Well, now imagine what that's like when you multiply it by a hundred. That's what happens when you're in a middle of a crafting crisis, and find that your favorite craft store is having a massive sale.
Last week, I was heading to El Paso to renew my green card. Since we were going to be there for a couple days, and our hotel was conveniently located a few minutes away from a Joann's, I figured I'd go in and buy a pattern I was thinking of ordering, and maybe browse what they might already have out for Halloween.
My eye twitched a little as I tried to collect my body from lunging, but once that waft of fabric, and notions and crafty goodness all on sale hit these nostrils-- indeed, it felt as though I went bat shit crazy.

I even bought a reusable bag, because the images on it are worthy for consideration in my inevitable tattoo. Ok, so it's a little weird that when I look at this bag I don't just think "that's cute", I think "that would make a great themed sleeve"... but sew what!
|A little irony to back it up-- whomever gets this, gets my utter respect.|
