Craft Sale in the old days, Craft Sale this week
So, I’ve been craft teaching for over 20 years. As I was associated with a company as an independent consultant, that meant I bought a lot of product to show. Crafting supplies twenty years ago were different in style, vastness, and availability.
I would have craft sale annually after a new craft line was released (summer), and customers would line up waiting to get in. It was a big deal!
This past Saturday, I had a craft sale. I had two people come.
Guess what? One of the women (so nice) sounded a lot like me – lots of stuff, lots of ideas, lots of crafting dreams, never enough time. I was totally interacting with the other lady’s 4-year-old daughter to know much about her, but her daughter was a hoot.
No Earth shaking concepts here, just another week of, yeah, stash-bashing is right for me to do. Have you joined me?

Not seeing too much difference in supplies! I thought I’d surely be running out of everything by now! :o)
No expenses this week.
My Take Away So Far
Stash: Didn’t make a dent in my supplies
Limiting Purchases: I’m so tempted with paper, namely those cute little 6″x 6″ paper pads of styles I’ve not used, but it is ok.
Using What I Have: LOVE IT!
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.
