It's a new year, and there are some new ideas here at the craftalong that could - chugga chugga, chugga chugga, toot toot!  You may choose between last years themes or this year's themes:

January - Scavenger 'make it from what you find
February - Evil _____________
March - Roadkill / Spooky animals
April - food with faces
May - ye olde times
June - pixelated
July - Inspired by a celebrity baby name
August - Wing-ed Things - anything can have wings!
September - Childhood Heroes or Misfit Superheroes
October - Misfit Toys
November - movie quotes
December - Add a Santa Hat (anything can wear a santa hat!)





So, I know it might be too late for 2009, but I have totally not been in the mood for Christmas this year and I may want to rectify that for 2010.  Since Rudolph and Santa haven't been doing it for me, I was thinking we could start a craftalong for different (oddly) themed Christmas ornaments.  I was thinking:

January: Zombies
February: Pirates vs. Ninjas
March: Mustaches
April: Internet Memes: LOLcats, Demotivators, Homestar Runner, O RLY, Ima let you finish, etc...
May: Robots vs. Aliens
June: Voodoo dolls
July: Cute 'n Spooky
August: She blinded me with Science (Cells, planets, organs, calculus, etc.)
September: Underwear? Under there!
October: Creative Creatures
November: um.  Hair.
December: Wild card - do what you want, but show your tree!



So, anyone want to do this with me?  Anyone?  Bueler? Bueler?

like the idea. sadly, i don't have a use for weird ornaments.

+ so far, i've seen hilarious easter bunny christmas ornaments. eggs and everything.
+ and what about a "recycling" topic? like, i don't know, maybe keys from old keyboards  on a string.
+ organs? knitted kidneys and tiny hearts ...

More people, yay!

Ok, since it is the first, this month is zombies.  Of course, this includes: zombie santas with bags of organs, zombie cats, zombie protection kit ornaments, if it is a zombie, or kills a zombie, or is food for a zombie, it's game for an ornament.

Love; it will not betray you, dismay, or enslave you. It will set you free, to be more like the man you were made to be. There is a design, an alignment, a cry of my heart to see the beauty of love as it was made to be.
