I am so in!  I wanted to join last year, but it was way too late in the year to get anywhere near 50 projects.  My list isn't really started yet, but here are a few that I've bought materials for/planned out (I've also gotten a lot of inspiration from other people's lists, but I have a lot of catching up to do!):

1. Eye spy bag for O 1/9/10
2. Button wreath
3. One page (at least) in my altered book journal each week (0/52) Better get on it for this week!
4. Knitting needle roll
5. Taggy book
6. Felt food for O (5 pcs)
7. Paint picnic table
8. Felted bowls/boxes
9. Le Sac dress
10. Necklace for Sister
11. Embroidered napkin set
12. Leg warmer socks
13. Finish ABC altered puzzle
14. Learn to carve my own stamps (since I bought a kit months ago)
15. Organize, organize, organize (got the tree down finally, and dragged out some extra shelving for me.  Now to tackle the giant pile of stuff where my desk should be!)
16. Learn to crochet, make an amigurumi
17. Coffee cozy/sleeve of some sort
18. Felt mail kit for O
19. Roman shades using this tutorial
20. Vegetable garden (and keep it alive this year!)
21. Case for camera
22. Make a fancy header for my blog
23. Felt board for O
24. Growth chart
25. Advent calendar (at least mostly reusable)
26. Try at least one new recipe each week

I think 13 is a pretty good start to keep me busy.  I'll definitely be adding to my list as I go.  I hope this list will motivate me to actually finish projects, as I'm very good at starting things, but get burnt out and they sit and sit and sit and never get done.

I think baby and child crafts are really really adorable, but I don't know anyone with a baby either. I can't make baby items, because my mother will then interrogate me about being pregnant. Sad Which I am not.
I also think that I will make some more hearthstone decorations. Because I love them. Smiley Then I'm going to make myself at least one pincushion other than a hearthstone, so I can keep them strictly as decorations. Putting pins in them makes them look... not good.
Right now though, I am concentrating on my swap items still... AND trying to stay up for 6 more hours so I can be awake to get my little brothers on the bus. T.T Joy...

The pin cushion that I made looks like a doughnut. I am really happy with the way it turned out and will post pictures soon. I think it is fun to make pin cushions where the pins end up being part of the whole. Like sprinkles on my doughnut Smiley

Smiley I've crocheted donuts before. I wonder if I should do that again. I was working on a doubled donut. (Twice as big as the regular ones.) I messed up when I was finished, and as I was ripping it out, the yarn ripped. I think I'll try to remake it this year.... and actually finish it.

Last night I had a dream - I found my nice bamboo handled J hook and all was happy in crochet blanket land - however I think the odds of finding that hook today are slim to nothing unless I find the time to go through all the boxes in the craft room to finish cleaning it up - which won't happen until after my deadlines are met... so I'm stuck with the Boyle or Bates or whatever hook it was that I pulled that doesn't have that sharp point at the end....

But it was a wonderful dream.

About Wanna Iguana biting me - the funniest part was the look on his face.  He looked up at me like what the heck woman?? That's not a strawberry!! What are you trying to do to me.  Needless to say I did not wear that shade of red again!

I am collecting quilts, afghans & blankets for those that lost their homes.  Pm me!
