If I said "I'm not crafty!" everyone would immediately disagree. But that wasn't the case a few years ago.
Let me paint a picture - It was nearing the end of 2006 and the Harry Potter Symposium Phoenix Rising was going to happen in May of 2007. We were sorted into houses depending on a survey that was taken when registering. I wanted to earn house points and show pride for my fictional "house" before the conference. Unfortunately, I was not crafty at all. When I was 10 or so I gave scrapbooking a try and it just didn't work out for me. My older sister Kandi was a scrapbook master, so I knew I couldn't compete with that kind of thing. My other older sister Laci was an awesome clarinet player. I felt like I could never compete with my sisters because they were so awesome at what they did. I was bummed out that I didn't have something that I could just do like they did.
I wanted some freaking house points so I eventually started creating a few things here and there and now I'm not afraid to try anything. I've tried papercrafts, cross stitch, knitting, crochet, quilting, punch needle, t-shirt stenciling, button making, candle making, glass etching, and probably other little things I'm forgetting.
I believe that I can do anything as long as there are some clear directions on how to accomplish it (and if not, I might brainstorm long enough to figure all of it out). How can anyone know if they are good at a craft or not until after they've tried it?
