Yes I’m guilty of it 😦
If your unsure what procraftinating is here is a good definition. The putting of housework side of it in order to craft I don’t find bad (why remove the dust when its only going to come back right?) What I need to work on is putting craft projects aside as soon I get to a step in them which I’m unfamiliar with. My brain just screams “I don’t know how to do this runaway!!” The item gets put aside and suddenly I’m doing other things (but not housework) This happened again last week when I had to stitch some legs together. I made the tops of the legs without issue but when I needed to stitch the bases in I panicked as I didn’t know how I was going to fit a round circle into what seemed like a rectangle shape. For the rest of the week I kept making excuses not to touch them (I was too tired, it was too hot, my hands were dirty) then before bed one night I thought the task through in my head and came up with a plan. I would tack around the circle like you do a yoyo to draw it up so it was 3 dimensional and then pin the leg top around it. When I tried it the next day it worked straight away and I completed the 4 legs in no time.
I need to stop this way of thinking. Ok yes so maybe I needed to think this task through but that doesn’t mean I should’ve been avoiding it like I was. This happens to me every time I face something I’m unfamiliar with. Its the reason why I haven’t really touched my ScanNCut machine. I should face my crafting fears and give everything a go.
