1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Engravable Gifts for Geeks on: November 12, 2011 10:38:31 AM
Thanks guys. I bought an extra pocket knife in case I can't think of anything, but I'm liking the dice box idea. I know this wasn't made for gaming, but I'm loving it: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74240021/padauk-jewelrykeepsake-box-tmp20110035

It would be so perfect. It's all gorgeous, and it even has a little tray! Wish it didn't cost $150. Sad

I emailed a company that makes metal dice to ask if they had any blanks, but they said no. That would've been sweeeeeeet!

I am totally at a loss here. For the holidays, I'd like to engrave something for everyone on my gift list. My immediate family was kind of easy as far as knowing which objects I'd like to engrave. My boyfriend is the difficult part.

I thought I might like to engrave a pocket knife for him. I know he'd love it, but in reality, I can't really see him using it.

Does anyone have any ideas? He likes comic books, video games, and tabletop RPGs.

Thanks guys! I feel a lot better now. I can't believe how long I have to wait to eat them, though.
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Pickle Question? on: July 17, 2011 08:18:55 AM
Hello Craftster, it's been a while.

Last night, I made my first ever batch of pickles. I'm really stoked about it, but I looked at them this morning to realize that some of the jars have a rogue pickle sitting above the top of the brine. Some of the pickles are still floating around a little, and will eventually settle, but is this a big deal? Am I being really obsessive compulsive? Or, am I going to give all of my loved ones botulism?

EDIT: I guess I should add that I used the cold or raw pack method, not a recipe where you ferment them.

And thanks for your help in advance!

That is flattering! I love the color, too!

I really wanted to join that sewalong, but I had just made my own jacket. Sad
6  COOKING / Dessert / Grimace Cake! on: September 24, 2010 09:05:18 PM
I meant to post this a few weeks ago. A friend recently did me a rockin' solid and I decided she needed a pretty sweet gift. She *loves* Grimace so I made her a special cake. It is (ironically) vegan.

I got the recipe here: http://theppk.com/recipes/dbrecipes/index.php?RecipeID=124

The frosting is the vanilla butter cream from VCTOTW with a lot of purple food coloring.

He was delicious! Cheesy

This is GENIUS! I rolled my own for about five years (I quit last year). If I saw one of these at the time, I would've totally bought one!

This rocks!

I'm obsessed with Dr. Who *and* matryoshka dolls so I'm having one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that moments. I'd be so stoked to receive these in a swap!

I am clicking THIS ROCKS!
