I've done a great job at scaling back, I do find it difficult to explain to some of my local crafter friends, which is a bit unpleasant really. I have so much and admit I'm a little embarrassed by it. A few of my friends along with my DH like to show off my Craft Room ( he did a very large addition to our home and I understand his excitement in showing it off) and most of the people they want to show it too are not crafters, they look at it with "Huge Eyes"
and I feel guilt. I would rather it be my own guilty pleasure, I don't like to rub it in others faces. I did find creative ways to acquire so much, being a SU demo for 10 yrs. was huge...I couldn't justify taking $$$ from our household budget, so that's how I justify my own cRaZiness! LOL
