Craft Lightning – Day 3 Roundup!

We’ve already made it to day 3 of Craft Lightning Week! I love all the fast crafting inspiration that comes from all these fabulous bloggers! It is amazing that just about every medium and every crafty point of view really has an opportunity to create a fast craft. Not every project has to take forever. Sure, there is something to be said for a painting, quilt, sculpture or piece of jewelry that took hours, days, weeks, or even months to create. I have a stitching project that I imagine will take years to finish. But being able to craft and have a finished piece in less time than it takes to watch an episode of Big Bang Theory is pretty impressive… even more impressive is that many of the crafts being shared this week can be completed in the time it takes to watch the commercials in Big Bang Theory (assuming that you’re not fast forwarding through them on your DVR).

Here are today’s Craft Lightning fast crafts from bloggers around the interwebs – they’re all joining in on Craft Lightning this week… if you’d like to join in as well, be sure to link up in the Craft Lightning Linky.

Adding decor pieces to your home can be expensive – that’s why it is great to include a few (or quite a few) knockoffs. These Anthro knockoff letters would look great in almost any space – get the tutorial from Craft Quickies.
