Thanks! I am excited to start--

Uh.. Mona Lisa? um... I think I am going to start out with some swirlys and lines... work my way up, yanno? :)

Jen said...

Omg I can't wait to see you try this! :)

CJ said...

You can learn to hook!! Like me!! We can be hookers together!

Amy said...

Wait a min. You're obsessed but you haven't actually started yet?

And you STILL don't have those nails off?

Good luck with both

C.I.W. said...

I know I can do this! I know I can be good at this! I am confident.

And no, Nonny- these nail are still f-ing on. I swear. Don't let me get them again. I am not a girley nail kinda gal. I am utilitarian. I am sturdy. I am not fru-fru.

Amy said...

I didn't "let" you get them the first time. You know my opinion on them!

I'm sure you CAN hook rugs. But, WILL you?

C.I.W. said...

yes. why wouldn't I? It isn't weigh-loss. Its fun! I do many things...I am crafty!

Amy said...
