I can't seem to hit the 'buy now' on all the lovely cha releases...I like several if them...there only one line that makes me nervous because I want every bit of it...but even then? I can't seem to make the purchase...

I think it's part having a great stash that I can't seem to put s dent on...part guilt because I can't carve out the time to craft because of work n school...

I feel like I'm on craft overload despite not having purchased a darn thing...anyone else feel that way?

n goodness sake let this spell be short lived!!!

I feel the same way. I have so much paper that its hard to justify getting more. I am trying to get a bucket of my favorite things together and then just limit myself to one purchase until next Cha comes around.

Be thankful for being in this "blessed state". lol! And count your money on the savings account instead.

I must admit that I have the opposite problem. Why do I KEEP hitting 'buy' when I already have more than enough supplies in my stash?

I had firmly decided to only get a few select things from CHA this time, and NOT add to my stash anymore, but here I am, shopping like there's no tomorrow (or at least like there's no CHA Summer - lol!). There's Glitz , Amy T, Dear Lizzy, Jenni Bowlin, Maggie H, and not to mention the huge box now on its way to me from Studio Calico!

Ugh. I DO NOT NEED MORE PRODUCT But it is soooo pretty. My preciouses... *stroking the papers*

It's time to put an end to this madness, so I'd better go and get some scrapping done, and stop hanging out at the online shops.

I had a huge list of things I wanted from this CHA release. HUGE. I haven't really loved a new release in forever, until last month. My solution was to sign up for 6 months of Cocoa Daisy. That way I will get SOME new product but not so much that I am overwhelmed.

I always have problems hitting "buy" when I think about my stash.

Happiness looks good on everyone!

It's probably because you do have a nice stash built up. Same for me. I am just a bit more selective when it comes to buying scrappy supplies.
