The February blahs will soon be upon us. How about a crafting a little pick me up for a friend and one for yourself too?  
Gentle reminders that life is good, you are beautiful, remember to make time for self-care, that it's ok just to sit and day dream with a cup of tea now and then, that there IS time to read a book, and that creativity is never a waste of time.
It could be a painted rock, fridge magnet, pin-back button, Teesha Moore type patch, an ATC or 4X6 piece of art, a change purse, keychain, pendant, merit badge, a little hoopla or a painting, anything really. If you felt like releasing that energy into the universe you could even request an abandonable piece of art.
There is a 2 week crafting time to keep things easy and low-stress, extras are not required but sending a card or note would be very nice.

Alrighty, how about sign ups between Jan 18-24, partners by the 25th, a crafting time of 2 weeks with send outs Feb 9. That shouldn't interfere with any Valentine's swaps, the deadline for those seem to be about Feb 2.

Remember this will be only one small item for your partner and one for yourself, a small should take about 2 hours or less. Nice and easy, happy fun good times!

Red it's so nice you make things for your boy and even nicer that he appreciates them. My kids love when I create things just for them. Here's another bookmark for today, my small girl's request for a koala. I didn't make him look squashed though, ha.

audio do you know about the "gemstone" Fordite? Those mandalas look a bit like that, cool. Wonder if you could cut and polish it into cabochons etc?

Calluna I just remelted the gelli-plate I made last year, now my goal is to actually use it.

Here's my project for the day. I checked out a few of these squashed creature bookmarks & tried a frog for our aunt as thanks for having us over the holidays. Pattern made-up-as-you-go style.

I tracked down the evolution of that kitty. Here is the original incarnation and the mends so far:

I am so captivated by this slow stitching project, I'm going to explore the medium further.. great way to use up sweater scraps!

melly I think cleaning the craft room is a gigantic project all on it's own!

Sera what is that a picture of? Pretty colours anyhow.

audio I was so surprised at how fast that blanket came together. I'm really glad I did it, we keep ours on the bed winter and summer so I know he's going to get lots of use out of it.

Here's my project of the day, finally wood burned these cutting boards so sliced apple doesn't taste of onion anymore.

Wood burning is difficult, smelly, and with (for me at least) unsatisfyingly attractive results but these will serve their purpose so I am fine with it not being as cute as I'd hoped.

I did this in the past with better results but this is really more a functional thing so it doesn't matter how it looks. Much :/.

I broke the glass-top stove that lived in this island. Thankfully these great cutting boards fit right on top. At first we only had one but it was starting to make everything taste of onion and garlic so we picked up another and I've wood burned them both to indicate which to cut onions etc on and which not to.

They fit perfectly beside each other and have this lip along one edge that helps them sit over the pins that held the burner knobs. So perfect!

I never liked that stove so we're going to put in a proper gas range where the oven is in the back ground there and turn the centre island into the prep surface that is so sadly missing. In the meantime I'm making meals on a hot plate which is a daily reminder to take care not to turn the burner up instead of off. Oops.

Here are my original boards so many years ago. I don't remember how I got the images to look so nice, my skill level has gone down with this craft, ack!
