Crafter's ADD

I'm wondering if you ever feel like you are a hopeless case. Do you wonder why on earth your husband still loves you, and why your friends haven't commited you yet? I am now convinced that I'm going through some sort of mid life crisis. Let's call it pre-menopausal crazy(maybe). Or, perhaps I'm just a very obsessive person that must always have something to obsess about; kind of like the "stages" I spoke of before in THIS post.

Well, last week I went nuts with the fabric flowers. I think I made dinner once, and my poor husband has to walk around all of my "stuff" in this already crowded house. However, I find myself getting so excited about every new fun crafy thing I run across as I blog surf that I just want to try it all!!!

So, I hope you have seen all the flowers I have posted before. Here is a new one:

I'm so mad, because I made some more super cute ones that I sold and didn't take pictures of. :(

Then I went back to Hobby Lobby to get more fabric, but I just can't get it all done. Here comes the ADD.

Cut out shapes with new fabric

As you can see, still getting nowhere, well, maybe a little somewhere.

Find old clothes you never wear, pick some out for your thin friend and then dream about turning the rest into FLOWERS!

Take a break and go to TJ MAXX buy a skirt! (must have flowers)

Oh! Didn't that girl at Ruffles and Stuff have a super cute shirt she made? It was so simple, I bet I could make it! (even though I don't sew, but she makes me want to quit my job, move next door to her and sew ruffles all day!)
Let's try:

Not great pictures, and it isn't finished yet, but I knew it was my first try with a shirt I was willing to "play" with.

OH! But let's not forget the super adorable wreath I began to work on before Easter:

and please note that right in front of it there is wrap bracelet that I began before the wreath! And no, it isn't finished.

This is my work area:

The sewing machine has to go on the kitchen table, so when it is time to eat it all get's shoved somewhere or lands in ... where can I put all this??

Please remember I have at least 6 picture frames that need atention and the letters "CREATE" that I painted but have no where to go.

Mercy me, What IS wrong with me? Do I seriously need intervention? I want to send my boys camping for a week and get it all done. HA! Who am I kidding? Then I would have twice as many unfinished projects that I have found serfing in my "free time."

Need more retail therapy. Must but new $9.99 skirt at Ross which is right next to Hobby Lobby anyway.

What else can I say?
Finished flower pictures coming soon.. But don't hold your breath!
