Prompt:  AUGUST Version 2.0
Team:Multimedia

Project Name: Waldorf Doll
Brief Description: I had made a curly haired doll for one of my nieces and her older sister then asked for one too. I had thought she'd think she was too old, but to my surprise she didn't think so. Here is her version. I made it slightly bigger (she is the bigger sister.)

Project Name: Piggy Reading Pillow
Brief Description: For my niece's birthday I made her a reading pillow. She LOVES pigs, so the embroidery had to be of a pig. There is a pocket to hold a book when not reading it and elastic to hold the book open while you're reading.

Project Name: Sibling Rivalry Pretzel Bites
Brief Description: I have always been intimidated by the mixing, boiling, baking, etc... needed to make bagels and pretzels. So I knew exactly what I wanted to do when I saw this prompt. I of course decided on one of the hottest, most humid days that I should do this  Roll Eyes I made these beer pretzel bites with Sibling Rivalry Beer ( we didn't care for this beer, but it was so good in the pretzels!) Served with some queso.

Event: Foodology
Project Name: Pretzel Dogs
Brief Description: So my wonderful husband surprised us by stopping home for lunch when I made the pretzel bites. He said the only thing that would make it better is if it had a hot dog in the middle. So after he left again for work I got to work making supper of Pretzel Dogs. He loved them and they made him VERY HAPPY!

Prompt:  July Photogenic
Team:Multimedia
Event: Craftology
Project Name: Senior Pictures
Brief Description: I don't know if photography counts, so if it doesn't please disregard. My son is a Senior this  year, and has NEVER taken a good professional picture in his life! The best pictures ever taken of him were by me, so instead of spending a fortune on pictures we decided that I would do them myself. Not being a professional I'm totally scared to do this! Here are some preview pics, I have more editing to do, and I want to get a few more locations, but I'm fairly happy with them so far.

Project Name:Egg Salad Boats
Brief Description: I live in Wisconsin. We basically bleed green and gold around here. To help in limiting my clothing color palette our local school's colors are also green and gold. So here we have yellow egg salad and green cucumber boats. They were delish! My son had friends over and they loved them so much they asked me to make them again for them. (That is pretty high praise from teenagers!)

Project Name: Embroidered card
Brief Description: I was embroidering a panel for a bag I'm making (probably a future submission) and a friend of mine fell in love with the embroidery I was doing. I decided to make her a much smaller version and send it to her as a little card. She can now do whatever she wants with it. Put it on something or frame it or whatever.

Project Name: Pineapple shawl
Brief Description: I was watching Firefly and noticed there were quite a lot of shawls. There was one that was only on for a second, but it was a pretty grey pineapple shawl. So I went off and made one myself. I was going to donate it, but I loved it way too much! So it's mine. (sorry the pic looks a little funny. It kept blowing in the wind, but it is quite symmetrical.)

Project Name:Bright Future Grad Gift
Brief Description: My nieces' sister graduated this year. She is wonderful, giving, brilliant, beautiful... and we just love her. So when it came to giving her a gift I wanted something a little different than a card. I saw this on pinterest and made my own version. Celebrating her bright future. The card is a bit larger than I would have liked, but there was so much to say that wouldn't fit in a bitty card.

Project Name: Rocky's golden supporter
Brief Description: I love movies. Growing up I lived in the middle of nowhere. There weren't movie theaters, movie rental places, or even cable. We were the first in our area to get a betamax (yep dating myself), then vhs, then dvd. We would host movie nights for the neighborhood. So for gifts people would send/give us movies, and we would watch them over and over. I still have over a thousand movies. This project was inspired by The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I am on the school board and we wanted a creative way to show our appreciation to one of our founding teachers who is leaving. So I made him a Golden Supporter. The plaque says "Founding Advisor & Supporter 2014" And CHS for Cirrus High School on the waistband. Of course the presentation meeting turned into a round of "Janet, Doctor Scott, Janet, Brad, Rocky...." I LOVE our school board!

Prompt:  June Battle Rock Paper Scissor Lizard Spock
Team:Multimedia
Event: Fabricology
Project Name: Spock
Brief Description: It's Spock. The whole thing is about 3 inches. A friend of mine has already claimed it, so I may have to make myself another one... maybe a touch larger for the wall where I have hooplas and doll quilts. (I wanted to embroider around the oval a bit, but he was stolen too quickly)

Project Name:Homemade Tortillas
Brief Description: Baking Powder is fascinating magic. It makes things rise, but I never really knew why. I was looking into it a bit and found that early on potash (a material extracted from wood ash) was used for leavening, but because England;s wood sources became scarce baking powders were developed. In fact there was a major contest for inventors to find a way to convert salt to soda ash.... I found that fascinating. I decided to try my hand at homemade whole wheat tortillas. It was more work than anybody eluded to online. They were thicker than anticipated even though I rolled them thin as paper before baking. They were DELICIOUS though. I used this recipe http://www.littlehouseliving.com/homemade-tortillas.html .
Project Picture:

The tortillas all cooked

Microwave steamed, so I could see if a burrito was possible (ultimate test to me) Super yummy beans, rice, queso, & sour cream

All wrapped up. Not super easy, but it was a solid burrito and didn't get stuff all over when I ate it

Project Name: Boing Cake
Brief Description: It's a cake and the first word used to describe it was "BOING" so that's what I went with. It was a bit of a last minute cake, but it was still well received.

Project Name: Witch Doctor Costume
Brief Description: My youngest was a witch doctor in his play and so he needed his costume. I found some highly underutilized clay and feathers along with beads and yarn to make his costume. He really didn't want to pose for pictures, so this was the best I got. We made the "hair" and headress from yarn, an old sock , felt and feathers. The necklace was made from clay bones and beads. The "loincloth" was from felt and clay bones, feathers, beads, etc... And a spear was made (I don't think this picture has it in) from bamboo, more clay bones, and beads and feathers. He made the shield at school.

Project Name: Dude Food- Cottage Pie
Brief Description: There is a wonderful neighbor/friend that we have. He owns his own business and is very friendly and generous to the entire town. He is also a volunteer fireman, sits on many boards, a wonderful husband, and a great dad! His wife is in the hospital for some surgery and so I brought over some food for them to help them out a bit. He loves my beef cottage pie, so I brought him that, rosemary bread, watermelon & grapes, and applesauce. (He requested no desserts)
(I didn't get a pic of the bread... sorry)

Here's everything ready to go minus the bread

I had to take a bit of time off from crafting as I'm trying really hard to get my craft cabinets into order. It felt so good to get to craft again today!

Prompt:  June Best Things in Life
Team: Multimedia
Event: Craftology
Project Name: Boutonniere
Brief Description: So my son needs a boutonniere for his suit for a school performance, which of course he told me about last minute. Having just read the prompts I decided to make it a challenge. The "leaf" was made out of fabric I cut off of a torn/stained skirt that was headed for the trash. I fused 2 pieces of the fabric together sandwiching a wire that was slid out of a bread twist tie. I used a feather that one of my sons brought me from a nature walk he went on last year. It didn't look quite finished enough, so I made "flowers and leaves" (similar to some I had seen at Joanns) out of this neat foam-ish packing envelope I had received. Then I used some leftover floral tape (from like 10+ years ago) to hold it all together.

Project Name: Family Lazy Susan
Brief Description: Today I painted this lazy susan for my step-mom's birthday. They are redoing their kitchen and because of the remodel they lost a mural that was on their wall of 3 birds flying away from the nest. Which was to represent my brother, sister, and myself when we moved out (that's when it was painted.) Well, I knew it was quite a sadness to lose that little mural, so I made this hoping it will lessen the loss and be something she can keep no matter how many times they redo the kitchen. I used my silhouette for the stencils. I used some extra paint from their actual house. Then I distressed it a bit to match their decor.
The blue birds are my dad and step-mom, the pink birds are my brother and his wife, my husband and myself, and the one flying off is my sister who passed away. The green birds are my 3 boys, my brother's 2 girls and boy, and my sister's 3 girls. The quote is Family- where life begins and love never ends... -Author unknown . This quote is especially meaningful to our family as we watch my sister's little girls growing up. The older two's father is pretty good about keeping us a part of their family and my sister's memory alive, but the youngest's we've had to fight to stay a part of her life. We have always tried to make sure that they know we're always there for them.
