  • Worst Crafting Habit

    We all have them - admit it! Mine is doing my beading on the couch! I sit with a cushion on my lap, the bead box on top of the cushion and the pattern on the seat beside me.... gives me a right neck ache, but I can't seem to change my ways!

        Me too! I use one of those dinner-trays (the sort with a beanbag on the bottom) with the bead box and pattern and a small halogen light on it...

          Me too! But my silliest habit is having quite a large table space for painting and crafting, and then working on the floor? How daft is that then?

            I suppose the most stupid thing I do is when a bit of quilling goes pinging off across the room I then spend the next half hour grovelling around on my hands an knees looking for it, usually don't find it and then proceed with making another one! I would be easier just to quill another one straight away, but I never learn, I have to have that shape back!

                Mine is impulse buying, I see something & just buy it, I've got so many stamps and things I'll never get around to using. I'll never make any money at this, but hey, I love it

                  I flick the excess off double sided tape on the floor, and the little white squares off foam pads too!

                  My excuse is that they get everywhere anyway so what's the point in trying to get them in the bin?!!!

                    Same here for all previous.
                    What annoys me the most is finding bits of sellotape stuck to my socks and I have a craft table but I have no idea where to strat with regards to tidying it up and organising everything which would leave me with a lovely clear workspace.Instead I work in a 20cm by 20cm space and put things on top of other things!!Very odd.

                      My worst habit is seeing a new craft, thinking "ooh, I can do that" buying loads of stuff and then getting bored and giving up. I have tried needle felting, embroidery, hama bead jewellery, bag making etc. I have just made a mobile and will definately make more but we'll see how long it lasts!!!

                        Ha ha, Freja, that sounds like me too! I try everything then move onto something else! But most things I DO go back to eventually, and some things I am always interested in, whatever else I am doing.

                        I have a really annoying habit of seeing things that other people have made and thinking "I could do that" - I really must learn that there arent enough hours in the day or days of the week to do everything that I want to!

                              I have two -

                              1 -
                              leaving the little square paper bits off the back of foam pads all over the house. It drives my OH crazy. He once woke up with one stuck to his forhead. lol

                              2-
                              Buying 12x12 papers with every intention of using them & not as they are too nice. It sound mad saying it out loud. Or if I do use a sheet I have to replace it with the same sheet. Which defeat everything.

                              My mum & OH think im mad as they say you bought it to make cards with, its not doing much being stuck in a really useful box.

                              I hope im not alone
