11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / The Worst Idea Ever Concieved Involving Otter Pops & Shaved Ice on: July 05, 2005 03:25:05 PM
I was sitting at home a few days ago when I got a craving for a sno-cone. Not having syrup or an ice shaver, though, I was like, "Darn."
For my birthday, a friend of mine got me 265 otter pops. I figured that if I shoved some ice in a blender and chopped it up for a bit and then poured unfrozen otter pop juice on top, it would be the most genius thing I had ever accomplished, ever.
It satified my craving, I suppose, but I think the recipe needs some tinkering if anyone is going to take my almost-genius recipe seriously. Here's what I have so far, though. Try it outtttt.

1. Put two cups of ice into a blender (or if you're gangster enough, you will have yourself an ice shaver).
2. Press the "pulse" button and keep blending until the ice is fine. You might have to stir it up a few times.
3. Use four or five same-flavored otter pops and pour on top.
4. Add about a half a teaspoon or so of sugar, just for good measure.
5. Eat it, really really fast.

More trouble than it's worth? I think yes. If you've got otter pops laying around, though, and nothing to do with them, it's worth a shot.  Cheesy
12  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / My ballet-ish Converse! on: August 14, 2004 12:19:32 AM
I had some Converse low-tops laying around that I got at Goodwill for three bucks and they were a bit too small, so I wasn't afraid to potentally injure them.

And, voila! Sorry for the bad picture above, my digital camera isn't working so I had to scan it. It really does look cool in person. Just weave it around your leg and tie a pretty little bow in back. Use cool ribbon!! But I guess you can always change it if you wanted to.
Have fun!  Cheesy
13  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Yogurt Lid Picture Frame! on: August 12, 2004 02:16:19 AM
I noticed a few days ago how stunningly beautiful the lids for Dannon yogurt are. I just couldn't throw something so gosh darn lovely away, so I made this fine picture frames:


I think that they would look just snazzy up against a wall.

And now, for a really lame tutorial:

[1]Eat yogurt.
[2]Take the lid and wash it off. Make sure to carefully scratch off the expiration date that they printed on the lid.
[3] I used pictures out of magazines, but you can also print something off Google, use some of your art, or grab some photos. So, find whatever it is you want to be in your yogurt lid.
[4] Put the lid on what you want and trace around it with a pencil so you have a vague idea of the size the picture will be in the lid. Then, do some slight chopping to make it fit into the lid just right.
[5] Find some thin cardboard (Priority Mail boxes work great!) and do the same thing you did in step four, except with the cardboard. Trimtrimtrim, and soon you will be able to pop it right into it's place to secure your picture.

I sure hope that makes sense, I'm horrible at directions. It's not nearly as hard as I may have made it sound... Anywho, attaching adhesive to the back allows you to stick em to a wall (as if you need me telling you that...).  Cheesy
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Marshmallow Peep Necklace! on: July 25, 2004 10:27:36 PM
I can't imagine many of you have four month-old marshmallow peeps laying around, but just in case you do, you can make this super duper easy necklace. All I did was poke a hole through it's head, then put the chain through. Although the peep was pretty hard already, I put two coats of clear nail polish on it.
The most common comment I have recieved has been, "Oh my god, that is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen!". It's super!  Cheesy
