There are a few crafts that intimidate me.
One of them is soap making. I am not talking about the melt and pour. I am talking about the (real) kind that you have to use lye to make. The lye is what scares me. I am kinda clumsy AND I have kids. Not really a good mix.
Another one is woodworking. I really (REALLY) want to build a shelf or an AMAZING kitchen for my kiddies or even a simple raised bed garden. But the saw, the nails and the MEASURING ... No, thanks.
The next one is kinda embarrassing. I am intimidated by reupholstering! Can you believe that? Or at least I WAS. I know people say that it is super easy. But I did not believe them. How am I gonna tear up some furniture and put it back together with no guide/instruction? Well, quite simply, apparently.
On New Years Day, I had a brunch at my house. Most people were pretty late, but Grandma Ruth - always on time - showed up about 45 minutes before everyone else. She is super crafty like me ;). As she was about to sit down on one of my stools (The horrible cushions stopped her in her tracks) - she said: "Do you want me to cover these?" Although slightly embarrassed by my stained bar stools, (I am not one to turn down help) I responded enthusiastically: "YES!". She said, "If you have the fabric, I can do it in 30 minutes". What? 30 minutes? Now that is MY kinda craft.
And she did!
