As clean as it gets

Let me make a disclaimer first. A couple of disclaimers.
1) I am not a photographer.
2) I have yet to learn how to make fancy borders around my pix and not scrunch them all together.
3) Yes, I have a lot of stamps. And paper. And punches. And.

As my MIL put it today "Oh dear, you must have at least $10,ooo dollars in here (stamp room). This is where I probably (or at least should have) turned beet red. Nope. I've been at it for 22 years now, and a quick calculations tells me that's ..... $454/year ($37.88/month). Saying her figure is accurate. If you ask me, that's not so shabby! I could spend a lot more on therapy. Right? Who's with me here???

Ah, all is well. I've come to the conclusion that I purposely keep my stamp room in disarray to ward of on-lookers and would-be judges. After all, if my room is "too messy to show" I don't go through possible ridicule at my hobby (ok, obession!) I KNOW I spend money on stamps and stuff. I'm OK with that. Will I ever use it all? Probably not. But it sure is fun having all these goodies at my finger-tips just waiting to be played with.

Now off to clutter up this place, it's too clean.

Happy crafting!

[chuckles] I'm with you on the price of theapy! I've been working real hard these last few days to clean my space up, not as far along as you yet. (saw your post on SCS, btw. -AnniePanda)
Blessings and happy stamping!

It looks so nice and inviting... happy stamping!

And $10K sounds pretty darn good to me. Why not?

I'm with you Karan! I've cleaned out my supplies a couple of times, and I'm probably in denial to think I'll ever actually use ALL of what I have, but how can you put a price on the sheer pleasure of being surrounded with what you love?
