handmade update

last year, i took the handmade challenge floating around on facebook.  you can see that post here.  i took the same challenge this year.  last year i finished my challenge before mother's day rolled around.  this year, not so much.  it's already nearing the end of july and i haven't done one.single.project.  do i have things in mind? do i have the materials? yes and yes.  so what's my deal?  i'm sure i could throw all kinds of excuses out there about how moving and potty training take up sooo much time.  but they really are just excuses.  so i'm throwing this update out there as a little kick in the butt reminder to me.  i need to be accountable!  i'm hoping that the craft fair this weekend helps motivate me as well.

do any of you have an unfinished project lying around? what motivates you to get back to it?  oh, and if you haven't already done so, enter my contest to win some art!


  1. umm no comment on my progress :)

  2. Ate you going to the etsy craft fair? I would love to learn how to sew, maybe when Kai starts taking naps I can learn!

    1. i'm planning on going to that same summer fair you, corey and i went to awhile back! it's actually next weekend, not this weekend. good luck with the sewing! i bet you'll make kai some very cute things. :)

  3. Oh my, unfinished is the operative word!
    2 baskets of knitting projects in various stages, lots of beading (still in the bags), a quilt I began for my great grandson, and moving!!
    Oh My...........
