1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 70's halter top from an old t-shirt on: August 12, 2009 10:55:49 PM
I made this out of a t-shirt. It is orange with a black raven sitting on a branch. This was super easy and quick! I used instructions from "Generation T: 108 Ways to Transform a T-Shirt". I will be making many more things out of that book as soon as I can get to a thrift store!  Grin



2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / My Favorite French Toast Recipe + Pancakes and Waffles on: April 19, 2009 07:57:40 PM
This makes delicious french toast:

6 one inch thick slices of french bread, stale
2 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
cinnamon + allspice, to taste
butter or olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, salt, and spices in a medium bowl. Soak bread in the mixture until all the liquid is absorbed. In a pan greased with butter or olive oil, let each side of the bread cook only until it is golden brown, about 3 minutes. Place on a cookie sheet, bake for 12-15 minutes.





Also, I recently made these pancakes. I used bisquick, but added mashed banana and mango to the batter. Smiley



Finally, here are some waffles I made. I also used Bisquick for these, but added vanilla, cinnamon, and allspice to the batter. I had no maple syrup, so I made chocolate syrup to put on them.






Chocolate Sauce:
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/4 C milk
pat of butter

In a mug or small bowl, mix sugar and cocoa, slowly stir in milk. Add the butter. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, stir.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Strawberry-Glitter Purse on: October 12, 2008 10:43:13 AM
I have been wanting to sew on a machine for years and years and years. My mom and my grandma have both been sewing as long as I can remember, and yesterday my mom showed me how!

I first made a pillow, then a purse. I didn't use a pattern for either, and it's kind of obvious xD.










I'm going to use the purse as a lunch-bag.

For my next project, I have a lot of black pleather. I want to make something like this----> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=269580.0

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Collage for BF on: January 28, 2007 01:32:49 AM
I just spent the past few hours making this collage to give to my boyfriend on Valentines day. I kind of messed up because it's all wrinkled, but oh well.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The wonderful Ravenclaw scarf! on: September 02, 2006 01:00:10 AM
Okay, I may be cheating. I didn't acually make this fantastic scarf, my mom did. But I still think it's pretty cool.

I took my mom about two months to make this (it was her first project). It's suppposed to look like a scarf from Harry Potter.

I think I'm supposed to write about how it was made now...

It was done with wool yarn on size 8 needles. I have NO idea where she got the pattern from, but I suspect knitty.com.

Please don't judge me by this picture.  Wink I know I look REALLY weird. My mom told me to "pose" and I didn't realise she was taking my picture! (do'h). So... I DO NOT normally look like this.  Grin ...and I do not have a mullet. This is just a weird picture.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / In need of cheap yarn- help!? on: June 24, 2006 10:20:23 PM
Okay, people. I need help again.

I really love knitting, but I never have any good yarn. All I have is some itchy Red Heart yarn.

I was wondering where I can buy really cheap, and good, yarn.

Keep in mind I usually only have $5 or under to buy yarn with when ever I end up going to a yarn store.

Help!
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Dog Birthday Party Ideas on: June 23, 2006 07:52:27 PM
Okay, I know this is going to sound strange, but I'm having a birthday party for my dog. I have no idea what to do! I really need ideas. He is a corgi named Chewie, if that helps. I was thinking of something outside, since he's a dog and all. Help?!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / One hour baby booties gone wrong on: June 23, 2006 06:42:50 PM
Well, There is this woman I know is pregnant with twin girls and she just had a baby shower. I was going to go to the baby shower, and had plans to knit something really cool, like two little baby blankets with hearts all over them, or little sweaters with polka dots, or just anything really cute for two babys. Well, I still couldn't decide what to make a week before the baby shower. In fact, it ended up being the day before until I realised I'd better get cracking. So then I realised all I had time to make were baby booties. So I got some yarn and started making them, but I only made one because I had used yarn that was too chunky, so the bootie was huge. When I tried again, the yarn was too small. That's when I just gave up. I ended up just not going to the baby shower.  Tongue
