Project Field Guide

since the whole point of this blog of mine is to share creative juices (mine, yours, others i find on the internets), i thought it only fitting to have a little list or field guide (if you will) to some of the projects i’ve done or plan to do (or wish i had time or a reason to do).

some have tutorials written by me, some have tutorials done by others, and some have no tutorial at all! if the tutorial was written by someone else, the image will either link you to my post (which will have a link to the original tute) or directly to the author’s tutorial (if i didn’t actually post about it).  if there’s no tutorial, i’ll link to whatever post i mentioned the project in. but if you ask nicely, i might write one up and post a tutorial just for you!

some deal with wood-working, others with sewing, cooking, painting, renovating, etc, and some projects are just because!

DONE:

click the various images to go to my blog posts about the project or to go to the tutorial i used (if i haven’t posted about it). these are in no particular order:
