1  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Odd linking problem on: March 03, 2015 06:25:28 PM
I am having problems in the Curiosity Cabinet Swap gallery thread.  If I click on any of the specific post links (the "title" at the top of each individual post that would usually allow you to get the link for that specific post), it is taking me to different pages and posts in the same gallery.  The problem seems to start with the second post on page 12 of the gallery.

Here is a link to what is supposed to be my post on page 12 of the gallery: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=437697.msg5288670#msg5288670

I have tried in different browsers and different computers, so it seems like it might not be a problem specific to me.  Just thought I would mention it since it's kind of an odd one.  Has this been an issue for anyone else?

Thanks!


Update:  I'm noticing the same problem in several other threads now, too.

The Nerd Battles welcome all players from the Nerdyverse to join! The games are to inspire, encourage, and motivate your crafting adventure.  Players can join anytime during the season.

Are you wondering if you are part of the Nerdyverse?  John Green describes it quite well...
Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff  Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-cant-control-yourself love it.  ...When people call people nerds, mostly what theyre saying is you like stuff.  Which is just not a good insult at all.  Like, You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.


Rules of Engagement
--There is a list of prompts for you to complete.
--You complete a prompt with a crafty item you think fulfills it; you can use your description to make it clear on how the craft fits the prompt.
--Players must craft to the best of their abilities and have a minimum of 30 minutes of crafting time per submission.  
--A project can only be submitted for one Challenge/Flash Mob/Battle Royale/Alert prompt.
--A project does NOT have to be "nerdy, it only has to fulfill the prompt as you see it.
--Submitted projects must be started and completed during the current season, unless otherwise noted.
--There is SO MUCH to do in the Nerd Games.  Do not feel like you have to craft everything.  Do what inspires you.
--We welcome all players from the Nerdyverse, no matter their Geekdom.  
--We are never mean.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Curiosity Shrine on: February 13, 2015 02:12:35 PM
I made this for underthemountain in the Curiosity Cabinet Swap.  I think the box part was about 4" x 6", but I neglected to take measurements.



The inside edges are covered with an old dictionary page.





I tried to work in as many as her themes as possible: birds, aliens, anatomical hearts, insects, black.







The back and roll on top are covered with "Pearl River Paper" I purchased from skybluepink.  The roll is just a cardboard tube I covered and capped with some painted game pieces and mirrored crystal gems.





The frame around the heart is molded hot glue.



Thanks for looking!  And thanks to underthemountain for swapping with me!
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / BSG Apollo cupcake doll on: February 11, 2015 05:12:14 PM
This was my first cupcake doll.  I made it for pioneer9 in the Winter Nerd Battles swap.  I followed ghilie's pattern, but I didn't joint the doll in all the recommended places.  I did a trial, and I thought he could stand up better when I only jointed the knees, and I thought the joint in his elbow made him seem less muscle-y, so I left that out, too.  Cheesy





I thrifted some t-shirts to cut up for his tops, after many attempts at using other materials.  It was also my first boy doll, and I went through many, many iterations trying to figure out his hair.  I ended up using fake "grizzly fur," which was a challenge, but I think it turned out okay.



I saw during my research that he seemed to have a belt with a side release buckle...which I just happened to have, so I made him a little belt, too.  It ended up serving a purpose, though, because I had to make his pants a little larger to accommodate the big feet and narrow waist.  Cheesy



I just cut out a hexagon and drew his tag on paper because I couldn't find an acceptable metal alternative.



Over all I think he turned out pretty well, especially for a first attempt at cupcakes, boy dolls, and character dolls.  Grin  Thanks for looking!

8  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 103 ENTRIES / Soup three ways on: October 07, 2014 07:39:22 PM
I joined a CSA this year for the first time and found myself in an abundance of fresh organic vegetables.  Soup is my s/o's favorite, so I was getting a lot of requests.  My mom suggested that I make boiled dinner, since that was favorite my great grandma used to make often.  Starting with the boiled dinner idea I made some alterations, and ended up making a basic soup in three different variations.  I just winged the ingredients, since I never have everything on hand for normal "recipes."  Cheesy

Boiled dinner with
Green and purple cabbage
New Red potatoes
Carrots
Ham



I add the seasoning to a piece of cheese cloth and boiled it in the pot the whole time.  For this version I used 1 bay leaf, about 1/4 tsp of thyme, 1/2 tsp of onion powder, two cloves of fresh garlic, and a few shakes of black pepper.  I used about 8 cups of water and added the ham, potatoes, and carrots, and brought that to a boil for about 25 minutes.  Then I added the quartered cabbages and boiled for about 5-8 more minutes.

 

With
Collard greens
Red potatoes
Carrots
Ham

I was out of cabbage this time, but we had a ton of collard greens.  It was basically the same process as above.  I treated the greens like cabbage, but added them a few minutes earlier in the process...so at about 20 minutes instead of 25.



With
Fingerling potatoes
Broccoli
Ham

This past week was my second to last CSA pack and we are getting down to the end of the crops.  We did get a nice head of broccoli and a bunch of fingerling potatoes, though.  So I used the same basic process, but inside the cheese cloth bundle added a halved onion we also received with our pack instead of onion powder.  I also included about 1/2 cube of chicken bullion that I had left over.  I added the broccoli toward the end, the same as the cabbage or collards.  (I probably would have made it a cream soup, but we have been sick and my s/o wanted broth. Grin )

   

Since ham is so salty to begin with, I didn't add any extra to any of the versions, and they were all nicely seasoned.  I also didn't peel the potatoes, but gave them a good scrub with my Dobie sponge (the best way to clean potatoes/vegetables, in my opinion).  Wink  I like this basic soup base because it is so versatile, and have made it five times this summer!
