I joined Craftster in June but didn't really hang out much until this month. I'm definitely interested in a 2014 DeStash-Along! I'm sure my husband would appreciate it too.  Grin

Heads up!

The 2014 will go live a little later today.  If you have any further suggestions, speak now!

(And don't worry if you're still madly crafting.  The 2013 thread will be open for about a week more to post any last minute projects and pictures)

I'd like to see more crafting for charity stuff, or crafting to make a positive difference in the world. Crafting with "garbage" like old clothes that are not wearable, recycling and upcycling. Also nature crafts like land art. I love that stuff so much. It's not exactly destashing but it doesn't Add to stash anyhow, ha ha. You could totally use up things from your stash though, come to think on it. Natural fiber things, sticks, roving etc. Left out in nature those would just melt into the ecosystem eventually, or be nabbed by birds to make nests.

I look to your inspiration on what to do with old clothing...I am tirelessly cutting out and folding fabrics but with no purpose, right now, the piles are getting high...I know clothes are often turned into rags, pulp, etc.  I found a wonderful carpet matting that is 100% recycled from clothing at our carpet outlet...

I will be de=stashing some sewing patterns when I get around to that corner of the room,ome will be given away and others used for papercrafts or art projects. I know I can't teach myself to be an artist but I can be more adventurous in what I do and the things I try  Cheesy

I pulled every single bin apart yesterday, there is no floor in here today. I'm bound and determined to start this year off right, destashed and pared down to a minimum! By the time the kids are back in school I'm going to have half these UFOs finished. Well, I'm gonna try anyhow. No more crafting clutter! You guys are gonna miss me next year Wink.

Well, I didn't craft as much as I'd like in 2013, but I also almost completely stopped buying craft supplies altogether, so I at least didn't add anything to the stash.  2014 is time to get serious though.  I've only got a year and a half left at school, and I am not lugging any more crap with me than I have to!

Well, I did a small bit of de-stashing yesterday and made a headband. Unfortunately, I wore it to work today and lost it between there and my apartment!  Shocked However, it was incredibly simple to make and will definitely be making more.

 Also, sorry for the horrible picture, I thought I would have the chance to take more this evening!  Cheesy

Happy New Year, everyone!! See you in 2014!!
