    Hi everyone

    CraftingMad - can I join please? I promise to try harder than the list time I took part (probably 2018 or was it even 2017 :o) , my stash has grown and I really need to get my crafting mojo back. Nothing made or de-stashed yet but have plans for making a start tomorrow.

    I'll aim for 52 (for now and hopefully be able to achieve that and more).

    Catch you all tomorrow with an update.

    Another trauma blanket that I knitted yesterday got decorated today, so another one to add to my total. They are only about 12" by 6" so don't take long.

    Did have a mini sort out of my card stocks as well, nothing disposed of, just tidied up for decluttering another time.

    Everyone sounds like they are doing well, maybe this year will be the one to finally make a dent in the stash!!!

    So today i have gifted 22 sewing patterns and 17 sewing magazines to a sewing group that are run by a friend. Thats a huge destash for me as i hoard my patterns and magazines. I have now stopped the buying the magazines as it came to nearly £18 a month for nothing as i barely glanced at them.
    So that's 41/50, so i will up that to 150, so total 41/150.
    Crafting mad where did you get your reindeer pattern from?

    Well done Rosie51. I really must try and destash some of my supplies. I have so many I know I'm never going to use al of them!

    I cheated with the felt reindeers and bought some ready cut ones from The Works not last year but the year before I think :)

    Of course you can ziggy2407 - its great to see you onboard again :D

    Don't worry I have failed miserably at all my previous attempts as well and my stash just keeps on growing but I'm hoping this is the year where I finally can achieve my goal (even though I've set myself a crazy total!) :D:D:D

    I cannot wait to hear all about your beautiful creations :):):)

    Lets hope so loopychriss :p

    I had a bit of a tidy yesterday too (not that you can tell as I have so much but the thought was there) :D:D:D

    You are storming along and putting me to shame - at this rate you will smash your target by the end of the month :rotfl::rotfl::rotfl:

    I'm still not really feeling it today (getting up at 6.30am was a bit of a shock to the system :(:(:() but I have to get back to my orders I have had come in so hopefully will be able to declare a few more makes later today.

    I decided to ease myself gently into it today though and make a couple of quick and easy notebooks I came across on a you tube video. The video made them look so easy but my efforts look like a two year old has tried to make them!!!! :eek::eek::eek

    How can folding and cutting some paper and then stapling in the middle be so hard! :mad::mad::

    They may look awful (and they may also end up in the bin!) but I'm declaring a further two makes towards my total as I whether I keep them or not I did use up two 6x6 paper sheets which is not much I know but at least that's two sheets less than I had at the start of the day :D:D:D

    So my total is now 20/2020 - only 2000 makes left to go to reach my target :j:j:j

    Popping in again quickly to report a further 3 makes - all sticker sheets for orders received (18 sheets in total but just declaring 3 as for three different orders). This takes me to 23/2020 - less than 2000 makes to go now :j:j:j

    I've also just received two orders from Create and Craft (I ordered in their sale at the end of December so haven't broken the spending ban this year yet :D) and have parcelled up some of the items to return straightaway as they were not inspiring me at all.

    On the plus side though a couple of the items seemed to have sparked my creativity again so I cannot wait for tomorrow to come so I can get playing and hopefully crank up my total some more :j:j:j

    Hope you are all having a lovely crafty day :)

    That is gorgeous - your mum is very lucky to be receiving a beautiful card like that :)

    Well done on your first make - I cannot wait to see more of your wonderful creations :)
