Talk about destashing old stuff---anybody want to destash some old floppy disks? Cheesy  I work for a computer company and we have boxes and boxes of them!  I am destashing our offices and my house!

Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

Last night while at a volunteer group meeting I was talking to a lady I know who has a lot of serious health issues and she was mentioning that their little trailer was hell to heat and she only had 2 small blankets.  I thought about how just the day before I had been wondering what I would do with a thick white duvet, cover it for a quilt? Probably never...take the filling out for pillows? I have a few space bags full of old pillow filler.  So I had stuffed a 13 gallon bag full of the duvet and threw it in the garage for future uses.  I told them to follow us home and I gave her the duvet and a small bag of inexpensive fuzzy socks I was thinking of making sock animals or rice bags with (even though I disliked the colors)
For me it was just really stash busting unneeded stuff, for her it was the first warm night she has had in 2 months she told me today.
Sometimes I hold on to stuff just to have it, time to be more honest with myself about whether an item will be used or whether it could do someone else more good that it is doing me.

I just added to my stash today. Dollar General had the last of their holiday items marked down to a quarter, and I picked up some things to repurpose. Oh well! When it's a quarter it doesn't count, right?

That brought a tear to my eye. Bless you T'rina that was so kind.

I hope not because I hit that Dollar General sale today too. Picked up ornaments for a garland kittykill showed here a year or two ago.

You are a great human being.  That was so kind of you.

I'm going to take an inventory this afternoon.  I'd like to know what exactly I have and just where it's stored.  Mostly just the wool with fiber type and weight.  I bet I have more then enough fluff to spin for the entire year.

I started my inventory.  I got through 99% of the fibre in my craft room closet.  I'm starting to think I need help.  The shear volume and variety is a little overwhelming.  And to think I probably have 1/2 as much spread throughout the house... I'd better start spinning a heck of a lot more often because this is plain ridiculous.

I thought my Dad was going to have a heart attack when he found out I drilled holes in a record to make an earring holder.
