How often does your crafting get in the way of housework?

I have to craft at night or else it distracts me from everything else I have to get done!

Sometimes, but not too often.

How about let's change it to "how often does your housework get in the way of your crafting?"   hahahaha - that's how I feel!!!

Really though, since discussing with DH about making this a more productive ($$) year for my crafting habit, I've had to carve out specific times of when I will be doing crafting/business stuff, my school stuff, and my housework stuff.

It doesnt. I dont have alot of crafting that i do, more often i go to craft and see something that needs to be cleaned and end up cleaning instead of crafting

all the time :) But we're generally pretty neat so if we go a few days without doing much it's not that bad.

while some of my projects take a long time, I can put a load of clothes on and put some in the dryer and go back to finishing what ever i was working on.,,my crafting has gotten to be obbession around my house.which i should slow down some.

I can't really do much while the kids are tearing up the house anyway, so I do most of my housework at night after they go to bed. I have been cross stitching a lot during the day. I still have some unpacking to do, but I'm just lazy lol. I'd rather cross stitch anyway!
