Hmm... My list will always change but now I've gotten some inspiration and there are a few things I want to try.  I'm going to try to keep mine small so as not to overwhelm myself.

1. Set up a craft area in my new house
2. Rainbow Rapunzel scarf (for Rachel's xmas present)
3. Learn to double crochet

7. Make ruffly scarf [url=https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287996.0]https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=287996.0

8. Polymer Clay Earrings (for etsy and me) http://www.etsy.com/listing/62983413/metallic-silver-polymer-clay-star?ref=fp_treasury_4
9. Mustache Pint Glasses (for my male friends) http://www.etsy.com/listing/62202711/moustache-pint-glasses-variety-of-colors?ref=v1_other_1
10. Homemade cloth napkins (for my home)
11. Swap item #1
12. Swap item #2
13. Swap item #3
14. Flower clips for roommate!
15. Flower clips for me!
16. First ever ATCs
17. First ever Inchies
18. First ever Dotee
19. Baking for the first time (Scones)

finished something else on my list! I made a cardigan from a simplicity pattern, I'll post pictures later, probably sunday. It took forever because i kept having to take breaks with kiddo:Smiley I love how it turned out, even if my preggo body couldn't handle all of the time spent cutting on the floor and sewing in an uncomfortable chair.
