Oooh the projects from the silhouette machine are fantastic. I need me one of those!

I love the lockets so much, the little books are adorable.

I wonder if I could handle loom knitting, I can crochet but add another stick and I'm lost! But I love the look of knitted projects so much and those gloves look so cozy!

I finished project #4!
My in-laws got me an awesome set of Banksy coasters after I made my sister-in-law walk all around London to find a piece by him, so I thought they deserved a nice holder for displaying them on my coffee table. I first tried popsicle sticks but the coasters were too large and I hate trying to cut popsicle sticks, so I perused pinterest for ideas and settled on trying to weave a box out of newspaper strips.
(It's a bit wonky, can I say that weaving is very hard and I needed about 6 more hands?!)

Also, the goal book and this forum is definitely keeping me motivated this year! I like being able to see a record of my daily habits and progress on all my goals!

I love your goal books so much! All the pages are beautiful and you must put so much time into preparing each page. I hope this year is very productive for you and I hope you post updates on the pages as you start meeting your goals!

I always keep track of my swap items in my count, otherwise I'd never get to 50!

Renstar I love your hat! Such pretty yarn Smiley
ZombieLili Your drawings are gorgeous! Love the style

I finished a headband my coworker wanted for bringing her soon-to-be-born newborn home from the hospital in. Had to wing it but I like how it turned out!

(I don't have a baby, so a giant wine glass had to step in for modeling it!)  Grin

Ah! That Toothless earbud case is ADORABLE! I also love the embroidered hoodie!

My first project of 2016 was to create a Goal Book inspired by (mostly plagiarized from) Smeddley, who created this amazing Goal Book last year!

You can see the full post with pictures of all the pages and description here

My second project was my own Happiness Box to fill with happy moments from every day in 2016 so if I'm having a bad day I can look back on all the little sources of happiness I've experienced this year!

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / 2016 Goal Book on: January 02, 2016 09:43:42 PM
Last year Smeddley made a post of the Goal Book she made for 2015 and I was inspired! I kept a tab open to her book all year so when 2016 rolled around I could do something similar to keep motivated for the year.

See her amazing goal book here!

So I borrowed ideas for her pages, but then made some of my own as well to fit my goals for 2016.

My pages are:
1. 16 New Books Read
2. 2016 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge Book List
3. 16 New Movies Watched
4. Movies Owned Before 2016 Watched
    - I have too many movies I bought and haven't watched yet!
5. 16 Big Projects Completed
6. 16 WIPS Completed
7. My 50 Projects of 2016 list
8. 16 New Places Experienced
9. 16 New Restaurants Tried
10. 16 New Recipes Made
11. 16 Letters Written
12. 16 Sketches and Paintings Made
13. 1/2 Hours Exercised
14. Drank 8 Glasses of Water a Day
    - The last two I will put a gold star each day I achieve the goal and once I gain certain amounts of stars I will gain a reward like a candy bar or something
15. 16 Random Acts of Kindness Done
16. 16 Songs Learned on the Guitar
17. 16 Guerrilla Art pieces done
18. Miscellaneous Goals
19. Fruit and Veggie Sticker Fun Page! (My favorite page of Smeddley's original!)

Photo dump below!

Thanks Smeddley for making your awesome, inspiring book!

Loving the various ATC's, I think I need to try my hand at some!
All the Cabinet of Curiosities things are great, I Want them all in my house, but not after dark.  Wink

I have been lacking motivation, but I have forced myself to make some things and be productive!

1) Crocheted hat for my coworkers newborn.

2) Hoopla for my husband as a Valentine's gift, the words are from a letter I gave him before we started dating 7 years ago cause he couldn't figure out I had a crush on him.  Cheesy

Then, I have been loving all the clay projects and really want to learn all of the secrets to making such beautiful things, so I whipped out my teeny stash of clay and played around.

3) Fairy Door

4) Khoshekh the Levitating Cat from the podcast Welcome to Night Vale. The story is Khoshekh is a cat that levitates 4 ft from the floor in the men's bathroom of the radio station, and I modeled him after some fanart. He now lives in my bathroom on top of an outlet that is 4 ft. from the floor.

This is making me realize I should build a light box for pictures, cause my apartment is dark!

Goktrose, your pan holders look good, especially the first one because it's colorful. I am wondering how you use them. Do you leave them on the handle while cooking?

yoopidou, I used cotton yarn so it is supposed to stay on the whole time you cook on the stove and it will be fine. Definitely a complete no-no to use acrylic though, then you'd have quite a melty yarn mess!
