Those finger hands are awesome! Did you just add some clay to the original hands? They look great!

Oh wow thanx you guys! I love wearing these all over campus and watching people watch me as I walk by. I'm in nursing school now and they take some love, so I'm not sure if I have the time and energy to enterprise these just yet but feel free to create your own stache, and if you find a superfast way to do it I haven't thought of yet, lemme know!

Here's a terrible shot of The Hitler:

And I'm not sure what Meagan calls this but I think of it as the Burt Reynold's Walrus edtion.

So I'm not sure where to really put this, it's not exactly classic needlepoint, but I used a crochet hook so I'm stickin it here!
It's 2008's must have accessory! Well to me anyways. My friends and I are obsessed with mustaches and together we thought of these pins to attach to our scarves:
This is El Bandito prototype

El Bandito v.2

The Super Mario

So far other styles include: The John Waters, The Burt Reynolds/Uncle Touchy, The Ned Flanders, and The Hitler.


All it took was pin backs & glue, black yarn, a tiny ass crochet hook, patience, and that plastic grid stuff for needlepoint or whatever else it's used for. I wanted to latch hook them, but alas the grid was too small.

Pretty Epic.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: easiest leg warmers ever tutorial on: February 07, 2008 11:54:51 AM
I did this with a thrift store fugly pink sweater for a halloween costume once. I did the leg warmers just like yours, then with the rest of the sweater i cut it to have one shoulder and a matching headband. It's perfect for a halloween costume but otherwise a bit much to wear them all together. It's barfy pink and went great with my madonna beads and a poufy skirt!

Those baked brie in dough are yummy but I've never attempted one. And I've never heard of one with jam all over it.....sounds good though.......

Mmm! This sounds amazing! I go on these crazy bleu cheese kicks, and this sounds like a great new way to keep the madness going! Thanx for sharing!

I just posted this in another thread but I had some pepperchinis wrapped in creamcheese smeared on salami and they were heavenly!

My favorite appetizer is a bit pricey but friggin delish: baked brie in a bread bowl! Take a round sourdough bread loaf, cut the top off and hollow it out. Take a couple wedges of brie and cutt of the rind, and place it inside the hollowed out bread. Cut the innards of the bread you pulled out into cubes. You can bake these along with the bowl or throw em under the broiler with the top once is all baked to crisp up for dippin! Put the top back on and bake until the brie is melty and enticing! Sometimes the outside browns too fast and the cheese doesn't melt so take out your cubed bits and turn down the oven or play around with some tinfoil. Sorry it's not exactly precise but I don't cook that way! Oh and you must devour this before the brie cools down which isn't a problem usually cuz it's generally gone in 5 minutes. Once your bread pieces are gone, rip apart the bread bowl itself and defend yourself from hungry party goers while you stuff it in your face.

Oh and this is rad to assemble ahead of time, bring it with you and then throw in the oven of the party you're at cuz it must be pipin hot!

I think pickled things+creamcheese+lunchmeat=yumminess on a toothpick.
I had something similar at a baby shower the other day, but they were pepperchinis, cream cheese and salami. The tart pepperchini cuts the greasy salami perfectly! Mmm this pickled thing seems genious!
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What's you favorite chicken marinade? on: November 19, 2007 05:47:33 PM
Mustard! Spicy brown, dijon, whatever. Most have no sugar or fat and you can use it instead of mayo for chicken salad.

That is awesome! I too make vaginas, and I would have loved to do something for the vagina monologues, but am too caught up in nursing school to make vaginas all day. I have always wanted to make a quilt or blanket, sort of a granny square creation with vaginas. Anyhoo, here's pics of a pin I made, and of my "coin puss". I have been doing this for a while, and have decided to live my life by the crocheted vagina. If you aren't the type of person who can appreciate a crocheted vagina (you don't even have to agree to wear the pin, just appreciate it!), then I don't want to hang out with you.
