So sorry I've been super busy and haven't had much of a chance to post on the thread. We spent a whirlwind 3 weeks in the Midwest, and since we've been back it's been crazy crazy crazy as I'm starting school and figuring out how to adjust to my new schedule.

Not sure if I posted this one of Muno at the Waukesha (WI) County Fair back in July!

Whoa, congrats, FreakieGeekie!!

Also, a nerdy selfie with the nerdy shirt! (Sorry, I don't take too many selfies... Probably not doing it properly.)

Okay.... I've been on the mainland, and since I've been back, things have been still super busy, so I'm going to dump some projects. Sorry they're repetitive; ATCs can be carried with me, and our yard/garden totally died while we were away (oops, apparently our house-sitter didn't get the memo to water anything...), so that's high on my priorities right now!

Bonus Points:
Project Name: New seedlings planted in newspaper 'pots'
Project Link:
Brief Description: In re-planting much of our garden, I have made many newspaper pots and started some seeds in the soil. Soil is dark matter. Seeds are also not easily seen until they emerge. (Like the teeny little tomatoes you can see!)

Bonus Points:
Project Name: Small stone garden bed
Project Link:
Brief Description: One of the issues with living on an island which was once (not long ago) volcanic rock is that our soil is very rocky. So, digging anywhere in the yard will yield many rocks and stones.  I usually pile them up for uses such as this.  I spent a little time building a partially "raised" bed with some rocks.  The ADD-ON item is those little baby watermelon sprouts!

Brief Description: Okay, the crafting time on this was barely over 30 minutes, so I feel little guilty, but here it is anyway. I am growing a kombucha scoby so I can hopefully make more an more kombucha. Right now, the little cultures are cloudy and swirly and look very much like a nebula cloud.

We still exist!  Right now, we're with family in Ohio, and have been generally in the midwest lately.  Here, Muno shows off our view at the cabin!

Awww thanks for the Nerdy nomination!!

Sorry-- I'm on the road a bit and only have some small papery things with me to work on... So more ATCs!

Also, Gozer! I somehow missed your question! The other fish ATCs were acrylic paint and Gelly roll pens (and micron too)!

We had a gig on the leeward coast this morning, and we're lucky enough to have a chance to stop for a little swim in Ko Olina on the way back!

There are several resorts and fancy schmancy condos in the area, so it's pretty cheesy and touristy.



There are some human-made lagoons along the shore to shelter swimmers from the surf. We went swimming in Lagoon 4 (official name is "Ulua," I believe), the smallest.

Project Name: Scrappy Happy Bag

Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=439904.new#new

Brief Description: With some travels coming up, I wanted something fun to carry some art supplies with me, so I made this scrappy bag.  It has bits from other projects (or projects gone awry), and some old fun memorabilia from my life, and I'm hoping will be an inspiration for my creativity this summer as I try to re-gain myself with my first break in three years!

10  Scrappy Happy Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Mountains and Clouds on: July 07, 2015 09:19:00 PM
With some summer travels coming up, I wanted to make something to carry a few arts/crafts/pens/watercolors/etc. around as I go, and I wanted something fun to carry these fun things, so I made this scrappy little bag out of fabrics I have had lying around.

I'm not a sewist at all, so I'm pretty proud that it turned out, and can serve its purpose!




The strap is made out of some of my old worn out (favourite) jeans-- so they can live on!

There are patches on all outside surfaces, and under the front flap, and the inside is lined with heavy duty navy denim.




and the back:




Some details....

Leftover rhinestones from a costume I had when I was an itty bitty baton twirler:



More bling and some fabric flowers (I often spend too much money at the fake flower store):



Polymer clay fish beads and plumeria I had made at some point.


Fun tiny buttons:



Polyclay sushi roll and fun flower beads:




Thanks for looking!
