Thanks for all the input!  I have a feeling next year will be formatted pretty much the same as before, but wanted to see if there were any more ideas floating around in the ether that should be incorporated.

Good Luck with the Christmas Crafting and continual DeStashing!  I need to get pictures of everything from November to now, but I haven't been home very much.

Hey folks!

I've got a few free moments today, and I'm trying to brainstorm ideas for next year.  Maybe you can help me out a little bit?

Things to consider:

-Are folks still interested in another year of destashing?
-How can we keep interest going all year? We get a lot of gung-ho people in January and tend to condense down to some really dedicated crafters by late Summer. (Ya'll are awesome!)
-Are the themes and challenges still helpful? Are there any in particular you would like to see again next year or any you really hope don't show up again?

Thoughts? Comments? DeStash projects?

gaudiknight -- I am fascinated by the picture you found for December.  What is she making that Moravian star out of?

I really have no idea the background of the picture.  I found it in the commons on flickr, and there wasn't really any information to go along with it.

Awesome cards! I love those teeny little envelopes. Did you have enough stamps saved to make 50 of them?

December Themes

Color: Blue 
Pattern: Shiny
For: The House
Challenge 1:  This is such a busy time of year whatever DeStashing you get done this month is just icing on the cake.  But if you have time, it might be a good idea to just take a look around your stash again and see how far you've come.
Challenge 2:  Help come up with new ideas to make the 2014 DeStashAlong even better!

Great job on the dress.  I'm amazed how you got the angles of the stripes to work so well together.  I'm kind of scared of striped fabric, though.

Dulcet - Those costumes are amazing!

jfer007 - I am jealous of your productivity.

Look for the horsemen of the apocalypse on the horizon, folks, I have an update before the end of the month.

A pair of mitts for a co-worker.

They are made from the leftovers from a pair of mitts I made for his wife, plus some extra from stash.  (The other mitts are here if you care.)

A little dress for a little doll made from scraps from an old quilting project.

That's all for now, but I'm in the depths of Christmas knitting, so there's more to come.

bananaleg - I love the yarn you used for the infinity scarf.  I wish my stash had such gorgeous colors in it!  And the Frankenstein cuff is really, really cute.

November Themes

For: Charity
Challenge 1:  Host a crafternoon with friends.  Its a great way to make gifts in bulk ahead of the holiday season.  And fresh eyes looking at your stash may find new ways to use materials that would never occur to you.
Challenge 2: Make more than one of something.  If you've already got the supplies out, it might be nice to make a batch, some to keep, some to give away.

craftylittlemonkey That bunny in the altoid tin is absolutely adorable!  I am a huge fan of bunnies, tiny things, and objects that fit in their own boxes, so it hits all my buttons.

And now for my traditional end-of-the-month project dump.

Starting with a project or two for the bazaar at my grandmother's church.

Teeny Tiny Little Note-pads.  They're 3 x 4.5 inches, and embellished with random buttons, bows, and those little flowers I made last month without a purpose.

Post-it Note Covers.  No I don't know why I had 24 pads of post-it notes scattered throughout the house either.  Some are embellished, some are plain, but everything's from stash except the velcro dots holding them closed.

I also finished off a UFO that had been about three years in the making.  The only problem is in the intervening time my gauge changed considerably, so the mitts aren't quite the same size.  Oops!  Not sure what to do about that.
