When someone asks you if you made your bag, shirt, cuff etc and you have to explain that you did not, but you potentially could have, and that someone somewhere else is walking around wearing something that you actually  made.

LOL, exactly.... when, if you go out in not a particularly crafty outfit and end up in a craft/fabric store, you feel bitterly ashamed you're not head-to-toe in craftiness,. I sometimes end up not buying stuff for no other reason thann procrastinating to do it myself. Then never doing it.

-- when you mke your sisters go through their closets and give you things they dont wear anymore

--when you take things out of bags marked for the thrift store because the fabric would be perfect for a shirt recon

--when all you talk to your boyfriend about is what your new craft or project will be and how you are going to execute that project

--when you log onto craftster when you are supposed to be writing a vital paper in your English class that has been assigned for over a week, which is due in apporximately, 30 minutes


--when your mom comes in asking you what you are doing and looks at the computer and says "oh. nvm' and leaves the room

HAH! This is sooo me! Especially the english paper part..  Grin

-When you're no longer phased by poking your fingertips with pins when you sew because you've developed pin callouses.

-When your family makes you hem their pants and take in their skirts and shirts instead of going to a tailor

-... then refering to YOU as the tailor.

-When you're the only one who gets away with crocheting in class because everyone knows you're the "crafty one"

-When you read this thread and nod and laugh everytime you read a post because it pertains EXACTLY to you!

When you realise those mysterious callouses on your right hand are exactly where the yarn goes when you knit...

Smiley I found this poem and it fits me perfectly well, so I framed it and thought I would share this with everyone, I hope you all enjoy this as much as I do.....
             The Decorative Artist
My house is cluttered with paint bottles galore
Unfinished projects cover the floor.
Every free space is filled to the rafter
An "unfortunate symptom" of being a crafter.
Canvas and brushes of all shapes and styles
All stacked neatly in "organized piles"
The cupboards are bare; my family abandoned,
Grocery shopping can wait, there's wood to be sanded.
My dust bunnies are growing, I think they're conspiring,
The mountain of laundry is strangely inspiring
The floors need swept; there's dishes to be done,
Not exactly my idea of good, clean fun.
To cook ? To clean ? Or to paint ?
For some this decision could be the hardest,
But not for me, I'm a decorative artist !
                                                Arthur unknown by me anyway !  Wink
 of course I would never abandon my family " first things first " but I try to hurry ! Smiley
