Default Sept 1-Oct 31: "Project Procrastination"

Sept 1-Oct 31: "Project Procrastination"

In this challenge you are to find a project IN YOUR CURRENT STASH that is sitting there waiting for you to love on it again. You already bought the stuff, you have the idea about what you were going to do with it, now it's time to get 'er done!

It could be a small thing - a set of cards, a little box or frame, a little album, or a set of scrapbook pages. (You KNOW you have pictures that you intended to do put somewhere!)

Take a picture of the pile o' stuff. Then finish the project and take another picture. Put them both on your blog so we can marvel at your artistry!

Post a link here to let us know what you are planning to do - include a picture or a link.

Oh yes, I'm in ... it's sad that I have a bin drawer full of "ideas" that never materialized. Pictures coming soon

I actually already did the first thing I had in mind. Not papercrafting, but I made a Lego mat that turns into a bag when you pull a drawstring. No more Lego injuries for me!

Next up is a 7gypsies thing (sort of a row of houses accordion card) that I'd like to do for Fall decor. Or something. I am hoping for a flash of inspiration. It was a "must have".... but clearly not that much!

well ... it's time to get started! I've created a very long list as I have more than 30 days of projects. I'll be starting on Friday, Sept 7 as I'm traveling this week and going through Oct 7. This is a GREAT Idea Mindy and I'm looking forward to this fun challenge

I was procrastinating posting on my blog the pictures that I have been taking for my 30 day photo challenge - but as of last night, I am caught up again.

Now to finish the 3 calendars on my desk and I will feel like I knocked out 6 items on my To-Do List for September.

Sorry, for the busy background of placemats, on first picture. The finished project is individual envelopes for a retreat swap.These are a side step folded project.

the remaining project for this challenge, this week; is the shoebox swap item.
individual kits for each participant at this rereat, for them to put together. that day we will finish each kit from the participant; and come home with about 15 different cards, such fun. So this challenge, was to cut, stamp, and put into envelope to be finish at retreat. I still have some supplies leftover, I guess they go into paper scrap files, mainly. I have more procrastionation projects to work on, thanks for challenge
