Although this post would have been more appropriate on January 1st, I'm starting this whole "new year" thing a little late this year. It's fitting, as I'm just about to finish up the last of my Christmas presents. And since I haven't broken the rule I'm about to set down in words, I'm still on track. Ready?
I'm not buying anything craft related this year.
Not one ball of yarn, spool of thread, piece of interfacing, pattern, zipper or button. If I don't have it, I don't need to make it. Simple as that. My IK, Marie Claire Idees and Adorn subscriptions will still arrive, but that will be the only influx. So while I'm wishing I'd ordered, say, the Bird in Hand pattern in 2007, I'm just hoping it will still be available in 2009. I think this will be good for me. I'll finish projects. I'll use my stash. Hopefully this will help me put crafting where it belongs in my life.
