Can’t wait to start my craft projects this year

Reserved for my 50 projects list…

Ok. Now it feels like a new year, because I just put my first FP on my list after giving it its own topic last night. WOO!

So I don’t have a list up but I did decide to start noting down my projects so now I will know (if I remember to write them down XD) what I have done this year.

I did two this weekend first up I made a couple masks for a friend and I to wear to a live show for NADDPOD last night. I don’t have pictures of my friends but I love how mine turned out. I used some iron on vinyl and my cricut to do the quote and potion bottle.


And then I had a couple small picture frames and some photos I got from work last year at my old job. So I did want any child would do and made favorite grandkid photo frames with my picture. Again I used my cricut to cut some vinyl. I tried some dollar store vinyl and I think for a dollar pretty decent. (I did share this project with my friends and one said that the photo looks like I’m super uncomfortable and honestly always in photos). I maybe should’ve done a different color vinyl or trimmed the photos a little but I think it’s fine.

This was my weekend I guess as I got two more projects done.

First a bowl cozy. I wasn’t sure what to get for my grandpa for a Christmas but this seemed like a good gift. Probably will make some cookies or something to go with it.


Second I made my roommate and I matching ice cream cozies. They hold a pint of ice cream and now are super cute!

Thank you! Honestly our apartment is just so cold that even if we want ice cream it’s no fun holding the containers so these help. And I like that they match!
