4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: STS (Shop the Swap) 2019 Discussion Thread on: March 12, 2019 04:44:09 PM
I don't have anything new yet, but there's only a few challenges left in our work fitness/walking challenge so I should be able to stop devoting all my time to walking and craft soon!  This week is sloth week and I'm going to read and craft and hopefully by next week I'll have a few new things to add...

I never know what I want, some of my favorite things are things I didn't realize how badly I needed them until I saw them...  Cheesy

Prompt: February Battle - Console
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Mini Joust
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: Technically Joust was originally an arcade game, but it was also ported to the Atari early on, so I'm going with console!  This was a present for my husband for his birthday... I mean, I got him the mini-arcade cabinet for the actual present, but there's no way I was going to wrap that.  So I made him a mini-version to put in a box and wrap!

Brief Description: I started a mini Garmin workout group (work started one, but they weren't giving us challenges, so I started a small subset group) and I am going to make badges for people who complete my challenges, and this is the first cartoon for the badges I drew!

I swear, I will never not feel guilty that I didn't do enough when I get an LV package back!!!  This time is no exception.  OMG, guys, look what ptarmic wumpus sent back with Dani!!!



Obviously, I have a pumpkin thing, and all my friends that follow my PATT posts every year are going to be so in awe of this haul!!!  First, the stretchy amazing pumpkin fabric, an enormous felted pumpkin, and a pumpkin BASKET!! Hand made!



And zipper pouches, you can never have enough of those!



And TEA! I love tea!



Magnets and brochures and bookmarks, oh my!  I will have to look through these (and the scrapbook) more later, after work... Cheesy



And amazing looking chocolate I'm trying not to eat right now because I'm starving and wouldn't appreciate and savor it enough!

Thank you so much, I'm not worthy! Watch, tonight I'll get home and find something else I was supposed to include in the box (that happens more frequently than I'd like) and feel even more over-spoiled!

Kyle and I (and Emma) just got back from an hour-long walk in 33*F (0*C... or would that be 0.5*C? or 1*C?) weather (and I stupidly only wore a long-sleeved shirt and leggings)...  that was warm compared to what it was week before last (-4*F / -20*C), but also cold compared to what it was week before last (61*F / 16*C).  I love the weather in the Midwest!

10  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Cookie Fight! on: January 31, 2019 07:38:06 PM
We had a blood drive at work, and I offered the chance to win cookies as part of it - and, or course, the "fight" between Nutter Butter and Oreo to be the Best Post-Donation Snack had to be more literal... and crafty...

Let's Get Ready to RUUUUUMMMMMMMBBBBLLLLEEEE!



In the Blue Corner, standing 4 1/4 Inches tall and weighing in at 14 grams, NUTTER BUTTER!!!



In the Red corner, standing 2 3/4 Inches tall and weighing in at 11 grams, GOLDEN OREO!!!



DING DING DING DING!  It's ON!  They both come out swinging, and it looks like it will be a tough bout
 




And the winner, by a KNOCKOUT...

NNNNUUUUUUTTTTTTTEEEEERRRRRR BBBBBBBUUUUUUUUUTTTTTTTEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!!!!!!



If you're curious, this was the set-up on my computer desk to get these pictures...



I don't know that it got any more donors, but people thought it was hilarious and didn't complain about the number of emails, so I count it a win!
