I coined the acronym NBUS in 2013 and ran several challenges until 2017. The term caught on and is still being used in Blogland, so I thought this would be a good time to resurrect my NBUS challenge. I set up this dedicated NBUS website for crafty artists to share their works of art containing any brand-new virginal Never-Before-Used-Schtuff! We bought it ~ now let's use it to share and inspire others!

and actually using them are two separate hobbies." (Unk)

NBUS Challenge #24


It's great to see you and I hope you're doing well! Thank you for another month of rousing participation in the NBUS Challenge! We weren't as active during the short month of February, but we still had an outstanding 150 entries in the gallery! WOW!!! Thank you for all the amazing inspiration!

This is a wonderful place to find design ideas as we all share with each other how well we are doing using our never-before-used-schtuff! From all the incredible entries, I have randomly chosen #41 Anita Trippi to be our showcase for February's NBUS #23!
Congratulations Anita and thank you for sharing your wonderful creations using NBUS! 

The basic idea of this challenge is evident in the name. Whether it's something you have just purchased or something collecting dust in the back of a drawer, you are proud when you use something never-before-used in your creation. Here is where you link up to share your NBUS works of art! (And as you can imagine, I have a huge mountain of NBUS, so I will also proudly share whenever I excavate and use something!)

There are no limitations on what you can create, but there are a few RULES which you can find on the tab above. If this is your first visit, please take a minute to read them. You can also click here for answers to any questions you might have. 

You may use this badge for your blog post if you like, but it is not mandatory. Several of us are having problems loading badge copies at the moment.
I can't wait to see what you share with us! 
The challenge closes March 31, 2021, at 10:00 p.m. PST.
Don't forget to click that little blue Follow button on the right!
Have fun!
Thank you!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Loving Anita's cheerful teapots against that beautiful watercolour background. What a great showcase choice! I may be quite a regular here this month as January and February were pretty depressing here and well, there may have been a bit of stamp shopping done to cheer myself up! Vicky x

Pat said...

Glad to see that there are so many of us with NBUS in our stash that needs some love and what a great card by Anita to showcase February...I adore the teapots. x
