Project Name: Masks for Donation
Project Link: Free Masks! (You can have one too!)
Brief Description: Just a few of the masks my mother and I have made recently, displayed by Maccha the sea turtle (she is not wearing hers correctly, however). These masks are floppy when you’re not wearing them (hence Jar Jar!).
Project Photo(s):

Also, I am removing my prize of two masks from the Nerd raffle, because I am now offering masks for free to anyone who wants some! I will also mail them to you for free! If you do want to pay something, please make a donation to your local food bank instead. :slight_smile: These masks are cotton, two layers, with no nose wire and no filter pocket. They have around-the-ear elastic, and are machine washable. I only have adult sizes, men’s and women’s (I am a woman but wear men’s size because I have a large head). If you want any for yourself or loved ones, or extras for laundry day or variety, please send me a message!

Project Name: The Past Is Gone
Project Link: The Past Is Gone art journal page
Brief Description: I stuck the first layer of this journal page down with homemade Mod Podge that I’d added too much water to (hence the excessive wrinkling/curling). I was going to tag it as fresh water until I remembered my water is softened, so it was actually salt water :laughing:

Brief Description: This is Byron Bunny. He is curious little guy who is always chilly so I made him the jacket. His limbs are moveable but they do not stay where they are placed so he is sort of floppy. Floppy and cute. His ears are definitely floppy! And bunny’s are known for their high energy. Pics without the jacket in the link.
