It happens to us crafty people all the time, we have excess materials from our last project, that go in our stash and the chance those materials will suit the next project is so small, that these excess materials may not see the light of day for months (or even years). Real effort needs to go into losing stash weight.
As I look in what has become my craft corner I often feel a little bit of shame, evidence that a crafty person lives here is clear, but its starting to look like that crafty person may be hoarding supplies. Glancing over the stack of organised chaos I see 2 skeins of earth friendly fair trade yarn, I try and think - what on earth was I going to make with that.
I know I’ve done it several times, buying materials or ingredients for projects but never finding the time to make them up. Or even worse, forgetting that I had already had one or two of the materials at home and buying them again.
So I challenge you to join me. Take a look in your stash and lets loose some stash weight in the name of Christmas. Perhaps a Christmas Decorations, stocking fillers or even a present.
Lets see if collectively we can make a bunch of things from our stash, cutting our costs and easing the dreaded Christmas crafting rush.
