I was feeling a little burned out on paper crafting so I've decided to dig out a bunch of beads I purchased while on vacation in June. I also broke out the soldering iron, wire and chain. We'll see what I come up with.

Holy Moly this took forever just to laminate and put the pages in the binder. There has GOT to be a better way. A better way to what you may ask? I saw somewhere on the Cricut forum that someone had unbound all of the books that come with the cartridges and put them in binders in alphabetical order, excluding the thirty thousand pages of basic information repeated over and over in 20 different languages. It so inspired me that I wanted to give it a try. Now I almost wish I hadn't. I know once I get all of the books situated it will actually make my life easier to find shapes I want to use, but good grief! Maybe I'm not using the right binders, maybe there are itty bitty page protectors that I can slide these things into. Maybe I should just get a laminating machine next month. Either way I really need to find an easier way to do this. Any suggestions?

1 page down, untold number left to go! Like many of my projects, this one's been in the works for years, I can't even remember how many really. if I had to guess I'd say at least 4. I'm so easily distracted by newer, shinier projects that I tend to shelve the bigger ones. I'm an instant gratification kind of girl, a craft sprinter, not a marathon crafter. Anything that threatens to take longer than a week might as well lay down and give up on getting done in the same year it's started. Sad but true. So you can imagine my delight at digging out a well preserved project and getting something done on it. This is one of the projects I promised myself I'd work on for the UWYH challenge. Yay for actually doing it!
