Over the past few weeks I've not been feeling particularly crafty but have been spending some time trying to organise myself. Over the years I have subscribed on and off to various magazines and have collected loads of craft books. I decided to cut out all the projects I'm interested in (from mags NOT books) and any inspirational pics I like too. I now have 3 leaver arch files full of projects I want to have a go at (2 that are mostly beading/jewellery making and 1 that is all sorts of crafty goodness). I also have a few notebooks with my ideas and inspirational clips and dread to think how many projects I have saved on my computer. Craft book wise, I have a 6' shelf practically filled.
Somehow I don't think I need to buy any more craft books or mags for the next few millenia......even if there is some fantastic new technique that NEEDS to be tried. I haven't tried all the fanastic old techniques I already have. Save your pennies Gemma and don't renew your subscriptions when they come up- you dont need more projects!!
And don't get me started on supplies....maybe I should have joined Vonnie's Craft Neutral challenge?
