I made vegan chocolate last night!  I've been wanting to make some for a while and my first attempt was a complete mess due to using agave nectar instead of sucanat.

Behold!



The one to the left contains:  Certified organic cocoa butter, certified organic and fair trade cacao powder, certified organic vanilla bean, certified organic sucanat, certified organic acai powder, certified organic hemp seeds.

The one to the right contains:  Certified organic cocoa butter, certified organic and fair trade cacao powder, certified organic sucanat, certified organic maca powder, wildharvested bee pollen.

They may not look the best (I let them sit on the counter to harden rather than putting them in the freezer, I don't know if this has anything to do with it) but they do taste good!

I finished a couple of WIPs from 2011 recently.

We were in desperate need of new dishcloths so I finished a set of 6 of these:



And a donation hat:



There are also a few other things I made for a swap package but I'll wait a while before posting.

I received from atsuko today!  It was a package for the kids.

Felt food:



Anklets with bells on them:





We opened the parcel right before lunch so they only had 30 minutes to wear them before their nap, but I think they're going to love them!  I think I need to make myself a pair for hooping.

Thank you atsuko!

It's been a while since we've crafted.  I wasn't feeling well last week so we mostly watched movies and then we were busy with gymnastics and a nearby indoor gym during the weekend.

But we decorated some plant pots this morning, using some terra cotta pots I picked up at a thrift shop recently, foam, and glue:



Ava's is to the left.  Surprisingly, she wasn't so interested in crafting today and quickly moved on to colouring.  Brahmi on the other hand, was busy cutting the foam sheets and I decorated the pot on the right.

I have something to contribute!

My second go at spinning:



Roving from Arachne Fiber Arts. Plied with Knit Picks' "Stroll Sport"; 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon; blue topaz.  I still haven't set it but wanted to post a photo anyway.

So what turned out to be Love Bugs that we started out a few days ago turned into Monsters and other things...  We used heart-shaped foam for the base, which was purchased at Dollarama.



Left:  Brahmi wanted to cut legs for his bug but ended up cutting numerous bits of construction paper.  We ended up turning them into the shell.  Googley eyes and pipe cleaner make up the rest.

Right:  Brahmi was having fun with the hole puncher!  Googley eyes, feathers, the punched parts of the foam, and a popsicle stick for the mouth.



Left:  I didn't have time to finish the one I started because I was helping the kids, and you can't tell from the photo but I have two layers of the heart-shaped foam with some space between them (I glued little blocks between the hearts).  I then stuck the pink foam wings in the space and was starting to decorate a bit.

Right:  Ava's last "thing."  She was losing interest by this point, other than using lots and lots of glue.  It hadn't finished drying by the time I took the photo.



Left:  Ava was copying what I was doing.  We used glue and glitter on the base, some black bits we found laying around the house, with googley eyes on top, feathers, and pipe cleaner

Right:  My first Love Bug but I didn't have time to finish it.  It looks a little big like a drag queen...  The eyelashes were added with marker and the legs are some glitter paper.



Left: A collaboration between Ava and I!  We covered the big blogs of glue with glitter, added a feather between the eyes, and Ava liked the look of a few popsicle sticks placed horizontally.  I added the teeth.

Right:  This was Brahmi's first experience with using the hole puncher.  Then I had the idea of making a target.  =)

Ok, this is not the most interesting of photos but I ran out of the laundry soap monnie31 gave me in a swap and had to make more.  I need some all-natural soap for my Reiki business anyway...



Made using my own handmade castile soap, borax, washing soda, and lavender essential oil.

I'd like to make the gel kind next time.

We made some turtles yesterday morning!



Mine is the one on the left, Brahmi's is at the top, and Ava's is the one on the right.

We used paper plates, tissue paper, markers, glue, tie dye construction paper, scissors (Brahmi cut some of the toes off so I helped him cut the rest of the hands/feet), and googley eyes.
