Craft Your Stash | Monthly Challenge



My girlfriends and I were shopping for craft/scrapbook supplies over the weekend that we don't know when/if we'll ever use. They have a hard time finding the time to craft/scrapbook in their busy lives, and I'm so busy crafting for the blog that I forget to craft for me.

We've decided to hold one another accountable for using our craft/scrapbook supplies by issuing a challenge to one another each month. 

So we are starting a 
Craft Your Stash
monthly challenge!

And YOU are welcome to join us!

Each month a different type of project will be issued such as
finish a kit
make something from a recycled item
a two page scrapbook layout
a mini album

And since we don't all craft with the same media, some months the challenge will be very generic and other months there may two challenges to choose from.

January's challenge is to organize our supplies!

Mostly because there isn't that much left to the month, and we only just came up with this plan this weekend. But also because we need to know what we have on hand to be able to use it in the following challenges!

I've created a Flickr group to upload photos of your projects.

And of course if you have a blog you are welcome to share there also. 
Grab a button and help spread the word!

But this monthly challenge is for everyone, bloggers and non-bloggers alike! Anyone who feels like they need to be held more accountable for the craft stash they have created! Feel free to participate every month or just every month that you feel you can. The more you do, the better you will feel!

This month you will need a before AND after photo to show how you've organized your crafting space. 
If you want to join in and have already organized your space, just upload an after photo!

The schedule: challenges for the next month will be issued on the last Tuesday of the month
 and previous challenges will be highlighted the first Tuesday of the month.

Upload your photos by Feb. 4th, and I will select some to share on the blog Tuesday, Feb. 7th.

February's challenge will be issued on Tuesday, Jan. 31.

I do hope you'll join us! I think it will be a lot of fun! :)
