Collector vs Hoarder

What is the difference between a collector and a hoarder?  Perception!!!

One of the things I've come to enjoy since retiring (and there are many!!) is time!!!  Time to organize my craft closet, to ponder over things I've saved and find things I didn't know I had.   Time to play with my collection, and pull out some newly found items.

Michelle from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge has a great sketch this week.  

 It's right up my alley so I followed the sketch pretty close.

I love how this card turned out - perfect for my sewing mom!!!  We often joke about how much fabric she has in her sewing room compared to how much paper I have in my craft closet.  I think she wins by the way!!!!

Newly found items include stamp sets, Tailor-Made and Mother's Day Sillouettes, Stella paper, and wooden buttons from CTMH. (all retired)  I also found a stamp set of a sewing pattern that I used.  I embossed the scissors, thimble and thread spool and used foam tape to pop them off the card.  

I knew I was saving these pieces from my collection for something..... see I'm a collector.
