The question: What does a crafty packrat do when they find themselves with a surplus of Christmas crafting supplies they will likely never use?
The answer: Offer to donate the supplies to anyone in their Pittsburgh Etsy Street Team that has a use for them.
The result: The brilliant and community-minded hairycarrot suggests that the next monthly craft night the team sponsors could be used to create decorations from the unused craft supplies which could then be donated to a local charity.
So, something that was sitting neglected gave birth to Crafting for a Cause.
I love it when a plan comes together (even when the plan isn't mine).
