Day 2 – Share something you made – it can be a craft, a recipe, your latest DIY attempt, your babies, a home remedy or even you local community group. Interpret any way you like!
Confession time – I have a blog but I am really, really rubbish at crafting.
This kind of makes me feel like I am breaking the law or something!
I browse blog after blog showing handcrafts from super talented people. I admire their clever cross stitching, amazing hand sewn clothes and beautifully crafted crochet. I then get lifestyle envy. I wish I had the time, skills and spare cash to make something pretty. I wish I was clever at crafts. If only I could make Rob a crocheted hat shaped like a strawberry. Im sure he would love it and want to wear it all the time.
I am useless at making things. And I am a realist. I think its best that I stay an appreciator of other peoples talents rather than attempt my creations! My attempts all fall apart and look like a 5 year old has made them! I do love creativity though, I love art, interiors, street art and anything well designed.
One thing I enjoy is cake decorating. I cannot claim to be amazing at sugar craft, but I have been on a course and I can ice a fairly decent cupcake if the need arises.
It was great fun! It was like being a kid again playing with Playdough for 2 hours! Mum and I were the naughty kids at the back of the class with the giggles who kept dropping things on the floor (you can’t take us anywhere!)
Nah, probably not!
My cakes got a little squashed on the way home! All photos by Rob.
