Happy Thursday Ladies!!! It's been a few days since I posted, and I have been a busy bee. I posted on Facebook yesterday about me being a craft hoarder, and well.... it's true. I'm a frugal crafter so when I see a good deal I usually buy more than I should which really means I buy more than I need. I figure that I'll use the supplies sometime, but that sometime doesn't always roll around.
So a couple of years ago I bought a 8x8 cardstock stack from Michael's that I happend to pack away in my craft storage area. When I found it a couple of weeks ago I told myself that I should have bought the 12x12 stack. I searched high & low on the internet to see if I could locate the 12x12 stack, but with no luck. I found an ad online that a lady had posted sometime last year trying to sell the same stack and I contacted her to see if she still had the paper even though the ad was over 6 months old. She did reply to me that she would check, but I never heard back from her. I was a little bummed, but I figured it wasn't in the cards for me to own this beautiful stack. Fast forward to yesterday, I pulled out another box of supplies and low & behold guess what I found..... YES I already purchased the 12x12 stack and I didn't rememeber even having it.
It's sad to say, but this is not a rare occurrence for me at all. Since I like to craft so many different things, I have a lot of random supplies that I just forget about. When I open a box or a cabinet in my craft area it's like Christmas because I really do forget what I've purchased. With that said, once my back is healed I will be cleaning out all my supplies and really figuring out what I have and whatever I don't need will be going up for sale. Whew... I feel better admitting that I have a problem, well I have more than one problem but we will deal with one at a time.
Ok, so now onto my newest project. A few weeks ago Michael's was having a sale on clearance cardstock 7 for $1. I was able to pick up a bunch of the pink Breast Cancer Awareness paper which I was so excited about. My mother has breast cancer so this project is in honor of her:
