I have never claimed to be coordinated. In fact, I often boast about my lack of skill, which really is pretty outstanding. But I think this well known fact about me is what caused my mama to start to giggle, as I scoured the aisles of the craft store for the perfect colors and supplies necessary to create my newest project. I have been just dying to make a rosette headband since I saw the idea on Pinterest, and thought, "Hey. I can do that!". As my mother chuckled, I smiled back in confidence, and picked out my
poison supplies. Well...that gesture of confidence obviously didn't consider the fact that I'd be needing to use little tiny beads, and skinny little thread, and super sharp needles to fashion the ultimate headband. But after a bit of wrestling, a few bandaged fingers, and a whole lot of squinting, Voila!
I now realize why coordinated people are more creative. It's not that people like myself aren't creative, it's just that showing off that spark usually causes us more physical harm than anything else. And most of the time, it turns out better in my mind. That's all.
Regardless, I was pretty proud about my little project.
So, thank you, Pinterest for
sore thumbs, headaches, and cute headbands!
