My daughter has always been artistic and loves making crafts, but today I realized that her affinity for crafting has evolved into a full fledged addiction. There are a few signs that caused me to realize that this hobby has gone too far. The first is that she takes things out of the recycle bin quicker than I can put things into it. If I pick up an empty box or paper towel roll that I find laying around, she will scream like I make her eat worms or even broccoli, and beg me not to throw out her creation.
The next reason I know the crafting has gone too far is that whenever I am not watching, my daughter sneaks onto my laptop and looks at crafting blogs like this one or that one to get ideas for new creations.
The last reason I know that the crafting has gone too far, is that this morning when I came downstairs at about 9:00 with a slight headache and a need for a (large) cup of coffee, she asked if I could drink a beer "real quick" for her so she could have it for a craft she was making. Oh well, it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
