Look what I made. It's it's it's a
DR. SEUSS BLANKET!!!!!!
not intentionally meant to be that rippled...*sighs*
I see all these cute mommies with their etsy shops and think, one of these days I'll hit on something that is actually saleable!!
Guess I just haven't hit it. Yet.
I've made pottery (still have a closet filled with pots), I've painted -- and I enjoy crocheting. It's the "counting of stitches" that I have a problem with. But why let a "little thing" like that stand in the way of my creativity???
Counting aside, I've given many of these baby blankets as gifts and have received several messages about how much their kids love them. The most recent:
"I have been meaning to tell you, _____ LOVES that blanket you made. It is his "blankie." Whenever I take him out of the crib he grabs on to it, or if it is left in, he reaches through the railings to get it. Its so cute!"
Just warms my heart when someone actually likes something I've made for them. And luckily babies are not as discriminating as adults when it comes to "perfection."
One of these days I just may find something worthy to list in an etsy shop. Just you wait!!! Hopefully I won't be setting up the account while my bed pan is being emptied at the nursing home ;-)
What's something you enjoy doing that doesn't always turn out too stellar?
