geekgirl1000100 - Thanks so much for the previous gallery links!!  

And PerfectlyBohemian - Ugh, that's so frustrating when that happens!  I hope the base item isn't too difficult to replace!

Oh my goodness, Ezri_B, thank goodness you're all safe!  And it sounds like your son handled the situation very maturely and sensibly!!  I hope it isn't too terribly long before you're all able to settle back down again!

Wow, this event didn't take long to get started!  XD

Another great skirt, bunny1kenobi!  Such a nice colorful print, too! 

You sure hit the ground running, calliemae!!  I think I like the snowy owl the best out of this batch. Smiley  And cool idea to make a duck out of negative space!

Here's my first entry for the season!

Prompt: September Mob - The Game of LIFE
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Owl TM Patch for Mom
Project Link: Pinspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/504121752012234536/
Brief Description:
I decided a bit ago that I'd like to start a TM Patch project for my mother.  I haven't decided what I'll make out of the patches yet, but I at least want to start making a collection of them to use when inspiration hits!  She's been really enjoying a lot of owl crafts lately (and pinning a bunch on the new pinterest account I helped her set up), so I figured she'd like an owl!  I'm kinda cracking up about the unintentionally wonky shape of this patch (oops!), but I'm really happy with how the colors and little embellishments turned out!  This is a Game of LIFE project because it's made specifically for a family member. Smiley
Project Picture:

By the way, is there a regular craftster board for sharing TM patches, or do people usually wait until they're sewn together into something?

I hope the art festival went well! Smiley 

I'm also definitely crafting more than two.  I just wanted to make sure that was alright!

I second Eclectic Dreamer's questions.  Are there old galleries for the previous swaps in this series?

As it is, I've managed to gather / craft about half of the things for my first box so far.  I've been having a lot of fun with it!  My schedule just got a lot busier though, so I'm glad I still have a while before send-outs.

How are other people doing?  Are you crafting most of the items, or purchasing more?

Hooray, my recruiting has been working!!  Welcome to Team Multimedia, dear hesperornis, ol' college roomie of mine! XD  I'll just update our team headquarters to show our research project proposals!

Also, the new prompts look super fun!  I can't wait until I've cleared up some time to work on them!  Although it's going to be tough to choose between board games and video games...

I commented on some of the things in the Nerd Battles main thread, but just in case I forgot anything, I just want to say again that Smeddley's whole package to LovelyMiss is also amazing and inspiring.  You two sure made wonderful things for each other!!

whenindoubtsew - I am really glad to hear that. Smiley  And I'm really looking forward to getting your package as well!!

And oh my goodness, what a great bag!  I love vintage advertising art too. Smiley And thanks for the info on that crafting style - I'd never heard of it, and it looks great!  The robot card is super adorable too. XD

I hope you feel much better quickly, LovelyMiss!

And just to confirm - this is still the discussion thread for the fall battles too, right? Or is there a new one for the new season?

I know the games are over, but I still want to comment on all the last minute stuff! XD

craftADDchick - You know, it had actually never occurred to me to use strands of more than one color of embroidery floss together!  That looks awesome, and I definitely want to try it!  And omg, pudding pops were my favorite when I was a kid!  I'll have to get out the old popsicle makers and try them again!  Also, where do you find CANS of pudding?!  I've never seen it sold that way!  And looks like you're really leveling up your kitchen!  Awesome! 

bunny1kenobi - I already loved that project, but you just made it even cooler! Way to go!  And yup, those necklaces DEFINITELY fit the sparkly theme!  How did you attach the second one?  I've been looking into making some glass pebble necklaces, and am investigating different ways to attach such a heavy pendant to a necklace, when it doesn't have a hole drilled in it.

Smeddley - Hee hee, well, if he ever gets the moving itch, keep me posted! XD  Tasty-looking cookies, btw.  I agree that some fruity jam sounds like a nicer choice than more PB on top of PB!  I like both of your shrines, and side-by-side, wow, what a cool contrast!!  The tree in the top one looks super comforting somehow. 

LovelyMiss - Great photo frame!  And wow, do I ever know about covering tiny imperfections with sparkly things... that's why most of the costumes I've made in the past involve so many sequins! ;P  The photo frame looks perfect though, whether because it was already or because the glitter is working, I do not know! XD What a cute use for those Christmas buttons!  I feel like they'll be much more noticed and appreciated as hair clips than they would have as buttons on a sweater or something.  Nice tree as well, and thought-provoking quote!  Not sure I agree with it either, but it is interesting!

crazyda79 - That hat looks both comfy and cute, and it's so nice that you're helping out!!

Some of these things are true and some of them lies. But they are all good stories.
