Ok, so SPF this week doesn't have a theme title, but that's ok. Brought to us as always by Kristine, this weeks list is: 1. Something you made/built yourself 2. The tools of your hobby 3. Something you want to get rid of
First of all, I am the FARTHEST thing from crafty. I looked and looked and thought and thought and could not find one thing in my house I built myself. I don't sew. I don't build. Hey, I barely even made this blog myself. I posted once about a yummy dessert I made myself. But I'm an engineer, AND one that does sales and marketing too, so I write a lot of articles and papers and do really cool presentations to promote myself and my company. Here's my latest published creation, an article on networking in the uber-cool wastewater trade journal, WE&T. If you really want to read it, email me and I'll send it to ya. My byline at the bottom is conveniently hidden by the flash reflection.
I'm not sure if Kristine meant she wanted the tools I used to make the above creation, or a genuine hobby (which that isn't) so I'll give you both. Of course I used my puter to write that article. I actually did use a pen first, but here's my very messy workspace.
Now, my REAL hobby is shopping. It's what I do when I'm bored. It's what I do when I want some retail therapy. Here are my essential tools:
Finally, something I want to get rid of. I was going to show you my "fat jeans" which are now thankfully two sizes to big (almost three!) but I was too embaressed. So here are a couple pair of shoes that I bought when I was younger and hip and now they are too young for my sophisticated soccer mom self.
I'm off on vacay to Boston Friday for a loooooong weekend so I won't be postin' for awhile. Leave lotsa comments for me to see when I get back!!
