You know how you hate all that clutter that currently takes up an entire spare room in the basement? The clutter that you have moved over and over and fills way too many (in your opinion) boxes marked CRAFT STUFF? And you wonder why on earth we need all that stuff? And why can't we get rid of some of it?
It's so when I am in the middle of sewing Halloween costumes-- and I come to a point where I decide that the ties for the apron need to be just the right shade of yellow, and I really don't want to pack everyone up and drive all the way to the craft store,
I will happen to have, buried in a corner, some yarn in that perfect shade, and (inexplicably because I don't crochet...but I guess I tried to learn once) a crochet hook, which then enable me to make just the right thing for the costume at the exact moment I need it, and thereby my creative flow is not interrupted, gas is saved, and children can continue watching, "It's the great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" rather than being dragged to the "favric store".
Doesn't that make sense?
Now do you get it?
I know you guys get it.
What are they going to be? Here's a hint.
