Can you tell I am mad. I hate bullies.
That would make me mad also!!! So sorry for your loss!
I had a friend who was basically bullied some by a scrapbooking group organization (won't name the company) when she was just starting. They gave her a hard time when she wanted to use patterned paper or other supplies. They made her feel like she could only use *their brand* of stuff, and everything she did was wrong.
I guess I'm going to hold onto my stuff; although, I probably don't have as much as many people. It does get overwhelming though; constantly having to organize it. The reason I'm holding onto my stuff is that two or three times I have gotten rid of things, and then actually went out and rebought the same things, because I wanted to use them more than I thought I would. My friend tells me she does'nt like to get rid of things too often, because you just go out and buy more stuff to replace it.
That reminds me, I need to organize and straighten up my craft room again!
