Inspiration without application is moot.

I had to give in and buy some fabric today, this takes my grand total of money spent on crafting this year 11.65  Shocked that's around $18.74 for the Americans,

Wow, that is impressive. I keep (nearly) every receipt when I buy supplies and I have just around $200 for the year so far.

Granted working in a craft/sewing shop does tempt one.

You guys make me proud at how thrifty and creative you are...and how you really do use your stash!

I am going to track on this thread next year...it will keep me accountable...the internet just makes it too easy to order stuff...I will say that I have not used my credit cards at all for buying crafting supplies...I have paypal take it out of my checking...so that is good...

I know I've been sort of absent on this thread for a long time , but I have been watching it, quietly. I have been destashing quite strongly this Christmas crafting time.

Here are a few of my pressie projects:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417926.msg4945772#msg4945772
All from stashed scraps of paper & card and a bit of embroidery thread.

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417925.msg4945759#msg4945759
I didn't have enough of either yarn to make a full scarf for my mother in law, but they combined nicely.

I don't think I posted this here before, but if I have, please forgive me.

I also knitted up these wrist warmers from some scrap wool


And raided my stash of scrapped library books and plain(ish) paper for some literary gifts for my mum.

Antidigger, you have been busy! I'm a tad jealous, look at you making cool paper crafts and all the varied yarny goodness, too.  Cheesy
And in the last picture, are those paper roses out of book pages? I'd love to give that a try myself. Lucky people, on your gift list!

Yup, rolled paper roses from book pages. I went to the library and asked if they had any books they were going to throw out that I might have. Oh gosh, I now have a pile almost bigger than my books for reading!

I never realised that some people could be so hard on books.

haha not even funny! Cheesy  I am also sending off supplies to destash...I decided that the last few years, I have been crafting all over the place...I loved trying new things and just had to find what I really love to do...

Destashing next year will be shopping from what I have with very limited buying...I decided I would rather use the money to do more charitable things or help another craftster member! Cheesy  Or more prizes for the 50 project craftalong!!! Cheesy

gaudiknight, i want that doll's sweater for myself. Smiley

What a beautiful reticule, Anti. Love the knitted button cover. I've never thought of doing that.

that1girl, i love the snowflakes and your argyle cozy.


I've been doing some destashing, but i've also had to buy yarn for commissions and presents, and i can hardly keep any of it straight.

And i just realized i haven't posted anything here in 2 months... but i have posted some projects on Craftster. So, allow me to link you to them.

Sounders scarf for my brother... i started it on his birthday last year. Finished it on his birthday this year. So, the yarn was in my stash for a whole year... so... i'm counting it. Cheesy

Sounders mitts from the leftover scarf yarn.

Sonic screwdriver-inspired coffee sleeves.

Baby mitts for my nephew.

1-month birthday baby bomber hat. (For his 2-month, i made a red and white elf hat, but that wasn't stash.)

I don't know if i posted the first one on here, but i was comissioned by some girl on tumblr to make another Washington State coffee sleeve.

One of my favorites, a rainbow cowl. At first, i wasn't sure how i felt about putting that peach stripe in with the oranges... but i think it all works.



Green Bay Packers hat. My mom's family is from Wisconsin, so i'm kind of into the Packers. Smiley



This hat was inspired by Robin Hood by Grace Akhrem.
I used leftover yarn from a shawlette/scarf i made this summer...

This one! Seven and Zero by Caitlin Ffrench.

Next year I plan to use a lot more stash, working at fabricland the last 6 months has tempted my to buy lots of fabric, I will buy 2-3 pieces for next Christmas - some black/silver organza, some copper taffeta, and some black satin.  My brother's family is doing a black and silver tree next year, and we'll be doing copper.  The goal will be to use ALL of my scrapbooking paper up next year, and ALL of my fabric up, and ALL craft kits that are in cupboards/boxes/bags must be completed before I buy more.


Some projects that should use some up quickly - aprons, placemats, wall-hangings, stockings, gift bags/shopping bags.

After Christmas crafting update!

I managed to make a few things in between seasonal retail work (oh joy)

A Yarn Tote that used up about a yard of stash.  It's big enough to hold three skeins of yarn and a mostly finished giant granny square:

A CD holder (pretty boring and self explanatory) that used up a little over half a yard.

And a bunch of little notebooks.  Lots and Lots, and there are still more to be made for after Christmas presents.

Pocket Pamphlets by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

Still working on plans for next year's DeStash-Along, so if you have any ideas, speak up!
