As many of you know I’ve been collection orchid species for the last 10 years. I made a few orders over the year and that was it. The problem started last year when I started crafting. There are about 20 000+ orchid species in the world and that’s it!!! You can’t grow them all, because you don’t have the right conditions or enough money, but you can get divisions or keikis (small baby orchids) from your friends and your collection expands with no additional charges. When it comes to crafting there’s a whole different world. The friendly people at Magnolia keep sending out these gorgeous stamps, which are way too expensive, and then there are papers (you can only use them once) and dies and flowers and ribbons and lace and and and and and …….. you see my point?
I just got two new stamps from the new London collection and all I’m seeing are the new stamps from the upcoming Winter wonderland collection all over the blogland. I just hope the pretty ones will be in the stamp club.
………………… there is one good thing when I compare the two addictions I have – I don’t have to water my stamps and they don’t get mealy bugs. lol
