11  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Gluten Free Banana Muffins on: September 16, 2013 11:43:27 AM

Vegan Gluten Free Banana Muffins

2 1/2 cups brown rice flour
1 1/2 cups tapioca flour
4 tablespoons flax seed meal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
 3 bananas, mashed
 2 cups almond milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare muffin pans with cupcake papers or nonstick spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together first 7 ingredients. In a smaller bowl mix remaining ingredients and then pour into large bowl, and mix until well incorporated. Spoon approx. 1/4 cup of batter into each muffin cup. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

It's lovely if there's places where the brown sugar didn't fully incorporate into the muffin, because it creates pockets of caramel. So don't worry if your brown sugar is a bit clumpy.

14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Peppermint~ A Christmas Elf on: September 14, 2013 06:02:40 PM
I have always have been fascinated with dolls with darker skin tones. When shading with the pencil, you actually have to work backwards and put in the highlights and then add all of those colors that the eye can see, but can only detect as colors when you are trained as an artist. I used blues and purples on Peppermint's face. He's made with the same pattern as the other elf dolls I've made recently.

His hair is a cap of crocheted yarn that has been combed out.

15  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Weeping Angel on: September 12, 2013 05:10:48 PM
My family LOVE the Dr Who series. My husband watched when it first came out and then was pleased to discover that BBC started making episodes again. He was delighted to introduce our family to the Doctor. When I first started making dolls, it was to make characters from  the series for my children, because action figures were too expensive and not really for play. I feel as though I've come full circle making this doll.
It was a bit monotonous using the same fabric for the entire thing. It's not a very happy color. But I love how she turned out in the end. I have to tell myself every time I make a doll, to trust the process, because every one goes through an ugly stage.

For this doll I started off with a cone shape to which I added the torso. The head is similar to the 4 piece head in the poppet pattern. Her wings are quilted and then shaded with a graphite pencil. Her hair is tubes of fabric with pipe cleaners that have been inserted and twisted to resemble curls, and the hand tacked to the head. Her dress was put on and tacked in places to fix the folds in place. Then her arms were sewn to her body using a ladder stitch. She stands 9 inches tall.
16  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lebkuchen an elf on the shelf cloth doll on: September 04, 2013 02:20:25 PM
Lebkuchen is a traditional ginger cookie made in Germany. Named for the cookie because of her ginger hair, she is sure to bring some spice and sweetness to any house this Christmas!

 This doll is made from an original pattern with needle sculpted features that are then shaded with colored pencil and then painted with acrylic paints.

 Her hair is wefted between two pieced of paper on the sewing machine and then combed to make it fuzzy.

She sits 9" tall.
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Schneien a Winter Elf on: August 29, 2013 05:56:23 PM
Meet Schneien. His name means "snow" in German. He is a winter elf, and spreads winter cheer wherever he goes. The cold doesn't bother him because he has such a warm heart.

 Schneien is about 10 inches tall (not including his hair) seated. He's made from cotton fabrics, and polyester yarn which was combed out and styled for his hair. His face is needle sculpted, and then colored with colored pencils and with acrylic paints, and then sprayed with hairspray to fix the color. His hair was also styled with hairspray and then dusted with glitter.
He's made from my own pattern but could easily be reproduced using the poppet pattern and needle sculpting the face.

He is the first of a series of elves that I will be making this year.
18  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Striped high waisted skirt on: June 25, 2013 12:02:02 PM

I was so worried that if I made this skirt that it was going to look like a circus tent on me, but I took a gamble and did it anyway. The first time I'd seen it was in the airport on a slim girl, and I loved it. The a curvy model wore it on her blog, and I just needed to make it. The full tutorial is on my blog.

20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Snow White and Rose Red illustrations on: May 04, 2013 08:06:49 PM
We use dto have red and white towels in my bathroom. So when my husband would give our girls a bath, he'd ask, "who wants to be Snow White, and who wants to be Rose Red?" Then he'd wrap the girls in the towels and they'd climb on to his back to be taken to their room to get dressed. Of course their dad was the Prince Bear. I don't think the girls have ever had the story read to them, so I thought it would be fun to make their very own book. This project is taking longer than I'd anticipated. Some of these drawings have taken me about 10 hours to complete. They are prismacolor colored pencil on copy 8.5"x11" copy paper. The book, when finished will be for my two girls, ages 6 and 4.

There are several more illustrations to come. I have to construct them. Hopefully I'll have this project finished by Christmas. And then I wonder what other story I can illustrate.
