1  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate & Marshmallow Snowman Hats on: December 12, 2007 08:10:57 PM
I am making these as little goodies for Christmas.


I saw them at Cracker Barrel and thought wow I could easily make those and get many more for my money!!  So I bought all the supplies tonight...large marshmallows, chocolate sandwich cookies, and milk chocolate.  I have a few questions though...
1. How far ahead of time do you think I should/could make them (as I don't want to wait until the last minute...I'll be making cupcakes then =P)
2. Should I put them in goodie bags or a tin/box?
3. Dip cookie and marshmallow separate and then stick together or attach with a layer of chocolate and then dip?

I'm also asking over at the Bakespace forums =D
2  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Quick answer on how long to bake please on: September 29, 2007 09:11:14 AM
I am making horns that are about 1 1/2" tall and 1 1/4" wide.  That figures out to like an hour and a half for the thickest part, right?  Should I bake that long?  They're about to go in the oven and I have to leave at 2pm so please answer quick!  Thanks!!

Oh and it's black sculpeyIII, if that helps.
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Home-made soap infused sponges? on: September 06, 2007 09:12:50 PM
If you have no idea what i'm talking about you can look here: http://fashiontribes.typepad.com/la_story/2007/04/snappy_shower_b.html

I was wondering if anyone knows how to make them on your own?  Would it be like making the loofa soaps where you just put the soap around the sponge?  I think that might be wrong since the sponges are soft the first time you use them rather than being encased in soap.  It's like the soap is encased in the sponge!  If anyone has played with this idea I'd love to hear your findings =)
4  Georgia / Georgia: Southeast / To: Savannah Locals Re: things to see/do! on: August 29, 2007 04:26:32 PM
Ok I've been to Savannah once but we were only there for 24 hours.  We did your basic tourist crap.  This time I want to pretend I'm a local...kinda.  I need your suggestions for places to eat, shop and have fun.  I got inspired by the latest issue of Adorn so I've got all the places listed there on my guide.  Any other suggestions are sincerely needed. 
I looked at the Savannah topic and...I'm kinda sad to find people think it's a boring town.  Maybe it's because I've only been there for a short amount of time but it sure looks bright and shiny to me.
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Cocker Spaniel Sunflower or Lion ideas? on: August 22, 2007 10:36:28 PM
What would work best for a mane?  I was thinking of making one of those ribbon collars with different shades of yellow and orange. 
Also a good idea for a sunflower petals to go around the head?  i was thinking maybe felt but would it be sturdy enough to stand up?  I also thought about using wire to stiffen but i don't want to hurt my baby =(

This is a sample of the ribbon collar idea for the lion's mane: http://www.fouronthefloorpetwear.com/fancy-dog-collars.html

And here is my precious Sunny.  Can you tell why I immediately thought lion or sunflower?
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / scooby doo for special needs 13 yo on: August 21, 2007 10:49:59 PM
Ok so I got the AWESOME idea of dressing up as Velma for halloween.  Apparently not so original once searching scooby in this thread but anywho.  I always take my buddy Chris trick-or_treating on halloween and it would be really cool to dress him up as Scooby since he loves that silly dog.  Problem is, he's a special needs kid aged 13 so...it's kinda hard to find a costume his size.  I can totally hook him up with a sweatsuit but I dunno what to do about the head.  How can I make him recognizable as scooby doo cheaply?  Would just sewing some ears to a hoddie work?  and I guess attaching a scooby doo collar/ribbon.  How would i make that work?  Any help is awesome as I'm kinda up in the air on this one.

Oh and an easy tail idea for somebody who's not a great sewer?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skinny Tie Camera Strap on: August 11, 2007 08:59:17 AM
I got a hand me down camera from a friend (albeit the best hand me down ever!) and had no camera strap to lug it around.  I asked around about handmade camera straps and suddenly it came to me...a tie!  So without further ado here is my swanky skinny tie camera strap!

Just a square on the sewing machine to hold it together about half-way between the fold and ends of the tie.


Crappy action shot.  Hey!  I only have one nice camera right now x.x

The strap is reversible allowing you to purposely let the tie ends hang down or attempt to tuck them under (which doesn't work as well as planned).  I bought my tie at http://www.solidcolorneckties.com and the D rings are from http://www.cdwplus.com!  The lanyard hooks are just from Michaels*.  There are things I would probably change if I made another one but I definately love it's uniqueness and I get lots of comments!

*Story about buying them* I went in Michaels specifically looking for these for my strap.  After looking in the lanyard aisle and the jewelry aisle with no luck I asked the closest employee "Do you guys have lanyard hooks?"  She gave me the most blank look and said "Umm...what do they look like?"  Now I dunno if you've ever had to EXPLAIN the details of a lanyard hook but it's kinda hard.  You just sort of expect people to know what it is...especially somebody in their 20s working at Michaels!  She ended up asking another girl who said "Oh yeah we have those!" and led me right to the lanyard aisle where I had overlooked them.
8  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / WNC scrapbook stores on: May 29, 2007 07:05:47 PM
I'm on a hunt for scrapbook stores in western north carolina.  Especially ones that have classes as I need some inspiration to get started.  I found a great scrapbook store in Morganton but I'm not sure what it was called =/
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Desperate for 2" D rings!! (found) on: May 08, 2007 10:47:49 PM
I can't find any anywhere and have searched to no avail.  If you can just give me some trusted handbag hardware shops online that would be helpful.  I'm not interested in Ebay so please keep that in mind.
Why does everything seem to only go up to 1.5"  Huh
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / easter egg picks on: March 23, 2007 09:22:07 PM
I saw this at the grocery store today and of course I had to examine.  In the potted plants there were easter eggs poking out.  I picked one out and looked to see how it was attatched to the pick.  HOT GLUE!  So cute and simple!  It'd be great to throw in a plant you're gifting at easter or as a easter decoration for your own plants!  Just grab some wooden floral picks from the craft store and a bag of plastic easter bags.  There are many ways to decorate such as using those plastic wrappers that shrink in boiling water or my mom used to use fabric paint straight out of the bottle.  Makes nice puffy designs (though they peel off so keep away from kids or people who like to pick at things).

Just an idea I thought I'd share.  If I make some I'll post pics.  I thought about taking pics of the ones at the store but they were pretty blah.
