Just remember that this is not a contest. It is just to motivate you and remind you that you are a creative, crafty, artist! Whether you make one thing or a zillion things, you are creating something that was not here before.

Make stuff you love. Learn a new skill. Improve on old skills.

We have all become friends and as such, support each other in our creative goals.

Mainly, have fun! Grin

lol ZombieLili--I am so glad you signed up...I was wondering if I was going to get any "z" people...I want at least one person in each alphabet category, ha ha!

Always, thank you for running such an inspirational craft-a-long!  Smiley  I wasn't as crafty as I should have been last year.  Hopefully 2016 will be a good year for me craftwise!  Smiley

ha ha I love seeing my avatar and Lana's on the same page...I swear she is my granddaughter...Grin.

I get blown away by everyone who has a child or children...and still craft! I think it is great to craft for your children, with your children, and for other people's children.  I hope to do more projects involving children this year as well.

Happy New Year, Craftster family!
