Creative Dilema

Last night I scrapped. I sat down and actually pulled out my supplies for the first time since we moved to our house. It felt oh so good. And yet at the same time it just about drove me crazy. You see I have a problem now. I am torn between my love for two things craft related. I need to scrap. It isn't just a hobby. It's life. I have to scrap or I will lose my mind. It is a part of me.

But at the same time I absolutely adore crocheting. I never in a million years thought I would love it as much as I do. There is something so rewarding about seeing your hard work pay off. I love crocheting. I love scrapping. And that is where my problem is. How do I choose which I make time for? It is so frustrating because I wish I could do both at the same time. I have 100 ideas for blankets swimming around in my head. I still have to finish up my granny square throw before I can take on another blanket.

And to top it off I choose 2 very expensive hobbies. I mean have you priced yarn lately? And if you scrapbook I don't even need to tell you how expensive that gets. Thankfully hubby has no idea. So I am torn. And yes I can just alternate nights but it still gets rather annoying. I so did not need another hobby. Oh and I still plan on taking sewing lessons from my aunt. I think I have lost my mind.

Tonight I think I will crochet. Or maybe scrapbook. No crochet. No scrap. See this could go on all day.
