I know I have a problem. And it is not a problem of the insect variety. It is a crafting problem. You see I bought a Cricut Expression awhile back and it has taken over my life. Any of you crafters out there can understand how that happens. It starts with the need to make just one special card for an event and then it kind of snowballs. By the time I am done I have every single piece of crafting accessory out in my “office”. I have the trash can for the scraps that happen to make it into the basket. I have the Cricut, of course. I have the piles of scrapping paper and cardstock. I have the cards. I have the 12 pairs of different edged scissors. I have the markers. I have the adhesives–glue runners, glue sticks, tape, etc. The list goes on and on.
And I have 2 cats. Who HAVE to be in the middle of things. Sometimes I just have to close the door. Cats + Crafts = Huge Frustration
What I have found is that this little hobby of mine gives me a lot of satisfaction and somehow fulfills a deep need in my life. I need to create or something. I am done creating children (mine are 22 and 25 and don’t need their mom in quite the same way anymore) . I am not currently a part of the paid work force so I don’t have that outlet. I volunteer but that is not where I can be creative. So I make cards. And send cards. And have fun with it.
Can any of the rest of you identify with my crafting addiction? Is there a self help group out there? There are days when I think I have gone overboard. I may have a problem… Would love to hear what YOUR craft addiction is and see pictures!!! Stop on by and share!
