Join a community commitment to make a thing a day for the month of February. "knit cook draw paint sodier (sic) write install destroy invent document" are presented as ideas to demonstrate that anything goes. Last year's contributions are currently down, but did run the gamut of media and topics.

I am confused by that website. Do you have to make a new thing everyday, or can you work on the same thing each day for the entire month? Because I don't think I'm going to be able to knit much in the less-than-an-hour that they tell you to spend on your daily thing.

craichead, I get the impression that this site is a lot like NaNoWriMo- a way for creative but sluggish people to get motivated into a flurry of activity (which will hopefully carry over after February). It sounds like you don't need that extra push. Personally, I'm going to do this, because I always find myself looking at my piles of art and craft supplies and saying "well... I have a LOT of reading to do." And then I go and post on Metafilter instead of doing my reading.

Heh, this reminds me of Project 101, which was great fun and a great motivator, even if I didn't make all 101 goals.

I'm going to do this, but the page looks a bit thrown together. I mean, sodler? Come on!

"creative but sluggish" - that is the best description of me I've run across.

I'm also not a fan of a design, but I posted the link because I had seen last year's turnout, which was impressive for a first year event. Maybe they need someone with web design skills to redesign it during the month of February. :)
