Some of these things are true and some of them lies. But they are all good stories.
― Hilary Mantel, Wolf Hall

Welcome to Team Multimedia!  One of the unifying things about almost all types of media - books, movies, music, games, TV, etc. - is that they can all tell amazing stories.  Let's get inspired by all these stories and create some awesome crafts!

Ever crave to have more of a TV series, Movie, Video Game, Book series that used to be popular but has sadly been forgotten? Twilight? Gilmore girls? Naruto? Mine Craft? Tiger's Curse Saga?

Maybe we should have a swap to ease the cravings a bit!!!  Cheesy

Everyone will have a list of their top 5 TV shows, movies, books, video games (whatever) that they miss the most and partners will have to research (a bit) and craft from that list.

~maybe do 1 large/medium and 3 smalls?

~Possibly beginning October for sign-ups depending on popularity

Awww, thanks roler!  My octopus may or may not be looking for a new home...  Wink

artsycandice - caricatures are so amazing, I LOVE them!  Serious talent!

Okay, last two prompts, just in the nick of time.... (new prompts tomorrow?  SQUEEEEEE!)

Prompt:  August - Taste the rainbow
Team: Textbook
Event: Foodology
Bonus Points: It's Edible!
Project Name: PB&J Cookies
Brief Description: I used this pin and the only change I made was that, because it was already a peanut butter cookie (and they are very peanut-buttery) I left out the blob of peanut butter in the middle and just went with the jam.  They were a big hit, everyone seemed to like them!

Prompt:  August - Version 2.0. 
Team: Textbook
Event: Fabricology
Project Name: Shrine(s)
Brief Description: I originally made this shrine for practice for the Whimsical Shrine swap, and it was a bit of a failure.  I tried to stuff together two styles and I really don't think it worked.  So I pulled it apart and made two shrines out of it, and now the fabric-covered one is probably my favorite, though I like the minimalism of the cranes and nest in the tree.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name:  Cotton Rag Rug
Brief Description: This rug was created for Abbeeroad in the IYP Swap (Round 26).  Since Abbee likes upcycled and recycled items, and had just moved back into her house after being displaced for years, I wanted to create something to make it feel even homier.  It is crocheted with 9 different yarns, in a mix of handmade tee shirt yarn (black beefy, black rayon blend, teal, bright turquoise), and cotton worsted weight yarn (deep purple, grey, black, teal, and ombre teal & turquoise.  I forgot to measure it exactly, but it fills up my entryway, which is over 3' wide.

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Recipe Link: Chocolate Zucchini Bread
Brief Description: After years interacting on Craftster, I have become friends with some other Craftsters via Facebook.  When MareMare posted a photo of some double chocolate zucchini bread on her FB, I had to copy her!

What can I do with these tiny pumpkins? They are all pretty small. Some are glossy, some are smooth and some are fuzzy.

Sorry to hear about the accident sheepBlue! Happy that you're okay, but I can imagine it was very stressful. And buying a new car seems scary too, to me. Such a big purchase! You're definitely not the only one already thinking about Christmas, here as well! That's just what happens when you're a craftster (especially for yarnies like me) because generally, crafting a gift takes more time than buying one.

Also, I had previously added this sweater to my list (finished over two months ago) but I hadn't posted it yet. Six months of on and off knitting. If only I could learn to take regular breaks before I get knitting inflammation in my wrist and elbow, it wouldn't take as much time! Alas, I just knit maniacally for a while, until my body forces me to stop and recover, and then I repeat the cycle... Ouch!

class-astronomy/divination extra credit future
project -divergent patches

this was the main part the package i sent in the geek swap. I purchased the bag, and created the patches with felt, thread, and ink effects. I loved the divergent books, but i didn't want to go with obvious themes. i've been hoping to travel in the future, not into a book, but somewhere real, a big roadtrip. i combined my idea into retro postcards, and billboard signs.

front side-you would need to read the books to get the ads. i was very unhappy that they didn't meantion the chocolate dauntless cake in the book. the amity bread is in the 2nd book.

on the reverse side i used the ferris wheel and the train as landmarks a tourist would recognize.

i created the images on my computer, and reverse printed them. then i painted on the paper with ink effects. let it dry, and ironed it onto the felt. then i used a needle and floss to add details. it turned out so well. i will be using the technique again.

class-herbology/divination june extra credit
project-spectrasphere case

when walking outside, it is important to protect your eyes from the sun. they can feel irritated and tired, but the sun can cause longterm damage as well. with the cute eyeglass case they will always be easy to find.

i cut the frames in a retro shape out of pink felt, then found some fabric in the craft section with prisms like luna's spectrospheres! these could help you watch out for nargles! i found the premade case at hobbylobby to match the purse.

project-hemingway atc

another theme from the july atc swap. this time is was specific-a grey cat with wings, and the name heminway. a little research and i found the the author earnest hemingway and several cats with 5 toes. i found a picture of him with one of them. i lightened it, printed it out, then added the wings and grey color to make the cat stand out.

I think I should be allowed to double post here  Grin

This is a neat snag off the internet {sorry, but the sources do not always accompany the ideas, if I could give credit I would, but these are out from the depths of my computer, and long since fell off the history}

M & M's puts out holiday colors in the red, green, white variety. Those are Twix cookie bars around the outside.
M & M Mars company will also sell you specific colors to match a wedding party or other prom event, etc. I am sure they have a website for that. Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness events?

We are celebrating all holidays here, so don't feel that this is just Christmas.

I will add some Halloween here soon, too. That is my favorite holiday. I make some "wicked" finger sandwiches and Witch finger cheese straws. I have to "dig" up the recipes  Grin
