Okay, so here's the current "To-do" list:
- Hack my Ikea end tables- I have 4 cheap Lack style tables that I want to put my own twist on.
- Sew Christmas flannel pj pants- Personal tradition, I buy a new pair every year to wear on Christmas morning, for some unknown reason I thought, in the midst of everything else I have going on, I'd make a pair, rather than buying them for say $10 at Target. I really am a glutton for punishment.
- Sew quilted tote- There was a pattern sale, I had no intention of making one, now I have the pattern so the next logical thing is to make the tote...
- Finish decorating powder room- this involves painting the vanity, framing out the mirror, installing a new vanity light, etc.
- Finish decorating dining room - partially done, have to fix the wall where I had to change the mirror hanger position, need new sconces, a vase and some reeds to which I plan to add mini lights.
- Make Christmas cards- I've hand-crafted cards for the last, I dunno, 4-5 years, not sure if I should accept defeat and just buy them this year or keep the tradition alive and get back to papercrafts.
- Decorate for Christmas- I have absolutely no holiday decor. Part of me is thinking to get the bare essentials to make it through this year and then stock up after the season when everything is discounted.
So, what are you tips for conquering crafting A.D.D? Or am I doomed? I'm thinking of "forcing" myself to pick one project and finish it, just to start. I just hate the thought of "forcing" though, shouldn't crafting be more natural? I think having so much to do is just overwhelming me and instead of tackling it, I avoid it.
Maybe I should take a day or two off of work and get to it!
