So when I started this project it was totally going to be something else, but in the end it turned into a photo collage of my and my boyfriend and our cats! Sorry the picture is kind of messed because of the flash, there was no avoiding it, without the flash it was blurry and colorless!
These are two projects I did a while ago. One is just a tube top from an old T-shirt, nothing amazing. The other is a bag made from a woodstock tee that didn't fit my boyfriend. It's nothing amazing either, but I absolutely love it!
I made this turtle about a year ago and gave it to my boyfriend's little baby cousin. I took a picture of it, but I don't know why I never posted it. Anyways, it was totally improvised, I don't know how I even pulled it off. I also made a cool octopus, but I have no pictures and I gave it to another small child. Anyways, here's the turtle!
This is a random dress I made a few days ago. I might have the opportunity to sell my stuff at a little boutique nearby so I'm working on my skills since I've never actually had any training! Anyways, I love the pattern of the fabric... I'm a sucker for patterns. Sorry for the bad pic, I couldn't get a good one and no one was around to take one for me. C&C much appreciated!
So I had never made bowls or anything out of records before but I have a ton of records that are not worth listening to, so I decided to experiment. I had the idea to make a clock out of a record. Anyways, it's a little rough, I'd like to try again and there are somethings I would change, but for an experiment it's pretty cool. Sorry about the pictures, the flash sort of washes out the colors. Comments and criticisms would be awesome! Check it out here:
I warped the record in the oven, made a sticker to cover the original record label, bought the actual clock part from Michaels, made my own hands out of cardstock and glued them on and so on. The numbers I made with polymer clay, but my oven must be way hotter than it says it is because they burnt within 10 minutes and turned all black so I painted them... as you can see I already messed up the paint on the 8. Oh well, like I said, it was just an experiment! Thanks for looking!
This is probably the easiest, most tasty veggie soup ever. And you can tweak it according to what you like. Unfortunately, I don't have any exact measurements, so just add some, taste, add more, taste, or whatever.
When I make it I generally use: 4 potatoes 2 yams 1 large onion 1 - 3 bell peppers (whichever color you prefer) 4 beets 5 carrots 4 tomatoes
Those are the ones I always use, you can pretty much use whichever others you like. Asparagus, zucchini, beans, peas, are all good. Peel the beets first and chop them into little cube-ish pieces. Boil them while you chop all the rest up because it takes a long time to get them nice and soft. Now peel (if necessary) and chop all the veggies into little cubes (we'll say about 1 inch cubes). Preheat the oven to about 350 degrees (F). Then put all the veggies (drain the beets and include them too!) into a big bowl (or two bowls because there's a lot of veggies). And drizzle with olive oil, then add seasonings. I usually use rosemary, thyme, basil. Toss the veggies in the seasonings and then spread them out on cookie sheets. Don't worry about making it a single layer or anything, they can be kind of heaping. Then throw them in the oven for 1 hour to get nice and soft. When they're almost done, put a really big pot on the stove and put either water or vegetable stock in and get it heating up. You'll have to experiment with how much you want, but don't use too much. When your hour is up, take the veggies out and put about 3/4 (this you'll experiment with too) into the blender/food processor and get them all mushed up, then add to the pot. Finally, add the chunks that you have left into the soup and mix it all up. We usually add some hot sauce because it gives more flavor, but you'll have to figure out how you like it best. Anyways, it makes tons of soup, and it's really good leftover! I hope my recipe doesn't suck too bad, just play with it and enjoy!
Hi everyone. I've been on craftster for a couple weeks now just reading other people's stuff, commenting, getting inspired and so on. I usually make clothes and sometimes stuffed animals, but I decided I wanted to try my hand at jewelry. So here are my first few earrings I made. Hope you like!
