Stashbusting September

I have decided to enter into this "contest".  It is clear that my craft/sewing/quilting/weaving supplies are way out of control!
See this post for validation of that statement!
I read this on Robin's blog The T-Shirt Diaries:
"*Link your blog (the main page please not an individual post) to the linky below. The linky will be open until September 4th at Midnight.

*Craft for personal use only with items they have on hand. No buying new craft supplies, even if you are shopping at Goodwill or garage sales. It is all about busting your craft supply at hand and actually doing those projects you bought all the stash for in the first place. (Buying craft supplies for business use IS permitted)

*Think of unique and creative ways to use items they were thinking of throwing out (diaper boxes to fabric covered storage bins, pencil holders from soup cans, upcycled clothing, etc.)

*Think outside of the box.

*Try to make at least one upcycled craft item this month. Upcycled craft items from Stashbusting September can be entered into the Stashbusting contest for a rocking prize from our top secret for now, sponsor.

*Proudly post the Stashbusting September button on their website so everyone knows they are busting some stash.

*Check back here to find out other blogs that are busting some stash.

*During Stashbusting September we will still have the "Upcycled Awesome" linky party. I just love all of the inspiration. To be entered in the Stashbusting September contest (the link will be up September 1st) you must link your project up to the Stashbusting September link.

*Encourage all of your bloggy friends to join up:"
OK, so that is it...go take a look at Robin's blog, check out your stash and see if you are a candidate...and join if so!
