@40 Challenge Update - End of 2014

My @40 challenge was originally intended to run from May 7th 2013 to May 6th 2014. Then of course I realized that I had taken on too many challenges for this to be feasible, many challenges were weekly or monthly, so a lot of work.

However, taking stock at the end of 2014, I have completed 20 of the 40, have 12 in progress and haven't started 8 of them - see below. Most of the ones not started involve long term craft projects that i keep putting off. Nonetheless, these are all challenges that I do want to completely, so who cares if the remaining 20 challenges take me until I'm 50 to complete :-)
