What not to buy!

This post is a reminder to myself about the different products that I have collected over the years and haven't used. I've been spending a lot of time organizing and purging my scrap room. It is easy to hoard cute stuff, but at the end of the day if it isn't being used - it needs to go!

Buttons: I've got jars and jars of them, but I never ever use them.  Buttons=dust collectors.

Mini album kits: It pains me that I spent $30-$50 on mini album kits. I have one that hasn't even been touched (purchased 2009). I decided to take the kit apart and use the supplies separately. I DO NOT DO MINI ALBUMS!! There is never enough room for photos. I am a 4x6 girl.

Page kits: Along the same line, I have purchased many page kits because I loved the theme etc., but the truth is, I like to do my own thing and it is harder for me to make stuff within a the limits of a pre-made page kit.

Mists: Luckily I don't have a lot, but the ones I do have are barely used.

Patterned Paper: Must.Stop.Buying. unless it is for a very specific project.

Large stamps: The kind where you have to have a special contraption (still in package) to use them.

Single image punches:  An owl, a rabbit, a snowflake, a circle, a square.... never use. I do use my border punches though.

I am sure this list will continue to be updated. For now, I must remember what not to buy!

Happy Happy Happy Card

Anyone who watches a certain show about a family of country folks and some ducks might recognize this quote. I have a friend who absolutely loves the show DD so this was my attempt at a humorous card.
