If you are anything like me and have nothing to show people when they ask to see what you make, this is the craft along for you!  One of my crafty goals for 2013 is to make something for myself every month and KEEP it Grin

So its very simple, just post your project that you make for you and you alone every month.  It can be anything from art to clothing to something that just makes you smile, as long as you crafted it.  You have all month long to do it and can post at anytime.  You can make a wishlist or wing it, just have fun crafting for yourself.  Jump in at anytime!

Do things like my final project count? And can it be ongoing over a few months?  And I have a blanket that I've been workin on forever, but if I finish it through the year does that count too?  Some of the projects I want to make are so darn large....

1. Lettered sign for entryway
2. HP screen print shirt "I got 99 problems but a snitch ain't one"
3. Fabric hair rollers
4. Giant rag rug
5. Giant coiled fabric basket for holding yarn
6. Blue scarfy necklace
7.Fabric-covered lampshades for craft room
8.

I love this idea. I never craft for myself and have very few things around the house that I've actually made.

1. tote bag with typewriter fabric
2. lap blanket - knit and maybe a quilted one too Smiley
3. some kind of knit head or neck wear
