Oddly attached

I have decided that I am oddly attached to scrapbook supplies (who isn't, really?).

Since the beginning, I would become attached to a certain item in particular, seek it out, stalk websites for it, buy every possible color, etc. However, the clincher to all of this is that I would never use said item because I loved it too much.

What is this nonsense, you ask? If you love it and are attached to it, why would you not use it?? I wish I knew the answer. At first it was the decorative edged scissors, (every style), then those paper doll people (I still have tons & can't part with them), fibers (you name the color & texture), the Junkitz alphabet buttons (every color manufactured), buttons (I never met a button I didn't like) and now it's journaling spots and Basic Grey Phoebe! I've had BG Phoebe for months & I've only used one sheet, I just can't part with it. Journaling spots are building into quite a nice pile, I think I've used two. Why? Why must I hoard things like this? You'd think I lived through the Depression or something! You would think I'd be smart enough to figure out that eventually the items I covet, are the ones that never get used & end up collecting dust. Maybe there's a 12 step program out there to help crazies like me? I don't know.

I'm going to make a promise right here on my blog in front of all the hundreds of people who read this (ok, there's not really hundreds of you, maybe 3?) to use an item that I am oddly attached to, this week. Let's see if I can't help myself here.
