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

Spring Stashbust: How Did You Do?

I put together another fun month of Spring Stashbusting and coupled it with the ever popular Project Recycled.The problem was I never really posted about my stashbusting efforts or let you spotlight yours.

Poor planning on my part.

I just got so caught up in project recycled that I failed to follow through on Stashbusting. Rest assured I did not buy any crafting supplies (thrift store or Joanne's) in the month of April.

I did want to send out a big congratulations to all of the blogs that did participate and busted some stash in April.

So check out the following blogs:

I signed up to participate.. then never posted after! I was a contestant on So you Think You Are Crafty and did do projects after 4/1 with only supplies I had on hand. And.. major according to friends, I bought NO fabric and actually sold some!!!! So I was successful!!

Thanks for feturing my maternity tunic =) Thank you for hosting this challenge... it REALLY kept me from buying new supplies even though I needed some for a specific project. =)
