It used to be any chance I could. :-) I can still be swayed but a Micheals coupon though. This year, I'm focusing on using up my huge stash. Or at least putting a dent in it.

By taking baby steps, doing something every day, I will make my goal THIS year. =)

Lexi, do you have craft stores that sell Alene's Tacky Glue? It works well with quilling :)

My sister does those scarves but she learned to crochet them. I like them better crocheted. Lighter weight and lacier/frillier. I own a bunch of them in a bunch of colors that she made for me. I love wearing them to church.
