Personal Projects

This year I've decided to do somethings for me, to challenge myself. A personal project. I read this earlier and I realized I've already sort of done this in several ways. Last year I joined the 2011 Block-A-Month club on ravelry and made an afghan for my future mother-in-law (pictures to come, for some reason I didn't take pictures of the completed afghan) and I fully plan on doing it again this year. Here's the link for this year if you want to join me. I haven't decided what color scheme to use yet though!

Another crochet project I want to do is a monthly amigurumi. I finally got rid of my Women of Hawaii calendar and replaced it with a more family-centric amigurumi calendar. Each month there's a different pattern. I LOVE amigurumi and don't do it enough since I find myself working on afghans a lot. I found another group on ravelry (I effing love that site, can you tell?) that I've joined. Tonight is amigurumi night at work! I'm so excited to start!

Finally, some of you may or may not know I have a nail blog and I'm trying to do a 52 week nail art challenge. I'm a couple weeks behind but plan on catching up with my next two manis.

What about you? Do you have any personal projects for the year?

I have a pen pal!

I signed up for a package pal at C.R.A.F.T. and I'm so excited to make something for her. A package pal is a bit like a pen pal except, well, you make them something handmade and in return she does the same for you. Wow, I'm sure you all figured that out without my explanation. She's linked me to her pinterest account and I think I've found the perfect thing! A couple of things actually!!! Since she has a link to this blog I won't reveal anything, but here's her blog, go check her out! She can sew!

My newest tattoo progress photos

I've been working on this since June, about 9 sessions so far and 2-3 more to go. These pictures are in order from stencil to last weeks session.

Some recent projects

Here are some of my recent projects. My goal this year is to have a post for every project that I complete, along with camera (not cell phone) pictures.

Without further ado:
