Giant project time. I pledge to use up my entire crafting stash and catalog the results! (Initial inventory below.)
I have a real affection for the potential contained in my stash. I love having a store, a craft pantry, the ability to immediately produce gear for schemes that are hatched in my kitchen. My mum has made similar comments about her trans-continental supply of unused fabric. Magically manifesting supplies for a project someone just invented at your kitchen table is an intense nesting gesture.
But, I’ve spent enough time basking in the potential of all this gear. I want to know what will happen if I convert the whole lot into fully formed projects.
So, the starting line.
This would be a boring list if I gave full details. I’ll just say that each of these categories weighs at least 5 pounds.
- Fabric + old clothes.
- Screen printing inks + gear.
- Paper and clippings.
- Photos, prints + frames.
- Padded envelopes (WHY?).
- Lavender. (Only about a pound. But the volume!)
- Essential oils + bath supplies.
- Seeds, soil and plant pots.
- Found objects.
- Lab glassware.
- Industrial packing materials.
- Old, small appliances.
This is good. This gives purpose to my crafting, and just in time for fall.
