ageddert - an etch-a-sketch laptop cozy sounds brilliant!  I can't wait to see it!  Did you see one somewhere?

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

I sometimes think that when you are super busy, you actually get more done because you have to watch your time...looks like you have a busy week ariethine!

I think I am going to spend this weekend organizing instead of crafting much (except I do have a few ATCs to finish!)..and a wallet to make and a purse to make, but that is all...

I don't think I could wrap my fabrics and put them on a bookshelf...I have a huge bookshelf now that holds about 36 clear storage containers of fat quarters...I think my large bins would work better if I did the suggested excel schedule and labeled my bins...I think I will then put the list on a clipboard and hang it next to my bulletin board...If I had a list, I really wouldn't need to worry about what type of fabric was in each bin--just look for the bin...I will let you know how that works out...thanks for the ideas...I wonder if there was some way I could attach a small piece of the fabric onto my list...(sorry--thinking out loud!)

I also wrapped 1/2 yard + fabric around the comic book boards this year. Scraps and fat quarters went into clear totes, by color. Everything is organized in rainbow order.  Grin

My thanks to everyone who has posted lists for me to steal borrow ideas from. There have been so many great ideas posted and it will help me keep busy, since I plan on trying to quit smoking (again) next week!

I quit smoking 13 years ago after smoking for 21 years........the final way I quit...... I took the word "trying" out of my sentence! You can do it and you can also claim that as a completed project!!  Cheesy

Thank you so much! And thanks to eveyone else to. My dh is a smoker and many of our friends are too, so not much offline support.

Next week I will be quiting smoking!

I've had lots of time on my hands for the past two weeks because business at work came to a grinding halt during the holiday season. This morning I made a pair of earrings to go with my outfit for tonight. I hope I keep up the makin' rhythm!

Good luck to all quitting smoking!

I did this in 2008 and was pleasantly surprised to find how many different kinds of crafts I do.  Looking forward to 2010!

Just moved into an enormous new house and some of my projects will be decorating and creating new spaces -- including an enormous craft room that needs new molding, a decent paint job, curtains, containers, work stations...

Building a garden from scratch, which should be a lot of fun.

Rehabbing a rescued $5 sewing machine and cabinet.

And tons of projects I can't yet imagine, from stashed fabric, yarn, buttons -- even bones!

Looking forward to sharing with you all this coming year!

I'm just using my post here to keep track of everything I complete, the WIPs, and the projects I hope to get started on eventually (it's easy to forget a good idea sometimes, so this is kind of like a reverse wish-list).

The best part about putting it down here is that it makes it more real.  I'm more inclined to actually finish some of my projects if it's in writing, kind of like a contract with myself.

50 projects challenge

52/50 done

I'm curious, are most people putting things on their lists of supplies that are already in their stash? I think most of mine are, I'm really really going to try and use a good chunk of my stash up this year that way I stop getting the evil looks from the man
