What kind of craft loser blogs about what she isn't making? Well, me.
I had to just say no to two fun craft opportunities recently and while I am proud of myself for recognizing my time limitations I'm also really bummed.
Opportunity 1: A friend invited me to join her monthly handmade card swap. It would have meant making 8 - 10 cards each month and a get-together to exchange them. Doesn't that sound like fun?
Opportunity 2: A note comes home in Peter's (my five yr. old) backpack that says they are switching one learning center from a play house to a play post office and any donations for it would be welcome. How much fun would it be to sew up a little mail carrier bag? Picture it - kid sized, denim, corduroy, canvas? a little freezer paper stencil of the USPS logo?? I had to be honest with myself though and realize that their little post office would be just fine without my handmade letter carrier bag and that I should really focus on some of my many other works in progress. But come on, wouldn't it be so cute? oh well
Okay, in my next post I promise to write about something I AM doing.
