Jumping in to join the fun, even though 2 months are gone in the year.  This ME Bucket List craftalong is an awesome idea!  I've been hesitant to join since I can't post pics - getting the images from camera to comp, the little card thingy won't do its thing - but I'll try with phone-to-email.  Everyone's projects look fantastic!

... 1. Replace the huge bowed picture window (12' wide x 6' tall and that was pulling downward and about to drag the outer wall with it) -  What an adventure that was. Finally accomplished on New Years Eve 2014.  Yes, I am slow.
... 2. "V" Scarf dickie ---March/ pg.24
... 3. Make butterscotch blondies -- accomplished this 6/2015!
... 4. Purse/tote (purse craftalong) -- made a Mom Brag Bag out of son's band tee shirt
... 5. Reusable shopping bag from recycled pillow case
... 6. headband/ear warmer
... 7. Gift bow from sheet music (special remembrance project)
... 8. Apron... pg 30
... 9. Shrug
... 10. Scarf to match coat
... 11. Eyeglass case large enough for sunglasses - made one but it isn't big enough for my bulky shades
... 12. Stain new kitchen cupboards - May

03/01 **Note** Many thanks to my wonderful husband for his patience and tech skills, helping to get the pics uploaded!

Completed Projects
Shrug/Bolero -from a bargain shirt that was way too big but too nice to discard.  I added velcro for a more finished look.

Repurposed pillowcase into a shopping tote:  (Made a couple weeks ago and used diligently since then!  My apologies for the wrinkles.)

I've been working on some mini-journals and hope to finish and post at least one tonight. The most frustrating thing has been that my glue sticks don't make the paper stick!! Anybody have something for paper-on-paper gluing that works awesome that is not super expensive and messy?

I generally use double-sided tape or tape runners, especially if I'm working with cardstock.
