I have to say that joining the apron swaps earlier this year has been a real game changer for me. I've told my husband before that I thought that sites like e-Harmony needed to have a sub-division for friends who connect on 29 levels of compatibility. I mean there could be someone who lives down the street that could be loads of fun to hang out with but in our fast paced lives, we never meet. The apron swaps have been like e-Harmony Friends for me! Meeting so many crafty ladies who share my passion for fabric and colored paper has been awesome! I know I've mentioned Regena and Amy who crack me up on a daily basis, but are also so thoughtful and caring. There is also Jill who is an amazing crafter that I am getting to know better as well. All these women are so talented (you should check out their blogs too!)
Regena posted a link back in the begining of December about a cool way to organize your fabric with comic book boards. I could hardly wait to give it a whirl, but with all I had going on, I had to wait until after Christmas. So I ordered the boards on Amazon and they arrived last week. Yesterday was the big day to put the plan into effect! I realized that some of my fabric has been in my possession for over 20 years and if I haven't used it yet, chances are good that I'm not going to use it in the next 20 years either. So I'm working out the plans for another sewing day the the church and I'm going to take all the fabric I longer want in my stash and offer it to anyone who might want to take it home. Whatever is left over, goes to Salvation Army. This way I can make room for some of the newer fabrics that I'm totally in love with and I don't have to feel guilty about buying it and bringing it home :) I plan to do the same "purging" with my scrapbook supplies. I'm only going to keep the things I totally love and rest I'll give away. It's a new year....and a new start. Out with the old........and definately in with the new!!!
