I love crafts. I love all kinds of crafts. I love to try my hand at all things crafty. There’s only one problem, I’m no good at any of them. It’s a serious problem. I agree to do these swapy things on IG (amandamoring), but then I fail at everything I try. I mean, it’s like a bad string of Pinterest fails. I have the best intentions, and my heart is totally in it, but *cringe* *hangs head* *hides behind furniture* it’s bad.

I do FINE with the things where I have to buy stuff, like mugs, but it’s the making of the things where I fail. The things I make looks like I accidentally dropped them out of a plane, went and retrieved them from the carnage, and then still gave them as gifts. I swear to you, I try so hard!!

So here is my delima: I have to make seven “Unbirthday” gifts for random people I don’t know. At this point, that’s one a month. I was thinking about those tile coasters that have swirly paint, but I forget how to make them, and is that lame? I was also thinking about premade canvas carryall bags with “Happy Unbirthday” stenciled on. I have a vague idea of how to do this from a friend, but I’m afraid it will look like a two year old did it.

See, I can’t even design a good picture!

I wish I had a freaking Cricuit machine! I’d make Unbirthday shirts and mugs … batta-bing batta-boom. But, NO! That would be too easy. I do have a sewing machine, and can sew a straight line. A also have a crap-ton of yarn. I can make finger infinity scarves, but I’m afraid that is too basic. I wish I could draw. I’d make canvas art for them. If I could hand-letter, I could make some cool acrostic thing.

It is a simple contraption of beauty.

Hey, Cricuit! Want to sponsor me? I’d be happy to make one craft a week using your product!! *smile* It could show how the non-crafty craft enthusiast can make cool things without much talent!

Shoot, I just went to their website. Now I want all the Cricuit things! Ugh. It sucks not having the money to do fun things. See, this why I have to get this blog bigger … SPONSORS!
Okay, please, if you have any ideas for Unbirthday, handmade, legit, good gifts, please comment below. πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ If not, I’ll still love you, but it will make my life complicated. I’ll have to think *gasp*. We wouldn’t want that, now!

Be kind to each other. Pass on Random Acts of Kindness. Make life full of love, not hate.

    I’m not him. I just know him, and he told me he knows EVERYTHING.

    Nope, I’ve never met him, but I know he knows EVERYTHING!

  2. I have an idea!
    What abt going old school? My mom n dad still gave a tiny needlestitch I did that says I love you mom ect on it, with a tiny little wooden frame around it. (But u can find them still at michaels or hobby lobby w/fun quotes n stuff on them, n for maybe $3 n comes w/thread ect)
    The awesome part abt doing it, is it’s already stamped and u can’t screw it up πŸ™‚ just make your “x” (cross cross) in the box n ur done!! Plus it will help w/coordination n building new pathways in ur brain!
    I feel the same way abt crafts as u do friend, seems like my older sisters got all the craft genes n I can barely draw a stick figure lol!
    Just an idea, but It wld b a neat project that can help u kill two birds with one stone! N remember, u can always use a magnifying glass if ur worried abt ur eyes ect….I say it’s worth getting one n trying it! πŸ™‚ love u!!!

  3. How well do you “not” know these people?
    There are so many things you can do.
    Rocks painted with words of great quotes (1 word per rock) on a bowl with a candle.
    Bracelets made from washers, and so much more

    1. I can’t even visualize what you’re talking about. LOL!! I have been talking with them on Instagram since about July. I have never met them in person, but we have a “group” that chats all the time on IG. 😁
