Nerd Games - Fall 2020

PrincessHobo could have totally used any of the four you made me. It was the bratty two year old that told her she couldn’t :joy:

She absolutely loves her HK bowl cozy though, so thank you for making it for her. I got told off by the bratty two year old for using my favorite bowl cozy that she thinks she has claimed for herself. I love toddlers. Life is never dull with them around :hearts:

I totally get that- but sometimes toddlers can be a handful and I figured the less conflict the better, plus I have a bit of a soft spot for PrincessHobo. So… :heart:

Project Name: Owl ornament
Project Link: My first Christmas ornaments of 2020
Brief Description: This owl ornament is a lot like other owl ornaments and magnets I’ve made in the past, except this time I made it more explicitly Christmassy with the holly fabric! I made it for @AuFish in the Ongoing Ornament Swap, which is still going on and accepting new players!

Project Name: Potions Shop ATC
Project Link: The Count and Potions Shop ATCs
Brief Description: I made this for @bluebird in the Ongoing ATC swap, for the theme “potions shop.” These bottles look fragile and breakable, but they’re made up of a combination of pen, colored pencil, and crayon drawings, as well as some with cut out bits of aluminum foil, washi tape, origami paper, and fabric. I had so much fun collaging this one together!
