Ladies and gentlemen Jim (Hi honey! I bet you are the only male reading my blog). It has happened. Another Christmas miracle. I, Beckums Burton, went outside my comfort zone and went to a craft store today. Yes, you read that correctly. This undomesticated diva not only went to a craft store but I was on a mission for an inexpensive DIY Christmas ornament for my Purple Pinky Prayer Partners Class. After wandering the store, I ran across their DIY display. They had a cute idea! Hmmm...the idea reminded me of ornaments I have seen on some fellow bloggers' sites. Then my mind does what it does best...it started the the comparisons and what-ifs "well, if they can do it, so can I! Besides I'm older than those young blogger chicks. Uh-oh but, what if mine don't look as good as theirs? What if they flop and I don't have a gift for my class...." I mean really? Can it be that hard? Shoot--I've home schooled for twelve years. If I can dissect an earth worm in the kitchen for Biology then SURELY I can make an ornament. I stood in the aisle, took a deep breath, repeated the Serenity prayer (not really) and then I loaded up my cart and headed to the check-out counter.
I came, I saw, and I conquered. Who knew I could be so crafty? (well--in this sense of the word!) I feel so empowered now. I am woman hear me roar!!!
(BTW--if you are in my Women's Bible Study class and are reading this before Sunday---act surprised when you get your ornament. lol!)
