Community Outreach...

My Post on Kijiji:
Help Replacing Scrapbooking Stamping & Related Craft Supplies 

Hello, My name is Tanahmera, (Tamara for short lol), I am replacing my scrapbooking supplies as nearly all of mine have been stolen (for the third time in my life now). My heart is totally wrecked over this, so I need to reach out to my community this time for support because the third time is not a charm. If you are selling any items listed below, please consider selling them to me first. I am not looking for a hand out, just a hand up. I will BUY anything I need that is reasonably priced. I do not expect anything for free. I am trying to stay positive, and refuse to let this keep me down but this time it's exceptionally hard for me, and to ice my cake I am between places staying at an inn right now as opposed to a shelter. Your support and help means more to me than you will ever know. The good news is that by helping me you are also helping others as I have many friends who are also looking for similar things, so whatever I have in abundance gets passed on to help another Sister up in the form of RAKS & SWAPS.

So again, If you have anything you don't want, please don't toss it, think of selling it to me, and send me an email via kijiji and we will work out the details. Note: I do not drive, so pick up is hard for me, but I can pay you extra for your trouble if you can deliver when the weather permits of course. I will be posting this add for a long time, and will be able to make appointments for larger or expensive (multi-item hauls like a craft room purge) in two weeks. If you have a lot of craft supplies you no longer want, I will be happy to buy it all in one shot for a fair price. Please don't dismiss my add as spam I am a real person trying to re-build my life from scratch which Is why I am also providing my blog: and Facebook page: Baw Craftworx so you can see for yourself. I'm not trying to recruit anyone or sell anything. Serious replies only please. I've already received one discouraging email this morning because I responded to someones post who was getting rid of a lot of cricut cartridges, I offered to buy them all at once and my reply from her was just the word Spam. I'm not posting my add, or responding to adds by others to waste anyones time, I am very serious and all help is genuinely appreciated. That said, rather than post a ton of wanted adds I have compiled a list of what I am looking for below:

Ink pads & Re-inkers, (Tim Holtz Distress, Stampin Up, Colorbox, Ranger, Versamark, Staz-On) Etc.
Stamp Cleaner & Fluid
Stamps (rubber or clear, mounted or un-mounted),
Any Stampin' Up Supplies
Anything by Tim Holtz & Ranger
Cuttlebug, Sizzix & other brand Embossing folders & dies,
Nestabilities & similar products,
Cricut cartridges, (I have an expressions machine)
Anything Martha Stewart,
Anything Recollections brads, eyelets,
Ribbon, Lace Toile, Twine, etc
Flowers, (prima, recollections, SU, other brands)
Embellishments, stickers, die cuts,
Storage cubes/bins/totes, boxes, containers, etc
Card stock & designer papers, individual or pads and even scraps :). I am not picky I can work with any medium.
Adhesives, (ATG Refills, dimensionals, pop dots/glue dots, double sided tape, glue sticks/pens etc),
Markers, Water-Color pencils, Pencil Crayons, Gel Pens, brand names are preferred.
Glitter, embossing powders, stickles,
Paints: Acrylic, watercolor, oils, (dollar store paints are fine, I love deco art) & Brushes
Chalks (like stampin up chalks, or even chalk markers)
Any other scrapbooking tools/supplies I have failed to mention.
Craft Books And Magazines.

Thank you in Advance

About Me

My Photo
^ Tanahmera Rutledge^
Alias: Archangel Baw

I am a proud Mother of 3 Amazing Sons :) Prior to my accident, (my oldest son and I were struck by a speeding jeep while WALKING across the street to catch a bus :( ), I was going back to college to get my carpentry degree to work for Habitat for Humanity, however due to my injuries from the accident I can no longer work in that field so I started Baw CraftWorx as a way to continue to give back to others with RAKS (Random Acts Of Kindness) & SWAPS (swaps haven't begun yet),  and hoping to support myself and my sons. The problem is that my exes stole all of my inventory and supplies, so I was unable to continue for a time, I have however been able to replace a great deal of what was stolen, and am preparing to re-Launch Baw CraftWorx in the near future. I'm also an ex Independent Stampin Up & Fiskars Demo & creative coach. I love sharing all of the awesome techniques I've learned over the years with others. I Love All Things Witchy & Crafty & Those who create them xoxo:)

Blog Pimpin In Progress

Well, I just noticed the other day that NONE of my blog images were showing up :( *SIGH* So I thought Since it's blog pimpin' time again anyway, I will just fix all that while I also check all the links and images on my blog, update whatever needs updating and delete everything that has expired (eg old blog hops & freebie links from external sites etc). I've even added a new WTF? Page and I'll be adding a Tutorial Page also just to help you navigate easier. And probably some other pages will be slapped up for popular topics:) That said I have much to do so I'm off to get it done. Blessings Love Every1!
