50 Projects in 2016

(Stuff I made for Jemimah in the IYP swap)

Last year was a crazy time for me...this craftalong grew so fast and had so many projects that it took too much time to keep track of it all...so I decided to simplify things a bit...

1. Post a list if you want...I will list you and have a link to your list on the second post

2. Make yourself a goal...50 is just a suggested target...some of you will go way beyond that, some will not...it is all good!  MAKE STUFF! Grin

Here are the links to each participants list. You can also make things easier for yourself by putting your link in your signature.  Use your list to keep you organized, on track and to put up miniature pictures for you to print out at the end of the year.  It is a nice record to show off your talents and your productivity.
