If you're like me...


...you probably have drawers full of supplies just itching to get used in a project. Like that Kelly green yarn you absolutely had to have because it would be a great pop of color in a project (but which one?) or that pad of scrapbook paper that was on sale for a great price which looked great in the store, but once it got home it didn't look at all what you thought (kind of like the men I have chosen, but that's another story). I call this syndrome "Supplynutism." Basically whenever one walks into the store and is just over come with all the colors, textures and glitter all around that they lose sight of why they are actually there.

I am the type of person who is always searching the internet for fun projects or ideas that are cute, fun and easy to make. Don't get me wrong though, I also have those projects that I don't have the skill level to complete such as fair isle knit gloves, however, I don't know how to knit. I guess you could call me the "wanna be " of the crafting world.  But starting May 8th that is all going to change...

Let me first start off by introducing myself. My name is Christine and I am currently working on getting a degree in dairy science. During school I live on campus in an apartment with three other people and tend to spend most of my time in my room working on homework for class. I'm not the average college student, by that I mean I don't go out on weekends to party, instead I like to stay at home and craft or hang with friends. When school is on break, I go live with my parents where I help with projects around the house and craft as well (my life is quite boring, hence why my blog is not so much about that).

As for my crafting life, I haven't been doing it that long (only a couple of years). The first thing I did was scrapbook and have been doing that for a while. Sadly though I have not been lately. Probably because last year I taught myself to crochet and have been doing that. However, right now all of my crafting is on hold until the school year is over so I can focus on finals. So that is why this project won't start until May 8th so check back then.

The plan is this summer to find projects that are fun, appealing, and functional and most importantly in a level I can handle. Most projects will probably be crocheting or scrapbooking, but I will try to incorporate other techniques as I would like to try beading, knitting, painting, and sewing. With each project I will push myself a little more and more. Plus I will try to post where I get the projects from so you can make it too or at least point you in the right direction.

The first project is going to be a crocheted laptop case that I've been dying to make so be sure to come back for that. Until then I will try to post some pictures of previous projects of mine but that may take a little bit.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!

P.S. I will apologize now for the fact that I am not a writer (if you couldn't tell) so my posts will probably be a little choppy.
