Hoarders here I come

As you know, I'm diving head first into the world of paper crafting.  Therefore, I needed to gather the necessary (and some unnecessary) supplies. Here is a picture of some of my haul.

I've been buying things piece meal over the span of about a month. Some in stores (woot woot 50% off coupons) and some online (yeah free shipping). Some stuff I already had from when I did a little bit of stamping and scrapbooking before G was born. For any of you out there that aren't familiar this stuff, here is a list of what I felt were essential:

1. Ranger Craft Mat (I got mine on sale, otherwise I probably would have got a kitchen mat for cheap)
2. Adhesive (I have From This to That)
3. Distress Inks (I got the set of all new colors for a great price at Scrapbook.com)
4. Cardstock (Bazzill and PTI)
5. Patterned Paper (I have some from BasicGrey, Fancy Pants, DCWV, Echo Park, PTI)
6. A handful of Copic Markers (totally unnecessary)
7. Ink Blending tool (Mine is Inkssentials)
8. Black and White enamel accents (by Inkssentials)
9. Memento Tuxedo Black ink (had)
10. Versamark (had)
11. Some embossing powders (had)
12. Heat gun (mine is Stampin' Up, I had it from years ago)
13. Self Healing mat (mine is Making Memories)
14. Buttons
15. Ribbon
16. Sparkly things (rhinestone like, Stickles, glitter)
17. Sizzix Big Shot (probably unnecessary but I had been eyeing it up for months anyway)
18. Dies and embossing folders for Sizzix
19. Glossy Accents
20. Stamps (PTI, Lawn Fawn, Unity, SU)

It did cost me a pretty penny to get all the things I wanted needed. But I had a bit saved up from my job (I do home jewelry parties, yes, direct sales. Please don't hate me), and I pawned some things on Craigslist that had been sitting around.

Once I took everything out of the package and organized it, it was a considerably smaller mass of things.  Tomorrow is my official start date, I will have my first item created and posted by Sunday.  I figured going Sunday to Sunday as a week is the easiest for me to remember.

Well, I'm off to run some errands on this gorgeous day (really it's cold and rainy).
