I wish I could be more crafty. You know, do fun projects and actually have them turn out good. Don't get me wrong, I LIKE all things crafty I just tend not to be very good at them.
When I was a kid I loved drawing pictures even though I wasn't good at drawing. Let's be honest--my greatest art work always included stick men and even that is questionable. I loved painting even though I wasn't good at painting. Unless, of course, it was finger painting and in that case I totally rocked it. Whenever we did crafts at school or church I got right in there and enjoyed every second of it. I just wasn't good at it and often my would be the oddest looking one in the bunch. But back then I didn't care, I was just having fun.
Now that I am an adult I feel like if I am going to make something and have it look totally ridiculous then I probably shouldn't be making it. But then I ask myself, why the heck not? I mean I am not trying to impress anyone but myself (and Chris). And if it is something I enjoy during my free time--which I have a lot of these days--then to hell with how uncrafty it looks.
I have been trying to think lately of some easy fun projects I can do, especially with the holidays upon us. I am not really sure what direction I am thinking, but there has to be something out there I can get my hands on and try my best to be creative and make something that will be somewhat useful to me or someone else.
So come on, I know there are a few of you out there who actually read this blog who are pretty crafty so give a girl some ideas. Help my untalented self in the right direction. And who knows, if you're lucky maybe I will post some of my craftiness for you all to judge and laugh at. ;)
