craft, "crap!" craft, "crap!"

the title of this post is my mentality lately. and i suppose, this is what one should sound like as they are learning new crafts and techniques to craft with. i have crafting on the brain all day long. when the time comes for me to begin crafting... i must undo, redo, rip, scratch, and try it all over again. this should serve as a proper indication of my thought process...

... a complete, total, ABSOLUTE mess.

yup. that's me through and through.

BUT it keeps me on my toes. :)

i'm on try #3 of a craft that i can't even share with you until i've mastered it, made a few (for friends), and said friends receive them in the mail. (don't want to ruin the surprise.) until then, i'll just have to post more pics of my mess. ;)

i got a new toy with birthday money that i'd been hoarding since 2008! holla! a serger. now, where's the "on" button again!?!? haha!
i'm not even kidding.
