a crafty find

My New Year's resolution was to become more crafty and take time to create. Who knew that it would become an obsession of sorts?!

While grocery shopping today, I stopped in my favorite aisle {magazines} as I do every week to check out the wedding magazines. Today was not unusual in that I own every wedding magazine that caught my eye.

I did however spy some delicious crafting magazines. I browsed for what seemed like 30 minutes but it probably was only 25 minutes-but whose counting?

I found some fun reads. I wrote them all down, scurried home, and checked out the websites.

One of my favorite finds today is the Crafts 'N Things magazine. Their website is just as lovely and they have videos and tutorials out the wazoo! Here is a picture from one of their latest "Back To School" tutorials.
Create your own mini-chalkboards! How cute are these? I can think of so many things to do with mini-chalkboards! 

But-my absolute favorite part of this website is that there is a calendar with all the local listings for craft shows, bizarres, classes, etc. in my area. YEEAAA! That's what's up!

What did you do today? Have you found anything really exciting lately?

Your use of the phrase "delicious crafting magazines" is wonderful.
