the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming.  

I am posting today with a plea for help.  I do not know where to start, except to say:  "Hello, my name is Stephanie, and I'm addicted."  Maybe someone can knock some sense into me before I'm too far gone.  lol 

Addicted to what, you ask?  Well, I'm totally addicted to these babies!

*sigh*  Yes, I have a bad addiction to Nestabilities.  I got an amazing Christmas bonus at work this year and guess what I bought?  40 (yes, i said 40) new sets of Nestabilities.  The ones in the photo above aren't hung on my rail on the wall yet because I'm not sure how to hang all of them, but the rest have all been put away nicely.  Here is what they look like, all together.

You might be asking why I think I'm addicted.  And although the photos don't really do them justice, I counted them all, and I own 94 sets of Nestabilities.  If you do the math, well...let's just say I could have put a down payment on a new car, or even bought a cheap cash car with the amount I've spent. lol  I'm feeling rather ashamed at the massive amount of these dies I have purchased, but I can't seem to stop buying them.  I almost feel as if I need to hide in the closet with my laptop every payday, so no one will catch me buying any more.  hahaha!

Anyway, it's a good thing I will be busy starting in January, as I must start using all of these pretties so I don't feel like I've wasted all that money.  Anyone else have an addiction to something like this?  Anyone ever have a crafty intervention to your addiction and live? lol

Steph! That collection of Nestabilities is awesome! I can't wait to see your projects using those 40 new ones. :-)

I could be addicted to everything related to stamping. I love it all. My growing space in the corner of the dining room is testament to this (I'm being given not-so-subtle hints to move to another room...he he).

Oh Steph am so glad I found your blog now I don't feel so alone in my addiction . I have multi addictions and have started smuggling stash into the house when no one is home. Of course they all know what I'm up to but are turning a blind eye for the moment. I am actually lucky in the fact that my husbands hobby is much more expensive to upkeep,
but the way we are both going it wont be long before we have to sell our children !
