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.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

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.
