If you're looking for crafty & creative, look away....
The best drawing I can do is a mighty stick figure & the kids will still ask me what the heck that's supposed to be.
I really admire how some of my fellow bloggers have all these pretty pictures up and a dazzling website - not here.
Here you get what you get!
Sorry folks! I just learned to throw in some clip art to distract you from my typos & lack of proofreading. This is as crafty as I get. Yeah, I know - awesome and amazing, right?
Okay.... I may be a little envious of those other blog sites who have pretty, pretty flowers & beautiful backgrounds. Don't even get me started on all the crafty little mommies - whatever. It's all I can do to get through the day with what I've got to get done - never mind making it all pretty.
I, my friends, am NOT an crafty little overachiever!
In the words my kids are not allowed to use, I can't do it!! Oh and I've tried. I've sat with my daughter doing her little projects for class and she runs circles around me. She can design a background, make beautiful little birds with clay and pipe cleaners & then a pretty little nest out of things she's gathered from the back yard. If I tried to do that, I can assure you it would be a hot mess! And um, my daughter is 9.
My son - amazing! He can look at his hand and draw this fascinating sketch of his hand in 4 dimensions with ivy flowing out of it and magnificent shadows that make me stare in awe.
Anything I draw looks the same. I love that my kids have this! I'm logical and mathematical.
I have a wonderful & deep admiration for all of you ultra-organized crafty folks, who have everything down to an exact science.
It would truly make my brain explode!
So again...If you're looking for crafty and creative - look elsewhere! I'm sometimes witty, sometimes dramatic, sometimes I've got some amazing insight and sometimes I'm just a blithering idiot...In any case, hope you enjoy the show!
As always, thank you for reading my blog.
Have a wonderful and amazing week!!
