(image is of scarves shipped to the Special Olympics 2012--another great craftalong that motivated me to get these done on time! Cheesy)

Welcome to the 50 Projects 2012 thread!  This is a craftalong that encourages you to try new crafts, hone and expand your current skills, get great ideas, make gifts for family, friends and yourself...get organized and focused...

You can handle your list in any way that will help you stay on track and record your progress...your list can be changed anytime...or you can just add to your list when you get done...cross stuff off...whatever works!

50 is just a random goal...some people will have far less, others far more...there is no score-keeping...you are doing this for yourself and sharing what you want with your fellow craftsters!

We encourage comments, lots of pics, and positive cheering on...we still have to follow craftster rules, so please stay on the topic of crafting as much as you can, but please do not forget that we are a social community so be respectful and kind to each other in bad and good times!  Most of all, have FUN!!!

I have a prize ready for one of the lists that I randomly selected already... Cheesy...so good luck and remember to post to see if you win!!!  You do not have to have a list, but if you want to enter the list random drawing, you will need at least a mini list! Cheesy  Lists must be posted by January 7th to enter!

Latest News:
DECEMBER, rush to finish 2012, CHALLENGE:

Simple Challenge!

Category 1:
There will be a prize drawn from anyone still active in this craftalong that has 1-49 projects done.  You must post a project by January 7 to be eligible.

Category 2:
There will be a prize drawn from anyone still active in this craftalong that has 50 projects done.  Again, you must post by January 7 to be eligible.  Anyone eligible in this category will automatically be eligible for category 1.

Category 3:
Same as above, only 51-99 projects done.

Category 4:
Same as above, only 100 or more projects done.

So, the more projects you have done, the more chances you have to win!

I am going to require that you PM me with how many projects you have done.  That will save me bunches of time.

August Challenge!

Let's regroup!  Please post a mini-list of no more than 5 items that you want to complete in August.  If you have a few WIPS, post those first!  You will get an extra chance for completing a WIP!

Of course, you can make a lot more things, but everyone who reaches his/her goal on the mini list will be entered for the August challenge!

One extra rule:  You cannot change your list once you post it, so make sure you really are going to make those 5 items.  Please post your list no later than August 8--one week.  Of course, you can be making your items starting NOW! Cheesy


June/July Challenge!

1.  Wearable items

2.  More than one (like if you make two hats, you get one chance to win!  two art pieces...two ATC's...two cakes)

3.  Garden crafts

4.  Anything in hot colors: pink, oranges, turquoise, lime green

I am going to go through the lists to see who is active and who is not...there will be another random drawing from the list of actives so be sure to check your status at the end of next week...if you have not commented or made anything for 30 days, I am going to count it as inactive...


MAY 2012 WINNER:  that1girl!!!!!!!!

that1girl has requested fabrics as a prize!


1. Colors: grass (green), sky (blue), sun( yellow/orange), clouds (white/off white)--dreaming of laying out in a field looking at the clouds go by

2. Something for yourself

3. Strictly art...ATC's, paintings, etc.  Think projects that are not necessarily functional...just art...

WINNER April 16-April 30 : Bookstorebabe!

Bookstorebabe requested a gift certificate from one of her favorite websites!

WINNER April 1-April 15  :Meleriffic!

Meleriffic is getting a gift certificate from Spoonflower!


Since I am super busy until April 15th, I will be combining March and April challenges.  Very very simple.

I am going to take the all of the posts between March 1 and April 30 and randomingly select 4 numbers.  If those numbers have a member who has an ACTIVE list, there will be a prize awarded.  So, the posts can be of items you made or a nice comment about something someone else made.  How is that for an easy challenge?

So post post post!

Prizes:  Gift certificates of choice!

WINNER March 16-March 31 : Abbeeroad!

Her prize was a selection of robot and gears fabric, a jar pincushion, and some embroidery threads!

WINNER March 1-March 15: Post #1822--Kookaloo Starr!
Her prize was a pair of circular knitting needles and a skein of handpainted sock yarn! (thanks for the great pic, K-star!)


#388 Eclectic Dreamer


1. Color: Red family--pinks, rose, burgandy, red, purpley red...!
2. New technique or medium for you--you most post in another forum to be eligible...so if you normally sew and you make jewelry, it counts!  If you usually use acrylics and you switch to watercolor, it counts...
3. Swap items...yep, if you swap with another member, it counts; if the swap partner is also a 50 project member, you bet a bonus count! Cheesy
4. Quantity: reasonable: each three projects counts as 1 chance to win

You must post pics to have an eligible project or PM me if you can't post for any reason (swap, etc.)


1. your choice of 1 yard of fabric from SPOONFLOWER!!!(well--a gift card!) or...two skeins of premium yarn ( about $20 worth!!) or comparable supplies for your craft...jewelry findings, paper, etc.
2. Miscellanous supplies and goodies of my choosing
3. $25 gift card from Amazon (or, you can add it to the SPOONFLOWER or I can just get you a regular Visa giftcard--whatever!)

GOOD LUCK and happy crafting!

Eclectic Dreamer chose to get a $50 gift card from Amazon.com to use for whatever she wants!

Great lists!  Remember that you can do your list however you want...whatever works for YOU!  I love looking at lists but I confess, I then add so much more to my own list! Cheesy

You can edit and delete and change your list all you want...I am again going to add thumbnails of pics as I complete each item since I like to print it out and save it on a CD...it does give a sense of accomplishment when I feel like I have been doing "nothing"..ha ha

Great start!
