"The Project" Project

There are millions of super cool crafts I keep finding. And I want to do them. All of them. But, I'm slow at crafting. Really sllloooooooowwww. I read slowly, I crochet and knit slowly, don't even ask me how long it takes to complete one scrapbook page!! So, I've decided to compile all the awesome crafts I find, because this blog is my journal of all things. And I can't lose it. (well, I could, but let's think happy thoughts.) I lose paper lists like you wouldn't believe. And bookmarks don't work for me either. We have two computers and then I can't remember where I saved a particular project link and/or it gets buried and forgotten.

So, I'm making a list...and I'll be checking it twice, and thrice, and so on...and adding to it as I find more awesomely cool things to make. I'll mark off the crafts as I do them. (and I'll add a link to my finished product, because you know there will be a post about it!)

There's a link to The Project Project in "The Basement" a reminder to myself and just in case you'd like to check in from time to time to see what I've found.

Happy crafting!

    I switched my google editor and well, all links and photos were told to go to their tutorials, but google did what they wanted! I've gone back through and linked everything to their tuts, so hopefully they all work correctly now!
