I love all the creativity on the internet, but I am aware of my shortcomings that prohibit execution of all but the most basic, inexpensive and quick craft projects. The key limitations would be:
1. Tiny hands continuously shaking from the iced tea/cola/latte monkey on my back…
2. 100% of available patience is applied to parenting one bright and well-behaved 7-year old. Yes, that’s all I have. Patience is not one of my virtues…
So, I am crafty-not artistic, but the resourceful kind. I leave the actual creativity to others whose work elicits audible comments as I surf and pin to my palpitating heart’s content. I hope you’ll save some time and/or cash. You can say you used your own two hands and bask in the compliments!
