Are you a crafty witch?
By crafts, I mean stuff like crocheting, quilting, stamping, scrap-booking…all that kind of stuff.
I’ve never made any secret of my sad lack of talent in the craft arts. And frankly, I’m the impatient sort–if I want something, I go to the store and buy it. Or even better, Wizard goes to the store and buys it for me. The only thing close to crafts I’ve ever done was cake decorating. I took one class and had a blast.
However, BLB wanted to go into Michael’s store to look at some craft wood. I don’t even know what that is, or what he planned do with it. But I was game. So we walked (well, he hobbled on his crutches) into the store and I was immediately sidetracked.
Did you all know that you could make jewelry? I knew this on a vague level. But then I saw the rows of all the pretty jewelry I was in instant lust! Pendants and charms, and chains and …WOW! It was so much fun to just to look. I started making all these grand plans about taking a class, and learning how to make jewelry. Naturally I was thinking about making book thongs too (a kind of bookmark). How cool would that be?
Sadly, by the time I got home, I remembered my lack of time, and my lack of will. I have a serious lack of follow through on anything craft-like. Bummer. Weird because I have a decent follow through with going to the gym.
Anyway, I’ll probably just stick to writing books. But tell me, do you all do crafts? What do you enjoy doing?
