We have been doing Nerd Games Swaps in Spring and Fall.  I was wondering if anyone is interested in doing a swap this round?  I am thinking of sign ups in early/mid October, and send outs in early November.  The last many rounds have been for one medium item of your choice (based on your partner's list), but I'm open to other ideas or themes, if people have them!  Let me know what you think!

QueenHobo - That shark blanket is so wonderful, and the tiny sloth is adorable!  That HP cross stitch is too funny! 

storerboughtcreations - Those Halloween sweaters are so CUTE!  And holy EPIC! project, that TARDIS is AMAZING!  Super Spud is fantastic, and I actually lol'd at Bangers and Mash.  Too perfect!  The soot sprite is adorable, too, especially with the little stars, and the frog is so cute!  I love its happy face.  Great sock monkeys and red bunny, too!

roler - I always love seeing your uchiwa fans!  So very very cool!  Thanks for sharing your process, too!  And you know I love your felt kitties!  I look at mine everyday and smile. Grin

RedheadWithThread - Haha, I love the toddler harness!  It looks great, and hopefully it is helpful for you. Cheesy  A very nice dice bag, too!

Noxika - All of your dolls are just so delightful and detailed!  Wonderful crafting, as always.  I can't even pick a favorite.  I love seeing the different techniques your trying, and the unique styles you bring to each one.

Smeddley - Those are adorable monsters!

Research Project Proposals

Research Project Name:  Junk Journals
Team:  Randomizer
Brief Description:  I am going to make a few (at least two, maybe three or four) smaller-ish junk journals to use as examples for an upcoming workshop I am leading.  At least one will be ring bound, and one will be twine bound.  I need to figure out an decent option for covers, binding variations, and embellishments.

Research Project Name:  Junk Journal Workshop Supplies
Team: Randomizer
Brief Description:  I presenting a workshop on journaling for mental health, and during the second half we will be creating handmade junk journals.  I need to assemble kits of supplies for the attendees.  It will involve researching/trying out best options for beginning crafters, and creating or preparing many of the supplies, such as cutting down/preparing journal covers, pre-cutting pages, pre-embellishing some elements, making tons of ribbon paper clips, etc.

Agreed, roler!  It's super frustrating, and that is a thoughtful and well articulated statement of the problem.  I'll send them a message as well.

Yes, you may absolutely propose it, gozer, even if you're not posting projects this round.  I'll get added it to the Research Project list.  Good luck!  That sounds like a great way to keep your hands and mind busy during those arduous treatments.

It's so much fun to look at all of the awards! Did we break a record for most number of projects posted in one season?

Great question!  The answer, though, is not quite.  That record still sits with the inaugural round in Summer 2013.  It was definitely a high for the recent rounds, though.  Here are the numbers for all the past seasons, just for fun:

Summer 2013:  529
Fall 2013:  174
Winter 2013-2014:  266
Spring 2014:  320
Summer 2014:  459
Fall 2014:  316
Winter 2014-2015:  335
Spring 2015:  326
Summer 2015:  433
Fall 2015:  376
Winter 2015-2016:  325
Spring 2016:  276
Summer 2016:  337
Fall 2016:  240
Winter 2016-2017:  338
Spring 2017:  335
Summer 2017:  435

Total for all seasons (at the end of Summer 2017):  5820

I hope you all know and have some pride about how amazing the Nerd Games are...that is a huge amount of projects for our relatively humbly-numbered group!  Cheesy
