50 PROJECTS 2019

In the ongoing tradition, here's where everybody is invited to share their projects for the year. Make a list of things you intend to do (it could be 5, 50, 100, however many you wish), add to it with new ideas, strike things off the list as they get finished or dropped. Sign ups are open all year. Share your challenges and triumphs, chat about crafting, comment on each other's work, post your projects including links to topics if you've made one. There will be contests and challenges throughout the year, feel free to pitch ideas and offer to send out prizes if you're so inclined. Happy to have you here Smiley.

Hey friends, I asked if I could take over this one while our awesome and very much missed AlwaysInMyRoom is busy with other life things. I hope y'all won't mind reposting your projects from Jan-Feb over here. I'll make sure your list post is attached to a clickable name link here for easy access.
If you have suggestions for challenges please feel free to share. And let me know how I am doing, this a a big topic that so many of you are dedicated to and I want to make sure I am doing it right.

THEMES/CHALLENGES

May is associated with abundance, fertility, new life, love, success and wealth. The flower is lily of the valley and Mother's day falls on Sunday the 12th this year.

Make gifts for new mothers and babies as well as for your own mom or mom-like-figure. May is a good time to make plans for your business or a money-making venture you may be involved in or considering. This is definitely the time to work on anything to do with your garden.


Previous Themes/Challenges:

March- try something new, bonus points for projects related to LUCK ei: gold and green, etc.
winner: tendstowardschaos's "End All War" fabric journal cover, congrats!

April- make (or finish up and give) a gift on the sly for someone you care about. Bonus points for anything that is purposefully cheerful!

May- Make gifts for new mothers and babies, your own mom or mom-like-figure. Make plans for a business or a money-making venture. Work on your garden.

Ugh, it's like Thanos, ok?  the long E is the feminine ending.  (Also, I prefer *not* to destroy the universe when possible.)
