i've been wanting todo this but i thought they'd look silly, but wow, yours are AWESOME! maybe i'll try now...
You should definitely try!

Get those cards to a laminating machine... quick!  I look at those and the first thing that comes to mind is that you could make friends and family very personalized decks of cards for gifts.  You know, like the face cards could be in baseball uniforms for a fella that's crazy about the sport, your crafty friend may need a set where the symbols ( pictures that count out the number?) would be little balls of yarn.... think about it !  I wish I had art skills!
I was just thinking about checking the library today for a laminating machine. Fortunately, the paper is thick, so so far they're standing up to all the shuffling pretty well.
And those ideas are awesome, thanks! I'm thinking of making a transformation deck, and maybe I could make a video-game related one for my boyfriend.

Cool! I love the way you say the drawing & colouring was half hearted, but they look really good, and you did make 52 of them!
Thanks! I thought I should center and measure out everything, but then I just couldn't be bothered. I suppose lopsided eyes and such don't really matter as long as I can play some gin rummy.

About two days ago, I decided I felt like playing cards, but couldn't find any at the store. So I started on making my own, which took a while because I am lazy and put off things, and I only had four markers to use (black, red, green, and a crappy blue) but I finally finished today. Observe!

Clubs:






Diamonds:






Spades:







Hearts:







The clothes of the jacks-queens-kings are very vaguely modeled off of some that I saw in a tarot deck example on Wikipedia. I have to admit, sometimes the drawing and colouring was fairly half-hearted, but they're just for me and my boyfriend, mostly, and they worked well enough when we used them. Smiley
28  COOKING / Dessert / Apple Galette + partly homemade hard cider on: March 03, 2010 08:51:53 PM
This is from a month ago, but I lost my camera charger and only managed to get a new one last week.

Apple galette:


The recipe is from Smitten Kitchen, and is delicious: http://smittenkitchen.com/2007/11/simplest-apple-tart/
I made it for my mother's birthday and apparently she really liked it.

I also managed to find some cider that, though pasteurized, had no additives like most ciders at the store, and with a pinch of yeast and some raisins it was soon turned into hard cider:





It was really good -- unfortunately, it has since turned very dry and extremely alcoholic, with a slight raisiny aftertaste. Ah well, still good for spiced cider.

I could have sworn I posted this here, considering I made it a while ago, but apparently not -- it was not in my topics OR pictures. So here it is:







It's done with Coptic stitch and the cover is some wrapping paper I saved up from a present. It reminded me of dragons, hence the title of the post (for lack of a better one).
