and I thought that it would be nice to have some that we do auctions for and some that we just donate the actual crafts

Do we want to do monthly or quarterly? I'm not a very efficent crafter so I'm not going to do a project monthly... if it's going to be a one-a-month thing then for me it would be helpful to have say three or four months mapped out at a time so I can get stuff finished in the month that everyone else is focusing on it.

On the other hand if its for auctions, small things like bookmarks, headbands, nappies, are quite acheivable makes.

I don't think I'm up for doing projects big enough to be donate to charities themselves each month (eg: incubator set, puppy coat, premmie clothes)

I like the idea of a monthly focus as well, gives a deadline and a goal to work for.

I would like to do something for the aussie flood vics too, someone is collecting small handheld size dolls/ plushies which would be pretty quick and easy,but really appreciated, will try and find out who and where...

I think if we set out as many as we can for 2011 - then everyone can work towards there own personal time frames and goals and and choose what charities they want to work towards.

Maybe do Every 3rd or 4th month as a General that we make and Auction our crafts and the funds collected go to a chariety will all choose - ie floods, quakes etc.

As for charities I am all for:
SANDS
Mintys Hospice
Flood relief
