Prompt: Team Spirit - Multimedia
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Ribbon and button books
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for the Sweat Shop Swap, this book (the one on the left in the picture) has a green ribbon and button closure - plus several of the signatures are green pages!

Prompt: June - Clowns
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Ribbon and button books
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for the Sweat Shop Swap, this book (the one in the middle... well, both of the others, but that's the one I took pictures of!) has different patterned paper on the inside and outside of the covers
Project Picture:



Prompt: Team Spirit - Randomizer
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Mini Books
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: These books have a different stitching/cover arrangement - the cover is one piece, folded at the spine, and the signature pages are stitched through the spine of the book.  I like that it's very sturdy, and doesn't twist like the coptic stitch, but it doesn't open flat and you just have to cut the covering paper at the top and bottom of the spine.  Oh, and the pages are orange!

Prompt: Zap #2
Team: Textbook
Event: Foodology
Bonus Points: Engineering (Recipe Included!)
Project Name: Ice Cream Bread
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Ice Cream and Flour.  Yup, it makes bread.
2 Cups Ice Cream, any flavor
1 1/2 Cups SELF-RISING flour
Mix, and bake in a loaf pan at 305*F for 40-45 minutes  That's it!

(If you don't have self-rising flour, I never do, all you do is add 3/4 tsp salt and 2 tsp baking powder to your regular flour for this recipe)

Prompt: Zap #3
Team: Textbook
Event: Foodology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Strawberry and Cream Cookies
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I like to bake.  A lot (one of my goals was 1,500 cookies this year, I'm well past it already).  And I take requests on D&D nights, and while one guy likes to challenge me (I learned him when I did actually make dill pickle cookies!) some others make reasonable requests.  This was one that everyone but me seemed to love.  I think they're too sweet, but I'm also not a huge fan of white chocolate chips.  Please don't mind my Little Visitor, Anana, in the corner of the picture!

The recipe is here: http://lilluna.com/strawberries-n-cream-pudding-cookies/

Prompt: July - Star Stuff
Team: Textbook
Event: Fabricology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Stars needlebook
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I can never have enough needlebooks, and I've had this star fabric forever.  This time I cut the felt pages short and added a snap closure (admittedly because I forgot the tab I was going to sew in for a closure, but hey!  I have more cut out so I'll use it then...)
Project Picture:





Prompt: July - Dark Matter
Team: Textbook
Event: Fabricology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Needlemiders
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: I so struggled with this prompt, until I realized I had something pinned I really really really wanted to make for myself that worked perfectly!  Just a little felt stuffy, right?



No!  Hidden inside is a magnet!



Put another magnet on the back and it will hold itself in the corner of your hoop and hold onto your needle.  Genius!

Prompt: Big Time Project #1
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Starry Night Painting
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: My friend and I decided to host our own "Vino Van Gogh" night (we've been to a few of those painting classes, but figured we could do it ourselves and have access to more paint and cheaper drinks!).  Plus we spent a LOT more time (the classes run about 2 hours, I got there late afternoon and left in the wee hours of the morning!).  I'm waffling on adding something to the painting (a small Tardis and a doctor with a long scarf!) but I'm not sure I can pull it off and I do like the painting as it is.  There's no sense of scale, but it's a fairly large canvas - 16" x 20"

I have a few more things to finish up and get pictures of this weekend... hopefully I'll get most of the prompts done, but we'll see!

I have been so absent, and missed the deadline for raffle prizes.  Nertz.  Next time!  I've been really busy/obsessed with a craft swap project.  I should have made it a research project!  I have some other things to post, probably this weekend... time is just flying!

Argh. I picked up a WIP tonight that I haven't touched in at least 2 years for the UFO prompt. I can't remember what hook size I was using. So far I've worked 4 rows and just can't tell. I marked where I started from, so at least I can frog back if I need to.

Storeboughtcreations, you need to make yourself these! 

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=350863.0#axzz2pLygBpZE

Completely easy, just a lobster claw jewelry catch, alphabet (and other, if you want) beads, and bonus, it hooks through the look to keep your projects from unraveling!  Just run some strong thread through the beads and hook and you're done!
4  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Rnd 7 (S/U CLOSED; S/O Sept. 17 or 21) on: August 27, 2015 06:13:49 PM
We may have a problem with my big project.  Turns out, I decided to use a ____ I had bought for another project, thinking it would be easy to get more.  Unfortunately, it seems that said ______ is no longer stocked at the store I bought it, or either of the other two stores I visited.  So now I have to either ______ or _______ and hope I have enough.  The question is, do I press on and possibly waste many many hours, or...?  Argh!

Looking forward to this weekend, I need to clean off my ____ and _____ so I can work on the ____ and _____, and maybe do some _____.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: Sweat Shoppe Swap Round 36 (signup by 8/30, send by 9/21) on: August 27, 2015 06:00:15 PM
I have three books done! They measure 4" square and have about 112 pages. They are made from reclaimed paper, cut off pieces or paper that was run through a copier, so a few light black smudges here and there, but nothing you couldn't write/draw over.



Copic stitch binding, button and ribbon tie closure, yellow, salmon, green and pink signatures.



Phew, those took longer than I thought!

An extra week is super-helpful, I meant to make something last week but ended up with too many commitments and this weekend filled up!  I'm thinking about going with mini books, kind of in this style:

Halloween decorations are out!  I picked up three items the other day (plus more supplies for my big project) and should be fairly well set if things go to plan and my hand holds up... 80/240ths done - that's a third!  Whoooo-hoooo! Sadly, I fell behind on my daily count this week, will really need that time off to finish in time, I think.

...man, I hope smashu likes this!  I'm slightly on the fence about it, but it could be my brain trying to make me give up...

Not making as much progress as I'd like, I'm 50/240ths done with my mega project, and it's just... slow. At this pace it won't be done in time. A huge problem is not being able to bring it places, otherwise I could work on it at lunch and while we play D&D. Still hopeful, but... might need a back-up plan for the actual swap and just send it when it's done.
9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: Writing boards on: August 16, 2015 02:11:34 PM
And a NaNoWriMo along!  Cheesy  I looooooove writing and used to do it all the time, but it's slipped to third place in my hobbies behind crafting and reading.  I still try to do a haiku or limerick a day, and the occasional drabble, but haven't written a story in... gosh, since the last time I did NaNo a few years ago!

I've also been looking for a new writing bingo community since the one that really inspired me to stretch my writing comfort zone seems to be on permanent hiatus.  Sad
10  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Movie/TV Show Swap Round 3? on: August 13, 2015 05:29:28 PM
I would be allllllll over this if sign-ups end in the mid part of September (or later) because I'm swamped with the Halloween swap right now.

I *just* put away the glasses I got from Calixita in the last round - love those things, they get SO much use!
