WWYD?

Ok so my friend just moved across country and left me with a bunch of random things that she couldn't take with her. Anyway, one of these was a box of scrapbooking items. Some of the things are cute and there is some good paper. There are also lots of things that I can put in the train because they are for little girls or sports and stuff that I don't scrapbook. However there are two things I don't know what to do with and I would appreciate any suggestions.

#1- She has some of the ugliest paper in 8.5x11 that I have EVER seen. I do not even know where to begin. I am sure she's had a lot of these papers for at least 10 years. What do I do with them? She's real big in environmental stuff so I can't just toss it. I tried Goodwill but they won't take it. How do I get rid of it? I just don't want it to go to waste if someone out there does acually like it.

#2- My friend at one point decorated her entire wall in scrapbooking cardstock. She cut the paper into different sizes and did a kind of mosaic on her wall. It looked really neat and she did it because she couldn't paint. Anyway, she has all these random sized pieces of cardstock that are actually cute patterns and colors. I am probably going to keep at least half of them because I do love the colors so. However, she had 2 entire page kits so there are tons of pieces. What do I do with the remainder?

Do you attend a church? Or know of a local church nursery that could use the extra papers? I donated a lot of my scrapbooking papers and things I don't really use to a church nursery for paper crafts and the ladies were so thankful. Just a thought.

for the really ugly paper (that i get in a set i like) I just turn it over and use it as my white paper for backgrounds, journaling etc. Biggrin Another idea if you want to get rid of them is to look if you have "freecycle" in your area...people will come pick up anything on that site. lol

I completely forgot about freecycle!!! We used to do ugly paper swaps at my LSS but it closed a while back and none of my scrapbooking friends live in town. I will post it all on freecycle and see if anyone bites.
