I never post on this board, but this is a recipe I modified from Linda McCartneys cookbook.. I'm not very varied in what I eat, and this is one of my favourite things to eat ^_^
Its so simple, you're going to have this stuff in your cupboard.
You need: *Oregano *Wholegrain loaf (or one of those already sliced ones, as long as it wholegrain) *Cheddar Cheese (grated) - Kilmeaden cheese (Irish) is bloody gorgeous, i have it on everything! *Tomato Puree - I use organic *Salt and Pepper *Olive Oil *Garlic
1. Slice your bread, crush garlic and mix with olive oil, spread on bread 2. Allow to lightly brown under grill for 2 minutes 3. Spread with tomato puree, sprinkle with oregano, salt & pepper. Grate cheese (liberally!) over slices 4. Place in grill on a medium heat for 5-10mins, until cheese has melted. Then remove and enjoy!
For the weight concious, just get some kitchen paper and press lightly on the pizzas to remove excess oil!
I recieved Emergency_Exit's package today! Its amazing and it puts my package in the dark! I'll post pics of what I sent her, and I might be able to get pics of what she sent me up soon.
I sent her: *Bertie Bots beans.. but they weren't the actual Hasbro branded ones, they were all nice flavours! ^_^ *Cadbury's Elves candy bars... there were orginally three, but my little brother stole one! *Record disk earrings - a minature version of a Wierd Sisters record! *Lightening bolt necklace.. I think we all know what that represents (I had the earrings and this in a christmas cracker.) *4 coasters, representing the four houses *Mrs Weasley's cookbook, with recipes inspired by various characters in the book. I'm glad to hear Emergency Exit likes to cook, because theres plenty of space for her to make her own additions! *Candy canes, a letter from Professor McGongall concerning the Yule Ball, an handpainted Xmas card - Not HP related. And I wrapped everything in Christmas paper.
I got some really pretty tissue paper in a craft shop ages ago, i thought it was so pretty i wanted to use for something. So one day i bought a cheap photoframe, got some of my pretty purple ribbons..
I just used some pva glue, decoupaged it onto the photoframe. but the layer was too thin, so i decoupaged another layer on so the pattern would come out more. I didn't like the garish gold colour, so around the edge of the frame i used the pva to stick the ribbon on.
I got the wire mesh in a hardware store. The holes small enough to fit earring wire through, it was easy to cut, so i got the glass from the photoframe traced it onto the wire, and used a scissors to cut it out so it would fit. To stick the wire to the frame, i used UHU all purpose glue, and i left it beside the radiator, added some more glue, then let it dry. And ta-da!
I think it looks really kitchsy/vintage. Very proud of it. And the purple matches my room!
Was the tut helpful? A bit basic, but its simple to make. And it makes a great gift.
DONE! I gave it to her last week and she loved it.
I put in 2 pearl braclets, moonstone earrings, a audrey hepburn decoupaged photoframe, minty chewing gum (holly needs fresh breath after smoking! my mate dosent smoke.. but she likes chewing gumm.. and she gets the joke! lol), an eyebrow & eyelash brush (like holly uses when she's talking to fred when he's in her room), sunglasses (everyone knows that holly wears them) and Audrey Hepburn singing 'Moon River'! All in all i was really happy with it, and it was a success!! Totally unique to what anyone else gave her.
My mum was nagging me for ages to paint something on the wall in my little bro's room (he's 9). We had no idea what to put on it, but we wanted to keep in touch with the colour scheme of blue, red and yellow. So when i was in TKK MAXX, i got this cool offical DC batman logo t-shirt, and with the label was this awesome pop-art-ish "pow!" logo, and it was in the exact colours we needed. So i got some small sample pots of wall paint in Homebase, and some black paint (for outlining) that i think was for railings.. but what the hey. I didn't do the outlining for about 2months after, because my dad kept forgetting to get the paint.
But heres the result.. very pleased with it if i may so myself. My mum's at me now to do something else alongside it. My brother wants something from the Nightmare Before Christmas. Jack and Sally. On the hill (like you can see on his poster, that me, the coolest sis ever got for him 2 weeks ago when i was in England )
And you can see how it ties in with the curtains (tacky ones at that in my opinion, my mum got them).. and the lovely organisation of the posters.. i tidied them up for him last week. And i stuck those glow on the dark things on the wall, and in the bare space.
I love Pop art, and the comic book pictures.. hopefully when im all grown up with kids i'll have comic cook hero room for my little boy, or maybe the girl might get into it when she's older
Ok last night i tried to sew a cozy for my zen micro out of a sock. But it went all botched after me spending ages on it. It didnt work out at all.
I looked for tutorials on here, but i didnt find any relevant ones.. i'd really apriciate you guys help. I dont have a sewing machine, i cant knit (sob!), theres no fabric shop in my town anymore, i can just about do basic sewing, not very neatly though.
Heres some pictures.. id like to try again.. but have no idea what to do. Feedback will very much be aprriciated!!
Where you see the mp3 player, it wont sit in the sock, the material keeps folding back, plus i had a small piece of material between the keypad and screen, that was too small, i had planned to fold the sock over the player cover, and fasten at the back with a button. I was really frustrated.. as i had it all planned out, and gah!
Please, PLEASE, please help a hopless wannabe crafter! <33
