Smash My Stash in 2013

For the entirety of 2013, I am resolved to make art only with what I already own. No buying paper, tools, glues, studs, ribbons, buttons, or any other geegaws and foofies--it's time to SMASH MY STASH! THE RULES: 1. No using anything from now until Jan. 1, 2014 that I don't already have in my already-overflowing hoard, unless it is a salvaged jar, piece of junk mail, or such from the week's recycling. 2. Must complete and post at least one full project per week, utilizing said stash. Caveats: I will continue to buy from my wonderful neighborhood Beverly's store as usual--who could possibly pass up such deals?--but I will list what I buy and put it away for next year. I am hereby making myself responsible to myself for this, since after not posting anything fresh in this blog for 11 months, I'm sure I no longer have any followers. ;-) FULL DISCLOSURE: I went nuts this past week stocking up on end-of-the-year goodies from Beverly's, knowing that my deadline was approaching. Good thing I had myself a Marvy little Christmas, thanks to my generous husband.


  1. Yikes. I have a hard enough time sticking to this for a month. Don't get me wrong, I have enough to do it for a year ( shame shame shame). Great goal!

  2. Someone is reading it besides me. Ulp.

    Kidding, Carol. Thanks for the note. Let's see how far I get--but my intention is to go the distance!
