How to people who make ATCs count them? I make a LOT of ATCs in a year. maybe by month? I doubt I will post pics of them all. That would be too much.

Still feeling the place out, but I think this thread is one of the best places I can start getting back into the groove. My parents moved to IN from FL back in July 2019 and lived with DH and myself until mid-September before construction was complete on the house they bought, totally derailed the little bit of crafty mojo I was building back up from a several year hiatus…blargh…

I’m back and I’m bad…but in a good way!

Here’s a little bitty list to start, more to come as I think of it, and hopefully items will be crossed off sooner rather than later.

  1. Crystal Light Wallet (like a tea wallet, but with slots for those single-serve drink packet thingies…I get tired of plain ol’ water when I’m running errands all day)
  2. Apron top for me
  3. Lounge pants for me
  4. Lounge pants for DH
  5. Button or Teesha Moore stocking for me
  6. Button or Teesha Moore stocking for DH
  7. Finish 8x10" cross stitch I started in 2019 and mat/frame it
  8. Sunflower quilt (this is an ambitious one as I don’t know how to quilt yet!)

I haven’t done a 50 projects in too long. I’m excited to jump in again this year.

  1. Quilt that’s been a WIP for too long
  2. Winter moose (ceramic figurines that need painted)

I had “make something for myself” on my 2019 goals and only managed to do it at the very end of the year. I make things for other people, but so rarely myself! So most of mine have been on my private list for years… we’ll see how posting publically goes.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe your list could just have an item that is the ATCs per month with a number after it and maybe a little pic collage?

I usually just list them and do a count next to them like this

  1. ATCs - 4
  2. Inchies - zillion
  3. Food - zero

Do you know how we can do those tiny pictures? Thumbnails? I wanted to post in my list but a huge picture came up…not cool since I already posted in a separate thread…

@AIMR you can edit the dimensions. to post that small pic I changed these numbers by dividing the original ones by 4

I stopped doing the 50 things C-A-L when I felt like I was just spamming things over from the Nerd Games, but I’m totally going to spam! I don’t have a formal list (yet), I need to go through and list my WIPS, at least, the rest will be whatever. I do have a goal to make at least ONE project from each of the craft books I have that I haven’t used, yet!

  1. 2020 Goal Book
  2. Little Good Things Partner Craft # 1
  3. Little Good Things Partner Craft # 2
  4. Craft I owe someone # 1
