The first step...

... is admitting that you have a problem. I have a problem that I never in a million years thought I would have. I'm addicted. To yarn. YARN! Not just any yarn, though... it's much more insidious than that. I'm addicted to yarn ON CLEARANCE.

Maybe it's not the yarn. It's the CLEARANCE thing that gets me every. single. time. Clearance means that it's all gone... no more... I can't change my mind and come back for it later, because, THERE IS NO LATER. And I don't like that. So, I buy it. All of it. It's really an issue. Thus far there's been significant eye-rolling, but no stern talking-to out of the husband. Probably because he's given up before he even starts. He's a pretty smart guy.

Eh. Bygones. I have a billion things to do (two baby showers in the next week), and waning motivation. I have a kitchen full of flowers to deal with. And it's hot. Hella hot. My garden seems to like it though, so I can't complain. Also, my house is 72 degrees and has been since March, so I can't complain about that either.

What was I going to post about? Oh right... just in case you've missed it, Craft Critique has a series of sneak peeks of upcoming summer CHA releases. AND, we'll have reporters on the floor starting today, all the way through the show. I'll keep the links updated.

That is so funny! I have a "problem" too. I'm addicted to ribbon, flowers, stamps and paper! Oh and if I find it on clearance . . . yep it's mine! So you are not alone in the addiction. : )
