Kat~

WARNING! I am easily distracted by things! (And me too! LOL)

Mama with too many fun things to spend money on!

Hello, my name is Kat and I am a crafting addict...

I craft, therefore I am

Can't be trusted not to spend money on craft supplies!

Just TRY and keep me from crafting!

Can I say how much fun I am having making the "nerdy" flash cards?

I am making them my own(new pics and changing some words) and it is coming out so cool!

I will post pics when I get done

I felted some soap last night. I love it! It's not pretty, I didn't use any colored wool, just plain white, but it's nice & scrubby without being too scratchy and my skin felt so soft when I got out of the shower. I guess that's a great thing about using raw wool, still lots of lanolin left in it!

I recommend checking this DVD out at the library:
I can't believe I'm crocheting! Beginner
Alternate title: Learn to crochet with Melissa Leapman
Published Little Rock, AR : Leisure Arts, c2006.

Also check out YouTube:

Crochet for Dummies and Visual Crochet are also really good! I tend to be a kinetic learner, so Visual was really great for me!
