I’ve never met a crafter without a stash of some kind. This year my goal is to use up all the craft supplies I have spent money on that are taking up mental and physical space in my life. Join me here every Thursday for a Stash Bash.
How lucky for a Stash Bash to fall on such a beautiful feast day!! I hope you are enjoying your day if you do indeed celebrate this feast day. I am sorry for getting this posted so late this morning. I was up again until 2 AM finishing the last gift to put into the kids shoes. I actually am not showing that particular gift because I did not put the last part on it though my son was super happy with it anyway but once it is done I will share the pattern…it’s a knitted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle!!
This year I had to really think hard to make the gifts from stuff we already have but I am very happy with everything. I hope this does not sound like bragging but I heard some of the kids this morning saying “this really looks store bought, how did Momma do that” and one of my older children who was walking by saying “come on it’s Momma, she can do anything”. That made the entire day of crafting yesterday worth it. And it makes me feel like a super hero!! Except, that I’m sure super heroes don’t wait until the last minute to make projects they have had planned for weeks.
If anyone wants a how to on any of these little gifts, just ask and I will post a tutorial. They are all small gifts and make good stocking stuffers.
Here’s what to do. There are no rules.
Just use what you have and try to not buy new supplies, unless you need it to
