Confessions of a Craft Hoarder!

What is a Creative Roll for you and how do you handle it? For me a Creative Roll means I can't sleep, eat, think, or do anything without thinking about the next fabulous idea waiting to explode from my brain. Which is probably why I have so much so little room LOL. Over the years I've tapped into every area of mixed media Art I could fit myself into, every craft I fancied and every Artistic indulgence my wallet and senses allowed, save for those that 'friends that love me' intervened on. And Intervention is something most Artists understand. When I moved a few months ago I found approximately 30 something bottles and tubes of adhesives, glues. Some only partially used, others not even opened.
See those paper racks? That was in my living room!

Now for me, Creative Roll and Craft Hoarding sort of went hand in hand! Now that I've moved most of my stash is in the garage. And... that is good and bad. Good because now the garage is hoarding, not me! And bad because I have to stop and think LOL and then do the right thing! No more running to the store for replacements all willy nilly! Now instead of 8 cans of spray adhesive I have 3. And instead of 10 supersized boxes of photo paper I have 3. And...well you get the message.

Recently I've begun sewing again. Oh goodness me! That's a whole new kind of hoarding. There's fabric and ribbons and attachments and well.... what's a girl to do! I might need therapeutic craft organization help!

On a good note, I've created some fab bags and other than fabric any and everything I could need is...well, right under my nose.

See these and more at my Etsy Shop:
Are you a Craft Hoarder? Why types of things do you collect most? How do you try to organize? Any tips and notes would more than loved by us!!!

Ok so I'm off to create some more after I rearrange my room from last nights projects LOL. Have a fab day and Do It In Color!!!
