2017 100 Thing Challenge

I have done it again. I have accumulated enough craft supplies for two lifetimes. Time to make some seriously cool stuff from my stash.

In the past I only hoarded yarn, fabrics and beads. Now I hoard mixed media art supplies too. I want to make 100 things from my awesome collection of stuff. I am inviting you to join me in making 100 things from your stash too. You can do it, I know you can!

The rules are simple:
  1. Use only items from your stash (I am making an exception for all manner of glues and double sided tapes but don't buy any more washi ...you know who you are)
  2. Keep a list or pictures to show me. You can post to my Facebook Page. Each post will earn you an entry into a giveaway of selected items I make during this challenge. Or leave a comment here or on the video for other chances to win. I will draw for a winner when when I complete my own challenge.
  3. Sell, keep or gift what you have made.
  4. All stashes welcome! Hoarding bottle caps? Use 'em up! Crochet thread? Doilies! Yarn? Hats, scarves, blankets, dolls! Fabric? Quilts, clothes, gift bags! Beads? Bracelets, necklaces , earrings! Paper? Junk journals, cards, bookmarks!
On the top of my blog there is a page labeled 100 thing challenge 2009-2010. Visit it to see what I made in the past.

Please tell all your craft supply hoarding friends to come join the fun.

Censored by Youtube (kinda) Crafting for Friends ~ Nisha ~

So Youtube has declared that this little video cannot be monetized. The only reason I can find is "partial nudity" due to the fact there is a bikini babe standing by a camel. There can be no other explanation. It's that girl there in the thumbnail before you click play.

Art Journal Spread in Leslie's Moley


It'd a Moleskine art journal, moley for short. It's been across the Pond and back and a few other places as well. I made my mark in it thusly:



For my BFF Leslie although she still lives in beautiful CO and I am in the flatlands.
