You may be wondering: why is the series starting in February instead of January?
The answer is simple: in this series we want to fight UFOs!
Nothing against extraterrestrial entities ;) UFO in this context stands for UnFinished Objects.
I don't know about you, but I have several UFOs from the past year that are "carrying over" 2015. So to give yourself (and myself as well!!) the chance to work on those projects, to clear up the to-do list and be ready for the wonderful projects of SYS2015, I decided to leave January "free"! :)
So from February to November we will make together several amazing FO (finished objects) using all the different techniques listed above! And by December 2015 you may have a pretty big list of cute gifts ready to be handed to several lucky recipients!! :)
And who is going to teach you all these different techniques?
This is the lineup of amazing artists! (in alphabetical order, because we want to keep a little element of "surprise"):

That's it for today!
