As you may know from previous posts, I am not a craft person. When I read this over at Boomama's I laughed until I cried. And I quote "I write a lot more than I used to, and it seems like between cooking and cleaning (don’t you even laugh, David. don’t you EVEN laugh), chasing Alex, working, blogging, wife-ing, etc., reading is the thing that gets pushed back farthest on the burner. (To clarify: reading has not been pushed back as far as, you know, crafts, but those were never really on the burner for me to begin with. Come to think of it, crafts were nowhere even remotely near the burner. In fact, I think that for me, at least, crafts are currently located somewhere just southeast of Idaho.)"
Yep, that's been my personal experience with crafts in my lifetime. However, God has seen fit to change that. God wants me to Scrapbook! How do I know this? Because someone I do not even know sent me, my mom and my sister and all our kids a whole bunch of Creative Memories scrapbook "stuff". I'm guessing several hundred dollar's worth. I got a type of briefcase and a big scrapbook and a Memory chest and square maker and a memory locker. I am pretty sure that most of you know what all this stuff is and is for. Its going to take me a while to process all of it!
So, Penny, Thank you! Who knows, maybe someday I'll even finish my kids baby books!
