DeeAnn: I like your plan. I use what I like, and have FUN and if asked, I will make suggestions about materials or supplies I prefer, but never say they are the only acceptable ones. I love seeing things people create with supplies and machines I do not have. It is always so fascinating to me and teaches me something.
For the new year, I plan to spend more time enjoying my hobby. My room is now complete, and it has been crazy busy so I am not enjoying my time like I used to.
