    Cool cards, Marie.
    LOVE the "Duvet".

    I received one for Christmas (last year) and it was promoted as "The BEST weighted comforter for BETTER SLEEP"

    Mine weighed in at 25 pounds, and did give a better, deeper, sleep, because as your ATC points out, one can't move!


    I priced them, and those things are VERY pricy!!!!!

    I didn't throw mine out (although I no longer use it) because it makes a fab dog bed.
    Of course, the dog sleeps on top of it, NOT under it!

    Did I mention, LOVE your card.

    Thank you Vicki Z! Mine wasn’t supposed to be a weighted blanket, it was just that heavy! And when we’d fold it back to the foot of the bed in cooler weather I couldn’t move my feet! We’d kept it because it matched the curtains, but it was soooo uncomfortable! GOOD RIDDANCE I say!

    Hi JavaZarf! Enjoy your lurk! I’m thinking of doing another card on coffee mugs. I had one whole kitchen cupboard that was NOTHING but coffee mugs! Four shelves! And we’d got one of those little stands that doubles the space on the bottom one... so really 5 shelves! AND a full shelf in the game room downstairs! That’s 6! And that doesn’t include the ones scattered around the house holding ink pens, plants, etc. oh yes... I could have opened a coffee mug store!

    First I cleared the shelf downstairs, which made room for baby books and school years books that had been stored in my closet to move there, which made room for my sweatshirts on that shelf in my closet! Score!

    Then I cleared half out of the cupboard in the kitchen which made room for the actual COFFEE to be stored there ( what a concept!) and the teapot, steamer mug and other accessories.

    And I still really do have too many coffee mugs.

    And I just bought another one. At Starbucks. In London. As my special England trip souvenir.

    Aye yi yi! I’ve got it bad!

    How to fit that on an ATC?
    Haha!

    Yes! We have lived in the same house for about 17 years. I have lots of storage, but it was all full. Once I made room in my cabinets for stuff that I use I really like it. It is so much more functional. I just don't know why I didn't do it sooner.

    I hear you! You put it away and forget to cull it EVER, right?!?

    15 years here.... that gives lots of time for build up.

    This was the stuff, I cleaned out of my closet. bags of clothers, purses, shoes, stuff I will never use, but thought i might. . For instance the plastic zippered bag that the yo-yos are in . I saved them. WHY? I thought they might be useful. Often they are not. But I put all the loose fabric yo-yos into the 2 bags and gave them away. Before there were in a big huge plastic tote bag, and would get all over my closet. Plastic tote can be seen in photo, it is now full of other things I cleaned out. I bought the tote bag of yo-yos at a yard sale years ago for $1 with plans to complete a table runner or quilt top. YEP never happened. I gave them to a friend. I wonder how long she will keep them.

    Good going Heather!!! I agree, she’ll probably keep them a while and move them along too. It’s hard to park with things that would take a LOT of time to recreate, yes? Even if you’d never WANT to recreate them. Did you keep 1 to make a card for this swap? That would be perfect AND you’d at least have gotten some use from them. Or you could draw one... want to join in?

    Oh yes there are some cute flower ideas to make with the yo-yos. I kept them for notecards or greeting cards or atc cards or to throw away in 3 years who knows.

    I'm struggling with coming up with ideas for this swap. So far I have: candy - I got rid of a bunch of Halloween candy that we never gave out because of COVID lockdown; and 8 pounds, which I happily lost in 2020 but which I have since gained back in 2021 already.
    Can't think of anything else! ACK.

    Candy is a great idea! It’s soooo hard to discard it yet such a bad idea to keep it around, right?
    Congratulations on losing 8 pounds! That’s hard work! Doesn’t it seem like KEEPING it off is just as hard as losing it? Not cool. Grr...
    I’m sure you’ll be able to get it off again. After all, you did it once!

    What about cleaning out your junk drawer and doing a card depicting the things you tossed? In a kind of scientific manner?
    I recently did one like that for a moley swap. Dumped my junk cup and drew what I found inside.

    Here’s a pic. This is 3 pages so of course yours would be less stuff. What do you think?

    Yesterday I tossed the toilet seat with the cracked hinge and bought a brand new one. The fancy kind that can’t slam. Ooh-la-la ...

    The old one be was fine as long as you never tried to close the lid and who wants to leave the toilet open all the time (?) and if someone did accidentally forget and closed the lid it took a lot of finagling and jiggling to get it set back right again.

    Now THAT would make an interesting card!

    This morning I got a cyst removed from my toe.

    Super good riddance! I’ve got some arting to do!

    My cards are done but I'm having trouble uploading a photo. That happens quite frequently for me - does anyone else have that problem?

    Anyhow, my cards are Good Riddance to...
    ...unloved books
    ...Hallowe'en candy no one wanted
    ...clothes that don't fit
    ...8 pounds!

    Sending my cards this weekend.

    Great card ideas EatSleepWriteABook! Congrats on completing! I know you were struggling for ideas for a minute. I did books too! ( I did not do candy.... but I should have. Ack!) some folks do have trouble loading images, especially compressing them. My system is clunky but it works. Would you like me to post pics of your cards in the thread after they get here?
