I've got a problem

If you haven't noticed my ever increasing list of craft blogs (and those are just one's I have time to add a button for) I have a growing addiction to all things crafty.... Ok, I have an addiction to stalking blogs about all things crafty. I am dipping my toes in too, but I definitely read more than I do. I have been in love with making cute quilts for a while and now that I have Livvy, she is getting all kinds of cute things made for her. My poor boys have been soooo deprived! I feel guilty and giddy at the same time when I'm making stuff. Right now I'm making my first dress for Liv for Easter. I pulled one of her dresses out and made a patter as best I could. I though for sure I had picked an easy on to copy.... Shirring and ruffles? Easy? Sure. Putting them all together and having it straight and cute looking, not so much! But, it's coming together.

And then my super talented SIL has made me fall in love with Modge Podge. I stink at it, but it's fun to try and come up with cute things to cover in cute paper and glue and make a huge mess in the process! Oh, and now that I have a Cricut (and I totally figured out how to cut (some) fabric with it!!!!) I'm going to be in even more trouble!!

So enough of the inane ramblings of an addict. I've got to go open and Etsy shop to make some money for my ever increasingly expensive addiction.
