I can't help it, I disagree. There are a lot of great things to do. And I do a lot of those things. But if I didn't do something that I enjoyed every once in a while, I would go crazy! So, I've decided that for the dissenters, craftiness IS an option. But for me, craftiness IS NOT an option. I mean, it's not like I do it 24/7. Just in spurts. Like now, I'm on one of those spurts.
I have been wanting some milk glass vases for my computer room, but when I went searching for milk glass I found that it was expensive. I mean, really expensive.
So when I found this tutorial, I thought, hmmm... Then I found a couple more and it really got me going.
Off I went to Goodwill to find some vases.
Check. And they were only $2.50. WAY cheaper than milk glass.
I already had some white acrylic paint, so after figuring out how much water to add, I got this...
And I really like how they look with my super cute lamp.
See, I'm saving money. Another good thing about crafting. Crafting is awesome!
But, I feel I should show you my failure at craftiness. As I said before, crafting is relaxing to me, except if it's sewing. I am bound and determined to like sewing, but I haven't gotten there yet. Mostly it's just annoying. I don't know what I was thinking when I took on this next project.
I found this tutorial on how to make a case for your camera. We needed a case for our GPS, so I thought, "Hey, I can do that. It can't be that hard."
Yeah, I know, I think I'm delusional too.
So, I made a GPS case.
This is so embarrassing.
You may not be able to tell from the picture, but the GPS doesn't really fit into the case. A key component to a case, if you ask me. The strap that keeps the GPS in the case is crooked. And, I know you really can't see this, but I originally put the velcro in the wrong place. Awesome.
I guess it's better than nothing, but not much. Needless to say, I will not be making one for our camera.
But it was basically free because I already had all the stuff for it. Well, I take that back, I had to get the velcro so it cost like a dollar.
Crafting is not my life. But I do enjoy it and I'm not going to feel guilty for enjoying it. As long as I get the rest of my list done, I'm good.
