- anything nice to say
- something that you would find entertaining
Today's entry was this -
If I could have any skill, it would be craftiness. I wish I were able to create beautiful things with my hands (and maybe a hot glue gun or a sewing needle). I mean, I've got a computer and Photoshop / InDesign ... but it's just not the same as THIS -

I've been a Pinterest user since 2011, and I have yet to create any of the things on this board.
I go to Hobby Lobby like any average American 20something female. I usually buy picture frames or Christmas decorations. I don't make my own.
Why you might ask?
I am afraid of making something ugly. Or ruining perfectly good crafting supplies in the process.
For some reason, I have little faith in my crafting abilities.
Don't blame my mother. She tried to teach me how to sew. I even made pajamas one year! I took the 4-H gift wrapping, wreaths and ceramics projects. All of her hard work (and many other volunteers and family members) and none of it stuck. [Homeboy gets mad I can't sew on his buttons...]
Maybe one day I'll get brave and try again.
- a t-shirt quilt (I have 50+ t-shirts from college reserved for this purpose)
- a succulent garden
- coffee filter flowers
So tell me crafty friends - where do you get your inspiration? What lessons have you learned while wielding your glue guns and needle/thread? What's a good starter project?
Until next time,
P.S. - Guess what folks? I turn 24 on Sunday, but I'll save my post about this "bucket list" for next week.
