New Craft Blog!!

I started a blog for all my crafts last January and never did anything with it. I had every intention to but just never got around to it. I had one post on it and decided to delete it and just start a new one with my new name...The Crabby Crafter!

I am in the process of uploading all my projects now and then will keep it up to date. I hope you enjoy it! Don't forget to leave me a comment!
