I will cut you!

Because a ton of people encouraged me to do it. 2 people = a ton in my mind.

There’s a reason why I don’t craft. Or pretend I’m crafty. I am 200% not a crafty person and its very rare when I have that desire to be crafty. I see all these sweet people who can make whatever their heart desires. Wreaths, head bands..and umm, other stuff. But this girl, <thumb jerking toward myself> is not one of those sweet people.

I could blame my mom…but I’m sure she wouldn’t appreciate it very much, but just know <said in whisper> its technically her fault.

I sent my mom a picture of my new and improved mantle and she loved it but said if there was 1 thing she would change it would be the stick thing because there was a lot of black and brown up there. Therefore suggesting a vase w/greens and reds shooting out of it. <or something like that>

Ah, good point mom. I will be the dutiful daughter that I am and listen to her wise ways in décor, because she knows what she’s talking about.

Off to Michaels I go. A store I never go in. Walking through every single aisle, I consider what the heck to put up there and fall upon peacock feathers.

Anyone that knows me, knows I’m not a feather person or would ever consider having feathers in my home. But I felt it was time to be different and I went with it. Wouldn’t you know, I didn’t have a vase right for the feathers..and not to mention, I didn’t buy enough feathers to make it appealing, but I persisted and washed, dried and used a clear vase.

Since anyone with eyes could clearly see the green thing you stab your stuff in (whatever it is) at the bottom, the vase needed to be covered. Enter my ribbon. Round and round it goes, looking more and more horrible but I continue because I lose all interest in caring.
At the end, I go to snip with my brand new scissors and –whoop. My right hand got all jealous of my left hand and yelled, ‘I WILL CUT YOU!’ and took its jealously out by snipping right into it.

I flung the scissors, flopped on the ground and wailed, “WHY GOD? WWHHHHHHY??!!

{ok, that’s not true.}

But I did gasp, stare at it for a good while until I realized I probably should get up and do something. So, I grabbed my phone to take a picture. (yes, I’m officially a blogger. I take pictures before tending to my wound.)
This just solidifies how much I shouldn’t create anything.

Now bring on the honesty. Which do you prefer? The feathers or the stick thingy?


Or stick thingy??
And yes, I did cover up G-man’s face in the picture. =)

And here’s my dining room, where I didn’t have to do any cutting!

You know I love you, momma!

Pin It Now!

I prefer the stick thingy... but that seems rather mean since you went to all that trouble with the feathers, and even got wounded ;) Love the dining room too, but I think you should definitely steer away from the crafts.

Love the dining room - very festive! And I think I prefer the stick thingy of the two, but like Natalie above, I feel bad for saying that after you shed blood for the feathers :)

Tabitha Lynn said...

Since you're already bandaged up, I think the stick thing too. But your dining room looks amazing. I love that tree!!!

It looks really great and you have the battle wounds to prove it! And the photos of course.

Stephanie said...

Oh my word...that's so sad, but everything looks beautiful! Crafting battle scars! ; )

Laura Elizabeth said...

I gotta agree with the others and say the stick thingy too! But I'm sure peacock feathers will come in use some other time... maybe for the next time crafting fever takes over your brain?

Sam {} said...

ooo, i love feathers!!! could you poke some of the feathers into the stick thingy? not sure if that would work. way to go on facing your fears with the crafting :)

Megan said...

I like the stick thing best, but I totally love peacock feathers, so I say you better use them somewhere!!

When does the post come about you stitching it up yourself?! ; )

Tatiana said...

Ouchy ouch ouch! Did you skip the lesson on how to use scissors in preschool? Well see, now that's what skipping class gets you. At least it was for a very good cause.
And guuuurrllll, LOVE that dinning room you've got going on. Know what I'm sayin' ?

LeAnna said...

I like it BOTH ways, not that it matters because you already took the peacock feathers back. Sorry I haven't been around much this week, it's been crazy nutso.
That picture of your wound is gross, and I'm going to pin it to my It Never Should Have Been board on Pinterest. HAHAHA. Just kidding. Sorry you wounded yourself, but it's the nature of the sport we call Crafting.
I love that you put a piece of paper in front of G's face. You're a good and sweet girlfriend! Brownie points! Gold stars! Bravo!
Have a great weekend, sista.
