I'm going to see if joining in will help me work on my book stash.  I have a problem with collecting journals and notebooks to use as art journals and I have never finished filling one out.  I have plain sketch books, leather bound books and various junk journals made for me.

My main project for 2017:
- Create 50 journal pages

New art journal/paper crafting techniques to try:
- charcoal - done (or at least attempted!)
- paper scrap monsters - done
- photo people - done
- washi tape feathers
- gelato ombre
- altered tickets ala Smmarrt - done
- improve face drawing skills

Other projects:
- Complete at least 3 journals or make good headway
- fill a junk journal with ATCs that have been made for me
- fill a tiny jornal with inchies and twinchies made for me
- make a scarf for myself
- try 50 new recipes: Lentil Soup
... more to come

So happy to see so many of you returning!  Welcome also to new members...remember that you don't need a list if it is not your thing...you can just use the space to record your projects...I sometimes review my old lists to see what I made in the past...do you ever see something you made and can't remember making it?  I sometimes feel like I get possessed or something when I do a project...

gala--I love that you are doing an alphabet swap list!  lol....I might have to start a few swaps with some of the weird letters to help you along!

geekgirl--I know what you mean---I have many journals that need to be used up...I will poke you if you poke me back! lol
