For Purim this year my little GS asked me to make him an Angry Bird costume to wear around my house when he comes.

And the little guy wearing it:

And simply cause I love the little bugger:

Thank you sweet for posing for your GM.

I found the tutorial at:

12  Crafting my Daughters' Wedding in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 30, 2012 02:00:22 AM
When my daughter got married she didn't want any DIY because of time, effort, the scale of the wedding (over 350 guests) and so forth. Of course, I was dying to do just anything for my little girls wedding...so almost at the last minute things started "popping" up like....
She decided on having the nieces being flower girls which means flower baskets.
I ran to town and bought 3 baskets 2 days before the wedding(she couldn't find nor had the time.lol)  Then decorated them. I sent poor hubby to hand pick the flowers....white and purple ( her wedding colors) in the early hours of the morning.
Here is what I came up with.

Everything came from my stash! Lucky!

I also got to make a ring bearer pillow. Here is what I came up with:
I looked for something of my Mothers and found her silk dressing gown. Perfect.

Measure twice, cut once;

This is what I made from it:

But noooooo. Little darlin' forgot to tell me that there is an exchange of rings, so....

So now she could pick from two.

We also made a DIY Chuppah sending squares to family members to personalize. (MIL's idea) Cool idea and a lot of work but what to do with it after? Who want's a quilt with glitter on it? I loved the idea though!!!
Hope you enjoyed seeing a little of my daughters wedding. Thank you for looking. (and reading this far down.)

13  Re: Bananas Foster Truffles in Dessert by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 14, 2012 09:34:49 AM
I finally tried this and it came out great. Incredibly great in fact. Sadly, I only got pictures of the truffles in the molds. I made them for a gathering but they were gone in under two minutes of me putting them on the table. So I didn't even have time to put them down and turn on my camera.  I guess that qualifies as a very good recipe! Thank you again for sharing.

I just found the only picture that I got of these great truffles! Again, thanks!

14  New Scissor Carousel (dust) Cover and how I did it! in Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: January 14, 2012 05:12:39 AM
I have a small "built-on" craft room that has very thin walls that allows the dust to continually settle down on everything in there. Therefore, it's time I made some changes. I decided to make a dust cover for my scissor carousel.

And this is how I made it:
Trace circle from the base of the carousel.

Add about a centimeter on all sides. (Use new pattern weights  Roll Eyes)

Not shown:
Cut out circle and place over carousel to make sure it fits. Cut out a long piece of whatever you're using Height x circumference. Add on a bit to the length. Sew circle to length of fabric then sew the end. I used a 5 thread overlock. Done. Hard part over.
Place sewn cover on carousel to check that it fits.

Now take thin wire. I have no idea how thick it is. I just took it from my stash.

Put the wire inside of cover to make a ring. Overlap a bit for stability.

Check again!!!

 Now place cover over carousel to see if it works out and everything is in place.

Everything look ok? Wire? Stitches? Length? Make double sure! (Measure twice cut once!)

Now take some really thin wire (more stash stuff) and wrap thicker wire to add to stability.

Insert round ring into top of cover and push in til it's straight all around. Make sure it is in tight.

As you can see, the wire wasn't in snuggly enough so I worked on it more til I was satisfied.

You want to check the top and sides.

Now go find a place for it. (But before that I'll give it another cleaning in the hopes that I won't need to wash it down every few weeks.)
That's my new dust cover. It took me less than an hour including rummaging and figuring out measurements. Hope this helps someone. And I do believe that this is actually my first tutorial. Please be gentle.

C &C Always welcome. Thank you for reading this.

15  Totally inspired Pattern Weights in Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: January 10, 2012 12:19:54 AM
This project was totally inspired by TheMistressT and her pattern weights found here...
I cut most of my patterns from thick clear plastic from a large roll of plastic so the pieces have a tendency  to curl.  So when I saw TheMistressT's pattern weights I knew this is what I need to keep my patterns in place and to keep them straight. Of course I had to complicate things. I wanted a pyramid shaped weight. On to the pics:

I used an old cookie tin to hold them in (Thanks TMT) and since I don't have any nice paper or stickers I'll just use the nice tin.

Here they all are with the proto type I made.
And a fancy picture just cause I like the weights so much.

Again, thank you TMT. Now to start using them.
Hope you like.

16  Re: Chuppah Help in Weddings and Bridal Showers by Jinjeet Phoenix on: November 25, 2011 10:33:28 AM
I wanted to share the Chuppa we made for one of my kids. It is welded (hope that's spelt right) we used metal pipes and just stuck them into the ground. The top part is a square with little pieces of metal that fits into the four poles (that go into the ground) We then took meters of fabric obtained from a fabric factory and just wrapped the poles and the top. Sounds difficult but was very easy.  After the wedding we simply left the Chuppa for anyone that wanted to use it and it's been used many a time since then. Here's what we did:

Hope this helps. At my DD wedding the Chuppa was a little different and I sewed the middle part of the Chuppa. We handed out squares of fabric to family members and they "crafted" the square and I sewed them all together to form the "roof" of the Chuppa...just another option.

17  Re: Mmmmm Banana Bars in Dessert by Jinjeet Phoenix on: December 09, 2010 07:41:57 AM
Thank you so much for the recipe. I made it this morning and it tastes great.
It came out kind of thin with my jelly roll pan (Maybe too big a pan) The milk didn't curdle with the vinegar. I used three bananas cause mine were so small. The first bite was an explosion of banana taste. It's great. I didn't make any frosting. It is so sweet that it doesn't need any. Thanks for sharing. I'll be making this again. (Probaby tomorrow.lol kids are coming.)

18  Re: what to do with tons of kiwi fruit? in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Jinjeet Phoenix on: December 06, 2010 07:26:55 AM
Lol. Glad you are reaping the good things from the kiwi and not caught a cold.
The cake I wrote about takes minutes to make and can be ready in an hour if you are in a hurry. Just put the crust in the freezer til you're ready to pour the cheese in then put it all in the freezer for about an hour til it holds its shape.
Here is a picture of the cake before I add any fruit or decoration on it:

Thank you again Sweets! Thanksgiving was at my house this year and your recipe will now be a forever one!!! I took a quick picture before my BFF carved it.

Pathetic looking turkey but it came out delicious. (I used a huge amount of white wine inside before I stuffed it. lol. Came out great)
Thank you!

20  Re: Make Your Own Vanilla Extract *UPDATE* in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Jinjeet Phoenix on: December 06, 2010 12:34:32 AM
I finally made my first batch. I've had this bookmarked since you first posted. I never did find cheap bottles so I used a used bottle and made a cups worth. Beans are so expensive here that I'm hoping this comes out okay. (Third bottle of Vodka...wonder where the other two went since hubby and I don't drink it.)
Here goes, we'll see next month. Thank you for posting this.

3 days and already the vodka is turning brown. Can't wait.
