1  EUROPE / GERMANY / Craft stores in Berlin? on: October 13, 2010 11:55:11 AM
Hi everyone!

I'm new to Berlin (new to Germany, in fact) and was hoping someone could recommend some craft stores for me- I've had a look at the other threads but (and I will sound silly) people mostly seem to be looking for something special, whereas I'm mostly hoping to find a run-of-the-mill chain store where I can buy knitting needles and other basic supplies. The stores here are basically -all- different to the ones in Australia, so I really don't even know where to begin.

Any advice will be appreciated!

Thanks everyone  Cheesy

2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Tasty dinners: Beetroot tart and 'Mexican' pasta. on: May 26, 2010 02:59:23 AM
Hi everyone! I'm going to treat this as a first post, as although I did post once when I originally joined Craftster (six years ago!), due to an excess of crazy in my life at that time, I had to abandon the site (and basically the internet in general) for quite some time.
Ahem. So, my name is Lauren. And now we move on...

So, after eating out a lot this weekend (so many restaurants, so little time!) this week I have felt the strain on both my budget and my waistline, and decided to use up some of the food in my pantry and refrigerator instead of going grocery shopping.

First dinner I made was a beetroot tart, which became a free-form tart after I realised I don't own a pie dish (I am a university student and keep most of my cooking supplies in boxes under my dorm-room bed, so this shouldn't have been a surprise to me). It came out of the oven looking very pretty, but I felt that it was missing something flavour-wise.



I made it with puff-pastry, layers of roasted pumpkin, sweet potato and beetroot, and an egg/fetta mix. Any suggestions to improve this one would be appreciated- I still have plenty of beets and I'm sure that there must be something I can do with them other than preserving them in vinegar!

Second dinner (tonight's option) was a Mexican-chili-style pasta with canned tomatoes, kidney beans, Sanitarium casserole mince (which is basically TVP with a gravy of sorts- looks sort of like cat food but cooks up very nicely), some fresh corn and grated carrot, a package of salsa, some powdered chili and a bunch of random herbs. Yummy comfort food!

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Multi-strand necklaces (yep, another newbie) on: October 24, 2005 02:14:53 AM
Hi there! Smiley I've been lurking here for a long time and finally got my arse into gear and decided to post (finally setting up a photobucket account also helped :p)
I'm Lauren. 17 year old Australian. Just graduated from high school (still have a multitude of exams, though). Anyway, on with the post!

I made these necklaces a while ago (the blue one, probably eight months ago?) but the picture was already on my computer and I just wanted to post something :p The picture quality isn't great, but the colours are accurate and the beads you can probably guess at! One happy accident I'm particularly fond of is the blue necklace-at first, I loved the colour but wondered if it was full enough, but after rolling it up in my jewellery box overnight, the fishing wire I threaded it on woke up all curly. Smiley Comments are, of course, appreciated Wink
