I haven’t made new year resolutions for years as I always made unachievable goals that got me down when I inevitably failed at them. This year, to coincide with my birthday which is in the new year, I’ll be sharing my list of aims for 2012.
One of these aims will be based on getting my Work in Progress (WIP) load down. I currently have numerous kits from magazines I want to do, as well as a fancy dress costume for the youngest craftyguidelet from a year ago, and her birth sampler cross stitch I started over three years ago. Added to that are some flannels that need embroidering for a friend and her son, and some fabric to make into a present for her too.
I also have half finished kits. I’m sure I’ve got a load of candle wax stashed somewhere, and card making decoupage pages.
I keep promising to make things for me and the craftyguidelets. Add some Barbie sleeping bags, various princess fancy dress costumes, quilts, clothes for me, mini bunting for the kitchen and hundreds of other things.
I am also a sucker for new things. On the pile of new crafts to try I have a decoupage kit and a jewellery making kit. I bought felt for Christmas decorations for the website, and I’ve also got some lovely lavender to go in lavender bags. I’ve got a large collection of craft magazines inspiring me to try things, and some wool to make mittens, a scarf and a phone case.
Work in progress? Unfortunately there’s not a lot of progress!
