It all started a month or so ago at our last Relief Society meeting that was done much like Homemaking of yesteryear. We made cards and Boo Blocks. (3 blocks with scrapbooking paper and the letters B-O-O modge podged on.) And I realized that although I'm not really crafty, I really enjoy being crafty. (I know some of you are scoffing at that statement because of the hats I've been making, but that's a different genre of crafty that I'm talking about.)
It continued when I went to Roberts the other day to get some yarn and they had a table set up of Christmas crafts and instructions of how to make them. A couple of those crafts mixed with my desire to have some sort of Thanksgiving decor.
The result? I was crafty!
Like, I came up with the idea (not the idea of how to do it, but the specific idea of my craft), I picked the word (creative, I know), I picked the paper (probably the hardest part), the paint and splurged on modge podge. Who knew I'd someday own that stuff? I did all the work, made all the mistakes, and learned all the lessons.
What do you think? How'd I do on my color/pattern choices?
