21  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: Altered Puzzle Pieces, Round 9 (SU to 7/1/14 ; FINAL MAIL BY 8/4/14) on: July 12, 2014 06:50:31 PM
I only have one more sets, of what I have received, to finish.  I am so loving these.  Gonna work on the leftover pieces of my puzzle as well.  These are so much fun!

Yay!  I'm so glad you're enjoying the swap.  I struggled a little bit last round (both with technique and inspiration), but I'm feeling like my creativity is flowing much better this time.

crazyda79, all those pet projects are wonderful!  But I love the haunted house hoop the best.  Smiley

Went supply shopping at Joann today with my friend, managed to get supplies for several projects:

  • Found a ***, which will serve as my "canvas" for applying the *** I already finished last week.  This will be the first "complete" project.
  • Purchased a nice ***.  Picked up a couple of scrapbooking papers to use for the background, and got them Mod Podged on.
  • Bought a *** to put the *** that my friend already had lying around at her house!  Now I just need to find a *** and it will be basically complete.
  • Okay... if I pull this one off, I will be really excited.  Bought a *** kit, and two different kinds of *** to serve as the base.
  • Bought a set of ***, and got them all glitter-fied.
  • My friend had several *** in her craft stash, so I didn't have to purchase them.
  • I was originally planning on making a *** without using ***, but then I found a really cool set at the store.

Intrigued, partner?  Wink

I want to try all of these but have a problem with 4-5 hr recipes. I work all day and use the crock pot for a hot meal that's ready for dinner time when I get in the door. That's over 8 hours most days. I can try these quick (relatively quick anyhow, lol) recipes on days that I'm hope I guess. I just with there were more all day recipes out there Tongue.

I've been thinking about that too.  Some of these 4-5 hour recipes, I'm thinking that I may have to start cooking them when I got home from work the day before, so they'll be ready by the time I go to bed that night and we can eat them the next day.  Not nearly as exciting as food ready in a hot pot when you walk in the door, but gotta make it work.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Anpanman ATC
Brief Description: A tried-and-true method for warding off evil is enlisting the help of a superhero.  Anpanman is one of the most popular TV characters for young children in Japan.  His face is on all manner of products.  Anpan is a kind of bread (pan) filled with slightly-sweet red bean paste (anko).  So, Anpanman is basically a superhero whose head is a pastry roll.

Prompt: Team Spirit Multimedia - Entertainment Center
Team: Multimedia
Event:
Craftology (for the watercolor painted background)
Bonus Points: +10 Bonus for own Team Spirit prompt
Project Name: Anpanman ATC
Brief Description: I love TV!  Unlike movies, which quickly come to an end, great TV series go on for years, offering hours and hours of entertainment.  And unlike books, which require 100% attention, TV can play in the background, meaning I can craft at the same time!  (Awww, come on books, don't look at me like that... you know I love you.  Kiss)

Anywho, Anpanman is one of the most popular TV characters for young children in Japan.  His face is on all manner of products.  Anpan is a kind of bread (pan) filled with slightly-sweet red bean paste (anko).  So, Anpanman is basically a superhero whose head is a pastry roll.

Prompt: June - The Best Things in Life
Team: Multimedia
Event:
Foodology
Project Name: Crockpot Ribs and Roasted Baby Carrots
Project Link: http://www.bakeatmidnite.com/2013/12/slow-cooker-maple-glazed-short-ribs.html
Brief Description: This dinner was all about making use of products I already had on hand, so that I wouldn't have to buy extra things from the store.  The recipe for the ribs is very simple, but calls for a specialty brand spice mix that is not available in my grocery store.  The link lists a recipe for creating your own alternative rub, but any ingredient I was lacking, I just substituted with an equal amount of a garlic spice rub we use for BBQ.

The real "recycling" part of this meal was the roasted carrots.  Every week, I buy a small platter of crudités to eat as part of my lunch.  But during the summer months (which I have off as a teacher), I end up eating out a lot for lunch while running errands, and so I don't always finish the raw veggies before they "turn".  This week I had a bunch of baby carrots left over, and thankfully it occurred to me that I could roast them in the oven!  Tossed in olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper, and placed in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Pop them into a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes, and they are soooo good!  Brown on the underside, and the sweetness of the carrot really comes to the forefront.

Project Picture:  This dinner was so yummy, I completely forgot to take a picture until I was down to the last bite!



Prompt: Button Up
Team: Multimedia
Event:
Foodology
Project Name: (Yucky) Orange Chicken with Button Mushrooms
Brief Description: Tried out a slow cooker Orange Chicken recipe that was not a winner at all -- in fact, I deleted the pin already and can't find the recipe anymore, heheh.  But for the side dish, I took the skillet I browned the meat in, deglazed with some white wine, melted several Tbsp. of butter, and cooked up some button mushrooms!  Liberally seasoned with salt, pepper, lemon juice and lemon zest, the side turned out much better than the main dish.

CATS!

Seeing this next to your avatar cracked me up, gozer. Grin Also, I think it's funny how your cat avatar seems to be looking up hungrily at artsycandice's hummingbird in the previous post.  Wink
