phizzychick, I was remiss in not saying how great that ring holder is!

crazyda79, great zombie projects all, but that zombie pillowcase is RAAR grr ugggh!

suereal, oh no!  I'd say run, but I fear it might be too late...  uh, shamble over in that direction, okay?  Wink

So I looked back at my old projects (yay for the yearly craftalongs hosted by someone RAAR grr ugggh that keeps it all handy) and I have done some zombie things!  Not nearly enough, though.  My zombie craft projected percentage is woefully low, especially considering my eat of zombie movies!

Plants vs Zombies hoop for a unicorn zombie apocalypse:



Bellydance costume bag for said Zombie Me costume, with a designed and hand-cut stencil!



Aforementioned original zombie fairy artwork:

Oh, actually, yes, I do! I downloaded the pictures from the Zombie Walk facebook page... they went a little overboard with the blood, you had a choice of a little or a lot, apparently the "lot" this Zombie Walk meant "we're going to try to drown the zombies before they can devour anything on the walk" (can you drown a zombie? I wouldn't think so...)  To this day my key fob (which was tied to my costume) is a bit sticky...



That was my zombie bellydance costume, as well, but the blood made it a little pink, so it won't match my partner's costume anymore... we'll have to make new zombie costumes if we revive the Zombie Me dance (oh, darn, more costume making?! Wink )

Your zombies go up to 11!

I eat zombie crafts, and zombie bellydance!  I've done a zombie duet dance to the song Zombie Me, and was a zombie bellydancer in the last Zombie Walk.  I also drew a zombie fairy eons ago... and there's a zombie cross stitch pile of flesh I adore but would never be able to get done today, so I went back to zombie sketches for my zombie craft... I may someday paint them, or not... I like the rough pencil sketch look, too! (That's at least 10 zombies!)

Does it have to be from an "official" compost pile? I don't keep one, but there's a corner of my yard where miscellaneous leaves and debris pile up and decompose that has some very promising colors developing.  I'm thinking with a decent binder it would make a very pretty abstract sculpture!

Another question, though, could we also use a few bits of non-compostable recycling? Like if you wanted a small fountain, could you repurpose some tin cans? I know the bulk of it should be compost, but I'm not sure about getting it watertight...

Artsycandice, I'm not sure about cabbage leaves, but I think celery strings could be put to good use for something that would get as much wear as a wallet!

Quick simul-post with my last minute March Nerd Games submissions:

Passport for Wish Bear
My Aunt is staking a trip to Fiji and while I would have loved t send my Little Visitor, I really don't feel right letting him out of my sight, especially not on a trip that far!  The solution was to get an LV just for her - and I made him a passport so he'd be legal going in and out of the country.  My Aunt joked that now in addition to being an international arms dealer (long story, also involves Fiji, the bunker, and a bow), I'm now a forger.  I said that's why he doesn't have a US Passport, but rather a Kingdom of Caring passport... can you "forge" something that doesn't exist?



Pet Rocks (the Nerd Game Prompt was for a craft from the decade you were born)
Why did I have to be born in the 70s?!  The decade that gave us such wonders and macrame ponchos and the couch dress... Anyway, the least "eh" thing I could come up with in a hurry - and that I might actually want - was pet rocks.  I thought I could whip out a dozen to leave around in an hour, instead, the five I did took over two hours!  Why is nothing fast?!  I put several coats of paint on each, painted the mouths, glued on the eyes, and then crocheted little "wigs" from bits of leftover scrap yarn in my waste yarn fishbowl, which I also glued on.  Four were left out in the wild (of the shopping area) today, my LV Anana took a liking to the fifth and will be keeping it.  And now I've found an adorable monster pet rocks picture and want to make more for abandoned art bits...



Pi day buttons and Pies
This year was a super pi day, and I celebrated with some Pi buttons I made as well as four types of Pie.

Anana adopted one of the pet rocks we made for the Nerd Games and were going to leave around in our walk today... I think this one will be staying with us!

I have no idea where March went!  I have things to post, but I want to see if I can get some better pictures of at least the Mob project tomorrow.  I thought I'd do a quick little funny thing, and when you see it you'll think "how did that take any time at all?!" but it was waaaaaay longer than expected.  I thought I'd do ten or twelve, ended up doing five and it took almost two hours!  For stupid little... you'll see.  Cheesy

I think I have one or two others done for March, just need to download the pictures.  And I'm working on my Tech project, but it'll take a bit longer...
