Prompt: January - Snow Squall Team: Project Name: hummingbird for raffle Project Link:3D Hummingbird Mandala Brief Description: My second Cricut project! I will offer this as a raffle prize. It was surprisingly easy to make and went pretty fast. I did have to cut the light pink layer a second time because Cricut DS hiccuped and didn’t cut the right piece. And then crashed on me. But I got it running again and finished! Project Photo(s):
Prompt:January - Snow Squall Team:Team Bits & Bobs Project Name:My First ever Crewmate Project Link:not yet done Brief Description: My girls got into playing “Among us” since October break with friends. I’ve also joined in at one point, but while Hubby loves it, I find it a bit too fast for my liking. However, I decided to make something small and fast (ish… I watched 2 Episodes of Supernatural while making it) for one of the girls. 2nd Crewmate will be done tonight I think. Project Photo(s):
Prompt: December - Firn Team: Palettable Art Project Name: Lettuce Craft Snail Mail Stamp Project Link:Carved Stamps Brief Description: This was my second stamp ever. I wanted to make something I could use over and over. I plan to put it on all the boxes or cards I send out for LC (if I don’t lose it. It’s so small). Project Photo(s):
Cutting the stencil is pretty easy but painting has to be done extra carefully because of the curve. I put my hat on a mannequin head while I painted it and that helped. Also take frequent pauses to make sure your vinyl is stuck down tight before you paint.
Excellent functional solution to your over-zealous seasoning problem! XD I like that it helps with the holes, and makes stylish labels all at once!
Awww, isn’t it sweet how this site is giving all of us a whole new appreciation for that vegetable! XD Great stamp carving!
The art journal page is really cool. I’m impressed that such seemingly random lines and patterns can look so fresh and intentional.
Wow, look at all that dense stitching on your Northern Lights Hoop! It must have taken a long time. I like the water especially; the different colors really give it a sense of reflection.
That’s a really good idea! We just ran out of tags again and I ended up just using little scraps of leftover wrapping paper, but this looks so much nicer!
This hummingbird is so great! The colors are so cheerful, and all that detail is amazing!
Hahaha, I’ve been playing Among Us on and off lately with various different friend groups, so this really made me smile! It’s such a fun little character! Great job! How big is it btw?
Ooh, another lettuce stamp! This one definitely looks perfect for swaps and cards with crafters!

@geekgirl I love the vibrant colors you chose for your journal pages, and how creative you got with “trash.” That norther lights hoop is amazing! I liked the first one you made, but this one is my favorite! The details in the water and mountains…
@Inselaeffchen I only recently figured out what these crew mates are. I still haven’t played the game, but it sounds fun. I look forward to seeing the second one you made!
@gozer I love your snail mail stamp! It is darling! I see how you carved the stamp, but I just can’t wrap my head around how you actually carved it to make it work. Maybe one day I will try it. I even have cut gloves my hubby ordered that were too small for him. And since I’m so accident prone, the gloves are a must for me!
@roler Last year you began mastering crochet. I can’t wait to see what you accomplish this year with quilting! Your first square looks great, and with your eye for color and patterns, you’re sure to come up with some amazing creations! Your gecko certainly does look like it’s trying to hug me through the computer. So cute!
Prompt: December – Sastrugi Team:Palettable Art Project Name: TM Patch Project Link: Brief Description: I made this for a personal swap. It’s supposed to be a golden snitch from HP. I used metallic felt for the snitch and metallic thread for the wings. The edges have lots of parallel lines and are stripy. Project Photo(s):
Prompt: December – Snow Squall Team:Palettable Art Project Name: Grape Sherbert Project Link: Brief Description: I love grape ice cream. I usually get it at Bruster’s, but this year we didn’t go due to Covid. So, we are attempting to recreate it at home. The first time was a HUGE failure. Huge. It was kind of gross, but I was desperate, so I ate it. This batch turned out much better. It is so yummy! Project Photo(s):
I have been commenting using the links, but here are the comments for those that didn’t have them.
@Lynx2Lancer – The sympathy card is very sweet. Sorry to hear about your loss.
@Bunny1kenobi – The seahorse card is really pretty. I love the way you blended the background. The white bubbles are a great touch and add depth. The hat turned out great and is funny. Clever fix with the S & P shakers!
@geekgirl – I love your art journaling. You are a master at it. You have an eye for colors and image placement. The one with the eyes is amazing. I also love the purple one. I love that it can be so many things. I see a room in a bar. Fantastic!
@Inselaeffchen – The crewmate is cute. I’ve never played the game, but it’s cool that you made something for your girls based on it.
@roler – I didn’t even know there was a quilt-along. That is a great way to motivate yourself to make a quilt! I am currently procrastinating on a quilted ottoman cover. I agree; they are intimidating. Mine’s only been cut out for about a year, so not too shabby. LOL! I can’t wait to see your finished quilt. I love the colors you used on this square.
