This weeks Missa Makes

Finally got a chance to fit in a bit of craft
Some pillows for the reading corner

Some dividers for my Filofax in an attempt to get organised. Ha Ha! 

And a dress for Charlotte.
What have you been making?

Get it done - Projects to finish

I saw this post by Kellie and thought what a great idea I'll do a blog post on that too.
Then I went into my craft room to take photos of my unfinished projects and the ones I'd bought the supplies for but never actually started. I took 3 photo's before I realised there were just so many things I needed to finish or even start and I'd be there forever taking photos.

I need a saying like" my eyes were bigger then my belly" but for craft projects instead!

So instead here's a list of the projects I'd like to complete by the end of the year.

2013 project life album - needs journaling, fillers and embellishments
My childhood project life album
Happy embroidery
Door knob jewellery hanger
Coin quilt - I'm up to the quilting step (it's been like that for over 2 years)

Still to be finished but not by the end of the year
Joshua's baby album
Charlotte's baby album
Convert all card fronts to actual cards
Selvedge pin cushions (and list in etsy or made it shops)
Crochet dish cloth
Christmas tree skirt
365 journal
Donna Downey album fabric album
Fairy sand castle quilt
British Guard blanket
Now there are probably a few more projects stashed around the place and I haven't included any of the fabric I've bought for particular sewing projects either.

One time at craft club....

I actually got a chance to add some more squares to my Happy embroidery at our first community craft night this week.  It was great to sit down and craft with other local crafters.

Only 8 more squares to go!

Creating my vision board.

I had been wanting to make a vision board for awhile, but never actually did it in case I mucked it up.
Guess what I didn't and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
I love the balance of words and images.
Have you made a vision board?  Do you think it has helped reach your goals?

Craft Group is happening.

So this year one of my goals was to craft more.
So far it hasn't really happened because I haven't made time to do it, but all that is about to change.
I've started a local community craft group and our first night is just over a week away.
Since I'm the organiser there is no option for me not to go - so I should get to do some craft with some other crafty people!
I'm really excited about this little group. (I hope some people turn up on the night)

Something I made

With one of Joshies stick people drawings as inspiration,
I whipped up this little necklace in just a couple of hours
(in between dinner, baths and bedtime stories).

OLW so far

This year I picked 'Me' as my One Little Word.
I'm a little slow in sharing my pages (probably doing them too!)
But here are my pages for January and February.
