Some linky love

I was reading Planet Nomad and oh, let me quote her here:

"How on earth did I get a daughter who likes to sew, to knit, to crochet,
to make things? I absolutely hate doing crafts. The mere thought of scrap
booking makes me break out in hives. (Seriously, they’re not zits) I’ve learned to knit at least 5 different times, I add and drop stitches with wild abandon and have huge gaping holes in my handicrafts. Why on earth would someone want to do stuff like that when they could be reading?

Do you know where crafts come from? Satan. I’m not making that up. I’m
going to quote an actual verse here, from Genesis. “Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast.” Yep. THAT serpent, the one that tempted Eve. So I feel quite justified in my feelings"



I laugh because I am a non-crafty person myself. Not that I'd break
into hives. But I'd rather be reading too . . .

But really almost anytime I enjoy reading Planet Nomad. Go take a peek.

Okay, this made me laugh really hard for about ten minutes. :)

Ah man...ths reminds me...my sewing machine is in my kitchen cabinet! My husband put it there when he was organizing the kitchen and removed the 'sewing table' from the kitchen and left the sewing machine...in the cabinet. He laughs when people ask if I know how to sew. Whats more more sad is that my own mother says I should go ahead and put it in the garage for the time being. But I think she understands that I just don't have the time, cause I've got 4 kids and work full time. So there! Thats why it's in the cabinet!

You are so funny! I actually love crafts, although I am really not good at them. I just enjoy getting my hands dirty and just making things. Good times!

Happy New Year to you!
