How Does This Happen?
OH. MY. HELLS... One might ask, "How does this happen?"
Friends, Crafters, ANYONE! Please tell me I'm not the only one this has happened to! Life was hectic. I wasn't able to craft as often as I would like. However, I did make it to a few (using this term lightly LOL) sales, friends gifted me items and fabulous companies sent me loads of amazing product. I did complete my projects that needed to be done, I just worked in my living room. But purchases, deliveries and leftover products were all just dropped in my craft room. I just dropped and walked out, closing the door to the ever growing piles behind me! The time has come people...
This has got to stop!!! It's going to take a lot of strength. I am a hoarder of all things crafty! (Hey-the first step is admitting it!) I am going to de-stash. I'm also going to need a little help from friends. I have a problem getting rid of my supplies. I can always come up with a way I "might" use something one day. I have 1 or 2 friends in mind that are strong enough to say "No you won't, you will just keep storing it!" This is serious...the struggle is real. I must pass on some of my goodies. Believe it or not, I already gave away 2 huge boxes full. But then I got busy with other things and closed the door again. NOT THIS TIME!
I can do it! Madge is getting her fabulous studio all finished up which is a great inspiration. (And creates large doses of envy. It's a good thing I know that I can craft there anytime I want :) More pics of that will be coming soon!
We are going on a sun and sand filled vacation. I can get my mind wrapped around what needs to be done and when we get back, IT IS ON! I'm organizing, sorting, cleaning out and Donating! It must be done. I want my craft room back. If for no other reason than my sanity! (Let's get real, that's a far stretch!) I would really like to use this room for it's intended purpose! It can be done...It will be done...Wish me luck! And when I come out on the other side, there will be an entirely different group of pictures I have to share!

This is how my room looked, when I had one. Now I don't . I got rid of so much and I have to limit what I have since I now scrap in my bedroom.

Attach all the items you will use to the project you will use them in, and all others re-gift in prizes or sell in purging boxes or donate. Make sure you create a file with references to the projects so you can find it easily. And if you don't have time to do this take a picture of what you had and let go physically. If you miss it, look at the picture.
