Crafty and Compulsive

Crafty and compulsive , that's how I describe myself these days...
  I have several shopping carts in several stores waiting for me to hit the "SEND" button...
  I have a Pinterest page 2014 CHA WANTS
  Why?  I don't need a thing...  but like most other people I know, see, online friends, we have this need ...
  I LOVE crafty stuff, I love to look at touch it, organize it, move it around, pack it up and show it off!
The last week I have engaged in, a shopping trip with a six year granddaughter to hobby lobby,had a rant in a local group, and learned of a local stamp shop closing her doors in the next few weeks..
I have dubbed the "LSS" local scrapbook store term to  
                   LAST STORES STANDING

 I have printed and organized all my photos since October!
 Yippee they are printed! OOPS I have 4 shoe box's that need scrapped and added to albums ....
 so am excited to get busy!
So how our your New Years plans going...
1. still eating better
2. Working on the "LESS"  cleared out all junk drawers since 2010

It all started with a few sheets of pretty paper...

Do you want to get the attention of 86 women in a crowd of 100?
Yes this a total addiction... is there a group for this? yes ...
 enablers unite... we are collecting something?
 My favorite words:

 any thing crafty, paper, artsy, hobby store, creative , paint, ink.... you get it?
 Yes or you have left by now....
I have been trying to let go "LESS" it is so hard, so lately I am called to young mom's  you know them the 25-33 year old mom with 2.5 children , a dog, a mortgage, photo snapping super mom!
Invite them , share your stuff, heck give a box of it away (you won't miss it)
SHARE  your craft whatever it is  NO scrap booking is not dying... it has a changed ..
 lets get it done quickly....Project Life, Instagram, .
go back where did you start?  I love all things paper 
WHY? did you start ...

Please leave a comment... I will be giving away this stamp from Elle's Studio on January 24th,
 Just in time for Valentine's projects....
This is the Good Life ... lets enjoy it....
 BTW we went for one year follow up this week so far all is GOOD!
thanks for stopping by,

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
So as we are into a new year, I hope everyone has made new resolutions, has picked their one little word, stock piled project life, and survived the first three days of the new diet?
New beginnings... a change , I am not there yet ... so yes I intend to eat healthier,  no word for me last year was a total loss so if I did it would be "LESS' and "NO",
 I need less , less clutter, less stress, less worry.
NO- I have the right to say NO , No I can't , No I won't,  just no without reason.
As a paper-holic , crafter, scrapbooker I hope to do more, journal more and tell the story... not perfectly...
 I had to laugh someone asked what are those folded Project life cards for?  I said to write notes ...that maybe no one will ever see... to myself... Yes I cared, What was I thinking? Thoughts we think as we go through the process... will anyone look at these in the future, will they dump them in the dumpster  ( I saw this done a few years ago as my family cleaned out the in laws house  SO SAD).
 thinking WOW my mom did all this crap when she could have been spending time with us?
It has made me rethink my process the last few days ... a quick note of photo, in the sleeves and move on... it does not have to be perfect!

I am not sure if I will continue blogging this year ... maybe it is me rambling thoughts or maybe it is my way to get the junk out I think, but whatever I do I try to find the humor in day to day struggles. What are your New Year's intentions?
Happy New Year and thanks for stopping by,
 A friend sent me this year.. I think she has it right!
