Get Crafty

Crafty people really make me sick, but it's probably because I'm so jealous of their talent. Since I'm not talented enough to do it myself, I buy from the super artsy (but regular folks like you and me) at Etsy.com. It's like the world's biggest street fair.

But you might be different. You may have that crafting gene. If so, here are some great websites and books to inspire your next creation. Have fun! And, submit a pic on Express Yourself!

Really cool post! I wish I could sew to do all those things.
