I don't have an answer for that, since this is only the second time I've used the paint, and I haven't tried to repaint.  It goes on just like any other paint, though, so I'm guessing that a little sanding to rough it up is all you need to paint over it.

Is it too late to join in on this?  I NEVER craft for myself, and there are so many projects that it would be helpful if I'd go ahead and just take the time and do them for myself/my own household.  I just did 1 of 50, I guess.  I crocheted my son a thick winter hat out of bulky yarn.  Now, let me think of 49 more.  LOL 

Seriously, though, I can join in, or are y'all too many days in?

A few more things finished last night, and I was so energized I got up this morning and made a big pot of black bean chili.  Picked up a loaf of bread on the way to work and took the chili in a crockpot with bowls of sour cream, cheddar cheese and cilantro.  Gone in less than an hour -- I didn't even get to take a picture!

#2 Baby items

A little bunny buddy to go with a blanket for a friends foster baby.  Using up more stash.


And a diagnonal baby blanket made with stash Thick-and-Quick -- I like that fat yarn, but I hate weaving in the ends.



Also picked up a cabinet sewing machine at the school district warehouse for $5.  Still need to check it out and see how well it works, but I'm already looking forward to sanding down the cabinet (currently etched with kids initials and band names) and decorating it for my new craft room.

Love this cold weather and all the snow!

ha ha QNM--did you prorate your number to 41.5 projects? ha ha

Oh thanks pinokeeo--I was wondering if it was like regular paint or not...I could test a wall in the basement to see...I also read that tip of the member that said it had to be seasoned!

I am guessing that at the rate some members are going, there will be those that go beyond 50 projects and some will get only big projects done--it is however you want to motivate yourself...please join aikibookworm!!  This has been great fun!

Cute baby items yofi!  The diagonal blanket is very nice!  And your chili made me hungry!

I'm joining in!  I have a list of thirty projects to do... I am sure that along the way, I will come up with twenty more.  I am not at home today, but tomorrow I will post my first project.

Definately all a motivation technique! I've made some of my small stuff so far, and I'm trying to crank out the small things(enjoyable cranking though though, not like crazy "I hate you crochet hook! you've ruined my life!" cranking out), that way when I just have my big projects left like the quilts and afgans I want to do, I'll already have built myself up in my head("oh you wonderful craftster you. You can do ANYTHING!") and will have the motivation to finish the big projects.

thats the plan anyways!  Roll Eyes

Seeing all of the quilt projects is motivating me to at least draw out my pattern and plan what fabrics I need to use up--and, I have not sewn clothing in years and have forgotten how wonderful it felt--and it was my first love when I learned how to sew...might have to add some clothes to my list...
