So I thought I would show you my stash that I intend to crash, to give you a better idea of what I am talking about.. This is a tour of my craft room.
This is my craft room/office. I am fortunate to have it.
PC on one side, craft desk on the other. This works very well for me. The pink rolling cart contains most of my tools that I use regularly — adhesives, inks, embossing powders, glitter glue, and various embellishments of which I have too many — three drawers full!
This grocery bag contains all the stamps and stamp sets I have bought and have yet to use.
Filling this bag was a big part of my decision to go on a stash-crashing, supply-buying moratorium. This is just crazy!
This gray rolling cart contains the bulk of my wood-mounted stamps.
It is so overloaded, the drawers are falling off the tracks. I really ought to upgrade, but to what?
These clear shoeboxes hold my clear and cling stamps.
This system works well for me. I tried binders, and just didn’t like the way I had to pull a whole binder off the shelf, and they way the pages flopped around while I searched for individual stamps. This way, I can see what’s in the individual boxes, and just grab the box I need. I labeled the boxes by theme with clear packing tape. They also stack nicely.
Here are my all my patterned paper pads. It was quite a job hauling all these out! Wait, no, actually, this isn’t even everything — it doesn’t include all the 6 by 6 pads.
This is just a taste — there is even more stuff crammed into my office I didn’t dare show you. (Luckily the picture of all the crap piled on the sofa didn’t come out.) But I think this is enough to make the point — I have too much stuff. I need to use it, and use it up!
That’s what this whole project is about. I’m sure you agree — it has to be done!
What’s in your stash that you’d like to use up?
