Hi all,

This idea originated with Tappanga http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19998.0. I have tried to contact her regarding continuing this into 2007, but I have not heard back. The last time she posted on Craftster was in early December. I hope all is well with her but I just wanted to start a 2007 thread because I'd like to see this idea continued!

(Copy and pasted text below)

These were the themes for 2006:

Jan: Ornaments
Feb: Sewn gifts
Mar: Jewelry/Book thongs
Apr: Magnets
May: Candles
Jun: Stencil/Iron-on
Jul: Craft kits
Aug: Decoupage
Sep: Scarves/hats
Oct: Soap
Nov: Gift wrap/Bows/Tags
Dec: Food gifts

This is an unswap! Keep everything you make for gifts at Christmas. Sign up at any point that you'd like. If you don't want to do whatever craft is assigned to a month, feel free to subsititue with another craft. The main point is to keep crafting and making gifts to avoid the malls as much as possible at Christmas time.


Anyone who wants to join the Craftalong Unswap, email tap_panga-subscribe@yahoogroups.com . Thanks!
Don't just post here that you'd like to join with your email address, because I probably won't see it (sorry but it's honest).

Also, feel free to post here any questions you have about a craft, or pictures of your finished crafts so we can oooh and aaaah.

(End of copy and pasted text)

I think it would be fun if we came up with a few new craft themes this year - I'm all for handmade stuffed toys. Anyone else have suggestions?

I love this idea and have just signed up!

Some ideas for craft themes:
- bath/beauty products (not just soap)
- handmade notebooks/journals
- Xmas cards
- stationery sets
- home/office decor (switchplates, picture frames, bulletin boards, etc.)

I'd love for us to be able to share tutorials at the beginning of each month, especially for crafty areas that I'm not so familiar with...

yes!  I already started.  here's one ornament - a crocheted snowflake.  I want to do a bunch to use as present toppers, so I haven't stiffened it yet.

Yay! Finally a few people responded Smiley Instead of modifications to the "master list" since I don't want to stray too far from the original idea in case Tappanga resurfaces...how about we have a wildcard month. Say one of the categories has a craft that you truly have no desire to take up/don't have the supplies/loathe, etc. We can come up with our own categories on said month and post about it here. It would be lovely if we could identify those posts saying, hey this is my wildcard category and so on. What do you all think?

wild card sounds good, because there are some things i don't know how to do... then again, it could be the excuse to try something new.

i started last night. my dson and i got out the glass ornaments i got on clearance right after christmas and we started painting the insides with acrylic paints. they need a second "coat", so i'll post pictures when they're all done.

ps. my son had such a great time!!! i felt it was a blessing to spend that time with him... without him wanting to play video games (he's almost 12 )

My ornaments are definitely going to be LATE! Ha! I swear I think I have the post holiday blahs - I have not felt creative all month. I think I'm going to hop to it tomorrow though!
