"Man! I am going to get so much scrapbooking done. And I'm going to learn how to knit and crochet! There is going to be so much craftiness going on in my house, Kyle will think he died and landed in Martha Stewart Hell as punishment for not getting snipped like his wife told him to."
Sadly, this is not the case.
I believe that I have scrapbooked less than a handful of times since being a full time mom/housemaid. Forget about my hopes of learning how to crochet.
However, I did bust out my brand new sewing machine for the first time. Can I get a WHAT WHAT?!
Oh wait! Don't tell my mom that though. She bought the machine as my Xmas present TWO YEARS AGO. She might be a tad annoyed that it is just now seeing the light of day.
And what project did I work on you ask? What a great question! A stocking for a friend.
Now, I've made approximately ten stockings in my lifetime before this one. And when compared to the others, this one looks like Megan Fox standing next to ten Mimi's from the Drew Carey Show. This judgement may be a little harsh, but do know that I plan on remaking our family stockings this year. And this time, I'm leaving the hellish burlap on the shelf.
I'm also toying with the idea of making some extra's as well. Maybe sell them, or perhaps give them away as gifts this year. What do you think?
