I went through my little dungeon of dying projects and found quite a few unfinishable things I can work on during this 31 Days Challange. That, along with my unending Ravelry and Pinterest plans, make for quite a month. Here’s where I’m starting, enough projects for a whole rainbow of colors!
The List of Unfinishables
The Washer Necklace
The story: I am lucky to have a super rad group of crafters to laugh with here in Texas. My friend holds a monthly Crafternoon for us where we can work on a group craft or just any of our ongoing projects. This month, we decided to make this beautiful necklace from painted washers. Great idea! Problem is, mine didn’t turn out so beautiful.
Finishing Problem: I hate everything.
The Second Holden Shawlette
The story: I’ve mentioned here before that I have some of the best friends a gal could ask for. My lovely friends back in Cali are at the top of that list and I miss them so much. To say thank you for their love and support, I wanted to make them their own Holden Shawlette since they liked mine so much. They even picked out their colors! The problem is, that decision was made over a year ago and I still haven’t followed through, having only made one so far (and that was recently).
Finishing Problem: Procrastination, procrastination, procrastination.
The Tempting Grub
The story: Ah, Pinterest. You are the devil. I spend so many useless minutes pinning away on my boards, making plans for delicious food I am likely never going to make. This yummy-looking Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork and these zucchini fritters were a few of the first things I ever pinned. The problem is, I still have never tasted them.
Finishing Problem: I suck at this.
The Clutch Crutch
The story: I made this beautiful purse ages and ages ago and completely forgot about it. That is the best thing about moving, you find things! Did I mention that I started this project in 2010?!! The problem is, I need materials to finish it. Shopping? That’s a good problem.
Finishing Problem: I forgot.
The End of a Series
The story: If you are an intense reader with book ADD like me, chances are you have lots of unfinished books on your nightstand. The biggest one haunting me? Mockingjay. Yes, the last book in that amazing series that is called Hunger Games. The problem is, I’m too sad for it to end so just plain refuse to read it.
Finishing Problem: Painful, mental block. I just can’t, okay?! leave me alone…
The New Craft
The story: “Look at this! Ooh, look at this!” That is what I sounded like the first time I looked up crochet patterns on Ravelry. The possibilities were endless….and so is my to-do list. This was the first pattern I was just DYING to make. The problem is, I still haven’t.
Finishing Problem: Too many projects, not enough time.
The Storage Solution
The story: Wow, any one of the project in this Pinterest board of mine could be in this challenge. Why Buy It When I Can Make It? Well, because as history indicates, I probably WON’T! I only picked this wonderful project because I love mason jars and at some point was so excited about making some bathroom storage that I actually bought some of the materials needed to finish it. Pinterest, the land of good intentions.
Finishing Problem: Too much Pinterest planning.
Deep breath. Let’s jump right in guys.
