I have a question, is it stash or hoard if you have something that you think you could use to make something, but don't want to use it, because then you won't have it anymore?
i am a terrible offender of hoard-stashing... when i feel im getting out of hand i watch hoarders to snap me back into shape haha i get attached to everything from little bitty buttons to big cuts of fabric... oh dear!

always: i swear we are related. i also have tons of priority mailing boxes and jewlery boxes hahah
this topic really opened my eyes!  i must stop saving for perfect...

we can do it together mellybelly!

i made some more wallets last night. i had them almost complete right before life took a terrible turn last october. guess i got my crafty mojo back this weekend because yesterday i was sewing away at some UFOs, including my christmas gifts for my family lol.

i cant post pictures because they are bigger than 2mb... that can be very irritating. im sure its my dia de los muertos fabric is too busy and take up lots of mb

i will link for you all when i post to my blog tonight or tomorrow

in spirit of not waiting for perfect... i think i will make some button rings with my beloved buttons  Wink

Oh, oh! I may be able to help with that. Smiley

Try opening your pictures in say Windows. You should have a crop feature. Try trimming a bit off of your pictures, right click to see how large your picture is and keep trying that until you can share.  Smiley

I don't usually have the wiggle room to crop my pics so I compress them. Click "Compress" and then choose the "documents" option. It will take a 2mb pic to 200kb without losing much quality.
And I also love the wallets and the rings. Too fab!

Super cute wallets, apm.
As I commented on your blog, I was reading your post about the button rings in bed last night, and I just had to get out of bed and make one. They are just so cute! So, here's the one I made.

I have destashed a small square of red fabric with tiny white hearts, and a thrift store frame. It's about atc sized. Behold my Tesla pin up!

Nice wallets, I need to make a wallet! And boy, do I ever have buttons to spare. I could make some rings, they sure are cute!
Tesla. Smart is so sexy Wink.

Finished a Teesha Moore patch bag, my kid stole it so I have to make another one. Oh darn. LOL.
This only uses up the tiniest bits of stash but every little bit counts, right? Gee, I hope every little bit counts. I've got a LOT of little bits to work through!
