but it does takes creativity and I need help. <3
I'm going to be a succubus for Halloween this year and I need to do something with my make up.  I want it to be really sexy but a little scary at the same time and my colour pallet is red and black.
Any ideas? <3

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Cartouche on: June 26, 2008 02:18:31 PM
I want to make a present for a friend of mine who really likes ancient Egyptian things, so I decided to make them a cartouche.
I made one out of clay, but i don't like it (it looks too juvenile imo) so does anyone have any other suggestions for what I could use instead of clay?  I'm also pretty poor so if its cheap thats even better!

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Nutella Berry Breakfast "Cake"! on: May 09, 2008 09:54:07 PM
This is something i just made up tonight.  Technically its a breakfast food, but it could also be served as a desert.

This is what you'll need;
A few dozen berries, I used 1 dz strawberries and 1 dz blackberries
2-5 pancakes, I still haven't been able to make a good pancake from scratch so I use "Kodiak Cakes" They're chemical/preservative free, healthy, and really delicious.
Nutella
Soymilk


Here's what you do;
Wash, dry and slice your berries
Cook your pancakes
Mix your nutella and soymilk together to thin the nutella.  Microwave and wisk until smooth. You want about the consistency of thick chocolate syrup. It should be pourable.

Construction;
Lay down 1 pancake, add a thin layer of thinned nutella, add 1 layer of strawberries.
repeat until you have used all your pancakes, then on the last layer add just a layer of thinned nutella "frosting".

Enjoy!








6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Little hoodies on: April 13, 2008 03:37:21 PM
So, I have 3 nieces, and I'm making little critter hoodies for each one of them.  They're all about the same size, and I looked for a pattern for a simple kids hoodie but couldn't find one.  So I went a bought a kids tshirt for a general shape/size/etc thing, but I forgot about the hood and the sleeves.
I was wondering if any of you have little girls that wear xs/s stuff that you could measure for me?  I need hood hight and width as well as sleeve length and height.  Taken flat would be the most useful!

Thanks! Smiley

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Preserving foods! on: March 29, 2008 07:15:05 PM
I work in a French Cafe, and today there was a croissant that looked just like a crab.  I want to preserve it and turn it into a wee flakey, baked version of my crabby french boss.

Any ideas on how to preserve it?
I was thinking liquid latex?

Helps!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Turning a girl tee into something neat for a guy. on: March 22, 2008 01:05:05 AM
So, I have this old tee that I never wear, and its a band shirt of one of my friends favorite bands.
I really want to reconstruct it and give it to my friend, but I have no ideas on what to do.  I don't want to make it girly because my friend is a guy.  This is the graphic on the tee It's on a plain black shirt, with nothing on the back.   I also have a shirt that has "MDFMK" on it, so that could be fun to incorporate that in there some how, too.

I'd love to hear any suggestions or see any drawings :p


Thanks!
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Best damn veggie sandwich. Ever. Blackened Cajun eggplant with asparagus. on: March 20, 2008 11:49:40 PM
I am a HUGE fan of veggie sandwiches.  Even when I ate meat, nothing could top a good veggie sandwich.  I just made this for the first time tonight, and it was a random mashings of all things that I love into a sandwich.  It was so good that my meat loving boyfriend said it was a lvl 85 sandwich.

For two servings You'll Need:
1 large Ciabatta loaf
1 half of a large eggplant
1 half  cucumber
1 bell pepper, your choice of colour, I used red
1 poblano pepper
1 Avocado
1 half a pound of super thin asparagus

Pepperoncini 
Sprouts
Tofutti cream cheese
Cheddar

Cajun seasonings!
Rosemary
Salt
Pepper
Olive oil
Parchment paper

I think that's everything! Hehe.

Take your heaviest skillet and place it over medhigh heat and let it heat up while your washing your veggies.

Wash, peel (where applicable) and chop all your veggies.  I sliced everything going up and down on the veggies, so I had wide, thin slices of eggplant/cucumber/avocado.  Trim and quarter your peppers, and just trim off the tough ends of your asparagus. 

When you have your eggplant sliced take two pieces and liberally season each side with Cajun seasonings.  Add some oil (i prefer olive) to your preheated pan.  Just enough to thinly coat the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking. We're not trying to fry here.  Once the oil starts to shimmer with heat, add your eggplant slices.  Cook it until its squishy and blackened. Yum. :3

In another pan, add a little bit of oil, toss in your preped asparagus and season with a little bit of salt and pepper.  Toss occasionally and cook until slightly tender.

After your eggplant is done, rinse your pan, add a little bit more oil and let it heat.  While its heating, slice your Ciabatta in half, length wise.  Then rub some fresh rosemary on the inside (you can add other fresh herbs at this point if you like).  Leave the sprig of rosemary on the bread and place it face down in the oil.  Cook until toasted, the rosemary should stick to the bread, I left mine there, because fried rosemary is delicious. Smiley

Finally the cooking is done and you can begin assemblage. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on your bread, and add thinly sliced cheddar. The add the eggplant, cucumber slices, avocado slices (you can smear avocado on the bread like a condiment, but I love 'cados, so I slice. Plus the slices act like glue), asparagus, pepper quarters (if you cut them right, they should lay relatively flat), Pepperoncinis, sprouts, and anything else I might have forgotten, but I think I said everything.

Now you should have a sandwich that stands about 6 inches tall and looks damn near impossible to eat.  Smash it down as best as you can without making all the guts go flying out, take a piece of parchment, wrap it up and enjoy. Smiley

I'd love to hear what you guys think if any of you make this!  This is my first recipe post, so I hope I did okay.
Oh, and my camera ran away so sorry, no pix!
