The hats with hearts are adorable.

So this morning I needed invitations for my daughter to pass out for her party.  Half way through making some, I realized that I was destashing!  I don't papercraft, so I never counted all those cards that I've saved as stash.  It's just a habit I blame on my female progenitors.  I just cut out cute, birthday-type pictures from the manufactured cards, layered them with some solid brights, and slapped them on blank cards.  Turned out cute.  I realized that using whatever's on hand when a need pops up is just a mindset that a lot of crafters have.  So it shouldn't be so hard for me to reduce my stash.

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!

I've had a somewhat productive month after not really crafting last month (on the plus side, I didn't buy any new materials in February either) I used up a small bag of beads on some necklaces and about two yards of fabric on a skirt!

I have been noticing that while I'm destashing I like to 'destash' movies/shows on my Netflix queue! It's incredibly helpful since I can't sit still while watching a movie.   Wink

always I have wanted to go through my gran's stash for two years now... I know she had some amazing stuff and I'm sure she wouldn't want it to just be sitting there, but my hubby and even my dad have said no, not until the renovations are finished and I actually have room for more boxes. As it is we are living with walls of boxes! Lol

just think how many people are warmer now because of your crafting!
texscrapper I have to remember to make some headbands too, yours look very nicely made  Smiley
Happy Birthday mellybelly81 and alwaysinmyroom !

I completed a very tiny destashing project. I now have approximately 3 square centimeters more space, but that is better than none!
