Stash...Stash...and more Stash!!!!

Tomorrow is the start of Shimelle's new online class 'Something from [almost] Nothing'.......aimed at us crafters with too much stash....who want lots of new and exciting ways to use it.....which Shimelle is bound to give us.
Her pre-class challenge was to blog about your stash....with some photos.
I have far too much......I just find buying it irresistible......I try and go on stash diets......but dismally fail......bit like with real diets actually.
But, at least, I aim to make a dent in it with this class.
I have a wall of shelves in our dining room/study full of albums, boxes of papers/card and wicker baskets crammed full of......
 ribbons,chipboard, flowers, gems, paint, glitters and all manner of embellishments.....the top shelves hold boxes of photos.........
across the room are baskets of dies and nesties.....2 draw units of stamps and ink pads....and usually a whole mess of stuff on the table.....which does, sadly, occasionally have to be cleared to allow us to eat!!
I can't wait to get started on the class tomorrow!!
A quick reminder that tomorrow [Thursday] 12 midnight UK time is your last chance to enter my sketch challenge posted here.

I think this class was made for you Jacky! From what I can gather in the forum you are not alone! Even I have at least one of everything on the 'supply' list - see you in class.

Wow, what an amazing room full of goodies! Love the wicker basket storage, by the way - so pretty. Can't wait to see what you create with your stash!

Karen said...

I'm loving all these blog posts with photos of people's stash. So nice to know I'm not alone! Even though I'm going to be away half the class, I signed up thinking I can definitely use up the stash in April when I get back.

Elizabeth said...

My goodness, Jacky, you have so much stash your shelves are sagging! As you know, I went completely digital so my stash is kept on my computer. Takes up a lot less space.
Have fun using up some of your stash with the new class.

Sian said...

It all looks beautifully organised Jacky! I'd love a poke about on those shelves :)

Fiona said...

Look well organised though - looking forward to seeing what you create in the class.
