I was surprised he even told me it was on. And he must watch it since he knew parts of tonight's episodes had been played previously. And if he sees something that he knows I've used in my scrapping he points it out that he remembers I've used it - which is really sweet.

@Bookstorebabe
The more I read posts from you (where ever I run into them on craftster), the more you become my hero!
Your last post on this thread was perfect for me to read after the day I've had.
Thank you!

Or it could be there's just stereotypical males Tongue Makes me feel like I'm going mad sometimes, I have a terrible memory but he makes me lose confidence in it because he swears I didn't tell him something when I'm positive I did.

He does whinge, but then he'll suggest I get more stash, new tools, or try a new technique. He'll teach me what he knows, come up with some brilliant ideas and take the stress off when a difficult deadline looms. Last week, he suggested we get a storage wall to let me keep my stash better in the new house.

You know, I don't believe him when he whinges: it's just words. Wink

LOL - unluckily for my DH, my memory is pretty good and I can go into great detail about how, when, where, etc I told him, so he stopped arguing because I love a good argument too Cheesy

Antidigger - I think for some mates, they just learned that enabling helps them in the long run.  It keeps us happy, and probably relatively quiet so they can do whatever they want at the very least.  At best, they get cool stuff too Cheesy

I can't stop swapping! I think I have a problem.

Well, I have to admit DH is pretty supportive.  He lets me use his tools, and his stains and varnishes, and will cut things for me.  He caved and gave me the spare room to be remodeled as a craft room.  Though i think that is more so he can have a place to throw my stuff when my crafting stuff starts to take over the rest of the house again Cheesy

I wish he would point out crafting shows to me - he hates it when I watch DIY shows - he says I get "ideas" then, and that usually means more work for him Cheesy

Mine's the same way.  I got home from work one day and he had rearranged the extra space in the dining room so I had more crafting space.  I think that was mostly so that I would stop making a huge mess in the living room.

I'm pretty lucky.  I don't think the bf really likes how much time I spend crafting, but he's supportive.  He is actually in his first swap on here now, which is awesome.

That is awesome - what swap is he doing?

If anything, I think DH is more put off by the amount of time on-line I spend than my crafting time Cheesy
