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 #55

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 (NBUS)!

It's great to see you and I hope you're doing well! Thank you for playing in the September NBUS Challenge with all your beautiful goodies! From all the incredible entries, I have chosen to showcase #52 Kate:
Congratulations, Kate, 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! This is the place for you to share those NBUS works of art! 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. 
I can't wait to see what you share with us! 
The challenge closes October 31, 2023, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!
Thank you!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Loll said...

Always love to play along, Dolly. Helps me keep my pile of NBUS from hitting the ceiling. :) Congrats to Kate ... what a fun card! xx

TK said...

Congrats to Kate, and thanks, Darnell, for having such an amazing challenge to poke us in the (ahem) ribs to use to "supplies"!

Pat said...

The months are passing extremely fast Darnell and another month beginning for the challenge and still plenty of scope for using some of the ever abundant NBUS. A great choice for the showcase for September with Kate's cute acorn house and leaves, and the fun penny slider with the cute grasshopper looks great. x

October already! How did that happen?! So lovely to come here and be inspired and oh my goodness, what a stunning showcase from Kate this month! Thank you as always for the nudge to approach the NBUS mountain. Feeling like a lost cause this month as more stash has been acquired than used...!! Mwah! Vicky x

Carol L said...

Congrats Kate, that's a wonderful card!

Kate said...

Can't believe it's the middle of the month and I'm only now entering something NBUS and found I've been showcased - must remember to wear some boa feathers and sequins! Thank you for the honour and thank you for running this challenge - how else would I find out about all the new stuff out there, or find an excuse to use the stuff I've already bought but haven't got around to using yet! Hugs, Kate!

Me again! I love this challenge - it's a good feeling to use bought then forgotten 'schtuff'!!
