One-eyed Envy Monster

Okay ... GENERALLY, I'm a very, VERY gracious, generous and giving person. In fact, I have issues with being TOO generous, kind, loving, yadayadayada... But now, I have a need to PURGE myself. In fact, I just sent an email to Kim from Can You Hear Me Now? and told her I was going to do just that ... purge. Why did I tell her that? Because Kim is so stinking creative that I knew she'd understand. And, because I had to share the "link" to the bane of my existence with her [insert evil laugh]. And ... because now, I'm having evil thoughts about someone ...

You see, last month, Shannon at Rocks in my Dryer posted a very quick, and, what some might think, un-noticeable post about a lovely craft studio that she came across -- yeah, a craft studio -- seemingly so innocent -- so, yeah ... props to Shannon -- and having said that, here's a special little thank you to Shannon ...


"Thanks, Shannon ... for feeding the awful, green monster that dwells inside of me ... you know ... the one-eyed envy monster. For without you, it may NEVER have reared it's ugly, spinney, razor-sharp, mean head, and would have stayed quietly within had it not seen this sugary sweet and quite edible room you linked us all too. I love you dearly, Shannon, but THIS I could have done without."


There you have it. The truth. GiBee has envy issues of the worst kind... as in ... I WANT THE SAME ROOM with all the lovely, gorgeous, orderly, clean, every-thing-in-its-place, eat-your-heart-out fabrics, ribbons, buttons, and thingamabobbies. And anyone that knows me intimately, KNOWS that this is right up my alley -- style, colors, etc.

So ... Do I have your attention? Are you in the least bit curious? Well then, click your way on over to Hello, My Name is Heather and see exactly what I'm talking about, dagblamit!

Is slobber harmful to the keyboard?

SIGH... I may have to take a few days of silence to clean my heart out... Pray for me.

I am drooling at The Sugar Shop right along with you. Everything looks so fun and amazing, although I am sure if I bought anything you would put it to much better use than I would. I am not very crafty, but I like to have such things.

By the way, your one eyed monster looks kind of cute :) !!

I have that green eyed monster shows up once in a while over here but I have to admit never over a craft room or anthing to do with sewing. More like over really nice serving dishes. :v)

See this is the nice thing about having nary a creative bone in my body. I can look at that and say, "Annnh."

However, if you show me someone whose husband makes enough that she can stay home and do whatever all the time with friends, then my one-eyed green envy monster makes its presence known...

Sigh. I still love them, but I just want to be like them too.

And yes, I'm asking God to work on my contentment in my heart.

Drooling here too. That room is amazing. I am a distinct shade of green right now. Not a good look!

Kristen said...

I'll pray for you if you'll pray for me. I'll never ever in my lifetime have a room in my house that looks like that.

You're not alone, darlin'--I've been drooling over that room ever since I posted it.

I want The Sugar Shop room too, but I doubt that will happen for a long, long time.

Aargh! I see what you mean! And now you are tempting the rest of us into sin! ;-)

That is truly the COOLEST studio I've ever seen!

You think she'd invite us over to visit!

AuntieB said...

I totally understand. I really could see myself sitting in there with my grandmothers quilting "horses" and sewing away.

"Forgive us Lord, for we know exactly what we've done." ;)
