Here's my desk from Saturday. A bit messy, with the evidence of a crafting session, but not the results! The cards I made are in my previous post. But you can see my box with Cuttlebug bits and bobs, small dies mostly and the embossing mat. Alongside is a Xyron for putting glue onto papers and embellishments. There's my pink scoring board, ink pads, non-stick craft sheet and magnetic cutting board.
Looking at all the stuff on my craft table, and then the wider view as well......
...with even more crafty stuff on view, it makes me wonder just how much money I've spent over the years. I have two whole wardrobes of stash. Lately I've not bought anything, trying to save cash, but I'm astonished at the number of items I have actually collected!
My father still keeps a black book itemising everything he buys for the house. It goes back to what he had when he got married and moved into a rented house, right down to the cost of his hairbrush! And he still has that hairbrush at age 86. It makes very interesting and eye-opening reading at the cost of things years ago.
I think I would definitely be shocked at what I've spent on Stash if I'd done the same thing and kept a running total.
