1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: OWS Gallery and Discussion Rounds 116, 117, 118 on: July 26, 2015 12:07:55 PM
I received a book from scarlet_nights a couple of days ago.  The Back-Country Kitchen has been on my Amazon wish list for some time now and given the camping season, I'm happy to have it in my house!  Thanks so much!

So it turns out it was the certificate for my culinary arts program that had arrived, not my book  I think the book would have been more exciting.  I do have the Deepak Chopra one, it's good!

Flygirl's package was sent out today, I hope the baby enjoys it!

Oooh, those books intrigue me!  I received a notification that my book is at the post office, can't wait to pick it up!

The aviator hat for flygirl is all done but I've had long 12-hour shifts today and yesterday and the post office was closed by the time I was done.  I'll send it out tomorrow though.

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a great week.  =)

I was hoping to be done flygirl's hat already but things came up and it's still a work in progress.  As soon as I hit the reply button, it's what I'll be working on.  It should still be sent off on time.

Hey everyone, I haven't been able to swap in a while so I'm excited about this one.  I'm hoping to get started of flygirl's hat this weekend.  =)

I claim flygirl88 for the crochet aviator hat.

This is my first claim 1/0/0 due July 21.


Hi everyone!  My name is Jessica and I live in Northern Ontario, Canada with my two kids and German Shepherd.  

Likes:  Nature/Outdoors, Cooking, Energy Healing, Camping, Reading.  If possible, please consider using natural fibres for projects (hemp, cotton, linen, wool, etc).  Thrifted materials are totally fine as well.  In terms of colours, I especially love any that have the burnt/brown tone to them or that have been dyed naturally with plants.  Shades of greys are right up my alley too.  Also, I'm finding undyed (but still coloured) wools to be ultra-appealing lately.

I don't tend to gravitate much towards very bright/neon, acrylic yarns or really bold patterns.

Have a look at my Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/dreadlocklove/craftster-swap-wishlist/ and Etsy https://www.etsy.com/ca/people/gatheredroots/favorites?ref=pr_faves lists for inspiration.  Note that even though I'm posting examples of the items I'm wishing for, it doesn't have to be exact replicates.  I'm just giving an idea for the styles I enjoy.

7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Curried garbanzo wrap on: June 19, 2015 10:12:53 AM
I've been feeling that call to eat vegan again and so may be around a little more.  Smiley

Browsing Pinterest, I came across this and drooled:

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/108719778481311837/

...then made my own version:



The process is simple.  Thin down some tahini in water or almond milk.  Add a generous amount of curry powder, and also some sea salt and freshly ground pepper.  Mix.  I chose to sweeten with some maple syrup.  Chop some carrots, spinach, scallions and yellow pepper, then add to the tahini.  Don't forget to add in a can of rinsed and drained chick peas.  Make sure your seasoning tastes right then either start eating right away or make a sandwich.  I made a wrap using some paleo coconut wraps I bought in a local shop recently.

Just made lunch.  Israeli couscous with poached egg. Pork belly, spinach, pine nuts, goat cheese, shallots, onion, garlic, lemon juice and zest, and spices.

It was delicious!
