You can do it rylnn![/color]

Thanks!

I already have something to add to the list.  A year ago, my partner bought our daughter a toy umbrella stroller.  Of course, it immediately broke.  I keep meaning to make a new cloth seat for it...a year later it is still sitting in the closet.  

Potato candy sounds very interesting.  You should let is know how it turns out. Smiley

Just a really great Idea- A handmade book to keep track of my 50 projects. This way I can draw what I want it to look like, make notes and carry it around so when inspiration strikes I can write it down.

You guys could do it to- modify it if you don't want to make the book yourselves (I have always wanted to, and constantly start making one but never finish.) you could make a knit/sewn/crocheted/woven cover for it, or paint/draw one on too.

I love taro root!

Last year I only posted foods that were projects like making pumpkin rolls for gifts...I normally do not cook much but I like weird foods! Cheesy

I am definitely going to save the wool for felting...those are great suggestions!

I figure I'll start my 50 projects before 2011. It's winter break now so I have a lot of free time, and I'm itching to start.

hngoodlett- stenciled tights sound awesome!

I tried that many times, it end up being super messy with scribbles and notes all over, and i tend to jumble up new ideas/inventions in it when i haven't finished the first one... Finally now all my scribbles are written in my lappy and the designs are all piled up in a file box. (Result : I never look back at my designs but whats in the lappy are neat to the eyes.)

Oh right! I just remembered that I tried it once and it didn't work. Oh well, I'm still going to make a book.

I tend to check my CAL boards every other day and I read a cpl pages cause I think if I go back too far the posts almost seem irrelevant to the top posts. I want to keep up with this one more this coming year, and I think It'd be easier if I have a more browser friendly phone. Sad  Anyone else have this problem?  I seem to be simplistic with my phone, it texts, and calls and takes decent pictures so I don't have to lug around my camera, and I like it that way. But when I can't get to the computer...my phone's browser leaves something to be desired. :/ 

Luckily I don't really have to keep up with 2010's board since I finished my 50! XD
