ScrapHappy April

 "ScrapHappy (it's linked so you can head over to Kate's blog to see who else is participating and their projects) is open to anyone using up scraps of anything – no new materials. It can be a quilt block, pincushion, bag or what, socks or a sculpture. Anything made of scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn it into something beautiful or useful instead of leaving it to collect dust in the cupboard, why not join us on the 15th of each month? Either e-mail Kate at the address on her Contact Me page, or leave a comment on her Scrap Happy Post. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join. We welcome new members. You don’t have to worry about making a long term commitment or even join in every month. Regular contributors receive an email reminder at least three days before the event."


I love that there are so many options and encouragement to use up scraps. I have a ton of them, I'm not ashamed to say :)


I spend a lot of my monthly goals using scraps and sometimes the results are just so happy :)

It looks so nice when you see them all together this way. You scrapped a lot this last month! I love scraps, as you know. No such thing as too many, though organizing them, after waiting too long to do anything about that, is a little bit of a pain. LOL

There's no shame in owning your scraps; anyone who makes has scraps and those of us who use them are being super-creative! I love your doll pieces, so happy and colourful!
