Prompt: February Random Acts
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: -
Project Name: Love Rocks
Project Link: http://www.love-rocks.org/
Brief Description: Back in December, I found a stone with a heart on it on my way out of the grocery store. I picked it up and on the back it said "you are loved" and a web address. It gave me such a boost that day, and after reading the website later, I decided to make my own set and spread more love in the world. I made 20 rocks, and have placed most of them already (reserving a few for special places I can't get to right now), even putting one in the exact spot where I found the original.

Project Name: Bedroom paint
Project Link: -
Brief Description: We are gradually redoing our house that we bought last fall, and decided on the color "bluetonium" for the bedroom. With the help of my clan (my dad re-taping a lot of bubbling drywall seams, spreading mud, and sanding) it's looking much happier in here. Before and after:

Prompt: February Red Alert - Romance
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Giver, Brain Power
Project Name: Denim toys for shelter dogs
Project Link: -
Brief Description: Beyond any human love story, I melt at animal rescue and adoption stories. Isn't the love of a pet just the most pure? Inspired by the dog toys that Smeddley posted, I learned the square braid and made these two using old jeans. One has a nice crinkly plastic egg carton inside, and the other is nice and dense for the heavy chewers. Every week I volunteer to walk dogs at my local animal shelter, so I couldn't resist showing some pics I've taken this winter! Here are Andy, Ross, Lexi, and Faya (and she will destroy any stuffed toy in minutes, so I hope the little knotted one will hold up longer).

Actually I was thinking the opposite: that if we still have teams without captains, then making captain's challenges that everyone can participate in would make that less of an issue.

I also like having a captain be associated with their own team, but maybe we can change their roles to interact with the whole group more. Like they could do a small challenge that everyone could participate in, and somehow related to their specific team. Something simple like the 5 point flashmob this season.

Acadian, recycling jeans into dog toys makes a lot of sense. How wide were your strips? Been a long time since I've done a square braid. Maybe I need to try my hand at it to see how much I remember. DD#2's dog might appreciate a new toy.

About an inch and a half, but just eyeballed as I cut. The denim strips were the length of a pair of pants from the cuff to where the pocket starts.

And hey Wile E! Good to see you again!

clm your thing for the day is hilarious!

Honestly I'm getting a little tired of doing things every day, but when I sit down and force myself I usually find something to inspire me and mostly enjoy the results. It'll feel good to have an entire month behind me when this is done, and then I can be lazy for a while. Smiley

Thing 18: two dog toys for my local shelter made from recycled jeans. One is square braided inspired by Smeddley - I think this one will be perfect for the heavy chewers who destroy stuffed toys in 15 seconds. The second one has crinkly plastic egg carton inside, and has square knotted ends.

The rest of my things need to hide behind picture links for now! Thing 19, a bookmark for gozer as a prize in the nerd battles. I still need to laminate this before I send it out.


Thing 20 an altered book page (don't look CH) made with the scraps from my love rocks.


Thing 21 another book spread, collage. Only one or two more to go before I send it back to ChameleonHound.

Grin Acadian, I haven't posted any of the bookmarks yet. I think what you were admiring is the paper pieced mini quilt, aka swap project, I made for cmarion3. But thanks!

Oh that must be it! I was seeing it as three bookmarks next to each other.
