What I DON'T like about Mo!

Welcome Blog Hopees!!!
Thanks for visiting!  And thanks to my bloggy buddies who always find some time to visit me!  Kisses to you all!

As part of the All About Me Challenge Blog Design Team, I was excited to be part of this blog hop!

If you're here as part of the AAM blog hop, THANK YOU!  You probably hopped over from Arlene's blog...so you're on the right track!  If you started here at my blog and want to start at the tbe beginning of the hop....GO HERE!  (Um, you really should cuz there's lots of prizes to be had!)

The prompt is Self-Improvement, (Your Biggest Flaw)!
And here's ONE of mine!  Maybe some of you can relate????

You see, since 2007 I've been REALLY scrapping up a storm!  I found that I needed to upgrade from an armoir (where I used to keep all my craft supplies) to a WHOLE ROOM!  I got my wish in 2008 and took over the extra bedroom in the house.  My room GREW FAST!  Since then, I've managed to collect BUNCHES of craft supplies!  It's just about FILLED TO THE RIM (ya know, like Brim?)....tell me if you get that!  LOL!

I am running outta space in my craft room!  Yikes!

So, on this layout I used ONLY old stash items and bits and pieces of scraps I had...THAT WAS MY OWN RULE!

And I am TOO EMBARASSED to take a photo of my mess to show you all, so you have to settle for the mess I create on this layout!

Ugh...I also have tons of stuff like clothes, old CD's...uh....TAPES (whaaat?....yes), ripped old clothes (Hey, I might be able to use em on a layout.), shoes, old college papers (yah, like I'll ever read em again), old statements (Now how long do we need to keep that crap for tax purposes?) and...tons of other stuff.  My house is soooooooo stinking full of shtuff!  I NEED HELP!

So, here's some things I plan to do.

1) Sort through Craft Room and PURGE...whimper.
2) Collect old clothing and donate them.
3) Maybe have a garage sale (not likely, too much work).
4) Get rid of anything I haven't used in a couple years.
5) Give away or donate old kid things and toys.
6) Dig up all the stuff I've been hiding in the garage and give it away.
7) To buy something new, I have to get rid of or use something old in exchange.
(Mo, do I REALLY have to?.........YES!)
8) Stop buying things unless you have a plan to use it...right away. (I usually put my purchase aside and find it in a bag about a year later and remembering that I had a project planned which I never started....ugh...what a let down.)

That's all I've got so far!  If you have any other tips....PLEASE share!

And this leads into my next topic......HOW BOUT A GIVEAWAY!  (Hmmmm...maybe I'll have to do more of these to achieve my goal of Purging!)....hint hint!

Just leave a comment and give me a tip on how I can stop hoarding things or let me know what your flaw is (he he....c'mon share) and I will randomly pick a comment to win the prize!  Or you can even just leave me a comment on tips to achieve my purging goal!

And the lovely RAK below consists of everything in the photo!  Yes!  That you see there is a 12x12 pack of My Mind's Eye Designer Paper!  All these items are unused!  The stamp pad is still in the shrink wrap and comes with an unopened reinker (by Stampin' Up!)...YAH!  I have 8 1/2 x 11 heavy cardstock, a  paper crimper, a cute stamp set, cupcake liners in 2 sizes (the larger size is a foil liner), 4 large binding rings, mini book elements (printed paper, pages and covers) and assorted metal embellishments!  Just click on the photo for a good close up!
