I'd rather have a fancy-shmansy blog

Just wanted to let you know that I am working on the site right now, instead of posting! I am absolutely floored that I was able to make the blog into a 3 column format all by me-self! Arg! I feel like a pirate! (Weird...sorry.)

Next onto making my own header. Wish me luck. If I figure it out I'll post the how-to!

If you want a 3 column...visit They cover all your bases and are very straight forward. Tell them I sent ya! (No, I'm kidding, I just always wanted to say that!)

I would so rather be crafting

I would so rather be crafting. Take, for example, right now. I could:

a. do laundry
b. getting ready for an upcoming yard sale fundraiser
c. planning dinner
d. organizing

Instead, I am thinking about what I can craft up for mothers day. And yesterday, I was crafting a butterfly note holder when I should have been making dinner. And I have been known to stay up until 2 or 3 in the morning just to finish a craft. (Although, I am also a big procrastinator. Hence, why I it took me so long to post on this lovely blog.)

Now, I don't craft as much as I would like. I am slightly computer addicted, so I first have to draw myself away from blogs and facebook (oh, and...hello, twitter, my new friend!) Granted, I am on these sites to get more crafty knowledge (and play bejeweled blitz) but still....the internet is my friend. I guess I tend to get stuck in the "in between's" and that, my new blog reader, is why I have created "I'd rather be crafting." Because, while I would rather be doing it, I still need a swift kick to actually do it.

My hope is to push myself to post here my crafty pursuits. And to forward on awesome idea's that I have yet to do. And to hear what others do. And to learn how to do it.

There it is. Hopefully, I'll be able to fulfill at least one of those objectives. And if not, maybe I'll at least make some new friends.

Thanks for reading,
