Oh, friends. Friends, friends, friends.
The tenth commandment says that we are not to covet. In other words, don't be jealous. As the teenagers say it, "DON'T BE JELLY!"
Hi, I'm Jen the Newlywed, and I feel old. I just started a sentence with "As the teenagers say it...". Wow, I might as well start calling them whippersnappers. Those crazy kids! Hooligans!
Back to my point (I have one, I promise) and my point is this:
I AM JEALOUS OF PEOPLE WHO ARE CRAFTY.
If you've been a resident of blog world for any period of time, then you know what I'm talking about. These people seem like they can do it all.
I need lessons. I need help. I need a mentor.
I need to be able to start a craft project without having the mindset of "I bet I can get this done in 3 minutes or less". I am Speedy Gonzales when it comes to crafts and they are MESSY. I am creative and artsy..... but more in the musical sense.
I can sing you a song like no one's business. I can sing with Celine-Dion-style hand movements and fist pumps. Especially when I sing "Circle of Life" from the Lion King. THAT IS CREATIVITY LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT.
But if you ask me to scrapbook, I will scotch tape 2 photos onto a blue piece of paper and call it a day.
My question is this...
If you are like me and are NOT crafty, do you also feel jelly of the people that are?
If you are the opposite of me and you ARE crafty, how do you do it all? And were you born this way? And also, will you teach me to sew? Even just sewing a button on a shirt?
Cause Grant always wants me to sew some buttons and I'm always like "yeah, that would be neat if I knew how to do that".
