Before I went back to school, one of my favorite things to do was to craft. I have to tell you. It's taken me many years to even get remotely good. My sewing projects are not very beautiful and the girls would only wear the dresses I made them outside.
In the sandbox.
But - slowly and surely - I get better.
I'm not sure what appeals to me about crafting so much - maybe it's the pioneer feel to it. Maybe it's because I loved the things my grandma made for me.
I think I mentioned that my grandma taught me how to crochet. I've made plenty of afgans, bags, and doilies in my time. They weren't always the most beautiful creations in the world - and this is why I call it Crapft. My mom has the first pot holder I crocheted in an old box filled with all of her important papers - it's pretty lopsided.
I won't show you the crapft I made - it's so embarrassing.
But - I am rather proud of this
