Naptime is Craftime

I am so excited about my new craftime page!! Whoop Whoop!!  Let's get going!

I am going to update this page with links to my favorite craft posts and projects, pictures and tutorials.  It is also going to be a little bloggy journal for how things are going for me in the crafting world.

Right now I am majorly into knitting, but I have a bunch of other things I want to try in 2011.  It will be a lot more than knitting stuff, I promise!  Most of my crafting ideas come from other blogs, magazines, and such.  I am definitely a wonderful copier, but sometimes I can bust out with some awesome craftiness all on my own...crazy right?
