36 Projects

My friend Karen asked recently how I was doing with my goal of 36 projects in my 36th year. I had to admit that I am not doing so well. I even contemplated just quitting and chalking it up to a good idea that doesn't really work for me. That is a bit difficult to do, however, because I shared the goal here. I have decided that I will continue on. I am not convinced I will complete all 36 before my birthday, but I will keep working toward that goal none-the-less.

Here is my original list of projects with some updates:
Here are the projects I've completed that weren't on my original list:
I've posted 9 projects so far. I think I have three or four others already completed but not yet posted. I also have some good ideas I haven't tried yet. Who knows, maybe this check in will be just the motivation I need to get all the way to 36!

My main goal is to be creative outside of scrapbook pages. I would love your ideas for other projects! Do you have any suggestions for fun, useful projects?

  1. You are doing great Connie!! Are you only counting each new idea, not how many times you completed a new project? Maybe you could think about treat boxes for the kids teachers or Valentine's day, bookmarks for you or the kids. They can even be made and given as a gift with a new book. Crowns or tiaras for the kids as a special day, an organizational center for your kitchen or hallway that can be used for menu planning, activity planning or just general what to do each morning/evening for the kids or even chore charts. You could make coasters. I've seen scrapbook paper used as a top for ceramic coasters that was mod podged to seal it. THat could be a fun gift :) If I think of any more I'll be sure to share.
