One of my new year’s resolutions is to get my fabrics organized in a crafty way and share it here, and another is to get you all to subscribe to Prudent Advice and read my book.

My NY Resolution is to use what I have…both in my craft room and in my life in general. Use the stuff I have, the strengths I have, and most importantly, the tools I have, to improve the daily lives of the people I love.

I want to finish 12 scrapbooking projects this year – one a month! I also want to sew more of my kids clothes, make (and finish) more quilts and maybe even start my own handmade wedding invitation business! To ambicious? Maybe!!


My new year resolution is to finally learn how to sew on my sewing machine. I received it last Christmas and attempted it once. What a waste I know-but not this year. This book would really give me some inspiration-perfect!

Happy Birthday!

My grandmother left several quilt squares and pieces that she had worked on before she died 10 years ago. I've been holding onto those pieces, and my goal for this year is to finally finish one of the quilts that she had begun, and find other ways to use some of the other pieces that she started.


oh…i JUST saw this book the other day….. i NEED it!

resolution = to stress less and live in the moment more. cliche' maybe. but no less important. i am way too worked up most of the time and it's rubbing off on my kiddos.

i have recently started sewing…yay! picked up from my very talented mother. so also, would like to enter some of my goodies in local fairs, festivals or Etsy, when i feel they are worthy 🙂



Happy Birthday and thanks for the opportunity! One (!!) of my resolutions is to make more time for me! Sounds selfish, but when you're a mom you need to regroup and recharge!


I'm going to finish EVERY project I start. No more UFO's. lol. If I'm not pleased with how it turns out, I'll donate to a charity house or store. No more waste for me!!!

Karina - Project K

ohhh, i sooo want this book.
Well, my new years resolution as a whole was to make Project K pan out…I have a craft/food/travel blog at
But more specifically, I want to find a better way to store my threads (colour co ordinated of course!) I've read a couple tutorials on the net, but still nothing for me, just yet…hope I win! I have so many scraps left from my nursing scrubs.
Thanks, love your blog!


I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
