When you don't have money you can't spend it, but heaven forbid I have extra money cause its gone to craft supplies. Got $100 for my birthday (birthday is tomorrow) from my dad today put it in the bank, came home and sat at my computer and a half hour later I have $10 left lol. That was fast. Can't imagine what would happen if I could spend what I want when I want lol.
Anyone else have a problem like mine? Lol

I find when I have money I spend it on other handmade things rather than supplies! I love supporting indie businesses!

My dad gave me $200 when I was in California. 

Mostly because he was worried about their gas prices and I was driving my moms big Escalde. 

I was down for a total of 10 days, the first 5 I spent mostly with my dad so he was buying gas the entire time. The last night is when he gave me the money, so by that point our trip was almost over and I was only going to have my mom's car for 3 more days... 

I decided to fill it up. Then spent the rest at Disneyland on my son, my nieces, myself, and my hubby. 

In all fairness, dad did say use it however you want LOL.

I do have the same addiction, and joanns sending 50% and 40% off coupons in the mail doesnt help. I love shopping for crafty things. The basement shows it! I have the same amount of things for crafts as the kids do toys.

I wish I had a craft store near me but the closest one is 2 hours away so I do most of my shopping online and I just live getting stuff in the mail!

whenever I have money to spend I spend it quickly on supplies and things. I spent several hundred dollars this month on yarn, an interchangeable knitting needle set, paint, canvas, wood paint panels and some brushes.
