Crafty, Crafty, I'm Sooooo not crafty.....
So, I've heard many times that having a hobby or something crafty to do with your hands is a great stress reliever. Now, I'm the first to admit the concept sounds soooo fun! I mean who wouldn't want to be able to delve into a ball of yarn and come up with something a human could actually use.
If it helps de-stress me, I'm all in. Put me in, Coach. Let's go!
I suck with anything crafty. If it's found in a Hobby Lobby, there's a high likelihood that a) I suck at doing it and b) humanity is better of if I don't even try.
But I'm still determined. There must be something out there even I, the everly constant incompetent one with all things craft could do.
So I figured maybe someone could recommend something. That said, there's something you should probably know about moi before offering a suggestion.
I was banned from sharp objects in college. Yeah. It was ugly. I was an overnight cashier at an HEB. One of our requirements was to take a box cutter, whack off the top of the box of plastic boxes, shove it under the register and repeat until the 2 or 3 cases of them were gone. Lather, rinse, repeat. Yeah. So not adept at the whacking thing. Apparently my brain sees something sharp and immediately thing go really, really wrong. Quick. It took one night. One night to get the grocery manager, assistant grocery manager and unit manager to all agree I had zero business with a box cutter. It was taken from me in a ceremony of shame and solemn disbelief filled with copious looks I read easily. I can't believe she's that incompetent with a box cutter.
So barring anything sharp like needles and those whos it whatsits used in knitting, anyone have any crafty ideas for me to explore? I'll try anything once or twice.
Have a marvelous day everyone. :) Under A Wolf Moon is now available for pre-order! AND...it's on sale for a limited time at $0.99!!!! Yay! I was thrilled to be a part of this wonderful paranormal wolf shifter anthology. My story in it, Hell's Playground, is the first in a new series titled The Rending.
