CRAFTY DEMON - experimenting with old supplies

I'm involved with facing my demons, not buying any more supplies for a month and experimenting. 

Yes, there's Deb's Craft Demon, on the left page up there.  She thinks I can do 24/7 crafting and get everything done... today.  Probably because she has four hands!  She whispered to me, "go out and buy more paper for the new journal you want to make."  But I told her NO - I have loads of paper at home!

Where did she come from?  It all started with the "30 Day Craft Cleanse," brought to us by Moira on the Art Journaling Ning.  Moira asked us to face our Craft Demons.  What monsters we've seen!  Here's her blog, if you like to visit her and see what else she's up to.

At the beginning of the week, I started my inventory of materials - that's one of my Missions in the "30 Day Craft Cleanse."  Great idea!  I had purchased these glitter pens, thinking I would use them but just put them up.  Never touched them.  "Glitter is for little girls" my Demon said, "you need to buy some grown up pens."  So I did.  But this week I took them out and it changed my mind.  WOW, so bright and bold!  I've been getting into bright colors lately, not my usual "earth" tones.  With all the traveling I've done in the last month, I've seen a lot of bright colors on the walls of museums.  I guess it just made something click...

I think I know that nasty voice. It is speaking to me right now about my supplies!

I hear that nasty voice too but instead I opened up my bead boxes and saw an overwhelming about of beads so didn't listen!

4 hands! Brilliant idea! I'm wondering how to graft two more on...while I'm at it, I'm thinking it might be handy to have an extra set of legs, too! Cute post.
