100 books!

Hi everybody! Today Crafting Japanese passed 100 books posted! And who knows how many projects. *Thanks So Much* for the great reception, and especially thanks to all the people in the ever-growing list of contributors. It is so fun for me to do!

Just a reminder, if you've made something you'd like posted, please email me a link (craftlog @ huangfamily . com). I post emailed things usually within a week. For the weblogs I read, if you post something, I bookmark it and work through the list whenever I have some spare time + no emailed links (like, say, today when I was home sick). Please don't get mad and think I don't like you if you don't see your project posted! I've been behind on the updating ever since I started this thing. Also, remember I am only one woman and can only track so many weblogs, so I really appreciate the tip-offs from readers for sites I might otherwise not know about.
