New prompts posted!

May Battle - Jedi vs Sith

May Theme - May the 4th

  • Yoda - craft something small, wrinkly, wise, or green.
  • JarJar Binks - craft something floppy, high energy, water-loving, or… annoying
  • Wicket - craft something furry, cute, or brown
  • R2D2 - craft something utilitarian, useful, metal, or blue
  • Rancor - craft something ugly, misunderstood, or sad (I’m still not over the scene in the pit, where the keeper was distraught that his beloved, terrifying ‘pet’ was killed…)

I had to laugh when I saw these. I wrote and asked if we were going to have Red Alerts because of May the Fourth. Bahahaha! You were one step ahead of me. Great theme and prompts! I was in need of a little more motivation too. I felt myself getting a bit lazy in the last week. :blush: :running_woman:t2: :scissors:


I love the new prompts @Smeddley! And big thanks to @storerboughtcreation for tracking all the madness! :smiley:

And, thank you for the fun Nerd Games token!!! Big virtual and social distancing hugs to @Lynx and @storerboughtcreation!!


I received my charm today, thank you so much… it reminded me of high school days & letter jackets & I wanted to put it on my chest for all to see.


did a personal swap with @father_of_furbs for the furby bear for my oldest, Beast Jr. But my youngest is trying to steal it now :joy:


New prompts for June are up!


Thank you for the fun prompts, @Smeddley!

I’m almost caught up with tracking. May was a crazy month already, but then I ended the month by beginning my first D&D campaign ever. It’s been a lot of fun!

I will try to get the tracking update finished tomorrow.


Tracking Update!

Useful Info

Before I begin the update, I wanted to let everyone know that several of you have reached out to me about the tracking sheet. It’s hard to find your name to view your checklist because so many names are listed. I figured out a solution tonight.

If you now find your name in the team roster and click on it, you should be linked directly to your sheet. If your name links to someone else’s sheet, let me know and I can fix it :slight_smile:


So far this season, we have 19 active players! A total of 160 projects have been posted, including 5 big time projects, and 7 research projects!

As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me! Craft on, Nerds! :nerd_face:


What?! I was the only Sith in a Game full of masks?! LOL!!! :crazy_face: :mask:


Thank you so much for the update and the pic of Monkey! He looks like he is growing up to be a handsome man.


He turned 18 weeks old today. He’s huge! The tech at his last appointment weighed him three times because she thought he’d be almost 9 pounds. He was just shy of 6. There’s a lot of floof


My kitty wasn’t acting right yesterday so I took her to the vet and got her some antibiotics. She is already acting normal again, but the vet called her chubby. I told him she was really fluffy. He agreed and said she was fluffy AND chubby. LOL! Oh well. I tried to defend her but when I said she wasn’t acting right, I mean she skipped breakfast. I knew something was wrong. My fluffy girl never misses a meal. :laughing:


Sorry to hear “Miss Fluff” isn’t feeling well, but glad the antibiotics are perking her up!

I hope she starts feeling more like herself and is ok! I hate it when my cats aren’t feeling well. They can’t tell us what’s wrong.

She was acting like herself and like nothing was wrong as soon as we walked back in the house. Before I even gave her any meds. :sunglasses:


I put this in the main thread as well, but just in case people didn’t see it -

I only need 4 more projects before I will have crafted all the prompts! I have 2 pieces about 80% done. I am going to do my best to get them all done. Is anyone else close, or done?


I had plans to get them all done, but I might not get all the way there. I will try, however!


Nope. Not even close. But I should get a few more projects done.

I applaud all of you that either craft all the things or get close to it!


I officially crafted all the prompts! :tada: Whoo hoo! It’s been a LONG time since I have done that. Not sure I’ll be able to do it again any time soon but it was a fun goal to accomplish while wfh. :hugs:
