3911  COOKING / Dessert / No two shortbread are exactly alike on: December 27, 2007 02:53:31 PM
Well, the cooking forum is the last place I'd ever expect to post!  I don't cook, but I do bake now and again.  I have probably over 100 cookie cutters and I bet I've used fewer than 2 dozen of them... including a set of 6-pointed stars I received as a gift a few years ago.  I had an epiphany that I could use them as a base for snowflakes!  I used two sizes of star, Martha Stewart's shortbread recipe (that I've used for years) and basic royal icing.  I thought they turned out simple and somewhat elegant (you know, for frosted cookies).





Thanks for looking!
3912  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Converting top/down roman blinds to bottom/up? on: December 27, 2007 02:24:30 PM
Wow!  Isn't it weird when no one replies?  And then after you've forgotten all about your post someone does?  Like now.  Wink  I'm making roman blinds (the insulated kind) and have been wondering if it's possible to make them so they go both top down and bottom up.  Any chance of getting a picture of your clever work?  And CONGRATULATIONS on figuring it out all by yourself!

Great job!  I doesn't really even look like a recon.  I'm 36 I think you could wear it in spring/summer with the right nice sandals and an age appropriate top or now with a sweater and leggings and flats or tights and boots for a less casual look.

Ha!  Very creative!  Just a warning that switchblades aren't legal in all states... I don't know how far she's driving and all, but just so she knows.  Pocket knives might be legal everywhere and not considered a "concealed weapon".
3915  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tattoo inspired rain boots on: December 26, 2007 02:13:10 PM
Everyone has such good ideas!  That's what so great about craftster... the benefit of the experience of thousands of helpful people!  After reading these I got to wondering about the vinyl signs that you can have made for business vehicles.  That stuff is definitely weather resistant.  What about other sticker-type things?

Uh-oh!  She looks like she's going to try some serious off-roading with that!  Nice to see road-joy for a change!
3917  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tattoo inspired rain boots on: December 26, 2007 12:42:27 PM
Awesome!  As for paint, first find out if the boot you're going to paint is actually rubber (a natural product made from plants) or some kind of plastic or vinyl.  It's plastic of vinyl you might be able to find a primer that will adhere to it onto which you can paint with acrylic or latex paint.  I think the biggest difficulty will be finding something to hold up the the flexing and stretching of the substrate w/o cracking and giving a place for water to get underneath and start destroying your work.  I wonder if the Krylon spray paint for plastics would work?  You'd not be able to brush it on, but could do stencils.  Would a model building paint of some sort be good for this?  You could likely airbrush that.
3918  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Help! Creative ideas for re-gifting an ugly doll *My Brothers Response on pg on: December 26, 2007 12:35:04 PM
Hahaha!  Awesome!  What a fun pair of siblings you guys are!  Thanks for sharing the unveiling and the story of it with us.  Until the last photo, I had thought that the dolls (and therefore the monster) were MUCH bigger and I wondered how he was going to find room for such a huge thing.  Please post your future re-gifts and also what he does for you.

Happy New Year!
3919  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Varmint Voodoo Doll II on: December 26, 2007 11:32:00 AM
I can finally post this now that it's been delivered!  Turns out my good friend occasionally looks up my projects on craftster so I had to wait.  Good thing I learned about this habit in time!  She has an "issue" with raccoons, so I decided to make her a Varmint Voodoo Doll: Raccoon Edition after having so much fun with Varmint Voodoo Doll: Squirrel Edition (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=210006.msg2250561#msg2250561).


Sorry about the flash, but that's crafting in the winter for ya'!

The shrink plastic pins for this one are all of her cat, Kali, who likes to play tough with the raccoons... through the safety of the glass of the basement window.  Part of my friend's issue with raccoons is her fear that they'll hurt Kali when she's outside. 


I should note that around here raccoons are a nuisance and widely reviled because they wreck people's yards/fountains and hurt pets.

And because now it's a tradition, a shot of my Senior Studio Assistant, Pearl, supervising the photo shoot.



Thanks for looking!

PS Both Varmint Voodoo Dolls were hits with the recipients.  I have a few more ideas for this...

No wonder you're obsessed, those are really cool!  I think the first is my favorite.
