You Know You're a Crafter If...

... You've been slowly chipping away at holiday crafts and Christmas presents since July.

... You're so annoyed by all of the Christmas ads and decorations on TV and in stores, but not for the normal 'it's not even Thanksgiving!' reason. They're a constant reminder that you only have 1 1/2 more months to finish all of your holiday knitting/sewing/crocheting. 

... Your hands are numb from holding needles/hooks for too long. You start to wonder if they'll ever regain feeling.

... Your craft supplies storage area looks like a tornado went through it, but you know it won't be clean again until after Christmas. 

... You think thread/yarn snags are the most frustrating thing. Nobody has time to untangle that. 

... You have an unrealistic list of how many people will receive homemade presents from you this year. 

... And around this time, you start removing people from that list. I guess every single woman in my extended family doesn't need a hand-crocheted pair of fingerless gloves. Cookies are easier. 

... Your crafts take over your life. More importantly, your crafts take over you. 

To all of my fellow crafters out there, good luck with your projects this holiday season!
