Ok. So, I just started a part time job, from like 8-1:30. And I need some breakfast ideas. I want something that will hold me for several hours and will be quick. I like smoothies, with some tofu for extra staying power and bananas and strawberries. I'm not too crazy about eggs, I only really like them scrambled with a bunch of 'stuff' in them. But I'm open to ideas. And I don't want to be eating oatmeal every day, nor do I want to eat pancakes or waffles a lot. And cereal just gets boring really quick, and honestly, it doesn't hold me that long. Any suggestions? I'm really open to anything. It just needs to be quick and has good sticking power. Cause I hate to be hungry like, 2 hours later.
Since it's the Lunar New Year today ((aka: The Chinese New Year)) and it's the Year of the Rabbit, I decided that I was going to crochet myself a rabbit!
So thus, I made Luna!
She's done in Red Heart, white, black and shocking pink. She's done in double crochet. He tail is a cotton ball and her whiskers are mint flavored dental floss. And she's stuffed with tissues, because I don't have stuffing. Guess I could've used cotton balls. Next time I'm using safety eyes. I haven't tried them before, and I think as far as eye placement go, it'd be easier, and it'd save from the awkward looking eyes. Personally, I think she resembles a shrunken Lamb Chop. But still, she was fun!
So, I had plans to make this scarf many months ago, but I couldn't figure out how to change colors properly. But thanks to fantasticmio I learned pretty quickly. But, since I was going to the "Deathly Hallows Part 1" premier last night, I figured that I better finish the scarf and quickly. So in a matter of a couple of days. I had a completed Hufflepuff scarf! And here's the pics! Ignore the tiredness on my face, because I'm completely exhausted. And I'm planning on making a hat on my Knifty Knitters with my leftover yarn. Cause you can't have a scarf without a hat right? So pics, yeah...
Is there a difference between the two? I plan on making a bunch of the Oreo Balls: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=164704.0 for Christmas to send give to friends and family. But I just wonder, if there's a difference between the melting discs and the almond bark, in terms of flavor and consistency. Is one better over the other?
Ok, so today is Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be with You! (Get it?!)) and last year, I celebrated with some fun Star Wars themed food. So I'll share some of those recipes. All the pictures can be found on my food blog, along with all of the recipes. I'll share a couple and then link to my blog so y'all can read the fine details.
So, first up:
Yoda Punch: You Need: Lime Sherbet Lemon Lime Soda Glass
1. Put your sherbet in your glass 2. Pour the soda over your sherbet 3. Enjoy!
Veggie Lightsabers: You Need: Celery Baby Carrots Cream cheese OR sour cream OR your favorite chip dip OR Peanut Butter (Depends on what you like)
1. Rinse your veggies 2. Cut the celery stalks in half 3. Spread on the dip 4. Place carrot inside one half of the celery and place another half ontop of the carrot 5. Make appropriate lightsaber noises and enjoy!
Those are the simplest recipes. I also have recipes Chewbacca Furballs and Princess Leia Pizza Bagel Buns and Death Star Cookies. I hope y'all have just as much fun as I did with these recipes!
So, I had some gold and black yarn to make a Hufflepuff scarf. And I have plenty to do so still. But I decided that I wanted to make a bumblebee out of some of the yarn. So, in about an hour and half's time or so, I had this little guy created. Of course it was about 4 days later when I finally got him all stitched together. I came up with the pattern all on my own. I'm quite proud of him.
And I thought to myself...HOW COOL! I HAVE TO MAKE ONE! Cause I'm a huge Star Wars nerd and everything. Seriously, I am.
So this is my attempt. I didn't want to steal the thunder of her thread with pics of my hat, so I'm making my own thread. Hope that's ok.
So here's my version of my Storm Trooper hat. Just a few more details than gonesmithing's. The mouth piece is slightly off kilter. But never the less, I'm still proud. It's my first attempt at crocheting a hat. And my first attempt at switching colors while crocheting. I'm extremely proud of it! So, here's some pics!
And yes, I have a lightsaber. I told you I was a nerd! XD
