Hello, my name is Jen and I am an addict

What the hell are you talking about woman?  That title has us all worried about you.  Don't worry, I didn't finish.  I am addicted to many things, but I am not harming myself.  Read on and you will see.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to Sephora.  If you don't know what that is, click here.  It deals with all things beauty.  My mom is probably reading this going huh?!?  Tomboy Jen is addicted to..... makeup!  Oh, yes ladies and gents.  I love me some good make up.  Fancy Eyeliners, shadows, powders, blushes, lipsticks, mascara, you name it.  I have lip plumpers, glitter shadow, 6 kinds of mascara, heated eyelash curler.  My new favorite brand is Philosophy.  I got a big old shipment in today and have tried each and every new item out.  I may have to do an entire post to the amount of beauty products I have fallen in love with in the past couple of years.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to Yarn.  New shipment is arriving on Friday.  I am making a froggy for mama dawg and it just gave me an excuse to buy some fancy yarn and awesome discount prices.  When you are a crafter, you know who to go to for the best buys.  I actually hide my stash from my husband.  It is in 5 separate locations around the house so he has no idea the actual amount of yarn I have at any given time.  Actually, that goes for all of my craft projects.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to Office Supplies.  I think that is why I became a teacher.  The best gift I ever got was a gift card to Office Max.  It must be a teacher thing.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to monkeys.  If you have ever seen my other blog, you would know this is very true.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to beads.  I make and sell jewelry on the side and I can't go into a store that sells beads without spending way too much time looking through and purchasing new beads.  On last count I had over 50,000 beads in my stash.  It could be closer to 75,000.  I really need to make some more soon.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to cheese.  All kinds of cheese.  I love it all.  Not a day goes by where cheese is not in my diet.  Sad, I know.

Hello, my name is Jen and I am addicted to..... shit, fill in the blank.  If you are still reading this tell me your secret addictions.  I won't tell.  Or maybe I will make a big ass o'l blog post about our favorite addictions.  I won't put names, I promise.....


  1. beads, books, dvd's, music, games, my blog, picture know, if you call them hobbies, then they're not addicting...right?

  2. since I got pregnant, my biggest focus has been kicking my coffee addiction - but after that

    office supplies
    my couch

  3. oh heaven a fellow yarn addict!
    I'm addicted to knitting books too. Goes with the territory.

    good addictions: coffee
    quilt fabric
    (have never made a quilt but it's a family addiction...)
    bad addictions: smoking I know I know


Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
