My original plan was to post something that didn't have any pictures. That plan failed...miserably. I couldn't help myself, so for those that hate posts with pictures, I apologize now. I decided to put together a list of goals I have craft-wise for next year. So far this is what I've come up with. I may be adding to it as they come to me.
**Learn how to sew. I'm getting a sewing machine from Santa (me and him have this special relationship where I know everything I'm getting) that I would love to know how to use. I took Home Ec in high school, but we used ancient sewing machines, so I will have to re-learn how to sew again. Here is the sewing machine I will be learning on.
**Learn how to embroider. My fabulous friend Bri is going to teach me and recommended this kit to get started.
**Make a quilt. Yea I don't even know how to sew yet and I'm already talking about making a quilt. (high expectations much?)
**Learn to crochet. (hint hint Carol) I want to eventually make my own fingerless gloves and some cutsie animals. Carol made this adorable Octopus that I absolutely LOVE!
**Put my craft room together, as in paint it, get a table, organize obsessively and hang some inspirational work up. I have been using my kitchen counter for the past year and it really is getting crammed. Plus I have run out of cabinet space to put all my stuff in. And let's face it, painting on your counter isn't really logical.. This is about what I want mine to look like. Yea that high expectation thing I was talking about earlier, it's happening again.
**Learn how to make these adorable felt foods for my daughters kitchen. I already bought the plastic version but want to replace them with something that was handmade and has a touch of Mommy on it.
**Learn how to finger-knit (which I learned a few days ago). I added anyway because it was on my original list.
**Make something original, something no one has thought of yet. I have 1 idea in mind that I think would be AMAZING! Just need to figure one or 2 things out. I still need to do a little more research to make sure I wouldn't be taking credit for something that has been done before. I haven't seen it done yet though so we will see :)
**Have every card and gift that I give next year be handmade. I want to put my heart into everything I give next year. Don't you feel so giddy inside when you give a gift that you made yourself? Seems so much more special to me.
**Paint something on canvas. Yea it would take 2 minutes to just paint anything, but this something has to make me proud enough to hang it on my wall.
