I've been watching Julie & Julia again and have been inspired to do something great. Last time I did this I spent two months pumping out baby hats for charity like a crazy person. That was loads of fun, but since I was only posting about it on my FaceBook I became a little lax about taking pictures. aka, I stopped taking any after the first month.
Like in the movie, I want to create a blog about my new adventure. This might encourage me to take pictures and it will let people who aren't my friend on FB to see and possibly comment. I want to try a year of charity crafting. In the beginning I will mostly just be knitting and crocheting items and donating them. I'm thinking that if I become popular, I could try and create something pretty (a necklace or pair of earrings) and put it up for auction and donate the money from it.
While I have this awesome plan figured out, I ran into a snag. I have no idea what to call my little project\blog. I want something cute\witty so people will remember it.

When in doubt, use more glue!

I can't help with a blog title but wanted to say I think this is a great idea.  Please post the link when you're up and running, I'd love to follow your progress.

Maybe the Blog name could relate to the charity you'll be supporting?
Example...  you make items to auction for school supplies for poor inner city kids... Knits and School Kits. Or for Cancer research... A Stitch In Time (Saves Lives). A woman's charity? Knit One, Girls Too. Dog rescue? Afghans and Hounds.
I admit to knowing little about crocheting or knitting, so I'm trying LOL.
I really like the idea of tying a blog to a charitable auction. Good luck with the name.

afghans and hounds made me smile Cheesy yes i agree, i think this is a brill idea, and i hope you do it. think aswell, you could possibly end up with a massive following wanting to see what you do in the whole year, especially coz i would have thought with the sheer and utter amount of charity and crafting pages etc on there, ....  and good luck Smiley think its brill, and yes, post a link when you do it Smiley coz already on here you got 2 or 3 interested Smiley

I really like some of these!  I was thinking of going with "Creative for Charity"(it is nice and vague so I can change what I make when I feel the urge) and then I could do things like "Baby Hat edition!"
If I use any of your names I will link back to your craftster page ^.^

Also as a general update: I will be putting the link to my blog on my sig.
