2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cheap & Easy Punch on: December 10, 2004 09:11:10 AM
OK, so last year I got the task of making punch for a work function. I had no clue, but made it up!! I made it again this year & both years everyone has loved it!! So here it goes:

1  bottle of Sprite(2L)
1  bottle of Lemonaide(2L- I like minute maid)
1  Bottle of Fruit Punch(2L- I prefer the minute maid, but Hawiian Pucnh works, too)
Frozen Fruit

Mix the bottles in a large punch bowl, add ice & frozen fruit. And now you have punch!

Seriously people LOVED it. You don't need the frozen fruit, but I think it adds to it, so it's not just like you opened up bottles. I buy these bags of fruit at Sam's Club for like 7 or eight dollars. Or if you have fruit around, just cut it & freeze it, it helps to keep it cold. I bet it would be great with some vodka or rum, but haven't tried it like that yet(no alchohol at work Wink).
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / xmas knitting kit on: November 17, 2004 07:31:50 PM
so I had this kinda want to learn to knit & I kinda had this idea for a xmas present I would get my mom & sister some knitting stuff & my ultimate goal would be for the three of us to learn to knit togther. I thought it might be a cool activity as I don't spend as much time with my mom as she would like & neither does my sister. So my prob is that I have no clue what to get to start knitting. I was thinking I'd get each of them a stitch'n'bitch book, one would gt the new one & the other the original, but I am clueless as to what needles or yarn or other accessories one needs to knit-it's one of the few crafts I haven't yet at least tried to do. So any suggetsions would help me out a ton!!!
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Cookie swap? on: November 12, 2004 06:57:14 AM
Am I crazy or did I see a cookie swap for like a day? I got super excited & when I went back to sign up it was gone. Now it's possible that in my crazed state(ahhhh, work) I may have invented this one in my own imagination, but I'm hoping not cuz then I will really be worried about my mental health.
5  Texas / Texas: Central / Austin City Limits Festival? on: September 13, 2004 10:09:54 PM
Hey there,
I was just wondering if anyone was planning to go the festival & needed cheap tickets.
My Boyfreind & I were going to travel down there, but have had to cancel for health reasons.
We have 2 tickets & our friends are still going & could hand deliver them, so no shipping costs would be required!
Please pm me if interested!!
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Paint on a dry erase board? on: September 03, 2004 04:37:19 PM
I bought one of those half cork/ half dry erase boards for work & I wanted to pretty it up before I take it, what I'm wondering is if anyone has tried to paint any little embellishments onto a dry erase board? I'm wondering if paint holds on it & what kind of paint(acrylic, craft paint, spray paint) or if I would be better off with sickers or something. If anyone has any bright ideas, please let me know!! Thanx!
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / As Seen On TV on: September 03, 2004 10:44:33 AM
I've seen a few interesting commercials lately & was wondering if ayone had tried them. One was the Ready Strip paint & varnsih remover, the other was a cold heat soldering tool. They both LOOK easy & convienent, I'm wondering if they actually are!!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / grommits? on: May 03, 2004 10:56:39 AM
Hey there!
I have a few purse/bag projects that I want to try to using grommits, but as I never have before I was wondering if anyone has any advice? I also have no clue as to what sort of tools I would use. I'm not sure where to buy them, but I'm sure i'll come up with a place. I'm looking to use large grommits, not tiny. Thanks in advance!
I tried to search for this, but came up with nothing so if there is already a thread regarding this, please forgive me! Smiley
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Klutz books on: February 27, 2004 10:12:45 AM
I don't know if anyone has used these, but there is a line of kids books called KLUTZ. The books are all craft & activty related. SOme of they're craft ones are awesome & they come with some supplies. The reason I bring this up is that I just saw a( I think new) Embroidery book. The pictures are awsome & it's easy to read & understand cuz it's written for kids Wink. All their stuff is good, but anyone wanting an embroidery book should really check it out!
10  COOKING / Dessert / Ridiculously easy & good peanut butter bars on: December 10, 2003 12:24:24 PM
Ok, these seriously are the best things in the world. They are great for holiday time to take to parties or work or whatever. People freak out at how good they taste and they are so easy to whip up. I usually keep the ingrediants on hand, so I can make them in a hurry if I need to! So here it goes:

1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup chunky peanut butter
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 box of cinnamon graham crackers, crushed (about 11/2 cups)      
1 12oz bag of chocolate chips

Melt butter in a large saucepan. Remove from heat & add vanilla & peanut butter & mix well. Add the powdered sugar & graham crackers. Stir until combined, it will be quite stiff. Pat into an ungreased 9x13 pan. Melt the choco chips ( in the microwave or put  a bowl of a pan of simmering water), spread over the peanut butter mixture. Fridge for at least one hour.( I don't always have an hour, so I've found putting them in the freezer  til I have to leave works just as well!)

I use cinnamon grahams but regular is good, also you don't have to use both kinds of peanut butter, that's just what I like. I also use really good choco chips( Ambrosia are my favorite lately), but any will do. These are rich & delicious!
