1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: Rock Out With Your [censored] Out version 2 on: June 23, 2009 06:11:13 PM
You do nice work but I got to tell you, coming across that sure shocked me. Maybe i am just getting old but I know a lot of youngsters come on here and i don't think they will pay attention to the censored in the title. It may even make them look if they know what it means. Perhaps I am just out of the loop. I didn't notice it until I had already clicked on it. I just clicked on "recent post with pics". If we are going to have things like this on here, I wish we could have a special place for them and not where you will scroll past them by accident.  Shocked JMHO

That..is just off the hook.  Or in craftster lingo...that rocks! Shocked
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Soda Can purse on: June 23, 2009 04:07:31 PM
That is so cool. Did you line it with anything, if so, what? I think this would look just fine with a rope handle.  OR that plastic webbing you see in lawn chairs.  Smiley I have seen something like this on a smaller scale where they crocheted the squared together.

I am so into paper lately. It is amazing what you can do with a pair of scissors, some glue and a little imagination. I love your flowers and vase. That must have been a little tricky making the branch hold together though.

I am inspired to try and make my favorite flower, out of magazine paper. I love pink dogwoods so I am going down that path. Thanks for inspiring me.

Why not rent a karaoke machine and have everyone sing. It is more fun if no one can sing.  Smiley We do this every fourth of July. We have a big dinner on the ground with grilling and then everyone who wants to sing, gets up. You would be amazed how good some can sound even if they haven't done it before.

As for the craft, why not make  paper beads. There is a tute on here somewhere, telling you how it's done if you don't know. They are really easy to make even for a five year old. Cost is nothing but paper, glue and modge podge. String the beads on elastic cord and make bracelets. Have some little beads for the grown ups to put in between their paper beads, so they look prettier,  and just tie them off when they are finished. No fasteners needed. These turn out really pretty enough to wear even if you are not a kid. Did I mention it would be cheap. Just collect your junk mail. The inside of some envelopes make very pretty beads as does a brown paper bag. Copy paper in various colors is great too.

You did a fabulous job on those trees of life. I love all of them.
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Best recipe/foodie/food craft sites? on: June 09, 2009 01:39:56 PM
I love recipezaar.com. It has the most amazing cooks on there. I like the way the site lets you create your own cookbook, so if you see something you like, you can pull it into your cookbook. I also like the Kraft foods site and the Betty Crocker site. Of course, these sites build recipes around thier products, but I don't always like to cook from scratch so these are good for me.  Pillsbury has some great recipes based on thier bread products. I like the things you can do with a little bit of dough and some meat.  Smiley

Funny you should ask. My lovely sister in law from the country, just brought me some yellow squash and cucumbers. So I now have my lovely squash in a pot which started with some carmelized oninons and a little bacon. I'll cook them down until the water is gone. I love yellow squash.  So we'll have that, some great sliced tomatos and cukes and whatever mystery meat, my DH is grilling. He just left for the store so I have no idea what he is getting. I need to call him and put in an order for cheesecake. : )
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Grilled Melons!!! on: June 09, 2009 01:27:19 PM
I'm not big on grilled melon but I do like pineapple and peaches. I do think adding a little acid of some kind on top of the fruit, like lemon, lime or balsamic vinegar, makes them taste better. I love gilling season because I can just cook up some side dishes and let the DH grill the meat. We eat a lot of potato salad, pasta salad and plain old green salad, this time of year. Grilled veggies have to have a lot of olive oil on them for me to like them. I don't like a dry grilled veggie, so they are not diet friendly for me. LOL  I do love grilled corn and eggplant a lot..Grilled sweet potaotes are heavenly, but there again, oil them up well for me.

I love this. I wonder if you could just glue it with good old Elmers glue and just spray coat it with varnish a few times when you are done. I am soo cheap and lazy. Spray varnish is cheaper than Mod Podge.
