52 Lists: Week 13

I'm still trying to catch with Moorea Seal's 52 list project! I will get there some day, hopefully soon!! Week 13, is to list the things that you want to make.  I had to do a lot of editing for this list, because I literally want to make everything!!  I narrowed it down to more practical things, and to things that I know I can do or figure out on my own.  

Here's my list:
-repurpose furniture -furniture -jewelry -print canvas -silk screen bags & clothing -slippers -photo book -corn hole set -pottery -bling things -brine shirts -air plants -pot plants -modge podge
 -bedazzle shoes & clothing -make paper -make stamps -create a card & gift program for sick & elderly patients 
-a craft & design workroom.

I've always had a thing for furniture.  I am not really sure what it is, but I love it!  All types, all colors, all textures.  I have always wanted to do wood working, even though I failed terribly in wood shop in intermediate.  I've been wanting to learn how to properly use wood cutting tools and start making all sorts of things with wood.  I really want to start wood burning.  I didn't put that on the list, because I really don't know how to do it, so it would be something that I have to learn first.  

Silk screening has been something that I've been wanting to do for a while now.  I have all these ideas that I want to do, but have never taken the time to actually do them.  I would love to do baby onesies or kids t-shirts and bags!  I'm getting excited just typing this!! haha! 

I put pottery on the list, even though I really don't have any formal training in pottery, I think I could mold something cool.  I love free form and unstructured pottery.  I would love to make little pots for plants.  Which brings me to the air plants and pot plants on my list.  I love plants and flowers.  There's something soothing about them, and I love the nurture aspect of it all.  When you help something grow, you take pride and feel a sense of accomplishment!  I especially love tiny plants, I think they are just too cute.  they also make great decor and gifts!  

A craft and design workroom is something that I've always wanted!  I see all these craft rooms and I envy every single one of them, no matter how big or how small.  I had a plan for a room in my house, but that fell through and the room is currently being occupied.  Back to the drawing board, still trying to find a better system for organization and work space.  One day...

Just a little insight on some items on my list.  

What are some things that you want to make?

Cheers! A toast to creativity!


  1. can't tell you how many times i grabbed a chair off the side of the road (someone else's trash) thinking i could transform it into something amazing! i never get around to it and it ends up back on my curb!

    Sunglasses Giveaway!

    1. I'm the same way! My mom has a friend that goes to a lot of garage sales just for that, he repurposes furniture and he rents out an apartment that's fully furnished with all the gems that he freshens up from garage sales.

  2. Oh, I hope you do get that workroom made. There is nothing like having your own private corner to retreat to.

  3. Thanks!! I hope so too!! It's coming slowly...
