The goal is dead. Long live the goal!

Hello everyone,

I'd like to announce the goal for 2008. For 2008, I'd like for this group to make 4,000 items. As of today, just under 4,000 US soldiers have died in Iraq. I think it makes sense to continue to spread good in the name of those who have fallen, no matter how you feel about the war.

I also have the following ideas/questions.

1) Because our dear doclegs is getting eaten by her life, she will not be able to spearhead the continuing bag o'sunshine project in 08. Is there any one who would like to take this over?

2) I had 2 volunteers say they wanted to be in charge of some stuff for 2008. Craftyone, you volunteered for group growth, and newdaydawning, you volunteered for either contests or collecting non-crafted material. If you definitely want to do this, please respond by 12/15/07!

3) I thought of a new project called Christmas in July. There is a local women's shelter that is very near and dear to my heart. In my own county, homelessness has increased by 450%, so the shelters are all having a terrible time providing for their tennants. Since most people donate things at this time of year, the Summer can be tough for the homeless and the shelters that help them. So what if we tried to target one or two shelters and really inundate them with stuff they'd receive on July 25?

Thoughts, ideas, questions, complaints, comments, etc...more than welcome!

Thanks, everybody :)
