Just Another Manic Monday

Le Sigh
  ... I'm beat.  It's been a long day. I guess that's what I get for staying up until 4am watching season 1 of 21 Jumpstreet. That's right my friend, not only do I love Johnny Depp, I love crappy 80's TV shows :)

What  else ? ...
    OH! - While working on a project, I got a great idea that started moshing around in my brain. Unfortunately, With the things I'm working on right now, I won't be able to get started on that project until next week, possibly the week after.

I've noticed this really cool trend of people who are setting blog/crafty goals for the year:

Nerdy Together is taking this year long goal to a place that would probably end up making me insane, but she's doing it - and kicking butt. A scarf a day!!! Can you believe it?! I totally admire that commitment. Also, think it's a killer way to really flex those creative muscles  :D

PuNk rAwK pUrL  is doing this "1300 Things To Be Greatful For" - which I think is a beautiful idea. In a time where things are difficult for many people, it's a good idea to grab a moment to take a look around you and really focus on the things you're grateful for.

Going to make this. Will replace Che's face with the face of another
What I'm planning on is a Throw-Pillow-A-Month . Part of this idea came from a gift I received recently from my bestie Jessica. It's a book on intarsia, (which I have really been wanting to get better at doing.) There was a cool lookling Che Guevara pillow. My Honey has a shirt that in place of Che's face is Corey Feldman and the wallpaper on his phone is Che "Peter Griffin"  as -Hahah!

January's pillow I started today, and  I'm giving myself until Feburary 7th to have it finished completely. I'm not entirely sure what I'm going to do with all of these pillows. A few of them, I know I'm going to keep.
Ya know, I have been wanting to do a Handmade Giveaway... Hmmm...

I just made up my mind. The month of March, I'm going to do a Handmade Giveaway !! So stay tuned!
                .... and what about you, reader person? Do you have crafty goals for 2011?

  1. The main crafty goal I have for 2011 is to make myself a new wardrobe. Most of my clothing is either very out-dated (not in a good way), dowdy, or just plain worn out. I figure I have enough fabric and yarn stashed to do a decent job. Then I might still look dowdy or frumpy, but it will be NEW dowdy and frumpy!

  2. awwww gee! thanks for mentioning me in this post! I LOVE your pillow a month project! LOVE IT!

    I too have that book & when I first got it I was inspired to make tons of knitterly pillows for my home! I haven't started one yet & I have had that book for over a year. haha.

    perhaps following your project will get me fired up again!
    btw- your blog is looking good! Love the header.

  3. @justthreadtwiddling - I was thinking about sewing up some clothes for the boys this year. The only thing is finding good patterns. Everything I find is super cute, girly frilly stuff. I don't want to traumatize them by making them wear girls clothes.... YET.

    @PuNk rAwK pUrL You're welcome! Hey - I think the 1300 things to be greatful for is an awesome idea. I'm thinking about doing it, because that would give me an added blogging goal!
    Between the Intarsia book & Debbie Stoller's new 'Super Star Knitting' - there is SOO much I want to make. Now, I just need to actually DO it - Hahaha!
