50+ projects (ideas) for 2012

Craftster.org has a craftalong section where people list 50 crafts they want to do in the coming (present) year and then you can check them off as you go along.

I figured it would be easier to keep track of them here as well than just on a forum that will eventually grow to be over 500 pages long.

So my goal is to not only update when I finish projects but also blog a lot of them so wish me luck…

Here is my list for 50 project ideas for 2012

  1. OK, inquiring minds want to know – what is the Question Me art journal for? A class? A quiz? Your own commendium of stuff??

    • it is a long thin journal that I am using to answer a lot of questions, I have a list of random questions and I pick one at random and then journal on it, the whole journal will be full of answers and writing inspired by these questions
