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

40 in 40 Update

I am participating in the 40 in 40 challenge over at White House, Black Shutters.

I have to say I was so geeked up (and still am) about this awesome challenge. I however am not going to knock out the 40 in 40 like I planned, but I did donate three bags and boxes to Easter Seals today, I have a box of CD's that are going to the Sight Center, and a box of kitchen supplies going to the West Side Catholic center.

So five down only thirty-five to go. I have to say I am glad to be clearing out the clutter in my house, but what I really need to do is bust some stash.

Old T-Shirts
Oh on that note I also was able to make eleven T-Shirt bags to take to Crafty Goodness (The store where I sell my Crafty goodness.)

If you have a few extra T-Shirts on hand that you are pretty much done wearing you really should turn them into the easy and practical Upcycled T-Shirt Bag   ***Tutorial Here***. Let me say this bag holds so much stuff it puts other grocery bags to shame.

Mixing it up with a little Lacrosse
So I will be cleaning out more of my craft stash, avoiding all craft stores, and getting rid of hopefully forty bags before Easter. Until then Happy Stash Busting.

You're brave to join that challenge! I don't think I could do it. (I guess it helps that we have no basement or attic, so our house gets purged on a regular basis out of necessity.)

Those t-shirt bags are pretty cool! I imagine they can do some sretching, too. I'll have to keep that project in mind if I run across any that have neat logos.
I could have done this about a year ago, prior to moving. I know I threw out so much stuff that could have been used elsewhere but,moving day came quicker than we realized. Makes me sick to even think about it.
