If I Only Knew...

Have you ever wished that you had knowledge or talent in an area where you have absolutely no knowledge or talent?
I have.
I do.
I am.
There are so many things that I wish I knew about or wish I knew how to do.
For instance, sewing.
I really wish I knew how to sew.
By hand or by machine - I'll take either one.
I have gone so far as to look up where I could take classes, and I've even looked at machines on Craigslist.
Just think of all the things I could make!

Cute vintage-style dresses.

The possibilities are endless.

Another thing I really wish I knew how to do was carpentry. 
Or "build stuff" as I would most likely call it. 
I would make wall decor.

A gorgeous dining table.
What? I could make it...
Or maybe this little beauty that I have been drooling over.

That little corner bench would be per-fect in our breakfast nook.
Unfortunately, I not only lack the know-how, I lack the tools.

If you are skilled in either of these areas, please come over.
I will love you forever and pay you in cookies.
But really, I know my sister's boyfriend is in carpentry school and I hope he knows I have plans for him...

PS - I survived my first day of school! I can already feel the stress mounting after only 2 classes, but I think its going to be a pretty great semester!


  1. YAY! I'm glad you survived your first day!!

  2. Thanks Kitty!! And you too! I hope you have a great 2nd year!!

  3. If I lived closer I would teach you to sew. It's really easy. As far as carpentry goes...I can hardly glue 2 Popsicle sticks together. haha

  4. I will buy you a sewing machine. You deserve it! Love you!
