Crazy Talented – I am NOT


Do you know what is like crack to me?

Other people’s crazy talents.

I just spent over an hour on looking at felted animal creations simply because I didn’t know what “Waldorf inspired” meant.  I bing-ed it (because my SIL posted a photo to FB mentioning it and I’ve always wondered what it meant) and all of these wonderful things popped up in the image results – all pointing to

I now want one – from one specific gal.  She is crazy talented, and I’m so jealous of her crazy talent that I emailed her just to tell her how insanely talented she is.

I’m like that – I just can’t keep it to myself.  I feel like I must tell these people how gifted they are, and how envious I am of their talent (in a good way, of course!).  I must thank them for sharing their talent with the rest of us.

I am the same way with watching people sing (I’ve touched on this in the past when talking about my love of Glee).  I cannot get enough of people who can belt out a song or two with perfect pitch and tone.  I am in awe of these people, and I must go up to them and tell them if I get the chance (I do this in hopes that they’ll sing again so I can revel in their talent once again).

Same thing with dancing.  I cannot dance to save my life, but my husband can!  I love watching him dance with other people who are wonderful dancers.  I sometimes think that’s weird of me – but I figure that I’m not a good dance partner and the man just has to dance sometimes.  I LOVE watching him dance, especially with one of my friends who is also a crazy-good dancer!  Of course, I must know the gal before I offer him up to dance with her  😉

Same thing with the violin.  Man alive – that instrument takes talent!  This instrument will likely be forced on Matthew in the near future just because it’s an instrument I so wish I could play myself.

That is all.  I needed to admit my addiction before I could go to bed.

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. I am in awe of those who can craft. I suck at anything to do with sewing or knitting. Or decor. I blow at decorating. I am a terrible singer too. I don’t do a lot well!!

    My daughter is now making patterns for coats and dresses and hats out of paper bags so she can eventually use those patterns to sew the fabric together and I am just utterly bewildered. How does a brain figure that out?!?!

  2. I totally agree and Etsy has really shown in!! There are sooo many amazing people out there with these crazy talents who are now able to show them off (and sell them) to the world. I can’t get over it. It definitely makes me wish I could do some of that stuff though. I do a little tiny bit of a few things like sewing and drawing but I would never say I am talented at it. And singing, ohh I am the worst so I am in total awe of the people on all those singing shows who have amazing voices.

  3. I love oohing and ahhing over other people’s talents too. And I love bragging about my siblings- now those are some crazy talented people! I will have to look up the Waldorf inspired thing- cause I don’t know what that is either!

    • It’s a kindergarten curriculum. Intersting! Etsy has all sorts of stuff with that as a key word.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who is obsessed with others’ talents!

  4. YES! I am like this too! I love watching people sing and dance even if I’m no good at either! (Okay, I’m not a half-bad dancer, but nothing like REAL dancing.)

    And now I’m going to go google, I mean Bing, the etsy stuff!
