I always feel like I don't have enough time to do anything, but at the moment I have loads of time. I'm not at uni, most days I don't have anything I need to do, but somehow I always fall short of time to do crafts.

I don't have a designated craft space, so I have to tidy up every day by 5pm otherwise I get yelled at by my parents for making a mess. It means I can't do things at night, it feels like time wasted. I will admit that I sleep late, I go to bed late so I can have some alone time away from my parents.

Sometimes I'm just not in the mood to make certain things, or use a certain technique/item like hand sewing (on a separate note: I don't like my current machine and thinking of getting a new one). I don't have a large selection of any equipment such as fabric, threads, glue etc, there is no space in my parents house to store anything, and I get told off daily for the place being a mess. To quote my mother: "if you have time to make things you have time to tidy up each day"

I want to get out of the house more, see friends or do courses to help me learn things but I have no money due to not having a job. I don't have a job because between uni course, a 5-week block of work experience for the course, trying to see my fiancé who live 1.5 hours away and works shifts so each week he has 2 days off which are never the same, I just don't have the commitment time and flexibility to have a job. I can't even try to do my own business of dog walking because I never know if I will be at home from one week to the next so I can't commit. The only way I can think of making money is to make the things that I do to a high quality and try selling them on etsy or ebay. If anyone knows of where else I could sell my creations please let me know. Currently they are plushies but I want to branch out to jewelry, trinkets, hand-made cards etc.
