I’m on a Diet

I am participating in Sparkletart’s 30 Day Challenge

http://www.sparkletart.com/rsr/2012/03/30-day-craft-cleanse.html

on a modified basis. I have a stamp convention at the end of April and my plan is to buy nothing  crafty for the month of April until the convention. Friends keep me honest, I know my husband will. I also plan to keep my desk top clean each night, I must put everything away.   I hope I haven’t bitten off more than I can chew.

 

Right now there is no space on my desk. So this has got to help. It is said that you can change any habit in 21 days.  Here’s hoping I get a new habit of clearing away my space!

 

If I manage the buying freeze it will make the convention at the end even sweeter and better funded (all cash).

 

I have already started the purge. I’m giving away to a new stamper friend (hey Thelma) my full set of Adirondack ink. I have not touched them in years, since I drank the Stamping Up kool-aide.

Sweating here as it is so hard for me to part with anything. But hey it felt good. I bet there are more things I can give away!

 

In the Hand of the Creator,

Pam,
You are too funny. I hope you can make a difference in your stash by participating in this challenge. I am too big of a chicken to try anything major like that. I have been purging a little at a time, but it doesn't go far enough to get rid of a whole line of ink pads. Don't you know that Tim Holtz is going to do something extremely special with those inkpads in the next couple of months... then where will you be? (LOL, just enabling a bit here).

My Stampin Up pads are not even in the same room. I NEED to give those up, but I can't do it. Good luck, best wishes!

@Sandy I kept the reinkers....bluhahahaha. what ink do you use. I still have over 600 inkpads even after having given those away and I'm collecting Paper Trey Ink's new pads. But at least I have more room for them.
