    Stash Busting 2017 - I WILL use my mountains of craftstash before buying more! 2nd Jan 17 at 8:29 PM
    Hi crafters,

    Using the concept from the 2016 thread (and goingback as far as 2014 I think...) - originally set up by 'Crafting Mad' - this is hopefully to keep us all on track - and to help us all plough through our crazy big stashes...

    Welcome to the new 2017 stash busters thread.

    You can find the 2016 thread here:-
    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5386359

    Well done to all the crafters who took part in 2016. Everyone was amazing and the thread helped so many people that hopefully 2017 can be the same.

    For those of you who are new here are a quick recap of the (very loose) rules:-

    The rules of the challenge are simple.

    You can make anything you like but everything you make must be made using items from your current stash.

    You are allowed to print things from cds etc and print any photos etc which may be needed for scrap booking pages but you must not buy any new stash until your target has been met (except for if it is something to enable you to finish of a project such as adhesive etc).

    However this challenge is just for fun so if you do sin (and I'm sure there will be many - with me at the top of the list!!) then post for forgiveness and keep creating and having fun xxx

    So who's with me this year? Tell me your target and you'll be added to the list Old and new members are welcomed alike

    Anyone can join in at any time

    Happy stash busting

    Well done nimbo. Happy New Year to all! I’m not sure I’ll have a target for next year- just aiming to do as many stashbusting projects as I can! Are we having a 2018 thread?

    I haven't given a target yet as I am so useless at planning. Maybe if I start with one a month I will achieve that. So 12 for 2018.

    How is everyone doing. I am laid up with dizziness and nausea. I am managing to crochet some small squares for my knee blanket though.
