That is not insane at all, But it is hard to get rid of stash if you dont use the stash.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

I have learned from experience that if I put off things until I find the "perfect" use, I NEVER end up using them. And I also know from experience that when I've gone ahead and used something I was saving, I've never gone back and regretted it afterwards. This year I've been really trying to keep myself from saving things until I find the "perfect" use for them, and I've actually managed to use up a good bit of my stash. But that's just my 2 cents  Wink

Actually, I had to buy a lot of new fabric for a swap, because I didn't have the right kind, and I've ended up pulling a lot of the fabrics that I already had out to round out the items I'm making. So yay for unexpected stashbusting!

I have the "saving for best" problem too, especially with paper. I try to tell myself, "What if you die tomorrow? Then your husband will probably throw all of this lovely stuff away." I know it's morbid, but it helps sometimes. For some reason, I don't really have that problem with yarn, though. Odd. :/

what a lovely shrine!  I did not know you did altered art like that!  Will you be doing the other five crates as well?

great philosophy, CLM...I was hoarding an old family cuckoo clock and finally decided that someone else would really do something with it...

I also returned all of the flat rate mailing stuff I was hoarding in my garage...I realized I could just get them as I needed them at the post office down the street...

And, I am never going to use the hundreds of small jewelry gift boxes I have had for 20 years...oh, wait, yes I am...I am finally going to make an advent calendar for this Christmas! Cheesy

Brackish--my nephew point blank told me he would throw it all out!!  So I have been slowly sending stuff to people who can use it now...and putting instructions in my will! Cheesy

The shrinebox is super cool!

I'm hoping to work on a swap package this weekend which will involve some destashing (not a lot, but some)

Today I'm working more of the yarn stash, every little helps right  Cheesy Cheesy I've had these 2 skeins of Stylecraft Palladium for at least 4 years. It's an acrylic/wool blend in purple/green/black and I am making some chunky mock cable socks with it  Cheesy I don't know who they will fit  but if they're no good for me or Matt, we both come from big families so there's always somebody somewhere who might like them  Grin

Aww I love the Panda stuff.

And as for saving the stuff you love, I have a tendency to do that too. However, I find that I usually find something else that I love a lot when I go shopping again anyway.
