31  Hamentashen: Purim Cookies in Dessert by HSG on: March 13, 2014 07:31:52 AM
Purim is this Sunday so it was time to make some Hamentashen (fruit-filled triangular cookies) for our friends.



There are many, many recipes out there for making these yummy cookies, but here is the one I used for these.
Hamentashen:
Dough
    cup shortening
    1 cup honey
    4 eggs
    4 cups flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. salt
Sift all dry ingredients together. Make a well in center and put all other ingredients in. Mix by hand or with mixer till dough forms. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Roll out dough to 1/8th inch and use a glass to cut out cookies.


Place cookies on parchment lined cookie sheets. Place tsp. of your favorite dried fruit or preserves. This time I used cherry and strawberry preserves. Pinch 3 corners.


Bake for 20 minutes in 350 degree oven. Cool and eat!

Freilichen Purim! Grin

Received from blupasian yesterday. Smiley Each one is so different and you can see she put a lot of time into them.
This one has a squirrel picture and some kind of tree bark. It is a photo holder. Very cool.


This one is a glass jar paperweight. It has shells and even a seahorse she cut out.


This one hangs and is made from corn husks like a pair of suspender. The arms are pretty cool looking, too.


Thank you blupasian!  Smiley

33  Fiestaware Colored Winecork Message Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HSG on: March 05, 2014 01:53:36 PM
What to do with broken china and wine corks? Like being able to reuse wine corks, and this is the latest favorite thing to do with them.


Even made some fruit slice pushpins from the left over grout I had.




Finished it off by painting the sides with matching green paint and then sealing the wood.

Created 3 altered wine corks for blupasian in the Altered Wine Cork Swap. This one was my favorite of the 3.

This one combined her love of turquoise and Halloween:

35  Pop Tab Pendant Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HSG on: February 05, 2014 06:41:54 AM
Saw a pop top pendant on Pinterest and wanted to give it a go.




Think the next one will be a bit fancier. Want to see if I can make it hard for people to tell what it is right away. Smiley

My ATB from cmarion3 arrived, and it is so me. Smiley

Some of the bits described:
old metal buttons, old dresser knob, cap off a favorite beer, sample frame from a friend who works in a frame shop, bits from stash and treasure also from friends shop.









Could not be more thrilled with my ATB. It is both beautiful and vintage, with such thought.
Thank you cmarion3! Smiley
