Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that I have created the Winter 2021 Games thread and Discussion thread. I will include links to each when I post my end of year tracking update, and at that point you can start posting in those threads.

@bluebird, @gozer, @craftADDchick, @roler, @Smeddley, @megwell, @Lynx2Lancer, and @Bunny1kenobi - I’ve mailed out something to you at the address you provided earlier this season. I’m not sure when it will arrive since I’m sure the USPS is swamped right now, but I’m sure it will be there soon.

Thanks so much!

I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed with so much right now, that it will be a wonderful surprise for vacation.

Oh man, I totally fell apart this season! I will be able to craft a few things over the next few days, and will have to get creative to make them fit the prompts. But, my ambitions far outstripped my time and energy this time.

As much as I’m looking forward to the end of 2020, I’m still trying to squeeze in a few more projects! For the first time ever, I had a prompt that I simply did not have a project for, but since there’s no way I’ll get all of the prompts completed, I’m okay with that! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I have 9 projects that I think I might be able to make before the end of the year. With 2.5 days left to craft before the end of the year, I don’t know if I can do it, but I’m going to haul out the sewing machine, and get cracking on the first one!

I can’t wait to see what crafty fun 2021 brings!

I did not get as much done today as I planned! Or, anything done, actually. It was a bit of a vacation day for me and I rarely do that, but it was definitely needed. I did pull out fabric for one item, and may dig out some for another, if I can find the colors I need (I may be able to use felt for part of it).Maybe I’ll do that before I go to bed, so tomorrow I can tackle 3 specific projects with the sewing machine. If I can find the fabric I bought, I could tackle one more, even.

I’m going to try to go to bed at a decent hour (by 11:00) so I can get busy early tomorrow!

And, thanks @storerboughtcreation and @QueenHobo! I got my Nerd Games 2020 commemorative piece today. I love it! Thanks again!

I currently have four WIPs on or around my desk, and a billion other things I want to do at once in addition. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: We’ll see if I finish any of them by the end of the year!

I may have one last project to post. If I don’t finish it in the next 24 hours, it will be the first finished project of 2021!

I have done zero crafting in the last month, work has been insane and I just have not felt motivated. Ah well, next year? sigh

I have been working on my goal book, which has taken a TON of time, so I’ll have a “project” worthy project by the end of the week… hopefully…

Special Thanks:

@Smeddley: Thank you for being such an amazing lieutenant. I vote we promote you to co-captain! I really appreciate all of the wonderful prompts you give us every month. You are amazing! :medal_military:

@bluebird: Thank you for giving us so many wonderful advent prompts this season! I personally felt motivated to craft even more to try to fill those extra 12 slots. Judging by how many others ticked off a bunch of the advent boxes, I think others were inspired as well! Maybe we can do this or something like it next fall! :medal_sports:

I’d also like to give a shout out to the persons with the most points this season. Both @roler and @storerboughtcreation tied for most points with a whopping total of 1690!

And one last huge shout out…

to everyone that participated in the Nerd Games this year. 2020 wasn’t great for so many reasons, but it also wasn’t all bad. Our nerdy bunch sure helped keep me sane. I hope everyone feels the same. I love our crafty online family. You all make me so happy! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

The fun continues…

Please join us for the Winter 2021 season.

@Smeddley will have the prompts up soon, and once she has those up, feel free to start posting!

Also, I started a brand new discussion thread for the 2021 season. So feel free to begin posting in the new thread!

Thank you again to everyone, and I hope to see you in the new season!
