I am also very much an ADD crafter. I keep switching from one thing to another to another, and then the rest of the time, I'm doing nothing because I can't decide what to work on or I've hit a bunch of roadblocks. Right now I'm working on swap items, a purse, crocheting out how much of a certain yarn I have to see if I have enough for a different purse, and a plush toy!! (All of my "out" projects that I've been working on and thinking about working on in the past 10 minutes. T.T

I need some instant gratification, so I keep browsing through my list of 50... bazillion... and don't see much. I can't really keep organized, so I think I'm just going to make whatever feels like a project (based off of my list) and just add all the finished ones up on a a separate list. ><  But I think overall I should just get started on finishing!!

I have been busy the last 2 days, amazing what you can get done when you turn the computer off.

I have dried fruit and made apple pies

made an organiser and a new top.

I gave up making a backpack handbag when I saw my new one for $1 and it's almost new....so I made an organiser instead.

and some drink bags and ice pack



Life is a terminal disease, NO one gets out alive.....The idea is to enjoy it while you can.

That organiser is very neat ^^, Tanza.  And it's excellent to put order inside a pocketless bag.

I haven't finished anything else yet... instead, I've started something else!  Yesterday I went to this craft fair and I found so much interesting stuff that I couldn't help buying some of it.  I bought three kits to make things that I haven't tried before:  a bracelet, a fuse work doily-looking piece and a goldwork picture.  The goldwork is something I can do right before going to sleep instead of reading, and I have started it already.  What I don't know is when I'll finish it, but it's fun!

Love the organizer, what a great idea and those things can be expensive in the stores.

Crafting is a state of mind.

Love the organizer!  I switch purses constantly and if would be so much easier to keep everything in one of those than trying to transfer everything from all the different pockets! 

So projectwise this week, I've got nothing to show.  I did actually finish seed bead hoop earrings (just three concentric wire hoops, each threaded with a different color of seed bead), but I promptly lost one into the bottomless pit that is our couch.  After looking at my budget book, I told my bf not to let me buy anymore craft supplies until the end of February.  This meant I did get a start on a few things I already have around; bear for my niece (from a latchhook kit) and I realized the perfect use for an awesome fabric I have would be to make a hobo bag, so I started that.  Within a few weeks I start grad school visits, meaning that I'll have no weekends, and school will really start kicking my butt, meaning I'll have no time during the week.  But I told myself that I will do some crafty thing every day, even if it's just doing one row or one seam on something.  Especially since ya'll give me so much motivation with all the fabulous projects every day!

Well,we're on our way to Lansing,which is an hour and a half drive there and another hour and a half home. I'm going to get off this laptop and work on some of the crochet i brought with me. Not sure how much I'll get done on the way home as I'm expeccting swollen eyes from crying...we're going to the cemetary for a rememberence ceremony for my friend's twin sons who died when they were two hours old a year ago today :-( They were 22 weeks gestation.
So Happy 1st Angelversary to Logan and Brody!

princessacademy:  What a sad thing.  It's wonderful though that those precious babies parents have friends to help them through such a hard day.

theSapphireMoon:  Sorry to hear that your life is stinky right now.  I hope things look brighter soon.

I'm a little bummed craft-wise.  I just realized that the lap blanket I'm making is probably going to take more like 70 squares than the 50 I thought.  I wanted the squares to be small and tightly knit.  I won't be doing the other 4 lap blankets on my list this way; otherwise I won't get anything else done all year.

Totally signing up for this one even if I am a month late, but I have been working on some projects. Will get my list together over the next few days. Although, I will probably not totally have 50 all at once because you always have to leave room for those 20 or so projects that inspire you to drop everything and start immediately on that you find through the year!

I added a few more snow day projects and another quilt top to my completed list. I'm trying to use up the wizard of oz fabric scraps from the quilts. Enjoy!
