Craftiness is one of my delusions.
I’ve had a lot of excuses for not being crafty over the years.
A few were:
- It’s hard to start a project when there is no guarantee of uninterrupted time to finish it.
- It’s difficult to browse a craft store with a child along who wants to do every project that he/she sees displayed on an end-cap. (Or who resists going into the store at all.)
- I can’t justify spending the money on supplies for a project that I’m not sure I’ll actually complete.
Numbers one and two are legit and might change once the kids are all in school.
But number 3? Mmmmm, I probably need to start small. Prove to myself that I will complete a few things for which I ALREADY have the supplies before I run out and load up on stuff for a new project.
Because I don’t think I can lay all of the blame for my unfinished projects on my kids.
