Do you ever feel like everyone else is doing something that you could be doing? Because I feel that way. I woke up one day and realized, everyone else is doing it. Being crafty, that is. I’m not exactly the most creative teacher on the hallway, I’ve never sewn anything, and I can barely draw a stick figure. Both of my sisters are incredibly talented with their photography and create beautiful portraits. Whitney loves to cook and makes much of their food from scratch. Seriously, from scratch. She once told me that her husband took a completely homemade pb & j sandwich for lunch. Homemade bread. Homemade peanut butter. Homemade jelly. And Beverly is a phenomenal decorator (you should see her house!) and makes lots of cool things for her kids and friends. She made Peaches the cutest bow holder for Christmas and some of my favorite burp clothes when Molly was born. My husband draws the cutest pictures on notes he leaves for me and I have friends that are artists, writers, and one who sewed her guest room bedding and window treatments. And in my daily online adventures, I’ve come across a lot of crafty mamas. (Check out two of my favorites, here and here!)
So, I’ve decided that I want to get in on the action, too. One of the things on my “Ten in 2010″ list is to make something for Molly. The only problem is, is that I have to decide what to make.
