  • Craft Room Revamp #1 – Fabric Covered Bulletin Board

    November 16, 2009

    I’ve been working on several renovation projects lately. Nothing too fancy, I gave up on my dining room chairs and bought new white chairs, but I had a few items in my craft room/office that needed a little sprucing up.

    June 4, 2009

    I have several very different craft projects in the works, and for some reason it is really difficult for me to get one completed. Three of my projects under my Works in Progress bars are presents, so those have deadlines, but the others are just out in limbo.
