I have to STOP!!

I used to collect snowmen, but now it seems to be journals, note books, note pads etc. Why? I don't even use that many! But every time I see a cute one on sale I have to get it! My drawer is 1/2 full of brand new paper in all shapes, sizes and colors.  But now I've decided to stop buying any paper products until the drawer is empty!! - well - mostly empty :)


Do you have this problem? Or maybe you collect something else and can't seem to stop.

  1. LOL That's what I used to do when I would find craft stuff on clearnace! I quit. It was my New Year's Resolution for 2010. It appears that it will be my same resolution for 2011!

  5. I also collect things I don't always use....I have tons of threads, embroidery threads, buttons, ribblons, and more threads...did I mention wool, lot's of wool, lot's of crochet hooks, knitting needles, Turkish crochet hooks, tons and tons of stuff.
    And don't get me started on books, I can't help myself when I pass a charity shop, I buy everything they have in English ( I live in Norway ) .
    The problem is my house is too small...must move to bigger house ( or warehouse to store my stuff ) ha !

  6. LOL!!!! How timely! Just yesterday I was driving and thinking (sometimes not a good combination) and wondered what it was... me and this love for office supplies!!! I love all the "back to school" sales with each near school season because I just love the notebooks, note pads, and pens!! Love those pens! But not just any pen... blue ink and ultra fine point, and then all the markers!!! It's a sickness! LOL I feel your pain!

  9. Audrey - what a fun addiction. I love it. I have a book shelf half full of journals "I might use someday". This would be the topic of a great give away.

  14. anything craft related seems to whisper in my ear the minute I walk in a store. I look at it and think I could probably use that for something...lol I have learned to control the habit somewhat but it's so hard
