No problem! In theory, anyone part of the group should be able to also invite people. If anyone tries to invite a member to the group, let us know your results!

I love these!  You could probably use any sort of circle shaped hoop to make them, right?  I was using my ice cream lids (the plastic around the outside) to make small wreaths, but I never thought of using them the way you have!  I really like the sunflower.

Thank you!

Yes, you can use any type of hoop if youre making a decoration of some sort. But if you want to make a functional trivet, you need to use natural materials that wont burn or melt when heated by a hot dish or pot. Smiley

Hi Everyone!

With the entire site being shut down soon, we are trying to find a way to keep the craftalong going. It sounds like the admins of Craftster are trying to find a way to bring the site back in some shape or form. In the meantime, several ideas have been thrown around about how we can maybe continue our nerdy craftalong until a solution has been provided. In order to make sure we can keep in touch, I'm creating an email group so I can easily email out info to everyone when we know what our next step is. If you haven't already seen the group PM and want to be added to my email list, send me an email with your Craftster name included (so I know who you are!), and I will make sure you're added.

My email address is my Craftster user name @gmail.com

I like having teams as well. But I propose we change it up some. Maybe only have three teams?

From a tracking/game setup perspective, its easier to not change things up every three months, but from a player perspective, changing things up every three or four months makes things feel fresh and new.

Im good to continue tracking for now, but if someone else would rather take over, speak up!

LovelyMiss, we miss you! Smeddley, if you are taking over, send me a message so we can collaborate.
