Crikey!  If I actually get all of this done I will be amazed!  But, better to have tried and failed then to sit there and stare at the things saying "where do I begin?"
Ah, if only I felt that crafts for swaps "counted"... I would have 50+ done already.  I have done hardly anything here though.

dewshinesdopp, there is no due date and there are no rules, or finish dates. It's just a bunch of craftsters sharing what we do. There's a lot less nagging, than bragging going on, but not having anything to post regularly always shames me into crafting mode better than nagging would.

Feel free to add and edit your list as the year goes on too - we are very easy going over here in the 50 projects thread Cheesy

Welcome to all the new faces!  Kiss (Oooh, cute new NYE smileys!)

me, too!  So many great things!

Hey, if any of you are up for it this year, it would be great to put "making a tutorial" of what you are good at for Craftster to share as one of your projects!  We are all about tutorials and sharing! Smiley  Good experience as well, giving instructions, logical progression, writing...go for it and share a link here!

I have never written a tutorial before but if I ever post something that someone wants more info/how-to I could give it a whirl. Smiley

When I did the Mini 13 Days of Halloween last year with MissingWillow she said that she'd love to see a tutorial on how I covered her candle holder/candy dish with polymer clay.  So I may work on writing up a tutorial for that.  Smiley

Sooooo  in avoiding doing work for school tomorrow (so NOT ready for break to be over!) I'm going to take pictures of some of WIPs and upload them!

YAY!  I am pretty new here, posting comments, but no projects as of yet.  DH will be thrilled to see me making things instead of just collecting the stuff to make the things.  By joining, maybe I will actually have space in my craft room to do the actual crafting!  Thanks for letting me join!  Smiley
