Day 96: Scrappin' Our Stash Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Scrappin' Our Stash blog hop, where the challenge is to make something using only items from your craft stash. You might be lucky enough to be arriving here from CHERYL'S BLOG. If not, keep on hopping and you'll come back around to check out her awesome project!
If you're a fan of this hop, you've seen me working on this series of Hoop Art for almost a year now, adding a hoop almost every month. This month I made this mini hoop, a 3" baby hoop, filled with a scrap of Grey and silver polka dot fabric from some unfinished project that I can't even remember now. I added some washi tape covered banner diecuts along with a few flowers left over from my Heirloom Pro stamp show demo. 

I have trouble stopping when I craft. I feel like there's always another detail I could fix or add, something I could redo or make better. So I've wanted to hoop this sentiment for a while. I stamped the letters in Memento Tuxedo black, then went over them with Liquid Glass to make them more 3-D. 

In the spirit of the sentiment, I hand lettered the rest of the words. It's not a perfect hoop, but it makes me smile. I need this reminder daily, because if I've learned anything from doing this 365 days of blogging challenge, it's that it is the process of creating that fills that spot in my soul and makes me happy.  

Now hoop on over to KRISTY'S BLOG to see more stash bustin' goodness.

Very cute...... Need to have this hanging in my craft room.... so I will just "do it" and not get stuck on the "imperfections" so much... would definitely get to more of my stash with that attitude!
