I have never been a crafty person. EVER.
Honestly I can barely draw stick people that don’t look like, well, sticks.
I dread the school projects that my children will inevitably want my help with.
I have never learned how to knit, sew or scrapbook.
However, since signing up for a Pinterest account, I feel a creativity gene has sprung up from the deep recesses of my not-so-creative soul.
I WANT TO BE CRAFTY.
Yep, I’m just putting it out there. I am going to try stretching myself to see if there is any possibiity that I actually can do some of things that I would never dreamed I could do.
Here is my one of my first projects…I bought this lamp at our thrift store for $5. It was truly ugly, sort of a faux wood-ish multi-colored monstrosity. But I wondered what would happen if I painted the lamp and the shade….
(perhaps I should also point out that I am not a photographer, but I think you’ll be able to figure that out all on your own.)
What do you think? Is there hope for me and my new-found crafty gene?
