Well, since my first post seems to have worked (I really couldn't think of anything to write about at the moment I posted that:), I suppose I ought to introduce myself a little.

Hi, my name is Jen, and I live in Minnesota.

I like to do a variety of crafts, but never seem to be able to stay with one long enough to finish a project (though I'm working on that!). This is what I like to call my "circle of obsessions", and it doesn't only apply to crafts. It also applies to certain computer games and to reading fanfiction. Basically, I obsess about something non-stop for about a week or two, then move on to something else. Thus why I have a dress that is pretty much done but is yet to be hemmed and the top needs to be finished, a teddy bear sweater with only one sleeve, numerous amigurumi crochet projects left unfinished in various places throughout my room, and ideas galore for making soap but no actual ingredients purchased/actual soap produced yet.

If you didn't get it from that last paragraph, I like to: knit, crochet, and sew (though really I like the planning more than the doing), with some cross-stitching/embroidery experience on the side, and I would like to get into making soap and possibly lotion bars (the only thing stopping me on those ones is finding the ingredients. In my area, coconut oil isn't cheap, and I haven't yet convinced myself to try using lard... And I can't find any beeswax at an affordable price anywhere nearby for the lotion bars...)

Umm... that seems to be it for now, I might put some pictures of my past projects if I get around to it...

Whoo! I have a blog!

Ok, so I've just set up my "craft blog", so we'll see if I can post this in one go.
