Welcome (or Welcome back...Grin) to the 50 projects in 2014 craftalong!!!


My own creative messy room that I am always in... Grin  It is an ongoing WIP...

In this craftalong,the intended goal is to be creative and have fun making projects.  When many of us started tracking what we were making, it was amazing how many projects we got done....and when we set our goals, WOW, we got even more done!

If there is a board on Craftster for the project, it counts:  home decor, cooking , knitting, sewing, beading, etc. etc.  

Amaze yourself and keep a pictorial history of all that you get accomplished, whether it is 1 major project or 200 smaller ones, just making something will be special for you and those of us that you share your pictures with.

We will continue to have challenges and prizes...I am not the faster organizer or the best moderator, but I try hard and am encouraged by all that I have seen you guys make...

Get your list ready, if you want, or just post as you go...whatever works best for you...share your tips and share your encouragement and techniques...also, be sure to post "out there" for others in the community to see!!!  We love pictures, so, no such things as "Pic overload"...bring it on!!!

**************************************************************************
April/May 2014
1. Welcome the change in season projects--spring, pastels, flowers, Easter, new clothes or home decor (ALL of you will qualify here, right?)
2. Use a "doorstopper" or craft supply that you bought but never got around using!
3. School or child-related projects

Have fun and craft before the lazy days of summer!!

This is tax season for me so I have to limit my time online!


Challenge:

1. Decorate your home or yourself for Valentines/Sweetheart Day...anything related to hearts, red, white, candy,

2. Colors: predominately purple or orange or both!

3. Borrow from someone's list: take a look at someone that you admire or know in this craftalong and make something similar to what they have...to enter this one, you will need to name that person and what item you "borrowed"...easy, right?


January 2014

Challenge:

1. A new year, a new you---a project that involves organizing or improving your life: a new outfit, a new recipe, a new scarf, an craft supply organizer

2. Color: blue or wintery (white, silver, etc.)

3. Something inspired by a tutorial on Craftster:  you must link to the tutorial to enter it!

4. Learn something new...even if you fail, you win...take a leap and try it...something you have wanted to learn, but put off for some reason...2014---DO IT!!!


Prize: $25 gift card or surprise package

It was luck of the draw!  I'm never first!  I just happen to be here at the right time!  Cheesy  I can't wait to get started though.  I will have finished out 2013 with over 50 projects and I'm hoping that 2014 goes just as well! Cheesy

And I'm in too.  I have been waiting for the new thread to open.  Grin

I am clearing down my old list and starting again, so it will be an ever growing list that hopefully I will achieve more of. At today's date I am on 37/50 for 2013 which is not bad for a first time counter.

2014 21/50

I need to try and focus on not having some many wips at once.
The To Do list:
- WIP from 2013 - quilt. I am determined to get this done early 2014.

- WIP fingerless gloves, started in 2013.
- Baby bootees, definitely 1 pair, maybe more as there is another pregnant at work. Will see how my time and creativity goes.
WIP cable booties
WIP scrapbookey journal for LV swap
WIP gift for LV swap


Related but not necessarily projects
- Destash my fabric , only so that I can restash again  (serious oops, restashing has begun without much destashing.)
- Destash my yarn.

Completed:  Grin
1. Asteroids Wallhanging for OH. (Didn't quite get it finished before New year party time  Roll Eyes) Complete 02 Jan[/b .


2. Doorstop(s) 1 and a half complete, ran out of stuffing for the second. (05 Jan)


3. Converse Booties (25/01)


4. Other Booties (24/01)


5. Skully scarf (26/01)


6,7,8. 3 more skully scarves, similar to above so no new pictures.

9. Purple / Orange pin board (06/02)


10. De-stash skirt (08/02)


11. Space invaders (not very valentine's) picture Feb 2014
 

12 - 17. journal / doodles:







18. Mariposa scarf / shawl for LV swap partner, no picture because I am a Doofus and forgot!

19. LV journal, again no picture  Cry

20. New skirt:  (more de-stashing)



21. Doofus Dress. (I am the doofus)
