2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Disorganized? Lazy? Childish? Irresponsible? Lonely? Which one? on: Today at 07:11:11 AM
I have two rooms for crafting...both of them have computers.  Yet, there are project bags and baskets everywhere there is a chair in my house...the dining room table is covered with fabric and glitter; the kitchen table is covered with canvases and floss...why?

I think it is because I  just like doing so many types of crafting that I don't limit where or what I want to do. It is just me and my hubby, who is also an artist and musician, and has his own spaces for drums, art, painting, whatever...we are both this way so it does not bother us at all...

I used to let other people who have different lifestyles "shame" me into thinking I was a total slob, messy housekeeper, bad wife, etc. No more...I am happier now than I ever have been by embracing all of the stuff I surround myself with...I am super organized, but still messy...creating daily is just like eating or brushing my teeth...it is part of me...

Out of respect for any company that comes to our house, I do clean up the mess before they come so that we can eat at the table....but after they are gone, I go back to my ways...

I think a lot of creative people are like this...I don't think you need to over analyze as to why...I doubt if knowing would change your behavior. Unless it is something you want to change because it is negatively impacting your life, spending time trying to rationalize or figuring out why seems a waste of valuable time.

I am alone a lot, and sometimes it feels lonely, even with a husband, but I think that is also a part of being creative and artistic.  I just know that I was not meant to be a social butterfly, though seeing friends and family are a big part of life, it is not something I do all the time.  I like being able to do what I do alone: read, craft, garden, craftster (not really a FB person), etc.

I love that bag.  Is it stenciled?

Also, the cowl is just gorgeous!  The stitches look like snowflakes!

Once again, we are having a craftalong for all to share whatever and how many projects you get done in 2015.  You can keep a list or not...you can post as you go...this is very flexible and meant for you to keep track and brag a bit about what you got done! Grin

You can even just keep track of your projects and totally ignore us out here, but I promise no one bites and we love to chat and give kudos, encouragement, ideas, etc.  It is quite addicting to come here and see all of the wonderful things!

There will be challenges and prizes as well....I am forgetful and busy, so some of you need to remind me when I forget to announce winners and give out prizes!!!  I will try to be better, but I say that each year with no success...

Talking about challenges...here is something to think about before 2015 hits us:

When did you first get into crafting?  Do you have a fond memory of one of the first things you ever made?  How did you feel about making something? Do you have any pictures of your project or of you at that time?

Post in January and you will get one bonus entry into the challenge for the month! Grin

I'll get the rest of this set up at the end of December!  See you guys in 2015
