,Hello. My name is Stephanie and I'm a mess. Even when I clean out drawers or closets. Even when I purge and purge and purge. I am and shall always be a mess.
My craft area will never resemble this neat rolling caddy. Paper stacks will continue to topple over no matter how many times I carefully rearrange the items.
The floor will be littered with reams of cut up magazines pages. My trash can over-floweth yet, everywhere I look there are excesses of bits and pieces.
I could vow to stop saving torn out magazine pages, snippets of pretty paper, canceled postage stamps or pretty advertising, but it is a vow I cannot keep. I'm helpless in the sight of PAPER!
Buttons would jump over the edge of the bowl in wild abandon just as soon as I closed the drawer.
Once I piled the half dozen pairs of scissors I own in the drawer, the pretty emptiness of the space would be forever ruined.
Why you ask do I own a half dozen pairs of scissors? (it's really more than that)
Because I hate not being able to find a pair when I need them. Besides, I keep using the cloth scissors on paper and ruining them. Then I HAVE to buy a new pair.
Maybe you, but surely not me!
