Jan 23rd- and I haven't spent a crafting dime this month! I've enjoyed reading everyone's ideas, especially about the cards for the nursing homes, etc. Love the idea of doing something you enjoy, that will bring a smile to someone's face as well. Double smiles- like a 2 for 1 ! MIL is in a nursing home, across the country, so maybe a call there is a place I can start with that idea. Thank you for the inspiration.
I live in a small town where we only have a Michael's. No LSS, no Archivers, No Joann's, etc. So resisting the shopping for me consists mostly of deleting those lovely SALE SALE SALE emails. I do make a long weekend shopping trip a couple of times a year out of town and do my craft shopping then as well- since this year is all about using my stash, and getting rid of clutter- it will be a well planned out list before I do go, which won't be for several months.
