I love this, so elegant.
Can we get a tutorial?

Ok, here goes. Jumping back in, hopefully I'll get more done this year Smiley
The new format of the game is very interesting, I wish everyone a very crafty year.
Sadly, my images refuse to rotate, so sorry in advance for any neck issues.

Prompt: January Battle Royale - Crossover
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Math tree
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Tu BiShvat is a Jewish holiday, celebrating nature. It's also called the New Year of the Trees.
To celebrate the holiday and tie it in with some of the current material studied in my daughter's class, we were asked to create a tree with math questions on it. My daughter is currently fascinated by Christmas trees, so she asked that we craft one.
So, the crossover here is a Christian symbol, the Christmas tree, celebrating a Jewish holiday.
Made from stash materials only.
Project Picture (was snapped in the middle of the night, in the morning the tree already went to school):


Prompt: January Coffee Shop AU
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Coffee Cookies
Project Link:
Brief Description:
These cookies have coffee in them, and cookies always go well with coffee. I tried a new to me recipe. I'm happy that I read the comments before starting, as I had to make some adjustments. The recipe called for one egg, but that gave me some very fun sand to play with, instead of cookie dough. Had to add another egg. The cookies turned out just ok, not amazing. I might have left them in the oven a minute too long.

Prompt: January Drabble
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Heart Ring
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Rings are small, and I've made a lot of this type of ring, so it's very simple for me to make. Such a ring takes me between half an hour to an hour to make.

Prompt: January Series
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Heart Rings
Project Link:
Brief Description:
I was asked to make a heart ring in silver, with no other colors. Just silver by itself doesn't work for this specific design, so I made a few rings to test out different combinations. Still haven't found one I'm happy with.

For tracking, if you are still using Google sheets, there's some pretty clever stuff you can do to make it easier. Like restricting the texts you can put in a certain column to things from a specific list. I did some of that when I did the tracking, and will be happy to help ease the tracking.
I might even get some crafts done Smiley

STAFF OPENING

We have an open staff position for the official Nerd Games Tracker.


I can jump back in, if the position is still open Smiley

Thank you, Tanath!  It's wonderful to see you again!  Grin

storerboughtcreations has graciously and selflessly volunteered to keep tracking, despite some technology challenges, so we're covered.  Thank you, again, storerboughtcreations!   

It's good to be back, fingers are itching to make stuff.
Also glad to know that the tracking is covered Smiley

I just, hopefully, got back into crafting, so I will try this.
Started very small, but it's better than nothing. I will add photos when the photos are sorted out.
1. Sea shell and spiral pendant
2. Started a small amigurumi octopus, it's only my second amigurumi item (first was also an octopus, same pattern), and I'm a beginner at crochet, so it took me while to get even half of it done and looking ok.

craftADDchick - Thanks, it's good to be back Smiley The sauce is a simple tomato paste sauce, nothing fancy.

Everyone is making awesome things, I hope I can keep up on this round.

Oh boy, glad to see that the games are still running. I'm back from real-life Smiley
Have some catching up to do, here's a quick one to get me started.

Prompt: December Battle Royale - Doge
Team: Fandom
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Turkey Meatballs
Brief Description:
Yum, So Turky, Much Round.
Doge is positive and so is getting food in our stomachs. And when my kid specifically asks that I make more of these meatballs, there is much yay.
Planned to have a nicer picture, with spaghetti and grated cheese, but was too hungry and forgot to take a picture before diving in. So the picture is of what was left after dinner (there's more in the sauce, enough for one more helping, I think).

Here's a quick post and dash of the stuff I managed to make this round. I hope to be more active and present in the next round.
Looks like it was mostly about eating, this time.

Project Name: Christmas Lights Bingo
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Went to see one of the neighborhoods in my city, all decorated for the holidays, with my daughter and some friends. At the last minute I remembered an idea I had, so I created a few sheets with pictures of different shapes of lights that we might find. Gave one to each kid to mark off the ones they spotted. Afterwards, we used them as coloring pages to entertain my daughter while waiting for food at a restaurant. (not the best picture of the project, but shows how useful it was)

Project Name: Pancakes

Project Name: Quick lunch from the fridge
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Mixed a few different dishes into this yummy lunch. There's tomato sauce from making lasagna, eggplants from a big batch of antipasti, heated up in a pan with some diced tomatoes and some spaghetti. Then topped with some cheese and gobbled up.

Project Name: Ring for birthday girl
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Went to my in laws for a weekend and met one of my nieces, who had a birthday that week. She requested some more rings, and how can I refuse my cute fans? I only had time to whip up one quick ring for her, but am working on a huge batch for her and the rest of the gang for next month when I meet them all.

Project Name: Israeli Couscous and Cheese Bake
Project Link:
Brief Description:
I love quick dishes, where you just mix everything together and bake. Found this recipe a while ago and already made a few variations of it (with corn and with green olives). We get different shapes (and sometimes colors) of Israeli couscous here. I bake them in a muffin pan and my daughter gets them in her food box instead of a sandwich for her breakfast. The box is returning home empty.
The recipe can be found here:

Project Name: Mini Hamentashen and random cookies
Project Link:
Brief Description:
Hamentashen are traditionally eaten on Purim. As this is a Hebrew leap year, we get a whole extra month in the year. The month that is "duplicated" is the one that has Purim in it, and the holiday is celebrated in the second month. The first month has the day called "small Purim". Someone on Facebook suggested that small Purim should have small hamentashen, and the suggestion caught my mind in a very suggestionable mood. So, dug up some recipes and made tiny triangle cookies. But got tired of folding all the little bits (repetitive element), so made random cookies out of the rest of the dough.
