I told you in a previous post that I was excited about joining the Gilded Girls Stash Society & the first box arrived. You can find the details on my sidebar by clicking the button or the highlighted name above. It took awhile to have the free time to spread it all out to enjoy the beauty the box held.
Drooling yet? Not only do they send you treasures… but, there is a private BLOG where they have tutorials that they share ideas of creating things made from the items in your STASH. And then there is the Flicker Group where we can share photos & ideas….
Is it cheap? NO! But, as my friend Jan & I discussed… you could spend a fortune in fuel & time going around looking for this stuff. And the quality & detail is divine. Space in the society is very limited. I have signed up for at least a 3 month commitment & I am thrilled with my first box. Speaking of Jan… we had discussed that we both had MANY unfinished projects from Art Events & personal projects we had started. We challenged each other to get together at least once a month or more to CRAFT & do some of these things. I have found it is far more fun to craft with a friend than alone. Are you the same way? I would love to hear your thoughts & ideas on this subject… please share them with me. Here is the project we worked on last week. The Crowndalier from the last Gilded Life Event in October. YES, you heard me right October! Mine had been Msitting on top of my dryer loosing glitter since then. I am now about 98% complete & Jan’s is about 75% I would love to have planned another play date but, since we are living in a freezer(the temp tonight is supposed to be 8 degrees) most folks are staying off the icy roads & staying inside (there are many rolling power outages too). But, I think I won’t complain because so many of you are having it even worse. 2 FEET of snow in Chicago… YIKES! I think I’ll head in & have some homemade cabbage soup for lunch. STAY WARM & STAY SAFE!!!!!!!!!!!
