I wish I was crafty but sadly not

I'm too much of a perfectionist to do crafts. There are just too many options to make something just right. I tried scrapbooking, but everytime I had a better idea, learned something new, or saw someone with better pages, I wanted to throw mine away!

I am super-crafty! I'm the kind of person who can't sit still and am always fidgeting so I took up knitting years ago. I also make jewelry. The best is that I have a group of girlfriends who also craft and we get together and have "crafternoons."

i haven't done anything lately (too busy studying for the lsats. ew.), but i used to knit a lot and make most of my jewelry. in high school/during college vacations i worked at a bead store where you could buy supplies to make your own stuff, and it was horrible for my bank account but fabulous for inspiration!

I definitely always have a project going, but I'm along the YumSugar lines - I need to finish them one of these days!

My boyfriend knows when I'm stressed because there's cut up magazines all over the living room and something is decoupaged. :) lol

I voted yes, I always have a craft project going, but you didn't have the option for, "yes i always have a project (or 4) going, but I am far too busy (or lazy) to finish any of them. *sigh*" because if you did, that's what I would have voted for.

I do. I have recently started cross stitching (thanks to Jennifer76), and I quilt and sew, I've built a headboard, refinished old dressers, I scrabbook and I love photography. I do a lot more crafty things now that I stay at home.

I always have something going on-- right now I'm working on a painting for above my bed; I was gonna work on it last night, in fact, but figured I'd save it for the weekend.

I like being crafty, but rarely find time to work it into my schedule. I think it takes a distant backseat to other hobbies. I recently took a knitting class though, which is something that I can do while watching tv or traveling, which is really the kind of project I need.

I'm one of those people who has spurts of motivation for creativity. When I'm in the mood for crafting projects, I go for it and I'll be working on it for days straight. Then there will be long periods where I just leave my projects alone until I feel like working on them again.

My crafting is ruled by my schedule. Some weeks I have time to devote to crafting, others not one extra minute. Sadly I haven't had a chance to do much over the past few months. When I do have time I knit, crochet, sew, or do something crafty to help decorate my place.

Not the crafty type - I'm ADD when it comes to that and get bored and don't finish what I start! :(
