I’m getting the itch to pull out my sewing machine again. I’ve been fighting the itch for a few weeks for a few reasons, the chief of which is when it comes to crafting, I don’t want to be a “Jack of all Trades”. That might sound crazy but if you know the entire saying — it’s “Jack of All Trades, Master of None” — you should understand my dilema. My thing is that I want to be Mistress of all the crafty endeavors I try. I want to be technically sound with really well-done end products. I don’t want to be a crafty butterfly, just flitting from one thing to the next never actually achieving proficiency at anything. Am I the only one torn between all there is to craft? Let me know in the comments how you manage being multi-craftual (yes … a made up word) if you are.
Since I seem powerless right now (or it could just be indiscipline) 😳 to stop myself from responding to said itch, I’m getting acquainted with:
and this tutorial
to see if I can come up with my own version of

This should be an interesting ride. 😀
P.S. Did I also mention that the below is calling me also?
It’s a cross-stitch pattern. 🙄
Someone point me to the nearest crafty rehab group please?
What’s grabbing your attention for summer crafting? I’d love to hear!

Since I’m junk with timelines and challenges (except those I MUST do) let’s see how this works. 😛
The point — since I started seriously crafting — a whopping 35 days ago, I’ve gotten a lot of inspiration from other craft bloggers. It’s hard to bookmark every single one and “pinning” is so time consuming to me. I don’t know how the chronic pinners do it; they have my eternal gratitude. To that end, I’m adding my inspiration to this here craft diary. That way, I’ll spend less time with my absent-mindedness trying to track down what I’ve seen, loved, but didn’t save. My goal is to spend less time online, more time crafting and living.
Some things you’ll see — an inspiration picture (taken by me or some other source), a quote, a video, a tip, some links, a project, a blog — something that inspires … on Sunday … so you and I can have a head-start to our crafty week. How about it?
That’s rhetorical … you don’t HAVE TO answer …. 😛 But you can if you want to. 😀
