YKYACW you're more likely to ask someone "did you make that" than "where did you get that" when they have something awesome.

I do that all the time!  Most common response is an "Are you kidding me?" look.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Yeah, or the look of shame, "no, I bought it."

somewhat of a reverse...you know you're a craftster when your friends stop asking you "where did you get that?" and instead ask, "did you make that?"

That's what I always get now "Oh I love your scarf/hat/purse/whatever did you make it?" when I say yes the response is "You're so crafty" and they admire it. Now if I tell them no I bought it they have a momentary look of shock and then suddenly lose interest  Roll Eyes

it's more like "Oh when did you make that?"
      Has anyone gotten to the point that people get more excited when you do buy something?

YKYACW you're boyfriend calls you several times during the day on his work breaks and every single time you're either painting or waiting for paint to dry.  For three days in a row.

AND the boyfriend is getting frustrated that I'll never tell him what I'm painting since it's his Christmas present.

To any recent swap partners: I apologize immensely for slacking. I got completely bogged down in a lot of different things and decided to just flake out on my Craftster responsibilities instead of fixing my mistakes. I'm so sorry.

You're super psyched when you get a 50% off coupon to Michaels and can finally justify buying that $20 pair of round-nose pliers (they're really nice pliers!!). Of course, no one else you try to talk to understands the awesomeness of the pliers...

When on a trip to the glass museum in Corning, NY (!!), you're eyeing jewelry in the gift shop when your boyfriend says "but why don't you just make it?" So you look closer and realize that you could make it! If only you knew how to crochet...then decide you must learn how to crochet over break.

You make a cool pendant, and know it's just calling to be put on a necklace, but can't figure out how to complete it. Later, in the middle of dinner, it suddenly comes to you and you exclaim "seed beads!", causing your family to give you that look...you know the one. ;P

YKYACW you get birthday money and get excited because now you can justify getting the knitting needles from knitpicks you've been drooling over for weeks. 

YKYACW your husband gives you a sock knitting book you've had your eye on for your birthday.

YKYACW - you leave your crochet hook roll at the office the day before a holiday weekend and are pissed at your husband because he doesn't think you should bother to go get them. "can't you just wait until Friday or just get them on Monday?" ARRRGGHHHHH NO!
