1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hostess Gifts on: April 11, 2014 01:29:33 PM
Needed two gifts for friends who have invited us for meals during Passover. So for under $15.00 I made these two packages.

Got plain wooden and resin cooking tools and painted them in three colors (red for meat, blue for dairy and green for parve). Then took plain burlap canvases and painted the surname initial with a stripe and embellished it with a flower. Wrapped them in a new dish towel tied with a bow and card and done.








Now all they need are pretty gift bags. Smiley Thank you for checking them out.

Saw this on Pinterest and wanted to give it a try.

This is my interpretation:


Here is the back, which I think is pretty also.


Was certainly a first for making jewelry with peanuts, but not the last. Think nuts are a highly underrated medium. Smiley
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Circus Peanut Card Stamping on: April 01, 2014 05:18:49 AM
Wanted to make a cute fun card for my husband, and had inspiration strike when I saw these classic candies on sale! Circus Peanuts (The Greatest Treat on Earth)! Who does not love a good orange peanut now and again?  Smiley



So here are the supplies you will need for our easy card of lurve!

1 orange peanut
adhesive
paper
letters or stamps
nail file
google eyes

After you make the paper card the size you want, get ready with your peanut. They have a dip on the bottom so you will need to file it flat to use for stamping.


Once flat get your ink pad and cover the bottom carefully but well.

Press one impression onto the cover of the card. Place your google eyes and draw on a mouth. Then add lettering, either by cut out or stamping.


Then add your lettering on the inside, sign and put in an envelope!


Then have more circus fun with a photo shoot with the rest of your orange goodness, before you devour them. Smiley Elephant Ballerina courtesy of rackycoo.

Been trying to branch out in other areas of crafting lately.

This is an inspiration gotten from Pinterest:

Painting peanuts gold and hanging them on chains is so chic! My interpretation is here:


Peanut jewelry is quite addicting! Smiley
7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Crispy Potato Roast: Bais Yaakov Cookbook on: March 28, 2014 08:01:42 AM
Got this recipe from the Bais Yaakov Cookbook, and it is a nice alternative potato side recipe. Plus it is yummy and easy. The whole cookbook is incredible so far.


Crispy Potato Roast
Ingredients:
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
Kosher salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
1/2 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)->but not for me
4 pounds yukon gold potatoes, left mine unpeeled
4 shallots, peeled (can use onion)
8 sprigs thyme (can use dried thyme)


Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. With a sharp knife or a mandolin, slice potatoes very thinly. Place about a tablespoon of olive oil on the bottom of a 9-inch oven-to-table dish and spread it out evenly. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Arrange your potato slices vertically on the dish (so the edges, not the flat sides, are up).  Thinly slice the shallots with a sharp knife or a mandolin. Place a slice of shallots between slices of potato. Brush the remaining 5 tablespoons oil. Generously season with salt and peppers, thyme and red pepper. Bake for 1 1/2 hours, uncovered. Cover with foil and bake another 30-35 minutes, until tops are crispy. Serve hot, and enjoy!



Thanks for checking it out! Smiley
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Polymer Clay Druzy! Link To Tutorial on: March 28, 2014 07:50:34 AM
Saw this on Pinterest and because pinkleo has started this great thread, Craftster vs. Pin Craftalong, decided to give this pin a try.

The tutorial is easy to follow. Had some trial and error, but for the most part by the third try I figured it out.

Here is the finished necklace.




Here are the other ones which were not as successful.


Thanks for checking it out! Smiley

Found this huge bag of tinted craft shells, and grabbed them for a mosaic project. Still have lots left over, so decided to make some jewelry.

10  COOKING / Dessert / Hamentashen: Purim Cookies on: March 13, 2014 07:31:52 AM
Purim is this Sunday so it was time to make some Hamentashen (fruit-filled triangular cookies) for our friends.



There are many, many recipes out there for making these yummy cookies, but here is the one I used for these.
Hamentashen:
Dough
    cup shortening
    1 cup honey
    4 eggs
    4 cups flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
Sift all dry ingredients together. Make a well in center and put all other ingredients in. Mix by hand or with mixer till dough forms. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out dough to 1/8th inch and use a glass to cut out cookies.


Place cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets. Place tsp. of your favorite dried fruit or preserves. This time I used cherry and strawberry preserves. Pinch 3 corners.


Bake for 20 minutes in 350 degree oven. Cool and eat!

Freilichen Purim! Grin
