Being Crafty

I wish I was crafty. Not in the sneaky-not-necessarily-trustworthy way but in the look-what-I-just-did-with-twine-glue-and-a-blow-dryer way. It never used to bother me but as I have become more and more of a blog reader (more on that another time) I see all kinds of stuff like this

found on ehow- google it if you MUST make these but don't come back and brag about it

 and this

 I don’t know about you but for me it brings on one of my Oprah moments- the ones where I am simultaneously depressed and ready for a nap. I wish I saw possibility in every item around me but for me it's just a toothpick, kleenex box, cheese grater.

The only time I avoid this is when it comes to art. Namely because I have already proven myself as an artist and chose writing instead. So when I saw these charming, whimsical votives I knew I had to share.

It helps that I think Michelle Armas is wonderfully talented and I wish I had a job so I could buy a piece of her work. And she is damn funny so, really I should hate her. Plus, she’s young. Seriously…why don’t I hate her?

Maybe because she can do this...

They are so pretty.

I always feel I can do things, playing the piano for instance, I FEEL I can just sit at the stool and play! Sadly, for some reason it's never as easy as it is in my imagination.

Well, I'll just plod on with my glitter glue and pipe cleaners, it's not often Art but it is often fun.

I feel the same way about all the amazing DIYers that have blogs. I wish I could do that stuff myself. Your paiting is fantastic (wish I could do that too).

And yes, the pink lemon does taste just like a regular lemon, but prettier:)
