just used up 4 sheets of stickers on a piata:)  normally I make them from scratch, but with Christmas I just didn't have time, then found one ready made for $5 - that's cheaper than glue and balloons and paint, so I got it and just stuck stickers all over it to match the birthday girls theme - Sophia the First and Elsa:)  tomorrow I'll set up the scavenger hunt to find the hidden piata and then decorate the cake and then the house:)

I found these hideously ugly "sun" pinatas last spring.  I bought 2 of them at $3 each.  I tore one apart and have a "mostly finished" demon banishing symbol from the tv show supernatural.  The only party left is the edges.  It's the 'practice' one for the second.  Then one will be used for a present for DD, and the second will go in the ever-so-geektastic craft room.  Smiley 
Since they aren't finished, I guess they count as WIPs and can be posted when they are done, right?  Smiley

Everyone's cleaning stories are inspiring! I think rather than jumping into crafting this weekend, I might tackle cleaning my craft room. It's not in the worst shape it's ever been in, but it's nearly impossible to craft in regardless.

Mine is a living nightmare, and a danger to anyone who enters it.  I have been grabbing individual totes, bags, or boxes and dragging them into other rooms in order to go through them.  I have YET to tackle the kitchen table, which is still covered in crafting from post-Halloween and Christmas.  Tongue 
But, I have successfully done some cleaning and clearing so perhaps I'll tackle the table by February.  Smiley

Just started my "long term" hoopla project.  It's going to be my covering for my hope chest.  I'll post pics a little later.  Smiley

Hope Chest!  awwww that is awesome!  By destashing and staying focused, you can get that thing filled up quickly!
LOL  It's been full for twenty years!  That's where I hide all of the patterns I will never actually cut into. Tongue

I think my main goal should be to destash one thing every week by using it, and one thing each week by donating it.  that way 104 things will be destashed this year.

That's genius!  So far I haven't actually "completed" anything.  But I HAVE found more WIPs in with all of the piles and piles for the thrift store.  

My "white" thing is a table cloth for my hope chest.  I'm embroidering all over it. Smiley

It's back!  Yay!  I can redeem myself!

There are so many things on so many lists that I want to make.  It was really hard to pick just one person.  Tongue

Amazing chandelier - it does spark some posibilities... I think I need a hoopla ceiling.

LOL I was thinking the very same thing, Averia.  Smiley

on a side note...

I want to let everyone know how much I appreciate Craftster, and how much this craftalong has been helping me this year.  Every year I swear I will do stuff, and every year, depression kicks my butt and I do nothing.  I have accomplished more so far this year than I have any other- sad considering I haven't actually completed anything.  But, still..the motivation and support you folks all bring is so helpful. 
Love to you all.

Can you choose swaps that are already finished?  Or does it have to be current swaps only?

First crafting memory?  LOL...well there are two that come to mind, really.  I was young, somewhere between 3 and 6 years old and both involve my grandmother. 
The first memory is her attempting to teach me to crochet, and her being very proud of me for being able to make strings.  She probably has been looking down on me for the last 19 years saying Good lord child, is that all you can do? STILL?  Make STRINGS???"  But it was fun and she taught me to use both a needle and my fingers.  *whispers*  I still prefer to use my fingers.

The second one...Well...it was the 70s and I suspect I was 3 or so.  I don't know for sure if I was actually ~crafting~ or not, but...My grandmother and my aunt were both making items for the church craft sale.  Again, it was the 70s, so...it was sock monkeys.  LOL.  You guys are going to fall over laughing at me for this.  I remember going over to visit and there being all of these dismembered monkeys...everywhere.  They were headless and armless and legless and stuffing coming out everywhere and me screaming and crying until they got rid of them. 
To this day, I find sock monkeys cute, but vaguely terrifying.  Smiley

YAY!  I'm absolutely in.  I have tried every year, and then had depression come back and knock all inspiration out of me.  This year, my resolution is to get my house cleaned up and de-cluttered and to hopefully ease my restless mind. 
I figured that I could either take it all to my son's art teacher or a thrift store or I could try to use it.
So the plan is, destash-along and 50 projects for the year and anything left goes away.  Well...except for the stuff I can't bear to get rid of.  Tongue
