People think I’m opposed to others who are crafty. This is so not the case. I’m just so uncrafty and simply uninterested in becoming crafty that my attitude may come across as derisive. Hey, if I could handcraft a tea kettle cozy while waiting for my turn at the dentist, maybe I would. But I can’t. So I don’t. My feeling is, I’m over forty years old and so far I’ve never once lustily eyed a spool of yarn and thought oh the things I could do with you Senor String! How you tease me from your shelf at JoAnnes – I am so bringing you and all of your yarny friends home with me and we’ll do stuff. Oh yeah! No, that’s just not me. Hell, I can barely wrap a gift acceptably. I’m just happy those gift bags are so in style although my ability to work with colorful tissue paper is a bit pathetic.
But in Naptime, I mention my friend Crafty Susan quite a bit because she has a way with fabric, cooking, decorating, gluing and working with things you’d buy at Michael’s. Her real name is Shannon and she is seriously quite cool. She finally decided to cash in on her talents and has opened her own webstore with stuff for hip kids which I think everyone should check out. Why not? It’s Sunday.
Also, here’s another blog I recommend. I can’t help it, sometimes someone who is witty and opinionated just strikes me and I have to give them a little shout out. Go back in her archives to read her opinions on religion and gay marriage. I found myself fascinated for a few hours. She also has some group called allmediocre of bloggers which, of course I haven’t been invited to join because no one ever invites me to anything blogwise. But that’s okay. I’ll survive in my passive aggressive way. http://www.amomtwoboys.com/
