This is not a process I know much about (or that I even want to try) but I am fascinated by process. This is incredible! Thank you so much for sharing how you made this remarkable image in clay.

schnerby I just love that you not only have boards for things you love but also boards for stuff that is "Totally not my style" and "Colours I avoid"! Brilliant! Is it awkward when people who's style you admire repin from those boards as something they love or want?

Well, they don't really get pinned to anymore so they don't show up on other people's walls when they follow me. I'm not sure that makes ANY sense Smiley
Short answer: It's never happened so I don't know.

Ignorant design and layout question - I'm not entirely sure what is meant.

Would this include something along the lines of coming up with an artwork design that my daughter could insert into flyers advertising her high school guitar club events? She is the vice president this year and I am sure she would love something combining her school mascot (an eagle) with a guitar. Or do you mean something more along the lines of me giving you all the info for an event and you would design a poster and postcards that you send electronically and I forward over to a print shop to get it printed out in poster size and postcard size to distribute?

Or is this more of a service for something like a crafter with a table at craft fairs to create a brochure of their offerings or print a brochure they already have designed? Or something where you would take their logo and information to print out pads of invoices?

Please let us know so we can tailor our wish lists

Either! A little illustration or a design project like a flyer you could then send to get printed would work. Just as long as you're not a boring corporate band that is going to kill my mind.  Grin

I claim zombiecazz for wall art/inspired by Pinterest Smiley

This is my first claim 1/0/0

Hi my name is Linda and I am in my 20s and I live in Australia.

I am a bit coy about personal information posted publically as I am a secondary school teacher.  Feel free to ask if you need to know any details I will PM. I studied fine art at university and used to be a journalist.

I love art and design, martial arts (karate), reading, cooking (vegetarian), outdoors and gardening, being unusually clean at home, organization and quirky things. I have no pets or kids and I dont smoke.  My house is small and new so Im still fitting it out a bit. My brother is also in the same boat, so I can also use home-related gifts for him.

I love things which are functional, can be put on the wall or which dont need to be put on a shelf. I dont have a great deal of shelf space for knick knacks so theyre not really my kind of thing. I always paint my nails and have an offbeat dress sense. I dont scrapbook. Love to travel.

Tattoo flash is some of my favourite imagery. My favourite tattoo artists are Sasha Unisex, Tilly Dee, Ben Koopman, Brad Hampstead, Mimsy Gleeson and Clare Clarity.  I also love geometric designs, lino print style imagery and most other visual art.

I dont like girly, pink, floral (unless its a bit funky), ruffles, lace and other cutesy things. Its just not me. Im also not into creepy-cute, dandelions and clich images like the infinity symbol. Orange is my enemy.  Also not into patriotism. Glitter does not make me happy. Not into dolls (especially those Blythe dolls and other cutesy things like that).

I love dark colours, geometrics, turquoise, green, blue, black and white, deep purple, silver, black, grey, blue and deep red.


Things I would love to receive:
-   Wall art. I love receiving other peoples art. Painting, embroidery, printmaking, photography whatever! I have some beautiful art on my walls from Craftster swaps and I have plenty of wall space left. Any size and any media.

-   Fabric boxes for storage or organisation. Any size
-   Coasters. Seriously, why dont I have any of these?
-   A centre mat or table runner for my table. Measurements can be provided (its a four person table so its pretty small). I have red cushions on the chairs.
-   Table cloth
-       Cushions or cushion covers for my new chairs. My lounge room is decorated in bold black and white prints and red. I'd prefer texture, black and white design or something similar. Not furry.
-   Tea towels. Any colour
-   Hand towels (neutral earth colours and olive greens)
-   Heat pack for the microwave
-   PJ pants. Cotton, flannelette, some other fabric, summer/winter, just over the knee/three-quarter/full length. Whatever! I love them.
-   Scented candles
-   Mug-rug style or fabric box things for my bedside table to put little bits in
-   Tea and tea related stuff.
-   Hoopla
-   A reasonably padded case for my Macbook Air
-   Cards blank multipurpose preferred. Not too much pizzazz or sparkly business ☺
-   Something to organise my newly acquired desk. Its just a plain 60s table so I need a mouse pad, things to put pencils in, things for papers. Absolute blank canvas so far!
-   Gift tags simple and plain decoration please
-   Simple stamp to make easy gift tags (perhaps to stamp on thin recycled card and cut out that way I have plenty)
-   Organiser to hang from the hanging rail in a wardrobe. I have lots of wardrobe space but I cant use it all for general storage without hanging organisers
-   A simple bill and paper organiser for the bills to be paid. Something I can hang up on a small hook
-   Prayer flags
-   Picture frame. Plain, textured, whatever. All the frames in my house are black so far so I guess stay with that. I stick them on the wall with removable Velcro stickers or removable sticker hooks.
-   Unpaper towels or any other things to save waste and love the planet
-   Sturdy shopping bag (you can never have too many in the car)
-   Those reusable netting bags for veggies so I dont have to use plastic when I shop
-   Simple Christmas decorations. I have very few other than a stocking
-   Things for assisting with or making pretty in the garden. I have a watersaving native garden and veggies/herbs
-   Slippers or house shoes. Feet sz AUS9-10/EU40-41
-      Recipe organiser
-      First aid kit container thing for the house or car. I'm ashamed to say I don't have either so I just have bandaids loose in the cupboard.

Or, something inspired by my Pinterest ☺

I use business cards and those free postcards many places have to teach design. If you have any cards lying about I would love to adopt a few.

Thanks! I can't wait  Smiley

EDIT: Just in case anyone is interested, happy to do some design as a swap. Maybe you need some invitations, cards, business stuff, typography or something similar done. I don't work in design and layout anymore so I do enjoy a task from time to time. If it's on your list, I will be keen to claim Smiley

I'm just about to get back into swapping after a long hiatus. This seems exciting as I can pick what suits and I know I can make.

I haven't been on Craftster for months (busy!) but what a lovely welcome back to see this. Smiley Thanks!

Sorry... I no longer have the chart for this because of a computer crash Sad
It should be easy enough to make a chart with Excel/Illustrator/graph paper from this picture, though.
9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Herby onion bread on: March 09, 2014 11:04:41 PM
And the secret to shuny, golden bread is to brush with egg once you shape the dough. Let it soak in and then brush again just before baking. Shiny and tasty without a super thick crust.
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Herby onion bread on: March 09, 2014 11:02:00 PM
This stuff is yummy!

1 packet dried yeast (I think they're 7 grams each)
2 cups plain flour
3/4 cup warm water
1 tsp sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups grated tasty cheese (or less than this with a little parmesan on top)
6 tablespoons of chopped herbs. I use all flat leaf parsley but basil would work as well. Olives maybe too)
1 egg
Half a Spanish onion, sliced finely and soaked in lemon juice for an hour. Skip the soaking if you like a sharper onion flavour.
2 tbsp olive oil
Milk or egg wash

Put one cup of flour, the water, sugar and yeast into a bowl. Mix to a thick paste and leave (covered with cling film) for 30 mins. It will go fluffy.

Add the other cup of flour, cheese, salt, herbs, onion, egg and oil to the paste and stir. I do this step in a mixer with the dough hooks on. You could knead by hand. It takes about 10 minutes to knead, adding a little flour when it becomes sticky.

Put the dough in an oiled bowl and leave for 15 minutes covered in cling wrap. Dough should rise and double. Punch it down and knead lightly.

Shape the dough however you like. I braid it like a round challah, but you could do a loaf, pull-apart balls or plait it. Cover with wrap and leave for 10 minutes.

(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7D8PSBsy1M) - Challah shaping video

Brush with egg or milk wash (parmesan if you like) and bake for ~30 minutes at 190oC fan forced. A little longer if you don't have the fan. It should sound hollow when tapped.

Eat warm or cold - just keep away from hungry hands who tend to burn themselves on the hot loaf.  Cheesy

This is my challah baked at the same time. One of the three is a bit misshapen  Grin

And everything uncooked.
