I know that there are much better sewers, gardeners, artists, and tutorial writers out there, but what if I just add things in occasionally in a simple, project-based way? I know that helps me out when I'm trying to learn something new. I never remember how to do something unless I've needed to do it for a certain project. You can tell me 84 times how to make a clipping mask in PS but until I've wanted that particular result, it doesn't mean anything to me.
Anyway, I think I would enjoy at least documenting my projects in a more organized, start-to-finish way for my own benefit, so I'll try it and see how it goes.
