Do you talk to yourself when you craft? Worse yet....do you answer yourself?

I sometimes talk my way through directions.....reading them aloud and then doing that step. I give myself occasional pats on the back (There! That's done!) or kicks in the butt (Well, it obviously doesn't go THAT way.) and may make random comments along the way. I utter a few well chosen words at drips, things that fall over, running out of spray paint and various other crafting problems. I may even talk to the project. (There, now, you just sit and dry and I'll be back later.)

Fortunately, I'm usually alone while crafting so except for everyone on the web who reads this, nobody knows....LOL!

I almost always have music going and I warble along......but, yes, I do also answer me......(Would this color look good? Yes...perfect choice!)

That's a nice, tactful way to put it! I think I talk my way through some new techniques and things but maybe me and my shadow self just take the time to converse???
