My little sister and I are separated by 10 years in age.
When we were younger, it seemed like a HUGE gap, but now that she is married with children, the gap seems so much smaller.
Except when I think about her as a baby and kindergartner……. and then I have to remind myself that she’s a grown up now.
Anyway, I can honestly tell you that based on her interests (that I knew about) growing up, I would have never guessed that she’d grow up to be the crafting genius that she has become.
And when I say that she is a crafting genius, I really mean it. She can take just about anything crafty and turn it into the cutest darn masterpiece ever. She’s particularly gifted with paper, and I LOVE it when her creations are given to me. Did I mention that she’s a canning maniac as well (and I mean that in a good way)?
Her birthday gift to me arrived in the mail today and I basically squealed in delight when I saw it. Handmade apron. Check. Handmade card. Check. Handmade card holder in the shape of a purse. Check.
I DELIGHT in handmade articles and wish I had an ounce of the talent she and my older sister have. It just isn’t fair that the crafting genius gene was with held from me. Yes. I am bitter. 🙂
Jen over at Buried with Children has a new Friday carnival called Kids make the Darnest Things. Since I still think of my kid sister as a kid occasionally, this counts, right?
Oh, my crafting genius sister also sells Stampin’ Up. If you are in need of supplies or even a little inspiration, be sure to check with her!
