Oh yes Shannon, you definitely need to give it a go. Diamond painting is so fun and relaxing. Im itching to make another one!

I like the plastic canvas, not to costly yet beautiful items can be made.
I also love the pumpkin ideas! Maybe incorporate gifting a home baked pumpkin goodie in true farmgirl fashion?
I would love to learn to weave, also want to learn to tat, cannot figure it out from videos, cannot find anyone to tech me. Some day.

Great ideas you all have.

Blessings

Krista - I haven't done any diamond painting, but am hoping to, one day. Other ideas could be weaving or whittling.

Shannon I like the pumpkin one. That would definitely be something I would be interested in. Also the diamond painting one. I love to do diamond painting and would definitely work on that badge. The pressure cooker one sound interesting too. Im really enjoying these ideas you have!

Plastic canvas badge....
Beginner: Start with something small, that doesn't require attaching pieces together, such as a coaster set, using at least three different stitches (including the overcast stitch to "finish" the sides)
Intermediate: Make a project that requires attaching pieces, such as a jewelry box or tissue box cover, using two new stitches.
Expert: Make a 3D project, such as a sculpted eagle. Also, teach another person how to craft with plastic canvas.

Pumpkin badge.... you could plant pumpkins, use your pumpkins to make a desert, use your pumpkins to make each of the three meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)

Another idea... diamond painting seems to be all the rage right now... you could do something with that.
Or sewing clothing, starting with something simple, such as a skirt with elastic, then doing something with button holes, and then maybe a zipper.

Shannon, I like the pie badge as well. The best part would be eating the pies lol! What would the pumpkin badge be about?

I am loving the new binder! I had all of my badge info printed off and it has been in a much larger binder but it was kind of heavy and awkward. This new binder is so much nicer!
I thumbed through the badge requirements and got reacquainted with the badges that I had been working on. I am really excited to get going again....just what I needed for some inspiration!
Shannon....I am all over your Pie Badge idea!!!!

Good morning Shannon,
What are you thinking for Plastic Canvas? How about taking a stab at the three levels for us?

I have been trying to brainstorm possible new badges that we could work towards. This is what I have come up with, so far:
- Fermenting badge
- Pumpkin badge
- Pie badge
- Plastic canvas

My merit badge binder arrived. Glanced through it and excited to get started! Shared by discussion, with my group last night they were excited as well, however last night was our group meeting, so they need to wait a month to see it!

Good luck to each as you work on yours.

Blessings

I ordered my merit badge planner. So excited! Not sure when it will arrive so until it does, deep cleaning rooms so I have a little time to work on them when it arrives. I really like the idea of a planner, I had printed it off before and placed into a binder but this way I have the updated version.

I ordered a binder to drive myself to actually work on the merit badges this year. My goal is to be online (watching YouTube and Netflix and other things that waste time) and focus on reading, writing, and trying to complete merit badges. I'm so excited for the binder. Mine came yesterday.

I love the binder idea! I decided to treat myself to one. It will be much handier than the LARGE binder I am currently working with.
I completely understand, MaryJane! There are more merit badges than I will probably ever get finished. One of my 2020 goals is to work on completing more of them. My problem is...new year! new projects! what can I start? Wait a minute....I am still working on that Expert level badge for Finishing Those UFO's. Probably a good thing there aren't new merit badges this year! haha!

I just saw the binder too. It looks good. I'm glad there is something to help keep merit badges organized with. It should really help with getting more badges completed this year.

MaryJane,
Thank you! One of the things I am trying to purpose to do this year is work on more badges. I am woefully behind where I would like to be with them. We certainly understand and I love the look of the new planner!

Sorry to disappoint, but we put our energies into the planner this year instead of new badges. We decided there are still plenty of badges yet to be earned. If you have some suggestions for new badges, please let me know. I'm all ears!
