I am loving just going into the craft room to find supplies and not having to go to the craft store and spend money.  Plus, cleaning the craft room has unearthed many items I forgot I had Smiley  This is the year of destashing and it's going so well so far.  No dent made AT ALL but it's still fun and good to work from the stash.

WOW!  SO many awesome projects being completed!  Great job everyone!  Those button cookies are adorable! 

My camera and computer finally cooperated so now I can post some projects of my own!


Battle/Challenge:  April Battle Regular Books
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Discworld stuffie
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This was for the Completely Nonsense Swap.  My partner listed Terry Pratchet as one of her favorites and had something like this (but in crochet) on her pinterest so since I cannot crochet or knit, I sewed it up with felt.  It is the Discworld itself.  The world is flat with a waterfall cascading over the edge, it sits on the backs of 4 elephants who are standing on an enormous sea turtle.  This was so interesting to make and learn about, I just might have to start the series Wink

Battle/Challenge:  April Flash Mob
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Betty Botter cutting board
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This was also for the Completely Nonsense swap.  It is a poem by Mother Goose called Betty Botter.  I had never heard it before, found it and loved it.  Thought it was pretty humorous and decided the cutting board would be a great place for a poem about butter and batter Smiley

Battle/Challenge:  April UFO
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points: 10 for black
Project Name: Penguin TM patch
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This was for a swap partner.  She was unable to get into the TM swap so I decided to incorporate one into our swap package.  I had the fabric forever and thought it was perfect for our love of penguins and pirates Wink
Project Picture:

Battle/Challenge:  April Now we're cooking
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Cuban sandwich
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I have been craving one of these ever since I saw it on Dexter ages ago!!!  I found a recipe on pinterest and viola! we have deliciousness! I had to make Cuban roasted pork for it as well and the store only had 6 lbs of it instead of the one lb that it called for so we had pork for 3 nights after this LOL.  I think my family is sick of the variations of pork.
