I've been pouring a lot of time and effort into my altered book lately, and I think I need to take a step back. One of the strengths - and weaknesses - is that there's never an end product. Or progress to show. Or anything. So all this time disappears into the book and there's nothing - except a partially defaced book - to show for it.

I love the process, but I think I need some product, too.

I started using Google Reader (a wonderful service, btw) last year around April, and have been starring all the crafty diys and tutorials I want to try. Not even a year later, I have 346 starred items. Granted, this includes the occasional lolcat and xkcd comic or two, but when you consider all the projects in my queue on Ravelry, you realize I could create a different thing a day for a year without any further input. Even from current ongoing projects or my various inspiration files.
Unfortunately, these days it seems I can't even get time to go to the bathroom by myself, so the backlog will continue to multiply . . .

At least it's fun to scroll through.
