I can totally do this! That’s how I did my last swap – having a large stash comes in handy! :slightly_smiling_face:

I just sent in my Q! :smiley:

Awesome! I’ve added you to the list!!!

I agree! My craft room could always use a little pairing down anyway. :slight_smile:

Great! It should be a fun swap!


sent my info

Glad to have you!

Sounds like fun!

Yay! I’m in! :hugs:

I am hopping back in to swapping with this one! I’ve been working on cleaning up my craft room and can’t wait to use up some of my things!


Argh this looks super fun and I dare say I have an Impressive Stash, but I’m basically booked solid on swaps right now. I hope there’s another round of this later!

Glad to have both of you in the swap!

I’m betting there will be. ::wink::


Woo! I’m in!

Use what you have is a perfect swap for me…as of this evening ALL stores will be closed (except supermarkets and chemists) for the next 6 weeks in Melbourne, in the most restrictive lockdown in the world … :confused:
Online shopping is still a thing, but who knows how long the post will take :thinking:

Good thing I have an extensive craft stash :tipping_hand_woman:t2:


I’d love to join, but I might be spreading myself too thin… I’ll be there for next round :slight_smile:

When the Covid thing hit and we were forced to work from home and all of the craft stores in my state were closed, my boss asked me if I was going to have enough craft supplies to get me by. I ended up doing a video call with him and showed him my craft room. He agreed that he thought I’d be fine. :slight_smile: It’s kind of a fun challenge using only stash items, so this should be a fun swap.

Great! I’m sure there will be another one.


I just sent in my questionnaire. So excited!

Haha! This is hilarious!


Happy to have you!

Does anyone else feel like they need to do a pre-swap craft store run JUST to make sure they have a few extra things? :wink:
