a lot of storage space. I love to scrapbook, stamp, and make cards, but I unfortunately I don’t get to do it as often as I like. My craft area consists of a small cabinet and the dining table! It is such a hassle to take everything out and put it back that I just don’t do it very often. The MiniBox would be a wonderful storage/organizing space and would keep my craft goodies out of reach of little hands…and I would definitely scrap a lot more!

124 Deb September 15, 2008 at 6:50 pm

I would like to win this – not for myself, but for my daughter-in-law. She is in the Navy and lives in military housing with my son and her 3 sons. Therefore, no place to scrap. Her items are stored in a cardboard box and kept in a closet. I have wanted to get her a storage unit; but as we are retired Navy have never been able to do this,

125 Becky Moore September 15, 2008 at 6:54 pm

I’ll say it again…WOW…what an amazing give-away! I just know that the minibox would be THE THING to get me organized. All of my scrapbooking supplies right there, WHERE I need it, WHEN I need it…winning this prize would just make my year!

126 Aubrey Pena September 15, 2008 at 7:04 pm

As our family has grown my crafting/scrapbook/card area has shrunk! I would love to have one central location to do what makes me me!

127 Terressa September 15, 2008 at 7:33 pm

I have been waiting for this…I think that I would want to do my crafts with this nifty “tool”…in a little 1000 sq ft. home with four children space is hard to come by, this would REALLY help! it’s been way too long since I’ve pulled out my items all because of space and stuff ;)

128 SusanH September 15, 2008 at 7:52 pm

This is the most amazing give away!! I’m sitting in my pile of crafting goodness wondering where in the world to put it all…this is perfect!

I’m off to subscribe to the newsletter – sounds interesting.

129 Michelle September 15, 2008 at 8:00 pm

This is the most remarkable product! Seriously, the inventor was beyond genius. To be able to be so organized while having everything sooo accessible is my greatest fantasy. Just think of all the projects that could get done with a definite space!

Thanks for the opportunity, this is an amazing giveaway.

130 Wendy Lust September 15, 2008 at 8:03 pm

Seven years ago I broke my ankle. I’ve had eleven surgeries and extreme pain which persists. My ankle is now fused; it does not bend. Thank goodness I was already a scrapbooker! We have been trying to move all my scrapbook supplies into the first floor room where I sleep so my walking can be minimized. But organizing it and having places to put things is a challenge. This fabulous Scrapbox would be hugely helpful! Sitting in one place with everything in reach…you can’t imagine what that would mean to me! Thanks for the opportunity!

131 Sandy September 15, 2008 at 8:15 pm

WOW! What an awesome giveaway! I LOVE the way the minibox looks but even more, I love the organization and design to the unit. This would help me to have a place for all my important stuff! Currently, I can’t seem to find a home for my scrapping supplies and it’s causing my scrapping time to be stressful rather than enjoyable. THANK YOU Vanilla Joy for the opportunity!

132 Kelly Y September 15, 2008 at 8:17 pm

I am so excited about this giveaway. I could set this desk in my living room and not have to scrapbook in my closet anymore :) With a 5 yr old, 3 yr old and 5 month old, I could actually get something done since I would be more organized. I would have everything at my fingertips. I am aleady daydreaming about it.

133 Amy S. September 15, 2008 at 8:34 pm

My scrapbooking supplies are divided between my dining area, my closet, and my bedroom. You can only imagine what it is like to try and put a layout together. Sometimes it takes longer to find the stuff I want to use then it takes to actually put a page together. I would love to be lucky enough to win this prize. Amy Snyder

134 Melissa Brown September 15, 2008 at 8:39 pm

Hi! First of all, I have to say this is a fabulous give away. Winning this giveaway would make my scrapping time and space much more efficient. I have a space, but it is located in our unfinished basement and it is away from my family. So I have moved some of my stash up stairs by the computer. My stash is housed in three tote bags, one pink mm roller tote and matching bag, on the computer table (which is visible from the front door), I have expanded into the dinning room and kitchen. I sort of move around when I scrap. This minibox, would help me keep my house in better order, my stash out of the reach of little hands, and I would have more time to scrap. I would not have to pull everything out to see it and then put it all away again, which takes away from actual scrapping time. I would also be able to unpack my bags properly after each crop. I go to 2 crops a month.

The last thing I want to say is that this would help keep my embellishments and other scrappy investments from getting bent and whatnot. Right now they are smushed in my bags.

Thanks for reading my little book. Good luck to all that enter and I hope the minibox finds a good home, like mine.


135 MaryBeth Isaac September 15, 2008 at 8:51 pm

As my teen would say – “OMG!!!”

This is a great giveaway. I would love to use this for my beading and craft supplies. I hate lugging everything out from the closet. I could create a nice workspace with this. Pick me! Pick me! Well, RANDOMLY pick me and then pick me again.

136 Amy September 15, 2008 at 9:31 pm

This would be the best gift I could ever receive. I love to do crafts and scrapbook and make my own cards and this would be the tool for me to have everything I need and be in my own little happy world. As soon as my 4 kids are in bed, I could do my thing, and boy do I need my time. It’s how I relax at night, doing my crafts and coming up with ideas. It would just be great to have this.

137 Amy :) September 15, 2008 at 9:43 pm

Oh my goodness, I am SO in need of this piece of furniture!

138 Adele Aston September 15, 2008 at 10:13 pm

Oooooh… I have been looking forward to this giveaway ever since you first announced it!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this thing and would LOVE to get my hands on one!! Such a gorgeous and functional piece of furniture… Love it…

139 Monica September 15, 2008 at 10:21 pm

oh man, oh man, oh man!!
I watched the videos. I even dragged my hubby to watch the videos. What can I say, he wants it for me more than I do!!! And I do want it pretty bad. We live in an apartment that I have my own little scrapbooking corner, but nowhere to sit except the floor. I hope to be considered as a finalist so you can read my whole story.

140 Lynette Chye September 15, 2008 at 10:32 pm

To know why I should win this I would like to invite you to see my closet of scrapbooking products. It would propably win top prize for the scariest props for halloween. lol. But Ilike this prize better. I have bags upon bags of scrapbooking products stack on top of each other. I buy them and did not have proper place to organise them. So you can imagine how I have to go through those bags to find the scrapbooking products each time I scrapbook. Fun part is I get to “surprise” myself with products that I did not know I have because they buried among the bags. lol. So do you think I qualify to be in your 20 finalist?

141 DawnL Poole September 15, 2008 at 11:24 pm

I really need something like this so I can hide all my scrapbook stuff and my husband won’t give me a bad time about having to look at my mess

142 Casey Toney September 16, 2008 at 12:11 am

This MiniBox would be a Godsend. I am continually striving to organize my scrap area in a way that is both neat AND functional. I have encountered healthcare issues over the last 18 months which has forced me into retirement. Having things well within reach and optimally organized would help me to make the best of the time I feel up to papercrafting.

143 Yelowflower Mo September 16, 2008 at 2:06 am

I think that the best and most honest reason I can think of for wanting to win this is —-I WANT IT!!!! No explainations, no rationalizations, just pure and simple DESIRE! lol

now, my question is…after you pick your 20 finalists and they write their essays, what next? You didn’t explain what the next requirement is to win! How can I make sure I win if I don’t know all the details?

144 Robin N. September 16, 2008 at 3:01 am

I have been eyeing this system forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have even given a photo of it to DH, just in case he would get a wild hair and want to build me one! LOL….
I have your blinkie on my blog…
Good luck to everyone

145 Amy Ritter September 16, 2008 at 4:25 am

Great product for those of us who have little space and little kids. I could sure use that. Amy R.

146 karla nathan September 16, 2008 at 6:32 am

I agree, this is an amazing blog giveaway! That cabinet looks like the ideal craft room accessory.

147 Deanne September 16, 2008 at 6:36 am

I scrapbook in the first room you see when you come in my house it would be so great to have something so wonderful to keep my stuff in this is amazing!! I have admired these from afar for so long! I can’t imagine how great it would be to really have one!

148 Alyssa M. September 16, 2008 at 7:02 am

This is such an awesome giveaway! I would LOVE to have this! Right now I have a traditional computer desk for my scrap space and it is hard to find things in the deep drawers, adn 12×12 stuff doesn’t fit right…. and I spend so much time sorting adn cleaning because everything is in the living room! I can’t imagine how much time this would save me!

149 Jenn September 16, 2008 at 7:35 am

I would love to win this! I just moved into a new house a few months ago and am struggling with my scrapbook space. I just don’t have enough storage right now. So this Minibox would be a great solution for me.

150 Amber September 16, 2008 at 8:43 am

I would just love to win the Minibox. I love to scrapbook, but I don’t get to do it as often as I’d like. All of my pictures and supplies are shoved into a huge storage tote in a closet. Other stuff gets stacked on top of the tote because it’s the heaviest and would crush anything I put on top of it. This product would be a great solution in that my things would be put away, organized, and accessible. So I would be able to spend more time scrapbooking and less time getting my stuff out.

151 Mandy Taylor September 16, 2008 at 8:51 am

Oh my word! This is seriously the coolest thing I have EVER seen! I love to scrapbook, but living in a small apartment makes it so hard to find space to do what I love! If I won this giveaway I would put this MiniBox to good use! I have wanted something like this to organize my stuff…I can’t believe how perfect this system looks….thank you for offering this wonderful gift….I hope I win!!!

152 Lesly Adams September 16, 2008 at 8:55 am

I’ve just turned my very small extra bedroom into my craft room. I quilt, scrapbook, stamp, knit, and cross-stitch. Trying to organize all of these into there own area of the room is a MAJOR challenge. In addition I have an eight year old son who loves to stamp and make cards with Mommy. This would allow me to organize my stamping things in one area where both Michael and I would be able to find things easily. The Minibox would be the perfect solution for us and something that I can’t afford to purchase right now.

153 Michelle Baucum September 16, 2008 at 9:30 am

I think I should win this prize because I need to become more organized! I have to share my crafting space with my boyfriends 20 year old deaf & blind cat (his litter box and food and such is in the same room). I would feel more clean if everything had a storage area! Also, I don’t want any of my stuff rolling off the table I pile things on and have him choke on something!!!!! Thanks for this opportunity!

154 Kam A September 16, 2008 at 9:36 am

WOW!! I love organization and right now my area is a mess- this would be SO helpful in helping me to get everything in it’s proper place! Thank you so much for an amazing giveaway!!

155 Amy Rhoads September 16, 2008 at 9:49 am

This has to be the absolute best blog give away ever!! I have had my eye on the Minibox as well as the Work Box for a while now. I have a picture of both of these on my vision board working to get them!! I had the opportunity to participate in a focus group from this company few months ago in Provo and I have fallen in LOVE. I have blogged about how this is my dream toy several times now…. Getting a chance to see it in person just made me want it even more!!! I have realized SO MANY different ways to use this. Scrapbooking is a cinch with it!!! This is my lucky day! I can feel it in my bones :-) Pick me! Pick me!!

156 Anne September 16, 2008 at 9:58 am

Oh my gosh! What an amazing give-away! The cute picture of you and your Minibox makes me drool! I would love to win this baby – my scrapbooking area is SO messy that I don’t even know where to start. It’s baby-proofed for my two kiddos, but so baby-proofed that everything is just shoved into corners, cabinets, and tupperware! Yes, tupperware! Thanks for a great give-away! Whoever wins is one lucky cat! Have a great day!

157 Loretta September 16, 2008 at 10:37 am

Wow, what a neat system! I’m fairly well organized but always need new storage solutions for my growing inventory of supplies.

Thank you for such a great opportunity and I love this web blog!

Stamp Happy!


158 Jacquie September 16, 2008 at 10:59 am

This would be a dream come true. I have been scrapping for almost a year and still have only a couple of boxes to hold all my things. Needless to say everything is a mess and I have to search for papers and stamps that get all jumbled up, it takes me extra time to find what I want. I think having things in one place would add to being creative, being able to have all colors accessable.
I have 2 small children and this would help 1. keep them out of things that they might get hurt by, punches, scissors, 2. be able to keep all of our supplies in identifyable drawers. They frequently “help” me craft and this would be so helpful, they could have their own drawers and feel really special!
I presently make cards and scrapbook on my dining room table, i lug things out of the cupboards everyday to make cards to sell for extra money because I am a stay at home mom. This organizational system it the most amazing thing I have seen ever. What a clever invention! Thank you!

159 Bev Gerard September 16, 2008 at 11:21 am

This is the ultimate in blog candy! I usually stamp 4-6 days per week … but this organization would enable me to create with so much new efficiency! Oh how much time I could save … not to mention those up & downs to go get another item for my creation!

160 Kristen Dyer September 16, 2008 at 11:35 am

This is incredible. I have looked at these Scrapbox’s for a while now, and every time I see one I swear I drool! I would love to win, because I have a 3 year old that loves to “help”, and this would keep her out of my stuff. I would love to be able to scrap/stamp more, and this surely would help me because I wouldn’t be wasting my time on finding things. This is so generous, so thank you for such an amazing chance, and to whomever wins, CONGRATS!

161 Baba September 16, 2008 at 11:37 am

I really deserve to win this! I have always wanted one since I first laid eyes on The Original Scrapbox and all their wonderful products. My artist hubby has taken over every available working surface so I don’t really have a place of my own to craft my cards and ATC’s. This would be my own place! Hands off hubby! And the storage would be such a bonus as many of my crafting supplies are stored away in the steel building because I don’t have a place to keep them handy yet. Please pick me to be a contestant.

162 Bree Hayhoe September 16, 2008 at 11:38 am

ScrapHag talked about this on her blog and mentioned the great tutorials you have. I have been happily browsing for the last half hour!!! Like many, my scrap space consists of a make do corner but with something like this nifty organization system I could actually feel like I real ‘scapper’, one that has everything at hand…or better put, a place for everything and everything in it’s place :)

163 Madonna September 16, 2008 at 11:38 am

I never knew a system like this existed. I don’t have the luxury of having a craft room and set up a small folding table when I want to make cards or do other crafting. This setup would give me a wonderful place to store my supplies with plenty of room for expansion. I would be able to craft much more often and expand into different types of crafting, too! Since being out of work due to disability and being house bound, crafting is my therapy. With a limited income, I could never afford to buy this for myself. Who ever wins this system will be incredibly lucky!

164 Angie F September 16, 2008 at 11:51 am

i SOOOOOOOOOOOOO need this! I have two kids 4 & under, and am expecting a third in 5 short months! plus, we are moving in 3 months – and need some furnishings! this would be a “dream-come true” for me to get more organized & have all of my scrapping, gifting, etc. supplies in arm’s reach! Plus, my 4-yr old is loving to help with projects & is quite the creative bug himself.
PICK ME!!!!!!!!!! :o)

165 Dianne Yamada September 16, 2008 at 11:59 am

WOW! I can’t believe such a prize can be given away!! This is a dream come true for one of us lucky scrapbookers! Thanks for the chance!

166 Shawna Bingham September 16, 2008 at 12:43 pm

WOW!!! This is an awesome giveaway. What a great way to get scrapbooking stuff organized. This would be wonderful in my “junk room”.

167 Lauren September 16, 2008 at 12:45 pm

I would like to win this nifty scrapbookers paradise because I just had a new baby and have lots of materials for her book, with nowhere to put them. This would be great to get me started!

168 Alexis Davies September 16, 2008 at 1:04 pm

I am so excited to be back making comments on your cute blog! I’ve been on vacation and then getting my kindergartener ready for school..YIKES!
I NEED this because I am WAY unorganized with all my scrapbook materials..not to mention i am WAY behind in scrapbooking..having three kids snuck up on me and I think I’ve finally just scrapbooked my second child’s blessing..which happened almost 4 years ago!! ahh Everything is everywhere and if I had this to organize it all, then it wouldn’t feel like such an overwhelming task.

169 Lora September 16, 2008 at 1:19 pm

This is an amazing product! I could really use it…right now, my scrapbooking supplies are in a disarray in my office closet…as I buy more stuff, I have less room to store it in my already tiny containers. Something like this would revolutionize my hobby! And, it would allow me to spend more time enjoying what I like to do rather than searching for supplies that mysteriously disappear in the mess…

170 Nikki September 16, 2008 at 1:44 pm

Wow! This is any crafting mom’s dream!

171 Day September 16, 2008 at 2:00 pm

Oh my! That is a crafter’s dream! Me likey!

172 Mary Russom September 16, 2008 at 2:26 pm

This is a crafter’s dream!!! I just got kicked out of my little craft room since we are having a baby in the family and my items are all over the place. I wasn’t all that orgnanized before, but now I’m a total wreck! I’d love to have this baby! (Well and the other baby too!!!). Pick me, pick me!!!

173 Emily September 16, 2008 at 2:52 pm

I really NEED this storage container! I am a homeschool mom of 3 beautiful kids who love to do crafts. We do them as part of school at least once a week and I am always scrounging for stuff that I know I have “somewhere”!
Thanks for a chance to get organized!

174 Kara September 16, 2008 at 3:12 pm

Wow, what an awesome prize, this would totally help my craft room! Since I work on not only scrapbooking, but cardmaking, sewing, tolepainting, quilting, stitchery, and crochet, this would really help me have a place for everything. Whoever wins is going to be one happy gal!

175 Ava Collett September 16, 2008 at 3:16 pm

I would love to have that! I spend so much time searching for stuff that I don’t have much time to scrap. And I really need to scrap- I have 6 boys!

176 Kasey September 16, 2008 at 3:27 pm

I can’t tell you how much I would love this prize! If I could have talked my husband into buying one, I would have one by now, but for some reason he doesn’t think it is a “needed” expense. I am crossing my fingers I win this one!

177 Debbie L. September 16, 2008 at 3:52 pm

I really, really, REALLY want to win this. I can’t think of any reason why I should win over anyone else, but I really, really, REALLY want one.

178 Chris September 16, 2008 at 3:57 pm

I have to admit, I’m not an avid scrapbooker–don’t stop reading! While I don’t scrapbook that much, I DO use tons of scrapbook supplies. I tend to think “out of the box” (no pun intended) when it comes to scrapbooking, and I like to see what things I can make out of them without actually doing an album. The amount of supplies I have seems infinite when I start looking for them, and I would LOVE to have this! Thank you for this give away!

179 Patty W. September 16, 2008 at 4:09 pm


We’ve been without electricty for almost 3 days ! (Thanks to Hurricane Ike coming up north !) I couldn’t wait to get the internet back up so I could surf my favorite blogs!

If you could see where I do my crafting…you would know why I’d love to win this beautiful piece of furniture! I have all my paper in a cardboard box! Makes it tough finding the right color. I am using my husbands old drafting table for a desk, creation station, storage etc. Yikes…what a mess it is ! It’s a fairly big surface but everything is just sitting on top of it with no where to go!

Plus, if I were to win the awesome, GENEROUS Minibox, it would be just the thing to get hubby to “finish” my craft area! WOO HOO !

Thank you for the chance, I truly appreciate!

180 Jodi in VT September 16, 2008 at 4:19 pm

I would love this organizational helper! Holy Hannah! And what DH wouldn’t give to see my craft area organized…

181 Staci J. September 16, 2008 at 4:20 pm

My scrapbook area is hidden under an extra table so my girls won’t get it. I’m starting a homemade card company and this would be absolutely perfect so I don’t have to hide all my stuff under the table and I could actually find all that I’m looking for without my two kids destroying everything.

182 Erin Wayland September 16, 2008 at 5:52 pm

Wow!! I just found your blog from a friend and I thought I would check it out because I love to craft and well you have just blown me away! What an amazing resource! I love your tutorials. Very easy to follow and fun ideas! I love to be organized and I love to have things be functional as well as pretty! With 3 boys of my own and a very tiny house (only 2 bedrooms) I know that space is hard to come by! I would love to have such an amazing place to store all my things so that I know little hands can’t get to it! Thanks for putting such an amazing resource together to share with others!

183 Kelly September 16, 2008 at 6:08 pm

What a blessing it would be to win this. My scrapbook stuff is currently stuck in a corner in my guest bedroom and looks horrible. I love to be organized but right now its all a big mess because I dont have enough storage. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway

184 Lorie September 16, 2008 at 6:29 pm

OH MY! I cannot even tell you how long I have wanted one of these! And now would be the perfect time because I am doing my Fall cleaning/organizing! Love it!!

185 Wendie September 16, 2008 at 7:31 pm

My husband would love you if I won this. I worked in a scrapbook store for four years. I have this terrible need to own everything. It has improved in the last year, but it was horrible when I was working there. So, I have taken over our living room and dining room. I have some organizational stuff, but it is full and overflowing. I need a place to store all those embellishments. Thank you for the opportunity!!

186 Jenny K. September 16, 2008 at 7:42 pm

I am a fairly new scrapbooker and have purchased quite a bit of new scrapbooking supplies, but I do not have adequate storage. My supplies are sitting in cardboard boxes and paper bags underneath my computer desk! Aaaagh! I could really use this system to help organize! Thank you for the opportunity!

187 Erin Glee September 16, 2008 at 8:12 pm

Winning this scrapbox would ALMOST be too good to be true! I’ve wanted, but could not afford this, and I do not have a Scrapbook/Craft room (any more… babies took it over, and now those babies are boys~ and my favorite topics to scrap about). This would make my life SO much better, to be organized and have products within arms reach when I want to get creative!
Thank you for the chance to win!

188 Ranae B September 16, 2008 at 8:18 pm

I love to scrapbook but have never seen anything so wonderful as the minibox. What a great system to get things organized especially since I have told me children (all grown and married) that I would get their childhood books done for them. The minibox would put my supplies now under the bed, on the table and in several rooms in one place and give me the incentive to carry on!

189 Andria September 16, 2008 at 8:30 pm

Wow what a prize. Baby number three pushed the space left to nil and I packed up my scrapbooking supplies. I would love to have an organized space to keep my supplies! Thanks for the giveaway!

190 Laura September 16, 2008 at 8:33 pm

Basically I’m selfish and just want it really badly. Do I need to make up a reason? Although I do get my daily exercise hunting for my scissors/glue stick/hot glue gun/my mind this would save me from actually moving at all… hmmm. Who wants to waste time doing all that moving about? Not me!

191 Janeen September 16, 2008 at 9:20 pm

I would love to win this! I love to be organized, which can be difficult in our small, 2 bedroom apartment, but with an adorable baby girl I love to scrapbook! Thanks!

192 Kim Otto September 16, 2008 at 9:20 pm

I’m one of those people that gets everything organized and then wants a certain item to use on a layout and never can find where I moved it to! This isn’t a rare thing that happens, it’s all of the time. If by some tiny chance I could actually win this wonderful Minibox I could have everything within reach and never have to wonder where all my stuff is. I might actually get some scrapping done!! I have my fingers and toes crossed on this one!

193 gisella September 16, 2008 at 9:25 pm

This is the best giveaway in the web!! I really need it, I scrapbooking with my daughter, she love it, she is 6 years old, very crafty girl …but I don’t have the space to have everything together, and when we want to do any idea, I need to go everywhere in my house to try find what I we need and with to curious kids sometimes is really hard,
cross my fingers to win this amazing mini box…… thank you!!

194 Mindy September 16, 2008 at 9:46 pm

Pick me! Pick me! Pick me! If only I had the space I needed to keep things organized I could be so much more creative and efficient. What a great giveaway! Thanks!

195 Erin September 16, 2008 at 9:53 pm

What a great giveaway! Pick me I really need a space for all my scrapbook things. My brown packing boxes are not cutting it. Love it! Thanks!!!

196 Aymee Gandy September 16, 2008 at 10:22 pm

Wow! What a great giveaway! I would absolutely love and be so blessed to win this!!! I scrapbook every single day in a itty bitty nook in my living room. I run out of room all the time. I think I could get sooo much more done if I was better organized. I try, but it seems like all the trying and organizing always just makes more work for me. I have yet to find a system that will work for me. This looks so awesome. Also, it so hard for me to organize. I am very thankful for what I do have, but my husband and I are not rich. So I have to reuse and borrow alot of my things. I have several things that I’ve actually found by the dumpsters, brought in, cleaned up, and using it. But if it’s all you can do, it’s all you can do, right? I am so blessed and thankful, but who wouldn’t want this? Thanks!!

197 Becky September 16, 2008 at 10:32 pm

I just moved back to Oregon from the UK last week. While abroad I got completely absorbed in crafting and spent far too much money on paper, stamps, tools and accessories. Now I am back in my house and have no idea where to put everything (in England my house was tiny and everything just stayed in a corner in boxes – taking over my whole house when i got in the mood to craft). This organizer is like a dream come true – I know just where I’d put it. :) What a fantastic giveaway!!

198 Tracy C. September 17, 2008 at 5:53 am

Wow, this could be the very thing to actually kick start my organization. And a nice piece of furniture too.

199 Connie September 17, 2008 at 6:07 am

I don’t know how you do it, but your prizes are amazing!!!! Hope I get a chance to tell you just how much I could use one of those!

200 Nicki Lundeen September 17, 2008 at 7:31 am

I so need this item. I have been eyeing these for some time, but not in my budget at this time.

I am a HOARDER! I buy embellishments, rubons, chipboard, etc. because I think they are cool, or in style or I have seen someone use the product and loved it. I bring it home and I stick it in a place where I think I will know where it is. Problem is, I have sooooo much stuff, and I save it because it is so pretty and I don’t use it. Then because I can’t see all that I have, I end up buying another one, because I can’t remember that I already bought it! So, I really need this so I can organize my various items, have them within reach in clear containers, where I can just grab, go through it and use it! I probably would use my stuff if I had it within reach! So, please, please, please, pick me!

201 Melinda Wilson September 17, 2008 at 7:40 am

My poor scrapbooking supplies are crying out for help – USE ME! – SEE ME! We have to share space with all those ugly monthly bills, insurance policies and necessary papers that have to be kept for a few years due to IRS requirements. We need our own place to shine and show off. We are tired of being stuck with such ugly, normal bill paying papers!

202 Sally September 17, 2008 at 8:09 am

My mom had to move in with us and now the only space I have for scrapbooking (or any crafting) is my family room. This desk would be a lifesaver! My husband wouldn’t complain about my desk anymore, and I wouldn’t feel self conscious when company comes over. It’s gorgeous!

203 becky September 17, 2008 at 8:43 am

What a terrific idea. I can see so many great uses for this. Right now I’m using an old dresser for storage, but the drawers are so big everything is just piled up in there. And with storage like this, I can definitely find things faster. I have a 10-month-old, and that means limited time – so I need to be as efficient with both time and storage space as I can be!

204 tammy b September 17, 2008 at 8:46 am

omg, you are so cute! i’ve been a regular reader for about a month or so now and have never seen you, so thanks for that visual! i would love, love, LOVE to win this. While i have a ‘storage space’ in the basement for my stuff, i scrap/craft upstairs in the living/dining room. on the dining table. and lets just say, when i don’t have space for storing things while i’m working, it kinda just stays on the table. for a long time. nuff said.

205 Patti September 17, 2008 at 9:10 am

I would love to win this! I scrap in such a small space and really need something to organize all my stuff! This would be perfect. Thanks for the chance!

206 Christa Schoenfeld September 17, 2008 at 10:08 am

Wow! I just learned about you. I have 2 gorgeous little girls who need to have their memories scrapbooked. This would be awesome to go in the office. I could actually accomplish something without having to look through all of the little boxes that are scattered around.

207 explore academy September 17, 2008 at 10:11 am

We have a lot of craft and art supplies and a very messy basement. The mini cabinet would make us all very happy, especially the children who come to our house for art camps!

208 Melissa September 17, 2008 at 10:39 am

I love this… the black one would be perfect in the living room. I would be able to scrap and still be a part of the “action”. My crafty stuff is all over, including the kitchen, dining room and stashed under the coffee table. This would be a great addition in my house. Great blog. I love the clipboard that you covered.

209 Ami September 17, 2008 at 11:32 am

Oh…I so need this item!!! I am VERY hard-pressed for storage of ANY kind, let alone storage for something that I LOVE and need to do (scrapbooking and cardmaking!!!).
I hope that I can be one of the finalists!!!
Have a great week!!!
Glad that I found your site!!!

210 keandra September 17, 2008 at 11:36 am

i think i hear angels singing! how could an admitted container junkie not love this?

211 Kelly Braund September 17, 2008 at 11:52 am

Wow, what an awesome prize! I think I should win because i’m in the middle of reorganizing my studio right now and have been dreaming of these for weeks! I would love to have one, but can’t afford to buy one right now. It would really help me organize my space.
Thanks so much for the chance!

212 RhondaT September 17, 2008 at 12:01 pm

I would love to win this wonderful organizational tool. I have 2 boys and I am so far behind in scrapping. I would love to put this in the sun room and have all my scrap supplies in one spot, and maybe it would even work for some of my boys’s other craft projects, or their drawing paper, don’t know if it would be good for their polymer clay but…I would just love to win this!

213 Megi Jones September 17, 2008 at 12:35 pm

I could really use something like this. I don’t know that I deserve it the most or anything like that. I’m just your average stay at home mom with two little girls trying to keep up. I haven’t even begun their baby books as there are only a couple hours in the day to scrapbook when the girls are sleeping and by the time I get everything out, I have to put it all away again so they don’t ruin all that I have already. We recently made a big move and left our house up for sale in a very unstable market and anything free is always considered a blessing.

214 Teryn September 17, 2008 at 1:00 pm

With my little one about to become mobile I need this more than ever! Our home is small and space is scarce so my scrapbooking products are hidden in various locations throughout the house. It makes completing my pages tough. I’m thrilled with the idea of being able to organize and store everything so neatly. I’ve even picked out the perfect location for it in my living room! Pleeeeeaase!! Pick Me!!!!

215 Patricia September 17, 2008 at 1:26 pm

I would love to win this giveaway. My own craft room looks like it exploded…therefore it doesn’t seem to get used too much. I think this would completely fix the problem.

216 Katie September 17, 2008 at 1:34 pm

With a small house and 4 kids (all under 7) I need a place to put my crafts that they can’t get into but also where I don’t have to take hours getting everything out and then putting it all away. This would be great. Thanks.

217 NANCY D. September 17, 2008 at 1:46 pm


218 Kerry G. September 17, 2008 at 2:24 pm

I would love to win this because my craft supplies are supremely disorganized. I have cardboard boxes full of mini-albums, plastic crates full of fabric, and piles of paper all over my room. I would love to have one central ORGANIZED home for everything. It would make me a calm, happy, and productive scrapper.

219 Amy V. September 17, 2008 at 2:28 pm

This mini-box looks amazing. I have looked at their ads in the back of CK magazine for years now. I have two little ones and we live in a small, old house. Before we had our little ones, I used one the bedrooms as my scrapbook room. I had shelves and draw units, etc. Everything was at my fingertips. When I had my daughter, I had to give my scraproom up for a bedroom. And while I can’t think of a better reason to lose it, I miss it terribly. I have stuff crammed in drawers in the family room and laundry room. I have a small table set up in the living room that I have claimed as my scrap spot. Having this type of organized storage in condensed form would be a dream. I could have everything in one spot and neatly close it when company comes over.

Thanks for hosting such an amazing giveaway. I hope you will consider me for one of the finalist.

Amy V. in OH

220 Liz Memmott September 17, 2008 at 2:30 pm

i could be a finalist.
Please pick me !

221 Shawna September 17, 2008 at 3:14 pm

Oh my word. This would change my life. We are a family of six in a three-bedroom home. I want to craft every spare moment that I have, but I spend all of my time lugging all my supplies to the table, looking for something, then packing it all back up before our next meal time. It’s too much work and certainly not enough fun at all!

222 Lori September 17, 2008 at 3:22 pm

This is the best giveaway! Here’s why I need it:
*violins play in the background*
I have five kids, *sniff* four of them are boys.
They’re great kids, but when you get four boys together, the testosterone-destructo-force is virtually unstoppable. In a nutshell, they can be mischievous. As a result, I have decided to put all my crafting-scrapbooking-couponing stuff in my bedroom where it is safe, along with everything else I hold dear.
The downside: There’s no room for it! My bedroom is being swallowed up by this every-growing craft corner! Minibox…saaavvveee me!!!!

223 Elizabeth M. September 17, 2008 at 3:36 pm

This is an absolute DREAM prize! You are going to make someone a VERY happy scrapper!!!!!!

224 Jill September 17, 2008 at 3:54 pm

These storage boxes are amazing and it would truly be a dream come true to win it. Thanks for making it possible!

225 Liz September 17, 2008 at 6:00 pm

My husband has been on me to “organize” (but he really means purge) my scrapbook area. This would totally help me “organize” (but I really mean hide) all of my goodies ~ and that would make both of us happy! What an amazing giveaway.

226 Nancy September 17, 2008 at 6:09 pm

Oh my, I didn’t know they made these in a smaller size! My organizing systems have included plastic drawers, closet organizers, IKEA rails, the list goes on, all of which has spilled from part of the living room into the dining room and onto systems hanging on the powder room door. How wonderful to use something actually made for scrapbooking!

227 Nicole September 17, 2008 at 6:09 pm

Oh I so need some of this. I don’t think that anyone can have enough storage for all the wonderful scrapbook stuff out there.

228 Carrie September 17, 2008 at 6:26 pm

Our house is extremely small. My “craft room” is currently my dining room. However, we are about to become foster parents in 6 weeks. Which means we must convert the dining room (aka craft room) back into the 2nd bedroom. Which also means I will have ZERO space to store my craft supplies. I haven’t been able to figure out what to do, and we have NO money to spend on something to keep it all in. This handy dandy little organizer would be a God-send.
Thanks for doing this giveaway! I’m excited for whoever wins it!

229 Susan S. September 17, 2008 at 6:44 pm

I would absolutely, positively love to win this prize. I have high aspirations to scrapbook regularly, but the organization and clean-up hold me back. If I would win this I would tackle the scrapbook for my sixteen month old. I would get past the day of her birth! I would be “over the moon” if I would win.

I most likely did not do these rules correctly, my head is a whirl wind and just found the blogging world two months ago, I have not blown up my computer yet… but the “tag” this and that and drag this or that is confusing, and copy a what??? give me scissors and glue and i can do anything…I just came back from HURICANE EVACUATION , and it looks like IKE hit my table. with this niffty table i would not have to worry about where my precious stuff went …hubby has been home for days and while he picks up the debris outside i was given the orders to declutter the inside…yes, it took a hurricane to get my house clean…good luck picking a winner because i didn’t even know what a uri was?….just asked the hubby and with rolling eyes he told me…

231 Tami September 17, 2008 at 7:10 pm

A friend emailed me the link to your blog saying, “You’ve GOT to get over there and leave a comment with your story.” So, here goes….I work for a non-profit United Way agency that strives to help new international students adjust to life in the US while they are attending school. Often, these students bring along a spouse and sometimes children. Too much of the time, the spouse lives in a tiny, unfurnished apartment with no access to a car or a good way to meet people. They become depressed and it is a horrible situation for them and their student spouse. One of the new projects I hope to start this semester is a free scrapbooking group where a group of volunteers and I will go to pick up these young ladies and bring them to my home, where we will teach them to scrapbook the pictures they will bring with them. I will donate most of the materials and hope to hold small fundraisers to be able to purchase the actual scrapbooks for the pages to go into. The problem is that my condo is quite small and I’ve been very concerned about how/where I would store the supplies and projects. This storage cabinet would be such a wonderful gift to our fledgling program! I am so hopeful that just this little bit of American crafting/scrapbooking will be something that they will take home with them when they leave and when showing their friends and families the scrapbooks, people all over the world will have a better understanding of America and our beautiful country!
Thanks so much for doing this…..crossing my fingers and toes…..Tami

232 JoanBallanger September 17, 2008 at 7:49 pm

This would be better than any Christmas! I am the most unorganized crafter. My paper is in one room, my stamps are in the basement, my punches ( I think) are in the dresser in my son’s closet. Winning this would be wahoo! My three sons would be so happy. They get tired of looking for things! Thanks for hosting such a great give away. Congrats to the winner!

233 Rachel Bright September 17, 2008 at 7:52 pm

Hmmm, I didn’t see my first response post, so I’m trying again!

Oh how I would love to have this! I’m a stamping scrapper… you know, scramper :) and right now I’m living with embellishment overload. Okay, when in the store, you never have enough embellies, but once you get back to the house there’s suddenly nowhere left to put anything! My birthday was June 25th, and my loving husband promised me 2 relatively cheap desks from IKEA. I’m still crafting with absolutely NO CRAFT DESK! We don’t have a truck to pick them up with, so I’m still stamping on my craft room floor. :( oh how I would love to have a desk!

234 Heather in Texas September 17, 2008 at 9:29 pm

Would love to win this extra storage/workspace.

235 Kelly Semerad September 17, 2008 at 9:30 pm

What an amazing giveaway! I’m the mother of 3 busy, creative girls and a new baby boy. What would be better than a MiniBox to conveniently store my supplies for stealing those few quiet moments of MY OWN to play?! I love how it all folds shut and looks like a nice piece of furniture, making it suitable for “decorating” almost any room while secretly storing everything a gal needs for stamping/scrapping/crafting sanity. What a great design! I even have the perfect place for it. When can I pick it up? :-)

Thank you for such a great giveaway!


236 Yvette West September 18, 2008 at 2:47 am

What a wonderful and amazing prize! First off, I am a devoted crafter–paper, and other! And I have a very patient, tolerant, and indulgent husbnd–but he was just quoted yesterday as having said (in my absence of course) “I’m tired of this craft stuff everywhere! I don’t believe the ‘a creative mess is better than idle neatness’ crap.” Of course, he is really tired this week, and a little stressed out, but…between my soon to be 13 year old daughter (following in her mother’s footsteps), and me–poor man! We live in a little old house built in 1917, that has absolutely no storage! Not a broom closet, or coat closet, or linen closet to be had. I try to utilize everywhere square inch of our tiny house (which I believe I have nearly done!)–but my craft area is always a flaming nightmare. I have dedicated a corner of my living room as my “work” area, but it is always a disaster because my storage is not adequate! So…my stuff migrates to the table. And my poor husband suffers on a daily basis pretty much because he can’t even eat at his own table!

So, this would be a true blessing for everyone in my home! Mostly my poor husband though. Thank you!

237 Becky Garrison September 18, 2008 at 5:46 am

What a wonderful product this is! Most everyone who scraps would love to have it, I’m sure. My reasons, well, I’m space challenged and budget challenged, and I’ve done a pretty good job of organizing, but if I had this little gem (and I have the perfect spot for it, too!) I would be able to take the stacking bins out of my closet and use it as a closet once again! In a small cottage, that would always be a good thing, lol! Thanks!

238 Pam September 18, 2008 at 6:25 am

This beautiful organizer would be absolutely PERFECT for my scrapbooking and crafting needs! I love it so much (already) that I would seriously decorate my future craft room (I have an unfinished basement, but not for much longer!) AROUND the Mini Box! Just this last Saturday my darling sweet, and not very patient husband told me it was time to take my craft stuff and organize and clean it up “or else get rid of it all” (GASP!)… Oh, I hope I win (or at least get the opportunity to win!

239 Shari September 18, 2008 at 6:39 am

oops!!! forgot to answer why i should win this!!! :) :) :)
hmmmmmmmmmmm…i think i should win because i would make such great use out of it!!! :) :) :) it will bring me so much happiness…and i could use some cheering up right now…having another surgery soon!!! :) :) :) but most importantly, i think i should win it because i r-e-a-l-l-y want one!!! :) :) :) LOL!!! :)
pick me!!! :) Pick Me!!! :) PICK ME!!! :)
shari :)

240 Kit Rice September 18, 2008 at 7:23 am

This is SOOO what I need. As a mom of three, who used to be darn creative two kids ago, somewhat creative one kid ago,but recently noticed my juices were not so flowing any more, I’ve decided to take back my creativity! Get my groove back, so to speak. The problem isn’t my time, it’s my organization…or lack thereof. This system would solve that problem and my creative juices would flow freely and projects would get DONE!
Thank you for the opportunity,

241 Sarah September 18, 2008 at 8:01 am

I can’t believe you are giving away one of these! I love it! I hope I win!

242 valerie September 18, 2008 at 8:20 am

What a fabulous assortment! Would love to have this :)

243 Jessica September 18, 2008 at 8:28 am

I love to be organized and can’t start a project until my area is neat and clean. I live in a tiny two bedroom apt. with my husband, almost 2 year old old daughter, and a baby on the way! My craft area is currently a folding table in my bedroom. With the new baby coming, I could really, really, really use one of these to keep me organized and be able to create fun crafts like I so much enjoy doing.


244 Laura Plunk September 18, 2008 at 9:28 am

OHHHHH I so need this system to get me organized, HELP !!!!

I will post a link on my blog !!!!!!!

245 Shirley Hodge September 18, 2008 at 9:30 am

I just love boxes, any kind of boxes and I have found that even if I get a box with no intended purpose it is soon full of something that needs its own home. This would be the ultimate home for so many things that are now strewn hither and yon. Just the idea of getting so much organized in one place gives me the goose bumps. Almost as good as chocolate, just a smidge under.

246 Myssie September 18, 2008 at 9:40 am

Wow! What an awesome prize!! I coiuld really use this storage box because I don’t have any time of storage system in place for my craft supplies. My supplies are just all over the place in the basement and when I need something, I have to go digging for it! It is very frustrating! Thank you for the chance to win.

247 Valerie Sorensen September 18, 2008 at 9:55 am

What a cool thing to give away. I’ve never seen anything like it before. I am currently getting a room set up as my craft room and I could really use this! I hope I win!

248 Libby September 18, 2008 at 9:57 am

Like a lot of people, we have a pretty small house and don’t have an extra room to devote to crafting. I’ve been storing all of my crafting supplies in closets and cupboards and pulling everything out onto the dining table when I want to work on a project (which means moving everything out of the way before the next meal).

There is a little corner in our basement laundry room that I have recently carved out as my own. My husband was going to convert an old armoire into a crafting armoire for me to use, but we can’t get it down the basement stairs (it’s too tall).

So, I REALLY need the minibox. I need it so that I can finally keep all of my crafting supplies in one area and be able to keep things out in the open for more than a few hours. And I need the minibox because it would do wonders to spruce up my depressing basement-laundry-room-turned-crafting-area. And, thirdly, I need the minibox because it will actually fit down the basement stairs.

249 rebecca September 18, 2008 at 10:15 am

I would love to be able to organize my growing scrapbooking supplies! They are taking over my basement and I would love to be able to keep them upstairs. What a neat cabinet!

250 Ronni Clarke September 18, 2008 at 10:30 am

I have been called and organizing freek at times, my my organizations seems to go in spurts! It seems i normally spend more time organinzing my stuff than actual working on my projects. I think that this woudl solve a lot of that probelm and allow me to really create! This is Fabulous!

251 Becky September 18, 2008 at 10:54 am

I would LOVE this. My room is constantly disorganized because I don’t have a lot of room-barely big enough for my table! I spend more time cleaning up than I do actually scrapping!

252 Christi September 18, 2008 at 12:00 pm

This is TOTALLY calling my name! My new years resolution for 2007 was to be “more organized”. Not so much…hasn’t happed…yet! This would be a great way to get it FINALLY started!

253 mikki September 18, 2008 at 12:16 pm

Holy Cow! That thing is amazing. I could SO use this wonderful organizational tool.

254 Annalisa September 18, 2008 at 12:36 pm

My sister is Rana R….she totally deserves the minibox. Its a really cool thing and I’m already saving to buy one for first aid supplies and emergency gadgets, and one for scrapbooking of course…so many uses! And if I win, I’ll send it to her anyway, IKE really trampled over her yard and don’t want the same to happen to her all her scrapbooking stuff! Smiles! Annalisa

255 Laurie Stache September 18, 2008 at 1:40 pm

This would look perfect in my house!! It’s ge-or-gous, and since I could never afford to buy it, pick me! Thanks for the opportunity, not only of possibly winning it, but getting my supplies organized!

256 Carrilyne September 18, 2008 at 3:10 pm

I totally need that thing!! I have four children, and only my first one has an actual scrapbook! I never get out my scrapbooking stuff because I have to set it all up all over the kitchen table, then the counters, not to mention all over the floor! Just looking at that cool organizier makes me want to get going on scrapbooking again! Thanks for this oppertunity!

257 noel holley September 18, 2008 at 3:27 pm

I am a complete organized wanna be! and i love to scrapbook! Unfortunately we live on a grad student income (negative income that is;) so i come up with unique and cheap ways to be organized… but that usually comes in the form of ways that aren’t very practical. for example, all my current sewing and scrapbooking and craft things are organized in lots of little baskets/bins/boxes(you name it) at heights that neither my kids (4,2,6months) NOR I can reach. which makes it difficult to actually partake in my “mommie activities”. sooooo, I know in a totally selfish way that i would really LOVE and appreciate this mini box, and am so glad that i’m not in your place to have to pick a recipient!

258 Nancy September 18, 2008 at 4:05 pm

Currently my scrapbook items are stored in a large metal cabinet. It is difficult to know what I have on hand and I sometimes duplicate purchases simply because I cannot find my first purchases. With this wonderful Mini Box I could organize what I have and use my materials and time effectively. I think having this marvelousMini Box storage and organizational tool would greatly increase my scrapbook joy and productivity. Thank you for offering this marvelous giveaway!

259 Julie September 18, 2008 at 5:52 pm

What an aweseom giveaway!

With five kids in our house, we can use all the organization that we can…..our older girls love scrapping with me, so we usually have a mess when we are crafting together!

Would be fun to have a home for some of our goodies.

Thank you so much!

260 judy brittle September 18, 2008 at 5:59 pm

This is so wonderful! It would be a dream come true. I have been having a really hard time trying to stay organized and I just have piles of boxes all about my room. I go through them try to organize it starts getting late and there I go again putting everything back in the boxes. Whoever wins is going to be so lucky! I’m just glad that I have a chance for this awesome prize. I want to just say thank you!!!!! Good luck everyone!

261 Becka September 18, 2008 at 6:01 pm

WOW!!! This is amazing. It would be so great to win this since I scrapbook in my bedroom (i still live at home with my parents) and have like no space! All my beautiful paper and tools are smashed in plastic bins under my desk. YUCK! This is just too awesome.

262 Kathy September 18, 2008 at 6:05 pm

Awesome piece of furniture!!! And what a joy it would be to have this amazing Mini Box to keep my many tools, embellishments and papers organized. I know that it would assist me in improving my creativity and productivity by having everything I would need to complete pages and entire album at my fingertips! I wouldn’t have to search the entire house to find where I had stashed that particular paper or embellishment to finish a project. Thank you for giving us all something to dream about for the next few days!!

263 Linsey September 18, 2008 at 6:46 pm

Holy Crap! I think this is probably the coolest blog give away ever!!! How exciting!!!

264 Anne September 18, 2008 at 6:55 pm

That is seriously cool. I’ve never seen anything like it. I love to be organized, and paper organization is a challenge for me. If I had that, I would never be disorganized again.

265 Amy Vaughn September 18, 2008 at 7:06 pm





This is awesome! I did’nt even know something like this existed! This is perfect for all my scrapping! My husband is deploying to Iraq for 7 months and crafting is what passes the time faster for me. I would die to have this!!! :)

266 Misty September 18, 2008 at 7:13 pm

Oh my!!!! I have never seen your blog until today…but boy did I picka a good day to find it. I need that like you can’t even imagine!!! I am already short a bedroom for one of my boys! Maybe next year we can afford to add on. Let me know if I need to do anything elso to qualify! Oh I hope I am a lucky girl!!!

267 Pam September 18, 2008 at 7:24 pm

Pick me , pick me. I want this, I need this!!! It would be perfect for my scrapbooking needs.

268 Joy Gross September 18, 2008 at 7:28 pm

Oh… I think I deserve it… because if you saw my craft room you would cry. : )

269 Heather September 18, 2008 at 7:32 pm

Oh, wow, this would be incredible. I lived by myself in a 600 sq ft apartment, and my craft stuff has gotten pushed to the back of my closet. It’s hard to get to, impractical, and totally inefficient. If I had this snazzy piece of furniture, I could actually have my crafty stuff accessible so that it could be used! :) What a novel idea!

270 Lyssa September 18, 2008 at 7:34 pm

Ok where should I start? I have been scrapping and crafting for about 5 years now. It was around when I got married, which usually happens. We were poor and still are! We finally are in a 3 bedroom apartment with 2 kids so our third bedroom is a office/guest room/craft you can imagine how much space I have in there for my stuff. This would be the ultimate solution! I would absolutely DIE if I were to win it. I sure hope I do!

271 Karen September 18, 2008 at 7:35 pm

I would be so happy to have this as I am in desperate need of organization!!

272 Laura Skog September 18, 2008 at 7:41 pm

So I was posting away with a witty comment as to why I should be the winner of this awsome, amazing, answer to my prayers item and my finger hit something and I was sent back to the home page. I don’t know if it posted or not. Sorry if it did. So any way pick me please!!!!

273 Jamilyn September 18, 2008 at 7:49 pm

My poor scrapbooking room is in desperate need of this! I could finally get rid of all my boxes, crates, and multiple drawers piled in my scrapbooking room!! I would finally know organization again and in turn, successfully finish a page without pulling my hair out!!!

274 Rebecca Bishop September 18, 2008 at 7:52 pm

Wow! What a giveaway :) This is a perfect giveaway for me for all my crafts and constant projects that I have going on. I would have to say that one of my biggest frustrations with scrapping and projects is the mess and cleanup and keeping it away from my 2 year old…so this would be perfect to help :)

275 Bree September 18, 2008 at 8:01 pm

Oh wow! That is awesome!! I would so loooooove to get more organized with that!!!!

276 ratty September 18, 2008 at 8:11 pm

how exciting! i know exactly who i’d love to give this to!!
thanks for the opportunity :)

277 Kim Hopkins September 18, 2008 at 8:46 pm

What an AWESOME organizer!!!! I can’t believe that I could win such an AWESOME tool! I am a 41 yr old mom of 4 children that just spent the last 5 years going to school to become an RN. I just took my state boards yesterday and am anxiously waiting to see if I passed. Winning this would be the icing on the cake! Pleaaasssssssseeeeeeeeeeeee pick me! I need the help!!!!!!!!!

278 Tammy September 18, 2008 at 8:47 pm

I have a spare room that we literally cannot walk into. It has quilting stuff in one corner, scrapbooking stuff in another. I tried to make it my craft room but just cannot organize it. THIS WOULD BE AMAZING TO WIN.
And…..I think my husband would be just as excited as me!

279 Sarah September 18, 2008 at 8:54 pm

WOW! This is incredible. I would love to win this because my scrapbooking/card-making stuf is so scattered in different boxes and bins. It’s be nice to have a cabinet with it all. Such a nice giveaway!

280 Katie September 18, 2008 at 9:07 pm

Oh how I could use this! I’m currently living at my parents house with my husband and twin 20 month olds while my husband finishes full time grad school. We live in the GARAGE and have no more than 500 square feet we get to call our own. I have been on a crafty spree the last year or so and have tons of crafty items that need a home but currently reside in at least 4 different locations–one of which always ends up being my bed. My parents are going to be so glad when we move!!

281 Laura September 18, 2008 at 9:28 pm

I can;’t believe this is a giveaway. Having something like that would change my life. In my house I have NO storage. I love to do a variety of crafts and sewing projects. At the moment my things are scattered all over my house in various bedrooms, my laundry room (which is closet size) and in my garage. Most of it is my baby’s room which means if I have forgotten to get something out ahead of time then I risk waking her up to go rummage in the dark to find it. She usually wakes up as I am opening the door to her room. Some is in my room along with my husbands computer desk such as my sewing machine and a plastic storage container. To have one thing that is cute and would hols so much would be fabulous and prevent my being unable to work on a project because I did use enough foresight. I would love to win!

282 Natalie September 18, 2008 at 9:53 pm

Oh wow. I think I’m all out of luck but I would be the happiest girl in the world if I won this!!

283 Carla Griffith September 18, 2008 at 9:57 pm

OMG!! That would so help out with some major organization issues with my scrapbooking. Right now it is in totes with lids that just sit on top because their so full. I would just die to have a place for everything. To do my scrapbooking I have to remove everything or dig and dig. It takes hours to complete just a few pages. That would be such a lifesaver.

284 Noreen September 18, 2008 at 10:18 pm

I love knitting and crochet but by the time I find what I need my girls need me and I have to put it all away (I have everything in large rubbermaid totes. I also just started trying to make my girls hairbows. I never can finish one since I am again digging in totes looking for what I need. I really could use this wonderful Minibox

285 Tiffany September 18, 2008 at 11:28 pm

Oh wow! What a fabulous giveaway! I’d love to win this b/c I’m a type-A personality that must have everything in its place and this fits the bill. My craft space is in our home office which is in such disarray right now. Hubby and I are trying to figure out how to fit everything in the one room and this scrapbox would be perfect. Thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful prize.

286 tiffany pettey September 19, 2008 at 12:09 am

short and sweet: i have too much junk laying around and this would amend the problem

287 Carlie Morgan September 19, 2008 at 1:50 am

This is a great giveaway! I would love to have a unit that will store everything in one place. Right now, I have everything everywhere. This will create more time to create, versus time for searching.

288 Lydia Fiedler September 19, 2008 at 5:38 am

I think I will tell you why I SHOULD TOTALLY BE THE WINNER in a Mini Box Haiku:

Mini Box – you are
So perfect for a Virgo
Like me. Please pick me.


289 sheila September 19, 2008 at 5:56 am

I need this “big time”. As someone who is just starting, I have a little bit of
everthing …. everwhere. This would be a “big” help in getting me organized.

290 Beth September 19, 2008 at 6:11 am

WOW! What a great giveaway. Thank you!

291 Jauna September 19, 2008 at 7:14 am

This Truly is an amazing giveaway. I really do like you blog. This is my first time visiting it but I really am enjoying it. I love the product reviews you do along with of course the giveaways, I mean who doesnt LOVE giveaways? I really enjoyed your post about getting toddlers to eat to, it has ideas i’m going to try today.
Anyway onto the reason for this comment. I would LOVE to win this MiniBox. I am a stay at home mother of 3 so far, ages 4-10 months and they get into everything. Right now my crafting thigns are spread all over our place. I have to go on a hunt to find it, Its always a long process and by the time i find it all I’m exhausted and I’m not able to complete all the crafty goodness that I wanted to do if any. I wind up using the entire nap time trying to find my things and then try to put it up to use the next day but by then its been moved and separated again. I have no place that is “MINE” for my stuff instead its just where ever it happens to get put. I crave my own space. Somthing I can say is mine and is off limits to everyone else. I’m sure anyone who is a mom can agree with me. Sometimes you Just need something that is YOURS that no one can take from you, a place that makes you feel important and valued, a place you deserve for all the hard work you do all day with the children. Especially on days (like everyday) when you tell yourself, that you obviously cant have anything that is yours, usually after finding something you were looking for to work on and it wanders off in the hands of a child. and right now i dont have that and i so desperately NEED that. I NEED my own spot, my own storage and work area. I NEED a place I can call mine so i can be ME and not just Mommy. A place that reminds me i’m more than that. I know exactly where I’d put it and i’d use it several times during the day. I love the fact that this can kind of close up and hide the drawers from tiny little exploring hands. I think I could even store some of my fabric in the bigger drawers to keep out of the hands of my 2 year old how claims they are her blankets and baby blankets. I’d have a great place to put all my scissors, needles, glue gun, paper, markers and tiny litlte crafting odds and ends (aka choking hazard) out or reach. I would love to win this it would be a HUGE lifesaver in my house. I’m just grateful for the oppurtonity to possibly be considered to win such a great product. Thanks!

292 April May September 19, 2008 at 7:17 am

This is exactly what I need!

293 Amy September 19, 2008 at 7:17 am

I would love to win this minibox. i am really cramped for space in my current scrapbooking space. And that thing looks fantastic!

294 Kim DiNapoli September 19, 2008 at 7:43 am

Ever since my friend Leslie purchased the original scrapbox I have been DESPERATELY wanting one for myself! However, trying to save to put two kids thru college makes it financially impossible and living in a home that already feels to small makes it physically impossible! This mini box would be A DREAM COME TRUE on both counts and my family would be forever grateful if they got their dining room table back!! :)

Thanks so much for the opportunity!!!

295 Leigh-Ann September 19, 2008 at 8:03 am

WOWSERS!!! I am in LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEE with this thing already! I am a Creative Memories scrapbooking consultant, but I really lack at the whole organizing thing. I never have enough time to craft b/c I am always searching 3000 different places for my stuff! I need this item to make my life all put together and so that I can scrap those wonderful childhood memories before my brain loses them as my children grow! Here’s to winning!

296 Melonie September 19, 2008 at 8:16 am

I would love to win this amazing organization system!

297 Debi September 19, 2008 at 8:22 am

What a fantastic give away…would be great to have…

298 K. Lanae September 19, 2008 at 9:11 am

After seeing this giveaway on Tip Junkie, I knew I had to have it. It is exactly what I have been looking for to help with my love for crafting/scrapbooking. I LOVE making things for other people and especially hosting little get-togethers with family and friends to craft/scrapbook. This would make my life so much easier to function in our tiny apartment. Thank you for being so generous in your giveaway! Everyone here really appreciates it!! =)

299 shaina September 19, 2008 at 9:12 am

This is just too cool.

300 Teresa September 19, 2008 at 9:16 am

Now that my kids are all moved out – I can have a craft room again! I need ANY kind of direction in organizing this – I haven’t been able to craft for 23 years since I’ve had no room or have been running around with my kids and taking care of my family. Even though I miss them as they are off to college and attending to their own families, I want a workspace that can be organized and efficient! I love to craft – and this would be a GREAT start to have! Thank you for making this a possibility for someone to own!

301 Linda F September 19, 2008 at 9:18 am

I fyou could see my house, you wouls know why I need to win this. My house is so disorganized right now that my crafting and scrapbooking things are scattered throughout.

302 Brandee September 19, 2008 at 10:28 am

I NEED this!! No seriously, you should see where all my craft & scrapbook things are! (in a corner in my kitchen) I dont have room to put it anywhere else. This would be IDEAL!!

303 Beth September 19, 2008 at 10:32 am

Organized is my middle name, but for some reason, my craft supplies are anything but. I keep my craft supplies in tupperware boxes, which at least contains the mess, but that’s all. When I go looking for one thing, I’m shocked at all the things I find that I didn’t realize I even had! This organizational system is a dream come true. I enter many giveaways but never win anything… this would be a FANTASTIC “first”! :) What a blessing this giveaway is — thanks for giving us a chance to win something so wonderful!

304 Org Junkie September 19, 2008 at 11:31 am

Oh my now that is a thing of beauty. I definitely should have this in my collection because after all I’m the Organizing Junkie lover of all containers everywhere.

So great!

305 Becky September 19, 2008 at 12:11 pm

This giveaway is a God send! I’ll save all the reasons this giveaway has my name all over it for my paragraph in the top 20!!!

306 Kaycee September 19, 2008 at 12:20 pm

Oh WOW! That’s all I could say while looking at those pictures. That is Heavenly :)

I just started my own business making HairBows, HairBow Holders, Bags, Diaper/Wipe Pods, etc.. and you should see my clutter!! It’s terrible. I have been looking for something as wonderful as that to keep all of my supplies in.

Thank you for this amazing opportunity! Whoever wins is sooo lucky!!

307 Nicole September 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm

This is an awesome prize! Thanks for doing the giveaway!!

308 Meshellyn September 19, 2008 at 12:31 pm

I have never heard of or seen such an amazing scrapbooking product! It looks amazing and I can see the clutter in my scrapbooking space disappear. And to think I’ve been considered selling my things to become a digital scrapbooker so I wouldn’t have to deal with chaos! There’s help for me yet! Thank you for such an awesome giveaway!!!

309 Lori L. September 19, 2008 at 12:32 pm

First of all, Sept. 21 is my birthday, but if I need say more :) , then this box would absolutely make me lose my mind with organizational joy!!!!! Thanks for the great give-away!

310 Amber Larsen September 19, 2008 at 12:35 pm

I have a 21 month old and scrapbooking has died at my house. I feel bad that I haven’t even scraped a page since she was born. I live in a very small home, I don’t have a craftroom or even an office, the computer is in my room. So when I do scrapbook its at the kitchen table and my little girl wants to help (can you picture it) it doesn’t work out to well. Then I always have to clean up before I have finished a page. I fill that its not worth it to even get it out. To win this it would really help me out everything would be all together and I would have everything I need and ready to clean up fast. I will dream about it until you announce the winner. Maybe it will be me, then I won’t have to dream I will get to scrapbook. Thanks

311 Donna M Benton September 19, 2008 at 12:39 pm

OH MY GOSH!! I can’t tell you how much I need this work space!! My husband and I share our town home with my youngest son, his wife and their 2 children – ages 4 and 2. Our home has 3 bedrooms, so we gave 2 of them to the kids and their family. My problem: NO PLACE TO SCRAP!! The dining room table is my best bet, but its impossible to work there until after the little ones go off to bed – and by then I’m ready for bed myself!

If I win the minibox, it will go in my bedroom corner, and all the bookcases and file boxes can go away!! I would have a corner of my own!! Please consider me a candidate – I promise I would put this to good use!!

312 Ms.Tee September 19, 2008 at 12:42 pm

My craft supplies are everywhere, and I want so much to finish scrapbooking my son’s stuff. It is hard though, when you have to get it out and leave it on the kitchen table! Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful giveaway!

313 Megan September 19, 2008 at 12:43 pm

I would love to win this organizing system… my apartment has my craft stuff everywhere, and this would be the perfect way to get some much needed order in the 2nd bedroom (our office / my craftroom). And it would make my hubby happy, because there would be less stuff everywhere! Please randomly choose me! haha

314 theMuse September 19, 2008 at 12:46 pm

If you ever seen my makeup stash/collection you’d know I need this! WOW! Do take a look at my makeup collection and you’ll see exactly what I mean!

I think I can literally fill this up which is why I want to win hehe!

Here’s to hoping I win :)

315 Jenny September 19, 2008 at 12:55 pm

Oh, please pick me! I keep my scrapping supplies in a little corner in my bedroom. I need all the help I can get in keeping my products contained in this one little space. I love this case and it matches my white desk so perfectly. I think I missed my calling as a professional organizer. I consider it my other hobby, next to scrapbooking of course. I typically try to find containers around my home to corral my supplies (I’d rather use my money for more paper and stuff) but I have always wanted a cabinet specifically made for scrapbooking supplies. Please, please, please pick me! Thanks for having such a fun giveaway.

316 Michele September 19, 2008 at 12:56 pm

Unbelievable! This is the ultimate in crafty-organizers! I am blessed with 3 children and loads of great pictures/momentos, but lacking a space to work when I finally get the chance! I might actually get caught up with my children’s scrapbooks if I were to win this handy-dandy organizer! Thanks for the chance! Keeping my fingers crossed!

317 Kelly September 19, 2008 at 1:10 pm

Hi, I would love to win this system!! not for scrapbooking stuff, for sewing stuff! I would love to be able to organize all of my sewing supplies. Right now my sewing area is a MESS and it would be totally awesome if everything had it’s own little home.

Thank you for the chance to win!

318 Larra September 19, 2008 at 1:21 pm

Woa! What an amazing giveaway! I absolutely LOVE to be organized, as you can tell from my blog. It’s one of my life passions! This organizer would just be heaven for me. I have a small office for my photography and design supplies, so this is where I squeeze in my scrapbook papers, tools etc. It would be so awesome to have a scrap box specificially designed for these items. I hope I win!

319 Julie September 19, 2008 at 1:22 pm

OH MY!!! That is gorgeous! I am finishing my basement and all my crafting stuff has been packed away untill it is done next month!!! I would LOVE to have this to put all my goodies in. From the looks of it I might even be inspired to create something after it is all organized!

320 Kimberly Collins September 19, 2008 at 1:22 pm

Winning this product would really help me to make the most of my space in my apartment. I love crafting with my 6 year-old daughter. We live in a small, 2 bedroom apartment. Right now, all of our crafting supplies are stuffed in a hodge podge manner in my closet. It’s hard for my child to get to the supplies. Often, they just sit back there and we forget about them because they aren’t easily accessible. This product would give us a place to keep them so that they could be accesses at anytime. It would allow to have a decent place to organize my supplies instead of having them in so many different containers scattered around in my already cramped closet. We can’t afford to buy anything like this on our own. i am a full-time grade student, I work, and am a wife and mother. Plus, with all of this, we have little time to enjoy crafting together. this would allow us the opportunity to spend more quality time doing what we love instead of digging through trying to find what we need.

321 monique September 19, 2008 at 1:23 pm

I am just about finished building our new house and I will have in it a CRAFT ROOM all to myself…………………I NEED THIS!
I have been drooling over these for quite a while

322 Shelly September 19, 2008 at 1:30 pm

I have six children (including 5 boys age 6 and under!) and keeping my craft supplies folded away would be the most amazing feature to me! I can’t even imagine folding it up…coming back…and everything is still where I left it! Ingenious!

323 Marty Walden September 19, 2008 at 1:33 pm

I love this organizational tool! I have a small scrapbook room and it would help so much. I can’t scrap unless I’m organized!

324 Julie B September 19, 2008 at 1:44 pm

I would love to win this! I have two small girls that I would love to record their special memories but I rarely scrapbook because I don’t have the space. I worry that my babies may come across a small item that I accidentally dropped and swallow it so I store all of my craft items in the utility room. When I get the time to craft (after the babies have gone to bed of course) I rarely make use of that moment because it is such a chore to dig it all out and I would waste all of that time digging for what I needed instead of actually crafting. This would be lifechanging for me. Thank you for offering such a wonderful giveaway.

325 Inna September 19, 2008 at 1:46 pm

This is really cool!
I home school my two daughters and this would be a great solution to organize their school and craft projects.

326 ashlyn September 19, 2008 at 2:13 pm

I live in a small studio, which can quickly become a disaster zone. So it is imperative that I keep everything organized. It is already a luxury to purchase craft supplies while working my way through graduate school. This oranizer would be wonderful to have. Thanks.

327 Julie September 19, 2008 at 2:17 pm

Wow – what a great giveaway. My scrapbook room is going to go bye-bye pretty soon as we are hoping to have another child soon. All of my scrapbook supplies will then go to our tiny office that I will share with my husband. This would be a huge help as the office is already cramped as is.

328 Sandra Hogan September 19, 2008 at 2:21 pm

Amazing, wonderful, and priceless is what I think of this supreme organizer! I’ve always had a difficult time keeping my newly started hobbie organized!! This would be absolutely perfect! My husband is always so funny when I drag my supplies onto the dinning room table. Then I remove them for dinner and place them back there soon after. He laughs and has brought me rubbermaid tubs, which is a sweet, but inadequate gesture. I would love to have a better organizing system!!!! With the new baby and my class of first graders….I really need something like this. My children and class is hoping for the best!

329 Andrea Phillips September 19, 2008 at 2:22 pm

Wow! This is EXACTLY what I have been needing for my craft room. Right now my supplies are stashed in a closet and actually having space for this is not a problem. The supplies are in a tackle box :o) and traveling organizer so having a mini-box would be perfect! Here’s to hoping I can be a top 20!

330 Brandi Mincey September 19, 2008 at 2:26 pm

I would love to have all my crafts organized in one central location. I just took up sewing and think this would be a great place for that stuff as well! I love that it can close, to keep little fingers and hands out of all the drawers when not in use!

331 Kathy September 19, 2008 at 2:30 pm

That is too good! I need to see one in person. I try and try to find a way to control all my jewelry making pieces and haven’t found one that works for me. This looks like it would and on top of that it is beautiful! (I have tried some not so pretty ways to control the clutter, let me tell you.)
While the big one is beautiful it would definitely close in an area, but one or two of the minis would be wonderful and you would have a great display area on top!


332 Heather September 19, 2008 at 2:49 pm

This is the most AMAZING give-away I’ve ever seen. Wow!! I’ve entered several contests and always been a little disappointed that I’ve never won any of them. Winning this would just make my year! I haven’t crafted in far too long because I currently keep my supplies in a closet and have to get it out and set it up on the kitchen table to get things done. And then I need to have it all cleaned up before going to bed so that the little ones won’t get into it the next morning. Frankly, it’s not usually worth the effort. This would help soooo much. I even have the perfect spot in my house. I am hoping to win, but just might have to consider saving up to buy one if I’m not lucky enough to be picked for the give-away.

333 Kim September 19, 2008 at 2:52 pm

WOW…i would be honored to be in the finalist list to win this AWESOME blog candy! I could really use this in our super small apartment!
Hugs~ Kim

334 Janelle September 19, 2008 at 2:56 pm

That looks like just what I have always needed but never knew existed.

335 Michelle Chaney September 19, 2008 at 2:59 pm

i have been looking for something like this forever!! I have asked my huscand to make something like this also but he has not had time. he works 3 jobs so that I can stay at home with our 2 kids. This would be great way to be able to get some crafting done without having my kitchen taken over by my craft stuff.

Thanks for letting me know about this product!!

336 Jen D. September 19, 2008 at 3:06 pm

This looks amazing. What a wonderful and generous give away. I will definitely have to blog about it.

337 Michelle September 19, 2008 at 3:10 pm

As soon as I saw this I knew I just had to try and win it. I scrapbook(ed) in the dining room and am as organized as I can be with my current set up – however, my supplies are housed in a different room. I have a 16 month old daughter and have only found a chance to scrapbook three times since she has been born. It is such a chore to “dig” everything out. I miss my hobby so much….it was such a piece of “me”, a way to express myself and find myself. Real “me” time and it’s like I don’t get that time anymore because of the effort it takes to get my supplies gathered and organized.

338 Lisa F September 19, 2008 at 3:33 pm

I lie awake at night stressing about what to do with all of that scrapbook clutter in my bonus room upstairs. I also teach flute lessons up there. And for the last two years I have embarrassingly drug students up there to practice not to be disturbed by my six children (ages 2 to 12). I had a goal to have it immaculate by the time spring came. That obviously didn’t happen. Summer came and Fall is now here. I cannot find the time nor the ideas to coral all of my junk. This piece of furniture would be the answer to my dreams. Instead of lying awake at night, I could be snoozing away anxious to get back up to my projects that lay in waiting.

339 Aimee September 19, 2008 at 3:42 pm

I just found you… and I am glad I did!
I am so unorganized yet so full of ideas. The result is that I don’t know where to turn first when I am inspired. When I am able to find all my supplies, the muse often has left. A place for everything and everything in it’s place is a dream come true.

340 Sarah September 19, 2008 at 4:06 pm

WOW!!! This is amazing. I serioulsy could use this. My scrap stuff is all over—I try so hard to be organzied and it just never seems to happen. I think this is the KEY to my success!!!!!!!

341 Jenn September 19, 2008 at 4:29 pm

Wow… maybe with this, hubby would not threaten to clean up my scrap area with a match anymore :)

342 Richelle F September 19, 2008 at 4:53 pm

I’m always looking for better ways to organize my scrapbooking/sewing/craft stuff. This would be so awesome!

343 Jennifer (momof four) September 19, 2008 at 4:57 pm

What a great giveaway. This would be fantastic to win. I have a sewing/craft room with my own makeshift storage system for all of my things. THis Mini Box would be a lifesaver! I think it would help my sanity!! I posted about your giveaway on my blog.

344 Melanie September 19, 2008 at 5:04 pm

What a great give-away!! I would love to win this! I love to organize and would love to put all my craft supplies and my two daughters craft supplies in this. Right now we have them scattered throughout the house in different containers, it would be awesome to have them all in one place and a little workstation to do the crafts at.

345 Forgetfulone September 19, 2008 at 6:43 pm

I think I should win this prize because I have such a need. First of all, I love to be organized and stay organized, but with my family of six, my craft space is always getting infringed upon. As soon as I set up a space, someone needs it for something else. This would give me my own space. I would love to be able to have all of my supplies together in one room where I could actually sit down and get a project done. Thanks for hosting a great contest!

346 Tiffany September 19, 2008 at 6:49 pm

Mmmmm, that would be a wondrous setup in my home, which severely lacks organizing cabinets and such! Please consider me for your blog giveaway! And come check out my blog!!!

347 Dana September 19, 2008 at 6:53 pm

This is amazing! I am trying to scrapbook more so I can preserve memories to share with my husband. in Jan. he will be deployed for the 7th time in our 12 years of marriage. If I am organized, scrapbooking is easier….and I’m more likely to make and send him cool stuff with pictures of our 2 kids. He has missed a lot in their lives and photos and scrapbooks are how we stay connected. But digging everything out of the closet is hard! I don’t have the time to constantly pull everything out and put it away AND have time to craft!

This would be amazing to have for my children as well. They love to make things with me and then they would have a place to keep their belongings together and organized….teaching them to be organized and crafty!

348 laura September 19, 2008 at 7:05 pm

I would love to win! The girls and I are in a small apartment and it would be wonderful to keep all my crafting supplies together… They are 16 months old and I still haven’t finished their baby books!!! This would be such a blessing and it’s a pretty piece of furniture to boot!

349 Gina September 19, 2008 at 7:47 pm

I need this because all my scrapbooking stuff is piled into several old totebags shoved in the bottom of my coat closet! Please help me!

350 Amber September 19, 2008 at 8:03 pm

omgosh this is the most beautiful thing Ive ever seen! I totally need this because currently my massive load of scrapbook merchandise is swamped into a one foot wide, one and a half foot deep cabinet, fifteen boxes in the closet and randomly throughout any free drawer in the house… needless to say; SO UNORGANIZED. Being that scrapbooking is my only release from school and works monotony I would definitely love to add this to the apartment! pick me! pick me!

351 Katie Brown September 19, 2008 at 8:25 pm

That looks amazing. My crafting area is made up of old-school folding tables, baskets, and stacks. But it’s the heart behind it that matters, isn’t it?

352 Jami September 19, 2008 at 8:28 pm

Love it!!! Love to have it!!!

353 Brenda T. September 19, 2008 at 8:41 pm

Wow! This looks terrific! Seems like I am always looking for a better way to organize my scrapbooking things. I am SOOO behind on my scrapbooks and it’s probably due in part to the fact that I have a small space to work in and tons of stuff crammed under my table. It looks really nice (pretty I mean) and it’s awesome that you have it for giveaway.

354 RACHEL September 19, 2008 at 9:03 pm

oh my word! what a fantastic product I’ve never seen anything like it before.
If I won it would be such a blessing, I’m expecting a baby (our first!) we live in a 2 bedroom home and our 2nd bedroom is frantically being cleaned out and turned into a nursery which means no more storage and craft room. I’m not sure what I’ll do with all my stuff yet. With a piece of furniture like that to house all my craft items, keep them organized and look good is a dream come true.

355 NerdMom September 19, 2008 at 9:08 pm

So does the link in Contesting Monday count for 10 points;)? So why do I want this? Let me list the ways:
4 kids 7 and under
Homeschool said kids
Craft, Stamp and Scrapbook
Have 5 blogs, Usborne and standard home office paper work
My DH is starting to do more contracting in programming on the side so I have all his stuff around.

Many things to organize, so little space much less to work on. I could put just my stuff in it and put my laptop on top. Ah the dreams this will inspire;).

356 Stephanie September 19, 2008 at 9:09 pm

This is pretty unbelievable…. it will be a blessing to the winner (secretly hoping it’s me;) Thanks for such a great offer!!!!!!

357 Lisa September 19, 2008 at 9:12 pm

These are AWESOME!! I just had to comment for a chance to win!! Thanks

358 Meg September 19, 2008 at 9:48 pm

Are you kidding me!! That thing is FABULOUS!! I would love, love, love it!! I have recently been cleaning up my scrap “area” trying to make it more inspiring and efficient. I would never be able to afford something like that. It’s very pretty and I wouldn’t mind having it upstairs when I lose the spare room to my kids that are growing up too quickly. Ooo!! I am just giddy with excitement!

359 Kerri York September 19, 2008 at 10:01 pm

After 22 years of kids at home, I finally have a room to call my own for scrapbooking and stamping! The kids moved out — one to college and one to her first teaching job. I don’t know where to begin in my organization besides all of the bins I’ve stored all over our tiny house (900 sq ft!) This minibox would definitely give me inspiration to be organized to a T and it would be fun to show to my friends when they come to oooh and ahhh over my beautiful craft/offfice room! Thanks for having the minibox as a giveaway!

360 Leslie September 19, 2008 at 10:19 pm


What an exciting giveaway! I would love to win this table because we just moved and I am in the midst of arranging and rearranging my craft room!

Thanks for all you do ~


361 Michele September 19, 2008 at 11:31 pm

I have all my craft stuff jammed into two large, very nice scrapbooking bags, but it is completely chaos in there. I dream of setting up an organized space to start making projects that capture the joys of my children’s daily lives and special events. Each year I feel more and more discouraged, because how am I ever going to “catch up”?

But you know what? I don’t need to catch up. I want to create keepsakes that will capture the moments they are living right now. I’m trying to create a system for my space just to start somewhere.

I recently bought stackable drawers that I envision filling with craft supplies, so I am motivated to begin! It’s coming together, but there are some missing pieces. Could the MiniBox be that missing piece holding me back from unleashing my creativity every day?

362 Wendy September 19, 2008 at 11:36 pm

Wow, this is exactly what I need! I don’t have a room for scrapping so I have all kinds of scrapping stuff all over the place and it’s such a pain to get out everything and get organized before I scrap. This would allow everything to be kept together and it would be so nice! Thanks for the opportunity!

363 marlene September 19, 2008 at 11:37 pm

WOW what a special give away!
I don’t have a blog but spend too much time enjoying the creativity of others.
Did I tell you I’m organized challenged?

364 Candy September 20, 2008 at 4:13 am

wow, i have never seen a giveaway like this. This is the organized scrapbookers dream come true! I would love to win this!!!!

365 Erin Kealen September 20, 2008 at 4:40 am

This system looks amazing! What an opportunity to keep all my scrapping accessories nicely organized and within reach. Why, my husband would be totally shocked to the point that I might actually get to leave the door open to my “play room!”
Thanks so much!

366 Donese September 20, 2008 at 4:59 am

I am in the middle of re-organizing my scrapbook room using “The Organized and Inspired Scrapbooker” by Wendy Smedley & Aby Garvey. This would be a PERFECT addition to my project!

367 Sarah Last September 20, 2008 at 5:44 am

Wow, that box is amazing. I would really love to get one of those. I have a hard time spending money on my self because I am a SAHM and always buy things for my family first. Organizing my scrap stuff has not been a big priority but I desperately need to.


368 Debbie Jordan Kravitz (Virtually Organized) September 20, 2008 at 5:45 am

OMG! Not only could I use this in my own craft room, but I have an organizing client that would just eat this thing up!

Her craft room is completely scattered with scrapbook supplies. As soon as we finish organizing her office, we’re off to work on the craft room. I would LOVE to win this thing so I can test it out for myself first before I recommend it to my clients.

Thanks for such an AWESOME giveaway! (New here, but I’ll be back!)

369 Justine September 20, 2008 at 5:51 am

That is SO awesome, I have the tiniest office space and I need some serious help organizing. This would be perfect. If I don’t win it I will have to save up for it, but that may take awhile since we just bought our first house last December and there is so much that needs to be done to it and only so much money…. I usually come last! I hope I’m randomly picked for this one! I posted on my blog too!

370 hayley September 20, 2008 at 6:10 am

i love it! this would be so helpful for me because we will be moving to an apartment and this would pretty much be the only way i could have all my crafting stuff out, and not in boxes in storage.

371 allison September 20, 2008 at 6:13 am

I need to get my life together and since my supplies are in my dining room this would be FAB!! Great giveaway – thanks!!

372 busyHSmom September 20, 2008 at 6:34 am

What an awesome give-away! As the home schooling mother of 7 kids who beads, scraps, sews, knits, crochets, etc. I would certainly put the MiniBox to good use. This summer we did a lot of work to our house and in the process I sacrificed my own personal office/workspace/craft room so that my teenage daughter would no longer have to share a room with her 12 year old and 6 year old sisters. Now my crafting supplies are tucked and stashed throughout the house. It would be wonderful to have something lovely and compact to organize all my supplies. Thanks for the opportunity to win something that I would never be able to buy for myself.

373 Omaha Mama September 20, 2008 at 6:43 am

Wow – this is a great prize! I have a very disorganized scrapbooking system and would love to get it all in one place. Not to mention, I can picture using part of this system for my kids’ craft stuff, which is always strewn about. What a beautiful piece of furniture when it is all closed – I would love it in black!

374 carol September 20, 2008 at 7:06 am

This is an amazing opportunity! I would love to win this because my 13 y.o daughter loves to scrapbook, and right now everything she uses is all over our dining room table. It is her birthday next week, and this would be a fabulous gift for her.

375 Malissa September 20, 2008 at 7:08 am

I would love to be entered for this!
I’ve been scrapping since 1997!

376 Kimberly September 20, 2008 at 7:32 am

I would love to win the minibox. We live in a tiny apartment with several kids. My DH works graveyards in public service, so he’s no help… with almost anything! This item would make my life a little bit easier to keep everything in one place and not scattered about! Thank you for this giveaway!

377 Kacy September 20, 2008 at 7:52 am

Wow-zers! This is just amazing. I’ve never seen anything quite like this–small, but still holds everything! Seems like it could fit just about anywhere too. No more excuses for not keeping up with my scrapbooking then, right?? And then the fact that the whole thing is on WHEELS just makes it even more convenient! I can see myself rolling this in front of the TV for a little Sweet Home Alabama and scrappin’ while I watch :)

Thanks again for offering this! Any item that can encourage a person to be more organized is a winner in my book!

378 PamV September 20, 2008 at 8:11 am

I could REALLY use this organization box! I have a small house, 5 kids, and my youngest child is in a wheelchair, (she has Cerebral Palsy) I would love this because I could store more items in one place that takes us less floor space, so we have more room for the wheelchair to travel easier in the home. Much of my scrapbooking items are IN OUR LIVINGROOM! (and we don’t have a family room, or a craft room…just a small house, and we don’t have enough money to purchase organizational tools to help. This would be a blessing for the whole family! My livingroom would also look a LOT better than it does right now! Thanks! PamV

379 Linda Yamakido September 20, 2008 at 8:16 am

What an amazing blog candy,,, the ideal dream of the unorganized. Why I want to win is in the old saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” cause I can’t describe the chaos of my craftroom if I tried. II promise promise to get organized if I win,,, it may take me a year,, but it would making an amazing dent in this space.
Thanks for the great offer of sweets,,

380 Organizing Mommy September 20, 2008 at 8:19 am

Hi, I have a lot of hobbies and crafts, and that storage would help me keep my stuff organized. Thanks.

What an incredible product! I have never seen or heard of this before!

I would love to win the Mini Box because my husband has been very ill lately and I am having to give up my hobby space for a work at home space. This would really brighten my life and give me the area I need (okay want) to craft away and not feel like I’m giving up everything!

Thanks for the chance to win!

382 alli September 20, 2008 at 8:45 am

Please consider me to win the Minibox giveaway. I need help scrapbooking and this looks like the perfect solution. I spend more time organizing and trying to find supplies than I do scrapbooking. It’s supposed to be all about making layouts and creating pages that tell stories and document memories. But I find myself drowning in paper and embellishment chaos, that detracts from my goal of getting photos on pages and pages in albums.

Thank you for a fantastic giveaway and a fun blog!

383 Daurene Turpin September 20, 2008 at 9:08 am

Oh my goodness, I would so love to win one this. If it would help me get organized, I am all over it. I really need help, I have a big room and my stuff is all over the place. I need to condense it, looks like this would help me. Please think about me winning this.

384 Kelly Hobbs September 20, 2008 at 9:21 am

I am a mom of two boys so I am a little out numbered in my house. About a year ago my hubby told me that I needed a hobby. I started to scrapbook hear and there with friends and now I am addicted! I have no space in my home to store my stuff! It is in my linen closet! I need this!!!

385 Kat September 20, 2008 at 9:41 am

Oh what I would do for this fabulous organizer! I love love love to organize. It’s my first love and scrappin’ is my second. I have 3 young kids and a small home (I guess small is relative but I definitely don’t have my own scrappin’ room) and to be able to clean out a closet and put all my stuff in here would be fantastic. I tell ya, fan-tas-tic!

386 Jennifer Clark September 20, 2008 at 9:45 am

All I can say is…WOW!!! What an awesome giveaway!!! I NEED this!! I have 9-month old twins, who are just beginning to explore our house, and the one who is crawling is already pulling things off the shelves in my craft area. This little box would allow me to hide everything away so that they could not get into them!!!

387 Melanie September 20, 2008 at 10:01 am

Wow!!! I love scrapbooking, I love to be organized, and would LOVE to have this so everything would be tidy and within reach! I have been working on reorganizing and purging some closets, my desk, the kids’ school room, etc, and I’ve been trying to figure out how to best organize my scrapping stuff. This would be so MUCH fun!! :)

388 Renee September 20, 2008 at 10:29 am

OMG! I have to have this. I have searched so many times for such a thing, and I’ve never seen such a cute thing! I have to share my office with my hubby and both of my scrapbook tables are homemade by me. This would be a great addition to my tiny space!

389 Lisa September 20, 2008 at 10:38 am

Even though I’m not a big scrapbooker I’ve totally got ideas for organization uses for this! I am in love!

390 CanCan (Mom Most Traveled) September 20, 2008 at 10:39 am

Ever since I had my first child in 2004 I have not done my stained glass and mosaics because it is unsafe to have glass and the grinder where my baby could some how get to them and get hurt. I have beautiful pieces of uncut glass in the attic. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a place to store my supplies and be able to create beautiful stained glass windows and mosaics again. I would like to learn how to make fused glass beads as well.
This minibox would be AMAZING for all of my craft supplies. I know it is intended for scrapbookers, but I would use the drawers for my soldering iron, pliers, wire cuttters, solder, mosaic tiles, pieces of glass, and pattern/project ideas. I could leave the grinder permanently on the surface of the table!
I’m so excited just thinking about it!

391 Stephanie September 20, 2008 at 10:39 am

I am certainly trying to organize my scrapping to be more efficient with another baby on the way. This would do wonders for my scrap space, which is pretty small as it is! Thanks so much for a chance to win such a great prize.

392 Amy September 20, 2008 at 10:48 am

I’ve been trying to organize my scrapbooking stuff for over a year now. It is such a disorganized mess. I think my husband would kill me if I spent $800 to organize everything…I’ve spent enough on the scrapbooking STUFF! ;) I need this! Pick me! :)

393 Michelle Kohlhase September 20, 2008 at 10:49 am

1 busy mom + 2 daughters that are always crafting, scrapping, painting…etc.
+ 3 “normal” brothers = one big messy room,2 sad girls and a flustered mom

394 elsie tan September 20, 2008 at 11:07 am

i would love to win this mini box because my craft stuff is everywhere!!! i would love to be able to organize my stuff so i don’t rebuy stuff i already have. any my husband will LOVE it as much as i do. Hihi Pick me, please if you do my hubby and i will forever be thankful!

395 gaitha September 20, 2008 at 11:08 am

WOW!! I would love to win this because I love to scrapbook and right now I have all of my stuff in little bags inside my bedroom door. I have NO organization space for it, and my 10 month old little girl is drawn to it as well, it is driving me crazy!! Please pick me!!!

396 Suz Gray September 20, 2008 at 11:13 am

I can’t say why I should win it but I can say why I so want to win it……

We downsized houses since our boys are grown & moved out. I had my beautiful purple scrap/craft room that was my new pride and joy as an empty nester…. well one by one they moved back into our little house so I have been “booted” from my haven (which was heaven). 5 adults in a 1600 sq ft 3 bedroom house is a little tight & no room for me…..

I’ve made a little area off the kitchen but it’s mix matched & not very efficient & sure doesn’t look good in the common area of the house….. I hope you pick me.

I’m linking this to my blog

397 Tara September 20, 2008 at 11:23 am

I recently decided I need a hobby again. I am a children’s minister who stays busy with the work I love- helping families in my church. However, after surgery and a 6 week recovery, I realized I had neglected time for me in my life. So, I told my husband I needed to drag out my stored scrapbooking stuff and take this hobby again. The problem is I always make a mess and this is one reason it got packed in the closet. However, with this tool I could have everything at my fingertips but be able to pack away when needed- except more easily this time because it is organized.
Thank you for what you do!

398 Janna September 20, 2008 at 11:26 am

Good gobbledygook! That is fantastic!

I am having serious scrap storage envy right now!

I (and my husband) would love to have this!
(Beads, paper crafts, scrapbooking, school crafts, etc., etc., etc.)

399 BecauseImTheMommy September 20, 2008 at 11:33 am

First time visiter! I LOVE your place! This give away is awesome! I’m a card maker and sometime scrapbooker. What an amazing gift this would be for me to have a little spot in the house so as not to make a mess everywhere else. LOL

400 Carrie September 20, 2008 at 11:33 am

Wow! That is the most amazing organizing tool I have ever seen! We have recently downsized so that I could stay at home and space in this house is limited! This would make my scrapbooking so much easier! I could close it up and open it up when ever I get inspired! I could leave it in the kitchen and it wouldn’t be an eye-sore. I am picturing where I could put it now and dreaming…….

401 Abbey September 20, 2008 at 11:42 am

Wow, this would be wonderful!

402 Becky September 20, 2008 at 11:56 am

I have seen the minibox before and i have always wanted one!! I haven’t scrapbooked in a long time because it is always such a chore to get my supplies out and I feel like I have to put them away again before I get anything done!! It would be so convenient to have something to help me store and organize my supplies more efficiently!! Here’s to hoping….

403 danielle September 20, 2008 at 12:01 pm

That is the greatest storage unit I have ever seen for scapping.

404 MichelleS September 20, 2008 at 12:15 pm

I so love your products and have trying to throw my husband out of his office so I could redo!

405 Annie September 20, 2008 at 12:22 pm

I have to say that I really need this because I scrap/craft in my living room and I need to have thing look great when I’m not scrap/crafting. This is the answer. Thank you.

406 Theresa C September 20, 2008 at 12:25 pm

I would love this I am a beginner scrapper and on a tight budget. I scrapbook in my living room so this would be awesome for that space. I love that it organizes you.

407 Aubrey September 20, 2008 at 12:28 pm

Fabulous product!! This would help me with my home based craft business. I don’t have a craft studio, so I am constantly dragging supplies across the house every time I need to paint an order. This would help me stay organized and it would make my SAHM crafting job much more efficient! Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

408 Marcy September 20, 2008 at 12:44 pm

My current crafting desk is a 2×6 laid across four plastic crates turned sideways. My fabric is stashed in cardboard boxes. My yarn, likewise. The room I use for crafting is small, and this piece would save so much space and keep everything, or at least a lot of things, very neatly organized. Thanks for considering me!

409 Pam September 20, 2008 at 12:51 pm

Wow this sure does look like a great product. I would love to win this product to be able to actually work more on perserving my memories by scrapbooking rather than searching in 4 places for that special paper that I purchased just for the event of my photos.

I have a 4 year and to be born in January. I have had 7 miscarriages in between all this and my doctoring etc has kept me from getting caught up with my 4 year olds book. Would this Mini box magically get me on target….well no. But it would sure help to reduce my searching time and keep those sharp, dangerous supplies concealed and out of reach from the little ones.

Plus, this looks so cute, I may just have to actually paint the walls a fun color in my scrapbook room to show off this organized piece. :-)

Thanks for the chance to win! ;-)

410 Nikki September 20, 2008 at 1:48 pm

I am in the process of organizing my office/craft room! What an awesome give away.

411 Carole September 20, 2008 at 2:01 pm

My scrapbooking room is 8X10- need I say more! HOwever, I would lose some exercise – moving stacks so I can get to the bottom piece I need.

412 Southern Seven September 20, 2008 at 2:10 pm

Oh my goodness! This is the bestest friend to a person that likes to organize. I am in the process of painting a big executive desk that I picked up at a garage sale. I am making a sewing/craft area in a nook in our bedroom. So, this little added piece would just be amazing in my area as an additional area and storage for all the supplies. You are so great to put this out there. I bet you are really pretty, too. Does flattery work? You didn’t mention.

413 Jess September 20, 2008 at 2:21 pm

What an amazing giveaway! I love to scrapbook and do paper crafts in general. I am limited in space, so having a work area that doubles as storage space would come in very handy! Not only would this help with space issues, it would help me be better organize!

Thanks for offering this! This is my first time to your blog and am going to peruse it for awhile. Have a great day!!

414 Kim O. September 20, 2008 at 2:21 pm

My scrapbooking area is basically two old tables and some mismatched bookshelves in my dank, dark, unfinished basement. I would LOVE to brighten it up and organize it with such an awesome system. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Your giveaways are the absolute best!

415 Shilo Beedy September 20, 2008 at 2:27 pm

My brother has actually gotten into beading and does an amazing job with it. I can see this being a really great way for him to store all his supplies away from his playful kitties. I would give him this as a Christmas gift since he a great brother and is always there when you need him.

416 MJ September 20, 2008 at 2:51 pm

I have just come back to Houston with a Hurricane sized mess not only on the outside of my house but the inside too. My craft/sewing room got soaked when a window broke and the 1 and only craft table that I had was broken by the tree that shot through the window. Luckily that was all the damage we had…but ohhh… my poor craft room! My husband said that it was a sign from above for me to organize that room, although he also mentioned that the hurricane didn’t make much difference as it always looked like a hurricane went through it…lol. Needless to say, the MiniBox would be the cats meow in my room and I hope that I get chosen! Thank you for the opportunity to enter this wonderful giveaway.

417 Laurie September 20, 2008 at 3:13 pm

I stumbled upon this blog last night and I really like the mini box. Why didn’t I think of inventing something like that!?!

My husband is in seminary and with space limitations in our home, my scrapbooking stuff is tucked away in the back of my closet. It would take so much time to pull it out and since I have gone back to work (someone has to provide for our family while he is in school), time is limited to get everything set up and put it away. My 11 year old daughter (also an avid scrapbooker) has been begging me to start scrapbooking, but it has taken a backseat to work and responsibility. Having the mini box where we could access our scrapbooking supplies any time would allow us to get caught up on those precious albums.

Thank you!

418 Susan Taylor September 20, 2008 at 3:18 pm

Wow! What a fantastic way to keep all your scrapbooking items organized and within easy reach for use everyday. I would love to have this minibox! My husband and I have custody of two of our granddaughters and I would love to preserve their special memories for them–one is in first grade and the other has just started kindergarten. They don’t have any baby pictures except the few we were sent in the mail, but I could at least make them albums from their school years. Thanks for the chance to enter.

419 Jeannie September 20, 2008 at 3:25 pm

OMG!! I need this so bad. I LOVE to scrapbook and have not done so in 4 years since I have had my son. He is a challenging child and I couldn’t set up any of my stuff and leave it up. It would get destroyed. This would allow me to just close it and leave it there. I NEED to win this. Oh please pick me.


420 Jenn September 20, 2008 at 3:33 pm

OMG! WOW! What a wonderful giveaway. Right now all my craft, scrap, stamp stuff is crammed into a small (under the stairs) closet and I have to share some of that space with my DH’s things. The minibox would be such a great way for me to get organized but be able to hide it wall away at the same time.
Thanks for the chance to win.

421 Emily N. September 20, 2008 at 3:36 pm

I desperately need this because all my supplies are not organized at all.

422 Liz September 20, 2008 at 3:51 pm

Wow…..I found a great blog and even greater……you’re giving away a great scrapbooking set up. Pick me….pick me…. Liz

423 Brooke September 20, 2008 at 4:21 pm

how cool! I would love to have one of those. maybe then i could actually keep my stuff organized and not spread out everywhere! thanks!

424 Angela W September 20, 2008 at 4:23 pm

It would definately be wonderful to win this giveaway! It would totally help me organize all of the new scrap supplies I have been getting! I am running out of space!

425 Julie September 20, 2008 at 4:28 pm

I would love to win this because not only do I like scrapbooking, but I also have tons of other hobbies that I love. It would be really nice to keep all of my atrs and crafts in one place together.

426 Jawan September 20, 2008 at 4:35 pm

I think my husband would be just as thrilled if I won this prize as I would. He would be so thankful someone provided a way to get all my scrapbook/craft clutter off the bedroom furniture! Hee Haw, let’s do that random pickin’ now!

427 alanna September 20, 2008 at 4:36 pm

I could use those to organize all my stuff! I have all kinds of scrapbooking/altered book/collage materials, paints, sewing stuff…etc that would be great to organize it with a minibox!!!

428 Jennifer Brandes September 20, 2008 at 5:42 pm

That is the neatest thing I’ve ever seen. I would love to win this because we are a family of 5 living in a 900 square foot home. My scrapbook stuff is sadly stored in containers, some in the basement and some in the attic. That would fit perfectly in our bedroom where I could have a space of my own to work on our scrapbooks. Thank you so much for offering this give away.

429 Melissa September 20, 2008 at 5:49 pm

I’ve admired this from afar… I am an organization zealot & this work do wonders for my office. Thanks for hosting such a wonderful giveaway!

430 Brook September 20, 2008 at 6:02 pm

I SERIOUSLY NEED THIS MINIBOX!!!! You don’t even understand! I have three little kids 4, 2 1/2, and 10 months! (Yes, that is, one know it all preschooler (who loves to use my scrap stuff for art), one seriously huge terrible two (we call the knob twister cuz he can’t keep his little fingers off ANYTHING! Most of all my scrap supply) and one infant who is crawling to anything that looks remotely interesting (of course…what else, THE SCRAP SUPPLY!). Right now, I just don’t have a great place for any of it, that can hide it away….BUT I think my problem would totally be solved with The Minibox….because it’s a totally cute set up that really doesn’t look like an interesting place for my kids to play…right? I think so! So that’s why I really, really, really need it! Thanks for the chance to win!

431 Kassiah September 20, 2008 at 6:03 pm

Well I am actually ashamed to say this. We have a very small formal dining room, but a huge dining room table. It has wonderful cushioned chairs. At the beginning of the summer, I decided to finally scrapbook the cruise that my husband and I took in 2001. I hardly scrapbook because I have to pull so much stuff out. So I started to pull out everything and I realized that I needed more room. I moved all of the chairs to the dining room table (except 2) to the sides of the room. I also got out my bar stools too. And I put up two card tables and the ironing board in the foyer. And put all of my stuff on top of it. Now, I still have it all out. Covering the buffet and sidetable in the dining room, all the chairs, the tables, the ironing board, and half of the kitchen counter! My kids have to pull out those folding chairs every night for supper! It is sad, and I need a place to put it. And the minibox would be perfect, not to mention a much needed piece of furniture in the foyer (instead of an embossing powder covered ironing board). Thanks!

432 Arin September 20, 2008 at 6:13 pm

My home office/craft area is in despearte need of a makeover. This would definitely do the trick. Maybe, just maybe, I would be able to get everything organized. Then I would remember what I already have and what I need to get.

433 Naomi September 20, 2008 at 6:13 pm

I have so much stuff jammed into my home office willy-nilly and I can never find without a full-blown reconnaissance mission. I need help! The MiniBox would be amazing…

434 Terri September 20, 2008 at 6:36 pm

I am no more deserving than any one else, but would love to have such a wonderful organizing system. An amazing gift.

435 daniele September 20, 2008 at 7:24 pm

Good Night!!! I could use that kind of organization in my scrappin’ life!

436 Shawnea Roberts September 20, 2008 at 7:52 pm

I live in a small house and drag all my scrapbooking out from various places when I scrapbook! This is awesome! This would make it so much easier to organize! Please enter me in!

437 Shaina Herrmann September 20, 2008 at 9:02 pm

I would LOVE to win the MiniBox! Currently, I have no place to put any of my Scrapbooking supplies (and there are a TON of them that have been accumulated over the past 9 years). I also have a list of over 10 scrapbooks that I want to complete within the next year! The MiniBox would be an ENORMOUS blessing! :)

438 Paula September 20, 2008 at 9:04 pm

They say a picture is worth a thousand words and it couldn’t be more true! I have cropping stuff everywhere! You can’t see the carpet for all of the supplies. I am constantly making cards for our church and other people who I learn about from other blogs who need support in a time of need. Boy would I like to organize my things in this little number!

439 mihla September 20, 2008 at 9:18 pm

Wow! I was introduced to your awesome blog and the fabulous Scrap Box products all at once. I love both!

440 Christie September 20, 2008 at 9:23 pm

This is an awesome giveaway! My craft room/laundry room is in need of one of these… It would definitely help to keep things seperated!


441 Missy September 20, 2008 at 9:28 pm

I’m in a small apt with scrapbooking supplies in every nook and cranny I can come up with. I love being organized but would LOVE to upgrade from the milk crates :) Thank you!

442 Kristen September 20, 2008 at 9:43 pm

I am in the process of moving and would LOVE to have this in my new place! I have packed up all my scrapping and crafting stuff and am very anxious to see it again, and putting it all away in a new toy would be even better!

443 :o) Rachel September 20, 2008 at 10:37 pm

Ooooo – pick me pick me! :o) I have been drooling over something like this for a long time!

444 Samantha Pruitt September 20, 2008 at 11:17 pm

i could seriously use this! i can NEVER keep organized, everything is in different places and i can never find everything, and if i do it takes a really long time!

445 Shirl Luczak September 21, 2008 at 12:38 am

Could anything be more cool than this?! Would any of us have any excuse NOT to be organized with this hunk of serious compartmental lustiness? Like guys do with their muscle cars, I could see me steering my captive-audience guests to my craft room to show off this beauty. Yeah, they’ll envy me, alright.

446 Tami September 21, 2008 at 3:43 am

I need this.
Not just a “hey, I really want this!”, but I am talking *need*.
I have 5 children.
That alone is enough to merit winning, right?
But – wait – there’s more!
I had a craft room – for about 1 day. Then our family had an amazing opportunity to have an international college student move in with us (same heritage as three of my children – adopted). I hauled all my craft stuff back out of the room and put it in storage. Less than ideal. Cleaned the room, added the desk and dresser back in.
We wouldn’t want it any other way.
Well, maybe we would want to keep her here AND win this fabulous prize!!!
Thanks for the chance!

447 Nancie Brooks September 21, 2008 at 4:15 am

What an amazing organizational piece. Someone will be very blessed to win this. Whatever craft you do it would keep you organized!

448 Gina Fensterer September 21, 2008 at 4:53 am

What a generous gift to bless a scrapper with! I personally could use it because I scrap in a corner of our playroom, and as a military wife, I can’t build/buy something big with all of our moves. This looks perfect for my use!

449 Sheila Holland September 21, 2008 at 5:20 am

I have never seen such a fabulous give away! I would love to win it because I need help getting my supplies organized. I spend more time looking for stuff than actually scrapbooking. That unit is really something.

450 Brooke September 21, 2008 at 5:25 am

I better save my writing in case I’m randomly picked to be a finalist!! For now, my reasons are simple: I need and want this!!!!

451 tricia welch September 21, 2008 at 5:28 am

Oh how thrilling it would be to have a place to organize everything! I love it.

452 Sarah Rombauer September 21, 2008 at 6:16 am

Wow! This looks awesome. I ditto everyone’s comments!

453 Esther September 21, 2008 at 6:57 am

What an amazing organizing system. With a new baby, I need to make room for her things by moving my supplies from the current scrap area into another room to share with hubby and dd. This will be perfect to contain my stuff without overtaking all th space in the shared room.

454 alison September 21, 2008 at 7:00 am

I would LOVE to win this prize…I have many craft supplies that are currently homeless and in need of a place…and I love containers!

455 Sue HULME September 21, 2008 at 7:25 am

I need to win this because I am the queen of unorganization, and don’t have room to put all my stash away.

456 Kellie September 21, 2008 at 7:44 am

How great is that! It would look PREFECT in my craft room. I’m always looking for new ways to get organized. What a great giveaway, someone will be very lucky to receive this. YOU ROCK!

457 Brenda Clamors September 21, 2008 at 8:05 am

This is an amazing addition to anyone’s scrapbook room. I would
just love to have this piece it would help me get organized and
allow my daughter to have a room of her own (she’s the youngest of 7). Right now it’s just so unorganized & cluttered I need help organizing
it so I can move to a different area in the house. Thank you!

458 Alex Griffin September 21, 2008 at 8:08 am

My wife needs this organizer thing. Or should I need her to have it so I can reclaim some of my space around the apartment. We are looking into buying a house in the next 3-6 months so we need to save every penny we can for that adventure. It would help a ton for our sanity and in keeping the place more organized. She is great at scrap booking and I support her in doing it as much as a husband can.

459 Heatehr September 21, 2008 at 8:38 am

Wow that is the best prize I think I have ever seen. We lbought a small house and I lost a big room when we did buy our own house. I now have a small space and even more storage would be awesome. Plus my 3 yo son loves to play along to with me when I scrap or craft so it would be nice to give him his own storage space too.

460 Anna Tovar September 21, 2008 at 8:42 am

I would love to win this fantastic organizational piece. Whoever wins this will be very fortunate to organize and have a one stop shop to make and design their crafts. Thanks for offering such a awesome giveaway. Thanks.

461 kimberq September 21, 2008 at 8:46 am

Oh!!Oh!!OH!!How fabulous is this organization system?I scrap,craft,and quilt with no real place to call my own….in fact we have not used our dining room because of all of the “scrap”as my husband calls it for a while ..he is trying to build me a room that will be completed this winter.Thank you for the opportunity in receiving this.

462 Angi September 21, 2008 at 9:00 am

I would love this! My new house has a room I can use for crafts, so this would be perfect in there.

463 Shannon September 21, 2008 at 9:20 am

OH MY GOSH!!! WOW! What a prize. I would LOVE to win this. I am an avid scrapbooker and need some organization in my life. If I had this then my kids could use the desk for their schoolwork. Thanks for allowing me to have a chance at winning this amazing prize.

464 Pamela White September 21, 2008 at 9:36 am

I live in a cramped house and have very little space for my craft projects. I would love the mini-box to help me organize my projects and keep everything within arms reach.

465 Casey September 21, 2008 at 10:22 am

I would love to win this so I can clear off the mounds on my kitchen table and start using it for it’s intended purpose! This is about the best giveaway I’ve ever seen! So incredibly awesome!

466 Sally Prokopec September 21, 2008 at 10:30 am

I would love the mini-box because I need to be able to get all of my scrapbooking/crafting supplies organized! Right now they are sucking up all of the space in my spare bedroom.

467 Joye September 21, 2008 at 10:50 am

Holly cow!!! This is great!! I need to win this because I have never won one single thing in my whole life! So pick me…..Please!

468 Karen September 21, 2008 at 11:01 am

We recently moved into a home where, for the first time since I began crafting 15 years ago, I will actually have some space to dedicate specifically for my craft “stuff”! The space will be in our children’s play room, so I have already been trying to figure out how to safely store everything to have it easily accessible to me, but NOT so easily accessible to the kiddos:) I had never seen the Minibox before your blog – but I think I’m already in love!

469 Rebecca September 21, 2008 at 11:06 am

Oh wow, please enter me!! This would be the cure all for my scrappy storage issues. We live in military housing which means NO extra rooms – all of my scrap stuff is in the laundry room – or the little catch all as I call it. This would be a beautiful piece for my living room & functional as well – the hubby would love it too! Thanks so much for entering me, I think this is the closest to an actual scrap space that I’ll be able to claim for several years.

470 Jessica September 21, 2008 at 11:26 am

I love to craft but I have supplies scattered with very limited storage in my house – it doesn’t help that I have a toddler & another baby on the way! Storage would be ideal.

471 Michelle Steffen September 21, 2008 at 11:48 am

How AWESOME is that! I’d actually have motivation to work? Imagine the possibilities… :-)

472 Mariah September 21, 2008 at 11:49 am

I love to srapbook. But it is such a pain to get it all out everytime. I would love to have this organizer for all of my stuff. Please pick me.

473 Stevie September 21, 2008 at 11:51 am

Wow, this is amazing!! I can’t believe you’re able to give away something so cool. I would so love this, my scrapbook and craft stuff is stashed all over my house because I haven’t figured out a way to keep it all together. This minbox looks like it could hold so much stuff and not take up too much space!

474 Deborah September 21, 2008 at 12:14 pm

Shoeboxes do in a pinch, but this would be FANTASTIC!! I could FINALLY get organized!! The trouble is, even though I label the shoeboxes with what’s inside, I end up spending more time finding and sorting supplies than I do actually crafting. So this would truly be a useful item to me.

475 Ruth September 21, 2008 at 12:30 pm

Winning this would be an absolute blessing at just the right time. My husband and I have difficulty having children, so after my daughter was born we were just so happy to have even one child! A little over a year after she was born we were shocked to find out we were expecting again!! What a miracle…unfortunately we have no room in our little house and we can’t move because of the market…to top it off we weren’t planning on getting pregnant, so we don’t have maternity insurance (so all of the storage ideas I had for my scrapbooking supplies we aren’t able to afford). The mini-cube looks like it would be the perfect size!

476 Carolyn Clifton September 21, 2008 at 12:59 pm

I would so love to win this great organizer. As much as I would love to keep it, I would give it to my BFF for Christmas. She is really, really in to scrapbooking,and I know that she would absolutely love it! Please pick me!!!Thanks,

477 kathy pease September 21, 2008 at 1:17 pm

i so need some organization in my life

478 Kellie September 21, 2008 at 1:21 pm

I would love to own this fine piece of furniture. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. I had no clue they made such a thing. What a great giveaway. YOU ROCK!!!!!

479 Jill Bishop September 21, 2008 at 1:57 pm

What an AMAZING giveaway!!! My scrapbooking suppies are in such need or organization and this would be perfect. I barely have time to sit down and scrapbook and when I do I find that I spend more time looking for the things I want to use, then actually scrapbooking. What a great way to get organized!!

480 Brenda S. September 21, 2008 at 2:07 pm

This is amazing. I love anything that helps me be better organized and I love that someone took the time to design and market this. Thank you.

481 Laura September 21, 2008 at 2:18 pm

Amazing! I’ve never seen the minibox before! What a great organizational solution. Thanks for your blog!

482 Annabelle@Christian Momma September 21, 2008 at 2:34 pm

I need to win this. All of my crafting stuff is in the basement that is cold, damp, and dark. I can’t really craft down there. I haven’t been able to work on any of my scrapbooking stuff or do many crafts because it takes me so long to bring the items up stairs so I can work on them. If I had this upstairs, I could easily work on my scrapbooking stuff a lot easier! Please pick me! My boys’ scrapbooks depend on it! :D

483 Veronica M September 21, 2008 at 2:56 pm

OH MY WORD. I just saw this in the scrap mag and said I’d LOOOOOOVE to have this–What a fantastic giveaway!! You’re so unbelievably generous and awesome. Hope I’m in the lucky 20 :)

484 Christina Ankeney September 21, 2008 at 3:00 pm

It’s funny that this should be a prize that can actually be won…just yesterday my husband and I were lamenting the fact that as you walk into our house the first thing that you see is my HUGE desk covered with kids papers and bills mingled with all of my scrapbook stuff…we decided that it’s the one thing in our house that says “white trash” :-) When I scrap I have to scrounge around under my desk for stuff that I want or search for it underneath all the papers…I’m overwhelmed because there isn’t enough space for everything! I am searching for (and would love to win) some kind of organizing pieces that will help make our house less “trashy”.

485 Jennifer @ All Things Frugal September 21, 2008 at 3:04 pm

Oh my! I would love one of these!!!!
I need some serious organization when it comes to my scrapbook supplies!

486 Kristi Scherzinger September 21, 2008 at 3:08 pm

Wow, this is a great and kind offer. I was looking at this product and found your blog. I was curious how people liked it. Hmm…I would never have to scrap on my bedroom floor again while pulling supplies out from under my bed….

487 Bethan Rowell September 21, 2008 at 3:23 pm

That is a great piece of furniture. I would love to win that. I just recently moved into a house where I can actually have a craft room and have been scouring websites trying to find great organization pieces but they are just so expensive. I would love to have that in my craft room. I would actually start crafting and scrapbooking again. It would make it incredibly fun and easy. Thank you for the opportunity to win this

488 Marjorie September 21, 2008 at 3:34 pm

That looks like an amazing and very useful organizer. Hope I am one of the 20 chosen!!

489 Kat September 21, 2008 at 4:04 pm

What an amazing giveaway!! Perfect for keeping little fingers out of expensive supplies!

490 Laura September 21, 2008 at 4:14 pm

I am a mother of triplets. In my spare time I scrapbook to keep sane. Unfortunately my office is a bit cluttered and need to be organized. I would love to have this organized cabinet. Happy Scrapping.

491 Lucinda Fish September 21, 2008 at 4:15 pm

Oh my goodness! This looks like an amazing way to store your craft supplies! I do an in-home daycare and so all the rooms are full (especially during nap time) of kids, kids stuff, toys, etc. My craft room is where one of the babies I watch takes her naps, and so things have had to get shuffled around quite a bit. I would love to win this, and believe me, it would be put to good use! :)

492 Rebecca September 21, 2008 at 4:23 pm

Amazing prize. Thankyou.

493 Jennifer H September 21, 2008 at 4:47 pm

This looks SO great. I’ve always wanted a craft room to do my scrapbooking in.. However, since I don’t have enough space at home for a whole room, this would definitely give me a much needed spot to keep my scrap stuff organized !! Thanks for the giveaway.

494 Keri Garcia September 21, 2008 at 5:00 pm

oh the possibilities if i had such a creation in my life.

495 jennifer September 21, 2008 at 5:13 pm

I could soooo use that. I hope I win!!! Good luck to everyone.

496 Tina September 21, 2008 at 5:42 pm

That is beautiful!

497 Laura McKinstry September 21, 2008 at 5:48 pm

Wow, what a fabulous prize. Thanks for the opportunity. This is exactly what I need, although can’t afford, so I am happy to write you a paragraph if I am selected. Thanks again. Take care.

498 savvysuzie September 21, 2008 at 5:51 pm

Wow. Oh wow. I NEEED this kind of organization! Between all the crafts that I do (Crochet, scrapping, card making, stamping) I have TOO MUCH STUFF and barely enough space to fit it all, something like this would take the pain out of trying to find supplies in my house! Help me Obi-wan! You’re my only hope!

499 Audrey B September 21, 2008 at 6:02 pm

Oh my god, sorry gosh- you MUST pick me- what an unbelievable prize!

500 Becky Lesher September 21, 2008 at 6:25 pm

OMG…….This is awesome. We just finished our basement and we made me a “little” craft room. There is not much room for my scrapbooking and jewelry making and this would be PERFECT!!!!!!

501 Heather C September 21, 2008 at 6:39 pm

This is one hot prize, I must say! Wowzer! Thanks so much.

502 Heather S September 21, 2008 at 7:09 pm

This is such an amazing giveaway! I love it!

503 Nikki Hogsed September 21, 2008 at 7:26 pm

WOW! I never even knew this thing existed. If you could see the tiny closet I am using to store all my craft stuff you would know why I would want and NEED this. We live in a little house that is old and therfore has little storage space. This would be a lifesaver! Great idea and a generous giveaway.

504 Yvette September 21, 2008 at 7:34 pm

The minibox looks amazing. I would love to have one for my craft room, which is no longer a craft room, but a school room. :o) (We homeschool.) School supplies have taken over my cabinets and I no longer have a home for my supplies. This could be a place of my very own.
Thanks for hosting this giveaway,

505 Cindy September 21, 2008 at 8:34 pm

This is so cool! I have some of my craft supplies under my bed upstairs and some in the bottom of the entertainment armoire downstairs. I usually end up crafting on the floor next to the armoire because after I’ve lugged everything from upstairs downstairs, I’m too tired to then lug everything from the armoire to the dining room table. I often don’t craft at all, even though I love doing it, because my back will hurt from hunching over on the floor and it is such a pain to pull everything out and put it back. Having a place to store everything, all organized, and a place to sit would be so awesome. And it would be small enough to fit in my breakfast nook!

506 Chris September 21, 2008 at 8:44 pm

I wanna win!

507 CArla September 21, 2008 at 9:36 pm

I would love to have this! I do not get to craft near as much as I want because I have to keep everything locked up in the basement away from the 6 kids. I owuld love to ahve someting I cuould put it in , that looks nice and close it away.

508 Jo Ann S. September 21, 2008 at 9:38 pm

As an avid Scrapbooker & Stamper for the past 5 years…this is an absolutely wonderful concept for the needs of storage! Not to mention the ease in having a perfectly laid out system allowing access to all your crafting accessories…PLUS a work top table feature…all in one! It’s just a crafters dream come true and would work perfectly in my craft room, too :)

If I won this item…I’d do cartwheels of joy!!!!!!!!!!!

509 Lily September 21, 2008 at 11:13 pm

I am so disorganized. I spend so much time looking for things and give up most times because I get distracted or forget my original mission. I would love to be able to have a place for everything.

510 Charlene Kuser September 22, 2008 at 12:07 am

I really need to organize and this sounds like a good way to do it.My
crafts and scrapbook stuff is here and there and everywhere.Thanks
for this wonderful contest,Nice blog

511 Eryn Balch September 22, 2008 at 6:48 am

OMG – I am LATE! b/c I had 3 stamp classes, my mom’s surprise b-day, and then I spent all weekend trying to organize my craft space, and I still have TOO MUCH STUFF! I soooo NEED the MiniBox, and shipping to the East Coast is outrageous, so I’ll never be able to buy it on my own… sigh. I have 10 brothers and sisters, 3 nephews plus 1 on the way, and a gorgeous 2-year-old of my own… so many beautiful photos that I haven’t put on paper b/c I’m too busy trying to stay ORGANIZED! haha If you pick me, I’d be FOREVER, FOREVER grateful and a reference for both Vanilla Joy and the MiniBox til the end of time!!! Keep up the GREAT giveaways!!

512 Leah McDonald September 22, 2008 at 7:35 am

So awesome, oh to be that organized. I have to pack all of my stuff up every time I’m not working with it…so fun for it to all have a permanent home!

513 Aimee September 22, 2008 at 8:55 am

I could so use this. I am so disorganized when it comes to my scrapbooking things. This would help out a lot!!!!

514 Mama Koala September 22, 2008 at 8:57 am

Oh My! I should win this prize so my closet can be, um, a closet again. And, I’d love to be able to find items more quickly by being so organized!

515 Kelly H September 22, 2008 at 9:00 am

What an awesome organizational tool!! I really need that to get me kicked into gear!! We are doing some rearranging in our home due to a new baby and if I don’t get organized, we will won’t have any where to live–haha!!

516 Janelle D September 22, 2008 at 9:07 am

This would mean I wouldn’t have to store all my papers and supplies in various under the bed totes and in every closet in the house!!! My crafting supplies are currently all over the house, and, it seems, whenever I try a new project, my house looks like a tornado hit because I’ve torn it up trying to find what I need. Thanks for this opportunity!

517 Donna September 22, 2008 at 9:19 am

Wow… what a wonderful solution to our craft! Such organization would save sooooo much time when trying to locate just the right sticker or brad! I always have the best laid plans, but never seem to complete them but if I were that organized I would definitely get to them. I am still trying to scrap my wedding album (33 years later) as well as my grandbabies! ugh. This is a great GIVEAWAY that I would love in my home.

518 Julie September 22, 2008 at 9:50 am

I would love to win this because I am a bit of a train wreck when it comes to keeping my scrapping supplies organized. I have stamps in ziplog bags, photos shoved in an armoire drawer, and my “workspace” is my kitchen island. I hardley ever use my brads because it’s too much of a hassle to go looking for them, and I haven’t even allowed myself to use ribbon because I have no good way of storing it.

Having this system will make me a better scrapper — I’m convinced of it!!

519 Jen @ JenuineJen September 22, 2008 at 10:25 am

I would love to win this!!!

520 Hopefulmom September 22, 2008 at 10:30 am

Wow! What a fabulous giveaway!

I spent years as a Creative Memories consultant helping other scrapbookers get organized. Now I am taking the time to get myself organized. I would love to have this lovely, functional piece of furniture to hold all my supplies at my fingertips. I need to catch up on my family’s albums and prepare lifebooks for the two kiddos we are adopting from El Salvador!


521 Jackie September 22, 2008 at 11:09 am

I would like to win that scrapbook organizer!

522 Jackie September 22, 2008 at 11:12 am

I would love to win this organizer…. My comment didn’t come through last if I double post this I didn’t mean to.

523 Jackie September 22, 2008 at 11:14 am

Okay, I’m going t o try one more time to get my comment to show up.. lol! Then I’ll have to give up on entering this giveaway. I really would like to win t his scrapbook organizer!

524 Heather September 22, 2008 at 11:19 am

THANK YOU for offering such a great giveaway!

Why would I LOVE to win this besides never having won anything before is because I LOVE my scrapbooking supplies. I have a smaller house and so I have nowhere to store things. I have supplies spread from one end to the other and due to this find my self re-buying things because I can’t find something or don’t realize I have it. I have a dresser in the closet I store some things and a cabinet in the garage for some others, but would love a cabinet I could put in my room. It would be great to have a place to call my scrapbooking home so I can actually do just that since right now I put off projects because it all has to be drug into the kitchen table/island and then put back up.


525 Laurel September 22, 2008 at 11:21 am

Wow! I am always trying to organize our “stuff”. With three little crafters (ages 8,7, and 3), and a one year old trying to reach whatever we’re using, we need something that puts it all away! I love that my girls love to paint, scrapbook, color, and do all things crafty, but after they “put it away” I have to try to organize it again.

526 Heather September 22, 2008 at 11:25 am

I would love to win this because I don’t have anywhere to store work on scrapbooking. Right now I have some in the closet and garage, and let us not forget all over the house. My husband would probably fly to you and give you the biggest hug to see my stuff get put away!

I love to scrapbook but I don’t get to very much because I have to do it in the kitchen/island and it then has to be put up. I dream of a place where everything could be instead of everywhere. I also find myself re-buying stuff because I don’t realize I have it or it is hidden somewhere.


527 Summer September 22, 2008 at 12:09 pm

This would be such an awesome spacesaver in my cramped apartment!
I would love to have one of these.

528 Veronica M September 22, 2008 at 12:11 pm

This is the greatest prize ever VanillaJoy!!

529 Mercy September 22, 2008 at 12:16 pm

What an amazing system. With six kiddos, this would help with all the chaotic, yet creative, crafts we do. I haven’t done a scrapbook page in years. By the time I pull everything out, it is time to put it all away so little hand can’t disturb. This is a wonderful system to have everything organized and to shorten prep time!

530 Angelic Jackson September 22, 2008 at 12:20 pm

That is just fantastic! My husband was just mentioning that my scrapbook stuff was taking over his office! This is just what I need! GREAT giveaway!

531 Hannah September 22, 2008 at 12:51 pm

WOW! That is an awesome prize and my scrapbooking needs some major organization. Please, let me win! Please, let me win!

532 Anna Peterson September 22, 2008 at 1:42 pm

What a fantastic contest! Talk about a HUGE giveaway!! Wowzers! I would love to win this great prize – should I list why I think I deserve it? World peace! Ha ha. Seriously, I have five little kids in a little house on a little street with a California sized yard. We’re crowded and all my crafty stuff has been relegated to the back corners of my closet, which has taken a toll on the old body gettin in there to retrieve it out. I’ve been eyeing for a while now but could not afford one – I’d love to WIN!!!

533 Shani September 22, 2008 at 2:18 pm

Now that my child is 10 months old, he is mobile and into EVERYTHING, including my scrapbook folders (I currently use file folders – redboys to be exact, packed into a bookshelf) so something needs to change ASAP!

534 Maria September 22, 2008 at 2:26 pm

This scrapbooking station would be absolutely amazing. I’m soon to be a first-time mom (edd 03/05/09) and I want to be able to scrapbook about growing family. I already enjoy scrapbooking now, but it’s so hard to keep all of my paper, stamps, stickers, etc organized and in a way to see what I actually have. If I had this station, then I’d actually get to spend more time scrapbooking rather than organizing. It’s sad that I get so excited to scrapbook something, only to become defeated by the mess. So, please pick me because I’d definitely put this to good use!

535 Amy September 22, 2008 at 2:30 pm

I am SO glad that you extended this so that I can enter:) I would LOVE to win this and my husband would love it even more!! If I win this, he will get his office back!! He is always complaining that I he could work in there more if my scrapbook/craft stuff wasn’t all over the place:)

536 michelle September 22, 2008 at 2:53 pm

thus would be a dream come true!

537 Rachel September 22, 2008 at 3:01 pm

I love to be organized and I have hesitated really getting into crafting because of the amount of pieces involved.

538 Shelly September 22, 2008 at 3:02 pm

I waited for 5 years to get my own crafting space. Although I finally have a little spot in the basement I’m desperate for something appropriately sized to organize all of my crafts. This would be an amazing asset to me!!

539 Amanda Sewell September 22, 2008 at 3:37 pm

I deserve to win this because I desperately need a neat organized way to keep track of all my crafting supplies, my hubby will never EVER agree to me spending that much money on a desk no matter how absolutely amazing and cool it is, I currently stamp and scrapbook on a folding table in my newly acquired office, it wobbles and I need a new desk SO bad, I am due with my third baby in December and there is no way I will be getting a new desk any time soon with all the expenses that come with a hospital stay and a new baby. HELP! Please let me be one of the finalists!!!!

540 Katrina September 22, 2008 at 3:37 pm

Wow, what an incredible give-away! I would SO love to win this! My hubby is in the military and we move every 2-3 years, and some places I’m able to declare my craft section of the house, and some places (like where I’m living now) is so small it’s almost too much of a hassle to try! This craft table would make things so simple! Especially for my dh! (Dont’ tell anyone, but he likes to scrapbook with me sometimes.)

541 Kayce D. September 22, 2008 at 3:42 pm

To win this would be SO awesome! I have so many scrapbooking supplies and not enough space for them all. It would be a great way to get organized and have everything in ONE space! WOO HOO — Thanks!!

542 Dejah September 22, 2008 at 3:59 pm

Oh how I need this, my kitchen need this too!!

543 Teri September 22, 2008 at 4:08 pm

I would love to win this! I love scrapbooking & we’re moving into a new house. I’m determined to keep the house as organized as possible (especially where my scrapbooking stuff is concerned)…I haven’t scrapbooked in months, since we moved in with my in-laws, so I’m in dire need of a scrapping fix!

544 Becca September 22, 2008 at 4:47 pm

Wow, what an amazing piece of furniture. I don’t know how I stumbled upon this blog! I am going to browse and bookmark you! The name of my blog is “Organizational Determination” because I have my mind focused on organizing my life, my home, my brain and my spirit! I wonder if all that is really possible, but something like this sure would help.

545 Oh2122 September 22, 2008 at 4:52 pm

Extra day! Thanks goodness, I thought I had missed it!

This is amazing. Thanks for the opportunity to dream about it even if we don’t win!

546 jennifer September 22, 2008 at 5:09 pm

What a wonderful idea! I’d love to have one – my scrapbooking and beading supplies are everywhere! I spend more time searching through everything than I do actually working on pieces. Thanks!

547 Wendy September 22, 2008 at 6:29 pm

holy cow, i just stumbled upon this blog, and i could not pass up an entry! That thing is SO cool! i am one organized girl, but my poor scrapbooking supplies have been stuck in bins and boxes for 3 years now, all in pursuit of my hubby’s higher education! Oh how lovely it would be to have this neat-o organizer!

548 Julie September 22, 2008 at 6:30 pm

Holy Hannah! What a marvelous idea. Functional….practical….space saving…..time saver…..and organized all in one. Count me in! What busy mom would say no?

549 Amy Wilges September 22, 2008 at 6:42 pm

wowzers! i almost can not imagine owning something so fabulous! as a selfless person i rarely buy myself anything of large value or anything SPECIFICALLY for myself as i often feel guilty. i would love to, just this once, have something like this for myself (see, i feel guilty saying this too). in my eyes this is one of the most beautiful pieces of furniture i have ever seen…to the uncrafty person….they would look at me like i had a third eye. lol i would seriously appreciate winning this!

550 Jean September 22, 2008 at 6:51 pm

wow, what an awesome prize. I would so love to win that. How awesome of you to be giving that away!

551 Sarah S. September 22, 2008 at 6:55 pm

Holy freaking cow. I can’t believe you are giving this away. And I got in just under the wire. SAAAAAWEET!! I am a craft addict. I love all things crafty and I am so excited that I came across your blog by way of this giveaway. How fun. I have 2 kids under 2, I live in the boondocks, and my nearest scrapbooking store is over an hour away. So when I go, I tend to over indulge a little… tsk, tsk I know but the paper is just so pretty and the stickers… sheesh, I just can’t help it. I could really use my own little special place to hide my stash! I have a private blog that is for family members so I’m not sure how to link you to it and I don’t know if I even qualify but dang it there is going to be one pretty lucky person out there and I hope it’s me. I have told my hubby this is what I want for Christmas however I think it’s out of the budget. *sigh* It would be awesome if Christmas came early. Please pick me!! OH please please please pick me… ok, enough begging.. Thanks for such an exciting opportunity!

552 Rachel September 22, 2008 at 7:35 pm

I would love to win this because I need to get back to my scrapbooking hobby. With three kids I have put a lot of my own interests aside and that probably isn’t good. This would inspire me to get organized and start scrapbooking again. My son is 3 and I haven’t even started his album. Thanks for a wonderful contest. Wow.

553 Danalea10 September 22, 2008 at 7:39 pm

This is a wonderful giveaway! I would love to have something this nice to keep my crafting supplies in.

554 Janet September 22, 2008 at 8:00 pm

Hi! I just found your blog and LOVE IT! I would love to win this, I have a two year old and not started his scrapbook. I have papers, photos, and other supplies I have found on sale are strung all over the floor, in plies on the corner of the office. This would be such a blessing!!

555 Naomi Ockerman September 22, 2008 at 8:07 pm

wow! the reason I would love this is simple…simplicity. I scrapbook in the only space I have room for it. my closet! My husband was kind of enough to move his clothes to the front hall closet so I could convert our bedroom clost into a scrap “room”….and I would love to put a little more organization into my space.

Thanks for the opportunity!

556 RhondaF September 22, 2008 at 8:25 pm

I’m drooling. Hoping I’m lucky number 555!

557 Hilary September 22, 2008 at 8:37 pm

I need this because I know I would scrapbook more if I was more organized…. I’d love to win this gorgeous piece!

558 Amy Beblo September 22, 2008 at 8:39 pm

Actually, I would love to win this for a friend. She had it posted on her blog how much she would love it. I have my own scrapbook room and it is as organized as I am going to get it. I have plastic drawer bins that are fine for me. My friend doesn’t have her own scrap area so this would be perfect. Thank you for considering my request. (I am hoping that it is no coinsidence that I just happened to see it on her blog tonight AND the deadline was extended to tonight.)

559 Debra Johnson September 22, 2008 at 8:44 pm

After three years in the mission field we have tons of pictures and trinkets that need to be put into scrap books. The minibox would help save me hours by being able to organize all of the supplies and make working a dream. Streamlining…YES!!

What a generous giveaway! Organization is not my forte. I would love to have those many hours back that were spent looking for things. Perhaps I could even use it to hide my favorite treats from my kids!

WOW! This is an amazing giveaway. I would LOVE this as I am always trying to reduce the amount of space I take up with my scrapbooking supplies (I also am a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator). I currently share a space with our office area but may have to minimize once we have a third child. I could never afford anything like this. In fact, most of my things are in boxes and not easy to access since I can’t afford nice organizing drawers, etc. I hope I win!

For my 50th birthday a month ago, my girlfriend and fellow SU demo offered to help me clean and organize my craft room. I have never before seen such a wonderful piece of furniture–so beautiful and functional. It would put the fun back into my stamping. If you saw my room you would cry.

I am a mother of 2 that LOVES to scrapbook, but has no room to really do it. Recently I got to move into my husband’s home office, however, there still really isn’t space to to anything. I usually take over our dining room table in order to have room to work. That then means one of two things: 1. my kids can get into all my supplies and make a huge mess or 2. I have to work only when they are sleeping and then put EVERYTHING away once they are up. I love having all my things organized but without spending lots of money to redo the office with tons of amazing supplies. I am so far behind on my oldest son’s book and really haven’t even started my 17 month old’s so having an area to have everything at my fingertips that can quickly be put away would be AMAZING!!!
