1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Super Simple Apron Swap - Round 3 GALLERY on: August 21, 2013 07:26:46 AM
Oh my goodness! That Hello Kitty apron is adorable!

I received my apron on Monday but didn't get a chance to check the mail until last night! I absolutely love it Cheesy And so will be doing a mini-photo shoot sometime today or tomorrow depending on when my neighbor and I can get together and do it (I don't trust my 5-year old with my camera, lol... he tends to run off with it to take pictures of his stuffed animals instead!)

Augh! I may be sending late >_< So much work left to do and no time to do it all in! Luckily, big kiddo starts school tomorrow, so that'll be one kiddo out of my lap so I can work during the day Smiley

Ok- just went back a couple days and here we go!

@noodle-bug: Those banners are simply amazing! What a great way to welcome people to the festival! Plus, those red boots? Total <3! They're kind of a different take on Dorothy's Ruby Slippers and so much cooler!

@BadWolf314: I must have that bookshelf! It's too awesome not to have ^_^

@ Ant Bee: I admire your... knitti-ness- not a word, but hey! I can't figure out color-changes for the life of me so what you made is awesome! I'm sure the lucky newly weds will love the wonderful crafty geekery Cheesy

@pottermouth: LOL! I love your Alton tales! Especially the pic with Snape telling a whale of of tale! The details you got on Alton's clothing is simply amazing and I can't believe you _didn't_ go cross-eyed making it!

@pinkleo: I love the starfish cloths! The colors you chose are great for a calm summery and beachy feel!

@midkiffsjoy: I will definitely have to try that breakfast popsicle recipe for my son! Looks delicious!

@travelgirl: Blueberry ice cream? Your hubby is one lucky dude because that looks sooooo yummy! And your cross-stitch looks huge! How big is it? It turned out looking awesome!

@naantje: Lovely work for your first time using DPNs! Cheesy

@patty_o_furniture: I love that boyfriend kit you made for your niece. I bet she'll be carrying her mini-man around with her all over the place!

@netchez: Thank you for the hat pattern link. I love the colors that you chose for the hat (jewel-tones are sooo pretty Smiley ). And also, I think it's wonderful that you made something for older children as it seems to me that people tend to skip these age groups in favor of adults and babies... children need to be warm, too!

I'm going to be jumping into this semester extremely late... but into school a little early as I'll only be a first year. I've just been admiring everybody's projects that I can't help myself but get excited! The many ways that everyone interprets the prompts is extremely interesting to watch!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quiditch Snitchnip (penalty)
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: First Time (ever) Canning!
Brief Description: While I'm not really a stranger in the kitchen, I do tend to stick with the same types of cooking and baking. I've recently become interested in the concept of canning and so I did my first canning experiment! My family loves Apple Butter but really only get it when we visit one of the Amish communities near my in-laws on the East Coast (a bit hard to do now that we live on the West Coast...) so I found a recipe online for crockpot Apple Butter (sugar-free, too!) and here's what happened:

1. Peeled, cored, and diced 10 Fuji apples and set them in the crockpot on low and added a sprinkling of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves (didn't measure the spices, just put in a little at a time until I got the taste I wanted at the end)


2. After about 5 or 6 hours (I wasn't looking at the time) the apples were soft enough to smoosh with a spoon, so I let them cook a little longer, added in more of the spices as it still tasted too much like applesauce. Then placed the contents in my blender and blended it smooth. Then poured it back into the crockpot and left the lid cracked so that the steam could escape and the butter could thicken.


3. Sterilized little 4 oz. jars using a boiling water bath. I slowly increased the temperature on the stove to boiling 'cause I didn't want to deal with broken glass from heating it too quickly...


4. Filled the jars with the finished apple butter, closed the lids and set them back in the boiling water for 10 minutes to seal! Took them out of the boiling water and set to rest. <-- This is where I got frustrated 'cause the seals kept popping in and out as the jars cooled down! I couldn't tell if I had done it properly or not. However, they were all popped in when I checked on them this morning! Success, woot!


5. Found out that 10 apples will make 4- 4 oz jars of delicious apple butter that both my son and next door neighbor approve of! And so of course, the obligatory TOAST test!


So- try new thing = success! I hope to experiment with some pumpkin butter once pumpkins are in season Cheesy
