A new wave of crafting

I've been reading a thread on UKS entitled "Too much Stash - is that possible?" - a sort of self help encouragement group allegedly for those who have too much stash but keep buying. It has some hilarious confessions which have kept me entertained over the past few days.

Having been to Ally Pally on the weekend and spent my money, I decided it was time for a stash purge. Neither finances or inclination make me a stash purchase addict, but over the years I have accumulated a certain amount of stash, some of which is definitely past its sell by date, at least for my taste.

It does however mark the various phases in my scrapbooking and previous cardmaking life, and a LO is under construction.

Having sorted out my stash, I then got excited about using up some of the scraps that I had so carefully organised by colour and size, and the birdhouse I bought in Sainsburys many months ago sprang to mind. A couple of hours later, I made a minor dent in my turquoise, blue and green scrap pile and the birdhouse is now gracing my mantelpiece.

On a wave of enthusiasm, I then made half a dozen cards using old stash which I will not scrap with, but that makes good cards - happy days.

Now to clear up my craft table!!
