The Next Big Craft Adventure

I'm planning on doing a lot of decluttering around my apartment this weekend. The time for giving and receiving gifts is fast approaching, and the 3 (sometimes 4) of us are running out of space. One of our biggest problem areas is the dressers in our bedrooms. They are simply overflowing with clothes, and the closets are the same way. So I've come up with a way to get rid of some stuff that we don't need, and at the same time, try to save some money during the upcoming holiday season. Drumroll, please.....
I'm going to clean out all of our old clothes, and rather than donate them or give them away, I'm going to organize them to be used for various crafty endeavors. Sure, I won't keep everything. But I have tons of ideas flying around in my head on ways to recycle old clothes and such. Why not channel that into Christmas presents, made from the heart and by hand?
This weekend I am going to do my best, with the time I have, to clean out and organize all these clothes that we really aren't wearing. I'll also try to take pictures of this wardrobe de-stash/crafty stash-up adventure, and post them for fun. This will be the hard part. The fun comes when I can pull everything back out, a little at a time, and create.

P.S. Since I figured out this whole button thing, I'm trying to update the look of my blog, or at least make it more colorful. I'm adding buttons under my link bar right now, so if you want to be included, contact me through the comments. Thanks!
