And other Crafting Woes
During my blog break in December, I made several resolutions. That’s how you know a die-hard, hopelessly addicted blogger, by the way. We don’t make New Year’s resolutions. We make them during our blog breaks.
Focus, my friends. It’s all about focus.
One of my biggest, most eagerly anticipated goals is that of being craftier. This is no small challenge for us attention-deficit types, but the artist in me is itching to try. (Did you know that I was an Art major in college? I switched to English so I could procrastinate more. As in, you can write a paper in one night but you can’t complete a painting! Sad but true and I am still a twitch.)
Fine. So today we are working on an embroidery sampler, my 8-year-old daughter and me. I got her My First Embroidery Book by Winky Cherry for her birthday–and check out some of those prices on that link! I found our copy on Ebay very reasonably priced–and there it sat until after our Christmas to-dos were done.
Again, fine. We’re ready to begin our sampler but do you think I can find a sharpened pair of scissors to save my life? What have the kids been doing with them? They are all either covered with glue or duller than a kid in front of Dora.
Tell me the truth, my crafting friends. You hide your good scissors, don’t you?
All for the Greater Glory and then some,
