After being stuck in the house for the last few months, with only an occasional warm day to venture outside, cabin fever is at an all-time high at our house. To keep myself from climbing the walls and driving my husband crazy, I have become an obsessed crafter. I have just added two new items to my list, which for about the last year making cupcakes has been the main focus of my attention. Now I have added ribbon sculpture and decorated cookies to my list.
I guess my husband knew I had sort-of gone over the edge when I was on the hunt for new cookie cutters the whole weekend we spent in Gatlinburg. Bless his heart! So between cookie cutters, ribbon and cupcake wrappers I am sure Hobby Lobby’s stock has had a major spike. (Might be a good time to invest in their stock!) Of course, I always use a coupon on anything that’s not on sale and if it’s 30 percent off, they will change it to 40 percent off if I have a coupon. I think knowing I get it on sale is the one thing that helps my husband deal with my newest addictions! I don’t think there are recovery groups for crafters — which really is too bad because I could bring some really yummy and cute cupcakes and cookies.
