Stash Ban? ....What Stash Ban

For those of you who are not scrappers or card makers this self inflicted ban means I must not buy anything related to my hobby for the foreseeable future, as my credit cards are groaning under the strain.

The problem is I have very little will power which is probably why my knees are yelling " Diet or we strike" and the doughnuts and strawberry tarts across the road are crying "Eat me". You have guessed it ... I have tuned out my knees but I can clearly hear the cakes calling!
Well while trying not to think about cigarettes and trying not to pop out to the bakers, a mere 100 yards away, for one of their glorious toffee doughnuts,I decided to surf the stash shops for a bit of virtual window shopping .....BIG MISTAKE .... I should have got the doughnut.

I unfortunately stumbled across K& Co's Blue Awning and a love affair began so strong that resistance was futile ...and the parcel will be delivered in a few days!!!!

Having confessed this I am off to hang my head in shame.

Paper is an essential hun - should be excluded from any ban .... along with anything else that is an essential like sticky stuff, glossy accents, crafting tools, card, embellish,ents, sparkly bits .... I could go on :0)

It's not your fault! There's an invisible stash gnome inside every computer. It reads our brainwaves and when we see stash we like, it hypnotises us and makes us press any keys which say 'Basket', 'Checkout' or 'Order'. It is only when we have completed the order that we are released from its power and by then it's too late!!

Big mistake!!! whenever i go 'virtual' shopping it always ends in tears! My DH keeps saying 'what is this paypal for? & this one? & this one', when the credit card bill arrives!!
