Is it made from poly clay? I hope you'll share how you made it.   Smiley

Basically clay, dental tools, and patience.  LOL

MissingWillow sent me a beautiful Luna charm ornament.  It's like a clock face locket with a patronus rabbit, glasses, and a cork necklace tucked inside.  A Quibbler charm was hidden on the back too.  Fun!  Thanks!  Can't wait to get the tree up for it.

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Life Sized Operation Game on: November 06, 2015 05:09:52 PM
I was in charge of the local elementary school's Halloween Carnival this year and wanted to have something to make it extra special.  Me and my husband saw an idea online about a life sized Operation and went with it.  It was all created from scratch.  Pattern and programming up.  Hubs created all the electrical and the wood, and I painted and created the pieces as well as all the cards that flip through in the computer.  There is a small raspberry pi, basically like an ipad, with a touch screen and hubs programmed all the workings and speakers with it as well.  Everytime you win or lose it is another sound.  And they are fun ones like pacman sounds, mario, price is right, etc.  

Kids adored the game and many came back so many times their parents had to buy more punches.  As for the carnival itself everyone who came had a blast and complimented everything, but it wasn't well attended at all.  doh.  We made a ton of other games but that will be a different post once I get all the pictures sorted.

So onto life sized Operation!

9  COOKING / Dessert / American Flag Jello Jigglers on: July 04, 2015 08:04:24 PM
Saw these on youtube and knew I had to make them.  It takes a bunch of jello, but the end was worth it.  Everyone at the block party I took them to kept chatting them up the entire night.  People were fascinated by them.  I was mean and wouldn't tell them the secret of the blue at the top, LOL.  But here's the secret.  You layer them upside down.  Start with the blue as a full base and when it is set cut it into strips, and then layer the red and white over it.

But here's where I found them at,  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=029MeniEifU  They are so fun!  Taste is like a dumb gelatin jiggler, but it's okay enough.  The novelty is good enough to make the taste.

10  COOKING / Dessert / Gluten Free "Donut" Cupcakes on: June 22, 2015 10:40:03 AM
For father's day I made cupcakes for the hubby.  I found cute donut cupcake toppers and liners so used that as my inspiration.  I've been gluten free so decided to make them gf so I could eat them too.  They turned out really good.  With the flour I used (Grandpa's Kitchen) it didn't have the sandy texture that many gf baked goods do, so I was impressed!

Soft and airy, good crumb and texture

GF chocolate cake/cupcakes

1 cup GF flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup cocoa

1 1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine dry ingredients in large bowl.  Pour in wet ingredients and beat 2 minutes.  Scoop into cupcake pan with liners, filling about 1/2 full.  Bake 30 mins until toothpick tests clean in center.  Cool and frost.
