ceramic bee cell charm

Times are hard. You don't want to close down your shop, but you need tips to batten down the hatches. One of my tips is to use up your stash. Many of us crafters have tons of beads, fabric, glues, and more that we haven't used. Before buying more, let's be creative with what we have.

Very sensible words.
I certainly have a big stash of stuff!
I also intend to destash - some day.

Yea, I also destash to keep the supplies flowing. I'll probably blog on the importance of destashing later.

Yes, I reorganized by stash of crafting stuff to see what I could make instead too. I actually am quite excited about all the stuff I forgot I had!
