I crashed and burned this season. I really hope I can reset my crafty mojo this summer. I have a few WIPs that I hope can jumpstart things!

I am so excited to be rejoining this season. My life has been extra hectic and i could not handle everything and all the pressure i was putting on myself, so last season i gave myself a mental break. Now i feel recharged and ready to go!
Thank you for creating such a fun and motivating craftalong!

So, my goal for this season is to get all of the pins PLUS a gold medal! Lofty goal considering how little I have gotten done this year. But, fresh from a relaxing road trip to Canada, I am feeling optimistic!

I have a quick question about the Summer Spook-Down: Do those need to be stand-alone projects, or can they be projects submitted for the other prompts (and can they do double duty for the other pin events?)?

I’m putting together my project tracking list and want to make sure that I have all of my bases covered :smiley:

Oh yes, the Spook-Down projects can pull double duty, too! Thanks for the question - I’ll update those to make it clear.

Excellent! I was hoping you would say that! Thanks for such a quick reply! :heart:

Follow up question @LovelyMiss would “sewing” work?

@Bunny1kenobi @gozer You can pick whatever you want! Paper and sewing are both great options!

I got my spring pins today!

With the sweet card and adorable lavender mini bubble mailer that wants to be some kind of book.

Thanks so much, @LovelyMiss!
