Use it Up!
I have a confession that may be all too familiar to other people with a passion for craftiness. Buying supplies can bring out unpleasant shopaholic tendencies. A bead shop or craft fayre, for example can send me, as a normally thrifty lady into a buying frenzy. Good for Louis's treasure hunting prospects in my workroom but totally, totally bad from a finanical perspective and counter to my decluttering ethos.
Now I've seen round tesserae for sale that would save me doing some complicated cutting, the perfect excuse to flash some wads. But instead I'm going to get the nippers out and create some circular-ish shapes of my own out of my existing square stock. And although there is a vast spectrum of coloured tiles of the market that would match the original design I'm sticking to my existing stock. Watch this space for the finished result which I'm confident that I'll be proud of from both an artistic and thrifty perspective.
