Default If I don't have <fill in the blank>, I will die!

Do you ever get those "I have to have this NOW or my life will not be complete" moments? Yesterday I decided I HAD TO HAVE a wood-grain embossing folder. I saw online that Hobby Lobby has one, so I went after dinner (HL is just 3 miles from my house). I didn't find one and thought "that's it, I will hunt this down from every website or store", then saw it on the bottom peg. And I had a 40% coupon so I paid less than $4.

It's still in the package on my craft desk. I might not use if for months. But I HAD to have it last night.

Please tell me I am not alone.

I'm raising my hand in our ---- Addicted circle!

I WANTED the Martha Stewart Gifts border punch. Went to 4-5 stores looking for it-not to be found. Went online and searched for the lowest price and lowest shipping charge and it's on it's way.

By the way, I also have the HL Woodgrain EF. I have another but like the size of the grain. My other one is a little too bold (IMHO) to use on cards.

Me too!!!! You are not alone!!!

In fact, I am fighting the "need" for the wood grain EF right now! I'm finished with Fall cards and have decided to skip Thanksgiving cards this year, so I don't really need it until next year. Of course, sometimes when I wait until later, I can't find it later. The "Chtistmas Cheer" Cricut is an example of that. I awaited and now that I've decided I really want it,it is retired and expensive on eBay. Kicking myself!!!

Raising my hand also, my need right now is a silhouette - haven't bought it yet...mainly due to the price. The ATG was one of those gotta have it now - did get it with coupon but had to go to three stores before I finally got it.

I love my watercolor pencils and I use them, but I saw a card somewhere where the person just swore by watercolor CRAYONS. I decided that I couldn't wait one day to try them.. Like the OP, I immediately drove to the nearest Michael's (30 minutes) but had NO coupon. I paid too much for them and when I got home and tried them, I hated them. I haven't even felt like practicing with them to try and improve and I continue to use the pencils. Bad!

Chocolate! Oh wait, we're talking about stamping? Well, chocolate still. And while I'm eating my chocolate, I then fixate on the next new must-have on my list! Recently it was an ATG (which I bought last weekend) and now it's a guillotine paper cutter. My birthday is coming up and if DH hasn't bought it for me, I will likely order it the next day!!

I adore watercolor crayons! Once you get used to them, they are just amazing.

I know!! Everyone but me has great luck with them. I really believe if I practice, they will work out, but change is hard! Plus, I need to justify the investment.

K - serious domino effect on this particular issue... I saw a tutorial for a really cute gift made with one of the Sizzix ScoreBoards dies, so I needed that die RIGHT NOW! I bought it, realized that I needed the extended cutting pads for it so, of course, I needed those RIGHT NOW! I got everything home and went to try it out - 1/2" too wide for my Cuttlebug - had to buy the Big Shot RIGHT NOW!!! Still haven't used the die, and that was about a year ago....*sigh*....... At least I've used the Big Shot quite a bit!

i had to order the SU woodgrain embossing folder just the other night. I think it's the fall in the air that makes it a must have right now.
