I made some things for alwaysinmyroom in the ows swap, and she received.

First, some cards and envelopes, inspired by this craftster post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334398.0#axzz2kBPkJkIm

These were so fun and I can get free expired calendars so I can't wait to make more.

And a Valentines Day yarn/felt wreath:

Well I am at exactly 0 crafts done this year  Roll Eyes  Had absolutely no crafty mojo. But I have started crafting for the Box of Sunshine swap and it's really helping me out of my funk.  Smiley  I have today off and I'm going to be dying my hair so I can't leave the house all day so I plan on getting a lot done today. ( Due to a sudden allergic reaction to hair dye and a trip to the ER I now have to use Henna and Indigo to dye my hair, it takes 6 hours!  Tongue  )

ActsofCraftiness, thanks for posting the link for those blocks! They will make the perfect gift for my nephew's birthday! Did you use Modpodge to seal? I've had bad experiences with it staying just tacky enough to stick to other pieces that have been sealed with it.

Thanks for posting those wonderful pictures!  They are way better than mine, but this weekend, I am decorating for Valentines, so I will get an action shot!

I loved the notecards...impressed that they were made with calendars!  I sort of wish now that I did not recycle my old calendars... Sad...what kind of glue do you use for the envelopes?  Did you use a template or just take apart an old envelope?  I use tons of notecards in swaps, but I will keep a few of my favorites!

And, I am so glad I got to see your silver texture paint up close...that grasshopper bug jar is wonderful!!  I have a collection of bug whimsies that I am going to put in there...thanks, Jill, for making me a recipient of some of your 50 projects!

I took apart an old envelope as a template.  I got a little lazy in my cutting, so some weren't perfect, but I think of that as character Wink 

I wanted to sit on my recliner while making them, so I stayed away from glue-glue.  I used glue dots on a roll, like from the paper aisle at a craft store.

That is a great idea!  I mostly put them in swap packages so it is not like they are going to fall apart while in transit or anything!  Thanks for that tip!  I have lots of glue dots!

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

You all are making such wonderful projects, and I wish I could comment on each one, but for now the 50 projects board is a spectator sport for me.

I had three surgeries on January 7 on my right arm.  While the surgeries were successful, the recovery is much slower than we had expected, so I am not able to do my crafting, and one-handed typing is difficult.

So, I will be watching from the sidelines and loving all that you do.  And when my recovery is sufficient that I can make the effort again, I will return. 

This has been a difficult decision, and I have discussed it with the moderator, and this is what we came up with.

Happy crafting, Yall.

We will miss your wonderful crafts, but you need to rest and heal, pinokeeo!  Cheer us on from the sidelines!  There certainly have been some wonderful projects and ideas!

JillHogan, the forks are a fun and creative idea. The cards from calendars are beautiful, and the bug jar would be fun for someone who loves bug. The centipedes in the garden are already a bit too much for me as I am quite scared of their bite, especially the beautiful blue ones.

The scarves are great: Your sister's one is elegant but my favorite is Lana's one. It's a fun scarf. Will you make her a sharpener hat to go with it? or maybe notebook mittens?

Pinokeeo, rest your arm well so you can show us more incredible wood crafts later. I hope it is not too painful.

I was supposed to be starting a sweater for me but I don't have the right size needles for it.
What size needles do you need? I could look through mine. I have tons of duplicates.

Oh bless you! I need a 4.5mm and a 4mm circular but it's no big deal to wait for payday,I won't have finished the sweater I've cast on for hubby for a while

I have spares in both sizes, but only as straight needles, not circular.  If they are of any use, let me know and I can send.
