I am going to work very hard to actually keep up this blog. I won't call it a New Year Resolution; it is just a goal to get back into blogging and keeping up with sharing and tracking what I am working on.
What is the Great Craftdown of 2018? What is the goal? What and I am doing to measure my success or failures? Well, that is fairly simple...
- To spend less that $150 total on supplies- This excludes things like glues, mats for the Cricut, thread needed to match fabric...I haven't made a choice about if patterns count.
- To use up extra supplies in my craftroom
- To purge things I will never use-gift/giveaway (if I ever have a follower....)
- To try new things (there are plenty of new crafts in my stash)
So far this year, I have completed some projects. I only have one picture though.
I knitted a hooded poncho and matching cowl. I used up 12 balls of Patons Bohemian yarn.
I also have made a Valentine's Wreath. This one I do have a picture of. I used some 12x12 paper I had from last year, boa from Christmas 2016 at Hobby Lobby and a plastic ornament from who knows when.
I did finish off 2 shawls I started in 2017. One was using some old Patons yarn I had on hand after making a Spring poncho. The other was using Premier Sweet Roll. I used the left over Sweet Roll to make a scarf and headband.
So far I have spent $0 on crafting in 2018.
