Does anyone know why I keep buying more art stuff when I already have enough to last me the rest of my life? I know I am not alone, judging from the people I talk to, even while standing at the craft store trying to make use of that 40 or 50% coupon. Yikes! It wonder if it is a character defect or just a need to acquire more supplies. I do think I was a lot more creative back in the day when I had a lot less to work with. I focused on using recycled materials in most everything I did. Now there is a ton of "manufactured" stuff made to look as if it were recycled. It is very appealing and I buy right into that need to have those pretty things. Then when I start to make something, I have so much visual overload that I just get stuck. I am saying this after going to Michael's and buying yet another load of goodies just because I couldn't resist. Besides I had coupons after all.


  1. I do the same thing! Those darn coupons are my downfall because when I have one I think I have to use it or I'm losing money!! I know that's warped thinking but then I'm a little warped all the time!

    I love those little stips at the top. What are they? Would they make good stencils?

  2. Looking great!!! But STOP the shopping!!!
