I have Crafter’s A.D.D., and it’s terminal…

So I am having a nice chat with my dad today about this, that or the other in crafting and he says “you have way too many crafts going on at one time.”

Now my first inclination was to hmmppfftt at him with a cranky “NO I MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT!”, retort. But quite honestly he is right. 

It is because of what I describe as my Crafter’s A.D.D. So that, coupled with my OCD insistence on making sure every new craft I pick up has all the assorted items to go with it, I basically have ten bazillion craft projects going at one time. 

It is kind of like if you give a mouse a cookie. 

If you give a me a zipper, then I want fabric to make a pouch, but then I want a snap to make a wallet, but then I want an elastic for a matching headband, but then I need a bead for a coordinating bracelet… and it just goes from there. 

I am in the middle of chair covers one day, when I see a design that would look cool woodburned, so I picked up a wood burning tool set and all it’s accompaniments, then got distracted by a free pattern for a purse, but that purse needed a snap, then I saw kamsnaps which lead to my keyfob craze, which has turned into nautical bracelets, which turned into resin pendants and so on and so forth. 

And it is just like this. All. The. Time. I have so many ideas in my head at once it is hard to channel them into focus on just one thing at a time. I shall refer to this as my creative genius. GENIUS!!!! Lol. Probably just more like full on crazy. But creative genius sounds way cooler so that’s the story I’m sticking too 😜.
