They say the first step to admitting any addiction is to admit you have a problem. So here goes...I may be addicted to paper. Not just any paper, but the pretty, scrapbooking kind of paper. How do I know this is a problem you ask??
Recently, I took inventory of all the paper I had in my craft room. To say I have alot is an understatement. That it and of itself is not the issue. I love to scrapbook and make cards so you would expect that I would have reams of paper at my disposal. The issue - I actually found myself saying "I can't use that to scrapbook...it's far too pretty". What?? Why would I buy pretty paper if not to create beautiful books full of memories and cards to give away to my friends? Because it makes me happy to look at them. I know...very weird. Remember I never said I was normal.
Now that I've admitted it, I should be on the road to recovery, right? I wish I could say yes but I was at the craft store yesterday and could not help myself...there was this SUPER cute girlie paper that made me smile. Instead of trying to get over it, I plan to find other ways to use it. Up first, I'm going to create an art display for my craft room. Beautifully framed paper that will cheer me up whenever I glance over at it.
As for the "problem" I'm going to try to keep it more under control. I said try, but I make no promises.
