1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / passion fruits on: April 30, 2016 10:10:25 AM
This year, the birds are eating my passion fruit flowers. I was wondering why I saw the flowers and no passion fruits at all. Today, my husband saw one ripping the petals apart. This birds are not easily scared, they don't mind the cat just under them and will leave only if we get really close. Do you have any idea what I can do?
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter eggs or cascarones on: March 28, 2016 01:45:48 AM
I made a bunch of cascarones. At first, I only spray painted them, inside and out. Inside so the crumbled shell doesn't stand out in white amidst the confetti. But I was encouraged to make them look nicer. Some are inspired by the internet and some came entirely from my imagination. My husband painted five of these.Now, they look too nice and the kids are reluctant to break them!

I don't know where to put this.
I can't see the newest pictures  on the home page since a few days. If i click on a " So sorry there was a problem ... image",  then I do see the picture on the project page.
Can you help please?

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tutorial: fabric plumeria flower on: October 07, 2015 02:33:33 PM


Time:
10 minutes- a couple hours waiting time while drying- 10 minutes

Materials needed for one flower:
3'9" white florist wire (thin wire wrapped with paper) - about 9 inches for one petal
a tiny scrap of fabric - about 6 square inches
fabric glue - I used original tacky glue
white stem wrap tape- optional but will look nicer

Tools:
scissors
some plastic to let your flower dry on it

How to:


Cut 5 pieces of 9" wire. Bend in half.


Wrap the middle around two fingers or around a round tube, the 2 fl oz bottle of glue works just fine.


Remove by sliding off. This is what you get.


Shape it like an oval with slightly pointy ends to create the plumeria petals. Keep the shape flat. Make 5 shapes, one for each petal. You could make any shape and flower that way.


Check the shapes are flat and touch the fabric all around the edge. A tiny space between fabric and wire is OK if you fill it with glue.
Apply fabric glue all around the edge. No need to be very neat, the glue will dry clear.
Leave it to dry completely. This might take a couple hours, depending on your weather.
Once dry, cut the fabric around the shape, thus creating a petal.
Bend the petals slightly.


Put the five petals together, overlapping a little. Twist all the wires together or just one around the others, this will create the stem. Arrange the petals evenly to create the flower.
 

Wrap stem wire tape around the stem.

.
Now, you can put it behind your ear and go dance the hula or just enjoy a tropical drink.

I  spray painted the eggs after filling and closing them. Then, I painted them with acrylic.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Giraffe on: April 01, 2015 07:27:00 PM

My daughter dreams of the Giraffe Manor in Africa, where giraffes greats you in the morning by entering through the windows. This is way to expensive for a mere mortal. So, for April fools, I created an 8 feet giraffe to put in her bedroom.

It is not very realistic as it was done in a few hours. It is suspended from the ceiling with fishing line.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Can you help me make homemade sausages? on: January 31, 2015 02:05:19 PM
I tried making some but they were not tasty at all and way to dry. I used some pork that had very little fat so that's likely the cause. I also used artificial casing and it was dry and you could really feel it. We ended up removing it from the cooked sausages to avoid eating it.

Any tips or recipes would be welcome. We don't hunt and there's not much too hunt here except wild pig, so I will have to use meat from the supermarket.
