Have you heard of the fail blog? I've decided I need to add a personal edition:
I thought it would be fun; I thought it might be cheaper; I thought I knew enough about sewing not to mess it up. Little did I know...The thing is, I still don't know how to fix it. When I saw what I had done, I laughed so hard and ran to grab the camera. I mean, it takes a special skill to do this...! The seam ripper is becoming a great friend...the kind of friend you only see when times are tough.
I frequently find myself in situations like these--well intentioned, simple-minded mistakes. Now, I generally consider myself intelligent (definitely losing it as I have more kids and get older), but mishaps like these seem inevitable. The other day while pondering my perpetually not-quite-there moments, I came up for a new name for myself, and I'm considering starting another blog specifically for people like me...Ladies and gentlemen, to celebrate these moments for myself and all others like me, I now dub myself the "Imperfectionista." I even have a slogan..."So good at not being great!" So, anyone with me? You wanna join my club?
