Happy New Year... and Stash Report Checkin

My stash goal for 2012:

Use more from the existing stash, than I purchase new....

Since my stash is huge,  you would think that this would be an easy goal.... but I have to admit that, well,  I just LOVE fabric!   And... I have severe impulse control when I find a great sale.  Ok,  I've admitted it publicly.....

I really need to contain my stash to the area I've allotted for it... and I've crammed about as much organizational help into this room as I can.... so it is what it is...  In order to maintain some sense of control in my life, it must remain behind the partially closed door of my stash room... I must be able to walk through to find what I need to get at... it must remain somewhat organized.... and I have to share the space with my other obsession of cardmaking and scrapbooking supplies.  (It's a good thing that my third obsession is an outdoor activity, and that I don't have to store my gardening supplies or plants in this room, and with an acre and a quarter I still have lots of room to plant and dig.)

It feels good to start the year off with a clean slate.  With the 1st of the year starting on a Sunday,  I'll start with a zero all the way down the board...
