"Craftophrenia"~ Dabbling in Everything!

Sorry I haven't been posting too much.  I keep getting depressed and overwhelmed when I see all the awesomeness that everyone is creating.  I haven't gotten a darn thing of my list completed yet. 

On the plus side, I have completely re-organized my papercraft section of my craft room.  Now, to organize the rest.

    Smiley Please don't be depressed! We all have different lives, and time needs.
Be Inspired! And most importantly, this thread isn't supposed to be intimidating, or a race. You aren't competing with anybody.  Wink It's really important to get organized; it helps a lot towards jump-starting some of those ideas!

  I went back and looked thru my list, and felt like I must have been nuts for listing some things. But, it helps get it out of our heads so we can actually get focused on some projects.
  my biggest problem is having too many things going, that I get another idea and want to drop whatever I am working on to start something else.
 For example: I was cutting down a large stack of 12x12 paper to use as backgrounds on my scanner, then I suddenly realized that those scraps were perfect Thank-You note widths, and would fit some tiny envies I have. So, guess what I spent the next 2 days doing? I'll be back later to show you!  Cheesy

Dawnstrees: Those gnomes are adorable! I'm sure the kid loves them! The necklace and the pyramid are awesome as well, but I can't get over those gnomes!

@dewshinesdopp...  I have mild OCD and seeing everything here intimidates me to the point that sometimes I just click for pics only.  Find your own groove and go with it.  Everyone here has done some amazing things as have you by getting organized.

I am in love with the gnomes!!

The zombie pyramid is awesome!!

I got sick of making menus and meal planning every week, so I made a weekly planner and a book of 5 weeks that I will rotate

I love that idea! I don't always live up to my meal planning potential...

Funny, I don't remember being absentminded...

I need a skein (two would be great) of Knit Picks Gloss Bare sock weight to finish a shawl.

I had to fix my beloveds workwear today - I got a bit carried away when patching the holes  Roll Eyes Luckily he's the kind of guy who doesn't give a hoot what anyone else thinks  Grin Mostly he wears a leather apron over them anyway.

This is one of my works in progress. A granny square felted bag.  All 72 squares are done.  Each row is going to have 12 squares.  Right now I'm working on sewing the squares together.  But in the meantime...  here are several pictures in progress.

These are all stacked in order of how I'm going to put them together and labled so I know which row is which. 

After I get the rows put together I have to make the bottom for the bag which will be black.  And I'm going to put a band of black around the top with a VERY long strap to go across my body.  Kind of like you'd wear a messenger bag. 

Rainbow IS a colour!

  my biggest problem is having too many things going, that I get another idea and want to drop whatever I am working on to start something else.

I use Wunderlist as my to do/"top up shop" shopping/presents I have to buy this year/cleaning/blog post/craft things I want to do list. It's free, syncs with my phone app and the web app (for when I'm at another computer). I find it good for when I get distracted like that - I add the new idea to my crafty list, open a note on it, with the link of whatever inspired me, and then get back to what I'm doing. Mind you, I'm on 4 for this year, so productivity clearly isn't my strong suit Wink

nilmerg - I can't believe you have enough for a bag already! Mind you, I want to outsource all of mine, so I'll have to wait longer.

awesome overall patches.

looking forward to the felted bag.

Finally managed to get my pottery wheel into the house. It only took 6 months, the house next door to be demolished and my OH to break back lifting...... Grin Ok the demolished house was a coincidence, that made things easier.
Now I need to re-configure my kitchen, so that i can actually use the wheel. It's sitting under the breakfast bar at the moment.
