I am a hoarder. I admit it. Especially if the items are cheap or free. M & I joke that I will buy pretty much anything if it is priced at $5, even a bag of poop. Hey, it is only $5! Well now that I have admitted I have a problem, I need to do something about it. My first area to tackle is going to be craft supplies. For the next year, yes a year, I will not accept or otherwise obtain in any way, any craft supplies. None. Not any. So you say you have some yarn that you haven’t used and it is the most lovely shade of hand dyed green wool with specks of orange and red? Nope, sorry, I can’t accept it. You have a billion knitting needles in your attic that you won’t be using and would I like them? I would, but I am going to have to say no thank you. You have purchased everything anyone could possibly want in the way of scrap booking supplies and found out that you are deathly afraid of getting a paper cut and bleeding out and you heard I might be interested. Maybe yesterday I would have taken the stuff off your hands, but until July 18, 2008 at 1:14pm, I am sorry, I can’t. A friend of a friend has a printing press that they are no longer using and wasn’t I interested in printing my own limited edition prints? Yes, I am, but I can’t possibly take on one more project or learn one more new skill until I start using the stuff that I have! I am sure kind reader, you knew this was coming, but I have one exception. Only one, I promise! When I am in New Zealand I can buy as much yarn as I want because I won’t be going back any time soon. Oh and by the way, you will all be receiving hand made Christmas presents this year.
