And I do have some.
My sister-in-law, Chelsea, just did a post about her one skill. She was talking about french braiding hair. I pointed out to her that really she has at least two skills since she also makes beautiful babies. Sometimes I think that's my one skill- beautiful babies. Because, as shown last night, sewing is certainly NOT one of my skills - yet. I tried to make a reversible belt which basically only required sewing two ribbons together and still managed to ruin it. In the picture below you can see where my seam got a little ... shall we say... off. Oh well. I solved the problem by turning it into a non-reversible toddler-sized belt (which you can now buy on Chic Made).Speaking of Chic Made, I just added a really cool thing - chalkboard napkin rings! Go check them out.
But there's always beading. Although I don't know if that's a skill or just an obsession. This morning Ruthie emerged from her basement bedroom/cave in a beautiful purple shirt. I love to watch what Ruthie is wearing in the mornings because she dresses all chic like I think I used to. You know, back in the day when I went somewhere other than the grocery store or Target and nobody drooled on me or poked me in the back with a macaroni-filled spoon. ... sorry, a little tangent about dinner tonight started there... Anyway. Ruthie looked fab - as always. But it just so happened that the shirt she was wearing was an exact match to some new beads I had just gotten the day before. So I whipped up some matching earrings for her in the time it took her to make a sandwich! I think that's the coolest thing ever to be able to do! I know, I know, you're getting tired of hearing about how fabulous beading is... but I reeeeaaaalllllyyyyy love it!
I'd better make a matching necklace to go with those earrings next!
