  • Oh here we go....

    -I have a boat load of beads for making my own jewelry (I stopped cause I really had no idea what I was doing unless it was a kit with directions)

    -Lots'o yarn and a few knitting needles so I could teach myself to knit. HA!!!

    -I FINALLY let my kids use some of the ridiculous amounts of card stock I have for wanting to do greeting cards. (btw: I made invites for 3 parties I threw and that was as far as that went.)

    -Paint for painting wooden letters.

    -And finally....sewing. I love to sew. I learned this past April and I got out of control. I literally have to avoid going into Hobby Lobby and JoAnn's for the sheer fact that I will spend no less than $20 on fabric for projects I do not have time to do with 2 toddlers at home.

    Oh and this is where I'll add my family of 4 lives in a medium sized 3 BR apartment. We no longer have a kitchen table for my sewing stuff!

  • I have tons of scrapbook supplies and buttons (I love making things and adorning them with buttons). I have tons of stuff and no time either - but I am a kickin' organizer, so at least it's not in the way!

  • me but most is for my business

  • My crafting got so out of control that I turned it into a business. I make jewelry from handmade paper and fabric beads (which allows and uses up several types of supplies at once.) I also have handmade wallhangings and items from repurposed items. Keeps me busy and pretty much out of the craft stores unless I actually need something.
