I love that feeling...that process that takes you from idea to Joanns to seam ripper to finished project. Im a busy gal, but recently I realized I needed to take action and not just leave crafting to when I have free time.

I have a little blog to document inspirations and experimental crafting adventures. Stop by anytime - zested.blogspot.com. Serving up handmade and makeable inspirations, crafting ideas and tutorials. Get Zested and add a little DIY twist to everyday life!

Re: All Crafters Need Inspiration!

Are you reading my mind? I've been playing on Stylehive a lot lately. I wasn't sure if I should make the leap and join, but you just convinced me!

Re: Show Me Your Workspace

I just got my very small amount of crafting supplies and fabric leftovers organized too! I also have each of my projects in it's own tub so I can take it out, work on it, wrap it up and put it back - it's really help me get what I want done. Here's a pic and some background:
