Can I really reduce my stash?


Happy-birthday-card

So I finally got a proper desk for crafting. I used to work from a pull-out desk, which was great for a laptop but not so fabulous for crafting because I have to clear everything away every single time I started a project.

Now that I have a desk, I have been seriously re-organizing my stash. Hoping to reduce my stash to whatever I can fit on top of the desk and a chest of drawers on rollers that I can tuck neatly under the desk. You think it's possible? I really don't have a lot of stuff... *winks*


I did find this pretty little butterfly charm while rummaging through my stash though. :)

Playing along with the challenges at The Shabby Tea Room, Case Study and Moxie Fab World

Supplies: Graphic 45 patterned papers, Fiskars scallop punches, EK Success square punch, SRM stickers, lace, pearls, butterfly charm.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! I hope you can find time to play along with LESSology Challenge 19: Mirror, mirror on the wall.

Awesome card and I love that butterfly charm. Good Luck with the destash. I wish I could fit all my stuff in the area that you use. Heck wish I could fit 1/4 of my stuff in that area. lol

This is so super cute, love the design and that fabulous butterfly charm you found. I would not reduce my stash, you may NEED something some day, lol. I like to go through my stash every once in a while, it inspires me to make something or I find something I was thinking about a certain thing for and then I am off and running again, lol.

What a pretty card with the butterfly and chevrons. I could have a store LOL. I am planning on giving a lot of my old stash to a good cause. Every year a lady I know takes her family to Mexico and they build houses for the poor so she has a scrapbooking fundraisers. One of them is a crop and another is a garage sale of scrapbook supplies where all the money goes to this cause. I know I will be able to purge it then.

Love that butterfly! So glad you found it and joined us with your very pretty card at The Shabby Tea Room!!

Cindy deRosier said...

Beautiful! Good luck with the stash-reducing. I can't imagine fitting everything on a desktop and in a rolling chest. Does that include your treasures for reuse? Something like that castle would potentially take up the whole space!

Tracey Sabella said...

Such a fabulous card!! Love the tone on tone chevrons with the kraft!! Yep, I need to have a big give-away party for my extra stash. lol!! ~ Blessings, Tracey

Hey, congrats on the official new work desk, Yvonne! I bet you'll have no problem re-organizing and de-stashing your goods. I try to get my stuff cleaned up and thinned out, but never seem to do a very good job at it. :)
I absolutely adore this card! What a fabulous combination. Graphic, organic, vintage, shabby chic all rolled into one. And I LOVE it! SOOOOO stunning!

Linda R said...
