Hi! I'm LisaDV. Thanks for stopping by. This is my life, crazy and chaotic most of the time, and I wouldn't change a thing.

Why Do I have so many scissors?

We know that as crafters, we have a tendency to collect supplies. We often talk of our supply of washi, flair, die cuts, etc.  Of course, when we talk of those supplies, I've never run across anyone who has 20 of the same kind of washi.  So last night while I was crafting, my little basket to the left of my table caught my attention.

There are 8 pairs of regular long scissors in here, no decorative. PLUS, my Cutterbee's (I have 2 pair), pinking shears, my red rubber stamp scissor, a small pair of embroidery thread scissors, and a rotary cutter!!!  I think it might be time to thin out and store some of the regular ones somewhere else.

Then I got to thinking, this doesn't even include my fabric scissors or rotary cutters or my kitchens scissors.  I think I might need a scissor intervention.

Do you have anything similar? Is it just me?


  1. I keep thinking I'm going to get rid of some of my fancy scissors, but I keep them for someday when I may use them again. I've only used one pair of them in the last year.

  2. I have a ton of decorative scissors (well I think I have a ton). I originally only bought a few and then received a few more from other people. I gave some away and still have a box full. I know as soon as I get rid of them, I will need them.

    1. Other than my pinking shears (which I do use on fabric) I only have 2 pair of decorative scissors which are in a box lost somewhere. But I totally get the "if I get rid of them, I will need them" feeling.
