For a moment, thesaurus was winning the battle, but at the last moment, two people crafted for dictionary, so dictionary wins! I had a meme come across my memories right before I finished updating tracking, and saw this meme pop up that I will still share anyway.

Sad Thesaurus… :cry:

And because thesaurus had a meme, I searched for one for dictionary as well!

Happy Dictionary! :blush:

Hello! Here is this week’s advent prompt! :gloves: :coat:

fwa-5

seasonal changes - Craft something to keep you warm, that is soft, has layers, or is blue

5 Likes

I had all of my projects chosen for every prompt except for the battle, and managed to get none of them done! But, last night, I realized that I could complete something for the battle and snuck it in right near the end!

The next couple of weeks will be fairly insane at school, but hopefully, I can settle into the rhythm of our hybrid model quickly (probably just in time for us to go back to remote :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: ), and I can get some crafting done!

Thank you again, @bluebird, for giving us these fun advent prompts!

Question:

When this season ends on NYE, do we want to keep this discussion thread going, or do we want to start a new thread for the 2021 Nerd Games?

3 Likes

I think it would be less intimidating if we started a new thread. I think it would be a good , fresh start, especially for any new people joining in.

4 Likes

Same; I worry that eventually the thread would get too long and overwhelming. Maybe we could link to this year’s thread in the first/in an early post in the new thread so this one is still easy to find should someone want to look something up.

4 Likes

I like that idea. I will make sure to add a section with links for previous years.

Happy Thanksgiving to our American crafters!

I have been struggling to find things to be happy and thankful for over the last few days. But I am determined to be more positive today!

The four things I am most thankful for:

  1. Mr sbc. He’s amazing, we’ve been together for almost 18 years, and I am so lucky to have him in my life :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

  2. @roler. She is my BFF. I’ve known her for 20 years now. We met in high school. And holy cow, that just made me feel old! :joy: She is a wonderful and caring person, and again, I’m so lucky to have her in my life! :hearts:

  3. All of you, my fellow nerds! :nerd_face: I love our crafty family. I love the entire LC community, but the Nerd Games hold a very special place in my heart :green_heart: :hearts:

  4. My kitties. They are a source of endless love (and entertainment!).

I hope everyone, whether you’re celebrating today or not, has something in their life that makes them happy. Sending virtual hugs, and for those of you over-indulging on turkey and pie, may you nap as happily as Frankenstein and Monkey :joy:


(Yes, Monkey is using Frankie as a bed! Lol!)

That is the cutest picture ever! I am so jealous. I have 5 cats and none will snuggle with each other.

2 Likes

The love isn’t mutual. Monkey has no boundaries. Frankie just has the Roger Murtaugh perspective. He’s too old for this… stuff… :joy:

Honestly, I don’t think Frankie minds it too much. But you’ll never see him start the snuggle pile.

Awww, SBC, you can call me anytime you feel like you need another friend! I’m far away geographically but technologically, I’m right there in your living room!! :kissing_heart:

You are one of the kindest people I know, and you and Queen Hobo crack me UP! I seriously love you guys! So glad I’ve had the opportunity to know you, and so many other fabulous people here on LC!
