1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Summer Nerd Games 2014 Swap on: Today at 03:20:52 PM
The Totoro felt bag and the TM patch and zipper bags are awesome!  I received today from LovelyMiss, and maybe I shouldn't have told her I was going to send extras (because she's awesome and amazing for doing all she does for the Nerd Games, and if anyone deserves spoiling, it's her!) because she totally outdid me!

First, the card.  Now, she doesn't know this, but back when I did a Stig Needlebook for the Movie/TV swap, I tried so hard to do s Stig silhouette and ended up having to go with a cartoon Stig.  She, on the other hand, nailed the classic Stig in her paper cut-out:



Then the supplies, which she said she intentionally went light on because I may have a slight hoarding problem (when two people inside a month have the same "whoaaaaaa" reaction to your craft room, you might have a problem...).  So, fluffy fluffy soooooooft yarn (I think I already know what I'm going to make with them!):

 

And an awesome bag of random bits and bobs, the which is so much fun!  I am positive I'll find tons of uses for them - I'm a huge sucker for "random bags" and whatnot:



And the crafts!  Oh, yes, craft*S*!  First up, a pretty pretty suncatcher, which I'm sorry I can't photograph in all its glory (well, actually only slightly sorry, because if it was sunny out today I think the heat would be complete unbearable instead of only mostly unbearable!):



And a handy Tardis-blue braided key lanyard!  That will be nice for carrying the key when walking the dog, since I don't always have pockets...



And a Pi hoop!  I admit to making a slight squeeing noise when I saw this, because my love for Pi knows no bounds, and it's just so cute!  I love the layers:



And there you'd think it was a pretty awesome package, yes?  I think anyone would be happy with it.  BUT THAT'S NOT ALL!  Behold, a mini-shrine of many many things I love, all eclectically jumbled together, exactly like the inside of my head:



I honestly could not tell you what my favorite part of it is, maybe the little square root of negative one clipboard... or the tiny little mushroom... or the books, oh my the adorableness of the little books!

I can't say thank you enough, it is awesome!  I hope you like your package half as much!  *chews on nails anxiously*

Hopefully I have a spot for this when it happens, I took a picture the other night of a cicada just after molting... 



Creepy, noisy things they are!
3  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Summer Nerd Games 2014 Swap (SIGN UP 7/18 - 7/23; SEND OUT 8/23) on: August 20, 2014 07:31:46 AM
Ooooh, I can't wait! But now I'm packing up my box and thinking... are my extras extra enough?  Swap anxiety before I've even sent!  Ah, well, it'll have to be good enough... I should be sending at lunch today, fingers crossed!

But maybe I could fit in something else before the deadline... we'll see...  Cheesy
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: Summer Nerd Games: June 1, 2014 - August 31, 2014 ~Join anytime!~ on: August 19, 2014 06:26:33 PM
Prompt:  June - Where's Waldo? 
Team: Textbook
Event: Foodology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Birthday Cake!
Brief Description: I was planning on making a cake with one of my 3-D molds (bunny, duck, peep...) for my friend's birthday, but when I went digging in my cake pan cabinet, I found this giant cookie cake pan and knew I had to use it.  I remember wanting it for a long time, and I think getting it as a present, but I only used it one, long, long ago.  And after using it, I remembered why... first off, you have to grease in alllllllll those little indentions (I used a - new - paint brush).  Then you have to clean alllllllll those little indentions (I used a toothbrush!).  The greasing and cleaning probably took the better part of an hour, let alone making the actual cake.  Still cute, though!

Prompt:  July - Wee bit
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: None
Project Name: Mini Shrine, in particular, the crocheted balloon...

Prompt:  August - Secret stash
Team: Textbook
Event: Yarnology
Bonus Points: Giver!
Project Name: Crocheted plane
Brief Description: My friend asked if I wanted to donate something to a silent auction for the Commemorative Air Force (they keep vintage airplanes flying, like the B-29 "Fifi"), and I found a pattern in Dutch on the internet, then added a propeller.  I later found someone had translated the pattern, but in the meantime I learned a lot of crochet-specific Dutch words...  and it was cool to find out I'd translated it (with a bit of help from Google, though not as much as you'd think!) correctly!

Also, all the yarn and stuffing was already in my craft room.  Cheesy

Prompt:  August Mob - Happy!
Team: Textbook
Event: Craftology
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Sugar Scrub
Brief Description: A good friend of mine (Cryssoleil) gave me some peppermint/coconut oil sugar scrub for Christmas last year, and in that time everyone who stays at my house has used it.  My aunts fell in LOVE with it and so I made a huge batch and parceled it out to everyone!  They were very happy, indeed!  I wonder if this means they won't visit any more, though... was it me, or the sugar scrub...?  O.o  (Pictured is an example of both the peppermint and orange/vanilla one I made)

I had hoped to get my project done yesterday, but going to bed at 6pm kinda messed with my productivity! And I'm having more company tonight, so I'll hopefully send slightly before the deadline later this week!

Hello partner! Sorry, it's been a rough weekend and I didn't have time (or energy) to do much, in a day or two I'll probably have some ideas and questions, until then, just "hi!" Smiley

I'm still here! Lots of family stuff had meant not a lot of crafting time, I've got a few things started that I'm working on here and there, and solid ideas for the rest!  Hopefully I'll get some time soon to have a mini-crafting marathon or two!
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Anatomical Swap on: August 17, 2014 07:23:33 PM
I would love that!  Too many good swap ideas, though... when could I fit it in?!

I didn't go with a mini essay, I limited myself to a sentence or two about my favorite bits and whatnot.  But I think it does help to know why people like things and what their favorite bits are!  Although there are some shows that I just love ALL OF IT so I suppose if I'd limited myself to those I wouldn't have had to go into detail, but what's the fun in that?  Wink

I'm glad my nearly unstoppable babble made you feel better!  Cheesy
