Jan 2018 to do

Postby Melis » Sat Jan 06, 2018 6:43 pm

I need to keep on top of my to do list.
1 female birthday card
1 male birthday card
I want to make something every month from pinterest. This month it is the snap purses using old retractable metal rulers.
At least 5 Christmas cards.
Update my blog at least twice a month.

Lets see what I manage to get ticked off!!
What is everyone else up to?

I bought some fabric with cats on - that i plan to make into totes, but can't decide whether to fancy them up a bit.

Been looking for inspiration

Got my youngest son to buy me a retractable metal ruler today. 79p from Wilkinsons. My fabric stash is piled up in the dining room ready to start sewing tomorrow. I have made a fabric wrap for charger cables today. I have also made a small stocking but it isn't great. I think I've made it too small and the lining too big.

Just getting on my craft room will be an achievement, actually making something......ermmmm...unlikely.

GOALS!
Spend 30 minutes each week tidying and organising my room.

Week 2 DONE

Well I didn't get any Christmas cards made and I didn't make the snap bags until today. They turned out brilliantly. The first one was made with some of the fat quarters from aldi. It is perfect for my glasses that I keep in my sewing box. Then I made a case for a mobile phone.

Oh yes, please share.

Well I failed miserably with my January goals! Although I did get into my craft room over the weekend and started yet another attempt to organise and de-clutter.

I even managed to decoupage a few of my old cardboard folders that I keep my A5 card in. Today I have organised the card into colours and put them all back on the shelf.

I am trying to start blogging again too. :roll:

I found a tutorial through Pinterest. I watched a video first. They were very easy to do.
