Today I woke up and initially felt great. Then I remembered what happened yesterday. Two Craft Fails. Crumpled brow ensues. TWO! Not only did I have two craft projects fail I had videoed to the end of each one and had to trash everything after neither one worked. Right at the end!! More eyebrow crumpling. I went to my craft room right after I got out of bed and instead of feeling inspired, I groaned. GROANED! True, I mostly groaned because there was glitter everywhere (like Tinkerbell threw up). I hate cleaning up glitter! Now I have to clean up just so I can go in there and get crafty again. Touching between eyebrows to see if lines are permanent.
I came downstairs and flung myself dramatically into my Half Craft chair. (The Half Craft is the office I share with my husband. See here.) I sighed and whined told SuperDH about my crafty fails and you know what he said? That sounds like a post. You should write about how you have things not work out. Hmmm, good idea. I know I often share things that don’t turn out as I expected, but I am still able to use. However, sometimes I have such an epic fail that only the garbage can appreciates my efforts. Seriously, am I feeling a line? Should I keep a mirror on my desk?
I’ve decided to pull myself together, crawl out of my Half Craft chair, heat up my coffee and tackle the glitter vomit. Then I will sit there and force myself to be crafty do my nails since they look like I should start wearing gloves year round. My next course of action? I’m going to start with something simple, right out of a Cricut booklet. If I start feeling adventurous I’ll begin embellishing whatever I make. If I don’t, I’ll have a simple cut and will at least be back in the game. 😉 I wonder if Zip Dry could serve as a line filler in case I’m really feeling a crumpled brow line. What? Zip Dry? I’m feeling craftier already!!
