Love all the projects! Those tins are great!!

I am finally able to post some pictures!!

I made my first multimedia piece - it took me a lot longer than I expected, but I am pleased with how it turned out!
In the 2012 craft-a-long I posted some painted papers that I made:
I used them (plus one or two more) and made this:

The quote is: "And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair" ~Kahlil Gilbran

Here is a closer view of the flowers

I finally etched! (I posted about it and the disaster I had while trying it here).

Some bookmarks made with random repurposed jewelry:

These are going to go to a little girl who loves hair goodies - the bead one was made in 2012 (It frustrated me at the time so I don't think I ever counted it  Roll Eyes ). I painted the bobby pins with nail polish. The three flowers in the back are not completed and will be used in a different project. I think I will also make a ribbon hanger for these, but we will see if I have the time.

I finally finished the angel necklace for my mother-in-law! The little angel with the purple bead has a loose jump-ring placed over the bead head so it looks like it has a loose halo. I think it is my favorite part (which no one will ever see without it being pointed out!)

and a snowman necklace for my sister-in-law (small photo since it isn't very exciting)

Love the angel necklace! Are they different colors for a reason? Do they represent children or grandchildren? Love the halo on the purple one!

Yes, sheepblue--I entered you into the challenge because I knew those bags were WIPS from 2012! Wink

Mio--you come up with the most interesting crochet patterns and colors, even if they are "fails"!

llisaredd--Love your twine tins!  Perfect way to have those pencils and markers ready to go!

dawnstrees--your paper from last year with the flowers is just beautiful!!  I also love your etchings...

And, just FYI, Missmoppet chose to receive a couple of ravelry knitting patterns as her random drawing prize!  Such cute patterns, that I hope to see posted here! Cheesy

Here is the prayer flag I made for a swap--mixed stuff--inks, canvas, batik, thread, stone button, twig, etc.:

fantasticmio, I really like your interesting layouts!  I am trying to learn to crochet, and hope to do my first granny square today. I've pulled out (frogged??) the others I've been practicing on.   Cheesy

I've finished a couple of projects, just need to get pics up.

always that flag is beautiful. i pin it!

no actual finished object yet but the blanket i am knitting is about to finish. i already started another one with the left over yarn...

BUT I cut the length of my hair and cut bangs. this is something i'd never dare before. it turned nice (thank god!), i also sat down and hennaed my hair as my white hair was showing disgustingly (bad genes Sad ) i don't know if this counts as a project but here it goes:

Oh yes, for my prize in this swap I recieved two awesome ravelry patterns.  I am super excited to get to making them.  And post them in this thread too.  Thank you kindly alwaysinmyroom! 
The patterns are on Ravely and so lovely!  1-Arachnid. by Karen Fournier and 2-The Failynn Fox Cowl by the velvet acorn

Also, I love that prayer flag alwaysinmyroom.  I actually had no clue what one was and now seeing it, its so pretty.

Okay, I now have a project to add to the contest.  I actually did it earlier this year and totally forgot about it.  But it definanlty counts.  Its a project for myself yet, its also a way to store/display tiny little yarn balls of random yarn.  I took our old gumball machine, made tiny yarn balls out of scrap yarn and ta-da!  Scrap yarn storage for the home and a craft project for me.  Well, for the house but, you get the idea.


Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Here is the hoody I made for my Mom.  Began as a Christmas present but finally got finished last night.


Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.
