Great Minds Think Alike!

I recently decided that no matter how tired or busy or stressed I am, I have to spend more time on my crafting. I just realised that is the thing that gives me the most fulfilment and enjoyment in life .... apart from snuggling puppies .... so I have to make the effort for myself.

So to inspire me, I decided to join up for some challenges. I joined up for the Black and White Challenge a few weeks ago .... but only just remembered Jackie had emailed me asking me for further info and I had forgotten to reply! So I have done that now and am officially registered.

I also signed up for Dandelion Quilts' Valentines Swap. That should really get me motivated as this one is due in a month!

And I was just visiting Toni's blog and saw that she has signed up for the B&W challenge too (hence the post title), plus another one to finish one WISP/UFO a month. So I had to join this one too! With all of this inspiration, I should be making more time for crafting in 2009!

Vanessa, I love the little bag with the yo-yo's, did you use a yo-yo maker? If not, you need to get one, they are so fun! I signed up for the Valentine's day swap too. I love Valentine's Day, it is my favorite holiday. I sounds like you have a lot of fun projects to keep you busy! How is your weather? I am glad I found your blog. Happy Sewing.......I am your secret Valentine swap, so be expecting a package soon!!!
