Ludi - That house is adorable! A whole village would look adorable on a display shelf too I bet. No pressure now. Wink

Calabaza - I love those coin pouches. My first thought on seeing the side-view version was that they would make really adorable cupcakes! Anyway, those are wonderful.



And... on my project, thank you everyone for the input and clarifications. I will get it right next time. Cheesy
However, since I committed to the research project I think I will go ahead with it, wherever the inspiration came from. One of my resolutions this year was to create a body of work in book arts. I am very intrigued by them but don't have much to show for it. I made a couple of art books in January and find myself looking everywhere for inspiration. So... I'll stick with the research project, due by the 28th, inspired by an interesting word. I will share some progress images later as I have been working on the rough sketches this weekend. Thank you everyone for your patience with me in learning this process. I'll get it, eventually. Wink

I'm glad you're going with what inspried you!  That's really why the Games are here.  I really admire book arts, so I'm extra excited to see your research project!

Again, thanks to our wonderful and supportive players!  The Games are a lot to take in at first, so it takes courage to jump in, and I think asking questions and learning from each other is part of the fun! 

BadWolf314 - Genius idea with the chicken wings!  Cheesy  I love your let it go and Olaf projects, too!  Super cute.

Ludi - Amazing house!  It's astounding what you were able to do with a few inches of felt and some floss!  I love the roses going up the side, and the roof...!  I want one for myself.  Grin

Calabaza - Your coin purses made me smile...love the yes/no on the 8 ball when you open it!  And the POW!  Original Batman is one of my favorite shows ever.  I was so excited to hear the series was finally going to be released on DVD sometime this year!

BadWolf314 - Hahahaha! Chicken wings! That was awesome! Your "Let it go" portraits are so beautiful and quirky, love 'em. And Olaf is adorable. I am going to have to watch that movie!
Ludi - Beautiful Inchies home. The detail is amazing.
Calabaza - Cute coin purses. My husband and I watched a marathon of old BatMan and cracked up. Awesome theme!

Thanks guys!  I was lots of fun to do and I think I will make another using wool felt instead of craft felt.  The craft felt is a little fuzzy for this scale work.  I just have to figure out how to make a nerdy inchie house to fit one of the prompts....

Thanks!  Smiley

Ludi, that's another great piece of embroidery you've got there!

BadWolf314, very nice work on the "dice" and that hat! I love the atramentousy (can it be made into an adjective?) bag! Your dice look lovely in it.

Did you do Talk Nerdy to me yet? Either a word for house or small would work.

Love the companion cubes.
