emoticon for sharing ladies!

Mine was a little painted hand print for my Mom (I think it must have been around Mother's Day.) when I was in kindergarten. I'm sure I did other little cards, and such before then but that's the first one I truly remember.

I was in Saudi Arabia and just learning how to crochet. My friend never went anywhere without her shawl. She had a 2 yr.old daughter who used a towel for her shawl so I tried to make her a shawl. It was pathetic but she loved it.

So far there isn't one I wouldn't try again. There's more than one I'm not good at, but maybe with practice or someone teaching me I would get it.
I do craft shows sometimes with one of the kids I nanny for. I help her make jewelry and sell it to donate her profits to a specific charity. Sometimes they're a lot of fun, other times not so much.

I agree about craft fairs and doing crafts as a business. DM keeps trying to interest me in making cards as a business and I am absolutely not interested. It's a creative and FUN activity that I do for family and friends.

for a few years now... my MAJOR Crafting goal... was to get back to crafting...

finally have myself a craft room (buying house... over 5 yrs now moved in)
seemed to never have incentive or time to craft... either work or watching lil grandkids...

well .... no longer working outside home... grandkids are much bigger...

Now I can actually CRAFT in my CRAFT room.... wooohoooo...
so that would be my now and then major craft goal...

final note... thanks to the team... I am CRAFTing regularly emoticon

One of my crafting goals is to get back into it! Used to make cards and scrapbook, but got away from it the last few years. Now is the time to get back into it.

Each new day is a blessing. I am thankful for each day that my eyes open and I take a breath.

I have 2 goals - the first more immediate goal is to get 5 projects crocheted for the ladies' retreat secret sis gifts and cards made at the end of this month - I'm almost there.
My second goal is to make sure I finish the projects I'm working on before starting new ones. I usually like to do 2 or 3 at a time and sometimes one gets forgotten.

Yes, over the years I have participated in card swaps, handmade button swaps, album page swaps, ATC swaps, handmade paper embellishment swaps, ribbon swaps, mystery parcel swaps...I am sure there are more but you get the idea :) I don't tend to do it so much now as I have so much I don't know what to do with. I also give to charity (am running a Cards for the Troops drive again fro the third year, and have given lots of cards/album pages/papercraft supplies to other causes too, but still am blessed with 'way too much! Lol!

I do sometimes, quilt block swaps. Those are supposed to be made into some type of quilt. I have mine in a container just waiting to be made into something. I do often give quilts, esp baby quilts to someone who needs.
