Help needed. I made a batch of choc peanut butter fudge out of frosting and pb (duh) but the frosting was too dark and rich, and I can't stomach the fudge on it's own. I want to make fudge chunk cookies, but can't find a good recipe. Does anyone have a good one? My Google-fu isn't working today Sad

Do something like these sugar cookie bowls and fill them with the fudge

I am working on making prayer (blessing) flags inspired by these,
http://theprayerflagproject.blogspot.com/
I am trying to mostly work them as if they were art journal pages, problem is I love the amazing colors in calico material I have found in Fat Quarters (each 18x21" quarter makes 6 flags) but they are not so easy to write, draw and paint on.  I have decided to buy a few yards of white calico so the weight will be the same and alternate the flags from painted and drawn art journal ones and simple colored ones with one or 2 words on them like "have hope" or "Enjoy Life" done in paint, embroidery or bleach pen.

When I get my first long strand done and Halloween out of the way I am going to have a prayer flag making party where everyone brings 1 fat quarter and I supply the art supplies and ribbon to hang them.  It would be a party for at least 6 people and each person would make 6 simple flags and trade them out til they have one of each color... you could have more but it is a bit of a pain.

I am also hoping to make at least 5 strands of them mostly out of the simple colored ones and one light one in the middle with a more detailed blessing for each person

thanks for all the congratulations Smiley I am getting back into "normal" life slowly as i'm feeling less sick and have a few things to post when I can get on the computer (instead of on my phone) and upload the pics.

I've been laughing along with the fig jam revelation. I too didn't realise it was only Aussie and its been making me giggle and my husband thinks I'm a little crazy laughing at my phone.

trina--I love the prayer flag project!  Thinking of having some of my friends over to do a party as well...I have been stamping words on plain fabric and then stitching them onto the background fabrics...I am working on a sea themed one now with batiks that remind me of the ocean...

underthemountain--hot pepper jelly is a favorite one of mine...made from jalepanoes...you don't need a lot and you can make red and green---I give them as gifts each Christmas as hostess gifts and it is the most requested item I make!
Spread on a cracker with cream cheese--oh yum...even kids like it! Cheesy

Love the prayer flag project, trina! I can't wait to see the ocean prayer flag, always. I have been wanting to make a flag for the OMA project:

http://theprayerflagproject.blogspot.com/2012/07/call-to-artists-prayer-flags.html

But am having trouble translating my future hopes and dreams into a flag. I think I have an idea, but I'm running out of time to execute it.

And hot pepper jelly over cream cheese is one of my absolute faves. Now I'm hungry!

mama24boyz received the shirts I sent her on Friday so I can finally share the pictures with you guys!  (it was one of the items on my August mini list!)


Here they are!  They are freezer paper stenciled and sport Link's strapping on the front and his shield on the back.  I even got to use some of my silver fabric paint!  Weee!

Here's more on it:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=413917.0

I got to try pepper jelly a couple weeks ago at the indoor farmer's market.  The one I tried was a Merlot flavor.  It was really good!  My husband and I bought a beer flavored one and used it on chicken for my birthday party last weekend.  It was soooo good!  Guess I have a new canning endeavour to try now!  I love canning apricot jam for the sole purpose of using it to cook with on apricot chicken.  Mmmm!!!

Wow, it sounds like you really have a lot on your plate right now. Hope things get a little less hectic soon. Smiley   
Thanks! I hope so too!

mmm... love a good apricot jam! And I love love love a good pepper jelly too! Unfortunately cooking is not one of my skill sets, so I am super leery of making my own, but am always happy when my friends make some! Smiley

Have any of you successfully dyed paper (cardstock weight) with coffee? I made a couple of cards (using Micron pens) and then managed to spill coffee over parts of them  Angry  I am not quite willing to give up on them (since I was actually quite happy with how they were looking) and thought that maybe I could salvage them if I made it look intentional. I have used coffee to die paper before, but it was paper weight and prior to drawing on it... Any thoughts or suggestions?
