1. Organizer
2. Creator
3. Shopper
4. Purger

I try to curtail #3 so I don't have to do a lot of #4; but since I recently did a revamp of #1 I had a lot to #4 so I took it all to a crop and got rid of it! Oh, and I did some #3 and a bit of #2 at the crop as well.

Honestly? I go through stages with almost all of them, with the exception of maybe purging. I don't purge on a regular basis because I try to only buy what I really love, and I don't mind having old product because I tend to use it just as much as the new. Every once in a while I'll come across something that I don't like because I bought it just because it was on sale or before I figured out what kinds of items I really love and those things go, but I don't go through everything on a regular basis just for the sake of getting rid of some of it.

Some days I feel like organizing, some days I feel like creating, and sometimes I want some fresh stuff to work with, so I shop a little. It just depends on my mood and how I'm feeling at that time!

I'd be more of a shopper if funds were limitless.

I organize occasionally. And i don't have enough to purge.

4. Purger (only because I have a small-ish stash and I don't buy a ton. Otherwise, I'd purge away!)

I make something, sometimes several somethings, every day. The supplies I use to do that are organized within an inch of their lives. I enjoy shopping and have no impulse control for things I know I want, but I also know exactly what I want and what I'll use. That being said, things that have clung on from *before* I knew what I wanted and would use I have no problem passing on to others. I'm a minimalist so I don't want things that aren't serving a purpose.

I hardly ever purge anything. And I've been trying to do very little shopping the last two years. I've been scrapping for 14 years so I've accumulated a lot of stuff. Lately, I've been digging into my stash and making layouts with old Basic Grey papers such as Infuse and Blush. I've been happy with the way they have turned out.

I hate shopping. I usually only go shopping when I need something. I try to not go just because. like yesterday i needed a piece of vellum so I stopped at michaels and I ended up buying 4 pieces of vellum, 2 12x12 papers, ribbon and a few other things. there goes There ya go... I shopped and bought more then I needed...

I Think I am a creator first because I love to make things. I wouldn't have all these supplies if I didn't like creating.

I have to be organized. It drives me nuts to not be organized. I want everything in its place. even when I am working on a project I have to have my stuff in its place. when my desk is a mess I can not function. Like right now it is a mess... I need to get off here and clean it soon. because as I sit here it is calling my name to be cleaned.

Purger. I purger every so often. I inherited all my moms craft stuff when she passed away and I had mixed it in with mine. I have purged 5 times in the past 4 years and I still have way too much stuff. Time to purge again. I want to get down to just having what I want to use and nothing more.... I live in a very small place and I have way too much piled up...

I can't rank them, because I do them all equally. I create...then shop....then organize...then purge. I might create more than the other three, but they are all an important process in my crafty area!

I don't shop very often, and I tend to use up every last scrap of anything I buy, though I will purge when it is necessary (usually into my daughter's craft basket). I do, however, make lots of layout.

1. Create
2. Shop
3. Organize
4. Purge


Although organize SHOULD be #1 and Shop SHOULD be #4 right now. I am in a funk, so really none of those things are happening. But if I organized, I could create with what I had, and I have friends who would benefit from what I don't think I will use. My financial situation, which makes shopping really difficult, really shouldn't be a factor in my ability to do the other three things.

Although I am working to change it, here is my order:

1. shopper
2. organizer
3. purger
4. creator

#2 & #3 actually go hand-in-hand for me. My order is truly dictated by the time/difficulty of each task. Shopping is the easiest...and creating takes the longest. I wish it were reversed!

Most recently I'd have to rank them:

Shopper
Organizer
Creator
Purger (this one may as well not even be on the list, I do it so rarely!)

I wish creator was #1 because that's supposed to be the focus but I've been on a shopping streak and my craft room's a disaster, which moved organizer up to #2. Need to reshift my focus and get more actual crafting done!
