1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Godspell - Prepare Ye! on: October 27, 2012 01:40:11 AM

There is a scene in the film version from 1973 with Victor Garber as Jesus that has this beautiful shot. It's right after the song "O Bless the Lord My Soul" and during the scene of Beatitudes. Judas says " Blessed are ye... When men shall persecute you and revile you... and say all manner of evil against you... .... falsely.". The camera changes focus from David Haskell as Judas/John The Baptist and back to Jesus again.. and there's this look on his face that I've always felt moved by. It's the first time in the movie where you feel the "walking on eggshells" feeling of the inevitable betrayal. He tries to shake it off, and jests about it with the others. But after that, it's never quite the same. The first  half of the movie has that happy, upbeat feeling to it.. and it's intermittently bitter-sweet after this scene.

I'll admit. I am a HUGE fan of both Stephen Schwartz and Victor Garber. I remember watching this movie as a tiny little child. I drew pictures of Victor Garber as Jesus when I was too young to know who he was. I'm actually going as this character for Halloween this year. Curly hair, Superman Shirt, Suspenders, everything.

I am so proud of this piece. It makes me so happy to know that I made it.

I have plans to send prints to both Victor Garber and Stephen Schwartz. I want them both to have a copy.

This was the first piece I had done in over a year (outside of school) when I did the original version of this. I was in the worst funk of my life, and this is the first thing that brought me out of it.

I live a Godspell-Apprecation life and proud of it <3
2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Caprine Dictatorship on: May 11, 2010 12:35:05 PM
So, after seeing the Goat Hanger I made for the apartment, a friend of my husband decided it would be HILARIOUS to make a triptych of goats dressed as dictators. And I just HAD to jump on it.

First, we have Mussolini, who ended up a sheep at the request of my husband. Next we have Stalin, and on the end, we have Hitler... in lederhosen. With a beer stein. XD

Oh, the fun one can have with artistic license.
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Portrait of a Goat: Caprine Interior Decoration on: May 10, 2010 04:47:11 PM
I figured this kindof went into "Art" rather than "Craft,"and even though it's to decorate my apartment with, I still didn't feel it fit in with interior design. So here it is.

My husband and I LOVE goats. And I mean LOVE them. And we have this inside joke about "fancy" goats.. and how amusing it would be to see a goat in a waistcoat, tophat, and monacle..

So, since I just graduated college, and I have time off, I'm redecorating our pitiful excuse for an apartment. Starting with the walls. They're white, and bare, and boring.. and I just don't want it anymore... so, I picked up a piece of foam board I had left over from another piece I made to hang up (which I may post later. Don't know yet.).. and I started drawing.

It came out better than I expected, and was drawn entirely freehand. Comments welcome and appreciated! Cheesy
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Easy Delicious Dorm breakfast bowl :) on: November 08, 2008 04:15:08 PM
So, here I am in my studio apartment.. out of clean dishes and craving something from Ihop. Also, as a college student I'm broke as a joke. So, it just so happens my fiance and I bought several boxes of complete pancake mix from Target (because I make biscuits and pancakes with them all the time). Then a lightbulb came up over my head.

I took a Glad Bowl (the microwaveable kind) and put in 1/2 cup of Complete Pancake Mix (the Buttermilk kind) and 3/4 cups of water and cooked it for 2 minutes on high in the microwave. Then, I turned over the bowl onto a paper plate and stuck some butter and syrup on it..

and voila! Pancake Cake in 3 minutes Smiley I tried it a few different ways, mixing the water and batter different ways and this was the best kind that came out.

Here's a picture of it. It's not a great picture, but it's there.. and It's absolutely yummy Smiley I bet with some of that ready-to-eat bacon or sausage that would be great for an easy dorm breakfast!

It fills you up about the equivalent of 3 or 4 pancakes, so it's a nice solid meal in itself. You can double it or halve it as your stomach desires. I know this is nothing special, but I thought it was a neat idea and figured I'd share it!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Sheep pillow/plushie on: March 23, 2008 05:40:37 PM
Okay.... so my father-in-law is a sick, sick man... and he has this shirt:


So, I made him a sheep plushie pillow for when he's working nights and only gets to nap in one of the vacant rooms (he's a doctor)...

It's all done with fleece. The back is zebra striped fleece. I must say. Fleece is EXCRUCIATINGLY HARD to appliqu.  The sheep itself is stuffed with polyfill fiber, as well as the pillow. Comments appreciated Smiley

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Curtain into Apron (pic small ._.) on: March 23, 2008 04:21:23 AM
so, here's the only pic I have of it, and it's crappy because I had to use my cell phone..

I used a black curtain I got at goodwill and some scrap quilting fabric I had to make the appliques.

I used the part of the curtain you hang it from as the top, and I used the bottom hem to re-hem the sides and extend into ties. I embellished the hems with different stitches I had on my machine. I'm sorry I don't have more pics. Hopefully the pic of the applique is pretty enough Cheesy

p.s. "L" is for Lisa, my mother-in-law. I made it for her as a belated christmas present/easter present. I was planning to make it for her for christmas, but I got sick and then I got bogged down with school, and then sick again.. so it's taken me till now to make it. I hope she likes it Smiley
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Bamboo Thread on: March 22, 2008 02:03:13 AM
Lately I've been working with Bamboo fabric and yarn, and I was wondering if anybody knew where I could get bamboo thread. I'd like to make stuff that's 100% bamboo, and I've been having a terribly go of it trying to find it. Whenever I google "Bamboo Thread", I just get "Bamboo x-count thread SHEETS"... and ... that's not what I'm looking for :-p

8  UNITED STATES / Nevada / Where are all of you crafty people hiding? on: March 01, 2008 03:17:47 PM
i can't seem to find a darned one of you around here. *sigh*

We should plan a get-together or something. PM me if you're interested Smiley I'd really like to meet some more crafty people around here.
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Teenage Brother in laws = Christmas Gift Deficiency on: November 15, 2007 07:35:38 PM
Okay.. so, I've got some good ideas for Mom and Dad: Scarf for dad, along with a stuffed sheep for all his scotsman joke ejoyment. A crocheted sweater for mom, and possibly a lace scarf.

But I've got two teenage brothers in law and I have no idea what to make for them.

Brother 1: 18 years old: bodybuilder, lifeguard, into rap music and some rock, into computer stuff..kindof a jock..

Brother 2: 16: computer geek, introverted, likes hunting sports, kindof a bad-ass nerd, if you get what I mean.

Any ideas?

One I saw that made me laugh, cause it's kindof inappropraite.. but I thought about making these for one or both of them : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73948.0

They both make jokes about that kind of stuff anyway.

So yeah. Help! CheesyCheesy:D:D:D

Also, I can knit, crochet, sew, and craft polymer clay stuff.
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Chicken-mushroom-olive-cheesey goodness! on: October 08, 2007 03:52:41 PM
2 cups chopped chicken, raw
1/2 - 1 can black olives (halved or chopped doesn't matter)
1 cup mushrooms (or more if you like them a lot)
1/2 cup Parmesean (shredded or grated. Doesn't matter)
1/2 cup Mozarella
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Italian seasoning (or thyme, rosemary, oregano, and dried onion)

Heat up the oil in a skillet. Add the chicken and stir occasionally until cooked. Add the mushrooms and olives and let them simmer in the olive oil until tender. Then, add the cheese and let it melt.

Then, eat it like that.. put it over pasta.. put it on bread.. It's delicious Cheesy:D:D:D:D
