You might be crafty if…..

You have paint splatters on the majority of your clothes

You have little round burn marks on your hands that could only be from a glue gun.

You don’t even notice the smell of spray paint anymore. (actually, you might even like it!)

Your kids have eaten sitting on the floor because your current craft project has overtaken your kitchen table.

You have more decorative pillows than you know what to do with.

Stop. Look around. You are in arms length of at least 3 things that you have made.

You look forward to Super Saturdays all year.

You have made every invitation to every party.

Your fabric scissors are off-limits to everyone (husband included)

Before any of your friends take their stuff to goodwill they let you go through it to see what diamond in the rough you can find.

You are on first name basis with the ladies who work at the craft store.

Your idea of relaxing is to sit and scrapbook for 2 or 3 hours.

You can’t believe people actually BUY their Halloween costumes already made.

You go to the craft store not needing anything and leave with $50 worth of stuff and 10 new things to make.

You have superglued your fingers together –more than twice.

You go to the craft store just because you have a 50% off coupon.

You don’t waste money on a manicure because your nails get covered in paint anyway.

You have box (or boxes) of crafts that you have done (and loved) that you have no room for in your house.

You have one project’s paint drying in the garage, a glue gun heating up for another project, all while you are putting the last finishing touches on another project

You sit down to check your e-mail and 10 hour on pinterest later……(and 10 more things added to your to-do list.)

Your kids have no plain shirts in their closet because you have decorated each one!

Your significant other has threatened to cut you off from crafting and the thought of it makes you want to cry. (and maybe a little sick)…(that is when you promise to actually cook a real dinner and do some laundry!)

Your (insert piece of furniture) has been sanded down and repainted. (maybe even more than once)

You have saved birthday cards, not because of the sweet things written, but because the front is so cute you know you can do something with it…(and maybe they weren’t even your birthday cards)

You have a container of ribbons. A container of buttons. A container of pom poms. A container of pipe cleaners. A container of glitter. A container of adhesives. A container of scissors. A container of ric rac. A container of zippers. A container of stamps. A container of foam. A container of trims. A container of fabric scraps. A container of stickers. A container of beads. A container of …….

You buy your glue sticks in bulk.

You have more photos in your phone of crafts than of your kids.
