I don't know about you, but I have a significant number of "craft-fails." Probably because I certainly have the philosophy of the sentiment, "Make Something Today -Even if it Sucks-". I make something every day, or OK I'll admit it, I start to make something every day. I may not finish, but I do start the ball rolling. This creation by Amanda Wright featured in the new book Pinterest Perfect! Creative prompts & pin-worthy projects inspired by the artistic community of Pinterest. I think everyone should adopt this philosophy!
