    Cannot stop crafting! I love it. 17th Feb 19 at 12:03 PM
    Hi all, I just do not know when to stop crafting!
    I started about 2 years ago making hand sewn beaded jewellery, non stop for months. Then I decided to have a go at decoupage, again, went on for months. In between I have been experimenting with gold leaf applications on various objects. Now I have just started with washi tape, I expect months of that also.
    You can imagine my stash of so much mixed media over the two years and it is making me think I need to stop and take stock but do not feel that will happen.
    Do I need therapy? or should I just keep going with my passion and eventually buy a larger house?
    Live, Love, Craft!

    So true, I guess we have always been a crafty race. Currently making jewellery again, next a large decoupage project and after that who knows?
    Finished my first acrylic painting, will add a photo later.

    Hmm, I'd have to vote for the larger house! Keep going! Crafting is cheaper than therapy and you get pretty things at the end of it! I've recently taken over my daughter's aqua beads, its a bit like diamond painting!

    A bigger house it is then, lol.
    I have tried to post a photo of my painting but being a newby here I am not allowed, shame. I will look into when I will be able to post images.
