The Stache Party #1

This is a month-long party.  It starts at the first of the month and begins again the first of the next month, etc.

Everyone ready to party?!    Today is the day the party starts!  Yay!  This party is the "Stache" Party!

Does anyone else have, like, a huge stash of crafting supplies, as well as countless unfinished projects?  I do.  I am a craft hoarder.  I have a closet for my craft supplies that is overflowing.  No kidding.  I would show you a picture, but it is kind of embarrassing how much I’ve got.  As I was looking through my stuff this past week, I realized I had some things I have forgotten that I bought...eek!  So, I am going to do some digging, and tackle one of these projects this month.  And I want you to do the same!  

Finish one of your unfinished projects OR use your stash to make something awesome!  (Some of you may not have unfinished projects…I am, sadly, not in that category…:))  There are a lot of things that I have seen around blogland that I would like to make!

When you get your project finished,  email me a picture, as well as a link to your blog post by August 27, 2011, and I will post everyone’s link, along with a picture, so we can see what everyone else made.  There will also be a prize given randomly to those who participate.  Details on the prize will come later. 
I will post the projects on September 1.   Send emails to mylilpumpkinpatch@gmail.com.

I feel like this will be a good, fun, motivation to get things done!

Grab yourself a button from my sidebar, so we can get lots of people involved!  The more the merrier!
If you have any questions, feel free to email me, or leave a comment, and I will get back to you!  Also, if you would like to participate, please let me know in the comments...that way I can have an idea of how many of you there are.  Thanks!

What a fun idea... so it really is not a linky party, just like a feature party? I might have to use a recycled project because my house is under construction, but I WANT to participate! I am posting the button to my sidebar.

YIKES! I am scared and fascinated - my stash is rather embarrassing.

Amanda Joy said...

Sweet, I totally need to do this. I have TOO MANY started, almost started, never finished project.

Why have I not been following your blog before? I am grabbing a button and I will talk about it on my blog tomorrow:)

Jill said...

I only have one unfinish project, but would love to participate.

Ani said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog. And I definitely have several projects in the works... all the time lol. It's fun to see how my "stache" has built up over the last few months as well. :) I'm sure I'll get that email out to you this month.

I need to do this too so I'd love to join the party! How fun!

I have one that needs binding and then I will be starting another. I can try to have it done by the 27th,but it is a queen size for my bedroom. Maybe I will finish some wallets (for my shop) that I have the pieces all cut for already;)

Oh I have tons of projects in my to-do list. Some I've started, some I just have all the materials. I'm really bad about having 1,000 projects going at once.

I'm so excited I saw this on your blog - I actually am doing the exact same thing this week. I issued myself a "work with what you've got" challenge on my blog to make a project every day using all the supplies I've accumulated.... It'll be fun to see what others come up with!
