I am profoundly grateful for the little button labeled "spell check"

if it wasn't there I'd look like a blithering Idiot, so I can relate to brain going faster than fingers...

unfortunately it does nothing for correctly spelled but incorrectly placed or used words... Roll Eyes

YKYACW you show off your wallet at work and your co-worker doesn't believe you made it, so you have to point out your mistakes in it before he'll believe you.

I seem to craft for others rather than for me. I don't get the same kick out of wearing my own clothes as I do when someone else wears them.
Yesterday I made a skirt and a pair of trousers for me, and it was just work, and routine. Not that fun...
Is this only me or what?

You know you're a Craftster when...

You consider asking your boyfriend to move the dates of a dream holiday to Jamaica so you can participate in the next Friends of Craftster swap.

You also consider skipping your mother's birthday party this weekend in order to play with your new Print Gocco.

Not me,  I love making clothes for myself.  Speaking of which.

YKYACW you spending more time crafting stuff for swaps than you spend on all the other projects for yourself and family that you plan to craft.

Gotta try not sign up for so many swaps.  Hard when you are addicted.

Yep thats the reason why I wont even let myself look at the swaps that are starting up now. I'm trying to take the summer off and actually make some things for myself. Mostly because my boyfriend will get home from work and look at what I'm crafting and say oh that will look good on you. Then I have to say its not for me its for ____. Then he says well when are you going to make yourself that sweater?  Embarrassed

This was new for me!  YKYACW: the lady at the PO remembers how often you are in and hands you a stack of DC forms and some other forms saying "Your in here a lot, maybe you should just take these so you have them."  I was surprised and at the same time, embarrassed!LOL

* your at work at 3 american people come in during the day and you wonder if any of them are craftsters and you wonder if theres anyway you can find out, without asking outright if they made their t-shirt/necklace!

YKYACW- You've thought to yourself (on more then one occasion) that it would be a great idea to make Craftster pacthes with your screen name to put on your purses or jacket so that other craftsters can spot you with minimal effort.

I really think there should be some sort of universal symbol or sign that can be displayed so you know your among "your people". There's been so many times I wanted to approach someone thinking they might be craftsters to but don't want appear any crazier then I already am!

YKYACW you finally gather your cahones and sign up for your first craft faire, only to have your DH and your OWN MOTHER have the reaction of...."oh"  Angry Angry Angry !!!!and then the conversation is suddenly directed elsewhere.....so this ruins your entire week, and you decide to avenge your wrath by making bookoos of money, waving it in thier faces and not sharing a penny of it.

Now, I may NOT make bookoos of money - but any and all success will be used for nose rubbing, because I'm sick of being treated like "oh look, she's indulging in that HOBBY again"

Fer pete's sake.... Angry

good luck with your first craft fair... i went in one at the college in my city and i made $200+ in 2 days... not even full days... so really, my "hobby" turned out pretty damn good i would say... so good luck to you.. at least going in the fair you will get a better sense of what people are looking for right?
