1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: OMG - I need a drink swap... anyone interested in Happy Hour? on: March 01, 2015 02:13:33 PM
It is down to practice, I'm pretty sure.  There are alcoholics in my life (sad, but just a fact) and it's amazing how much they can put away and still seem "normal".  The Try Guys at Buzzfeed did a Sobriety Test video (very NSFW language in it, but is intersting to watch - but you can fall down the rabbithole of Buzzfeed videos... oooh, you should watch the 2-part Americans try International Liqueurs, too!) and it shows how one of the guys who drinks (parties) most often tests just as high but acts completely sober.

Weirdly, wine will make me feel far more tipsy than hard liqueur, but I think that's probably down to a issue of the size of a "drink".  I'm guessing I tend to put a small shot of hard liqueur in my drinks, and rather over-pour that glass of wine.  Hmmm, I should test that theory... Cheesy

Very interesting page, Ludi!  It's so nice that people keep history alive... hmmm, I wonder which side of the battle you'll choose?  Wink

I've been horribly absent this season, but I can do Team Textbook again.

Thanks for volunteering, Smeddley! And, Team Textbook definitely took a hit this round, didn't it? Smiley I don't know what happened to January, and the past two weeks didn't work like I had planned. My list of projects was not overly challenging, but I just couldn't get things done when I wanted to! But, at least I have plenty of projects to choose from for the next round Smiley 

Eh, we did just fine - we don't have the huge numbers others do, but there are only two of us!  I definitely have a bunch of stuff I can finish and hopefully shoehorn into the prompts next round!

Okay, I got back from the show and it's my last-ditch attempt at some finishes!  I was working on some of this today... and some of the explanations might be... creative...

Prompt:  December - Egypt
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO (started over a year ago...)
Project Name: Zill Dragon!
Brief Description:  Bellydancing tends to come in three varieties - Egyptian, Turkish, and American.  This little zill dragon is, of course, a fan of the Egyptian style...

Project Picture:


Prompt:  January - Freezing Point
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Sling to match a costume
Brief Description:  One of our troupe members has hurt her shoulder, so the number of moves she can do with that arm is ZERO.  To keep her from hurting it further on accident when we performed, we made her a sling.  I made the base as shown here, patterned off a sling used after rotator cuff surgery.  Another troupe member glued a LOT of bling to it so it was awesome come showtime.  Now at least I know if I ever have to have an arm immobilized, I'll be able to do it in style!

Project Picture:



Prompt:  January - Cold as Ice
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO (started over a year ago...)
Project Name: Blue Zill Dragon

Project Picture:


Prompt:  February - Basket Case
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Little Red and Wolf

Project Picture:

Prompt:  Red Alert - Love is in the Air
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: UFO (started in October of last year...)
Project Name: Pink Zill Dragon
Brief Description: It's pink!  That's one of the colors of loooooove.  Plus, I finally figured out a way to make these with sewing in the zippers that I don't hate, so... I do love my pattern, now!

Willow is frantically trying to get everything gathered up, not to mention I need to get that scrapbook done... but it's supposed to be all snowy tonight so it's a perfect excuse to finish that up tomorrow!

Ahhh, this is tempting, but past galleries are just too intimidating. I'm more of a bunch of little things kind of swapper, I think...

Ugh, I have been... not really busy, I don't know, just absent.  So, now, for a project dump (sorry...)

I looked on my list and I don't think I posted the Goal Book I made for my friend:



We went to Vino Van Gogh and I painted a large version...



And my LV, Willow, painted a tiny version...



Then on to swap things...

A hood for the Nerd Games Swap


A box for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A peg gnome for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A paper mache framed butterfly for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A fairy door for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


A knitted bat for the Cabinet of Curiosities swap:


That's all for now... hopefully I'll have another bunch to post soon!
