I love this idea. I want to make up some theme crafts for different rooms.

Magnets and towels, here I come.

i think this would be fun too...so how does a craftalong work? Would we just work on the projects and post (IN THIS THREAD?) them as we make them. Your making things for yourself is that correct? Just so I know...but anyhoo I could definitely make some new stuff for my house as we are neverending in the decoration department...did that make sense.

Anyways, if someone could just clarify a Craftalong better for me that would be great.

I would love to do a personal swap for Quality, well made felt or crochet play foods for my daughter... contact me if you are interested. Check out my shop to see what I could make for you

What I really like is a lot of this was stuff I was wanting to do anyway, and now I have a schedule in which to try it all!  Cheesy

Yup, we work on the same project(s) in the same month, then post the results in this thread.

And, yes, we are making them for ourselves. You can always make them for someone else you know, I reckon; however, this isn't a swap or anything among craftsters. Smiley


Do whatever your crafty mind comes up with. Crocheting towels sounds pretty neat to me.


Those are some awesome ideas! I'm glad that all of you guys are here to come up with more ideas.

So, if anyone wants to make what txplumwine suggested, go right ahead. Smiley

I want to start NOW!!!

I'm not interested in making a sign, so I think I'm going to have two months where I do bathroom things and instead of candles (I'm not allowed fire) I might make soaps.

This is going to be fun.

You can skip anything that you can't do, or, if you have any other ideas, you can tell me and I'l add it to the list of stuf that people can make.


Hehe, well, you could always start a project now, just don't post anythign about the project until the actual month that the project is in. Go right ahead and make soaps...the more creativity we have, the better, right?

ALSO, just so everyoneis aware, you only have to do ONE project per month, unless you want to do more. If there is more than one thing for a month, that's just so we have some different choices to work with.

And, if anyone has any other suggestions on things to make, please do tell. Smiley

Okay I just spent a minute or so brainstorming some more ideas.  I tried to stay within your themes you had.

Sept -
Frosted glass wear, pot holders

potpourri or herb pouches. Incense, incense holders

placemats, trays

dec - expanding on organizational tools ..... message boards (great for reminders or working out logic/math problems), dry erase calender, mail organizer.  Boxes (everyone loves decorated boxes)

Jan - if you don't like signs, what about general door decorations?  A picture, a wreath or something else fun.

Feb - heat pad, pillows

March - decorate vases, create fake flower arrangements

April - shower curtain rings, embroider or other wise decorate hand towels.  Make soaps/lotions/bath salts/oils.

May -
In case people wanted other options as there is already an organizational stuff month.  I tried to think up other things people could do.
Things for your walls/shelves - collages, picture frames, bookends

Things for your yard/porch (wish I had one!) - Plants, decorate citronella candles, windchimes, grill cover, out door seat cushions, little garden decorations.

But more on the kitchen organization - decorate sugar/flower canisters, utensil holders (like racks, or big jugs), recipe book/card holder.
