Aww, what a cute little bird!

I got some FANTASTIC cards, just in time for my birthday yesterday! Woot!

From the lovely and talented gozer, I got this for my monsters theme:

She knows I'm having a hard time seeing my babies leaving the nest... she said this was so that I'll always have a little one heading off to school.  Isn't he adorable?

I got this AWESOME mine craft card from sammylouise40:

This card couldn't have been more perfect for my little guy.  He was over the moon!  He has mine craft figures and now they have their very own nether portal!  He was SO excited!  Thank you, sammy!

And from kwality570, came this insanely adorable dinosaur:

I mean, seriously -- how CUTE is this?  I know I asked for dinosaurs for my little guy but I don't honestly know if I can find it in myself to give this one up!!  SO cute!

Thank you, ladies!  You all knocked it right out of the park!

36  Steampunk earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by bunny1kenobi on: May 28, 2015 11:25:20 AM
When I couldn't find my other steampunk-ish earrings to wear with the awesome necklace gozer made for me a while back, I took advantage of the opportunity to make myself some new jewelry.  I think these may be one of my fave pairs of earrings now!  Winnnn!!

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

I have one more project to add at the moment-- when I couldn't find my other steampunk-ish earrings to wear with the awesome steampunk necklace gozer made me a while back... well, all I can say is, "how fortuitous!"  So I made these for ME! They may very well be my new favorites.

We will be having a monthly contest during the Summer Games, just to keep things a bit more interesting.  Anyone who  might wish to donate a Wordy prize for the contest is welcome to do so.  PM me if you'd like to participate!  Just keep in mind these guidelines:
~We absolutely do not wish to overshadow the Season Raffle, so these will be SMALL items, smaller than the raffle items would be.  Think "zaps".  Wink
~We do have international members on our Team, and if you are wishing to donate a prize, shipping said prize to the winner is part of the donation, so again, small is a good idea.
~If I already have prizes lined up by the time I hear from you, please don't be offended.  If this little incentive is well- received, we may keep it going for subsequent seasons, or maybe it will just be an annual thing for the Summer Games.  Either way, I'm sure other opportunities will present themselves.


All members of Team Wordy who complete this month's Battle Royale get their name put in a hat to win a fun little (I do mean little) goody - and here it is!  A laminated, VERY Wordy bookmark to hold your place in your latest adventure!

GREYBIRD, you are the random winner of the June contest!  Please PM me with your address so that I can get your bookmark in the mail for you!


The player with the most bonus points THIS MONTH (not cumulative) will receive this fun little origami book from Greybird as your prize! Just to clarify, bonus points are Community, Engineering, Giver etc... basically, if something gives you 20 points it doesn't count as a bonus.


Players who complete all 5 Zaps and at least one Free Range craft will have their names tossed in the hat for a cute dictionary page necklace courtesy of Gozer.


The player who contributes the most total points to Team Wordy over the course of the Summer Games will receive Gozer's lovely Ellie bag... with some mystery goodies inside as well!


This prize is for our friends from the other teams!  Everyone who completes a Team Wordy Team Spirit prompt will be entered into a drawing for this fabulous book necklace!
