Crafts that make you go hmmm...

I know that my job is "crafty". I don't mind being called that. I paint, I sew, etc. - so it fits.

I do not like it when people say, "Are you still running your craft business?"

It sounds like they think I'm sitting around with my glue gun putting pom-poms on toilet paper tubes.
(Let's be honest if they would sell - bring on the pom -poms....)

So, instead of refurbished furniture or painted canvases, here are some crafts you will never see me make.

A bracelet from a shirt cuff and ugly buttons.
Goes great with mom jeans.

I don't even know what to say about this.

I guess they would rather use the glove to hold the flowers than wear it to wash the vase.

Yes. You read that correctly.


I shudder to think what all those little bits and pieces in the paper are.

My grandmother always put her dryer lint in the backyard "so birds could use it to make nests."

Was she crazy too?

I've never worn a tie, but I'm pretty sure this is a bad idea.

I don't think taking a client out to lunch, and pulling your Visa from your tie would be that impressive to the other guy.

"You like this? My wife is into crafts."

I remember these. They used to be wearing crocheted dresses. My friend Candy received one once for a gift when she first got married.

Does that make the little old lady that made it a 'Modern Surrealist?"

  2. Oh my goodness! Those are hilarious. Thanks for sharing. I needed a laugh!

  3. What? You don't want that nice glove-in-vase sitting around your house? It would make a lovely addition to the table at a dinner party.

  4. This post is hilarious! I actually laughed out loud with the glove as a flower holder. Thanks for the laugh today! I am sincerely enjoying your blog. :)
