Sadly, it seems kinda silly to shout it from the roof tops now that today’s issue is out. Which, by the way, I read this morning with a tea lazing on the couch.

As if Mollie Makes wasn’t already such a beautiful magazine. I’d love to own an actual paper one some day but since I renewed my digital subscription before I could find it for purchase near me I can’t bring myself to pay money for a paper copy when I already have one. Although sometimes the freebie gifts do tempt me. Now they’ve got Gathered and it’s weekly and I’m already issues behind!
I think it’s still offering 5 issues for free if you subscribe in some way, if you’re part of the iCrowd. They don’t charge your account until the 5 free issues are over.
I think I have a problem.
Literally, *every* Michelle Patterns pattern. Every single one.
I mean most people today have too much stuff. We’ve been trying at home to keep our ‘stuff’ minimal. We’ve banned knick knacks unless they come from our travels or really *mean* something to us. With our kids, while we are careful with how much we buy them, it’s hard with an October birthday and a December birthday and then Christmas 2 days after that . . . it gets a bit crazy. Honestly, it’s usually the reason I advocate for us to travel at Christmas, thinking we’ll skip the gifts mountain but it doesn’t work.
When you’re a crafter of course you acumulate stuff. Before getting into sewing I did papercrafts, cards and scrapbooks mostly. Then after starting my blog and getting into fabric now I have yardage, then a fat quarter collection and then I keep a scrap bin. THEN I have smaller scraps for 1 inch magnet making and then I keep the smallest scraps ever for hair clips and such. It’s insane.
Now add to that the things I’ve started to accumulate on my iPad and Macbook.
Folder and folders of things to look at later and get inspired or ideas to make. As if I need to add to my to do list or ‘things I want to make’.
Then there’s the business research and books and things to read I have as well. Classes to take, things to learn. It’s tough to balance it all when what you love to do, drives you to do it more and makes you happy but is hard to fit into your ‘normal’ life.
Someone please tell me you have this going on too!
