On the 8th day of Christmas…

(ok, pretend this is December 20th… I’m a tad behind)

…my true love gave to me…

the inspiration to craft again! I haven’t been all that crafty in recent months.  Crafting has always been a great way for me to relax.  However I just haven’t found the time – or should I say made the time – to get creative in recent months. It’s a goal of mine to reconnect with my creative side, and relearn how to relax…

So here are eight of the things that I want to make… I figure if I start now, they will be ready for 2011!
