Before Christmas, I go hyper-crafting. dh’s family calls it smelting, after the infamous SNL sketch with Victoria Jackson and Paul Simon, Desert Island Christmas. After about 24 hours of crafting, I now present you Crafting: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.
The good includes quick projects that I made for the kids.
The bad includes the local supply store carrying merchandise for Valentine’s Day before Christmas even arrives. I tweeted about it and then tweeted again about what is not pictured below, on the other end of the aisle — the one with St. Patrick’s Day merchandise. I kid you not. I want to enjoy the current season, thank you. Keep that stuff away until the month before, please.
The ugly includes injuries to my fingers. And to my dh’s finger, too. I have cuts all over my thumb and index finger, meaning little flaps of skin snagging on everything I brush. Ow. But no photo — it just doesn’t show up well.
