Thank you to Alanna (private blog) who grouped me among other "insanely talented" crafty ladies she knows. What Alanna doesn't know is that my Young Women's leaders would never believe her. I was the teenage girl totally opposed to making all the craft projects they insisted we make. Or, better yet, tricking them into doing my craft for me. (Seriously, who is good at tole painting eyes on wooden bunnies?!?) But possibly, this was because crafts in the mid 1990s consisted of potpourri and tole painting. Bleh. Or, better yet, baking so we could attract a nice husband when we got to college. So thank you Alanna. I never would have thought of myself as a crafty person either. I didn't even really learn to sew until I was pregnant with my second kid, so, 6+ years ago now. And I am still terrified of a lot of craft projects out there (like quilting... I would LOVE to quilt, but it terrifies me), but I guess I have become a little bit crafty as I've grown up.
