Sure. It's not really my place to judge what is a "real" crafty project and what isn't. It's really up to you guys, but I would consider cooking a craft too!  Wink Please! Share your experiences!  Smiley

Nope. Don't have to post your whole list to get in. You don't HAVE to get 50. This is just a way to challenge yourself. It's like, try to broaden your horizons in what you want to craft, by trying to think of 50 crafts to meet the goal, and then challenge yourself again to see how productive you can be.
And I would say, yes, post your lists!! What I plan on doing if anyone is interested in the idea, is putting my simplified list (free of all the chatter) from my original post in a wordpad document, and cross things off as I go. In case of computer issues or just being lazy to look, I'm also putting my list on paper. I saw in the previous round, that one person made her finished projects in tiny print and what she still had to do in large print. And people often bookmarked previous posts with pics, and added them to the most recent. That's why I personally would follow the rule of every week or two weeks or so. (Approximately of course.) Instead of every single project. Smiley Makes it easier for you to hyperlink back to.

Oh yeah. Adding one more thing to my list. Going to make anywhere from 1 to 5 crocheted cotton thread hats for myself. Smiley  I'm not officially starting till the first of January, but happy crafting everyone!

I have a couple of questions......
is it okay to put projects you've done for swaps on the list? and how big does a project need to be to be considered a project? for example, could a 2 page scrapbook layout be considered a project or should it be something bigger like 6 pages?
