Anyone up for another round of Use What You Have?  I did one years ago and it was fun to only be able to use what's in your stash.  I was going through my craft room looking for some wire yesterday and I found lots of things that I bought to only use once. 
With everyone being budget conscious this time of year after the holidays, what a great way to get and send a craft package, only paying for the shipping? 

Is anyone interested?

Sounds great. ^^ I have lots of fabrics and yarns at home I never use.

I have tubs and tubs of fabric that I really need to use. Anything that will help stop my husband from calling me a hoarder would be awesome!

Definitely, yes! Smiley My husband also thinks I am verging on hoarder status when it comes to my supply stash, and compared to many other crafters, I really don't have that much. I'm sure he'd appreciate it if I pared it down a bit.

This could be fun!
I was in the Buy Nothing swap awhile back, which must be along the same lines~
it was kinda nice to work within the confines of stash (plenty of yarn here, for sure!)

I doubt I'll have a swap spot open until February, but if I have a spot open when you start this I would definitely join.  I'm determined to do a LOT of destashing this year.

I promised to de-stash this year also! I have fabric and yarn and thing-a-ma-gigs all over the place Grin.
I'd love to be in. Would any one know what size or points the swap should be? And whether it will be a finished item/s  and/or  with supplies? Any thoughts anyone? I would be down for sign-ups and crafting for February?

I could definitely organize in February.  Sounds like that's when everyone will have time. 
I'm thinking a medium and a small finished item, but supplies could always be added. 

I went through my yarn bin yesterday and man, oh man, I need to destash that a bit.  Smiley

those sizes are right up my alley, and I could easily throw in some supplies (if the person
loves yarn, that is  Smiley

Think I'd probably be interested by February. Already in the Destash-Along, but I do more with my stash when I have a specific goal to work towards.
