Old and New Adventures

Just finished another hooked mat and it's bound...hooray! That is one of my goals this year keep up on the binding :)

Another goal is trying new things...I'm taking a couple of online classes just for fun and it also works into my schedule.

The first one is a Life Journal of 2012...going to try and document 2012 and a few things I did along the way.

This project is a class by Stephanie of Homegrown Hospitality.

Next a class in creating something everyday for 30 days.

It's a class of doodling, painting, sketching, taking photos. and looking for inspiration in what is around you. Here is my lil' doodle and watercolor inspired by Kiwi fruit.
This class is by Alisa Burke...stop by her blog you will be amazed at what she creates and with a new lil' baby girl.

And if that isn't enough new starts....

I have been crocheting since I was just a lil' kid but have decided I want to try knitting so found some good online videos and talked with a lady in a yarn shop about some sites online to check out and look it's not pretty by any means but it's a beginning!

So I encourage you to step out of the comfort zone and give something new a try!

Happy Trails...Ginger

Sounds like you're in for some fun with a few new creative endeavors to try out! I just started trying my hand at counted cross stitch and I love it. Not that I needed another hobby...but the more the merrier!!

2012 looks to be very exciting and adventurous for you! I do like the journal idea... might keep me on track for using up what supplies I have... lol! Good luck with the knitting! I gave it a serious try and then went running back to my crochet comfort zone! lol!
