April Stash Bust Roundup

April Stash Bust

Wow. What a month!

Did you make it all the way to the end without buying any new craft supplies? It was certainly hard, especially when confronted with those sewing machine attachments.

We ended up with some really great entries into the Stash Bust Contest and the lucky winner will be announced very soon!

Thank you all for following along and for your participation. We think it was a rousing success. Please take a gander back through the month and share your thoughts:

What was your favorite project? Would you do it again? How much of your stash did you bust? Do you think twice when you’re at the craft supply store?

Also a special thanks to our partners in crime: Scoutiegirl, Craft Leftovers, Dollar Store Crafts, cosa verde, Glue and Glitter, and swap-bot.com.
