Introducing Project 100
There was a moment last month while I was rummaging through my scrapbooking stash when Justin said to me, "Wow, you have a lot of stuff." Sigh...I totally got called out. I know that I have quietly accumulated an impressive paper and embellishment stash. Back in the day when I was actually employed, I more often than not would troll the Scrapbook Steals archives or other stores for a good deal on pretty paper or shiny stickers when work was slow or when I got super stressed. I suppose I bought a bit more than I can actually use! Now that I have no paycheck and very little space to keep any of my current supplies, I thought I'd challenge myself to actually make "stuff" before I buy any more "stuff." A few of my scrapbooking friends have embraced similar challenges to freeze their credit cards and actually create. So while it might be a bit belated on my part, I am finally jumping on the band wagon. Enter PROJECT 100.
WHAT IS PROJECT 100? A personal challenge to create 100 projects (i.e. cards, layouts, albums, etc. before I can buy any more paper, stickers, buttons, etc.). I will have some exceptions for replacing basic supplies (i.e. adhesive or cardstock) or purchases related to my etsy store. But other than that, I really want to follow through with this challenge.
So, anyone else want to join me? Or have you already committed yourself to a similar challenge? If so, please let me know and I'd love to link up to your blog! Misery always loves company, right?
