I would like to take a line to defend myself too - my friend the Lunch Lady - you'll meet her at any 2 Scrap Ladies event - took a large box of unwanted and unused from my bulging shelves at the beginning of term to her school - I don't throw it out if I can give it away, honest.
There is a reason for the amount of scraps too. I average a weekly workshop for 10 or so people, and that cutting and preparation inevitably causes scraps. And apart from the scrapbook stuff I do, these days I don't make many cards that aren't specifically for workshops - which means that using up the scraps on the next bunch of cards isn't an option. But I have a large Chrsitmas card commission sitting quietly in the back of my head - just in front of the little door marked 'sleepless nights' and 'panic', so be assured, I'll use some scraps. But also bear in mind -nothing talks to me like new stash talks to me!
