Bonus Points: (include which bonus points you think you've earned, e.g., Giver, Engineering, UFO)
Project Name: pin curls
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: PI PROJECT! Curls are circular. I got it in my head to try pin curls. Everyone was doing them back in the day Smiley It wasn't as much work or as uncomfortable to sleep in as I'd thought it would be.

I received from Annchen!

All the contents:


Isn't the tin great? I love mail. Even the bottom is decorated:


And what is inside?


Magic rabbits! They're fantastically small and adorable.

She says the 4 say they can do coin tricks. She sent along a Swedish coin for them to practice with.
There's a little copy of Tales of Beedle the Bard for them to read on their journeys with me. And what's that button?


An emergency portkey!

Thank you so much, Annchen! Everything is wonderful!


Since you seem to be having some trouble with photos, here are some more of what I sent:

Wow, LM! You officially take the prize for most projects in 1 post- I've never had all the tabs I open to pin things not fit at the top of my screen before Cheesy I love those cards, the fabric baskets, your new purse, and the doll. He is super impressive!

Wonderful box, Inselaeffchen!

Project Name: Lil' Monster
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I started making this- the blue and green monster, not the dalek Smiley -for the little traveler swap, but it just wasn't turning out the way I wanted. My mother was ooing over him, though, so now he's hers.

Brief Description: After try #1, this guy came along. He went through several versions. I kept trying to make him fancier, but it just wasn't working. I think he's kinda cute.

Project Name: Lil' Traveler's Tin
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My first altoid tin decorating project, but I've had a bunch in my stash forever. I tried paper. I tried yarn. I tried beads. Then I raided my stash of my favorite supply and the one I'm most used to working with: Fabric! There's some yarn, too, that was leftover from another project. So was the glue.

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Wockets in Pockets
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I'm not a Dr. Seuss fan. There, I said it. Nothing against him, I just don't care for his books and never have. I do, however, love Monsters, Inc. which takes place- mostly -in the city of Monstropolis. So, for Dr. Seuss day, I decorated the classroom door with construction paper and goggly eye monsters in pockets, a la There's a Wocket in My Pocket for others, but, for me, a la Monster's Inc- but not nearly as cool.

15  More Exploding Etuis in Completed Projects by Calabaza on: February 14, 2015 09:36:38 AM
Christmas was a while ago, but with life and all my friends and I take a while to meet up and exchange gifts.

This exploding etui went to D:










This one went to E:











D. and E. love to craft. I've found these boxes incredibly handy for storing things. I made theirs 4"x4"x2", tall enough to comfortably store thread on its side. The grommet tape works great for storing blunt-tipped needles! The weave is loose enough but not too much so. I'm certain they can think of other uses as well.

Here's a tutorial if you want to try making your own. No sewing required!

All hail kale!  Smiley

*feeling a bit weird posting non-kale-y things, but there is something green*

Prompt: February Dye

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Neverending Macaron
Project Link: not yet
Brief Description: For the Winter Nerd Battles Swap. It was a blast! I finally was able to swap with Smeddley (who, it turns out, does not have a cat.) I was rather intimidated. She hinted at wanting a macaron, though, so I made her one inspired by The Neverending Story.

Aw, thanks! Smeddley, I am so happy you're happy with your things! I'm thrilled with mine!

After snapping some pics while the sun was still peeking out and wrangling technology into submission, here's what Smeddley was wonderful enough to send me:



A red hood! I love hats that cover my ears and this one incorporates my folk and fairy tale theme. *Thumbs up* I hadn't noticed, but I pinned this pattern multiple times. Figures. It's super! (Nevermind my stupid expression.)
You can see a bit more here:




For the supply portion she sent me a bagful- literally -of trims!



I love trims. Like I told her, though, I'm too cheap to buy bunches so I wander away sadly after ogling them in the store. But these are mine now. Mine! YAY!


Thank you so much, Smeddley! You are a fab partner. Anytime.

Thank you!

Great projects, LM! I love the colors in the yarn you used for those scarves.

The rose is lovely, FG!

Thanks for posting the link, rbr. It made it nice and easy to find!

Thanks, guys!

Roler, thanks for the info! The recipe was different from a lot of pancake recipes I've used because it didn't call for oil or melted butter and a bunch of sugar went in. I'm not complaining  Smiley

Neat idea with the goal book! I am also in love with the bunny ATC. The afghan is lovely! The little horse looks so cuddly. The orange diary is fantastic! I love orange.


Prompt:  January battle - cold
Team: randomizer
Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: Magic 8 macaron
Project Link: not yet
Brief Description: This was another one that had to wait a while to get made after I did the fabric up.
My answer to that old conversation starter question- Would you rather be too hot or too cold -has always been too cold. I don't like it, but I don't like being too hot more. That being said, I can't wait for summer! This macaron has a metal zipper and, like all the other macarons, is built on metal buttons. Metal is cold to the touch.

Love the alphabet hoops idea!

Prompt:  December India

Bonus Points: UFO
Project Name: POW-erful Macaron Coin Purse
Project Link: not yet
Brief Description: It's bright! I did up the design and had it printed by Spoonflower, but didn't get around to making a 'caron out of it until Christmas. I'm not sure if I love using printed fabric or doodling by hand more. They each have their place, I guess. I love macarons!

Bonus Points: -
Project Name: Hottokeki
Project Link: I found the recipe here. It says they're Japanese pancakes. I don't know if that's true (Roler? Can you confirm or deny?) Either way they were good!
Brief Description:
Watch me connect them up:
cold characters=frequently villain=not villain, just misunderstood=if someone just sat down and talked to them, maybe over a plate of pancakes, theyd be nice=riiiight Grin
