I was like everyone else ("What on earth can I do???") but after reading through all this I have an idea . . . or two . . . will definitely sign up.

ETA: Just did! My crafts are:

1. Knitting
2. Record album books
3. Simple quilting
4. Record bowls
5. Pins from old earrings (the last two are more like mini-craft kits I'd be happy to send along with one of the bigger ones)

OOh, if you do record album books, you could do a record bowl kit at the same time, with hardly any extra effort! 

I'm getting so excited about this whole thing!  I'm just crossing my fingers that SOMEone, SOMEwhere will want a tin purse kit, because my brain has been folding itself around that idea ever since I signed up.  Please, please PLEASE someone want that kit!!  Cheesy

(I know, it sounds so lame, but I've got some AWESOME hinged-lid vintage tins just aching to be purses...  This was my first example, but if I made a kit it would be SO much cooler than this!!  You can find it in the featured projects:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=76;action=display;threadid=3871 )

I was thinking, too, like someone else mentioned, that I wouldn't even mind getting a kit of something I already know how to do, just to get someone else's creativity infused into my project.  You know, just because I know how to embroider doesn't mean I'd think to embroider a certain design in certain colors on a certain item, and that would be my loss, but lucky for me, some other craftster probably would think to do all that.  I'm just so looking forward to this!

I joined too!  Grin I put I can make sewing kits (a-line skirts, bags, cozies, pillowcase covers...), altoid tin kits, marble magnets, chandelier earring kits and wrist cuffs (they will be more intricate ones unless you prefer simple). I want to learn felting (needle or wet), embroidery, knitting, book binding.

THis is so fun, I can't wait to get partners.

You have to wait until she receives. You have until the 30th so it should be plenty of time.

Okay.  I caved. Here's my list.
     
     1. Learn to Knit
     2. Learn to Knit, higher levels- cables, in the round etc.
     3. Learn basic html and how to design web pages (does this count as a craft? well, I think it's crafty...)
     4. Basic sewing- Jordy bags and messanger bags, hold the gussets etc.
     5.  Learn to crochet
     6.  Stenciling 

I'd love to learn...
     1. needle felting
     2. Embroidery
     3. Book binding
     4. Jewelry making

anyone out there that's thinking about doing a kit on making homespun yarn?  That something I've been wanting to learn forever.  I still haven't sent in my signups, because even though I've thought up a bunch of craft kits I could make, I still have no idea what I want to learn to make... I feel like I'm at a stage where I know a little bit about a lot of things,  Cheesy.  I desperately need a new and inspiring craft...
