MY LIFE Day 10
I am not crafty, and this has nothing to do with the Beasty Boys classic song from the 1980s.
I am horrible at all things involving glue guns, all materials that can be found at Michaels and school projects such as dioramas, volcanoes and paper maiche.
My sorority sisters will attest that I never got the hang on how exactly to puffy paint and my living skills teacher gave me a pass on my sewing project in the 7th grade out of desperation.
However, I do love those paint and drink wine Mommy night events everyone was into a few years ago. Mostly for the fun conversation and an excuse to do something different than hang out at a crowded restaurant.
The same places would also hold kids birthday parties during the day.
One time, my daughter and I had the same painting- I will let you guess which one looked more like the clown the instructor was guiding on and which one looked like modern art….
As bad as the final product might look, I do really enjoy the process and find it relaxing.
I enjoy an adult coloring book on Sunday night to set the tone for my week or even painting pottery on vacation for an ugly mug my husband will reluctantly drink out of for the next couple of years.
There is something very calming and zen like while I am in that creative space, just don’t look too closely at the final product please ??♀️
