2012 Monthly Homemaking/Crafting Plan
Since joining Pinterest last year, I have a huge list of projects I would like to do! I knew if I made a list and focused on one thing a month, and also had accountability on my blog that I would probably get some projects done. So here is my list, which I will be updating at the end of each month sharing with you how the project turned out!
A few months ago I purchased a Canon Rebel XS. I love using it, but I want to learn how to use all of the features and be able to take it off the auto button to shoot pictures. With a newborn in the house this will be the perfect month to experiment with it, and read up on ISO, Aperture, and all that fun stuff! I'll post some pictures if any turn out halfway decent!
Here are some websites I plan to read and learn from.
Something I have always wanted to make but never tired is Challah Bread. So this will be the month to try it! I might use this recipe here unless someone else shares a better recipe with me. :) I think braiding the bread looks fun!
Since our oldest daughter will turn four this month, I know I will be doing some sort of sewing project for her birthday, whether it is a dress, skirt or jumper.
With Spring here I'm always in the mood to start sewing some new clothes! This dress has been on my list to sew for a while now, and it looks like it would be easy to nurse in! I'm going to buy the pattern and sew it up this month.
This is the month to make these super easy looking fabric flowers! Can't you picture these worn pinned on a shirt, clipped in your hair, or several bunched together at the waist of a dress? So cute!
I'm going to learn how to make liquid hand soap using a bar of Mrs. Meyers soap!
Learn how to make cream pies-specifically coconut cream pie for my husband!
Make Frozen Hashbrowns from scratch.
Sew a reversible handbag.
Make Homemade Wheat Thins.
Make a Pumpkin Roll. I've never made one before!
Make Whoopie Pies.
If any of you have any craft/homemaking projects planned for this year I'd love to have you share what they are!
