Umph! 'Snot fair! In fact, I feel a bit like Mo's Two Jill at the moment:
As my birthday is not too far away, I've decided I should put together a wishlist so that my darling family and friends can see all the stuff I need (and it is need, not want, you understand) to make my crafting life a happy one. Problem is, at the moment the list is soooo long and I can't decide what should go at the top because, of course, the ones at the top are the ones that everyone will think are the most important and ..... see, it's sooo difficult, isn't it?
I know that I need (notice, need again) some Copics (ah! there's the top of my list!); a couple more Martha Stewart edge punches; some more papers (Cosmo, I love ya!); some embellishments (but I'd have to choose my own); some ribbon (ditto); a few more Nestabilities (well, Spellbinders in general); more paper (yes, I did mean to add it twice!); and ....
To be honest, when I'm not in Umph-mode, I know I can happily manage without anything more than I've already got, for at least another few months, anyway. It's just a moment, a fleeting instance of covetousness, and I shall go home tonight, pull out my stash and be perfectly happy again. Aaah, see, even my rant has helped me become umph-less.
Just FYI, the title of this post comes from a lovely moment we saw at Christmas, a couple of years ago. We were out shopping and seemed to be following a little boy and his mother around the shop. The little chap was wide-eyed at all the exciting things in the store but he was being so good and not pestering mum for anything. Then, all of a sudden, he stopped in front of a particular item (can't remember what it was but I don't think it was anything large or expensive) and looking at his mum with his little boy eyes, in his little boy voice (so cute), he exclaimed:
"Mum, I neeeeeeed one of these".
It still makes us giggle and it has become something of a catch phrase in our house, for those moments when the grown up in you knows that you want it but the child in you just neeeeeds it so much.
No card today, dear Bloglanders, as I've not had chance to photograph the latest ones this week.
I've got a couple ready to post from the past couple of weeks, but I'm a bit worried that the recipients might sneak a peak. Anyway, thanks for 'listening' - I shall get back to work and stop looking at my favourite blogs and my 'Umph' will go back in the cupboard until another day.
