I'm Simply NOT Crafty......but that's OK!
Well,I tried and failed! I was inspired by a blogging friend to make a dress for one of my little vintage dolls. How hard could it be... right? I didn't use any pattern...just thought it...cut it...and then sewed it together. I think a five year old could have done as well...to be sure! I am so NOT proud of myself. Why is it...your hands won't work as you mind can imagine? Don't ask me,but mine sure don't. Don't know that I will try anymore sewing. Maybe.. I should just stick to what I am good at,but now that I think about it....what would that be? Don't know that I am good at anything crafty. I crochet fair,but I wouldn't say good. I don't cook that well...really don't enjoy cooking either. Not like some ladies do! Guess,there isn't anything wrong with that though! Some people are just gifted with some very lovely talent and I am so happy for them...truly. I love seeing all the cute,beautiful,lovely fun things they create. I dream about doing some of those things,but nothing I do ever turns out really nice...or even good for that matter. Well,I am going to think on this some more. To be honest..I love to draw. I bought myself a sketch pad,some colored pencils and I am going to draw. I know my drawings won't be fine art,but they will be mine. Seems most everything I put my hands to,always turns out very simple in one way or the other. Childlike in some ways. I guess that is OK.....at least its uniquely mine. Don't think me as giving up..because that isn't the case! I am just going to be doing some exploring of sorts. Find what I think I can be good at and build on that skill. This is a bit of one of my rambling post...I don't mean to sound negative toward myself....just talking myself through a lesson :) Encouraging myself,if you will! A bit of self therapy! So that you don't think I am all down on myself ...there are a few things I consider myself to do fairly well....................
Sing...I sing at church,and have sung in some public events.
I have wrote some songs and poetry.
As I have already said...I can crochet fairly well.
I love to decorate my home,friends home,shop windows,etc.
I don't think I draw to bad,but pretty simply.
I have been told I have a pretty hand writing...although my hands don't work as well now as they once did .
Pretty good with a glue gun.
When I discover something else I will let you know :)
On another note...to let you all know how my friend is doing...she came through the surgery fine. She will be going back to the doctor in about three weeks to discuss the other things...for now she is doing good. I am thankful for that. Please,just remember Betty in your prayers...thanks so much friends.
