How do you do that? I want to learn to.....???

I have my moments... of craftiness.  It's usually of the digital kind but. ...As my husband likes to say...I'm a computer geek. (he says it in the most loving way I assure you...maybe even a little envious..but I digress)

I have a handy dandy Cricut machine that I LOVE to get out and use to make homemade cards or crafts.  I have a sewing machine that rarely gets used..(I have guilt).    I need ideas and inspiration to get me going...

Because I'm not one of those- "naturally" crafty know the ones who Go to Canton Trade Days or Hobby Lobby and see a cool thing they want in their house then go home and recreate it for less than 1/2 the cost.  Yeah..I'm not one of those people.  I need a pattern, I need step by step instructions.  I don't mind taking the time to make something homemade...I enjoy it actually...but GIVE ME INSTRUCTIONS!  I can't create these things out of thin's just not in my's not..I'm most certainly lacking the "create things from thin air" gene when it comes to crafts.  (now cooking that's a different ballgame!) 

Instead- I peruse the internet...researching looking for cool crafty creatively inspiring websites.   And..since it's not my nature to be selfish...well not without cool crafty creatively inspiring websites anyway!  I thought I'd share some that are my favorites , right here...on Mommily Ever After..I'm also including some great websites that give fun ideas for hosting parties and get togethers...I JUST LOVE THIS's a website -sharing- orama ...Here you go:
