My mother works at the business office for a school and I'm giving her all of my clay to bring in to work to donate to the art class. that way I don't have to feel bad about just throwing it away (most hasn't even been opened!) and I free up lots of space. All of it filled a medium sized flat rate shipping box. I bought the clay a few years ago off of Ebay for about $20. I have decided that I just don't do enough with clay (or anything at all really) so I want it gone. A couple months ago I did buy some paper clay but that is for when I do mods and props for the dolls that I collect. So I only have that one block of clay as opposed to a huge box full.

My mother also destashed six skeins of yarn for me. She crocheted a scarf and is donating it like I do with the scarves I make. ^.^

300?!?! I wonder how many broken crayons Little Bean has. How did you melt them? Stove top?

It took 3 gallon sized bags of bits and pieces to make these  Shocked
I melt them in the oven in a throwaway aluminum cinnamon roll pan. Heat at 275 until melted. Pour into silicone molds. Once you use a mold for crayons don't use it for food! I find shaped molds in the Target Dollar spot and at the Dollar Tree.

Wow, all those crayons! We made a batch of these (ruined a muffin tray because apparently I can not read instructions Tongue) but peeling the crayons from ONE child was enough. I can't believe you, you're amazing!

Ok, I actually sifted through my supplies and you know what? It didn't seem like it but I'm actually pretty organized.

Bins of fabric etc for specific projects (Lots of felted sweaters for monsters and socks and partially constructed sock creatures, I can make very short work of all of it at once)


Tools and supplies currently in use for projects on the go


One bin of scrap fabric and Teesha Moore style "poptarts" and a bin of supplies currently not in use (I won't let myself take on any new projects until all those bins are busted so these other supplies are packed up into one bin for easy storage and transport)


Random flotsam and stuffing Cheesy


Beads on an otherwise completely emptied shelf


They are ruthlessly organized too


Whadda ya think of THAT?! Now I just have to get to work actually making something, ha ha ha.
Oh, and it was 6 or maybe even 7 full days to destash the computer. Don't let yours get out of hand guys, my eyeballs nearly fell out of my head after all that staring at a screen for hours and days on end  Shocked.

Inspirational CLM!  I hope to get my space into this kind of shape....though I need a special area just for the crafty bits you've sent me in the past Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

LOL! Sometimes I open the bins just to look at them, ha ha.

Sue, I came across the beginnings of a box of stuff I'd set aside for you in fact Wink. There's another for someone else too, you can see them both on the floor in teh second picture. If I kept everything I collected I'd be knee freaking deep in stuff by now. Seriously, when I think of how much stuff I've foisted off on you guys, ha! My stash is your stash Cheesy!

CLM!  i think that`s the most organized I`ve seen you!  I think the last time (I saw) you posted there was a heck of a lot more, and a lot more random.  Great job!

lol--I am sure people would recognize some of your stash in my stash, CLM! Cheesy

Although, I have to say, I have used up a lot of what you sent--snaps, magnets, flannel bits, ribbons---I think sometimes it is easier to use up what other people send...why is that? Cheesy

Looking good and organized, btw!

I think it's because other peoples stash is new & exciting to us and ours is the same old stale supplies.
