I Am Craft Challenged

Posted on Updated on

But when I look at Pinterest with its glowing, sparkly pins, I succumb to the delusion that I, too, can make these lovely, wonderful things that will change my world. I pin them to my imaginary, cyber bulletin board and tell myself that one day, I will try that thing, when I have enough time and if I have enough courage.

This summer is that time.

Armed with my trusty side-kick (my 15-year-old daughter, Cat) who can actually do crafty things, we will conquer my Pinterest boards. Baking, cooking, crafting, building, beauty: we’re going after you.

July 1, 2013 we’re going pin-crazy and we’ll post our results here, no matter how ugly they get.
