Warning! Warning! Warning! No-one should impulse buy craft items! But i'm sure none of you do that ...... rite!!!??
I am beginning to think that all craft supplies should have a risk assessment and be sold carrying a health warning.
By now you all know I have a newly organised workspace. I was so excited about getting stuck into making lots and lots and lots of cards. Arrrrrrggggghhhhhh!! Frustration is an understatement. I had a little time to myself during the week and took myself off with a cuppa tea to make a few bits. My mind went blank! Ideas popped in and out of my head so quick I couldnt't make any sense of them. I had paper here, card there, stamps, punches, ribbon, embellishments ..... but I couldn't get anything to gel together. Everything was gorgeous and pretty in its own right but nothing seemed to match anything else. All the patterns and tones clashed or were just a shade off.
I was disheartned, demoralised and totally fed up. After a long time and a lot of mess I did manage to get a couple of pieces together. Still didnt feel much better tho.
I have learnt my lesson and am going to try very, very, very hard. Note to self: no more impulse purchases ........


  1. Hey,
    This is because you need to buy some Stampin' Up! stuff. EVERYTHING matches. There's a Last Chance list coming out on Tuesday. I can drop a copy of the 08-09 catalogue thru your work door if you like for a browse and then hopefully you & your mum will be able to come over for an evening's craft and craic!
    Then on 1st October there is a brand new catalogue! Yeahhhh! Jealous that you've got an organised craft room!

  2. I agree with Karen( but then I would wouldn't I?) I have been doing this for 15 years and I know just what you mean, it all come to an end once I started using my colour coordinated SU stash. However my room is always in a state now a days. You made me smile as ever have a great weekend. M xxx
