1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Flock Together on: July 01, 2007 01:30:28 PM


This is a mixed media I've been working on this afternoon.  The tree is decoupaged from several nature manuals and then whitewashed.  The rest is in acrylics.

Thanks for looking!

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Smiley Kitchen Mugs on: June 24, 2007 03:47:56 PM
I've been experimenting with Pebeo Porcelaine lately, and I am *eating* it!  I bought a bunch of mugs from Goodwill and I started customizing them today.  Let me know what you think. Smiley

This is sort of image heavy.  Sorry for that.







3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Pet bowl for my cat on: June 24, 2007 03:30:39 PM
So I'm experimenting with Pebeo Porcelaine paints, and I took a break from mug painting to work on a food bowl for my cat Obi.  I bought a bowl from the local Goodwill for $1.00 and I repainted his name and the little fishbone.  It didn't take very long, and I eat the results.  Hopefully my kitty will like the new bowl too.

4  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Spiniach Rice Casserole on: November 25, 2006 07:22:10 PM
I'll second the suggestion for AllRecipes.  I found this great vegan split pea soup there: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Vegan-Split-Pea-Soup-I/Detail.aspx.  Try searching vegan - a lot of people put that in their recipe header.

This Spinach-Rice Casserole is really good.  I found it in some old veggie cookbook, and I've been using it for awhile now.  There's a little bit of cheese in this recipe, but you could probably reduce it or omit it. 

1 Small onion chopped (1/2 cup)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 TB oil
1 14 1/2 oz can italian style chpped tomatoes
1 tsp oregano or basil
8 oz tofu, drained
2 cps cooked brown rice
1 10 oz package of frozen chopped spinach
1/2 cp of shredded swiss cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 TB sesame seed

Cook onion and garlic in oil.  Add undrained tomatoes and oregano, simmer about 3 minutes. 

Blend tofu and then add to tomato mixture.  Add cooked rice, spinach, and half of swiss cheese, salt, and pepper.  Grease 2-quart rectangular dish, and add mixture.  Bake uncovered in a 350 degree oven for 30 to 40 minutes or till heated through.  Sprinkle with remaining cheese and sesame seeds. 

Its also low in calories and fat, and is really yummy. 
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Teeny Bubble Elephant DS Lite Case on: September 05, 2006 02:43:46 PM
Okay, so I finally got my Nintendo DS Lite.  After months of full scale drooling, I managed to scrape together enough cash to get the best handheld system ever.  And it is worth the hype, kids.

So, to go with my shiny new machine, I needed a shiny new case.  My sewing is still pretty green, so please ignore the messy stitching and all. I followed the mini-Jordy bag with flap directions with a little improvising.  The whole thing is done with two sheets of craft felt from JoAnn's (at $0.20 each!), and the design is just cute and hand sewn with the leftover felt.  This project was so fun, and totally gratifying.

First, the case opened to display the teeny bubble elephant on the back (and flap):

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Batman Storage Cube on: February 27, 2006 09:34:27 PM
Generally, i just lurk on Craftster and let the genius of the collective wash over me.  But I liked how this turned out so I wanted to share.

I used modge podge to affix these 60's era Batman comics to a supremely ugly snagged storage cube.
