April: pink, paisley, rain, recycled/repurposed items, for the bedroom
May: purple, argyle, toys/playthings, subversive crafts, for your parents

July: yellow, animal prints, vacation, patriotic, for the bathroom
August: metallics, lacy, sea life, crafts from a different time, for the exterior of your house

November: brown, natural prints, craft you've never tried before, trees/leaves, for a holiday gift

I just took a look at last years project pics and am very inspired! (we'll see how long it lasts once work starts up again)

Count me in! I've bought supplies for tons of projects that I either have left-overs from or I never did the project. I need to declutter my house by decluttering my stash!  Cheesy
Unfortunately, I am unable to post a photo of my stash due to the sheer size of it (two closets worth...).  Undecided

I am definitely ready to keep destashing this year.  Last year I only bought new things for the stash that were needed for projects I completed during the year.  I definitely used more from the stash than what a bought, yet it appears I have hardly made a dent.

My goals for January are an owl pillow and an unknown project using my winter white yarns.

for february, I plan to make those crocheted top towels my sister asked for. I have plain towels in my stash waiting for a project.

as well as crafting for my various swaps.

I'm in. I'm going to do this simultaneously with the 50 crafts in 2010.

My stash is too insane to photograph.  If I did and posted it here, you'd all think I was a compulsive hoarder!  Let's just say I can't pass a remnant bin or a clearance section without snagging a few things.

I've already started, though.  Today I made 2 cloth napkins.

Dear Craftster,
forgive me for I have sinned.
I signed up for this last year and bought home more stuff than I crafted and sent out of the house!
M is not budging on letting me have a second room for crafting.
Surely I need one room just for sewing and one room for everything else?
little sigh,
I promise to be better this year.

Oh thank GOODNESS this thread is about getting rid of supplies!  For a minute, I thought we were all gong to participate in a group upper lip waxing or something.  LOL!

I have quite a stash to get rid of, too.  So many projects...so little time.   I once had my husband describe me (CAUTION: Do not attempt this at home unless you're fully prepared for the response).  His words?  

"Full of good intentions".  


I'm in.  Just yesterday I spent the evening using up some birdseye cotton and flannel making some cloth napkins/reusable "paper" towels.  (Saw them posted on another thread).

I'd be happy to post pictures of my sewing storage area....if I can find it.  LOL!  Really, it was nice and neat when I first set it up.  Now it's kind of oozing all over the place.   Too much stash.

Here's a before shot. (Taken about a year ago)

Here's a "now" shot.
