I know I said I wasn't going to do any more new Halloween items but someone asked for an owl for Halloween so..............
Who am I resist such a thing? I am weak in the face of Halloween requests. :)
(A few other, non-Halloween things, have also been posted, btw.)
Well...................we made an attempt to go through my poor stash stuff this weekend and here is what I was able to save:
Yep. One lonely little bag of snowflake buttons. *sigh*
Everything else was tossed. All of my Crescent Color threads, the silks/Watercolors/Waterlillies/etc, metallics, floss bags, extra DMC I had in a bag, a box of new DMC colors that I had never gotten around to wrapping on cards, a box of the DMC linen collection..........*sad*
Could have been worse, I guess. At least my DMC was in separate boxes so that was safe. I don't even want to think about having to replace an entire collection of DMC. (Heeeeee heeeeeeee hooooooo! Oh god no.)
And if this had happened this time last year all of my WDW and GAST threads would have been in there too. (Those collections have gotten large enough that they had to be moved to their own storage box.)
I wasn't even able to save the plastic container everything was originally in.
Now this I really don't understand. You think some harsh detergent/Nature's Miracle/Simple Green combo would be enough to clean hard plastic............and you would be wrong. lol All of the stuff I lost was in floss bags which were closed, didn't even get wet, and they were still disgusting. WTF?
Oh well. I reordered the Crescent Colors and a couple other things that I use all the time (don't ask me how much that cost) as a super-early birthday/Xmas present to myself and the rest I will just reorder if/when I ever get to the project that I originally bought them for. On the bright side, it will fun going through a whole ton of new threads once that order comes in. :|
I have plenty of cats left to get all up in my business but, thankfully, I've never had any problems with my Himmies. *crosses fingers*
Though they *do* like to help you do pretty much everything you want to do without them around.
Seriously guys? It's a bag of buttons. And a camera. So not that interesting! lol
He might actually be sitting on the buttons at this point. But I let him because he was sitting pretty for a quick photo. :)
