As crafters, many of us also tend to be hoarders… at least when it comes to supplies. If you’re anything like me, you probably have skein upon skein of yarn in your craft closet, sheets of fabric strewn every which way in your living room, and piles of scrapbook paper covering your coffee table. It’s just way too hard to resist sales at the craft store, and I always end up turning my living space into my own personal craft shop! I always thought this was great… I’d never have to run to the craft store for supplies since I was always stocked to the brim… but recently my craft stash got so out of control that I feel like I should be on an episode of the TV show “Hoarders”!
