These games move super fast, I feel bad for not coming in to comment as often as I'd like/I should, but I have been oohing and ahhing on this side of the computer screen, for sure! I am kind of glad I let my pintrest slide or I would have serious RSI going from all the pinning. Cheesy Cheesy

And now.. the project dump! Wink

Project Name: Halloween Town Sora
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425980.0#axzz2bejyoSZE
Brief Description:  I am a complete video game geek, and Kingdom Hearts is one of my favourites, so when my nephew asked me to make him a Halloween Town version of Sora to give his bf for his birthday, I naturally jumped at the chance.  He was a bit more involved than I first thought and required new patterns for pretty much everything, but I love the way he turned out.

Wink  I made a plush of Norman Reedus, who plays Daryl Dixon on the Walking Dead (to which I am completely addicted) because it seemed like a good idea at the time. Cheesy

Little fingers are
harder to make than I thought
but so fun to pose

Project Name: BMO plush
Brief Description:  My nephew asked me to make him a BMO.  I had no idea what that was, but once he showed me a pic, it was pretty much a no-brainer. Make a boxy rectangle out of fleece -talk about a no-brainer; even a zombie could do it. Wink I had him finished in a day (fastest plush, ever!) and all in all, aside from not knowing a thing about what I made, I think he/she/it turned out pretty cute.

I resisted posting the nail art as challenges, but it is geeky and took me awhile. As I am trying to learn to do it well it is taking up all my crafting time.

I really like the steampunk nails! I don't usually paint my nails (because I either smudge them within minutes, or chip them within hours), but if I did, I'd definitely want to try those Smiley

Alert: Craftster 10th Anniversary Challenge
Team: S & M
Project Geekdom (if any): Real-World Science
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy (while it's a quote by a sci-fi writer, it's a quote about science!)
Project Name: Jules Verne Quote- Adventures in Paper Cutting
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=426497.new#new
Brief Description: Craftster has always been a source of inspiration, and not only does it push me to become better at the crafts I typically do, it challenges me to experiment with crafts that are not in my comfort zone. So, for the Anniversary Challenge, I decided to post a project in the Paper Crafts category. I designed this using the Silhouette Studio software and it took several hours of work to get it set up so it would cut out as one piece. I need a new blade, so I had to hand cut it in a few spots.





Challenge: August: Multimedia: "It's time to play the music.  It's time to light the lights.  It's time to meet the Muppets on the Muppet Show tonight.": 
Team: S & M
Project Geekdom (if any): Science (Be green and love the earth)
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy
Project Name: Kermit the Frog Being Green shirt
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: One of my favorite Muppet songs is "It's Not Easy Being Green" and so I thought I'd finally make myself a Kermit shirt. I had made a freezer-paper stencilled Kermit shirt a couple of years ago to donate as a part of a Muppets-themed raffle basket, but even though I dropped a ton of tickets into the drawing, I didn't win it, and never got around to making another one for myself. For this version, I added the "BE GREEN" to the back because it A) Speaks to environmental consciousness and b) Accepting yourself for who you are (Kermit is so philosophical!).

Challenge: June: Wordy: reading
Team: S & M
Project Geekdom (if any): Detective Fiction (my favorite genre) & Science (brain cells!)
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy (science) & Discovery- I learned how to weld text and shapes together in the Silhouette software
Project Name: Little Grey Cells
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: One of my favorite genres to read is detective novels. As a kid, I even had my own little detective kit (and I probably still have it tucked away in my mother's attic)! I ripped through every kid-detective series the library had when I was a kid (Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, The Hardy Boys) and when I had finished them all, I moved on to Agatha Christie, and Hercule Poirot soon became a favorite (Miss Marple is great, too, but HP is my fave!). When I came across this quote, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I had to learn how to attach all of the text and shapes together to make one continuous piece (I watched a few YouTube videos). Unfortunately, my Silhouette blade needs replacing, so I had to hand cut with an X-acto knife about 1/3 of the design, and I tore a couple of the more delicate connections.  Once I get a new blade, I'll re-cut it (and hopefully find a better frame).




Challenge: June: Textbook- Waves
Team: S & M
Project Geekdom (if any): Science (light waves!)
Bonus Points: Super Nerdy
Project Name: Light Wave T-shirt
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: Nobody likes a science pun better than a science geek! So this is a perfect shirt for me to wear to the next cookout with my geeky friends. I found this great little image of a light bulb waving, and used the Silhouette to cut out a freezer paper stencil. Unfortunately, I thought it would be neat to use glow-in-the dark paint, which didn't cover well on the dark shirt, so I had to apply several coats. I ended up with some seeping under the stencil and some spots where the freezer paper wouldn't peel off (I'm hoping that it'll clean up a little in the wash). I'm sure I'll make another one and either use a base coat of white with a top coat of glow paint, or use iron-on vinyl instead.

Team/Ninja: Commercial Free All-Stars
Project Geekdom (if any):  Halloween
Bonus Points: Discovery, Nerdy
Project Name: Teesha Moore zipper pouch
Brief Description: My s/o liked my Teesha Moore bag and suggested that I should make something for himhowever, as I mentioned after I finished, I am totally burned out on that technique.  But then I remembered that I had a few awesome patches left from nostephot that I received in a swap.  I had just enough to make a little pouch.  I ended up making a separate zipper pouch (for the first time), and then sewed it in as the lining...much easier than what I attempted with my bag!  It will hold my s/o's items that I always end up having to carry in my purse, so theyre in one spot and I dont have to go fishing for them every time we get home.  Grin  With the vampire, cat eye, and skull patch, and the orange and black, I think it's pretty halloween-y, which is great because it's one of our favorite holidays...and I think TM items always demand a closer look.  Wink

LovelyMiss, I love that little zipper pouch! Teesha Moore patches look like a lot of fun to make, but I don't know if I could make enough to make something big like a tote bag. A zippered pouch, I could manage (and good tip on making the zippered pouch first and using it as a lining!).
