Okay, admit it. We all have purchased crafty items on impulse or because people we admire created such cool things with it, or it was on sale, it was supposed to be the next big trend, etc... then we get home or open it if it was an online purchase, and we are faced with reality....WHAT was I thinking! (WWIT)
Maybe it was something you thought you would love or would be easy to use, but then you have it sitting on your table staring you down. Maybe you realized you really don't need 35 shades of red ribbon, or you can't get the technique down just right, or you now can't stand the way those images look. Well, time to set them free for this challenge and use at least one of your WWIT purchases! Sometimes you will find out you CAN make it work, or see a way to use it that makes the purchase less guilt-inducing. Or maybe you don't have a problem with buying the WWIT items, just come up with something, and join us this week at Shopping Our Stash!
For me, one of my many WWIT purchases was grungeboard. Don't get me wrong, I love Tim Holtz. But I rarely use my grungeboard. I also pulled out crackle paints- another thing I just had to buy in tons of colors but now they are drying up in my closet. I did revive several though. Anyway, I do use them now and then, but not enough. I decided to use a couple of arrows on this card.

Hope you can make time this week to join us...can't wait to see what one or more of your WWIT purchases might be!
