Crafting in Chaos

Crafting had never been a passion of mine.  However, I understand the value of creativity  and getting hands-on experience.  When the boys were young, we would play kids’ songs and bring out the craft supplies.  It was often a chaotic mess.  Creative, but chaotic.  There was that time when my youngest son became frustrated because something wouldn’t stick to a styrofoam ball.  I tried to help him and quickly became frustrated, too.  Determined to make that feather or foam letter or whatever it was, stick to that %$&@ ball, I resorted to Super Glue.  Of course I applied the Super Glue, not my pre-schooler!  I mean, what kind of mother do you think I am?

Soon, my son was frustrated again.  It appeared that the Super Glued styrofoam ball had stuck to his t-shirt.  Never fear son, Super Mom is here!  I gave it a yank.  Then, my son yowled like a cat with its tail slammed in a door.  Apparently, the Super Glued ball not only stuck to his t-shirt … but also to the skin on his chest.

Fast-, really fast-, forward several years.  I now enjoy making (or attempting) some craft projects.  The chaos factor still remains.  DSC_1041 DSC_1043 DSC_1045

    I like to craft, but I find I do less of it these days. The question is, does your son attempt crafts now?? Lol

  2. Ah yes.. cats love crafts too! c

  3. I can’t remember Pretty Kitty’s name but I’d like to see his art work. Is that gray tabby his Momma? I love Pretty Kitty. I’m a serious paper crafter. Been addicted since the early 90’s and we won’t even talk about what I’ve spent on supplies…

    • The gray tabby is a male and not related to Bubbles, the fluffy princess. I have been experimenting with transferring my photos to wood. It’s enjoyable when I’m not frustrated by it. 😉 I’ll show some pictures soon.

    I think we all have some crafting horror stories in our history. And cats will ALWAYS be right smack dab in the middle of whatever project (or homework) is in progress!

    Hey – great discovery finding your blog! Love the super glue story. Bwa-ha-ha! Bet your son doesn’t use super glue ‘lightly’ even as an adult! 😉

    I see you have plenty of helpers there to hand you things. I hope you don’t glue them to the desk! LOL

    Now that looks like quite a mess waiting to happen. 🙂 Our clumsy Mr. Fabulous would soon make a disaster out of that table.
