What a great idea!  Everything I make winds up with someone else - even those things I intended for my own home!  So, here goes my list - most of which is on my 50 Projects 2013 list, but this way I'll have a better shot of actually keeping some things for myself:

1.  Fused pot melt sculpture piece with stand
2.  Fabric Bowl - this might be a bit of a stretch
3.  Relief mapped glass wall art
4.  Fenway Park Coasters
5.  B Nice Wall Hangings with logos - media?
6.  Reproduction of boys' 3' x 4' finger painting - mosaic, fused, or other?
7.  Refinish Kitchen Island
8.  Driftwood windchimes
9.  Large ichiban vase vessel
10. Centerpiece bowl - pottery (perhaps with a glass center?)
11. Quilt from the boys' old denim
12. Fused pendant lights for kitchen

yay, I can't wait to see some of the self-spoiling Grin 

Knowing how I usually operate I almost feel like we should have some kind of oath "I promise to keep ______ and not give it away to the first person that admires it"

This is a great idea, I never make stuff for myself.  I bought flannel for pj pants and it's been just sitting there for TWO years!  Here I go:

1 - pj pants (at least two pair)
2 - stenciled shirts (have a load that I want)
3 - recycle spice rack to nail polish holder
4 - finish pumpkin scene
5 - put together small dollhouse kit and finish the inside
6 - photo name dealie for my office (photo of each letter)
7 - dry erase to do list for office

I know, I have the hardest time thinking of what I want to make myself, it feels somewhat decadent lol.

obnoxious rings = bold, garish rings that are borderline ugly Wink  conversation pieces, for sure Wink
