craft room

Marilyn H: “You know you are a crafter when just one small section of your wall looks like this! ”


paint on fingers

Jill F: “When you have more paint on your fingers than your nails…”


Linda: “when your hobby takes over your spare Grandkids bedroom and still not enough room so onto another room in house LOL”


vacation crafting

Doreen: “when you pack a carload of craft supplies for vacation!”


organizing vinyl

Alyssa: “when you get all excited to use your Silhouette and vinyl scraps to…organize your Silhouette vinyl scraps. :)”



Dawn “You have to clear the fabric off the family room table in order to serve dinner, lol… ”


Sheeka: “when you herniated two disks and set up a crafting “space” in the middle of your living room floor since you know you won’t be mobile for months!”


Ronda: “You drive to Hobby Lobby on your lunch break instead of eating a lunch.  Your coworkers know this about you and ask you to pick up something for their kids & grand kids because you always go.  And then when you can’t get out of said craft store without spending more money than you intended because you discovered just one million more thing that you had to have.  You leave the store looking like a bag lady that will only live to craft another day.”


Iuliana: “You go to a farm type museum and you wish it was an antique shop so you can buy  their display.”

Hope you enjoyed another round of You Know You’re a Craftaholic When…! I sure did! Did you like the photo contest, or do you prefer the fill in the blank version?

happy crafting,


Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥

    I voted. I enjoyed seeing the fun photos, but honestly, it was what was said that grabbed my vote (and my laughture) so it doesn’t really matter. I could relate to all the entries even though I’ve never broken my foot or herniated a disk. Sorry to hear that girls and good luck to everyone.

    I enjoyed the photo version. I can totally relate to the contestants and feel like “I’m not the only one!”

    oh my goodness these are hilarious and I don’t know which one I like more!! I can totally relate with them.

  8. 11

    A majority of these border on the edge of hoarding which is so scary to me!! I think you should have offered an organization prize instead of more stuff!!

      happy crafting,

    I love the photo contest. It’s fun to see something “real”. I wish I had time to enter this contest.. would love another chance.

    Great job to those who entered.

    I loved the photos….just mad at myself that I never got my pic uploaded properly to enter myself. When are you going to post all the winners of all the “great stuff” from the contest??? I’m so looking forward to finding my name listed for one of the prizes…especially the workbox !!!

    Not to be mean or anything, but the hoarding pictures don’t need more crafting supplies! Seriously…vote for me, because I do. I am number 9 :))). But if I didn’t want to win this thing, I’d probably vote for the cast and the spray paint. It was hilarious.

    Linda, you can delete this comment if it’s not ok to shamelessly sell myself like this:)

    I liked the photo version but not as much as the fill in the blank. I have a {new} “You Know You’re A Craftaholic When…..” that my Hub thinks is hilarious but we never got a pic of the incident. I would have totally won!

    I cant believe there is someone else besides me who takes their crafts on vacation with them. HAHAHHA

  17. 20

    Haha! I can relate to almost every one of these.

    I love these! There are several that are *me* to a T—nice to know I’m not alone :)
