National Craft Month


I had no idea that there was a national craft month!  I found out on the 3rd, which was timely since I'd made the ATCs on March 1st and 2nd.  I decided to try and work on and/or complete at least one thing, per day, all month.  Not sure how successful that'll be, but so far this is what I've gotten done. 

March 3, continuing to work on celestial cross stitch.  Projects in progress that are worked on every day will be considered  'craft of the day'.  

March 4, three more map pendants of places I love and a peace sign patch pendant.

March 5, dragonfly necklace

Also March 5, I tried a couple of tiny 'hurricane lamps', made from a bead, push pin and wire, with ring on the bottom.

March 6, beaded bracelet.

Not sure if I can keep up for the whole month but I'll give it the ol' college try!

    1. Thanks Jo! Well it's nearly 4 pm and I haven't really made a separate craft for today. lol I have, however, been outlining the cross stitch so that counts.

  3. If anyone can be crafty every day for a month, it's you, JoJo. Not only that, but your crafts will be high quality - as always.

    Be well, my friend.

    1. Thanks Elsie! My only regret is that, because I don't work anymore, I have no reason to wear jewelry every day like I used to.
