madcrafter: Very pretty! Braiding is so fascinating, and I love the peacock colored beads.

Prompt: Big Time
Team: Randomizer
Bonus Points: Community, Swaptastic, Brain Power
Project Name: Resin Peony & Cherry Blossom Kanzashi
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=457125.msg5514284
Brief Description: I did this new kanzashi for an art trade with a friend from University. I used a new resin material! It was a total pain, but I figured it out in the end. I'm excited to work with resin again, but also relieved that my trade piece is done. I am notoriously slow so finishing things is always a relief. XD

Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name:Tea for Two Scherenschnitte
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: This project is not my pattern but I did cut it.  It was in excess of 5 hours mostly because of the lettering, which is never easy to cut.  This project was cut using a knife.  It was supposed to go to a charity auction but it wasn't finished in time.

Thanks for looking

craftADD, those bowl cozies look great! I love the fruit fabric especially.

sbc, thank you for the comments!

Mountains, thank you for the comments!

gozer, thank you for the comments! You're welcome to use the bookmark idea - it's very simple but also enjoyable. I'd love to see your take on it! One drawing a week sounds like a great challenge. I always like to see your art.

apple, the blue bridal set is gorgeous! I'm definitely thinking about commissioning you when I get married.  Cheesy

madcrafter, that wirework is so pretty! yay for team Wordy!

Prompt: January - Hurt/Comfort
Team: Wordy
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Yoga Mat Bag
Project Link: -
Brief Description: I made this bag for my dad! We took beginner yoga classes last winter and had a great time. In this project, I tackled the buttonhole stitch on my machine. I had so much trouble with it before, could not get it to do what I wanted! I think I have it figured out now though, even if they're a bit uneven.

Prompt: January - Hurt
Team: Wordy!!
Bonus Points: Timely
Project Name: Co-Workers Bowl Cozies
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Just like CraftADDchick, I think that bowl cozies are the perfect item for someone under the weather. Or, for me, when the weather is under freezing!  It's super cold here right now and everyone at work has been using the microwaves because they want something warm on such cold days. I was telling a friend I needed to make a bowl cozy for another friend for her birthday and two of my co-workers asked me to make them one as well. They are sweet ladies so I agreed. This should keep them warmer and if they use chicken noodle soup, hopefully from getting the dreaded cold. Also, I got that awesome handmade tie dye fern fabric from LeapFeetFirst who got it in a swap from sloth003. Just wanted to give credit. I love that fabric and am excited that I will get to see it everyday (at least in the winter).

Appledainty I love the idea of a New Years portrait. You look like you were having a good time. The Bridal Kanzashi set is absolutely stunning! I bet it looked amazing on the bride. The petals going down to the bells look like upside down hearts. Your sculpture is fantastic too. I am sure your cousin was very happy. The new technique resin flower is beautiful. Love the translucent looks of it!

Madcrafter the bracelet is beautiful! I love the colors you used. The Scherenschnitte is very cool too. I would never have the patience or talent for that. Dont forget to claim your TIMELY bonus points! Also, if you post it up on the boards so you can get Community points. Its very pretty. You should let the rest of Craftster see it too!

Arcadian Driftwood I agree with LBBB, the fabric is beautiful. It works great for the mat bag. I love the way you did the drawstring! Its very clean and professional looking.

gozer I am so impressed by your drawing and coloring skills. I haven't taken an art class since I was 12 years old. I wish I'd taken a few in college. My drawing forte is stick people :p Your bowl cozies use such fun fabric. They all look great! It's been cooler in AZ lately, which has been feeling great! It was 102F warmer here than it was in Fairbanks, AK the other day where my parents live. It was a wonderful 60 here, and -42 there. I'd much rather have our current weather. Smiley

appledainty I am also impressed by your drawing skills. Your self portrait looks great! What I saw of your blue cherry blossoms as I quickly scrolled past the butterflies is very pretty! Is that bead work? Your Nine-Tailed Kitsune & Kit Sculpture turned out lovely! I hope your cousin loves it, and I'm glad you were able to repair it after it fell! Congratulations on finishing the first research project of the 2019 season! The resin flowers you made look so real! I love it!

madcrafter That bracelet is amazing! You hand cut the entire tea for two project? WOW! It turned out great!

Acadian Driftwood The fabric you used is gorgeous! And kudos to you for learning how to use the buttonhole maker on your machine. I haven't tried that function yet. Maybe I'll watch a few YouTube videos and try a simple project soon.

I decided that for my New Year's resolution, I would try to comment more on projects everyone submits. I am notoriously bad at it, so I'm trying really hard to remember to stop in and leave a few words. So far so good, but we're only about 1/24 through the 2019 season, so we'll see if I can keep this up. :p

storerboughtcreations - Adorable little hat!  I love it.  Delicious looking food, and that doll is AWESOME!  Is the Santa ornament made with plastic canvas?  I have such a soft spot for those types of ornaments.

gozer - Beautiful art work, as always!  I love those necklaces; how cool to incorporate fabric.  Those bowl cozies look perfect.  I <3 yours and bunny's friendship. Smiley  That cat bag is excellent.  You always do such great fabric combos!

bunny1kenobi - That's such a great variety of pretty jewelry!

craftADDchick - Excellent coffee cozies.  That shawl is really beautiful, and I love all of those bowl holders.

Acadian Driftwood - That persist pillow is fantastic.  Love those spice collections, what a good idea!  Those book marks are super cool, and the fabric cranes are wonderful.  Another cute idea!  I love that yoga mat bag!  Pretty fabric.

appledainty - That self portrait is awesome!  Beautiful jewelry, and love that prompt interpretation!  Fantastic poly clay and resin work!  Wow!  Cool!

madcrafter - Super cool bracelet!  I've done a lot of kumihimo, but never with metal.  It looks awesome!  Beautiful paper cutting as well.
