I have makeup that I've used once and have since let it sit in my drawers unused because it just doesn't work for me. I see it on the shelf and I jump all over it. I have over $200 worth of high end makeup that I've used once. How terrible is that?
I calculated how much I've spent on Scrapbooking supplies in the past 8 yrs or so and I'm almost ashamed. It's not that I'm ashamed of the fact that I purchased it, with the intent to use it at one point, it's more of a shame that stems from having those supplies sit, collecting dust, for the past 3 years. It's also a shame that grows every time I purchase some new, amazing, supply that I don't need EVEN SINCE I've halted my scrapbooking endeavors.
Based on that last paragraph you would think that I'd pick it back up and figure out what to do with all of the stuff I've accumulated. Nope, that's not how I roll. I pick up a new hobby. THAT'S how I roll.
Last year I started crocheting. I was, and still am, addicted. I've got an unfinished king sized blanket sitting on my kitchen table. I have 12 skeins of yarn sitting in my closet waiting to be put into that blanket. I've got a basket, without any inner workings to hold it up and make it a proper basket, sitting in the same closet with those skeins of yarn. The only real crochet project I've finished since last year is a crochet hook holder.
Since that crocheted blanket isn't finished I should be working feverishly on it, right? NOPE AGAIN. I bought a sewing machine and hundreds of dollars worth of supplies to go with it.
Wanna know what I've made with that? A sewing machine organizer. A project that took 1/2 a yard of fabric and 10 minutes to finish. That's it. I've been playing with the machine more than I've actually used it.
The next thing on my hobby list is knitting, and needlepoint (which I kinda already know), and making vlogs and .... figuring out why I have such a problem sticking with one hobby for long periods of time.
