Stacy at Not Just a Housewife came up with a great idea for a linky party. Instead of posting creations that we are proud of, to post the accidental creations that happen when we are creating. Ummm, yeah. We all have our unproud moments. For me its the tummy and butt that I want to lose but won't be able to when I am making and eating Whoopie Pies. Or the mess of a craft "area" that resides in my living room because my house is too small to have a dedicated area. Or the dishes in the sink that I cannot be bothered to do because I am making a cool dog leash.
Its actually not that bad, the dishes do get done and the sewing machine does get put away. What I never have time for is:
Gaaaa, the car! My car is a '95 Volkswagon Jetta. Its not some fancy-schmancy ride. I purchased this car (in cash, baby!) 2 years ago for a whopping $700! Don't laugh, it was a smokin' deal. It had only 35,000 miles on it at the time. It now has 112,000. Um, that is 77,000 miles in two years. Yes, we spend a lot of time in the car. And, it shows. My poor car gets saved for last, only getting cleaned after the necessary crafting, cleaning, dishes, work, spending time with family, American Idol watching, well, you get the picture. And, speaking of pictures.....fancy these:
|The drink cups? Don't worry, those are from this morning. We eat frozen smoothies for breakfast. Its like chocolate ice cream.|
|No, we often don't have room for groceries.|
|Fingerprints on the trunk. We do clean the windows when we gas up. Every. Other. Day.|
