1  Re: 50 Projects More or Less...2017...Let's Create and Have Fun! in Craftalongs by goktrose on: February 06, 2017 06:42:51 PM
Next project of the year is a WIP I finally got around to finishing- a glasses rest. It wasn't even that much work left, it was just that the project got lost in the pile of other things to do! This is a gift for my husband who saw a wooden glasses holder shaped like a nose and wanted something like it ever since.

MistressT: o man the matching outfits are adorable.
geekgirl: I love charcoal, I rate how artsy I feel based on how messy I get, so in my opinion it is the artsy-est!  Wink

I am getting so jealous with people's cozy socks, I have only ever managed 1 single, lonely sock, and it was lumpy and too large  Cheesy

For project #2 I crocheted a hat! I was supposed to go to D.C. for the Women's March but my ride ditched me.
Then, I got lucky in that my city is doing their own for people unable to make the trip! A pattern to make a hat for solidarity across the country for marchers has been going around, and people are working to make as many as they can. I joined in to make one as well!

Ah Smeddley, I love your goal books. And you remind me that I have to get around to posting mine. Smiley

First Project of the Year!

My coworker's daughter turns 1 this week, so I made her a floppy bunny doll. Its my first time sewing a doll, and I made up the pattern so its a bit lumpy, but I think she will like it!

I received my package from WaveLight23478 and its so darn cool!
She crafted off of our shared love of pokemon!

My items:

I love the pokeball! It has already taken up residence in my craft room with my hooplas! And pikachu is definitely going to come live on my desk at work!   Grin

And some fun extras, stickers and energy cards!

You can't tell from the picture, but the cards are holographic! Gotta love shiny!  Wink

Thank you WaveLight! I love my poke items dearly, you crafted perfectly for me!

Oooh the projects from the silhouette machine are fantastic. I need me one of those!

I love the lockets so much, the little books are adorable.

I wonder if I could handle loom knitting, I can crochet but add another stick and I'm lost! But I love the look of knitted projects so much and those gloves look so cozy!

I finished project #4!
My in-laws got me an awesome set of Banksy coasters after I made my sister-in-law walk all around London to find a piece by him, so I thought they deserved a nice holder for displaying them on my coffee table. I first tried popsicle sticks but the coasters were too large and I hate trying to cut popsicle sticks, so I perused pinterest for ideas and settled on trying to weave a box out of newspaper strips.
(It's a bit wonky, can I say that weaving is very hard and I needed about 6 more hands?!)

Also, the goal book and this forum is definitely keeping me motivated this year! I like being able to see a record of my daily habits and progress on all my goals!

I always keep track of my swap items in my count, otherwise I'd never get to 50!

Renstar I love your hat! Such pretty yarn Smiley
ZombieLili Your drawings are gorgeous! Love the style

I finished a headband my coworker wanted for bringing her soon-to-be-born newborn home from the hospital in. Had to wing it but I like how it turned out!

(I don't have a baby, so a giant wine glass had to step in for modeling it!)  Grin

Ah! That Toothless earbud case is ADORABLE! I also love the embroidered hoodie!

My first project of 2016 was to create a Goal Book inspired by (mostly plagiarized from) Smeddley, who created this amazing Goal Book last year!

You can see the full post with pictures of all the pages and description here

My second project was my own Happiness Box to fill with happy moments from every day in 2016 so if I'm having a bad day I can look back on all the little sources of happiness I've experienced this year!

9  2016 Goal Book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by goktrose on: January 02, 2016 09:43:42 PM
Last year Smeddley made a post of the Goal Book she made for 2015 and I was inspired! I kept a tab open to her book all year so when 2016 rolled around I could do something similar to keep motivated for the year.

See her amazing goal book here!

So I borrowed ideas for her pages, but then made some of my own as well to fit my goals for 2016.

My pages are:
1. 16 New Books Read
2. 2016 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge Book List
3. 16 New Movies Watched
4. Movies Owned Before 2016 Watched
    - I have too many movies I bought and haven't watched yet!
5. 16 Big Projects Completed
6. 16 WIPS Completed
7. My 50 Projects of 2016 list
8. 16 New Places Experienced
9. 16 New Restaurants Tried
10. 16 New Recipes Made
11. 16 Letters Written
12. 16 Sketches and Paintings Made
13. 1/2 Hours Exercised
14. Drank 8 Glasses of Water a Day
    - The last two I will put a gold star each day I achieve the goal and once I gain certain amounts of stars I will gain a reward like a candy bar or something
15. 16 Random Acts of Kindness Done
16. 16 Songs Learned on the Guitar
17. 16 Guerrilla Art pieces done
18. Miscellaneous Goals
19. Fruit and Veggie Sticker Fun Page! (My favorite page of Smeddley's original!)

Photo dump below!

Thanks Smeddley for making your awesome, inspiring book!
