Heh, I can relate! I'm not a Gemini (Taurus/Aries here!) but definitely have the craft cave. The rest of the house is pretty neat most of the time...except for that nook!

I am so glad to see other people who find crafting healing and relaxing. It's what is going to keep me sane when school starts, I know it. Smiley

I don't feel zen when crafting (so wish I did - I'm jealous!!) but it is extremely healing for me emotionally and mentally.  With my chronic illnesses, I am pretty effectively disabled.  I'm able to work as a freelance writer (thank God!) from home and I love what I do since I work with non-profits to write grants to raise money.  But it's tough emotionally and mentally to be alone so much, have no social life, and have a lot of insomnia.  My husband's awesome but he has Asperger's and has to spend a lot of downtime when he's home to process his work day.

Point being that for me, crafting is soul food.  Especially swapping - I feel like I can do something for someone else, something that will make them happy (hopefully!), so when I feel useless and worthless, it's just amazingly helpful to have something to work towards and have a purpose or even just go through the process to make it through to a less painful day!  Smiley

Do you need someone to keep track of submitted projects? like in a Google worksheet or something?
I know I'm not very active, but I read the games threads almost daily and I'm pretty good at keeping lists Smiley

*hand shoots up* I volunteer! I'm on here every day and pinterest at least twice as often. It's one way I gear up for and wind down after work. Craftalong pinning is right up my alley.

haha Calabaza volunteered fast (or it looked fast to me!) I'm on Pinterest all the time too... bad habit.

I'm so excited you're doing this again and it's going to keep happening!!

I have just decided on a research project. Now to figure out my team.... November is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and I'm participating and also organizing a craft swap for it. So "Wordy" would make sense. But Season 8 of Supernatural comes out soon... AAAAAAAAND I just bought the collectors edition of Star Trek Next Generation at a yard sale (6 boxes full of VHS tapes... $20). I will be doing lots of watching in the near future so Multimedia is tempting too.

Sigh. I've got 1 more day to decide Cheesy
