Hmmm, I will try really hard to make it to this one.  Finding an open spot might be tight since I'm helping to co-organize several ongoing swaps, but if sign-ups are in the latter half of August, I think I can swing it.

Check In Question:
What was your favorite childhood Halloween costume?

3rd grade, Alex Trebek (I wanted to be a game show host growing up).  We spray painted my hair silver, bought a real cheap gray suit at the thrift store, I had giant cue cards... one guy thought I was a Young Republican, though.

Dear Headmistress, in my mind I'm thinking we're allowed to post a Bertie Bott project until 11:59 PM Central time of the day the new bean is posted, but I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the post... so if I am mistaken and am just making this up, please let me know and I will re-do my header to submit it for a different prompt.  (I'm sorry -- I know you answer questions like this every time a deadline comes up!  I promise I will make a better effort to get stuff posted in a timely manner next time.  Embarrassed)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's - Blue Raspberry
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Captain Mickey altered puzzle piece
Brief Description: I am currently participating in Round 9 of the Altered Puzzle Piece Swap, and I did this piece for a Disney-themed puzzle.  Normally the color most associated with Mickey Mouse is black, but when he is costumed as Captain Mickey, the blue takes over.

My two newest international city pieces are courtesy of camezzo.  The Beijing piece features the name of the city written in Chinese script (which ends up being the same in Japanese, so I could actually read it!  Grin)

German is a complete mystery to me however, so thankfully camezzo included a translation in the accompanying card of the saying on the Berlin piece:

"Berlin is more a part of the world than a city."

Thanks for the wonderful pieces!

camezzo, I'm sorry for the awful flash in those pics, so feel free to post your own if you have better ones.

Oh, I LOVE Ninnis.  Do you have an idea for dates, Smmarrt?

Artmomto5, I was chuckling to myself when you posted whatthepuck's pieces back on Page 1, since she did both a Mickey and an UP piece as well.  Wink

These two pieces from Luvebuggy99 are for my domestic puzzle.  Seattle:

and my hometown of San Antonio:

Thank you dear!  Kiss

I received two great 3-D pieces from cmarion3 today!  Rome features homemade columns, which I'm guessing are made out of poly clay.  (Sorry for the sideways pic):

Barcelona is sporting the "Barcelona Cathedral" (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia):

She brilliantly turned the name into a looped 3-D element (so it both saves space and adds visual interest on the piece -- I am totally stealing that technique in the future  Wink):

Loving my pieces so far!

When Halloween falls on a weeknight, we usually don't pass out candy (since we may not be getting home from work until 8 pm or so).  And because one of my best friend's birthday is on Halloween, we often go out if it falls on a weekend.  But even when our porch light is off, we usually get at least three or four rings of the doorbell.  If we are home this year though, I'm thinking I may go ahead and buy candy.

Got some more crafting done on Saturday with friends -- one item is totally finished (not the one I anticipated completing first, incidentally).  Had a really cool idea for some supplies I found -- hoping it will turn out well.  Wink

Just checking in for the week.  Mailed out 4 sets on Wednesday, so six left to go.  Hoping to get at least three done in the coming week.

WOW, what an awesome package!  Mr. Drippy looks great in both his forms, and the felted Moogle is just wonderful!  I am uber-jealous.  Wink
