She's crafty

And by "she" I mean someone that isn't me.  Because I'm not.  Are you?

But the thing is, recently, I want to be.  Don't tell my husband that.  He would cringe and run screaming from the room.  But I do.  I found my sewing machine the other day.  Dug it out of The Garage That Eats Everything, dusted it off, and made this:

Noodle asked me to make it for her.  It's a turtle.  Can you tell?  How about from this angle?

I found this pattern at one of my current favorite blogs, Make It and Love It.  That woman can make anything.  No, seriously, anything.

So I made this cute turtle for Noodle.  Now I have to make one for Nugget, since he keeps taking hers, and then she takes it back, and then much screaming ensues, and then I have to go start drinking hide somewhere so that I don't loose my mind. 

But all in all I am just not the crafty type.  So why is it that I am drawn to all these craft type sites?  Here is a list of some of the ones that I have been visiting of late:

Make It and Love It - We discussed this.  Go take a look.  It's seriously impressive.  Retail quality, right out of her brain.  Well, technically out of her brain by way of her sewing machine.  It's awesome.

Mmmcrafts - I am completely in love with the Baby Bunny doll she made on here.  I also am completely insane for committing to make Noodle one of these for her tooth that is currently loose.  I am so, so in over my head.

Rebecca Danger - I don't knit, but just looking at this site makes me want to learn.  Also, she just had a baby, and I love babies.  So this is an all around good site for me.

Nice Girl Notes - This might not actually qualify as a "craft" site, but it is probably my favorite blog to read right now.  And she does do a lot of craft type stuff in between her very funny, very right on posts.  I love to lurk there... I finally got brave and actually commented on one of her posts.  Maybe someday I'll do it again.

Corina Nielsen Photography - Again, I don't know how much this qualifies as craft, but Corina is one of the most talented photographers I have ever seen.  And the craft part that gets me is the store on her site.  It's chock full of graphic design goodness that I wish I could do.  Amazing, that's what.

There are others, but I have to save something to talk about later, right?  Check these out and let me know what you think.

What sites do you go to for inspiration in the crafty department?  Lay 'em on me, cuz I need all the help I can get!
