The destashing topic is extremely popular, but what about those of us who don't have very many craft supplies?  Cheesy

Let's make (or collect) things that we can more readily use in our crafting:
-Various papers (stained, aged, burned, painted)
-Rubber stamps
-Jump rings, eye pins, etc.
-Inchie/ATC blanks
-Magazine cutouts
-Primed surfaces for altered art
-Old books

-Share ideas for getting more supplies cheaply
-Collect unlikely craft supplies and turn things we find lying around into craft supplies, such as:
--Old newspapers or for text
--Patterned cardboard from old kleenex boxes
--Unpatterned t-shirts
--Wallpaper samples
--Metal from soft drink cans (be careful with these)
--Nail polish/empty bottles

I'm game for this!

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Can I do both the destash-along and the stash-along or would that be counter productive?

You might want to call this something else...I really like the idea of using supplies on hand that are not "traditional" supplies!  Maybe a junk/everyday items craft-along?

I know I have a really cool recipe for salt clay that can be used to make wonderful crafts...I am also a fan of using tin cans to make candle holders, tree decor, etc.
