Well, here I sit talking to myself. There is something so therapeutic about that. I can say what I want without worrying about hurting anyone's feelings. Wait a minute, there's always a chance that someone will come and read this so I guess I better engage the filter. Still selling craft supplies; I have sold so much and haven't even made a dent in what I have. The message here is that I had too much stuff, but funny that I didn't recognize that until now. Oh, wait, I know why, I seldom put stuff away and my memory is not great, so I would forget what I had and buy more. What a loser.......or winner depending on whether you're an optimist or pessimist.

We are expecting another grandchild and I hope to have the house cleared out by the time she comes, so I have five months. go, sandy.

We decided to replace the disgusting carpet in our bedroom, so we've been sleeping in a spare room while all the furniture is out of ours. I'll be happy to be back in the waterbed.

My newest ebay adventure is making paper tole girls for people to put on their scrapbook pages. Some I make into sets that will make a 2 page layout, including ribbon, flowers, photo mats and charms, and some I just make the fairies or angels and sell them by themselves. They are SO CUTE. I love doing them.

Back again for my May missive. The scrap supplies have been selling, but the pile doesn't seem to be getting smaller. In the meantime, I keep making flowers and am drowning in a sea of blooms. I have several auctions ending today, so that will be more stuff out of the house. We'll see if that makes a difference, but I kind of doubt it. I guess I will keep plugging away at clearing out craft supplies that I have never used, will never use, or used a few times and will never use again. Of course, just like when I give things to the goodwill, I know in a few weeks, there will be the one thing that I suddenly have a desperate need for, but I'm willing to deal with that.

Okay, seriously??? I haven't been here for over a month? Well, let me tell you what I've been doing. I have reached the point where I could audition for the reality show, "Hoarders", and am getting serious about clearing some stuff out. So far, I have packed up ten boxes of craft supplies, mostly scrapping and card making supplies, plus a lot of other things and am listing them on ebay. I feel bad about selling the things that I just HAD to have and have never used, but it is what it is and somebody might as well be scoring from my acquisitiveness. I am trying to make a rule that when something new comes in, something else has to go out, but that isn't going to make any difference until I get some of these piles of stuff out of here. I have a big box in every room where I'm putting stuff for the Goodwill and hopefully, by this time next year my house will be something that Martha Stewart could be proud of. I'm still making and selling flowers, and I've started knitting again to use up some of this yarn. I always give my friends a hooded back zip baby sweater when they have a baby and my stock of sweaters was dwindling. Right now there are so many girls at work that are having babies, so I have to really get busy. Okay, I'm off to see if I can make a difference and will hopefully have a positive update soon.

I can't believe how long it's been since I've been here. So much has happened since then! I've been to Vegas, baby! But what's exciting to me now is that I've got some new thread and have ordered more for making the best flowers. I've also got an idea for a scrapbook page, but for that I would have to get off the couch, so it's not happening. I can't wait for my thread to come. I work this coming weekend, but I have Wednesday and Thursday off. Hope it comes then. I will post some pictures of flowers when I get some made.

Wow, I've been really busy, so haven't been here much. Work has been so busy, we broke the record for births in a year by about 4o and I think all 40 were in the last week of the year. I have a whole box of cards that I'm thinking of offering on ebay for one price. I've got so many supplies that I need to list, so here I sit not listing them. I need some motivation here.
