(You want to make someone's day? Jump to the top of their friend list? Earn yourself some serious karma points? Have a hot meal waiting for them when they arrive home from a trip. They'll be so grateful. They might even cry. And they'll be forever indebted to you - and it's always good to have one-up on someone.)So I'm busy, right? Which means I definitely don't have time to do a craft project. It's Sunday morning and all I wanted to do was check a few blogs, sip on some coffee, enjoy a few quiet moments before the inevitable rush of activity begins and goes non-stop through Friday. That's not too much to ask, is it? But noooo... I had to go looking at The Magic Onions blog, where she has this posted.
That must be some powerful magic onions mojo she's got going on, because those who know me best? They know that crafts and me go together like single men and babies. There's sort of this moment of pause where you're all "maybe this wouldn't be so bad....maybe I could do this too...." followed by a shudder and a rush of excuses and a full-out sprint in the other direction.
I didn't use fancy paper because I didn't trust myself to actually succeed at this endeavor on the first try.
I used plain old printer paper. If they turn out, I might feel brave enough to use some of that pretty scrapbooking paper I have stored away somewhere. The paper that I bought for the scrapbook I never work on. Or perhaps I'll even feel brave enough to dig out my watercolor paints or acrylics and decorate some paper myself. I mean, who cares about a silly old to-do list.
I'm the sort of person who owns all sorts of art and craft supplies. And has no clue what to do with them.
I have the urge to yell, "Mom! Look what I did!" How sad is that?
"MOM! LOOK WHAT I DID!"
Life's so much better when we just give in to our urges, isn't it?
Dear Magic Onions,
When my house comes crumbling down around me in chaos and mayhem, I'm blaming you.
