Confessions of a Craft Collector

I have two confessions to make. First, I am a chronic collector extraordinaire- I'll admit to that. I have tons of really cool crafting stuff that I've stockpiled and squirreled away. Second, I am a messy person. I really strive to be organized and I even make all sorts of "lists". I love making lists because I get to use the pretty little pens and notepads that always find their way home with me. But do I actually use those lists? Nut-uh, no way.

I love how my mind overflows with ideas as I walk through the stores or sift through catalogs to find the right accessory or bling for my next project. Unfortunately, the vessel in which those ideas are collected has a slow leak, so once I get my treasure home I pile it away in my craft room and forget about it. What! You mean we're actually supposed to use our supplies? Come on, how many of you really use all of your craft supplies? Yeah, I thought so. ;)

So, that brings me to today. I'm in the middle of a craft room redo. I'm lucky enough to have my very own room for this purpose, but it  also seems to serve as the place to drop anything that does not seem to have a home anywhere esle in the house. Which, in turn, makes it even harder for my wandering mind to focus on finding the hidden treasures and yes, actually using them. Today, I pledge to fix that. Off to the craft room! (Insert Indiana Jones music here.) Wish me luck!
