Hoarding is definately crafty. I keep everything I can keep my hands on!
I don't throw out magazines until I get every little cool thing cut out of them, and save the little paper cutouts for another project. I keep every remnant of fabric I'm fond of, as well as pretty shirts that don't fit me anymore (that is, if I don't donate to local thrift stores.) Everything I find pretty from CD coasters to old folders and cool newspaper articles, I keep.
I'm very confident that one of these days I will use up these products and I shall have to collect more stuff. Collect what you're positive you can use somehow, as long as that creation won't just be hidden away or thrown later.
Christina, we should go to the craft fair at Alerus. It could be interesting and we could possibly learn a bit. Sound cool? Still need to give you back your Van Gogh print fleece. I can clean in if it smells funny, too.
