The topic: I am not a crafty person


I used to be a crafty person.  I could sew and do needlepoint and crochet and paint murals on walls and all sorts of cool, crafty stuff.  And somewhere along the way, that talent went away, or maybe just atrophied.

Anyway, I got this brilliant idea to make something crafty for the goody bags this coming October.  I can’t say exactly what I’m crafting, because many of the fine people who go in October, read this blog.  (So, neener, neener, neener.)

Well, I had the major portion of what I was doing laid out.  I’d move it when I had to, so that the cats didn’t mess all that hard work up.  This was fine for a couple of days, no problems.  Then, Ross decides he is going to jump on the coffeetable and he hit the area I had it set up. What a mess.  An hour later I was back in business.  I had one item all arranged and ready to go.  I set it down when I had to get up and when I got back, I picked up the wrong end of what I’d set down and it all fell apart.  *sigh*

I finally got one out of fourteen done.

Another thing that is bugging me is the supplies.  I started this particular craft over a year ago.  I had some supplies for it and I’ll be damned if I can find them anywhere.  I don’t know how much time I’ve spent looking for them.  I even cleaned out the hallway closet yesterday thinking maybe I’d put them in there.  Nope. 

Oh, well, I’ll just buy more. And when we move, I bet I find my missing supplies.

A crafty person wouldn’t lose her supplies.

Yes she would!

A real crafty person would just say she doesn’t have enough of said supplies left and must run to get more. I can’t tell you how many craft supplies I have duplicated becasue I couldn’t find the first set. You will find them as soon as you replace them. It’s a law somewhere.

And then there are the ones you never do find.  I suspect that the little ghosts of kitties who have gone to the Bridge are playing tricks on their humans.

Have you looked in the closet/pantry nearest to the kitchen?

Just an idea

Bobbie, that’s almost scary.  I do have some craft stuff in the pantry next to the kitchen. It’s in the laundry room.

And in the closet closest to the kitchen, I have my candlemaking equipment and supplies in the bottom.  The next closet has a bucket full of magnetic letters and numbers because I like to play with them on the whiteboard in the laundry room. 

I ran to the laundry room and looked in the bucket, thinking maybe when the petsitter was here last year, I’d mentioned this stuff to her for her daughter to play with, but alas, it wasn’t to be found.

Great guess, though.
