11  COOKING / Dessert / Pretty Blue Swirly Wedding cake, and my first decorated cake! (Cupcakes, too!) on: June 21, 2009 04:20:52 PM
So, I like to bake at home a lot, and sometimes I bake at the restaurant that I work at. A guy that I work with asked me if I wanted to make a wedding cake for him, and we decided to do a little cake for the bride and groom and then cupcakes for the guests!

There were 3 different kinds of cupcakes, White cake with chocolate butter cream, Milk Chocolate cake with Almond butter cream, and some vegan carrot cake with orange glaze.




All packed up and ready to go!


THE CAKE! It is white cake with almond buttercream (I used some dissaronno to flavor the buttercream... OMG SOOO GOOD. I drank the left over!)


(Sorry about the mess - things were a little hectic in trying to get things out the door)


I'm pretty dern tootin' proud of it! There are a few things that went wrong, but over all I'm pretty pleased, and I hope the wedding party and the guests are too!
12  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / White Rabbit Tea Cup on: June 19, 2009 03:23:03 PM
This is one of my favorite projects I've ever done! I made it for my partner in the Alice in Wonderland swap, and it took FOREVER. I just painted it at one of those paint your own pottery places, but I'm really proud of it none the less. I hope you enjoy it! I've been meaning to go back and make one for me, too!

Here is a close up of the saucer (Crap, it's sideways... just tilt your head the to left... )


It has an oversized tea cup!


You can't see it, but I painted a little heart all the way at the bottom on the inside of the cup Smiley


Thank you for looking!
13  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Old Stencil Dump on: June 19, 2009 03:12:36 PM
I was going through some old photos and found pics of things I've done for swaps in the past that I'd like to show off to you all!

POWERED BY TOFU - I made this stencil for an apron for Lizi, my partner for the scrapbook cookbook swap (she's a vegan Wink )


GRRr ARRG - I angeled for goldfish girl in the whedonverse swap, so of course I had to make a grr arrg shirt - my photos are sort of bad, but there are a total of 3 monsters that wrap around the side of the shirt, and the words are on the back




LETS BE BAD GUYS - also from the whedonverse swap!


None of these are made with freezer paper, because it's not sold here. I've tried a few different mediums, but I've found that the paper that hanging files are made out of seem to work ok, and last longer than one use.

Thanks for look! C&C welcome, of course
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Quilting Fabric for Clothes? on: April 20, 2009 09:24:41 PM
I admit, I still know very little about sewing, but when I knew even less, I went out and bought a bunch of patterned quilting fabric cause I thought it was pretty. I don't know how to quilt, and I don't know if it's an appropriate fabric for clothing. Any thoughts on how I can use it, or what kind of clothing I could make?
15  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Help! Is this SAFE? on: November 19, 2008 12:40:14 PM
Is it safe to paint my coffee pot with acrylic paint? Obviously I wouldn't put it anywhere where anything I'm going to consume goes, but the outside part?
16  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Chocolate in an entree? on: September 10, 2008 09:56:21 PM
I've been thinking about anything savory I can make with chocolate, but I can't think of anything other than mole?


Any ideas?
17  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Black Dark Knight Pizza Box from Domino's on: September 08, 2008 09:00:58 PM
I ordered Domino's pizza just to get this amazing Batman pizza box, but now I don't know what to do with it.

Any ideas?
18  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / I LOVE CRAFTSTER! Noob on: September 03, 2008 12:45:07 PM
Be prepared for an all too long introduction!

I'm a pretty anti-social college student in New Mexico. I find that going out to "college parties" or crazy clubs and all that just isn't my scene anymore, especially with all of the possibilities of getting a "Contributing to a minor" citation just by hanging out at someone's house. I much prefer to hang out with a small social group, cook dinner, tell stories, sew pillows, watch a movie, drink tea, etc. Unfortunately most of the people I know here don't share my same sentiments, and consider all this "boring" or "frumpy", neither of which I am.

But at craftster, I feel like you all understand how fun and exciting, and mostly rewarding, it is to create things from scratch and share them with others who enjoy it. It's not "boring", "frumpy", or "old" - it's liberating and affirmative and empowering!!! I so greatly appreciate all of you here who can get excited about perfect pintucks and perls, adorable afghans and amigurumi, and the wabi-sabi perfection that is creating something all your own. I have gained so much inspiration here, and am going to continue my "little Betty Crocker" ways (as my co-workers call it), and craft 'til the cows come home.

So here's to you crafsters! *clink* Keep on keeping on! I am so happy to be joining your community!

Thoughts?

Ok, so I was cruisin' around walmart today, and what did I see? BATMAN FABRIC! So I bought some of it,because I love Batman. And then I was like - what the heck did I buy this for?! What could I possibly make?

1. Fleece
2. Cartoony
3. Garish in only the way licensed fleece can be
4. BUT STILL AWESOMELY BATMAN!

I tried to find a few pics, but no exact matches, but here is something close (but mine is a truer blue):
