I REALLY like this piece. I likened it to a sunset over the water if you turn it pink side up.
I don't know anything about working with glass, how do you get the edges to melt?

I look forward to seeing more! Keep posting Smiley

I REALLY liked this painting - here in Canada, we have 4 seasons - it reminds me of that
Hope your day is awesome Smiley
25  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: APPLE CHIPS! *with tute!* on: June 02, 2013 06:25:51 PM
This is interesting - I've been making them for 15 years now and do them a bit differently.

some things I found:
Granny smith (green apples) are too tart, so you'd need more sugar
removing the peelings is better because they become little hard bits for kids to get caught in their throat
Removing the core also for the above reason
145 degrees Celsius for 12 hours makes them awesomely crunchy
I start to make them about 6pm, when they're done in the morning, they're ready for school lunches
If the apples are fresh, you can speedily remove the peelings & core using a hand-cranked apple peeler (they're like $10)

I cut the apple into quarters, remove the core with a paring knife, then the outer peeling.
After doing 12-15 apples (I choose large apples) I then take each quarter and cut them into smaller slivers-each one makes 4-5
and put them in a bowl after doing a bunch, I'll sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon & sugar mixed-1 part cinnamon to 3 parts sugar
over them, stirring them around gently with a spatula or big spoon, until they all have a bit on them. then I lay them on the trays in circular rows. each tray holds about 3-4 apples worth of chips - more if the apples are smaller

Oh! they stay crunchy longer if you keep them in a glass jar- I reuse spaghetti sauce jars (since they can't be recycled here)
My local food bank LOVES it when I send them some. I usually make 8 jars worth each time because I have 8 trays (I've killed a dehydrator & reused the trays)
Here's what they look like:

Trust me - they are tasty..and VERY addictive! Let me know how you made out  - peace!  Smiley

27   / REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Dream catcher from used glowsticks... on: May 20, 2013 09:54:29 AM
I had hundreds of these glowsticks after we had a youth group event. they didn't glow anymore, but they still were colourful. So I used crochet cotton and looked for a tutorial on how to make dream catchers. I made mine a little personal as I am a big romantic, so I'd like to dream accordingly. Wink

Ooo, that's a GREAT idea Dragonfly! Dry erase markers would work great here, but knowing kids, they'd mark on other things too. That could be a good game to play while you're waiting for your meal to arrive Smiley

Thank You! I also found another idea to take this one step further. I painted the inside of the glass jar a pale blue colour. It REALLY made a difference! I might make another & update with a pic - you'll see for sure! Smiley

how many pages do your menu covers have? Is it a single? 2-fold? or 3-fold?
On average, most restaurants get these by the 100's, so you should have lots
to play with! Smiley
