1st RAC Challenge

I will be giving away 5 "Clean Out the Scrap Studio RAC" every Friday of February. I will try and always include one new Fiskars item and I have some new Queen and Co. felt hearts to go in each one. So here is the picture of the first goodie pile.

The Fiskar item will be a surprise each week. I will also be adding a little to the stack as I clean up a little more. Many of the items are new in the package, but some have been used thus the reason it is a "Clean Out the Scrap Studio" RAC.

I'm sorry I can not ship off the Continental USA. If you know someone here in the states that can mail it to you I will be glad to ship it to them and you work it through with them. I wish I could afford to ship everywhere.

One thing I always try to do on Debby's Dare is to leave with a "Gratitude List." Sometimes when the day is off focus, iffy, or just plain bad, I reflect on the positive and good things in my life. In order to participate in the first round RAC, that ends February 1 at midnight, comment here and list 5 things you are thankful or grateful for in your life.

Gratitude List:

1. My mom

2. My camera

3. Fiskateers

4. My Morning Thread on Two Peas

5. God's unrelenting presence in my life.
