Updated To Do List

Now that my cousin’s wedding is over and I’ve completed my last craft show of the year, I feel like I can finally get started on some other projects that have been piling up for quite some time!  A few of these are on my 35 Before 35 list too.  Here is my updated list for the next month or 2:

  • handmade Christmas gifts – haven’t really picked any yet
  • post more product on Etsy
  • take jewelry sets to local stores to sell
  • make the tie-blankets for the boyfriend’s nephews – the gifts are from us both, but I’m making them (3 of them!)
  • maybe make the boyfriend’s nieces wristlets – any tips or tutorials that are quite easy?
  • take photos of all my DIY’s or Stuff I’ve Made to blog about
  • learn about Art Journaling and take it up, maybe buy some books to help (using my reward points from Crowdtap and other survey sites, email for a signup link!)
  • experiment with polymer clay
  • figure out fabric painting, the correct way to do it, then post a tutorial
  • make baby gifts —-because my sister is pregnant with TWINS!!!!!   (have I mentioned, my sister and I are twins??)
  • sell some stuff on Craigslist and ebay – if you are in need of a brand-new still-in-box stroller and car seat, please email me asap!
  • efficiently clean my art/craft room so it is organized and useable!
  • use my Rit dye on the khaki jacket
  • dip dye some article of clothing
  • make a sweater into a skirt
  • embellish some clothes with beads

I’m more than positive I am missing things on this list!

Anyone have any tips or suggestions for me?  Have you attempted some of these DIY’s with great results?  Share in the comments!
