Well at least that is the hope with this new class that I am doing with Shimelle Laine called "Something from Almost Nothing". Shimelle challenges us through a series of weekly prompts to use the stuff that has been sitting in our stash before it becomes too outdated and then we are not inspired to want to use it. As part of the class we are also creating a mini book about celebrating life.
I have been pretty proud of myself as I am actually keeping up with the prompts and it feels awesome to be using my stuff instead of just looking at it all pretty in its various storage containers. Below is the cover and first page for my album as well as a layout I did for the first prompt.

How have you been using your stash?
