This was composed by Liz Lucero from Splitcoast stampers but it holds true for us stitchers as well as stampers and paper crafters. Thought you might get a kick out of this.
THE SUPPLY COLLECTORS TWELVE STEPS
1. We admitted we were powerless over craft supplies - that our lives (or at least our space) had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that our sister crafters could help us return to sanity.
3. Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to ourselves and not be influenced by coupons and bargains.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of all our supplies.
5. Admitted to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our shopping.
6. Were entirely ready to realize that shopping is not a defect of character. We are not bad people for buying supplies, we just buy too much of what we don’t need.
7. Humbly asked ourselves “Do we really need to buy this?”.
8. Made a list of all persons and places we could donate to and became willing to do so.
9. Made direct donations to such people or places wherever possible, except when they really didn’t want our supplies.
10. Continued to take inventory of our supplies and when we were overstocked promptly admitted it.
11. Sought though creating and using our existing products to improve our space and our mojo.
12. Celebrate our creativity.
LOL… I love it. Hello my name is Jaunice and I am a craft supply addict. That’s why I have the following quote on my email.
"There is a very fine line between hobby and mental illness."
On that funny but true note… I will say goodnight.
