No Sew Socktopus

First off….let me tell you what I LOVE about having a blog. *I* get to pick whatever I want to post about!
Now….let me tell you what I HATE about having a blog. *I* have to pick whatever I want to post about!

I don’t know about other bloggers…but one of the things I struggle with the MOST on a day to day basis is deciding what to post about! But not in the way you might expect. I don’t struggle with ideas I want to explore, create, try, make, attempt, experiment with, etc. I have so many things in my head and in my files that I want to eventually get to, but I AGONIZE over which one to do on what particular day. I am definitely challenged in the decision-making department.

I realize it would probably help me a lot if I were to schedule things ahead of time and just stick to the schedule…but much to the hubsters (and others) chagrin….I just don’t work that way. lol. I’m more of a spontaneous type of girl. Something that can be both a blessing and a curse.

Anyway, I’m not sure why I went off on that little tangent…but it does illustrate why I had such a struggle coming up with what to post about tonight/today. It’s been a pretty intense week for me and I really just wanted to spend some time working on one of the few little crafts I’ve seen lately that I was itching to try. But like I have shared before…I’m a little intimidated by all the expert crafting that is out there in blogland, and tend to second (and third) guess myself about posting anything crafty.

Well, tonight, for some reason, I was in a crafty mood and just decided to go for it. I figured if it was a miserable failure I would just “punt” with another simple post idea…but I had so much fun with these little sock guys, I decided to ignore intimidation and glory in my amateur craftiness! And it felt great!

So here is my picture tutorial on how to make a No Sew Socktopus. Pretty much the easiest thing ever.

My inspiration:

My creation:

OK….MAKING the Socktopus was fun! But taking pictures of them was even MORE fun!

I think I needed a little goofing off time today. 🙂

As usual, I appreciate you putting up with my occasional “NEED to craft”!  : -)
