:: a problem


I've come to realize that I have a slight problem....I love stuff....art and craft stuff to be exact. I admit it...I'm a supply addict. I have more craft and art supplies than one person could possibly need. Honestly I couldn't make enough stuff in 10 years to use up all of the supplies I have....

a problem.


I love to see things collected all together like these lovely embroidery floss & bobbins...aren't they so pretty...

a problem.


Look at all of this yummy color coordinated fabric. I don't even sew....but I had big plans for every piece....

a problem.


Knitting needles galore, every size, color and material...though I knit more than anything, I haven't even used half of these needles. They sure are pretty displayed together....

a problem.

 

Yarn...

a problem.


 

Buttons & baubles...

a problem.



Brushes & scissors...

a problem.


More colored pencils,  and this is just the tip of...

a problem.


It's especially a problem when it comes time to organize the old studio space. Eek, I think this stuff breeds when I leave the room. So, as you can see this is what I'm doing trying to do this afternoon....organize my over abundance of art & craft supplies. I guess it's a pretty good problem for a crafty person to have...unless of course you are like me, and have a problem finishing the projects you dream up....leaving you with nothing but more supplies.

One of my new years resolutions was to make something every day, and as of right now I'm failing miserably. 

So please send some crafty mojo this girls way so I can use up some of my ever multiplying art & craft supplies.

  7. I can easily see myself getting to an overload of items too! It is quite fun to be stocked full of supplies to have on hand, but it feels great to organize! Good luck!!

  10. Hey Girl! Look at it this way, you have a multitude of supplies to pull from whenever a creative urge hits. I'm the same way, but whenever I think I need to purchase a tool or a craft supply I think, "Wait a minute, don't I have one of those somewhere?" and then I usually find it. It comes from years of collecting the stuff. I always joke that I've got the stuff of a Grandma. :) Amy

  20. It isn't a problem unless you don't love it... then it is just stuff that's in the way. But your pic show you love it all. Wish mine was so pretty and neat :)

  21. If you are still looking for ways to clean up, here is what I do; for any special occasion I need to give a gift, to a school, charity, or a crafty friend, I pick a topic and make a basket with a few items (from my stash) wrap it up nice and pretty and give it away. I figure if I haven't used it is 1-2 years I probably am not going to use it. I love shopping for new crafty ideas but don't always have the chance to fish the project either.
