Crafting 'cause I can't help myself

I just did my 50th craft project for 2012

I am not working right now and I have serious AADD and I tend to move from project to project pretty fast.
my goal is 100+ projects

I have uploaded a ton of new photos and most all of my 50 have some photo, I just wish I had the concentration to get some big projects finished

It's been so long since I've posted, but I've been following everyone's posts regularly.  I am simply awed by everyone's creativity -- and productivity!  I don't know how you all do it all!  (And special congratualtions to meleriffic -- that baby looks like a wonderful work-in-progress!)

I've been really overwhelmed by work and family and the house, and don't seem to be able to finish anything.  I've got big outside projects (renovated porch, new front wall and garden beds) that don't seem to be going anywhere.  I have big renovation plans for inside -- re-doing the kitchen, insulating the butler's pantry with new cabinets and shelves, refinishing the main floors -- but it seems like simply keeping the house presentable is overwhelming.  (Two years in this house, and there's still a room full of boxes I haven't even unpacked!)

Knitting, my go-to craft, suffers from a lack of focus.  I have a bunch of projects that are half done but I've stalled for one reason or another.  I don't have the yarn, or I don't like the colors, or the vision --or I can't imagine why I stated them in the first place, but feel I'm too far in to just pitch them.

Even cooking -- which I have to do regularly -- seems pretty uninspired.  At least there's no one else to complain about it!

I know I'll get over this slump and be posting more regularly again, but I wanted to duck in and say how wonderfully I think everyone is doing with their own creative works.  It all looks fantastic -- and very inspirational

This was a proof-of-concept blanket that will be going to charity now that I know it works. ^_^

Here's a link to the project post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407935.0

meleriffic, that's an adorable long-term project! Good luck with her!

Skittlebub and fantasticmio, it always makes me smile when I see projects designated for charity!

Thanks for the compliments on the sock and lightbox, everyone! You guys make me happy. Smiley

I'm disappointed to say that I got 19 pages behind and still need to catch up, but I wanted to post my projects from the month as I haven't had a chance to up load anything yet.

8 crochet blocks towards my blanket:

3 tea wallets for a friend as a trade

A new kindle case for myself:

Crayon wall art for my new office

Zentangle wall art for my new office

Painted sugar skull for a friend

Yoga mat bag for myself

Gspin, you've been busy! That's going to be a great blanket. I'm jealous of your tea wallets. I tried to make one, and out of three...let's just say it's useable but it's not something I'd gift. Grin

Love those crochet blocks - can't wait to see the final blanket! And that yoga mat bag is awesome! I may need to make one of those for my mat!

Love the yoga mat bag.  I just picked up a new mat...definitely in need of a bag.  If that wasn't on my list, it is now!
