Maybe I'll Stick With This...

Lots of people have blogs these days, and lots of people post on those blogs about the things they make. Some even post tutorials. These posts often include phrases like, I just threw this together or It's so easy! or All you need to do is...

These blogs used to send me straight into a shame spiral. Just thinking about all the projects everyone else was finishing made my soul hurt. But then I realized that I, too, am prolific at something: The number of things I DON'T finish could fill Bloggerville...or at least one hut in it.

So this is a blog for celebrating the ghosts of projects past. Maybe they'll leave me alone once I share them with the Internet.

um...you are amazing. the only reason i ever started finishing things was because i felt guilty about not updating my blog. HA. that's not working so much anymore.

I'm sure this is one of the reasons my sissie thinks you are amazing. I have BINS of unfinished craft projects. It drives my husband crazy.

Thanks for putting it all into words for me! Now the big question (now that I've ready everything from Oct 2009 now backwards): does it help you NOT be depressed and grumpy by blogging about it? Cause if so - I'll start my own blog for the same things(and never update it.
