I’ve read about everyone’s resolutions and #365 challenges on blogs and on twitter. Following on from my last blog post, I haven’t made any resolutions and I wasn’t going to enter into any more challenges.
However, taking stock of all my WIPs (work in progress) and work-not-yet-in-progress-but-I’ve-bought-the-stuff, the mountain of 12″x12″ papers, my 4 huge boxes of fabrics, my embellishments, card making kits, felt stash, magazine freebie kits etc etc etc, I have decided to try and finish my WIPs and not buy anything new until they are.
Now there will be exceptions to this. I currently need some more glue dots and adhesive and my cards aren’t going to get very far without them. Therefore, general sundries have to be permissable. Also, if I have a Craftyguider commission or need to make something specific for someone as a gift (3 babies in 2013 in the next few weeks that I know about!) I can buy something.
Today I finished my Christmas HO HO HO decopatch I bought in October.
I’d done the white and red HO’s but not the green one. All the HO’s have glitter mod podge on them and I’m really happy with it.
Don’t expect a make a day or even a week. I have quite a few large cross stitch kits to finish amongst the WIPs as well as some very quick ones. Hopefully I will save some money, make some room in the office, and do some crafting for me.
