Prompt:  August battle Speak to the Magician
Team: Clan of Creator
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Yard Jenga Tower
Project Link:
Brief Description: All I could think of with Magician/Wizard was towers, raising and destroying towers. So logically I went to Jenga. I made a yard Jenga for a family reunion (it also happens to be my middle one's favorite game.) It took longer than it should have because I didn't have access to a planer. If I had to do it again, I'd probably buy one  Roll Eyes

Project Link:
Brief Description: I had many pairs of old jeans, flannel shirts, flannel pajama pants, corduroy, etc. so I cut them into bits, sewed them together all higilty pigilty, and made a sturdy rag quilt to keep in the car for picnics and such. It turned out far better than I had hoped.

gozer you can stop on by for breakfast whenever you'd like.  Grin
I do live in a village. It isn't really anything special, (I mean we love it, but...) it is a village because it has a population of fewer than 1000 people. Our population is about 850. We have no grocery store, no traffic lights, no restaurants, etc. We have one gas station, an awesome library, 3 churches, & 2 bars  Cheesy

Project Name: Donut Holes
Project Link:
Brief Description: Last night our little village got hammered by storms. They closed the village and no one could get in or out until this morning. Power was out for most of the village all night, some still haven't gotten any. Lots of flooding, power lines down, but mostly it's trees. Trees through roofs, windows, cars, etc.. It's a mess. We have a few big branches down on our yard, but nothing else. We had power all night, but then at 6:30, they shut it off to fix some of the lines and cut trees by lines. I sent my boy to one of the neighboring towns that weren't affected and had him pick up bananas, oranges, waters, & coffee while I made donut holes by flashlight. Thank goodness for gas stoves  Smiley I've never really fried anything before, so that was new to me. They were good but tasted a bit like pancake balls more than donuts. Next time I will maybe add a chunk of sausage for the boys.
The pictures aren't great because of the weird darkness and flashlight. It was well received and kept me busy since I couldn't do any of my normal work without power. It's raining again and we expect storms tonight again, so most cleanup is on hold for now.

Really great! I just tried reverse applique myself, I may be hooked. I adore the Bowie shirt, I may have to try something similar I think my son would freak over it.

So craftylittlemonkey suggested I make a community post for the fan, so I did. I updated my post, but I thought I'd post it here as well. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452559.0 in case someone else was interested.

Project Name: Rose Tee
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452558.0
Brief Description: I had a tshirt I loved that got a glue spot right on the boob the first time I wore it. I could not get it off to save my life. I decided to do some reverse applique and put a pretty flower on it. Now I have a pretty flower shirt instead of a junker shirt! It has a really fun bumpy texture to it.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Big Liam Fan on: June 09, 2017 08:22:50 AM
My middle son, Liam, graduated last Sunday. It is usually hot and stuffy at graduation and he's an actor and a character so I thought it would be funny to make a big fan of him for me to use. I was inspired by a photo I saw years ago online of Martin Freeman with a similar fan of Benedict Cumberbatch.

I printed out a bunch of copies of one of his senior pictures onto cardstock. I cut them all out which didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would. I then used packing tape to "laminate" them. That took much longer than I had anticipated. (Looking back I should have taken them in to get laminated.) I pressed the tape down really well with a tongue depressor to get a good seal then I cut those out again leaving a bit to keep the "lamination" seal.

For rigidity, I hot glued them to tongue depressors being careful to line it up with the other ones. I drilled a hole a bit bigger than my skewer. I hot glued a plastic bead to one end of a bamboo skewer. I laced the blades onto the skewer. Squeezed the blades together, trimmed the skewer and hot glued a bead to the other end. Once it was dry I released the blades and lined the blades how I liked them. I hot glued a piece of ribbon to the back so that it flicked open just right.

The back isn't all that pretty, but it didn't really cost me anything because I had everything to make it at home. And he laughed so hard when he saw it, it was totally worth it. We're thinking we'll maybe make some more for the whole family for his next play.
