50 Projects, More or Less, 2024


(placeholder picture until I can find another one…my old garden)

Crafting is part of our lives or else we would not be on this fabulous site! So, let’s share our projects and keep track of our accomplishments in this craftalong. Whether you do 1 or 101, you are using the creative side of your big old brain! Go with the flow and enjoy the process.

Sometimes the projects are for others, sometimes they are for yourself. Sometimes they serve a purpose, sometimes they are for no purpose at all , except pure enjoyment!

Have fun…and do whatever you need for yourself…we are here to cheer you on and ooooh and ahhhh over every single post!

Definitely read this as “head banger” at first :laughing:. Also, I’m pretty sure once you’ve bought an Alisa Burke class you have it forever, as long as you have the password info.

You don’t need to post in the thread…just your post. If you bookmark it, it is easy to just go to your own page. Some people do it as the project gets done, others do it in chunks.

I list what I complete and then add photos when I have time…and you don’t even need to post photos on your own list if you just want to post in other threads on LC! Be flexible with yourself…this is not meant to be a stressor! No dreading allowed!
