Default If you could turn back time...

Now that I have Cher in your head... time for a question.

I started stamping about 4 years after I got married and I kick myself now for squandering away the perfect oppurtunity for stamping projects. I considered myself crafty then and made my own favors but I cringe when I think about them...
Picture toilet paper tubes cut into thirds, filled with Hershey Kisses, then wrapped in a circle of tissue paper, gathered at the top and then cut down with decorative scissors to make a "blossom"...barf.

If I could go back in time with my current stamping knowledge wow what a difference! I'd make my own invites, create a fun program, and make some cool nugget boxes or 2,4,6,8 boxes for favors.

Anybody else wish they could take what they know now (stamping wise) and apply it to a time in the past?

Yes, I feel had I known the craft ideas today I would do wonders back in the day. I'm glad I have a child now to make gifts for holidays on behalf of my son also for his birthday parties.

I don't look back either in a regretting way. When I do it just shows me how much I've learned and grown.

I've wasted so many materials over the years, going back I'd like to think I'd be wiser.

I cringe thinking about the baby announcements that I made 2 years ago. They were AWFUL!

I made packs of cards about 2 months after I started stamping and gave them as gifts.

I colored in the images with COLORED PENS.

I just felt my cheeks turn flaming red justing thinking about it.

What an awful "gift" those were.
