wanna-be DIY crafter gal

Pin It

I've been on a wanna-be DIY kick.  I've also been using Pinterest, which I think is really just fueling the fire. Seriously, it's a great way to keep track of an idea without printing out gobs of paper, or having bookmarks without a visual cue.  Maybe that's what I love about Pinterest - the visual cue for awesomeness.

In case you're curious - I'm on Pinterest as (surprise, surprise) DangerousCrayon.  If you want to get pinning, let me know and I'll hook you up with an invite.

There are so many awesome blogs out there offering ideas and tutorials, it's hard to resist adding more projects to the pile.

I need to be very careful about which projects I choose to do.  At this point, they need to be very, very quick and easy, because I have SO MANY other projects that I start and never finish.  That is so the story of my life.  I have a picture frame I bought two years ago with a project in mind.  I have quilt material that I've had for 3 years, and I'm just now getting around to actually cutting the fabric.  I've been decorating my bedroom since last winter, and it's still not done (I think I have a DIY headboard floating around my brain somewhere... along with matching bedside tables.)

Oh, what a slacker am I! Unfinished projects abound!

But the projects are so fun, and pretty, and decorative... I'll get to them, though, and post them. Probably.

Maybe it just needs to be big stuff, like shelves and benches, step stools and uh... well, not quilts, although I have finished some of those. Did I ever show that?  I made if for Jude for his birthday.  I finished it just a week or two before Elizabeth was born, and my parents picked it up from the quilt shop (I admit I have other people machine quilt my quilts. I know. Not really quilting, am I?)

So, here's a picture:

I am hopeful that I'll have another quilt to show off in a month or so. Maybe I'll have someone pick it up after baby Cakes shows up.
