Sent! I'm going to miss having all that stuff scattered on my craft desk... I had a lot of fun with this one!

fingerpistol- I used a recipe I found on recipezaar.com ( http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Easy-Raspberry-Oat-Bars-35226 ) and altered it a bit. I used buckwheat flour and Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour mix in place of AP flour (I'm celiac, so it's what I had on hand) and I used lingonberry jam with a bunch of lemon zest instead of raspberry jam, and then I topped it all with a basic icing recipe and mixed-berry dried fruit. And a bit of coconut because I thought it would make the icing show up better. It did not.
But this recipe, as-is (with the gf flours, at least) is awesome. The fruit on top might be gilding the lily a bit.

There's an amazing Peruvian restaurant here in Portland that treats quinoa like risotto. So delicious. I haven't tried it at home yet though.

The original intention for the Fruity Oaty Bars was that they would have rainbow icing (you can prolly see a little of it on there- weird smudges of color!) but my icing recipe was way too thin. it all repeatedly ran off. I will post a picture when I get home of the beautiful icing puddles that were left!
And DON'T eat them all at once- you've probably noticed by now that they swell like crazy in your stomach! I ate one the afternoon I baked them, and couldn't eat for the rest of the day! Forgot to mention, they're gluten free too, so I could sample the wares... Yeah I will be making more of those!
I'm so happy you like everything, Armaine! And if the necklace is too much, it would be pretty easy to pull some strands off (just open the jump rings) and make them separate necklaces too. Though if you want to do that, let me know and I'll send you some more clasp things.

We're back on track! My package should be delivered today (I hope!) and I am so freaking relieved!

Uh oh. The tracking for my package to Armaine says it's been mis-shipped. Crap! I hope it gets there, and that I didn't do something wrong! It doesn't say it's LOST... so I hope it's not. Man, here goes MY work day. I'm going to be obsessively rechecking the status!

Oh no, Amazing_784. I refuse to be the cause of sadness in that adorable dog-faced dog! You march over there and cuddle the crap out of him/her. I can totally wait!

Wow. I don't know what to say, except I feel very lucky!

Check this out:

First up, this amazing tote bag/purse! The size is perfect for carrying my netbook and notebooks, or I might start using it to carry my lunch to work. Hell, I think I'll just toss out my old purse altogether! It has an outside pocket (with the amazing embroidery) and a good-sized one inside too.


Closer-up of the embroidery. It's absolutely perfect! I'm so impressed!

Oh, I just noticed that I cut off his little bum in the photo!

Inside the purse were these coasters decoupaged with Season 8 Buffy comics! Excuse my deck-that-really-badly-needs-refinishing in the background...








(My favorite- I'm  a bit behind on the comics because I got mad at Dark Horse Comics for not hiring me after a really great interview. Dicks. But is anyone else weirded out that Xander and Dawn are dating? Or, were as of the last one I read? It's just... icky.)

And last but CERTAINLY not least:

TINY PILLOW OF AWESOMENESS!!!

(It's pale blue in person)

Armaine also included a little note with these drawings on the front. I love tiny details like that!



Armaine, you're amazing. Thank you sooooo much!
