Love the dreamcatcher!

smashu--I think junggrl did a tutorial one year to make those door stopper things...they really do work!  I have them through out my old house and I did make a few for some windows!

fishstix--love how your sweater turned out!  I have been looking at similar fabrics at Joann's and wondering how they would look--very flattering!

hey, people--I have been documenting your eligible projects for the challenge...if I miss anyone, please PM me...this thread needs more eyes than I have! Cheesy

Welcome!  You can do it!  What a nice start!  I love mushrooms!  Will you be using them for other projects or what do you do with them? 

Can't wait to see more of your paper mache projects!

Friends, we are at 85 participants!  If we all reach our goal, that is 4,250 creative goodies in the universe!!

I finished a project last night. It's a throw pillow. I started making squares for a puff quilt but I didn't have enough fabric so I made a pillow instead. I'll get a picture up as soon as I can pry my husband away from the computer.

I am also going to be an auntie( but not the first time) sometime this summer.

a dream catcher for my craft room/guest room:

Tiny bits - Really love this dream catcher (I'm adding one to my list right now!!)

Oh - and I completed another project today myself (posting is very motivating, no?!

It's a mixed media notice board Smiley very happy with it, I have more details here: http://paperbeau.weebly.com/3/post/2013/01/the-bring-the-garden-inside-notice-board.html
