21  Re: 50 Projects More or Less...2017...Let's Create and Have Fun! in Craftalongs by geekgirl1000100 on: January 15, 2017 06:37:14 AM
About the January challenge:

I have a TON of craft supplies.  and for all kinds of different crafts.  But I could not think of a craft/craft item I would want to get rid of.  Even if I don't do it very often, I pretty much do use everything I have.  But I did make myself throw out a bunch of old acrylic paints and some ink pads that had dried up.  I also threw out some bits and pieces of ephemera I knew I would never use and weren't nice enough to pass on to others.  I ended up with 1.5 trash bags full of crap  Shocked

For a new to me craft, I decided to try charcoal drawing.  I have some nice charcoal pencils that were given to me (thanks PerfectlyBohemian Smiley ) and I had never really tried using charcoal pencils.  It was fun.  And very messy.  I wouldn't say I'm great at it but I can see me using them on occasion.  Both pictures were inspired by pictures I saw on pinterest.  They are pretty simple but I wanted mostly to focus on the shading which is not something I've even been good at no matter what the medium.

22  macaron bracelet in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by geekgirl1000100 on: January 14, 2017 09:01:48 AM
I made this macaron bracelet out of polymer clay for a personal swap.  She had it pinned several times on her pinterest so it was an easy decision!  Cheesy

I made this jigglypuff hoopla for mandit1990 in a personal swap.
It's felt pieces on a glittery background.

I received 2 lovely ATCs.

First from mandykaye for artist's choice.  A really pretty watercolor background with a stamped tea image on top.  I love the colors.  The picture doesn't show the background off as much as I would like. Thanks for the cool background extra!

And from curiousfae for my herb theme - a coriander watercolor.  Great job on the coriander! And it's one of my favorites Smiley
I think I almost have enough herb ATCs to start thinking about how to frame them and put them in my kitchen.  I was looking at some of my options at AC Moore this weekend.

26  Gingerbread Muffins in Dessert by geekgirl1000100 on: January 12, 2017 07:42:19 AM
These One Bowl Spiced Gingerbread Muffins were really good.  I tried the recipe because it only used one bowl and I am lazy   Cheesy

Of course I had to alter the recipe a bit,  I rarely make a recipe as is. 
While I love ginger I am not a big fan of nutmeg or clove so I almost always cut back or cut out those ingredients.

Here are my changes to the ingredient list
-   Instead of mashed banana I used canned pumpkin
-   No orange zest
-   No cloves
-   Used 2 tsp cinnamon
-   1/8 tsp nutmeg.

I took these to work and they were devoured.

and with maple glaze

27  quilled dragon in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by geekgirl1000100 on: January 12, 2017 07:32:34 AM
I used to do a lot of quilling but got away from it.  The personal swap I did with mandit1990 inspired me to drag out all my quilling supplies and make this dragon.

Jasper is an awesome name!

I had a lot of fun crafting for mandit in our personal Christmas stocking swap.

In no particular order here is what mandit made/got for me:

(I didn't get a picture of the  felt fish cat toys she made for my cats!)

This really awesome watercolor of the Great A'Tuin from Discworld ( And the 4 world elephants: Tubul, Jerakeen, Berilia and Great T'Phon)
I love this a lot.  I need to find a good place to hang it

This hilarious and math-geeky hoopla.  I wish I could take it to work but the mild profanity would be frowned upon

A Rory ATC (from Doctor Who).  Rory is one of my favorites.

a mixed media cat canvas.  Mandit said this was her first attempt at mixed media and I think she did a great job.  Love the colors.

Super cute earrings

a River song no-sew tote bag.  It's a good size.  I'll be using this a lot

The actual stocking - it's in the shape of a paw and is made from Doctor Who comic fabric

opposite side

double-sided headband
one side is wine themed

and the other is coffee!

Tons of extras in the form of ephemera:
There's stamps, papers, ribbons, beads, gears, a bamboo crochet hook and lots of other stuff

One of my favorite extras - a steam punk owl stamp

And a person stamp.  I've been wanting one of these and I was with mandit when she found this at a thrift store and bought it.  I was jealous because she found it first.  I didn't know she planned it for me Smiley

And I had a hard time getting a picture of these without glare but on the same thrift store outing she also found these awesome looking cards.

I receive 2 ATCs:

First a doctor who themed one by BigBangMomma. It came in a really cute monster envelope.  It's about Rory.  Good old Rory.  I like how the background is Rory's bio!  Thanks!

And a cool doodle ATC from curiousfae with a quote from the movie The Secret.

curiousfae - glad you got a chuckle out of the dino ATC.  I was hoping it wasn't just funny to me. (that happens a lot Smiley )

Ladybugs - cute gecko!  He's so little.  My sister's kids have a bearded dragon so I am used to seeing bigger pet lizards.
I traced the turtle outline and went from there.
