Creative Project Ideas and Recipes for the New Year

Written by: | Published: January 08, 2017 | Updated: September 05, 2023

Hello and welcome to a whole new week! How’s the New Year creativity treating you? This week’s Monday Funday features look like so much fun to make. We’ve got some fabulous project ideas and recipes for the New Year, I can’t wait to hear what your favorites are!

Now let’s talk project fun… this time of year I always want to get organized. However, I usually find myself brainstorming a million ideas and getting very little marked off my todo list instead. The idea of “new” makes me want to do new things. Make new things, organize new things, try new things. So this year I decided to try and focus on the new ideas I already had but haven’t tried yet… and maybe then I can get some things knocked off the list. What do you do to stay on track for the new year?

I'm not messy, I'm making art!

Don’t forget to let me know what you’ve been working on or your own favorite projects. Submit your links to the link sharing below for a chance to be featured in next week’s party.

Here at my work space – I’m getting ready to head out of town again for a 3 event trip. I’m going to be talking shop… a little marketing, a little Cricut fun and some crafty inspiration. I’m hoping to see what’s new for the next year while visiting the Craft and Hobby Association Trade show… lovingly re-named Creativation. I can’t wait to share what I learn!
