Not Crafty

20 Mar

I am not a crafty person. There, I’ve said it. Occasionally I try, for a hot minute, before getting bored and quitting. Unfortunately, I have 24 hours to pull together my daughter’s Tae Kwon Do portfolio. I’ve neglected it for 2 and a half years and it must be caught up to date for pretesting tomorrow. I’ve printed out cutesy pages for pasting pictures and found the decorative scissors to cut. I really shouldn’t even be writing, but damn, I don’t want to do this. *sigh*

On a side note, T. Sue Versteeg’s short story is coming out today from Freya’s Bower. I’m too pumped!

    Scoop I had saved oodles of stuff for my oldest son’s scrapbook always meaning to start. I bought stuff to put it together, really cool scrapbooking stuff. Then a week before his high school graduation I realized that if I didn’t get started the damn thing wasn’t going to EVER get done.

    I finished. He likes it. I love it and don’t know if I’ll let him take it until he is married and settled. 🙂

    Oh, did I leave out the part where I stayed up the last 48 hrs straight to finish it? I just knew if it wasn’t done by his graduation I was never going to do it.

    Sometimes we all need a deadline to get us to finish something. Whatever you put together you and your daughter will be glad you did and it will be a cherished keepsake.

    Sorry to hear that. Like you, I’m not very crafty. I hope you can pull together the portfolio.

    Rosie- I’m pretty pathetic. The other moms are always snapping pics. It makes me feel negligent. I’ve got 5 rolls of undeveloped film from the last year and a half. My camera broke last graduation ceremony and I haven’t bought a replacement. For me, just having the pics. is good enough.

    I worked on it for 3 hours. During that time I created four pages. I organized the pages/awards and printed/punched the other pages needed. I’ve updated her attendance record too.

    Tempest- I’ve done all that I’m going to do (for now). Her instructor will probably fall over in shock that I’ve done something.
