Me, crafty?

Michael's craft store opened this week, and I am so happy. I have never really considered myself a crafty or creative person. Due largely in part to my bad break up with scrap booking a few years ago. It just made me feel inadequate. But, I may have to re-evalute my relationship with crafting in general. We could have a future.

I didn't have a spring decoration for my front door and had been looking for one that I liked for the last couple of years. I could never find anything that I liked in a price range I would go for (I'm super cheap...no I'm thrifty;).
Anyhow thanks to Michael's I made my very own spring wreath for about five dollars! It's so me, and I love it! Michael's moving to town could very well be the beginning of a beautiful relationship for me and crafting.

look at my big sis getting all crafty... I myself have picked up knitting...and I will not get bored or frusterated(ok, maybe the later) and quit.. scrapbooking has always felt futile to me.. I don't know why. When I actually finish a project, I will post it.. I am working on 2 bags and fingerless gloves.

I love the wreath! What a cute idea! I think you are craftier than you give yourself credit for!
