This looks like a really great idea. I love doing paper crafts and this is the first forum I have found with this medium. Although I am going to library school to be a librarian, and altering books may be frowned upon, I feel that this doesn't truly destory the book it just uses it in a different way
I think I need to join this if I can. I really need motivated to start some new crafts and get used to my sewing machine, which I got months ago and still have issues with.

These are all the things I want to make over the summer but need help. I especially want to make a bag of some type that actually comes out right. Mine are always a little unfinished looking, any tips would be appreciated. I also have trouble with my sewing machine, thread breaking or needle breaking, any tips on sewing machine use also appreciated;)
I got into the sock monkey craze and found these super cute pink kitty socks to use. This is my second sock monkey ever and I had to make it all by hand since the kittens were embroidered, causing the threads to get caught up in my machine. I do love pink, and hope to make more stuff in this color, but it seems the month has gone by so fast. Hmmm, yellow?
