CA (craft-a-holics anonymous)

I have a sickness, y'all.

I'm a craft-a-holic. Yes, I said it.

I go from one obsessed craze to another. One minute I'm researching and learning how to make my own marble magnets. I buy the supplies and go to town and that Christmas maybe four friends receive their new hand made refrigerator accessories in the mail. I'll have glass rocks and magnets galore left over and then I find myself bored with the craft.

I have researched and taught myself how to make my own jewelry. I bought all the supplies and tools and voila I'm making necklaces and earrings to my little heart's delight. Before I know it...BAM!...bored. I don't feel like making my own accessories any more even though I have beads, spools of wire, and what not collecting dust in my craft closet.

I did teach myself how to crochet and that is something that I have continued to do so I am pleased about that. At least I committed to one darn craft. *sigh*

Now I have my eyes on another hobby and I'm trying to be reasonable about this and not let myself fall in love with yet another craft.

I just got a sewing machine for Christmas so I should be focusing on learning that beast instead of researching the internet on how to do this other thing. *sigh*

I need help.

Is there a rehab for craft-a-holics?

WHAT IS THE OTHER THING PLEASE TELL ME OH MY GOD I HAVE TO KNOW.
And it's only addiction if you admit it's an addiction. Have you met my friend Denial? She makes life - and crafting - oh so pleasant. <3!

OMG I have craft add...in the last year I have bought/received a loom, a sewing machine and all of my dearly departed grandmas crafting supplies. I have yet to loom or machine sew ANYTHING. Now I am taking a metal smith jewelry class and debating buying all the supplies for that.
