My crafty twin*

When I was in middle school, high school, and college, I used to tell my friends that my sister sucked all the creative juices in the womb and left me with pretty much nothing. What do I tell them now days, you ask? Well, no one really asks but, if they did, I could claim that I finally found some small bit of craftiness in me. It took about 26 years for it to appear but I'm glad I've tapped into it!

Regardless of that talent I've found, though, my twin is still much craftier than I (no, not in the evil sense!). And I have proof! She has made me many things over the years and now that her daughter and Baby C are around, she has gone overboard on the crafts. For our birthday, for example, she made me a wonderful pennant banner for C's nursery. I just wanted to share a few pictures of them so that you could all agree that she is very creative.

Also, if you look to the far right of the last picture, you can see some canvas paintings made by, who else, my sister. She has a lovely blog, too, full of cute pics of her daughter (baby R) but it is private. Feel free to ask her if you'd like to peruse her personal site!

*I was desperately trying to think of a creative title that had to do with craftiness and twins but, other than something like a "crafty evil twin" that was all I could come up with. See why I need my more creative sister?

glad you left the evil out--even if it is it though?
