craftiness

My mom is all kinds of inspiring to me. She is so busy doing cool stuff, which makes me realize how completely lame I am. Here are some of the crafty things she inspired me to do (or finish) while she was here:


A copy of a Monet for my brotherBlack apple dolls (pattern on marthastewart.com)

Purple version of the pink skirt I made earlier for the birthday girl's sister. My head is cut off because I am giving Ben the most awesome face right now. He got some pretty scary secret video footage moments before this. If I'm ever a celeb my street cred will go right out the window if this video gets leaked.

Oh my dear! Your painting is amazing! You inspired me to sit down at the easle again tonight! I really want to see it in person if you haven't shipped it out. You need to teach me to do some landscape stuff. I love the dolls--another lesson for me . . . and the skirt looks adorable. I want to make one for my sister's baby if she is having a girl . . . I'll tell you my idea with that soon. I have to see the painting more though--I could learn soooo much from you!

I am SPEECHLESS. There is no way one single person can have that much talent. Good grief! I am so impressed I'm almost freaked out! Daaaang.

you inspire me! i am so going to try the dolls but im sure they wont turn out half as cool as yours. And the skirt i HAVE to learn how. I saw some little tiny ones in a store but they wanted like 50 bucks for it. you could make lots of money selling those. you may be a celeb after all. better hide that video good. :)

Stephanie J. Robertson said...

I wish we lived closer so you could help me be crafty. I attempt but it doesn't really work so well. I never knew you were such a good painter. It is amazing!

Melissa said...

oh yeah, you rock. it's nice to have accomplished so much coolness, i bet.

Yes, I accomplish all my coolness for the year in a span of 2 weeks. It's all downhill from here until my mom visits again.
