Need a bigger box

Did I ever tell you that I have a box filled with projects that have never been finished? Well I do. I don't know how many things I have in there and I'm not going to count because I just don't want to know.
I have another project that will most likely end up in the box.
I saw these felt sugar cookies in one of the magazines I recently bought and decided to make some. I guess I should have started a little sooner because I didn't get them done. Unfortunately when I was cleaning my stuff off of the dining room table these got put in to a stack of magazines and set in my craft room where I quickly forgot about them. Well I guess I have a head start on next years halloween projects. I think I better find a bigger box for all of my works in progress (or more like lack of progress)

Well they are small you know - easy to get scooped up. Maybe you should get smaller boxes and then assign unfinished projects to a box of similar items...A holiday box, a greeting card box etc.

Hey Ann...congratulations on the head-start for next fall!!

Well....I have a confession too...my box turned into a closet...which turned into an entire room of "unfinished projects". If only there were more hours in a day!! Those felt cookies are super cute!!

I don't tend to have many crafty projects that I do but I do have three lots of knitting on the go at the moment. My knitting goes into a big box so I'm sure I can fit plenty more in there!!

I have a bag with two unfinished projects in there. Your felt cookies look cute even though they're not finished yet :)

OR, next time you sell at a craft store, take the box and sell the whole box as a grab box...OR you could take a day off from work and spend the whole day completing the box...OR you could ignore me and do what you want to

Oh cute felt sugar cookies! I know the way it goes - so many ideas, not enough time!

I don't have a box full of projects, I have a whole closet full of them. It is so easy to put things down and forget about them. We understand perfectly. Have a great day and our best to Duke.

Well you'll do what projects you want and not those that you don't. It works for me. Okay, maybe a bigger box too.

Have a terrific day Ann. My best to the little man of the house, Duke. :)

I'm sure you're like me in that aspect....heck I have a tall kitchen trash container filled with 'unfinished'. But, I like what you've started. And, by the way, I just finished posting about a gnome I made from your inspirational post the other day.

PS....love the new Beggin Strips post below. That Duke needs a shampoo tho. LOL He's such a doll.

I was going to say that you aren't doing too badly if you only have ONE box... My friend has TONS of boxes of unfinished projects....

Love the candy corn!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Maybe you need a bigger space to keep all your crafty things like a room the size of a certain Mancave. Yeah, that's what you need! :)

SweetMarie said...

you should be a pre-school teacher or a crafts person at a senior citizens home. :) Take Duke with you and you two would be so much fun!!!

At one of my bridal showers I got a gift basket of holiday related items of useful gifts to decorate the apartment for the holiday...and I finally got everything put away AFTER Halloween but I still put out the soap dispenser. It was too cute not to.

Well, with them being made out of felt, they would have a much different texture than what I can remember ever tasting before, but I did used to drink an awful lot...

Donna said...

One box? Really? One? I have a whole room of unfinished craft projects, LOL!

Sharkbytes said...

I could probably free up a whole roomful of space if I got rid of the unfinished projects. Sigh... but I'm not as bad as I used to be because I seem to start fewer of them.

I have a STACK of boxes and a running list of WIPs that hangs on one of my shelves. The list has been moved to the shelf above because it got so long! Not joking. I have been feeling really down on myself - this post cheered me up. Thanks Ann! :)
