Are you as obsessed with crafts and Pinterest as I am?
I love scouring Pinterest for pins related to whatever my current obsession is. I have several Christmas/Winter related Pinterest craft boards. Right now, my obsessions include snowmen, ornaments, clothespins, and anything winter-y. Oh, and magnets. I love to make magnets. Bottlecap magnets are my favorite, but at the moment, I’m thinking of making some clothespin magnets with snowman faces for the Christmas craft fair at work next month. Working in an office, magnets are always my biggest sellers.
I think I have a new “character trait” that I’m calling Obsessive Craft Disorder. I also have fairly mild Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, so I think this is fitting. I get some idea in my head and I’ll spend hours and days looking at all kinds of Pinterest boards, blogs, and magazines finding examples and figuring out what I want to do. Then, I’ll go to Michael’s or shop online on Amazon or eBay finding everything I need, and by the time I get it all together, I usually have moved on to a new obsession. As a result, I have quite a large
hoard collection of various craft supplies. I often think about purging some of them, but I can’t bring myself to actually do it. I have a craft room/office Pinterest board full of all the ways I’m going to store all these supplies in visually appealing ways. I can’t get rid of them.
Currently, I have about 65 or so different boards on Pinterest and the vast majority of them are either craft-themed or food-themed. I like to pin organization and cleaning tips that I never use, too. Maybe I need a procrastination tips board. I’ll do that later.
So, back to the crafts.
Take a look at a few of my favorite Pinterest boards below and share your links in the comments! If you follow my board(s), I will follow you back. I love seeing what everyone else is interested in.
Here are a couple ornaments I have made which were inspired by pins on my boards. The Christmas tree was made from a real cinnamon stick, some faux pine branches, buttons, and hot glue. For the snowman, I used a golf ball, puffy paint, hot glue, little hats I found online, and eye hooks. I think these came out really cute.
Thanks for taking the time to read. I do appreciate it. Don’t forget to leave your links in the comments!
