Crafting in the New Year

In line with cleansing my finances, I've committed to making most of gifts this year and for once and for all cleaning out my gift stash.

I have a baby shower this week for a co-worker and I've filled a big gift bag with baby wipes, a darling baby outfit and a little crafted picture for the baby. The outfit, and wipes came from my stash and I spent a whopping $1 at Dollar Tree to make the picture.

I found these darling bead board inspired frames at Dollar Tree, dug out some fun patterned paper and made a little wall hanging for this sweet little baby who's name starts with "A". I printed the "A" in Word in a font and a size that I liked, then used that as a template to cut out my patterned paper. Cheap, quick and easy, and darling.

I'm on board with the destash and using what I have! Let's keep each other accountable. Seriously. Root each other on and share our destashing and thrifty gifting! I'll email you soon with my first steps!

I really like this idea. I did a frame "scrapbook page" for chrismas gifts. The frames I got at ikea for $2.00 and used my stash of stuff and everyone like them. I'll have to post pictures on my blog so you can see it.
