Express Yourself - Hobbies, Talents, Crafty
This week Jackie and I are asking: What is something crafty / handy you do or wish you did?
I don't know if it's a popular thing but Jackie and I used to do monthly meetings with some of our family members under the unbrella company of Stampin' Up. It's a scrapbooking and crafting group. We had a blast making things like scrapbooking pages, picture frames, invites, keepsake box, etc. Our group has since disbanded but in a few weeks a couple of us are getting together to make wreaths and then next month we are all getting together to make holiday wreaths.
On a side note: I used to work with Jackie at her flower shop and made floral arrangements which I consider pretty crafty since I had never done it before and Jackie was the perfect teacher!
I also design all of my own tattoos. Jackie & I drew up our matching foot tats. (Saying in ribbon: Vous inspire' celui-ci (You inspire this one)) The ribbon and saying come from a book series... can you guess which one? I have a sketch book full of drawings and sketches of my brother and husband and family members, more tat ideas, sceneries, etc.
Let me brag about Jackie for a second since I know a few of her talents... she has an eye for the perfect floral arrangement. When it came to Stampin' Up she could throw colors together like nobody's business and it came out amazing. She is a wonderful author who can make you fall in love with her writing. She's a bowler and can bowl me under the rug any day. And if being a patient mamma and wife is a talent, she's got that in the bag! She's a pretty forgiving and amazing friend too.
What are you talents, hobbies, etc? Please share!
Have an awesome Monday!!
