What a wonderful way to protect our treasured items. This would be the most fantastic item to receive. I could finally create the creative area of my dreams. Thanks for this chance. I love Vanilla Joy!

All I can say is WOW. This is an awesome item. It is pretty and functional. I don’t have to keep the dining room table and card table stacked up with stuff. I would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Jenny M.

AT last! A way to protect all my precious stuff from our rambunctious and inquisitive puppy! I’m sure it would make me more productive and reduce the time I spend searching!

I have so much scrapbooking to catch up on I would love to be able to get it out without tearing up the house and easily put it away this is a great item for that hiding the “stuff” my DH calls it! I normally have all over the house just to do a page or two and then it takes a day just to put it all away and get it out again I would love one!!

I am organizationally challenged. I am a bit of a clutter bug, and I share my scrapping space with the family room. I would love to be able to have places for all of my supplies. I think my husband would post on here for me to win this as well. He would love for my stuff to have a permanent home. Please help me! :-)
