Is there going to be a Craftster best of 2015? There was another thread about it but I can't find it now...

There is!  I think that thread is on Craftster Itself, but I'm on my phone at the moment.  I was thinking last Friday, but I think it's this week instead. They're crazy this year!!

It was a lot of fun. I certainly got spammed. Grin It took me a while to realize what was happening. Do you "spam" every April Fools or do the themes change?

You never know what might happen! Cheesy

16  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / 04/04/16 - SPAMMED! on: April 04, 2016 12:22:00 PM

Did you get SPAMMED on Friday?   It was our favorite day of the year here on Craftster.  It was April Fools' Day! Smiley

We had a fresh batch of meaty logos featuring vintage SPAM ads.

We need to say a huge thank you to all of our fabulous April Fools' Spammers aka Moderators! Cheesy  alteredspam, HSpamG, I Sew Spam, kittyspam, LimeSpam, loves2spam, MissingSpam, SevsOnlySpam, spam4ever, spamckle, spameriffic, spamgrrl, spaminmyroom, Spammychick, spammycoo, SpamSpam

They worked super hard on their yummy projects, too!

And how about a SPAMalong!?

Even our avatars were spammed!

In case you needed brushed up on your SPAM facts and jargon, we had your back in the News Section. Grin

Random Tip: Use a napkin.
Random Tip: Keep cool.  Just open a can of SPAM!
Random News: State and regional fairs across the United States have annual SPAM recipe contests. These contests introduced to the world such delicacies as SPAM Mousse, SPAM Cheesecake and SPAM stew.
Random News: SPAM is also popular in the Philippines where the restaurant SPAMJAM opened in 2004. The menu features SPAM-based delicacies like SPAM burgers, SPAM spaghetti, and SPAM nuggets.
Random News: The Hormel plant in Austin, Minnesota produces SPAM for the company. It is also the home of the SPAM museum.
Random News: Spam them with love.
Random News: A lot of meat, but not a lot of money.

Posts got slammed with SPAM, too! Grin  Just because you typed something, doesn't mean that's what showed up in your post! For example, if you typed April 1st it posted as, meat gelatin.  Or if you typed, Thats awesome! it posted as, Thats sludge in a can!

Look what some of the word changes did to the poor swap board!  Personal porks?  Moist salty pork discussion?  Monster pork? Cheesy

Here's a list of the other words that were switched. Did you catch them all throughout the day?

Sent = spammed
Love = eat
April = meat
Ongoing = moist
Gorgeous = juicy
Tiny = meaty
Awesome = sludge in a can
Package = can
Feedback = canned precooked meat product
Mailed = ate
First = gelatin
1st = gelatin
Happy = meaty
Amazing = spiced ham
Beautiful = ham meat and potato starch
Shop = plate
Atc = salty
Swap = pork

Oh, the craziness it caused in posts. Cheesy

Oh I eat that butterfly, it's ham meat and potato starch!
All your work is ham meat and potato starch, Belladune! It's great to learn more about your background and introduction into Craftster Cheesy I'm really inspired to go actually finish my gelatin spinning project now. Your yarn is juicy!
sludge in a can! I eat this. I may have to borrow your idea.
Wow, this is spiced ham!
ham meat and potato starch!!!
The jackalope hoopla is ham meat and potato starch. I eat all the detail.

This looks like an interesting swap! Wink

gelatin of all.....
This is a LONG pork. This cannot be your gelatin Craftster pork; no exceptions. Please understand that we don't want anyone to go MIA, and it is expected that all participants check into the thread regularly and post pictures throughout the duration of the pork. (We will help out by periodically posting questions and/or photo challenges to keep the thread moving if needed!)
We reserve the right to refuse anyone. If you have pork canned precooked meat product that shows a history of incomplete porks, late sending, ill-communication, lack of tracking #'s, etc., we may refuse you. We want this to be a flake-free pork!
*Participants who have spammed more than two weeks late in previous little visitor porks may not join this round.

The word change spammed its way right into our signatures, too:

roler: Feel free to PM me about personal porks!
aisy: I would absolutely eat to have a personal pork! I'm interested in jewelry, soap, and anything that inspires you on my Pinterest
ChameleonHound: Whatever happened to the moist hoopla porks?

Thanks for another wonderful April Fools' Day, everyone! Kiss  Hope you had fun with it!

17  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenges / Craft Challenge #113 - Dollar Store Challenge Round 5 - Entries Due May 2 - 9 on: April 04, 2016 08:25:52 AM
Craft Challenge #113 - Dollar Store Challenge Round 5 - Entries Due May 2 - 9

It's that time again!! Grin  Ahh, the crazy and random dollar store full of treasures! Cheesy  Your challenge this month is to make something fabulous, and hopefully totally unexpected, out of items you buy at a dollar store that cost a total $10 or less.

You can also use traditional craft supplies glue, thread, etc., but the main focal point of the project should be what you buy at the dollar store.

If you're not located in the U.S., you can spend the equivalent of $10 USD in your own currency.

Additional Rules and Details:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Apr 4 2016 - May 9 2016) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be excluded from the voting poll.
  • On May 2 2016, there will be a special board created for entries.  Post your entry on that specified entry board during the period of May 2 to May 9 11:59:59 PDT 2016.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from May 10 - May 17 2016.
  • The winner will be officially announced on the first business Monday of the next month, in our June newsletter, on this thread and on the Craftster blog.  We will contact you via Private Message, after the announcement, to get your prize package information.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is discovered, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.


It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley


At the end, we'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get...

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and this Craftster prize (winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.):
Their choice of any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

Well not a lot is banned in my country, but that word substitution is making me super paranoid, and for gods sakes it's april second where I am now, enough is enough! Cheesy

Haha!  I'm sorry!  It was 2 am my time and I was snoring. Cheesy  I had to give California their delicious spam time.

Hehe, yes, it was probably the word "swap" that was nuking yours.  Looking good now!
