The Eye is Never Satisfied

I recently wrote an article about some things to think about if you’re considering joining a designer’s creative team.  I just saw a link to that article on Facebook.  If you haven’t read it you can find it here.  The first sentence says, “When I first started digi-scrapping I couldn’t get enough kits to satisfy my desires.”, but that’s not entirely true.  I’ve been digi-scrapping for almost two years now and I’m still not satisfied!  Sad but true.  I’ve got umpteen gorgeous, gorgeous kits. When I browse through them I realize there are a lot that I haven’t even used yet and I obviously have no need to buy more for quite some time, if ever!  Then I get a newsletter with the new releases and I see a kit I want and the saga continues.  I also have a list on Facebook so I won’t miss any of my favorite designer’s realeases and freebies.  Ahhh, there in lies the problem.

When I commented about this to a friend she said, repeat after me, my name is Yobeth and I’m a scrap-aholic!  Yes, I’m like a junkie with all the best heroin lined up before me and I’m trying to resist the temptation!  Well you can imagine… It is not pretty.

I have had my eye on something I’d like to purchase.  Well, okay, yes, it’s another scrap booking program.  I’ve been putting it off.  First and foremost because I don’t need it.  BUT it does some neat stuff, so I want it.  Second because funds are a little tight right now.  Then it occurred to me I could afford to get the program if I quit buying kits for a month or two.  The kit I looked at today, that I really, really want, costs $19.52 on sale.  So if I resist two such kits, viola, I can get the program 🙂

Yes, I realize, this is scrap-aholic math, a phenomenon in which my husband thinks I’m particularly gifted.  On the other hand, I could unsubscribe to all designer newsletters and unlike their Facebook pages and probably save a lot of grief and money.  Hmmm, I think I’d need a 12 step program for that!
