WIP Wednesday: Future Edition

Since this was a bit of an off Christmas for me, I made sure to keep an eye out for crafty ideas for next Christmas, when (hopefully) I'll have my own place again. One thing I plan to make I actually saw in a store. It was some pretty simple modern garland that was made up of large circles of patterned paper connected to each other with clips. I should've taken a picture but didn't. But I figured it would be pretty easy to DIY with some scrapbook paper and cardstock. The day after Christmas I went to Joann's and picked up a bunch of Christmas paper pads for 70% off. I'm also thinking of using the paper to create a banner like this one. I love everything in that picture. I'll also make some trees similar to that, which I found a tutorial for here. And then there's a wreath. I've never had one before, but always like they way they look. I'm thinking about doing something like this, partially because it gives me an excuse to buy yarn. (Side note: I'm becoming more and more minimalist as I get older but I always want to buy more craft stuff. It's ridiculous).

For a non-holiday project, I'll be doing something like this, since I got the postcards for Christmas. Actually, the project is the reason why I wanted them in the first place. Ideally they'll end up in my new awesome craft room with all my books.

As for stitchy things, right now I'm working on a dinosaur pattern for my nephew's birthday that's coming up in a few weeks. I'll also be doing another Phat Quarter swap that has a music theme. I've got some general ideas for what I want to do but I won't narrow it down until I find out who my partner is.

I totally failed to stitch my 12 ornaments. I completely lost interest in it and gave up. Still working on the square stitch which may be done next week. I've started to lose interest in that one too, I think because it's not a pattern I created.

Next week there will be pictures!
