Guess Who's A Greedy Guts!

Ok. I'm just gonna put this out there. I have SO much in my life. SO much I am thankful for. I have so much stuff that I have run out of storage space. My craft cupboard is overflowing. Am I content....sometimes - YES! But my greed knows no end!
Ever since I saw that one can use a Sizzix machine to cut out fabric shapes on LollyChops {she is sooo awesome!}....guess what...I've NEEDED one!!!! And now they have a Hello Kitty one!

That's right. My life is incomplete without one. Keep in mind that I've never used one, that I can't afford to buy all of the dies one needs to use the machine, I actually want to get to a point where I'm doing everything by hand - I want to be a very creative and green crafter, close the loop? right? BUT THAT STUPID GREEDY GUTS in my head screams at me! "Stop at nothing til you have it!" Who knows what I'd do with it once I had it. I would probably copy LollyChop's project and then who knows. 

I've trolled the internet looking for the lowest price. I was holding out hope thinking that there might have been a Big Shot shaped box under the Christmas tree. I've even bid on a few machines when I had a paypal balance.
Why in the heck must I do this to my greedy self?

I don't "do" New Year's resolutions. But I am really struggling with being motivated to not just stay in bed all day or laying on the floor watching Midsomer Murders or the food channel until I need to do a wee or put some food in my gob. So I've moved the computer out of my lady cave craft haven. I replaced it with my trusty sewing machine that had been misplaced by said computer.
I used to be an avid journler and letter writer. I do neither anymore. It's rubbish. I used to take pictures all of the time. Where has that desire gone? I'm not saying this well {partly because I'm worried about that pot of rice on the stove!}...
I want to want less and to do & be more. To be more creative and resourceful and motivated! I used to have so much more drive and energy. Is this just because I'm not in my 20s anymore? Perhaps or I've become complacent in my life and that is totally acceptable to me. What happened to my love affair with revolution and desire to be a revolutionary...hmm.....

I need to think about this.
