that i know....

I have to admit....i'm not the most creative girl in town.

put me in front of a sewing matching and i look at it like it's going to attack me.

no...i do not know how to sew.

I don't even know how to close a rip in my son's jeans.

my poor husband saves his things that need minor work till my mom comes to town.


put me in front of some glue and paper.....and i make a mess.....

i even glue my fingers together.....

it's quite dreadful actually.
I failed arts and crafts 101.


But.....put me in a shoe dept. ....and i'll find the cutest shoes that go with the cutest clothes.

and that i can do. .....
and the funny thing is....when i show up to dinner with my girlfriends...our style is ever similar.


I can style a picture......that i know.
I can make my home look good.....that i know....



I can take a good picture.....that i know.


I can throw one heck of a good soiree.....that i know.....
I can catch my kids doing something extraordinary....that i know.
I can pick out one heck of a good bottle of wine....that i know.
I can cook a mean pot of mac n cheese....that i know.
I can make someone giggle....that i know.
I can also....get out of my comfort zone....and by myself......
let my humor out....let you in to my life.....
that i know.
I can use the glue gun......that i know.
I can drive by my gym and straight to starbucks....that i know.
I can text while using the elliptical at the gym....that i know.





The search for creativity is an ever evolving event in my life....finding an outlet that works for me.
That i know.
We are all different in our creativity.....what is it that you know about yourself?
...
*yes..i will be at the country living fair....but i won't be selling this year...i will be perusing...
*I also have 9 pounds that i really need to lose....
*I will not be having a baby in 9 months
*I am almost to my 300th post....which is amazing.{i guess i like to write...}

Congratulations on your upcoming 300th post.
The lake looked like a blast.
I don't like to swim in lakes but, I don't tell my kids that.
I'm glad to hear your mother is doing better.
I didn't post sooner because I too was sick. Not like your mom, luckily.
You are very lucky to have such a great friend in your mom.
Enjoy the rest of your week,
Cari B.

Suzann @ The Olive Cottage said...

Yours is one of my most favorite blogs to read daily (and that I know for sure!). I've missed ya - life swept me away for a bit, but I'm peeking out from the piles of paper. Not creativity, but work.

And what gym do you drive past??

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

I love that first picture. It looks staged. Same pants...same clutches (loving those, by the way).

I make a mean mac n' cheese, myself. ha!

PamperingBeki said...

Oh, my fellow non-sewing blogger... I love you so! That, I know.

Your house is cleaner than mine, that I know.

You're more comfortable in front of the camera than I am, that I know.

You don't own shoes from the 90's like I do, that I know.

Sandy and Joe/rhubarb reign said...

Good to see you at Kane, Kasey. Thanks for the business -- and for the note on our post. Come see us at Springfield while you are in Ohio -- only 30 minutes from the Country Living show. xo

Anita said...

I know that we wish you were coming to Junk Bonanza but we promise to take pictures and we will look at yours too...

Now, I also know...you crack me up, you remind me of what is important in life, everyone thinks they need to lose weight and be model thin when they don't ( ok, maybe I do need to lose some), and that I am glad I met you...

Laura said...

I know that I am capable of more and better.
And that I am a kick ass mom.
And that you have better shoes than me.

The Vintage Modern Girl said...

what a great post! love the pictures- especially that bike! and is that a Little Byrd Vintage clutch you are carrying??? I have one, too!

Rue said...

While I was catching up with you I thought... OMG she's pregnant! LOL Guess not ;)

I plan on being at the fair too, but I'm not sure what day yet. You'll see me by looking for the fat girl with the hot guy ... um yeah, I have many more than 9 lbs to lose. House selling is stressful and so is two extra kids plus an ex wife moving into town LOL What do I know? That I weighed 40 lbs less 1 year ago... yikes!

xoxo,
rue

Kristin said...

You have some pretty kick arse talents. That I know.

Lori said...

I am loving your list of things that you CAN do - we so often sit and can list our downfalls, but we seem to skate by things that we do well. Bravo to you for making me smile once again!
