I'm pouty. I'm also funny because this is soooo not a bigger picture kind of thing.
Healthy tax returns are heading our way. In fact, State just dropped into our bank this morning. Both DH and I have been feeling spendy toward our hobbies; he's already invested in some really cool mixtures to make his own paint washes (he calls them "inks") and wants a new air compressor for his air-brushing tool.
That doesn't bother me, since he's so good at his painting that he's sold off many of his own creations. However, this means I get my fair chance to spend, too.....
And I can't decide which way to go!
Do I make myself focus on tools and materials I know I'll use often (inks, mists, paints, blank materials, etc)
Do I cave to collect a lot of pretty paper and embellishments which I might fall out of love with two weeks after I have them in my hands? -- and if so, do I go girly because it's soooooo pretty but otherwise not in line with my life OR do I focus on what I'd use to craft about my young son?
Retail therapy should not be this challenging? What would you do?
