Don't Hate Me

Really crafty people make me throw up a little, I get jealous, how do they find the time, who do they copy... what ? People have original crafting ideas. Now that really bugs!

Today I got crafty! What can I say? Please Don't hate me!

Aren't these amazing. They say no two are alike. No of course I didn't make them! I said I got CRAfTy not CrAZy!

These are mine! I can do nearly anything with a hot glue gun, including making left over candy canes into adorable valentines hearts for my treat tree.

This is the treat tree, it is a favorite of friends and neighbor kids during the holidays. It's debuting as a winter/Valentines day tree this year. Try not to be too jealous of my cleverness and the crocheted Mr. and Mrs. Frosty made for me by Adorable Hubbies Grandma, and the winter tree I concocted by not taking off any ornaments that weren't specifically Christmas.

Also ignore those tubs of Christmas Decorations that STILL aren't put away because in my efforts to reduce the bulkiness and clutter in my decoration boxes I became infected with seasonaltreeitis which my doctor assures me will be cured as soon as all the candy cane hearts are eaten and I have to think up ornaments for a new season.

Ohhhh...I know EXACTLY what you mean. Those "look what I can make - ALL THE TIME" blogs. HATE 'EM! There's a lady who I visit occasionally and each day she posts pictures of her latest creations and her wonderful craft room and while she's the sweetest thing, I get just a wee bit disgusted with the whole.....look at what I can do, I have an endless supply of money AND time to do all this, oh, and whip up delicious meals each night and blah, blah, blah. Seriously!? I guess there are women out there like that but do they have to shove it in everyone else's faces!? Gag.

you know what....why don't "these women" post some pictures of serving someone else??? Do they ever think about someone else? Do they do any of that!? Ok, sorry. I'll get off my high horse now. It just drives me crazy.

Look at you and your crafty-ness! Yeah, crafty is NOT a word someone would use to describe me. Sad, but true.

Your trees are adorable!!

WOW!!!!! CRRRAFFTY. I've always loved that tall skinny tree. Maybe I should exchange my Cactus for one. KIDDING! But I do Love that tree.

Ooh-a treat tree. That sounds fun:)

Suz said...

Wow, I am impressed at how crafty you are. He when you run out of candy canes I have some extra. They are bubble gum ones, hot pink!

Are the candy canes mint or just calm, mild sugary treats? If not mint, I'll be right over.

Hee hee! I like you.

Those are super cute! I'm impressed! I'm also jealous that you get to leave up your tree for awhile. My still-there Christmasy tree is just sad now.

If you need more you can have the kiddy-crack canes that I flogged off my kids this year.

My tree is still up and still very much screaming CHRISTMAS. So is the wreath still hanging on my door. I almost put Lion in a Christmas shirt today. I made the darned things and they wore them half a dozen times... I don't get my craft on all that often, I hate to see it wasted!

Love your treat tree, and your winter tree. I even love your plastic crates! Because if your post was all about how perfect you are with your fancy trees and craftiness and all then I would have to just stop reading... so thank you for leaving in your plastic crated imperfections ;)
