When i get my project perfected how would i go about building a "Permanent project".
will i have to just encase my project (kinda bulky) or can i make it smaller????

Do a search on 'standalone arduino' .

You can make it as small as you want.  If you don't need USB interface for the final project, than its hard to get much smaller than a Promini.
For example, here is a Promini installed on a perfboard on  a wirewra socket, connected to some other parts.

When I ordered 20 prominis back in September, I didn't know as much about them, I am down to my last 2.
I think next project I might go with standalone ATmega chips, two 22pf Caps, 16 MHz crystal, and 10K pullup resistor and wire that up board like this instead (or maybe make a PCB) - all available really inexpensively from dipmicro.com. Maybe a header connector for programming. And decoupling caps.
If you don't need USB, you might also consider a bare PCB from mouser for the older serial card, fill in the thru hole parts you need (don't need true RS232? leave off the connector, transistor & other parts for it!).
