A lenient twist on the "item a day" craft challenge
The "item a day" craft challenge has always intrigued me. But it's a huge commitment! Lots of crafters have work, families, and other obligations that may prevent them from crafting every single day. So I decided to see if I could make 7 things a week. Let's see how long I can keep this up.

Week 40: Hammer Time!
Only 12 more weeks to go! It seems impossible to me that I've managed to get this far. And while I haven't been all that great at blog updating, I've been sticking to the crafting portion just fine! As another treat to myself to get thought this crazy busy month, I've decided to break out some of my metalworking tools and go to town! nothing helps relieve frustration better than being able to (productively) hit things with hammers. : )
