    Stash Busting 2019 - I WILL use my mountains of craft stash before buying more! 28th Dec 18 at 11:19 AM
    Hi everyone I'm back and raring to go with my stash busting challenge in 2019

    The challenge is simple. From 1st January 2019 you are not allowed to buy any new craft supplies until you have used what you have (adhesives or items for orders are allowed) but of course nobody is going to hurt you if you happen to fall off into the dark (or pretty paper) side for a bit

    My aim for 2019 is to make 2019 items from my stash

    This thread is a great motivation to me and hopefully others so I'd love for you to join me on the journey.

    Let me know what your targets are and I'll add you to challenge.

    Can't wait to hear how we all get on

    Don't get me started on stationery. Maybe I should add that into my challenge as I have a whole shelf full of pretty unstarted notebooks

    I can't wait to hear about your journey

    I'm declaring further 5 items towards my total.

    A customer asked me to make some will you be my bridesmaid little bottles. I had great fun making them and everything was from my stash. I've even got enough stash left to make a few more and list them in my Etsy shop so I'm a happy bunny today

    This means my total now stands at 81/2019

    Its going up slowly

    Sewn up some knitted squares from old knitting stash, into 2 cat/dog blankets. Small start but will try to get more productive this year.
    No money, no worry. I am alive and that is all that matters
