2012 Craft Challenge

Postby hannahell on Tue Jan 03, 2012 1:34 pm

I'm inpatient and I know Meggers is super busy these days so I'm gonna start it off. As it normally goes, set your own goal. Link us to your tumblr or blog if you have one pertaining to crafting.

I'm going to set my goal to 100 this year, because last year I did 75 and went past it.

1. Made minestrone soup
2. Crocheted two pot holders

Oh and my crafting tumblr(I post when I'm not lazy) ishttp://www.shescrafty666.tumblr.com

Anything you make or diy, baking, and cooking counts if it's made from scratch.

Yes, haircuts/coloring definitely counts. I wish you could give me a snazzy cut and color. I need it bad!

i'm not sure i would ever be able to keep track if i counted cooking/baking. so i'll limit mine to crafts/home projects. i'll say 50.

so far:

1. night shirt for my daughter and a friend's daughter (this could be two, but it was the same material and pattern, so i'll count it once.)
2. made a pull toy squirrel for same friend's daughter.

i have a HUGE list of home projects that i need to get done asap. everything from building our bed, to built in bookshelves and a bench seat with storage in our book nook. this year's crafting is going to be intense!


oh and my tumblr, which i never freaking use, but will have to start now is http://www.tumblr.com/blog/bethanphetamine

Goal: 100

1. Hoop 1 of 2012
2. Patched a hole in some pants
3. Vegetable casserole
4. Set up a sweet floral arrangement
5. Collaged my refrigerator/sides of my desk at work
...and maybe we have to break everything to make something better out of ourselves.

My goal is 20... I know it's really low but I'm sick more days than I'm well.
1. Made a "star student award poster" with my daughter. Not much but hopefully a start! More than I've done in a while so I'm proud :P
