Let's Have A Challenge

Ok, I know that there are others out there that have just a "wee" bit too much stash that needs to have something done with it.LOL I know that I do, maybe more than a "wee" bit.ROFLMBO!!
So here's the challenge.
Put on your thinking cap and make something with something that has been stashed for awhile in your home. This can be fabric, wood, scrapbooking or anything else that you do.
Make as many items as you like to get rid of your surplus. You just can't buy any new to go with it! It's ok if you need pins or buttons or screws, ets. but no new fabric or wood or any other basic materials. This is to destash, not add more.LOL
Drop me a line here to let me know if you are interested or send me an email at valerie999@comcast and I will put a link on my sidebar with everyone's name that enters with a link back to your shop or blog. I will also post pics of your items. You can sell them or whatever as soon as I get the picture.
This does not have to be crafts. It can be clothes that you make or household items or gifts. You get the drift. Just make something you like and use some of that surplus!
I will be giving away 3 items that I make from my stash a prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3d place. Votes will be taken from viewers. Although I will show items I make, I will not be in the vote. 1st place will choose what they want from my 3 items and so forth.
Since this is Feb. 10, I will put March 15th as deadline for entries. That gives a little over a month to create, create, create! Then we will take votes from anyone who wants to vote.
Invite anyone you know who you think would like to join in on this fun. They don't even have to join my blog on this one. Promote it on your blog or Facebook, ets. Let's have a big turnout and have fun while cleaning house.LOL
Here's one thing I made from my stash. I had the egg fabric left over from an Easter dress I made several years ago, the felt from my penny rug stash and the muslin I always have. The only thing I had to buy was the trim and buttons. I hope this helps you understand what I am trying to do.

I understand if you have to buy more fiberfill to stuff your items or paint or stain. Doesn't this sound like fun?
So you can enter now and start crafting and send me pics so I can upload them. Remember the deadline is March 15th. Voting will begin on the 19th and end on March 25th. I will put the prizes in the mail on the following Monday. Have fun and start destashing!

To avoid any confusion, just email me the pics and I will post them on my blog. Be sure and give me your link so I can add this to promote your blog and anywhere you sell. My friend told me this was confusing so feel free to ask any questions, Valerie
