Craft Stash

Okay okay… so I’ve always had a bit of a hoarding problem when it comes to my craft stash – I realize this. But after seeing this post from Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous, it made me laugh out loud because just the other day I think Danny finally realized the extent of it. He knew I had a lot of yarn and was accumulating a lot of fabric… but earlier this week he went looking for something in the guest room (or what I call my sewing room) :). He came back and said something along the lines of “I didn’t realize you’d filled up every drawer!” Ooops… he caught me ;) haha At least I know I’m not alone… :) Until next time,

Online Fabric Shopping

Just consider this Part 2. of my I Think I Have A Fabric Problem post. In the past, I would’ve said – leave me alone too long with my computer and all of a sudden boxes of clothes may find their way to our doorstep (not sure how that happens). Now, leave me alone too long with my computer and all of a sudden the deliveries have switched to fabric. It’s knits galore! Plus one silk crepe de chine. :) I followed this advice and checked out Girl Charlee and Mood Fabrics. Love them both! And both orders came super quick! I do have plans for each of these… so they shouldn’t stay on the shelf too long! It’s nearly impossible to get a good photo of my fabric… it fits perfectly in the little space by the guest/sewing room door… but it’s at a terrible angle to get a photo… this doesn’t include all the new stuff, and all of my bulky fabrics are currently stored in the top of the guest/sewing room closet (not …

I Think I Have a Fabric Problem

Yesterday I went to get my hair done (for the first time in over a year by the way… I need to get better at that) :/ …but the place I went to was right by Jo-Ann’s. So naturally I had to go inside… just to look around… Came out 45 minutes later with these…   That officially brings me up to 128 different fabrics in my stash. Yes, I’ve kept count… I actually have a spreadsheet to keep track of everything. That’s how I know I have a problem. I’ve only been doing this since July! I’m pretty sure it’s normal, though. Right!? I’ve done the same thing with my yarn stash. I’m just providing myself the opportunity to be inspired and make something any time the mood strikes. Plus, who can pass up a good fabric sale!? (not me, apparently)


Last week, Danny told me that he thinks I have an addiction to dresses. Just because, sometimes, late at night, when I should be going to bed, I instead go online and shop for dresses (how can anyone resist all of the adorable and reasonably-priced dresses on ModCloth) and then make up reasons why I “need” them (even though I wear a uniform every day)… that doesn’t mean I’m addicted… does it? Hmm… So anyway, now he’s trying to tell me I have a dog addiction. I don’t see what’s so wrong with wanting to save every single stinkin’ adorable puppy face out there. The BDAR volunteer group on Facebook always posts the urgent dogs in Wyoming that need foster homes. Now that we’re not fostering anymore, it kills me inside every time I look at all those faces. Today, I guess someone came in to drop off 12 dogs at one of the shelters that we work with… 12! I just want to pick one (or maybe 3) and say we’ll take him/her/them! Please …
