Okay people, I am committing to this now. I am going to use what I have. I am going to use my stash!
As a crafter, it is all too easy to fall for temptation and just keep adding to your collection of materials with the intent to make fun and glorious projects with them sometime in the future. And sometimes you might not even know that the products you buy are for – They are just pretty! So you add them to your stash.
Then you find yourself with a stash of stuff you love but don’t use. Well, it’s time to use it now!
I will from now on, with intent, go through my stash and start using my old stuff I completely forgot I had. I will use the papers that are “too pretty to cut up”. I will use all my very favourite embellishments that are still in their packs, because “I’m saving them for a special layout”. I will grab all the things I once loved, but now think is rather “bleh”, and incorporate them into my projects. And I will analyse why I bought them, and what they were originally for, and I will find new ways to use them.
Now; I’m not saying I’m banning myself from shopping for new stuff. I’m just saying that it’s a shame to just hoard the stuff; It’s way more fun to use them. And it’s rather satisfying to use something up, to the very last scrap. At some point I would like to feel that I am using more things than I am buying.
I will blog about it here. Be ready to see some really old products…
You can join the project too!
I’ve created some banners, free for use if you’d like! Here they are:
If you would like to link to my site, that would be an honour! But it is certainly not a must. Just go use your stash!
I’ve created a page for this project, and you can find it here. Stay safe and happy crafting!
