30 beads, 4 inches of copper chain, one closure and two findings used.   Ten thousand beads left in order to clear out the bead stash. 

I am pretty sure I am never, ever going to get all of it cleared out, short of just randomly shipping things to people.  Tongue

WOOT!  I created something!  *jumping up and down because my muse has returned*

It's not from my list, but that's okay. 
Maybe I should make a section for "random things that I make that have no purpose other than to make"

Any way... Behold!  I made a green and copper bracelet.  It's kind of random, but I like it.

ok--you win...wow...I have to admit, I actually get a high seeing everyone's stash and my mouth starts drooling...it is a sickness...I can't help it...I just love stuff...it makes me secure to know I can craft any time of day or night and even if I don't have a dime to spend, I have it in my stash somewhere...

omg--is that a beadazzler on your floor in front of the dresser?!!!

LOL.  No, it is one of two bead-a-day calendars.  The "bedazzler" is an industrial strength grometer (made out of  cast iron) with the rhinestone attachments.  *points to the other side of the room*  It's over there, next to the sewing machine, and equally unused.  Sad

I NEEEEEEED one!  You do not understand how badly I must have that.  Sadly, I have no yarnish talent what so ever.  Tongue  Ah well.  I will just admire from afar.

Sadly, I have so much that I don't even know what to do with it all.   It gets overwhelming.  

LOL!  That's not my "craft space".  That's the stuff that is brought out to work with.  If I ever get my craft room into a workable area, my hubster will probably have a heart attack.

Most of my craft stuff is donated as well. Either that or "grab bags" that my local thrift store puts together.

okay, everyone being so brave and posting their hoards has inspired me.  But...I am only posting these photos to make you all feel better.  Why will this make you all feel better?  Because this is only PART of the sadness that is my craft room. 

First up:  the ~unfinished~ jewelry projects.  Yep.  The black thing is chock full to overflowing with stuff that needs worked on:  repaired, closures added, restrung.  You name it. 

Next:  the 12 x 12 paper stash and the scrapbook "to be scrapped" stuff.  Left side is paper, right side is "to be scrapped".
Yes, that does say 12x12.  There is an equally frightening 8x8 and "scrap paper" stash pile. 
I didn't bother to take a picture of the "stickers and embellishments" rolling cart.  Suffice to say, it's full. 

The inchie and ATC stuff- or at least part of it.  This is the portion that I pulled out to start using on the doll house stuff.

This dresser is full of fabric.  There are four rubber maid totes that are also full.  Please note:  I have not actually used my sewing machine in 4 years. 

My bead stash: 
They are sorted by color, mostly.  I have a justification excuse for the beads:  I have chronic back pain, and when things get really bad, I focus on sorting. 

I didn't bother to take pictures of the books, magazines, "adhesives box" "cutting supplies" "paint supplies" or just random craft things that I have because of having kids. 

So, as you all can see, I need help desperately and not a single one of you has a thing to fear with regard to being on that television show "Hoarders".   Now that I've shown you, please don't report me.  I swear I am working on it.  Tongue

I am foaming at the mouth at the idea of fried oatmeal!  I must try that!

This is disgustingly awesome!  Smiley

It was running across this thread that prompted me to have a dream about a dollhouse- which prompted the purchase of 4. 

Two that are like the simple puzzle ones from the beginning of the post.  They are still available at Michael's for around $8 before coupons.  It's a different company, but the exact same puzzle.

The other two are "real" doll houses, and I am deathly afraid of them.  Tongue

One of my favorite (and easiest) recipes is Salsa Chicken.

2 (or 3, really up to you) frozen chicken breasts
1 jar salsa (or tomatoes, if you don't want a Mexican theme)
sour cream to taste

Put chicken breasts in crockpot and dump salsa on top.  Cook low 6-8 hours or high 4-6 hours.  Half an hour before serving, take chicken out and shred it with two forks.  Add it back to the salsa and add sour cream.  Stir and let cook for 30 minutes or so.

I have one that is even easier than that.  I use it for pretty much anything Tex-Mex. 
It is simply 4-6 frozen chicken breasts and a package of taco spice.  Put it in crock pot on low for about 4-5 hours, and then check it.  If it shreds with no trouble, it's done.  If not, up the temp to high for half an hour.
