How long could you go without buying new supplies and still get your projects done? (This does not include adhesive and page protectors). I could probably go 3 months.

I refuse to answer this on the grounds that if I did, the people who film "Hoarders" might show up on my doorstep! LOL!

I have no doubt that they would show up at my house. I honestly have more supplies then some scrap stores display. Now if you included what the stores have in their storage rooms they may have more then me but that is purely speculation on my part.

A long time, but I wouldn't like my supply choices by the time I got the end of my supplies...unless I had another little boy along the way and my two boys stopped playing sports...

Years. First problem would probably be that my pens dried up!

I could go years, and I wouldn't consider myself a hoarder at all - I think I've got less than two linear feet of paper (including cardstock).

I could probably go years but I would not want to. I love shopping for new supplies, trying new things and being inspired from the new stuff. To me it is part of the fun of this hobby.

Looking at supplies alone I could go a while but, when I do a layout I always seem to not have the right shade of card stock or an embellishment I need, so in that respect I am not sure I can go that long.

On sanity level, not even a week! My LSS is my escape,therapy and spa from a household of boys who range in age from teething baby to pre-teen.

Pfft! You're a lightweight! The only reason I've only got 248 items in my wish list is because deleted some discontinued items the other day.

Re the items in your wishlist~do move the Autumn Song papers over into your cart~I've got those and they are the most gorgeous papers ever. EVER!!! They've got that faded look while at the same time they're very rich and the colors are truly wonderful. I'm going to my stash right now so I can take mine out and pet them.

I could probably go years but it really depends on how many pages/year I would finish. Some of my past 10 years were very productive with 40-80 pages completed and some years I only finished 10 pages. Actually, (as i think about it), I could probably finish All my pages for 10 years and never buy paper! I have have plenty ribbon, stamps, a cricut and lots of punches to use if I were to run out of stickers! I need a "to buy only" diet of adhesive, ink pads and pens ONLY!

I never thought of it this way!
So, actually, my hobby isn't paper crafting-- it's shopping for paper crafting.
I thought I wasn't getting anything done. Now I see that I was "doing" my hobby all along. Every time I went to Micheal's, JoAnn's, AC, shopped on line...
I just wasn't seeing the bigger picture.
I've been accomplishing much more than I thought!

Definitely a year, and that is including adhesive. I wonder if we should do a challenge - I once did 18 months without buying any paper!

Hee hee. I like to smell my paper. I know it sounds weird.
