Finding the time to do it all

For some reason, I have no trouble finding the time to cook and bake. But I can't seem to find the time to sew. I can find the time to go material shopping and buy more material for projects that I hope to tackle soon.
Here's my latest purchases:

The dinosaurs are for a bib or two with the intention to sell them. The green w/ red and white candies are to make a simple skirt for my DD for Christmas next year. The puppies is for another simple skirt for my DD for this spring/summer. And the last material, pink and brown, is to make pillow case dresses to sell and if enough material is leftover, a bib as well. I just love this last material. So much so, that I want to make a dress for my DD with it. I also picked up some inexpensive ribbon and some clips to do mitten clips for my DS who can't seem to keep his mittens on.
Sorry for the glare.

And well, I really wanted to knit and for some reason, can't seem to wrap my head around it. So I picked up a knitting loom in the hopes that I could finally make something. Well, it's working. I am able to work on this when I'm sitting down relaxing at night once the kiddies are in bed. It's a simple scarf but I'm loving how it's turning out. The wool I picked up is so soft and chunky. Just loving it!

So we'll see how the sewing goes.
And of course with DH buying me a beautiful red KitchenAid mixer for my birthday, I really need to put that to good use LOL.
I think that I will have to pick one thing to do each day, either a recipe or a craft, and then work on that one thing instead of trying to get everything done on the same day.
I'll let you know if this works for me ;)
