Very nice! I didnt know decoupage medium would work on metal. If I was very organized, Id make some for my classroom.

I was just procrastinating (in classic fashion), and scrolling through my collection of Craftsy classes. It turns out that I have a class on broomstick lace! So, Im going to follow along with the first project and see what I can learn from it.

So, Im finding broomstick lace to be very slow going. Has anyone else tried it? If so, any tips?

Of course, it could be because I have worked on it with a room full of 11 & 12 year olds...

How about #sassyhookershawls or #CSTRSHSAL (or #CSHSAL) for Craftster Sassy Hookers Shawl-A-Long?

And, MistressJennie, I know exactly what you mean! I have often found myself saying, " But it still works! Um... sort of..." Fortunately, I'm getting a little better at chucking stuff that is less than good (but only a little better... I grew up with not a lot, so I'm used to well-worn goods... even now I have some pants that are in desperate need of replacing {hole in one, ripped belt loop that made a hole and broken off button on another}, and when I said, "You can't really see the hole in the inseam" I realized that I need to spring for a new pair...or three).

I honestly find computers & internet things so complicated, the more simple the better for me. I check the "most recent posts" feature to keep up with all the posts here. Extra messagey stuff would likely blow my tiny mind, lol Cheesy.

I get it Grin Some days, if I get one more e-mail...

What does that second one mean?

That's the "buddy" feature we were just chatting about.  Here's what it is https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=408281.0  You can get a notification when a buddy posts a new project, or you can view your buddy feed to see all posts.

I am not sure how to check and see if I turned off a buddy function, if I ever came across that I would have done so though because I usually do click on the maximum privacy stuff out of sheer paranoia, lol.

Well that explains why I couldn't add you to my buddy list, craftylittlemonkey! Smiley

Hahaha! What a great idea! Did you dye the shirt with turmeric first?

I've made my stepdad t-shirts that he can ruin and I put random logos on them. I made sure to tell my mother that he was allowed to wreck those shirts so she wasn't yelling at him for wrecking his good ones Smiley It works, and every time I see him wearing one of them, I get a chuckle out of it! Hopefully this shirt works as well for you!

And, in order for points to be tracked, the month & prompt must be included? Kind of like not putting your name on your paper... no name= no credit Wink

Welcome back to the land of the living, LovelyMiss! You have been missed, and I hope that you're back on the upswing!

I wouldn't mind a change to the format by switching it to a yearly one. As someone who can't always get projects done in once season when I have a nice matching prompt, I'd love a little more time to get a project done for a prompt. Having the summer be a special round is a great idea!

I would like to keep the Team structure the same for the regular rounds (I am very fond of Team Textbook! We have a pretty high project completion to team member ratio, and even if we don't "win," we rock! ).

Maybe, to keep some extra zing in the season, the Red Alerts (and maybe UFOs) could be time specific (not just end of season...maybe end of quarter?). I'm assuming monthly battles would still end at the end of the month. And, I did like the "post comments on other people's projects" points (maybe those could be quarterly so people don't post comments only once a round). I feel like the comments have dropped off (guilty!), and having a points opportunity encourages people to make sure to share the love.

I know that the Games really increase my crafty productivity, and I really do LOVE the nerd-centric prompts, so any changes that keep the Games running smoothly are a win, in my opinion. I appreciate all of the hard work that everyone does behind the scenes, and wish I could do more to help out (but every time I volunteer to do anything extra, lately, life says, "Oh, you have free time? Here's 10 extra responsibilities for you!" Seriously, it just happened on Monday, and I am NOT happy about how it was done...  Angry ). If there was something small I could do to help out (like track one small part), I'd gladly do it (and I'm knocking on wood, throwing salt over my shoulder, and anything else to prevent me from jinxing myself).

Honestly, I don't see any cons to it... especially if it lightens the work load for you and encourages more people to join in. As one who typically doesn't like change, I think you're right that it'll be a seamless transition, and the change, overall, is minor.

Will we have a January to May season to start, then have a Summer breakout season, with the next season lasting from September to May, and then continuing with Summer/Sept. to May? Or, will it be a calendar year setup with the Summer as a breakout?

And now, I can look forward to January 1st and LovelyMiss, you can focus on getting back to 100% without worrying about the Battles for the rest of the month Smiley
