Prompt:  June - Big Time
Team: Analog
Medal Event: craftology
Bonus Points: swaptastic
Project Name: Minecraft vs. Mario
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: In the Big & Little swap, my little guy and I worked together on this for Abbeeroad's little guy.  This can be either checkers or chess, depending on which side of the tokens are used, and how many of them.  Of course, you only need 12 for checkers, but 16 for chess.  So there are 16 red and 16 black tokens.  Here's how the chess pieces break down (I got the Skeletons and Enderman in each other's spots somehow in the pic, oh well):
Pawns = creepers
King= Steve
Queen= Alex
Bishops= Skeletons
Knights= Enderman
Rooks= TNT

Pawns= Toads
King= Mario
Queen= Peach
Bishops= Piranha plants
Knights= Yoshi
Rooks= Bombs

Project Picture:
How the pieces are made - perler beads (just along the edges) sandwiched between card stock (each side has a double layer) with the characters modpodged to each one.  And yes, doing 32 of these little guys took FOREVER (and probably longer to do with the kiddo than it would have been to do on my own  Roll Eyes).  Especially since we tried several different methods to make the tokens before we figured out something that would actually work.

Wow, AIMR, I admire your crazy tight organizational skills!  I throw mine in a box and then scrounge when I need something.  Roll Eyes

Brief Description: My littlest and I made this for Abbeeroad in the Big & Little swap.  (I don't think she's on here, so I'm going to risk posting pics.)  I masked everything so carefully, and then we had a great time splashing paint everywhere!  The next morning I took the mask off, and saw a weepy mess.  The paint was too wet (this is the danger of trying a new technique) and bled under the mask.  If I hadn't known what the design was supposed to be, I wouldn't have been able to tell.  It was SO disappointing.  But then I remembered a friend's crafty mantra: "There are no mistakes, only opportunities for embellishment."  (Cute, huh?  And true!  Wink)  So I got my paints back out and got to work, and saved the day!  I think I deserve a badge or something...  Oh, wait, there's a Lemonade badge, isn't there?   Cheesy

3  Shadowhunter t-shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by bunny1kenobi on: June 25, 2016 11:21:21 AM
I made this for the recent Book Swap.  I am a big fan of the Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare, and I sent my partner a copy of "City of Bones" from that series. 

I also sent a shirt that features the fearless rune.  (The runes play a pretty big role in the stories.)

The shirt is a much brighter blue than this picture shows.

4  City of Bones mugrug in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by bunny1kenobi on: June 25, 2016 11:18:25 AM
Not sure if this is the right thread for this, but this is a mug rug I made based on the book "City of Bones", by Cassandra Clare,  for the book swap.

It features a quote that says: "Unfortunately, we are all out of bitter revenge at the moment, so it's either tea or nothing."

5  Amelia Peabody double sided pendant in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by bunny1kenobi on: June 25, 2016 11:14:13 AM
Hi!  Made this for the book swap, and since my partner has received, I can post!!

This was crafted to go with the book, "The Snake, The Crocodile, and the Dog" from the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.  Super fun series, CANNOT recommend it highly enough. 

Anyway, the pendant features Amelia on one side and the letter A on the other.  How fortuitous that my partner's first initial is A as well!  I think it may have been fate...

Anyhoo, here's the goods!  I promise I sent it with a chain attached... Wink

6  Amelia Peabody fan art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bunny1kenobi on: June 25, 2016 11:07:48 AM
I made this for the Book Swap recently.  One of the books I was crafting for was from the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters.  The book I sent was "The Snake, The Crocodile and the Dog."  The series is about a quirky family of Victorian-era Egyptologists who solve crimes while they are discovering archaeological treasures.  Fun, witty, adventurous... good stuff!  Anyway, the main character, Amelia, is famous for making lists.  In that spirit, I created this:

Bonus:  It's magnetic!

Details of swap:

This has been a really fun swap in the past.  It gives participants a chance to get to know more about other members of our crafty community.

The idea is to find something that you have in common with your partner, and craft to that.  Maybe you dig the same TV show, or types of books.  Maybe your hair is the same color, maybe you both just love Mexican food, or you have the same number of kids.  Perhaps you both play an instrument, or both love to run. Whatever it is, you can craft something that has to do with your commonalities.  

And we wanna hear what you have in common!  So make sure when you post your goodies in the gallery, that you share what your commonality is!  Grin

Also, don't forget that you need to post in the thread when you sign up, and drop in at least once a week, let us know you're crafting away merrily.

This swap will have a more in-depth q'naire than you might be used to, just to help get some juices flowing regarding what to share with your partner.  I realize that we are going to be sharing a lot of ourselves with total strangers, so be intelligent about what you tell them, but share as much as you feel comfortable with. The questions are mainly for guidelines, so if you feel uncomfortable answering any of them, feel free to skip those ones.

This swap will be for one medium and 2 smalls --OR-- 2 mediums.  Spoiling is allowed if agreed upon by partners.  (Of course spoiling is allowed!)  A handy dandy guide to sizes:

By Time
-Large = 3 or more hours
-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours

By Size
-Large = A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Large = $30 or more
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less

Send outs will be expected by July 30.  Tracking number will be required if shipping within the US.  If shipping internationally, PM me info from your receipt.

I received from Beautifulsoul yesterday, and it was an AMAZING package!!

Here's the entire haul:

I thought the popcorn and cider were a clever touch, considering Joyland takes place in a carnival.  I started reading last night, too! Wink

Close up of the picture:

The quote says, "Live today fully and you'll create a lifetime of meaningful memories."

This adorable little prize box (not sure why it's sideways)

had all of this inside:

She also sent me this gorgeous trinket box!  It has a cute little drawer that was full of beads and whimsies:

When I opened the lid (the interior is gorgeous, and I'm not referring to my reflection...), I saw:

Fortune cards!  These are really cool!  

Some of my favorite cards:

"Your business will thrive beyond all expectations"
"Make yourself pretty, it will be worth it"
"Royalty will cross your path"
"You may expect a baby announcement" ( Grin Grin Grin)
"Freedom is coming your way fast"
"You're going to go on a life changing trip"
"There soon will be light in the darkness"

Thank you, Beautifulsoul, this is a phenomenal package!!

I received my last card!  Kinda sad.... wish I had enough room on my dance card to keep playing, but I have too many things I've committed to already.

Anyway, here is my steampunk card from loca4crafts- it is SOOOO COOL!

Thank you!  I so dig those vintage images, and this was a very imaginative way to do a steampunk card!
