I realized that part of being frugal was simplifying my life!  I just got tired of taking care of "things"...when you have too much crap laying around, it is exhausting and costly to take care of it...I also keep thinking that I never want to be in a situtation that if one of us lost our jobs, that we would be devestated by it...I could live happily ever after as long as I had books, a garden, and my sewing machine!  Hubby would be happy with this paints and his drums (and his cats!)...

The varnish I applied to my little birdhouse for the garden is almost dry (darn humid, raining weather!)....so I have completed my April craft for this thread! YAY!

What's up for May, I wonder? Cheesy

I am very excited to be spring cleaning and going through all of my stuff to make up my swap package!  I hope to mail out this week so I can make room for...(not getting more stuff!)....to craft comfortably in my room!  It is very distracting to sew with piles laying all around! UGH!

Jaders--I hope my excess brings you many hours of crafting!!!

I love the butterflies that I have seen!  So cute, especially with the beaded little legs and the smiling face!

I also think the rainbow dotee is clever!  Love the little cloud tail!

reminder:  if anyone is interested, please use PM to arrange a personal swap!

I remove the underwire on many of my bras because they seem to poke me once they get broken in!  There is nothing worse than an uncomfortable bra!

I am almost ready to post my clean and organized craft room...I was going to repaint it, but with paint being $25 or more a gallon, I figured I could live with the paint and just brighten things up by painting the dark shelves and all the trim white.  I had a bunch of white paint left over from redoing my closet this winter!

I found lots of supplies I forgot I had, and lots of fabric that I brought back from helping my friend clean out her mother's house...so, I am stocked on supplies for quite a while...my garden is my priority now...it will be the biggest frugal payoff in the fall!

I always like to try new things and then I realize that I really don't have a passion for it nor the talent sometimes!  I also like bargains and I tend to stock up and then forget what I originally bought the dang stuff for!

I understand that people are just starting out or life has just thrown a lot of people a curve ball...I was helped out quite a bit when I was learning to sew and people were very generous with their skills, supplies, etc. I think it is meant to be passed on to another group!!  I feel like theapphiremoon does...instead of taking it to the charity shops and hoping the stuff will be used, I would prefer that someone here can at least use some and maybe pass it on as well!!

I know a lot of people have told me that they would love to swap and make new friends by swapping, but they don't have the sources or means to get supplies!  That is just not right!  So, I agree, this swap is HELPING me, as well, and a quarterly would be awesome to keep my house from being on Hoarders!!! Cheesy
