We've got several new events, both official and community, ranging from household mobs skins to a spring building competition! The blog section was on fire this week, as several members published their artworks. We feature a few of those pieces as well as a beautiful organic build, a couple of cool skins, a super cool tutorial for an underground bunker, a pack with both Bedrock and Java edition, and more!


THIS WEEK we launched a 1 week long Mob Skinning Event, Household Items! We're having so much fun watching your entries come in. So far we've seen several varieties of toasters, coffee tables, ovens, glue sticks, aquariums, vacuums, clocks, lamps and more!

Questions? Comments? Ask or tell on official Household Items community event thread!

Deadline: April 1 (next Wednesday).

Saturday we hosted a community movie Night featuring the full length feature film Cyprezz by StingrayProductions! The movie was suspenseful with twists, turns, and surprises! If you missed this one, don't fret! We will be hosting another fairly soon! Those who participated in Movie Night received the following badge, courtesy of DinowCookie!

This challenge by CaraRose involves opening Minecraft and posting a pitcure of what the yellow text says! So far we see: "Don't touch your face", "Cough or sneeze into your elbow", and "Save the world - stay inside!". Given current circumstances, this is all advice we should all be listening to and practicing. What does yours say?

This toadstool skin by jellyfish is absolutely adorable! The earthy tones and the style of the beanie and backpack make a fantastic fungi!

MythicalJay_24's Pheonix skin submission this week is inspired Nighthearted, who recommended them do a bird skin months ago. The Pheonix skin features golden yellow feathers and a pointy gray beak. It's also an entry for ElvenJedi's Mythical Contest - The entry states:

"Phoenix could have been the ancient predecessor of the jay and therefore a mythical jay "

Fun Fact: the Pheonix also symbolizes renewal and resurrection!

About one year ago, legopitstop and Sir_Craftypants created a pack that adds "Lots More Food" to Minecraft Java. This week, they published the Bedrock Edition of their pack! Woo! The pack adds 50+ new food items and also includes the MorePlants pack to get the food. Satisfy that sweet tooth with donuts and icecream, or cook yourself a sunny side up egg and toast for breakfast! Multiplayer and Singleplayer friendly :)

DinowCookie submitted 14 of her Build Battle Designs this week! All of the designs were created while playing Build Battle (solo mode) on Hypixel, so they each follow a building prompt from the game. She re-built them in a singleplayer creative world so she could share! You can download and climb on a bunny, burger, popocorn, a giraffe or superman!

She also made another submission that includes another 10 Build Battle Builds! This collection includes a Donut, Treasure, Cherries, and a bell (just to name a few!)

Team Pamplemousse made their first submission in 6 months with this beautiful masterpiece called "The Aquatic Hunter". The original organic features lovely lilly pads, and a blue fierce wolf hunting a yellow frog with black spots. A remarkable project! Render by wazerfighter!

We saw some beautiful art in the blog section this week! -Evie shared with us some of her digital art of her OC as well as watercolor attempts, pencil drawings of mermaids and more! It's her second blog submission, the last one being 2 years ago!

We particularly loved the spring vibes from the piece to the right, with the light greens, sherbert oranges and blush pinks. The red robin and floral garland especially gives us the spring feel!
-Rae- published a photo on their wall of a physical art piece they made featuring different textures: we love the use of buttons, newspaper and cardboard scraps! They all work seamlessly together to create an uplifting, unique piece!

Below are portraits made by Etqtay, who published them in an Art Blog. We love the variety of work's shes' published, including the oriental portrait she titled "Chinese New Years". Her persona piece is full of color and character, with heart shaped barrettes, skulls, harts, and cat ears!

This week's featured YouTuber is SheepGG! Their account was established in January of this year and features several minecraft building tutorials including how to build a boat, car build hacks and ideas, how to build an ultimate oak survival farm, and many more!

What we love most about their tutorials is the presentation. They show you the materials and amount you'll need prior to tackling the project and the blue print. The music is quite lovely as well.

In their most recent tutorial, they show you how to construct THE ultimate underground base! The result is a massive bunker with a roof of oak slab and campfire, an underground farm with a glass ceiling for sun exposure! The bunker can accommodate not only your family, but your friends as there are multiple rooms, beds, chests and stoves to suffice!


You can now share palettes via the 'Share Palette' dropdown item! It will give you a URL you can use to share a palette with others. If you click one, you will have a temporary palette for as long as you keep using that URL. You can save the palette to your list via the Save Imported Palette dropdown item.

ZombieVillagerYT created a showcase video of Top Notch's free Elves skin pack! The free skin pack contains 14 different elf skins with 7 different elven races including Aquatic, Dark, Forest, High, Sun, Moon and snow!

Team Top Notch currently has 4 free skin packs available. In addition to their Elves Skin Pack, the following are also free to use:

Village and Pillage
Knights of the Round Table
Baroque Skin Collaboration

Take a Walk on the Lava Pond - Snapshot 20w13a is out!
Shireen's snapshot video goes over most of the new features including the new lodestone block and the new mob, strider! She shows you how to attract the new mob and ride it through lava!

Coughing & sneezing into your elbow doesn't help because it extends the possibility of physical contact being more infectious. Instead cough into a tissue, or a napkin because the virus could now be easily disposed, & as an added bonus it makes you look less disgusting... maybe the added bonus is a little harsh, but I can't help it.

There's only one logical choice in the poll, 'Stay at Home' doing so and isolating is the only way to stop the spread and protect yourselves. I've isolated for the last 3 weeks, only went out twice, once to the chemist, once to the supermarket, wore gloves and mask.
