All aboard for a quick trip to the Netherlands! Cor, I wish!! I would be off to Leiden in a heartbeat, but I just don‘t think it’s safe at this time. And anyway, I am way too busy! But do head on over to our Clarity matters blog – the lads are in full swing over there, and there’s a little competition going too.
Me? I’m up to my ass (that’s actually Dutch for arse!!) in stamps and stencils and masks and pens and ink pads and paint and papers and all sorts of lovely stuff that I am really struggling to part with! So much for playing binit! I am shuffling most of it around the Shac-Shack, having a little dance with it, dreaming up projects I could do with it, and ultimately deciding I can’t possibly binit it – I WILL NEED IT !!!!
Powertex! Spent a small fortune on this gear. It’s still in the packaging, waiting for me to play!
Time to stop for the day. Dave has helped by making the shelves in the backroom narrower. Now I can get in!!! Hahahahaha. Also, they needed a little reinforcing. Clearly the stash is getting too heavy…
This crafting lark is most definitely an addiction. When I used to drink, I could never have just one of anything – and therein lay my dilemma. So ultimately, it was easier to just not have the first one! When I wander round my artroom, I see duplicates of everything, triplicates too. I can’t just have one of anything! It’s in my DNA. The whole minimalist movement is lost on this old bird!
But there you go. Are you like me? I bet lots of us have enough craft stash to sink the Bismarck! But in our defence may I say, your Honour, that it’s a healthly obsession. Crafting, your Honour, crafting.
Stay safe x
Love and hugs
