My crafty list of things to do

Blog / 26 March 2012

I'm a bit of a perpetual list maker, in just about everything from meal planners to shopping lists to  what I'm going to do each day. So I thought I would share my crafty list of projects that I want to complete and also projects that have been completed already. 
The satisfaction of crossing something off a list is obviously gratifying but I started to notice recently that by crossing lots of things off and starting a new list means its easy to forget what you've done. 

Do here is my list (in no particular order) with lots of links and pictures, I hope it gives you some inspiration for new projects and to start your own list!
