50 Projects More or Less...2017...CHALLENGES!



March/April Challenge


Have you ever made something for someone else, either as a gift or in a swap, and really wished you could have kept it for yourself?  I know I have!  Well, the challenge for March/April is this:  make yourself someone you really loved that you gave away...it can be the exact same thing or something similar...please post a picture of what you originally made and the new item.

There will be a prize!



***********************************************************************************
The winner of the January/February Challenge is:   (to be announced March 1)


January/February Challenge

The New Year is all about resetting...getting rid of things, habits,weight, ideas, supplies, etc. and also learning or experiencing new things.  So for January, the challenge is in two parts:

1.  Name a crafting item that you are going to let go of...something that you no longer want to do, have the skills for, etc. Also, in this category...supplies that you have passed on or will not be using any longer...it is alright to clean our crafting houses of old things!

2. Make and post something you have always wanted to try but never got around to...it does not have to be perfect or huge...maybe a washcloth you made when you learned crochet...a simple pair of earrings...

Have fun!  There will be a prize!

January participants!
