Stuff...

Today, well maybe all week or better yet all month I have been trying to clean out my spare bedroom/sewing/storage room. To be more specific, my husband is tired of seeing all my treasures all over the house. I tend to work at my computer desk most. Even hooking up my sewing machine and sewing while surfing the internet and watching tv(after 18 years of phone customer service you learn to multi-task!). Right now I am sitting among beads, sequins, way overdue greeting cards, scissors, my pin catch and of course buttons! I am finding more and more "stuff" that I have accumulated over the last 30 years and really need to get crackin' on the craftin' to get some of it used up. But do you find that you love everything so much that you hate to part with it? Speaking of buttons. I have two 5 gallon buckets full of buttons. No kidding! I went through a phase where I searched goodwill, antique markets, auctions, and even my mom's sewing closet for buttons. And yes, I admit, I spent way to much for 8lbs of them on ebay. Sewing notions, fabric, and buttons are a few of my favorite things. I come from a long line of "stuff" collectors so I guess I better get back to sorting it all........
