Because I just cannot stop.  There are just so many to choose from!

Sooooo... still on antibiotics, I'm not entirely sure at this point I'll ever be well, though it's an ENTIRELY different thing now.  It just keeps moving!  At least I can breathe, and the coughing is minimal, mostly just my allergies (which are horrible this year!).  I've not done a ton of crafting, but I have two I need to get in before the end of the month, which is in... four and a half hours...

Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440205.0
Brief Description: There's not much nerdier than D&D, and I recently got my shot at being DM, which entailed a LOT of puns.  So. Many. Puns.  I think everyone had fun, though!

So, last weekend was my first time running a D&D campaign, and I admit I may have gone a weeeeeee bit overboard.  Special thanks to my hubby for naming the campaign, which was a lot of puns and takes on movies and books and various things.  I think, all told, with the dialogue and everything, that about 17 different worlds/fandoms were represented (Sam and Max Hit the Road was just a single throw-away line: "It's a shelf full of Snuckey's Crap").

Anyway, it started out with sketches and bits of ideas all scribbled over note paper:

Rough sketches that would become the maps.  I made large maps of:

The Hovitos Caves in the Cliffs of Mild Lunacy
Lava tunnels in the Mount of Minor Misfortune
Not at all spooky rock cave
Shipwreck of the Grey Pearl
The Smoldering Swamp
Bridge over the River Why
The Bog of Lingering Wiffiness
Forest paths in the Unsurewood Forest
Caves of Lagamorpha
Ruins of Castle Bacilius Anthracis

This is the City of Ankh-Morchicken, slightly rumpled because this is after we played and came home and it was slightly rolled:

(And, yes, I hand-colored the printouts with crayons...)

I also tried to make the traps and challenges relevant to the fandoms as much as possible, in the Hovitos Caves there was, indeed, a rolling boulder and arrows shooting out of the walls, but my favorite was probably The Smoldering Swamp, which had three main dangers: ROENS (Rodents of Entirely Normal Size), Smoke Puffs, and Molasses Sand (which would make you lose your shoes, but not much else, since you sank at 1/4" per hour).  I probably spent as much time writing down story lines and making villains as I did on the artsy part!

In the forest, the lava caves, and the Hovitos caves, I did not reveal the maps all at once - I cut them into pieces and made them choose a direction before I added to the map:

While I had mini-versions all numbered and referenced and whatnot:

Overall, it went well, and there was one vote to continue the adventures at ChickenBlisters and ChickenAle, but the majority opted for the fairy tale kingdom past the impenetrable brambles in the Unsurewood Forest.  So maybe some day I'll be asked to lead again... (we have many games going in the group, what we play usually depends who is available)

Prompt:  July Battle Royale- Robots vs Aliens- Robots!
Team: Textbook
Event: Paperology
Bonus Points: n/a
Project Name: Robot Thank You Cards
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: These are thank you notes for my students who gave me end of the year teacher gifts. They are a bit overdue! But, one of the topics I teach is technology, so I had to go with robots.

Project Picture:

I have a handful of other projects to post (I made one today but it is still drying), and I'll have at least 1 more tomorrow, so I'm going to post a bunch of pics on Sunday.

And, I will try to squeeze in time to comment on all of the awesome that is being posted. I am working hard on cleaning & organizing my almost every room in my house, so I'm trying to limit my computer time (What do you mean the day is half gone? I was just checking Craftster and Facebook!).

My friend who is a party blogger visited earlier this month and we styled a party photo shoot on the theme, Bigfoot's Cryptid Cocktail Hour.  We did lots of crafting and creating and such, and of course we had to have happy hour type eats! 

We did 3 types of panini, using a foot-shaped cookie cutter and the good ol' George Foreman Grill as our panini press. We got to use the tier-ed tray I repainted (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434134.0). Since it was just a fake party, we only made 4 of each flavor of sandwich. I think it would've looked especially good had we been able to PILE ON THE SANDWICHES!

Sammies: Chinese BBQ pork w/ mayo; chicken, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzeralla; & turkey, basil, brie.

You can see a bunch more details about the party on my friend blog, Fizzy Party: http://www.fizzyparty.com/2015/07/big-foot-cocktail-party.html

There are some tutorials on a few of the other projects, on my blog, too. (see signature for link)

I received this adorable painting from Sarasmile - it is sooooo me! I'm hanging it in my office!

Thanks for letting me play along this month - it was loads of fun and a good way to ease back into swapping!
