Last year around this time, I was on a painting kick. I was not into crocheting at all. Also, I had gathered all types of random craft supplies. My craft space was shrinking while my supplies grew. In a rush of "inspiration", I gave all of my yarn away to my mom and most of my crafting supplies to Charity.
And I regret it.
Really. I used to never have to go to the craft store. I would just go because they were having a sale or I had a coupon. If I wanted to make something, I knew there was something in my stash I could make it with. And sometimes I would have something, that I never thought I would use - but in a burst of inspiration, I would think of the PERFECT thing. Like when I made the Fall Tote. That is one of my favorite projects, ever and I never thought I would use that fabric. I am so glad I kept it.
But now that I have gotten rid of the "useless" fabric, I can't use it anymore. :(
I mourned for my stuff. ESPECIALLY my yarn.
So imagine my joy, when my mom GAVE ME BACK the yarn!!!!! She hadn't ever used it, but didn't want to see it get thrown out - so she just kept it for me! And I just got it back!
So, the moral of the story is DON'T get rid of your stuff (that you love)! Instead put it in the attic or something...
