Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

About Stash-busting September

Ironically since I tend to mostly dabble in upcycled crafts my home is overrun with, well stuff (not the word I should use but it will work).

In comes September, which goes pretty good with the work Stash-busting.

For the month of September I am going to bust through my stash. I will not buy new or used items to add to my ever growing pile of items to be upcycled. I will share my creations with the world and smile at the fact that I didn't spend a penny on any of them (well obviously I did at one point, but let's not get to technical). I am tossing around what you will be allowed to buy? I mean if a girl runs out of thread that doesn't count? Does it?

What is in it for you. Well it's a challenge and who doesn't love a challenge. I am working on some nifty little buttons and if anyone wants to sponsor my little challenge I would love it.

The sign up for the challenge will be next week. There will be a second post that will allow you to link your September Stash-busting awesomeness on this site. Once the contest is complete the judging will begin.

I am still working out who and how everything will be judged, but it will all come together. I have a few awesome bloggers that I would love to see be judges on this one :).

Thank you and I can not wait to get the full details up on this site next week.

You all rock.

Sounds good I am so struggling not to go to GW this week looking for more skirts to use for fabric etc. I would definitely be willing to be on board (will go to GW tomorrow before it starts and bu a bunch of skirts just to totally ruin my stash busting efforts!!)
I need to bust some stash! Seriously...you know it's bad when you're headed from vacation and are at the airport worrying that your suitcase will be overweight because of supplies you bought on vacation.
