5. I often get comments for relatives because I have this plastic box of candles setting in my room.

What do you want with them? Well I like to go to rummage sales and I don't always have a lot of money to spend so I started buying candles - some new orthers used. They often cost ten cents each and who knows when you might need a candle.

What helps with my collecting is that I have a good size family and the kids have gotten used to asking great grandma if she has something they need before they go to buy it.

I never buy craft thing because I never get the things done. I am working on 5 quilts for the babies but am kicking myself because I forgot this little fact. In fact I am using DU as an excuse to stay away from them right now.
