I am such a slacker!

I got some fabulous cards recently, allow me to dazzle you all...

From audio, this adorable traveling sales frog:

From blupaisan, I got this awesome unsolved mystery card.  The pearls and lace are perfect touches!

And from greybird, two beautiful cards, a sparkly Angelic Power rune from Shadowhunters:

and a delicate kitty on the moon:

Thank you all!  These are all such delightful cards!

Prompt:  April Pride and Prejudice
Team:  Wordy!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Ghost Town ATC
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I always find ruins and ghost towns exciting and romantic.  There is a ghost town in my neck of the woods, we like to visit often.  It's called Goldfield.

Project Name: The Bat and Bungler ATC
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This is a silly pub sign for the ATC swap.  But it really is inspired by a real life adventure I had about 15 years ago.  My husband and I went to Cancun with some friends and visited the ruins at Chichen Itza.  One of the buildings, nicknamed "the Nunnery" (don't remember why) had a small entrance way, kind of hidden off to the side.  We decided to do some impromptu and unauthorized exploration.  Using the light from a video camera as a flashlight, we stooped down and entered the tunnel, single file.  There were about 5 of us.  Our friend in the lead suddenly began shrieking,
"Get out!  Run!"  So of course, we all turned tail, none of us having any idea what was really going on.  It wasn't until we were all outside the ruin that we realized that there were bats all over the roof of the tunnel, the whole way along.  Our light didn't reveal them until we'd gone a fair distance.  I was so amused by the freak out, but I wanted to find a hat and a bandana (to cover my nose- bat guano is NOT good to be breathing in) and go back.  I was outvoted, though.

Project Name: Recycled Christmas tags
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I participated in the 12 Mini Days of Christmas swap last year, and Onyxnox wrapped my gifts with these absolutely gorgeous tags.  I couldn't bear to throw them out, they are so pretty!  So I just got paper and glued it over where she wrote on the backs of them so that I can reuse them.  I can see myself reusing them again and again, replacing the new paper every time.  They are so pretty.  I'm sure I'll wear them out!  LOL!  I'm putting these under Avengers because they are all very colorful and kind of play on the same team.  And I'm a bigger fan of the Avengers than JLA.  Sorry, just am.  Although I do like Superman.

Project Name: Upcycled ATC
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I used an old thank you card, and this seed-embedded paper to create an ATC for my partner's "up cycled" theme.  I can't think of anything more green than turning a piece of paper into an herb garden.

44  Common Ground Round 4!! in New Swap Theme Ideas by bunny1kenobi on: May 31, 2016 02:02:46 PM

I'm thinking about opening Round 4 of the Common Grounds 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. 

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.

I'm thinking about making this swap one medium and 2 smalls, or just 2 mediums.  Whichever each participant chooses.  There are a lot of great swaps starting up for summer, so I don't want to overwhelm anyone - we'll just keep it nice and easy. 

Thinking of starting sign ups third week of June, with 3-4 week crafting time.

I'd love to hear your feedback on this!

Research Project Name: Quilt as you go wedding quilt
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Community, Epic
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=447984.0
Brief Description: I made this for my son and his wife for their wedding in March (I'm really slow...!)  It's really loud, but they seem to like it!  Hooray!  I started this in February. I haven't counted the hours, but I'm pretty sure that 45 would be on the LOW side for this.  It took me about 4 hours just to bind it.  Roll Eyes

47  Epic Queen sized wedding quilt!! in Quilting: Completed Projects by bunny1kenobi on: May 29, 2016 11:52:41 AM
I made this quilt as you go quilt for my son and his bride.  The wedding was in March, so I'm REALLY slow, but I'm just glad I got it finished before Christmas, before they started having kids, before the sun burned out.... LOL!

From these humble beginnings...

The first 2 blocks (I was so proud!)

To a basketful of 90 of them!

I received a card from rockingbearranch for my Cabinet of Curiosities theme.  She sent me some actual curiosities!!

It came in a fabulous little tin, and the loose feather is from her youngest chicken, Chippy. 

Thank you, RBR! Very cool card!

My son is a huge Dan TDM fan.  He really wanted a shirt, but they are more expensive than the budget can handle at the moment.  So I made him one.  He is over the moon.

Project Name: Dan TDM shirt
Project Link: na
Brief Description: My littlest is a HUGE Dan TDM fan (TDM stands for The Diamond Minecart), who is a popular youtuber.  He wanted a Dan TDM shirt and my budget can't support a $35 t-shirt at the moment, so I made him one.  It will be worn often. In fact, I will probably have to wrestle him to the floor to get it off of him to be laundered.
