Craft My Ride Swap

Whilst all of us prance around with our handmade swag, and load our abodes with crafty goodness… I think our cars are feeling left out! My idea is to craft things to organize, personalize, and even make more comfortable all that time we spend in our cars.

There are a ton of ideas for crafts on the idea topic here:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43855.0
I recommend taking a gander before you sign up so you can list the kinds of things you would like on your questionnaire

Guidelines:
You could make 1 large item and some medium-smaller ones, or some medium items and a few smaller ones. Try to craft as many of the items as possible, but if it strikes your fancy to buy some small things go for it. Please communicate with your partner! (example: if you want to make them a glovebox organizer, ask them to measure their glovebox...surprises are wonderful, but you also want everything to serve it's purpose!)  ...

Well I had 2 collapsed lungs and a cut on my spleen and a shattered right knee cap but I'm better now, I'm done PT (physical therapy) for my knee but haven't gone back to work yet b/c the store I was at closed the end of July. I'm doing really well considering my injuries and it only happened in April. Plus crafting and making things seerms to be almost theraputic for me!  ;D
