I love the Featured Projects links!  I spend WAY too much time on here, yet I still miss lots of cool stuff.  I wouldn't have thought there were so many things I hadn't seen yet, but I just checked out the new Featured Projects, and wow, how did I miss them??

Never a shortage of inspiration and coolness on Craftster!

Yay!  I'm glad you like this.  It takes me a few hours to compile them which is why I only do it like every couple of weeks.  But I'm glad they are appreciated!

One thing that has helped me a lot is that not too long ago I added that "This Rocks!" button so people can suggest projects they really love.  So the featured projects end up being ones that I choose and then the most popular ones that people suggest using the "This Rocks!" button.

I :love: the featured projects. I have been so busy lately that I don't have tons of time to spend surfing Craftster  Cry but when I can cruise by I get to shoot right over to the tres cool stuff I would normally miss out on!

And having your project featured just makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. ~grin~

Well... "they" is me -- Leah.  Wink  And I try to change them every two weeks.

Every time I put new featured projects up it actually takes me a couple of days to do it.  I have to sort through all of the projects I like and all the suggestions I  get (via the "this rocks" button) and then I have to make small thumbnails and write the code that displays them in all the various areas...

So it's pretty time consuming.  But I really like doing it.  It's always so satisfying when I get 12 new little beauties up there!

Oh and coincidentally I'm working on getting 12 new ones up today!  Grin
