Organization and Resolutions

So I am doing several things this year. I have been on Craftster for over 4 years now (in December 2010 it will be 5 years!) and I just love the site. There are so many helpful people on there. You can also find just about any craft and creative process that you want to know about.

There are plenty of craft-a-longs on craftster as well. I will be participating for a few until I get tired of them. A craft-a-long is a thread on craftster where several individuals decide to craft along the same (often lose) guidelines and post pictures of their crafts. I will of course update here as well as on Craftster. I am going to be doing the 50 crafts for 2010 and the stash busting craft-a-long. The 50 crafts will give a timeline while the stash busting one will help me stay on budget this year.

Some of my goals for 2010

  1. Examples for my Teen Center Programs
  2. PDF Tutorials for Teen Center Programs
  3. Fabric Gift Bags for Next Christmas
  4. Begin an Etsy Store
  5. Create a logo and personal brand
  6. Art for my Senior Seminar
There is much more that I will accomplish this year, this is just a taste for now.

New Etsy Shop

Okay! I have been super busy this year. Not olnly have I moved, started my senior year of college and taken a few Spanish courses. But I have finally gotten into the world of online selling. I know right! It first started with selling a few thigns on But now Ill be adding to an etsy shop. Right now I don't have any pictures but Ill be updating here a lot more frequently. My lovely blog readers will be the first to know if I have a sale, or special right here in this space.

In other news, I searched 'one crafty army bride' in google and my site was the first to pop up (besides the US army site, but does that really count?). These are exciting times.

More photos and goodness later :)

My next big project.

So I spent most of my Tuesday evening dying this yarn. I have work this weekend but hopefully sometime this weekend I might rinse out the yarn and let it dry. I am a little nervous as to how well the colors will come out. this is the first time I have dyed yarn. So I am letting the dye set (translation: I got distracted and haven't had a chance to actually see what happened) I have done tie-dye and I used the same method of mixing for the dye. This is all 100% cotton yarn and it was all white when I started. So here is hoping :)

This is a test post to make sure that I have done everything right. I needed to change my email and this sure is a lot more work than I thought it would be. But enjoy this photo ;)

Yay! It snowed here yesterday and I went out for a tiny bit to shoot pictures. But the cold chased me back inside. That is OK though, I got some funny pictures of my mom cleaning off her car. And this one. I really liked this one so I thought I should share :)
