April is Stash Busting month!

In celebration of Earth Day, some crafties got together to do something to celebrate. They are making a pledge not to buy any new craft materials, tools, or supplies for the month of April. They are calling it the April Stash Bust! In order to urge others to do the same, they are hosting an April Stash Bust contest! Here's some details:

To enter, take the Stash Bust pledge to not buy any new materials, tools or supplies for the month of April. Place the awesome April Stash Bust badge (created by Liz at cosa verde) on your website or blog (found below). Create a project from your stash using only what you have on hand. Submit your finished project detailing the stash materials you used with a link to your finished project by Earth Day, April 22nd. A team of crack judges from x, x and x (to be revealed) will review the projects and choose a winner.

Submit your finished project detailing the stash materials you used with a link to your finished project by Earth Day, April 22nd to the April Stash Bust Flickr Group.


I really like this idea. If you've been reading for awhile, you know I'm big on recycling and reusing, and I think it's so fascinating, as well as a good brain exercise, to put stuff together from leftover stuff and have some beautiful stuff come out of it. I have lots of leftover stuff that I need to do something with...this project will really motivate me to get my homework and research papers done early, so's I can concentrate on a really cool contest in honor of Earth Day. Hmmm...the brain is working....
