Speak of the devil…I was planning to announce this!

Show Us Your Pins Contest

Put together a display of any kind to show off and store your Nerd Games pins collection (and other pins, too, if you want). Your display doesn’t necessarily have to be crafted, handmade, or submitted for a prompt (but if it is, be sure to submit it for a prompt/points)! Anyone who shares a photo of their pin display in the Winter 2024 Nerd Games thread will be automatically entered into a drawing for a gift card at the end of the season.

What if i wear them? Is that a display? I put them on my work cardigans and jackets to give them a bit of whimsy and personality.

Sure, if that’s where they live, that can be a display! Or, if you take them off the cardigans, what do you do with them? You know we’re not much sticklers for absolutes around here, lol. Flexibility and creativity! :upside_down_face: :smile:

Honestly, I only take them off to wash them. I leave them on the dryer and put them back on when they come out. But I do have some additional pins in a box that I am sure I can fancy up a bit for this challenge.

I have items for all the prompts this month. I’m just waiting for my partners to receive them in swaps. I also purchased the most complex sewing pattern I will ever have attempted. It doesn’t look like much, but Howdy! It is going to be hard! Wish me luck. :crossed_fingers: :four_leaf_clover:

You are a sewing queen! You can do it! :heart:

Fingers crossed. This pattern includes lots of glue and cardboard! And I will have to string a zipper myself. Eeps!

I’m kind of in the same boat – waiting for secret stuff to arrive. Although now I’m also kind of waiting to see the Feb prompts for a couple of things currently slotted as Free Range…

I am now caught up on tracking and updating the team roster/checklists. Sorry I got behind. Between getting sick (I’m still sick) and losing our old man cat, Frankenstein, I’ve been a bit of a mess. But life is getting back on track again.

I am so sorry @storerboughtcreation . I know how much our fur babies mean to us. Never apologize or feel bad for having a life and needing time. We appreciate what you do and will patiently wsit, or help you if you need.
I hope you are able to look back at the memories of your Frankenstein and smile soon.

Thanks ladies. We have lots of other stuff keeping us cat parents busy. On this day four years ago, we got Monkey as a two week old kitten. He used to be only 9.3 ounces. Now he’s 14.5 pounds! Our team mascot is so grown up now :heart::heart::heart:

He has grown into a handsome man. You should be proud of how you saved his life. He is a cat, so I am sure he doesn’t care about all the work you did, but we do. :joy:
