little miss know-it-all

roger hargreaves was a genius*

i have a bad case of i-know-how-to-do-it-myself-itis. it goes nicely with my know-it-all-ness.

it makes it a challenge to delegate, among other things: invite others to help in the kitchen, hire someone to paint the house, let the hubby bathe the dogs. yep, i’m a control freak. occasionally i wonder what i’m missing by not trusting others…like free time. {i’m feeling the pressure of that this week, especially.}

i’m trying to get better at admitting that i don’t know everything, i really really am. to that end i’ll be taking some jewelry making classes this summer. i’m heading back to the lovely bay area for two classes at the crucible. next weekend i’ll be learning how to saw, chase, and solder…things i taught myself and sort of know how to do already, but i’m hoping that i can learn how to do them better. then next month i’ll head back to learn how to carve my own wax designs and then cast them, which would mean i could make my own sterling silver charms and pendants, making my jewelry more my own creation.

and who knows, maybe in the process i’ll become a little less flawed.

*though i was surprised to find out that he didn’t actually make a little miss know-it-all. huge oversight, i think. {yeah, i would say that, huh}
