Last year I was nearly insane by the time I finished an afghan for my Mom's birthday Nov. 30th. I was then thrown into some major sewing projects for a huge Christmas party being held two weeks after this. Of course owning a Cricut meant everyone dropping off toys, tablets, laptops, cell phone cases and even storage closets to have designs put on them. I love it when one of them said, "Oh, you look tired. You really need to start getting some sleep at night." Really? Then YOUR stuff won't get done.
This year I decided that I would do a minimum of 1 row per day on 4 more afghans for family members. Of course DH just threw 16 costume jobs in my lap and I didn't find out about it until these guys started showing up to be measured.
I really love crafting but I really hate having demands put on my time. I knit, crochet, sew, serge, make wooden and canvas wall signs, do customized Yetti's, alot of canning, soapmaking, t-shirt designs, car decals and the list goes on but I find that my creativity doesn't just come on when I wake up every morning. I have to be in the mood. I never wanted my crafting to become a job.
