Wow, I finally did it.

After lurking for what seems like forever on everyone else's crafty blogs, after stealing idea after idea after idea from other bloggers, after compiling a miles-long list of crafty things I would also like to create that I saw on other blogs, well, I finally started a blog. Now if I can only learn how to make my blog look even half as cool as my favorite blogs, what with their snappy banners at the top, cute borders along the sides, etc., well, then I'll really be in business.

I am an Alice of sorts, wondering through my own little crafty wonderland. I love to do many different crafts -- sewing, quilting, scrapbooking, and painting for right now -- but my crafty side seems to change and evolve with every minute that goes by. I am the Queen of Unfinished Projects, of Procrastination, and of crafting "ADHD" -- I can't seem to work on just one thing at a time. It is a sickness. This blog will serve as an outlet to share my works in progress (WIP's), inspiration I find elsewhere, and hopefully just some general amusement for whomever might stop by for a visit. I can't promise I'll post every day, but then again, I tend to get obsessive compulsive about these sorts of things, so maybe.

Here goes nuthin'...
