      @Kleb Have you ever looked at the Marketplace feature on FaceBook? For sewing machines? I like to look at it, easier to see pictures of items there than on Kijiji. It's also good for a joke sometimes, the absolute garbage some people think is worth a LOT of money. And sad too, it must be a deceased relatives solid wood dining room set offered for practically nothing.
      No. I bought the machine but then the store I was going to take classes from closed. Then I was going to take a weaving course but I bought it with a Groupon and got a link to schedule the class but the link led me to something that said I could only get the Wednesday 10 am class instead of the regular class list. Couldn't do that so I returned it. So that was the extent of my efforts to take creative classes to date.

      However, now I have a course on DVD that's actually very good or the first lesson was anyway and something my husband wanted as well (his mother taught him basic sewing) and the machine is out of the attic and out of the box and in the living room so it's looking like a go.

      Now, if they just have that masonry class at the local vocational high school again this summer, I'll be a happy camper.

      My husband buys light bulbs. He has a thing about the quality of light and different types of light. We have a billion light bulbs.

      I don't think I have an issue with anything, ahem, but someone coming into my house and checking around might say, dog toys and yarn.

      Someone coming into the house might say my husband has a thing for cables for electronic devices- new cables for new devices, extras to go into the bag he carries to work everyday, a 3rd to have when he travels, one foot, 3 foot, 6 foot, longer. Cables to hook one device to another device, charging cables, cables, cables, cables. And since they never seem to get discarded when a new device comes along, if they were connected end to end, and of course they cannot because USB, micro USB, lightning, HDMI, cable, ethernet, AC, other names I never knew to begin with, we'd have a few miles of wire.

      Sheet Music.

      Yeah, odd one I know. I have more sheet music than I know what to do with, just bought some more this weekend. I think everyone knows I play both piano and guitar. I know a lot of musicians learn music by ear. It's not that I can't. I often figure out just little patterns here and there but I never sit down and figure a whole song out by ear. If it might be a song I want to learn. I first look and see if I can find it in a book that has other songs I want to learn in it. If not then I buy one offs online. The books I have of sheet music fit in 6 milk crates. This doesn't include music magazine such as piano and guitar magazines which always include music as well.

      Musicnotes.com is a great site for buying just single songs. I have over 300 songs in my library and 600 in my wishlist. It is one of the few places where I look for sales. Then buy a bunch from my wishlist. Especially when they have 2 for one.

      I have found that many LEDs are the wrong K (too blue or white) to physiologically end the day well. We have a warm LED bulb in the lamp next to the couch. And I wrapped a bandana around my bedside lamp to reduce the light level and make it less white.

      I used to be a cookbook collector but have been slowly weaning them out. In the spring I can't stop myself from looking and craving a puppy. Its really hard. Thank goodness I get to work with them weekly.
