I've tried pacifying this urge by doing what I do best, RESEARCHING, and created a draft email to save and access wherever I go with all the links to activities I want to do. I justify not doing these projects because I don't have the resources - no sewing machine, no paper or fabric, no skills. Yet the yearning to craft lingers on and I continue to add sites to my blog roll and links to inspirations in my email.

Katie Did Journal
She lives in NY, has the most adorable kids and makes them amazing clothes. Like this dress.
How did she get the skirt to be like that?
Check out this FANTASTIC Christmas decoration she made!!
I have creativity envy big time, and am procrastinating the day of my repentance.
