Prompt:  January Challenge - Hamilton
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Meme
Project Name: Orange Pound Cake
Project Link:
Brief Description: This is a Martha Stewart recipe. It's from a book, not the site. It was fantastic. It is pretty different than the lemon one I made. It took a good amount of juice as well as rind so it was just the right amount of moist. Pound cakes were popular in Hamilton's time. I imagine they always had desert and coffee on lovely china after their meals. Historically they had one pound each of butter, sugar, eggs, and flour. I did not make an authentic pound cake because I'd end up eating it in two days.

Here are a few projects that I made for the Hookers Only Swap (plus one for me, as a bonus Smiley ).

Prompt:  December- All Your Base Are Belong to Us
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Meme Bonus, Swap Bonus, Brain Power, Community
Project Name: Amigurumi Kitty
Project Link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454292.0
Brief Description: I made this for geekgirl1000100 in the Hookers Only Swap. She doesnt like to do amigurumi, but she loves cats, so I figured Id make an ami kitty for her. I used a free pattern from here and she also has a really neat way to tie in the tails after youve stitched them on, which I had never seen before (watch the video it makes it just a little easier to understand), and Ill be finishing all of my amigurumi projects using this technique!

Prompt:  February- Judging/Perception
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Meme Bonus, Swap Bonus
Project Name: Crochet Hook & Knitting Needle Roll
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: Ive seen plenty of hook & needle rolls around here, but I dont think Ive ever made one, so when geekgirl1000100 had one on Pinterest for the Hookers Only Swap, I decided to give it a go. Except for the wonky fat quarters giving me fits, it was a pretty easy project!

Prompt:  February- Your Personality
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Meme Bonus, Swap Bonus, Brain Power
Project Name: Half Square Triangle Zipper Pouch #1
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I made this for geekgirl1000100 in the Hookers Only Swap, and it came from a free pattern on Craftsy. I just love zipper pouches, and I love tucking things into individual pouches, so I was very happy that this pattern actually made 2 pouches at one time, so I got to keep one. And, I also learned how to make something using just one half of a zipper (and how to swap out zipper pulls, but my zippers were two different types, so I couldnt do it).

Project Picture: (With bonus shot of the hook & needle roll all rolled up Smiley )






Prompt:  Free-Range Crafting #2
Team: Textbook
Bonus Points: Meme Bonus
Project Name: Half Square Triangle Zipper Pouch #2
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description: I love zipper pouches, so I was VERY happy that I got to keep this one. I think Im going to use mine for my crochet stitch markers, which is what I made the one for geekgirl1000100 for (except the stitch markers were on backorder and didnt arrive in time so she just got the pouch Sad ). Plus, I really loved the batik fabric (and was pretty happy with the fabric combo, in general), so I was psyched that I got to keep something made using it.

Project Picture: -( The one for geekgirl1000100 is on the left mine is similar, but it has a different color zipper)

Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Meme, Swaptastic
Project Name: Garbage Pail Kids ATC
Project Link:
Brief Description: For the prompt, this is space themed. I'm not into gross things so I chose Spacey Stacy of the Garbage Pail card series. I took some minor liberties with the design. I don't like how grungy it is. I should have not done so much coal.

Prompt: February- Sensing/Intuition
Team: multimedia
Bonus Points: Engineering, meme
Project Name: Alium Free Pizza Sauce
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454358.0
Brief Description: As I've mentioned before my husband has recently found out that he has an allergy/intolerance to alliums (garlic, onion, etc...) we are still in the elimination stage soon to reintroduce, but he's been really depressed with his food options. He loves pizza and I wanted to cheer him up, so I went into the kitchen to wing a sauce so we could make him pizza. It turned out great! I was shocked and delighted. He was over the moon. It will I'm sure become a weekly request. Recipe in link above.

Project Name: Frickn' Awesome Peanut Butter Semifreddo
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=454360.0
Brief Description: My husband picked a peanut butter semifreddo w/blackberry sorbet at a super fancy restaurant we went to. I don't really care for peanut butter, but gave it a try. It was the best thing I have ever eaten! I had to recreate it at home. It is probably my go-to dessert now. I still need to work on the sorbet, but the semifreddo was awesome! Recipe in link above.

Team: multimedia
Bonus Points: meme
Project Name: Big F-Bomb
Brief Description: Hubby's co-worker has continued to annoy him, so as a joke after the little one, I made him a bigger one. This one weighs over a pound and could do some serious damage if they weren't ready for it. Hubby just picks it up and gently tosses it in the air menacingly now. I wish I could see it, his other co-workers think it is hilarious and have requested their own.
