Is anyone else having trouble figuring out which item to go on what day? I gotta say, I almost want her to just open it all! Aaaaaahhhh!

This is quite the conundrum for me.

YES!!  But I had the same problem last year.  I had no idea what I wanted to do on what day.  And - do you feel like all your projects are somewhat equal?  Like, I don't feel like I have one project that screams I'D BE AWESOME FOR DAY 13!!!  I wish I could just have MissingWillow open everything at one time!  That would save the trouble of having to figure out the days.  Wink  Grin

Working on my container today, hoping to finish later tonight. I have a few of the days done, and packed up ready for the container to be done!

Yeah.... there's not a frozen snowball's chance in Hades that all of my stuff is going to fit in the container. Sorry Jill! I think you won't mind, though.  Wink

Aw man, how sad for me!  Wink

So, as promised, I didn't do any crafting and instead helped people move all weekend.  How fun for me, right?  I did finish a project on friday that turned out really cute.  My sister looked at me and was like, that's gonna be fun to ship.  Well, yeah, like I want this to be easy?  This one item alone probably wouldn't fit into the "one container".  The rest probably will, well the rest for each person and their own container.  Lol.  If I had to fit it ALL into one, that would never happen.  Right now they all seem to fit into a paper grocery bag, but I'm not even close to done yet, and they aren't wrapped yet, and that takes up even more space.

Here's hoping for a more productive week.  Next week will be the most productive off all, since I have two days off than I normally have off, due to my boss being out of town that week.  Then there is labor day, as well!  WEEEE!

I am having so much trouble with spray paint the last few days. I've ruined 2 frames. Maybe its too hot. The paint keeps getting all scrunched up and goopy. WTF. I could have bought a really awesome prepainted frane for what I have spent trying to diy one. Oh well, deep breath. I'll make it work.

Spray paint and I do not get along well either!  I haven't tried it in a while since the last time it turned out all wonky!

So I figured out how to fix the spray paint issue and finished one item. I have 5 days complete, 3 almost done and 5 days planned out. Pretty happy with my progress so far.

Got a huge chunk done, planned everything out for days! So basically I just have to get my bootie in gear and get it all done.

I kinda spread my items out so that if my partner and I do 31 days I have 31 single items, and if we do 13 days then I will just group them all back together =]

out of my 31 items I have like 13.5 done ahah

Going to Wizarding World soon, and in need of some swag! A bag to carry stuff that is HP while there would be AMAZING

I finished 2 sets of items which will go for 2 days. When I showed one of them to my mom she was like, "your giving that away?! You should keep it!" I think my partner will like it. One hint, it's partially bat themed.

Also, I have a system for picking days. If I make a homemade food item that's day one. A bag is day two, then home decor comes next. After that it's any other wearables and plushies.
