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 #60

Welcome and Happy New Year!!

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 February NBUS Challenge with all your beautiful goodies! From all the incredible entries in February, I have chosen to showcase #121 Bobby:
This is so beautiful for the part of the world where spring arrives this month! (Hopefully!🤞) And happy fall to the other side of the world! Congratulations, Bobby, and thank you so much 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 March 31, 2024, at 10:00 p.m. PST.

Have fun!
Thank you!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Well, how wonderful, Spring is approaching and Bobby's beautiful irises are gorgeous. I have to say the NBUS items never seem to diminish, so I'm sure to be posting something during the month. Thanks Darnell for continuing to give us a place to show and share our NBUS creations. x

I love your NBUS Challenges, Darnell. I don't think I will ever run out of NBUS to pay with - Thank you. Bobby's card is a gret pick for showcasing. Over at Just Us Girls, our challenge is colors - lime green, green and one other color. Please drop by with your turquoise and green creation... or two.

Still a great challenge, and so many of us still have plenty of NBUS it seems!
