41  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Craft Shells Necklaces on: March 28, 2014 07:41:31 AM
Found this huge bag of tinted craft shells, and grabbed them for a mosaic project. Still have lots left over, so decided to make some jewelry.

Here is the first necklace

Second one

Like the way they look together, too.

Thanks for checking them out. Smiley
42  COOKING / Dessert / Hamentashen: Purim Cookies 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.
    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

43  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fiestaware Colored Winecork Message Board 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.
44  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Altered Wine Cork on: March 03, 2014 11:38:50 AM
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:

45  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pop Tab Pendant Necklace 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
