Prompt:  March Techy Y2k
Team: WORDY!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Minecraft stuff
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Ok, it's birthday month at my house. My littlest has a birthday on Christmas Eve, so we wait until spring to have his bday party, which this year will be held on the 28th of this month. He wants a Minecraft theme and in looking for goodie bag things, realized that minecraft toys are CRAZY EXPENSIVE! So we ordered a big jug of perler beads online and started getting crazy.  The boys have been helping me make things and each goodie bag will have a sword and a pickaxe (which I intend to make into zipper pulls for backpacks) and one character face.  I still have a lot to make, but I've made a pretty good beginning!  The youngest made the TNT, the slime, the torch and the diamond.  He's pretty pleased with himself.  My (almost) 18 yr old did a creeper, 2 Steves, a skeleton and an enderman.  It's been some lovely family bonding time and I think I've actually enjoyed hanging out with my boys more than the crafting itself.  Wink

Brief Description: It's a clothing item!  I squeaked my way into the prompt! LOL! I got a tiny bit of black paint on this t-shirt last year when I was painting my son's quilt.  It took me an awfully long time to "fix" it.  I think I like it better this way, what do think, fellow Wordlings?  Cheesy

RBR, I think that Bones card is my fave from you so far!

Also, even tho I'm totally unfamiliar with Dr. Horrible, that card is pretty cool-looking!  The tree and cattle (cow? bull?) are both great, too!

And, speaking of great, I got an extremely nifty card from Allegrae:

It is such a neat mixed media piece!  Anyone who loves oysters would totally dig this!  I love the little bits of "shell", and the stamp!

Brief Description: I made this for spikefan in the ongoing atc swap.   I don't think she's on this thread so I'm taking a chance and posting.  Tongue  I had a hard time deciding whether or not to put her under the battles for "past", but I'm putting her under roaring 20's coz she seems to have a kind of art-deco feel to me.  So I'm going with that.

Hooray!  Will you be posting pics, bluejanuary?  We all love new stuff to ogle...  Wink

Speaking of ogling... I have another atc to share, again from the ongoing swap.

My artistic skills are gradually improving (but I still keep making one cheekbone larger than the other  Undecided).  This one kind of has an art-deco feel to it in my opinion.  I didn't plan it that way, but I'll take it.

Ok, I just realized I've been a horrible swap partner!  Rockingbearranch, I am so sorry!

I just realized I have not posted the fabulousness that she sent me!

Check it out:

And for my supply, she sent me the rest of the fabric and lace that she used for it, so that I can coordinate it to an outfit!  So thoughtful!

Digging the fortune on that card! So appropriate to those of you who are stocking up in case the factory closes!  Shocked

I also got fantastic cards from spikefan!!  She made these for my cupcake and wide open spaces themes:

I think these are both so pretty!  And the wide open spaces one looks so familiar.... Wink (I'm from Arizona!)

I made this ATC in the ongoing ATC swap last month. *Warning* Long, potentially boring research follows:

In Egyptian mythology, when you die, you are taken by Anubis to the Scales of Ma'at, where your heart is weighed against her Feather of Truth.  If your heart weighs exactly the same as the feather, it means you have not sinned.  You also have to repeat the "Negative Confession", which is a list of 42 sins that you say you have not committed.  In fact, the first on that list is, "I have committed no sin", which is what is written in heiroglyphs in the background of the atc, going from right to left as was done when the characters are left-facing.  Also, the left-facing glyphs indicate that the person is speaking to the individual on the left, which in this case is Ma'at herself. (She is featured in "relief", which is also common in ancient Egyptian art.) If your heart weighs more than the feather, then a demoness named Ammit, who is part crocodile, lion and hippopotamus, will eat it and your afterlife will be over.  Brings a whole new meaning to "light-hearted", doesn't it?
