I am no longer a complete refugee crafter! For months all of my current projects have been cluttering my kitchen floor. I finally decided that enough was enough and I needed to find a better place to put them other than their previous home in my son's closet where they were unreachable during that glorious time of day when I get everything done called "naptime."
