Because Being Crafty Is Not the Same As Being Spiderman
The creatively impaired assume that the only way to ever make pretty things is to be bitten by a radioactive crafting spider and start shooting macrame from our wrists. Sadly, Martha Stewart has all the crafting spiders in captivity, so that option is out. What's a regular person to do?
The answer is just as cheesy as it is true:
If you tell yourself you can't make pretty things, then you'll never make pretty things.
Sure, some people are naturally gifted at making trash worthy to grace a magazine cover, but I believe that every person is capable of creativity no matter the skill level. I believe this because I am woefully uncrafty and still think it's important and, dare I say, fun.
Engaging with lazy genius crafters like The Nester and my friends Megan and Addie has taught me that skill doesn't matter. Just do it. I mean, those women are mad skilled, but they inspire me because they don't take things too seriously. If what you make sucks and you never use the thing, that doesn't mean it was a waste of time or you're a waste of a crafter. The end result doesn't matter so much as the choice to be a maker.
So make your choice, my friends, and we'll have some fun.
