True Life: I have too many hobbies.

Yesterday I broke out some of my art supplies and started playing around with sketching and painting a little floral number for my daughter's room. I always forget how much I love to work with watercolors. After a crazy weekend it felt wonderful to relax and procrastinate a little. I've come to the conclusion that I have far to many creative hobbies and it's becoming more difficult to balance them all, or choose which project I would rather work on.
I've been crocheting up a few custom orders, trying to make a final decision for colors and products that will be featured in the handmade store, and trying to squeeze a few paintings and drawings in along the way. I'm not going to even discuss the several embroidery projects that are sitting around half done or the pile of fabric that is lying next to my sewing machine waiting to be loved. When will the madness end?
I have had a lot of interest in my paintings and have been asked quite alot if I will sell them in my Etsy shop or make custom orders, so what do you guys think?
Would you like to see prints of my work in my handmade store? What other subjects would you like to see me whip up?
If I can figure it out I may work on a series of paintings and turn them into prints and posters.
Let me know what you think!
