Okay, so I do have some regrets...those purchases that clearly were stupid and silly and filled me with buyer's remorse and self-loathing.
"Will I ever learn?!?!"
Probably not. But hey, I just, for the second time in my life, used up a whole tube of ChapStick without losing it first. I suppose that means there must be some hope for me.
Anyway, after deciding RESOLUTELY that I did not, under any circumstances, need even one more Kaleidacolor ink pad, I bought Vineyard. Because (and you know this, don't you?) it was so pretty!
I played around with the pad immediately after I bought it and thought, "Meh. Why'd I buy this?" And quietly banged my head on my desk in despair.
Today, however, I'm feeling no regrets. This card is why I bought Kaleidacolor Vineyard:
As soon as I finished it, I knew exactly who will receive it. Our niece announced last week that she and her boyfriend are getting married. Yay!!!! I'm going to send this to the happy couple. The color scheme isn't too girly, which feels appropriate for a couple, don't you think?
The close-up shows the fabulous olive fading into the grayish teal, then brownish purple, dark plum and finally lavender.
Happy sigh. I think my new motto for crafty purchases is "No Regrets." Eventually, you will make something work for you.
And if that's not a sure-fire plan for getting my own episode of Hoarders, I don't know what is.
