Top 12 Crafts for 2012

Alright ladies (and maybe guys too... I don't judge). 
I'm ringing in the new year with 12 crafts that I plan on doing this year.


Last year I checked off 3 of the 11 crafts on my list (Yep... over-achiever over here...)
This year I'm going for 3 1/2. You must admire my drive and ambition. 

1. I want to make a freaking awesome Rag Quilt
like they did at I Can Teach my Child




2. I want to make some Felt Flower Bobby Pins
Wish I knew the source.... If you know, let me know :)

3. I want to make a Cute Lace Headband
Like they make at Garlands of Grace

4. I want to sew a Camera Strap
like Allison did on Cluck Cluck Sew

5. I want to Etch Something Cool 
like Ashley did at Make it and Love it

6. I want to make a not-lame Door Wreath
like they did at Our Best Bites

7. I want to transfer a Photo onto Canvas
like they did in Better Homes and Gardens
DIY art display

8. I want to make a Family Board Book
like they did at Chef Messy
Booandhispeeps

9. I want to make a Fabric Garland
like Candace did over at Sparkle Power

10. I want to create my own Bird Nest Necklace
like Sarah did over at Sarah Ortega

11. I want to make my own key lanyard
like they did over at the 36th Avenue

12. I want to Print and USE a Life Planner

I would put a number 13, but really, the 13th thing I want to make is Macaroni and Cheese...and I think that's because I'm hungry. But seriously, who knows?
Is anyone really reading this, or do you just look at the pictures like me...hmmm...I like to kick dolphins. Anyone?

So who's with me!!?? 
What is one project YOU would love to do this year?

Mac and cheese sounds good...but not kicking dolphins. I want to make...something...but I haven't thought that far ahead!

I love that headband...and the board book {and everything else}. I have pinned sooo many things to do on Pinterest it is not even funny. I really want to have a party & make one of those DIY photo "booths" with awesome props.

I like like all of them! Do some of the crafts with me, so maybe I can help your goal of 3.5!

Wow .. that surely sounds fun! :)
I thought you could get started with the canvas print from here http://www.easycanvasprints.com/photos-to-canvas/
it's a website I found recently on this blog.. http://littlelifeofmine.com/2011/10/easy-canvas-prints-photo-to-canvas.html
.. According to the blogger you get a discount too if you like their fb page.. awesome huh? .. I would surely love to get one done.. but it get's way too expensive for me to get it shipped to my country! ..
When I saw them on your post .. I thought you might wanted to start checking off ur list with this..! :D
All the best for the year ahead! Looking forward for more of your lovely works, inshaAllah! :)

Unaiza said...

oops sorry I realised it was a do it yourself project after I clicked on the link! :D That's nice .. now that I know how to do it for free .. I would definitely love to try it out too, inshaAllah! ;)
Waiting to see your photo on canvas project though! :)

However it give them a substantial advantage over your competitors.
Project conclusion and a convention of quality
is probably also readily identified before a show is implemented and this lessens the concerns for both going to parties.
