Use it or Lose it

So I've decided to do a little Project Clean-out-Elaine's-Craft-Stash. I made a choice not to buy any more crafting supplies until I use up 10 items in my stash. As a compulsive paper and fabric scrap saver, I tend to hoard the most pretty things to craft with and then they sit in bins and binders on my craft table and never get used! I'm trying to be more aware of what I have, and actually USE the prettiest supplies to make something fantastic!

So since I just bought supplies for my next etsy update, the project begins now. I hope I can be held accountable for this and not just give in to the first pretty paper that bats its eyelashes at me. ;)

We'll see how this goes. My self-control leaves much to be desired when it comes to art supplies. lol

I do the same thing! I have been meaning to use some of my lace or heart shaped crystals, but they're so cute! Maybe I'll work on getting rid of old supplies too!

I have that same problem too. I am trying to use up all of my pretty stuff right now, and have banned myself from going to the scrapbook store for a while!!

I've to also do this! Sometimes I want to try new materials and new stuff and I never get around to use things I've. I might do this after my exams are over =)
