391  DIY Peanut Butter in Recipes and Cooking Tips by lindyv321 on: June 05, 2013 08:55:27 AM
I had no idea how easy it is to make your own peanut butter at home!  We go through A LOT of it at my house and I'm sure will be going through quite a bit more since it's summer time and the kids are going to be eating at home everyday.  I had been trying to only buy natural PB at the store but it's rather expensive and still has lot's of sugar in it.  So I saw somewhere on the web how to make your own at home.  You do need a food processor which I just happened to get for Christmas this year!  Dump in your peanuts.  I used a mix of unsalted and low salt and added just a bit of sugar and turn that sucker on.  At first it looks like it's just chopping the nuts up like this

But keep going and I promise it will all come together! 

I am thinking I should have blended it a bit longer since it was still a bit "gritty" but hey, now I know for next time!

This is the first project I have posted so please let me know if I do something wrong...

June Battle: I chose to go with Romance
Project Geekdom (if any): No particular Geekdom
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: Altered Hanging House Shrine

I participated in a swap from another site and got a free gift for playing.  The gift was this little hanging house shrine.  I went through my stash and decided to whip this up as an extra for my partner in the Shrine Swap.  I haven't sent it to her yet so there is a chance she won't catch it here!  One of the themes she chose was Love, and with all the pink and gold this just screams love and romance to me!

Challenge/Battle/Alert: June Radomizer
Project Geekdom (if any): hmmm I don't think this would fit anywhere

Project Name: Homemade Peanut Butter
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=424316.new#new

I finished my hoop over the weekend and am happy to post it along with all the other gorgeous works!  I love what everyone has come up with but I must say the Bat is my favorite!!!!  

I chose to do a Sugar Skull since I love them.  I got this pattern from Urban Threads and it has been waiting to be stitched up for quite a while now.  I chose this particular pattern because along with the Dia De Los Muertos theme it also has birds which I love!  

I learned the chain stitch for this project and also used a back stitch and a bit of satin stitching.

I am in the club of hates french knots since I have only successfully done them once and have never been able to again.  Maybe if I pick a project that is full of them I will finally get it down.

I can't wait for next months theme!

395  Bee Happy in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: May 10, 2013 01:49:17 PM
I claimed gamemom42 for a Bee Hoopla inspired by one made by the fabulous LimeRiot that she had pinned.  While I used the same technique for applying the "hive" pattern as LimeRiot I didn't want to copy it exactly.  We decided upon a different saying and I used a bee charm in place of the embroidered one.

Here is a link to the inspiration

396  LEGO Mini Fig Hoop in Needlework: Completed Projects by lindyv321 on: May 10, 2013 01:34:39 PM
I created this hoop for texscrapper in the Ongoing Wish Swap.  It seems to have disappeared though  Huh
The tracking shows it as delivered but it's not....

I printed out a LEGO coloring sheet to use as the pattern and attached some real LEGO blocks that my son was nice enough to donate.

I hope it finds it's way to it's new home...

399  Re: Jar of Whimsies Rd 12 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by lindyv321 on: May 07, 2013 08:57:25 AM
I received!!!! I wanted to take more pictures of the goodies but my kids wouldn't let me examine them very well.  They were just as excited to see everything as I was! 

First up the "jar" which is going to be displayed once I sort everything and empty it.

Here it is before I started digging...

Along with the things that didn't fit inside the jar itself

Here are the amazing handmade goodies... Skully magnets and Harry, Ron, and Hermione ornaments!!!!!!

Here are all the bigger whimsies laid out

and everything that was still left in the jar!

Finally here are a few of my favorites

Thank you so my QueenNinjaMonkey!  This was a fabulous swap.

I received the sweetest hoop from gamemom42.  She made me this adorable turtle!  Everyone at work calls Ryan (my bf) turtle for some odd reason and so this has carried over making him MY turtle!  I just love this little guy!  He is so bright and cheerful.

She also threw in a little bottle of whimsies!  I didn't get a picture of the bottle all packed though.

Thank you again!!!
