Yeah, I said it. I'm a hoarder. It's clinical really. I'm done telling people I'm a saver. I'm through calling myself a collector. I've even called myself an environmentally conscientious person. But I know the truth and the truth is I've crossed the line over from innocent pack rat and I've officially taken up residence in Hoardersville.
On a brighter note all this hoarding is saving me money because I don't need to buy supplies as often. That's a good thing right? Right!? Well needless to say these days I'm tighter than a photo finish. I have some major expenses coming up. Major!
So back to the project. I folded strips of paper accordion style and glued the edges together. Tada- a pinwheel thingy. I did this four times, each time making the pinwheel smaller. I glued 8 center circles left over from another project onto the center front and back of the pinwheels to reinforce them. I glued ribbon along the backs of the pinwheels to hang them. Last but not least, I used some left over letters, yes I even kept that, I know I'm sick, spelling the word L-O-V-E.
Look, I know this project isn't perfect,neither am I. My mantra in life is this: If at first you don't succeed, redefine success. I win! Plus, remember, I obviously have mental health issues with all the crap I hoard. Example of things I still keep: Hair- belonging to me, and my children. Left over from first hair cuts and I kept a long braid from when I cut my hair short. Eww! Teeth- tons of baby teeth belonging to my children which served to horrify my best friend. Nasty! Bellybuttons- I saved my children's dried up bellybuttons. Don't judge! O.K. I'll stop because I'm starting to scare myself.
