Grab Bag!

Jasmine and I just stopped by Michaels to find something to craft with. After we checked out the classes (we missed the fondant class AGAIN!), we saw this:
Mystery grab bags for only $2.
Of course we both got one. Here's what I got:

And some glitter I forgot to put in the picture.

I think the coolest thing was this:
Some of this will be given to a thrift store, but I will certainly use other parts of it!

So, I had an idea. All crafters have supplies that you aren't ever going to use. Why not get together with a group of your crafting friends and have a grab bag exchange? Everyone can make a bag of their unwanted crafty stuff to share. Then maybe get a little competitive and have a contest to see who can be the most creative with their new supplies.
Give it a try!

I haven't seen any grab bags at my Michaels before. Hmm I may have to scope it out this weekend and see if they do.

After the holidays I got a few of these and they are great!! That's a great idea to get rid of a bit if your old stuff that someone could use.

As a child, it was hard for me to resist a grab bag. The mystery of it was too great. I like the idea of a craft grab bag swap with friends.

Mine had these too one day, and I grabbed 4 of them. I couldnt wait to open it lol. Inside I received tons and tons of scrapbook paper and booklets.

I kept a wedding album that I want to put together for my hubby for our 2 years, a kids scrapbook kit, and a few pieces of paper.

I gifted several of the other things, and then ended up selling some of the books too for $5 for 4 - so I make almost half of my money back - haha!

I hope they have some more soon!

I do something like this with my sisters every year when we go on a crafting weekend. We call them 'prizes' and make up games throughout the weekend and give out the prizes.

It is a blast to see what each brings, we had to make a rule to not regift one year as we saw so much of the same stuff and it was apparent that no one wanted it@

Man, now I want to go to Micheals and see if they have these. Great find and good idea on the grab bag thing. I think you could even do this with toys your kids don't use or other stuff.
