Have I Told You about My Sister?
My mom was a crafter, and obviously, I inherited that gene but it appeared my sister had not. After college, she was bored and looking for a hobby. One Christmas, I bought her everything, and I mean everything, you would need to do polymer clay crafts. It didn't take.
Then she discovered rubber stamping. I have to say she's actually the one who got me into that. (She dragged me along to Stampin' Up! parties and demos.) It was definitely her thing. And we know this because I once sent my one-eyed, nearly blind grandmother a card with a miniscule smudge on it, and she told me that my sister was the real card maker, the superior stamper. (That's for those of you jonesing for a Maggie story.)
Like most crafters, she's gotten into Pinterest. When she found this wreath and pinned it, I read the instructions. No way! So much work! It took her all summer, but she finished. Gorgeous, isn't it? She's all psyched up to do it in other colors for all the holidays. More power to her!
