1  COOKING / Dessert / Dirty Cupcakes! (Definitely NSFW) on: November 23, 2008 10:37:49 AM
I went to a joy-toy party yesterday...
and I thought I'd make some x-rated cupcakes!!!

Marshmallow fondant + food colouring, yellow cake, chocolate shavings and those little pink ball bearings= Delicious edible vaginas.

Some are hairier than others.
They were such a super big hit at the party, I got a lot of squeals.

Thanks to Bunny of Doom for the idea, I only aspire to your mastery of inappropriate baking skills!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Cheap Cabinet Revamp Ideas! on: October 27, 2008 03:56:04 PM
So I may be moving into the apartment below in a month or two, if all goes well.  I am EXTREMELY excited!

The previous owners are quite elderly, and their decorations are not my style whatsoever. I need ideas on how to (cheaply) revamp the kitchen cabinets, as the ones installed right now are my LEAST favourite style of cabinets ever.

Heres an idea of what it looks like now:


I need YOU to post pictures of .......decidedly more awesome kitchen cabinets and kitchen designs! (shouldn't be hard, these are awfulll)
 
I want to start gathering ideas of how i want to FIX these. I am a student, so I'm thinking paint or simple molding, etc.... unfortunately I can't afford to rip them out and get new ones. My style is best described as ....ecclectic.

Others ideas re: walls, backsplash, etc. would be much appreciated!







3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I too, have a robot obsession......bzap bzap! (img heavy) on: May 08, 2008 12:52:30 PM
BZAAAAAPPPP!!!!!!



So this project is a lot of firsts for me....

-first piece of clothing I've ever made myself, (excluding some pyjama pants in like grade four, but my mom did like 90% of those.)
-first attempt at any sort of colour changing in knitting, ever
-first thing that I used my (mostly) brand new  sewing machine on


and I AM SO PROUD OF THIS SWEATER IT'S RIDICULOUS. Like, whoa.
It's not even that flattering, but I have worn it every day since I finished it.

I  must have re-started the intarsia, like 6 times before I got the hang of it.
I like this picture, the loose ends look like lazers.





At first I was knitting with all the balls of yarn attached, but everything was getting REALLY TANGLED, so I devised an ingenious plan involving clothespins!




One finished, one to go....




And here is where I finished it... the first time.  Unfortunately, though you can't see in this picture, it was shaped like an enourmous bell.
Or tent.
Or box.
Anyways, It was likely the most unflattering sweater in the world. Though I LOVED the robots, I hated the fit. I thought about frogging the body and trying again, but that just seemed like so much work.

So I just threw it to the back corner of my closet, and cried a bit. You know.


Anyways, fast forward to me finding the exact sewing machine that I'd been drooling over, on craigslist for half the price....

So I decided that maybe I could salvage the sweater, and turn it into something like a Cowichan sweater? Outerwear, with a zipper.

 I was a bit scared to cut the sweater to sew the zipper in, so I was extra careful... I basted it, then handstiched the zippers on, then sewed them over twice with the sewing machine, THEN cut the sweater. I cut a HUGE upside down V of fabric out of the middle.



anywhoo, now with Zipper!



After blocking and drying, I wore it out. And discovered that when I wear a messenger bag and a boat-necked shirt or tank top underneath (which is often), the coarse wool pressed into my shoulder and was extremely irritating. Sooooo, I sewed a lining into it.  I had to handstitch it in, so don't look to close, I'm not known for neatness.

The front is half-lined, like this (I didn't want it to be TOO hot) a
and the back is fully lined,
and the sleeves are unlined.




ACTION SHOTS! excuse how many there are, and the lovely faces I am making in them.... did I mention how much  I love this sweater?








I think i might add pockets next........ Smiley
