My project is not all the original but I am hoping it will make 2015 run a bit smoother. I know I am not the only one who does better if they have a list, checking things off is so satisfying!

I pulled this window out of a neighbors trash when they moved out. Only 3 windows were still intact, I took the broken glass out of the others and attached wire with eye hooks and mini-binder clips.

I finished up some stash item for the Use What You Have Swap but my big accomplishment has been organizing, and I use that term loosely, my craft room.

My ultimate goal is to pare down my stash enough so everything fits into the closet. But for now everything is off the floor and somewhat easily accessible so I am ok with it.

My very embarrassing before, everything was just spewing out of the closet space. Not everything was craft supplies, some of it was books and knick-knacks that I hadn't unpacked after almost 2 years of living in this house. I hated going in there to craft, even going in to tackle the mess was a challenge for me.

And the after, I mostly know where things are at least enough it doesn't take me 30 minutes to find an item. Oh I also ripped up the carpet, it was way past it's prime.

I made some name tags for my dogs today. They look much better in person. I used nail polish as a resist, and I want to experiment more with some other mediums.  I need to order some more blanks, these are some stainless steel ones I had in my stash.

Thank you for the tute!

Here is my wonderful items from rantyhippie.

A crocheted gold fish. I love fish but I hate taking care of their tank so I never get them. This little guy is perfect for me, I love his big fancy tail.

A hoopla, which I am having the hardest time deciding where to hang. I should put it in my craft room because wow ya'll the mess in there but my projects "travel" and often set up residency on any flat surface it can find so maybe I should put it in my living room.

And a little adipose stuffy, an adorable little creature made of fat for any non Doctor Who fans.

I finished up a tiny Yoda hat for my friends new baby. I had so many awesome knit and crochet projects planned and was so excited because my friend and I have the same geeky taste. Alas new baby hates to be warm, my friend told me she can barely put clothes on him in the house because he runs so warm.

dulcetI 4 skeins is still a big dent even without finishing an entire box. Good job.

I just finished up a project I started years ago then lost in moving and the ensuing craft room chaos that is my space. Why did I have so many googly eyes in my stash? Well I have no idea but somehow it happened. The frame is made out of cardboard wrapped in fabric and is a bit wonky, oh well. It is inspired by this project http://adiamondinthestuff.com/2011/08/googly-eye-halloween-frame.html I found via pinterest.

Wile E Songdog I really like the blue your partner picked.

Bushbaby your partner did an excellent first time project.

I received my prayer flags a day early! All are things I want to remind my self to do/think this year. My partner said she's not entirely happy with them but I still like them.

Lovely shawl! It looks very soft, and the color is wonderful.

I joined the use what you have swap so I have been looking at my stash even more and oh boy I need to figure out a organizing system.

I made some prayer flags for the fake swap craftalong. I had envisioned fancy embroidered elaborate flags but I remembered that I am not the biggest fan of embroidering so instead went a simpler route. Most everything is stamped, I have had most of these stamps for years and this project was the first time I have used many of them. All the flags are things/goals I want to do this year.

Nice hat's that1girl!

While sorting my fabric I found a yard of dogs doing yoga that I had forgotten all about. Given the theme I made some bags for my exercise matts. I didn't have enough to make a strap for the second one so I grabbed some random fabric sitting by my desk and braided a cord for a drawstring.

I saw an idea on pinterest for yarn scraps, they rolled the yarn into tiny balls then arranged them in a shadow box as wall art.

Today I cleared out a small bag of barretts and a little bit of beads from my stash. Everything is for the conservation booth at work, the feathers are from our lesser flamingos.
