I'm bummed that so much came up with work and getting sick and all these snow storms D: that it kept me from getting more done than I wanted. But! I'm excited with what I did finish and I'm lovin' the craft prompts. I wanna participate in the Spring round as well - lol and I'm ready for bright, warm, spring things.

Prompt:  Challenges - December: Around the World - Japan
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: poptart scarf - swap in OWS rnd 110
Project Link:
Brief Description: I love cute foods. I use to collect kawaii stationary - I loved San-x characters. I've also been a fan of Twinkie Chan and her cutesy scarves for years. So when I saw rscowtown wanting a poptart scarf, I was excited and channeled my inner Twinkie and put this together for her!

Prompt:  Challenges - December: Around the World - India
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: spring mandala - swap in OWS rnd 110
Project Link:
Brief Description: I've been wanting spring time colors in my place because I'm so sick of winter :x lol so I went hunting for spring saris on Pinterest to see what I'd find. I started falling for this blue, green, and cream/gold color scheme.

A girlie in the OWS wanted a mandala (something I"ve been obsessed with lately - and also Indian inspired) - so I had to accept the wish and make it for her!
She wanted spring feelings for her place as well, so things just came all together!

Prompt:  Challenges  - January: Baby, It's Cold Outside - Brrr
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: jewel-tone fingerless bow gloves
Project Link:
Brief Description: OWS rnd 111 item - made fingerless gloves for a lady so when she walks her dog, her hands are a little warmer!

Prompt:  RED ALERT! - New Year's Resolution
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: skull square
Project Link:
Brief Description: I hadn't tried intarsia knitting in years. I did it once years ago and it was not a pretty sight. lol I'm not confident with knitty to begin with, I"m much confident with crocheting. I agreed to an exchange with a girl on Reddit...she wanted a mug cozy with a skull on it. After lots of searching for the 'perfect' skull....I fell in love with this repeating pattern. I was surprised with how much easier it was this time and I really like how it turned out. I was surprised how it was kinda tight - so I've gotta ease up on the tension.
 So this was my first try at intarsia - so I kept this square for myself. <3 lol I'm proud of what I taught myself.
Project Picture:


Prompt:  RED ALERT! - Love is in the Air
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: rose ring
Project Link:
Brief Description: I've never been given roses or jewelry for Valentine's (a book of stamps, mixed CDs, and stuffed animals, yes lol) -  so, this year I gave myself both in the form of this ring.

LovelyMiss you were busy! Super cute owl basket. I love those things. They are so cute and I absolutely love it when I make something useful. The fabric on the second one is really nice too. I love foxes and those were a neat stylized design. I am coveting that book fabric. Oh how I love books! (Hence team Wordy!). The needle book, once again, useful which makes it even better. Love that fabric that you used. Its very pretty! Cute little cross stitch.  WOW! On the Apollo Cupcake doll. He looks fantastic and like it took forever to make! Amazing Curiosity shrine. Love all the textures! And anything with an Alien has my attention. The mermaid shrine is so adorable and so personal. Awe. I am sure she loves that! Lucky Lana! Cool Tardis wallet case. Everyone needs a wristlet at some point in their lives. Great design. Love that deer fabric too. Oooh to rummage thru your stash would be a dream. You have such great fabrics! Fabric and paper are my two mediums of choice too. Great cards. Love that little smiling orange. And the banana bread looks so yummy I can almost smell it! Great project on the Days for Girls shields. It is such a great thing to do!

Inselaeffchen HAPPY BIRTHDAY, I think. LOL! The card looks great! Never had kale but its so popular on here I might have to give it a try. 

Calabaza Adorable little monsters! I am sure they are both having a blast in there new homes now! Love the little bag with the second guy. His home is very pretty too. Cute door dcor as well.

CraftADDchick Love the colors that you chose (or your Mom picked) for the dresser cover. It turned out really nice! I am sure she loves it. That is a very pretty hat too and such a sweet thing to do for the kids. Great cards! Love that stamp! Fun woven hearts and very pretty dishcloth. I would never use it for fear of ruining it. Ditto on the scrubbies. LOL!

Smeddley Those dragon boxes are amazing. They are just too darned cute! I like the pink one best. That was so sweet of you to make the sling for your friend. I am sure she rocked it! And you are killing me with that RRH & Wolf dolls! I LOVE them. I am SO jealous. I want them so bad. I have an insurable RRH obsession. Cool bookmark. Love all the tiny details.
 
Mountains and Clouds Very cool wire wrapping! The flower one in my favorite. It just looks so pretty.

Crazyda79 Congrats on the Light Display award. It looks like it was a lot of fun (and very bright). Your visitor looks like he had a ball! And his star matches your border. LOL!

Mistress_batty that scarf is so cute. Love the little bite taken out of the last one! Beautiful mandala. The colors are very pretty. Especially that pinkish color near the middle. Cute bow gloves. Very cool mug cozy! And what a great idea for a present to yourself. Awesome ring!
