Oh my gosh, Ezri_B!  I am so glad you and your family are safe, and that you didn't lose your whole house!  How scary.  I hope you're all doing okay.

I hope you feel much better quickly, LovelyMiss!

And just to confirm - this is still the discussion thread for the fall battles too, right? Or is there a new one for the new season?

Yep, it's the same discussion thread!

Thanks for the well wishes, everyone!  Grin

Watch for the Summer Nerd Games Award Ceremony in the coming weeks!

Please take notice of a few things for the Fall season:

Special thanks to bunny1kenobi for suggesting the theme for September, and providing some of the prompts!

--Boutnies are a new way to earn extra points and badges this season.  See the Bounty Bulletin for more information, and for available Bounty opportunities.

--Medaling and Team Spirit Prompts will return next Summer.  UFO Bonus Points are remaining for Fall.

--Even if you are a seasoned player, it might be useful to visit the Fall Nerd Battles Information Center for handy links and answers to frequently asked questions.

I almost forgot to post my last few prompts because my camera died the other day when I was taking photos, and I have been so sick I haven't even thought to charge it, or apparently bother posting these projects.  Anyway, sorry for the terrible camera phone photos.  Our house isn't set up with nice lighting yet.  

Prompt:  June - Onomatopoeia
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Yarnology
Bonus Points:  N/A
Project Name:  Photo frame
Brief Description:  I had a cheapy dollar wood frame and painted it black, then Mod Podged pretty cut out paper, and covered with glitter to 1) hide imperfections, and 2) glittery.  And a cute little sparkly yarn hanger.  The onomatopoeia I chose is snap, because that's the sound the camera makes when you take a picture.  Again, sorry for the embarassingly bad photos.

Project Picture:


______________________________

Prompt:  July - Photogenic
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Fabricology
Bonus Points:  N/A
Project Name:  Christmas clips
Brief Description:  I cleaned out my Christmas stash and found some cute buttons.  I made them not buttons by removing the pin, and attached them instead to some hair clips for some cute Christmas fashion.  I covered the backs in felt because I don't like metal touching my skin.  Yuk.

______________________________

Prompt:  Team Spirit - Wordy
Team:  Randomizer
Event:  Yarnology
Bonus Points:  N/A
Project Name:  Tree inchie
Brief Description:  I've only made a couple inchies before, but I had a single tree that needed a few mates.  One fell on the floor when it was still wet and got ruined, and the other is kind of wonky.  I saw a little clip about string painting with kids and thought I could try it on a small scale with some scrap sock yarn.  It was too thick still, so I only did the roots that way.  Oh well...it was an experiment.  Quote:   Art is the tree of life.  Science is the tree of death.  (William Blake.)  I don't really agree with it, but it has taken up space in my head for many years.

Project Picture:




I didn't finish most of what I wanted this Summer!  I'm glad Fall is coming with a fresh start.

Hi all!  Sorry I've been MIA this past week, I am super sick with a nasty bug that has just knocked me out cold.  But the Games will go on!  Grin

TODAY is the last day of the Summer Nerd Games!  Have any remaining projects posted by 11:59 pm central time tonight if you would like to receive points.

The Fall Battles will open tomorrow.  I may post things a little early today, or it might be a little later tomorrow, depending on how long I can manage to stay out of bed.  Even if I post the Fall prompts today, please don't start posting in the Fall thread until tomorrow.  Thanks!
