Don't you wish sometimes you can turn off your creative brain? Wink

I have to stop dreaming or thinking of more things I want to do and therefore buy!  That is why I am in this craftalong and the destash and the 50 projects and the crafting all the boards!! argggggghhh

I used to watch sitcoms before bed; fun, but nothing better to turn off the brain!  Unfortunately, a certain SOMEone has been spending a lot of time playing first-person shooters on the Xbox, so I'm left to my creative devices.

hmm... maybe that's why I've got this blasted headache!  (More likely it's all the shooting, though...)

I personally have a problem with the internet eating up most of my time.  Too much looking at things other people make, not enough working on my own projects.   Embarrassed

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Working a list really helps me--but I see another project and want to do it first...I am working hard to stay focused and on track...and not swap... Cheesy

Uh,Uh, this is sooooooo me.  Embarrassed
I can relate to almost any story here. And at the moment my right wrist hurts after a complicated tooth extraction. bummer. the rest it's getting over the weekend seems to do it some good, but now I don't dare to craft as I'm right handed. (typing one handed seems to go well though!)

I put a list in the 50 projects thread e few weeks ago and have done noting yet. shame,shame.

I actually finished something!  *faints*

I finished my Eventually Granny Square blanket

That's the good news.  The bad(?) news is that I already have plans for another one made with the same method, but with a different layout.  I haven't started it yet, though, so I'm not adding it to my list! Tongue

Well, I've completed a couple of things, and I have plans for a bunch more. But I've decided to be vague and not make a list. I wasn't doing too well trying to work that. >.<

My main problem is what I call the domino effect.I start to get the supplies to start project A,then I see project B and need to start that.Well then I see I need to finish reorganizing my craft room.And my mom just showed me about 9 books & pamplets for fall & Christmas crafts.So the dominos keep falling & I haven't done anything  Embarrassed.

I hear you anitacj...distraction by other projects keeps me from completing anything on a list...one thing always leads to another...

I have learned to accept this and I think I will be scaling down my lists for both the 50 projects and the craftalong for everyboard...if I can complete one project a month from a list, I am not going to sweat it...my crafting mojo calls to me in the weirdest way and I just need to listen to what needs to be made!
