Day Nineteen Giveaway Question

Every day the Helping Hudson team will be asking you to comment on a question.
At the end of each day a winner will be selected randomly to receive a small prize of Stampin' Up! Australia products.
This may include things such as ribbon, ink pads or rub ons.
You must include your name in the comment to be eligible for the prize.
Entries will close at midnight and the winner will be announced at noon tomorrow.
Entry is free, but the winner will only have 48 hours to claim their prize.
Unclaimed prizes will be given away in a random draw of all entrants on the 25th.

Today's question is:

What was your biggest craft investment and was it worth it?

We look forward to reading your answer, and please remember to come back tomorrow
for the next question and to find out who won.
As per Stampin' Up! Australia rules, only Australian residents are eligible for prizes.
While we cannot ship prizes overseas, any daily giveaway winners outside Australia have the option of nominating an Australian resident to donate their prize to. :-)

  1. My biggest craft investment was joining Stampin' Up! and you can't measure the worth of meeting many wonderful people as a result of sharing what you love!

  2. My Cuttlebug, and yes it was definitely worth it. I use it all the time and love it.

  3. Apart from joining SU! as Brownwyn said my biggest craft investment would have been my Big Shot! I love it over my old red 'heavy' Sizzix die cutter as it is more light weight (and balanced in weight) and can do so much more, bigger size dies etc etc. I just love it!

  4. OOoh thats a good question. I would have to say Joining Stampin' UP! and all the stuff I have bought along the way! I have made a few Big Purchases over the years that I wished I hadnt, but I dont own one SU thing that I dont love!

  5. For me, since joining of course, was my marker set! I absolutely LOVE them and have no regrets buying them. I am looking forward now to getting all the new colours in the markers to add to my collection. :-)

  6. I just bought a stainless steel kitchen bench to go in my new art studio. I am pretty sure it will be worth it. It will allow me to work standing up as it is hip height.

  7. Similarly to the pp's, joining Stampin' Up! was a big investment that I will NEVER regret. I have met so many genuinely lovely people and been involved in many wonderful events (just like this one!) and all because of Stampin' Up!

  8. I always weigh up the pro's and con's with big investment items - the last 2 have only had pro's so I went ahead and bought them - my big shot and my colour caddy are brilliant, use them all the time!!

  10. Our house - we had to get a 4 bedroom house as there just wasn't enough room in the 3 bedroom for me to have a craft room *LOL*

  11. I am like others - joining SU is the best craft investment ever!!!!!! I have met many great people through SU. My colour caddy and bigshot of course through SU are also up the top of the list of great craft investments.
    Thanks Michelle S

  13. Storage draws for my loose stamps, stamp pad,marker and re-inker storage unit, desk and my Big Shot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Probably my storage unit, but I already need another! It makes such a difference when you know where to find things, and when the kids cant get into anything.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Other than storage - just all the wonderful bits and pieces that add up over time. I tend to buy lots of small things often. The big shot is definately on my to buy list though.

  16. Oh my starter kit for sure! Not the "most expensive" purchase .. but definitely the Biggest and Best lol. I wouldnt miss this for the world!

    ReplyDelete
  17. That would have to be my IKEA office furniture. Outside of storage? Well I'd have to say my LARGE selection of stamps in my lovely IKEA cupboard.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hmmm starter kit and Big Shot and DEFINITELY both worth it. :-)

  19. I repeatedly said I didn’t need a bigshot, that was until a good friend got one and I found myself using it ALL the time, so it's on my next order MUST HAVE list going in on 1st Sep, and yes I'm sure it will be a great investment!!

  20. Storage - I must have spent a fortune over the years on containers, folders, furniture to store all of my paper, stamps, ribbon & inks in - but so worth every cent

  21. i think I would have to say my storage drawers have been my biggest craft investment!! i don't have a lot of stuff but what I do have I can fit it into my storage drawers with regular moving around of things!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I'm in total agreement with the others, joining SU has been my biggest and best investment... Then next comes the big shot & colour caddy, plus all the stamps and other accessories!! Love my Stampin' Up gear!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. Joing SU! and buying the Big Shot, definitely worth it on both counts. Joining SU! means I can share my passion with some very lovely ladies...

    ReplyDelete
  24. My Bigshot! It was TOTALLY worth it. My husband says that if I could I would marry that thing because I love it so much ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. definately my cuttlebug..i love it

    ReplyDelete

  27. Apart from joining stamping-up I have brought many things some of which I still use and some that stay in the cupboard and don't see the light of day. Hether Sherry

  28. like many others my two biggest investments were joining Stampin' Up as a demonstrator and the Big Shot; both were worth every cent and wouldn't go back and change either.

  29. If I were to do a stocktake I am pretty sure my biggest value would be in papers/card stock!!!!

  30. I would have to say becoming a Creative Memories Consultant is way up there. Over the last year or so I have moved more into card making and have gotten a bit slack with my scrapbooking, opps must make time for both. My other fantastic purchase was my SU Marker Set. And I can't wait to add it with the new colours when they are released.

  31. Kicking my husband out of the computer room as I was running out of room for all my stamps, inks, papers etc...was it worth it?.....MY OATH (We had to build him another room)

    ReplyDelete
  32. My biggest investment would be my entire collection of Stampin' Up! products (I wouldn't dare to add it up, it would be too scary!). But, it is worth every cent because I love them and they have brought me heaps of enjoyment and the therapuetic value alone, can't be measured!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes I did have to buy a desk and buffet hutch to put in all my SU goodies. But my biggest SU purchase would be the big shot.

    ReplyDelete
  34. My weekender scrap bag, and YES it was definately worth it

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm going to echo the sentiments of many others and say becoming
    An SU! Demonstrator and my Bigshot. Worth every cent without a doubt!

  36. mine would have to be the room my hubby built on the back of the house just for my stampin Up business. he got tired of me using the dining room and having things all over the house.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I was lucky enough to find a set of architects drawers on Ebay!!!!!!It has 10 drawers and the bad news for my husband was I had an empty drawer when I had sorted and stacked my stamp collection.The good news is I am working on filling that drawer.
    A great investment that makes looking for a stamps so easy......just slide out the drawer and you can see what you have.Time well saved for extra paper cutting

  38. oh boy do i really have to choose something, as everything i have brought has been well worth the expense, i only buy Stampin up products, as it takes out the hard work of matching everything up, but if i had to choose just one thing it would have to be my complete set of markers, they are so versatile
