Since I bought paper, am I done stash bashing?
Nope, because I bought it for a birthday present for a friend, but, man, I reeeeeally wanted to keep some or buy some for myself! I was at Tuesday Morning and the Echo Park kits were so CUTE and had great prices.
Without this self-imposed challenge, I would have totally jumped for it. I’m glad, though, that I didn’t because when I got home, I still have a couple of feet worth of beautiful paper.
When I look at my stash, there isn’t a bit of noticeable difference.

My Take Away So Far
Stash: Didn’t make a dent in my supplies
Limiting Purchases: Boy, it was tempting!
Using What I Have: this was a slow craft week for me, so I’m glad I didn’t have new products to put away.
I made it through September without buying anything except black and white cardstock for FUNN U. While still making 4 layouts, 6 mini albums, and 113 cards. That is a big deal to me. Kissing my brain!
Challenge yourself! Your challenge does not have to be the same as mine. Your challenge may be to finish a project plus a deadline, to sort through a pile of paper and give 10% away, to have a craft sale, or whatever it is that acts as a roadblock to your creativity and craft time.
Let us know in the comments, and here I go on month 2, week 5 of my #StashBashChallenge.
Have a FUNN week.
