Truly I am not! I know a lot of people think due to my constant organization in my craft room that I am OCD. Believe me I would know if I was OCD, after all the great state of Oklahoma has deemed me qualified to give out such a diagnosis, and I am not clinically OCD. If you could see the rest of my house you would completely agree with the fact that there is no basis for me being deemed OCD.
Just this week my sweet friend Enfys, most of you guys are probably familiar with her from Going Buggy, informed me in one of her emails that she is concerned about me. Well here is part of her message, and I quote "this obsession of yours for organisation is worrying, have you thought about a 12 step programme?" *okie still gets tickled at how her Britty and Aussie friends spell words a little differently*. Now this might not be too concerning that a friend would express worry but considering that Enfys is in the UK, it does make me a little apprehensive that my obsession of crafty organization is now worrying people globally and does have me pondering if there is something wrong with me!
*okie sighs deeply* But as you can see by the picture the hard work as paid off. I now have ALL of my stamps organized. This includes my Stampin Up, Close To My Heart, and various other brands of stamps. The only ones I don't have in stamp cases are my background stamps, although I have given a little thought of unmounting them but can't decide at this time if I want to do so *okie resists the urge to go over there right now and rip the stamps off the blocks and put them on cling foam and slap them in the 3 empty cases she has left*.
Linda *okie wonders if she ever even needs to explain who Linda is anymore since she is mentioned in posts so frequently* has just about convinced me to catalog my stamps as she has done so I can find my stamps much easier. She did hers last week and she said she loves it. If you would like to see Linda's stamp organization click --> HERE <--. And while Enfys did voice concern for my "obsession" as she so put it, she also has a method for organizaing her stamps. If you would like to see how Enfys organizes her stamps then please click --> HERE <--. Oh and just so you don't have to spend time counting there are a total of 66 labeled stamp cases. Please don't ask how many stamps I have because I am not so obsessed as to count *okie thinks it will be easier to count once she does the cataloging and can write down the number on each sheet in the bottom right hand corner so they can be easily tallied*.
Since I am not OCD but yet there does seem to be some issue that I suffer ailments from I will at this point in my life admit to suffering COA....otherwise,
and here forth know as Craftroom Organization Addiction.
*okie stands behind a podium, clears her throat and starts to speak to the crowd*
Hi, my name is Okie. I am powerless over the need of organization in my craft room.
I admit that I cannot control my behaviors, desires, and thoughts of organization as it relates to my craftroom.
I admit I can not overcome this problem on my own
*okie stops for a minute, eyebrows knitting together as she goes into deep thought in how to finish this declaration*
Um...I am sorry folks I think I need to be more honest.
*okie smiles broadly and finishes her little speech on the podium*
Who the hell am I kiddin folks? I absolutely know what I am doing with all this organization crap. I understand I love to organize. I love being able to go to any section of my craftroom and get what I need. If I suffer from some sort of affliction then I choice to live in denial!! *okie runs from the podium gleefully laughing heading off to color code and label something*
