12 Projects for 2012

My mind in constantly whirling and swirling with ideas. Projects for me, projects for the kids, things to do around the house, stuff I want to make in the kitchen, etc. Sometimes these ideas get completed and sometimes they get swallowed up by more ideas. I thought it would be a good way to start out the new year with a month by month list of projects I would like to complete this year.

January: Family Photo Wreath -- This will go in my new laundry room, so it won't be Valentine themed. COMPLETED!

February: Treat Stands -- I saw something like this on Rachel Ray and was dying to make them. COMPLETED!

March: Hand Print Canvas Art -- This will also go into my laundry room.

April: Yarn Wreath with Felt Flowers -- A friend of mine made one of these for our Craft Club Christmas Exchange Party. I just LOVED it. There are tons of examples of them on Pinterest. 

May: Felt Flower Barrettes -- Adalyn really needs these. 

June: Pillowcase Dress -- Now that Addie is walking she can wear dresses and this will be perfect for the summer.

July: Toilet Paper Tube Wreath or Star Wreath I am hosting Craft Club at my house in July. I really want to do a Christmas in July theme. Since last year I felt like I didn't have enough time to make all the things I wanted to. This may change but right now these are the two ideas in my head.

August: Homemade Vanilla Extract -- I use vanilla all the time. I can't wait to make this!

September: Homemade Apple Butter -- I love Apple Butter, but I think it's hard to find good stuff at the store.

October: Peacock Tutu -- This just has to be Adalyn's Halloween costume this year.

November: Homemade Shaped Crayons and Soap Crayons -- Shane will love these.

December: Button Christmas Tree Ornaments -- Just to cute!

Man, this was a hard list to complete because there are just so many cool things out there to make. Hopefully this will keep my wondering mind focused and I can at least get these done and maybe more!

I'll keep you up-to-date on my progress. Have you been motivated to try any new projects this year??
