How about a VAL?

Do you love yourself? Huh, I hear you ask, what a stoooopid question.  Well, the reason I'm asking is that Valentines Day is coming up and sometimes we don't feel loved on the day of love and I want to fix that.

The idea and the planning

I have so many ideas, most are well...crap and some are good & perhaps even workable.
My idea for the #2015SamplerBlanket is to make a type of quilt thingy, kind of. Well, you see I have a vision to make quilted blocks & embroider things onto them & then crochet them together.
Make sense? Nope.

Project life ... should I? Do you?

I keep hearing things about this thing called Project Life and it looks kinda fun but wonder if I would be able to do it. You need to remember that I am absolutely crap at scrapbooking and still haven't managed to print Delaney's baby photos out.  How much commitment is there? Do you do it weekly or monthly? How basic can you go for it to still look good?

When things aren't as easy as they seem

I somehow keep making more work for myself.

Maybe you could give me some suggestions...

Something fabulous happened to me this morning!
I checked my email (whilst still blurry eyed from sleep) and there was an email stating that I had won a $200 Etsy voucher!!!!!!!! 
Eek!  Two Hundred smackaroos to spend on anything that I wanted in any shop in Etsy!

....but what should I spend it on? This is where I need your help, I'm completely stuck for ideas!  Yep, I know, bit ridiculous isn't it but there is too much to chose from!  Let's see, should I choose this gorgeous necklace, this sloth key holder or this clock stamp. Perhaps there are these rings that are also knitting markers, this yarn dye kit or put the money towards this awesome stained glass.
I really adore this embroidery kit, this doggy planter dish and this terranium.
See, too many choices and I'm sure there are probably a bazillion other fab things to choose from.
So, help me. Do you have a fav Etsy shop or a fav wish item on Etsy???
