Winter Crafts

I don't want this blog to turn into a craft blog, I really don't, and it's starting to feel like it's morphing into that.
Right now, crafting is one of my favorite things. I especially am enjoying it since I am learning to use my sewing machine and since we have been really struggling financially because of my job situation - "crafts" seem to be a great solution to things that we want and need but can't afford. So, not only do I enjoy crafting a lot lately, but we also sort of need some of the stuff I've been making, in addition to my "going paperless in 2010" initiative that seriously involves a lot of sewing!

And things aren't looking to change much any time too soon, although I'll try to keep including updates and adventures from our lives in addition to the crafts.

Christmas crafts are underway. And I'm so having a hard time not sharing them with you!!! Maybe I'll have to write some posts and make the publishing date to after Christmas because I'm a crappy blogger at that time of the year and I really can hardly keep these handmade goodies a secret. But I don't want Christmas surprises ruined, so my crafty posts about them will have a "do not open until Christmas" publishing date.

Until then, look for posts about these fun winter-inspired crafts:
