Confessions of a Craft Hoarder...

... and the little girl who is setting me free :). I don't know why but I tend to hoard crafty things. I think it started with my 3rd grade sticker collection which still resides upstairs in our home's office closet. Yes, those stickers have moved with me 4 times and if I were to move again, they would go with me. Next I began "collecting" scrapbook papers that once again reside in our home's office closet. What is it about using the papers and stickers that bothers me so; wouldn't it be sharing them with others rather than losing them forever? :)

This morning Anna came downstairs and after saying her morning phrase of "my clock turned yellow" she immediately asked to do a craft. We went to our craft closet and I pulled out the cutest little piggy that we decided to decorate. The pig was part of the fabulous Alex Toys Giant Busy Box that (sigh) Anna received as a gift for her SECOND birthday. Enough is enough, time to let go and have some crafty fun!

I think I gave Anna that present! :) Taylor got one, too, that year and we still have crafts left from it that we pull out from time to time. If you ever have any new craft ideas, send them my way. We are running low on craft ideas. We did sand art this morning...messy but fun!
