I haven't had a whole lot of time to work on stashbusting this holiday. I was pretty much on the run since I left work on Wednesday.
I am really sorry for everyone who had a bad experience on Black Friday, but I had a great shopping day. There were a couple of things I wanted from Best Buy including a gift for myself of iPod speakers. I set my alarm for 4 to get up and be there by 5. When it went off I decided that I didn't need iPod speakers that badly and nothing else couldn't be found later. When I did get up, DH convinced me that since the sale didn't end until noon I could still go and see how things were. If it was horrible I could just come home. I got there around 9, found my speakers and a couple of little things for my children and was out in 25 minutes. It went so well I decided to go get more shopping done. A friend and I organize an adopt a family every year at our office. Some people buy gifts from the list, but there are a lot of people in our office who would rather just donate money and have us do the shopping. I had a list of things that we still needed for the family and I was able to get all but one thing and made it home by 1 for lunch. This really does have something to do with stashbusting.
I skipped going to the Joann's doorbuster sale which has been the only other Black Friday event I have ever been to. I didn't buy a single piece of fabric all weekend long.
I made this wall hanging this weekend completely from stash. It didn't use much fabric, but I didn't buy any for it either.
I also started a Christmas gift from stash. I can't show a picture and ruin the surprise. Not much used there either, but every little bit helps. :cD
