HA. Can you relate??



  1. The only thing for me you forgot is that I’m still frustrated when I unplug the glue gun and the project sits for a few days. Then I find something else to get excited about and get/gather the supplies for it. Start it; get frustrated; go back to the other project; get re-frustrated; and now my situation is compounded by more stuff that isn’t working out.
    It seems that I never get anything done when it comes to crafting. 🙁

      Oh noooo! Sometimes you do need a few days before you can fully see a project through. Keep at it, Maureen!! xo

  2. Haha YES! This describes my crafting process to a T. Even the part about leaving the glue gun plugged in (how did you know??). I might even add some alcohol consumption in there if it’s a really bad crafting day, lol. But I wouldn’t stop crafting for the world, it always turns out worth it!! xoxo

      A glass of wine is always a good thing, crafting or not! HA. Keep up the great work, friend.

  3. Love it Amy because it is all true ( yep I always leave the glue gun on !!)
