I have some published work coming up soon, and I have a few buyers’ guides waiting in the wings. But I have a huge backlog of crappy crafts — posts I haven’t done, because I didn’t want this blog to be a craft blog.
So I started a craft blog.
I love to craft. I already spend time scrapbooking and writing, so crafting things for my kids is another creative outlet for me.
Here’s the problem. I can’t sew. I’m clumsy. I’m cheap. I’m impatient. My projects never come out looking picture-perfect. They are not much to brag about.
So why would I post them? Because I spend hours on Pinterest scouring for ideas I can use for the kids. It takes a while to find inspiration, and then I have to modify it to my skill level.
The thing is, when I figure it out, my children love the end result. I don’t have to be perfect– I just have to care. This blog is for all of us — the imperfect, the hapless, the uncoordinated. They are still good ideas! Make something out of it!
