11  COOKING / Dessert / Cadbury Creme Egg Cupcakes w/- Whipped Ganache Frosting on: March 23, 2008 04:35:07 PM
They are exactly as they sound. I love Cadbury Creme eggs and cupcakes have kind of become an obsession lately so I knew what had to be done this Easter.

If you want the recipe you can find it here.


12  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Best Vegetarian Lasagna EVER! on: March 18, 2008 07:38:43 PM
Nope, I don't care what you say. Nothing can top this one. It's amazing!

The recipe can be found on my blog. Here is the post.


I know it takes awhile to prepare but it is totally worth it. Every single person I have made this for, vegetarian or not, has raved about it. Let me know if you do decide to give it a try and tell me what you think!
13  COOKING / Dessert / Carrot, Coconut & Chai Cupcakes w/- Cream Cheese Frosting on: March 17, 2008 09:28:22 PM
I've been making cupcakes a lot lately and these turned out soooooo good. I would love for somebody else to try them and let me know what they think as they were my first attempt at modifying a recipe to my own taste.

I posted the full recipe on my blog. Here is the post.

14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lego Necklace yay!! on: February 24, 2008 03:30:36 PM
OK so I realise this isn't exactly an original idea as there is plenty of Lego jewellery recons on here but I though I would share anyway. I had a few extra pieces left over from my Lego Viking Ship (which I am in love with by the way) so though I may as well put them to good use.

I put a hole through one of the pieces, put a metal ring through it then just used some red anchor thread for the actual necklace. Unfortunately I found I am allergic to the clasp I used to hold it together so I'm going to have to rethink that because I have a wonderful rash on the back of my neck now haha.

The best thing is that all the other pieces can be interchanged around so you can have a new necklace everyday! Fun Fun.

And now because I am a camera whore, an action shot.

I realise that because of my tattoo it all looks a little busy on my chest but I still love it. And yes my earing is a Lego sword. Ah so many uses.
Comments/Criticism welcome.

15  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Random sketches. on: January 17, 2008 08:22:39 PM
Hopefully one day I will be non-lazy enough to fix up any imperfections going on in these (like lining up mr aliens neck with his body) and turn them into proper acrylic on canvas paintings. These are pretty much just ideas in the making at this point.

Mr aliens welcome home party.

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby beanie. on: January 17, 2008 08:12:29 PM
This is ever so lame compared to what all you amazing knitters manage to make on here but I thought I would post it in case there are some really super duper amateur knitters out there like me that can only knit a square/rectangle and feel like giving something apart from a scarf a go. haha.

So pretty much you just knit a big rectangle the size of a beanie doubled over and also enough for the little bits that fold up around the edge if you want that look. Then you just sew it together with a big "wool pin"?? or whatever they are called. Then tie knots over the corners so that you get the little ears and the "round" shape of the beanie. Then if you like sew through the little bits of wool to make the "tassle" like things and sew a little pattern on the front if you like.

I made one kind of like this for myself ages ago. No idea where it went though haha.
17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / piratey paraphernalia *pic heavy* on: January 17, 2008 07:43:26 PM
Here are a few things I made for my sons nursery.

First the mirror. This used to be bright yellow with red firetruck wood cutouts on the bottom. I took a hammer and chisel to the wood cutouts and then sanded it, and man oh man was that yellow paint thick. So much sanding for one very pregnant at the time woman.
I bought the wood letters and cutouts from Spotlight (australian craft supply store) and painted them. Painted the mirror blue and stuck them on. Easy peasy.

I just painted a couple of clipart photos I found on a google search onto a couple of canvases. They are both done with acrylic paint.

And now for my fav. I bought this cupboard off of ebay and then painted the doors and sealed them with high gloss clear spray.

I really need to get him a bookcase for all the things he is accumulating so I will probably paint that to the theme of the room. Thanks for looking! Smiley
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Ouch! Love sure does hurt! *slightly image heavy* on: January 17, 2008 06:15:10 PM
I hope this is where to put this. She does sit around my house proudly. Anyway here she is! My mannequin. I really wish I had a "before" picture. She was dirty and cracked and ugly as all hell.

Anyway this is after a good cleaning in the bathtub, numerous coats of white paint and face detail. The hair i picked up from a toy store (reminds me of a cute Japanese cartoon, i love it!)

This is after I attacked her with much red paint. Notice the heart is on the wrong side. I am infact a doofus. It doesn't matter what colour my hair is I will always remain the blondest of blondes when it comes to common sense. I actually looked at it and went "here is my left hand...heart is on the left...paint it on the left" (duh jade that isn't HER left!) I realised only when she was totally complete.

The finished product. To get the arrow through i had to drill two enormous holes through her making sure my angles were just right. I then shoved it on through and attached the pointed tip. I thought my blood looked way too fake so I got out the hot glue gun and made her limbs look a little more "ripped" I guess you could say. And made all the rest of the blood on her stick up more. Also there is some glue hanging from the arrow tip (which you can't see unfortunately). I just painted all over this with red paint and got a stencil to paint on the "OUCH!" then gave her a top coat of gloss.

She is now at the entrance to my house wearing a pirate hat. I think she freaked out my landlord. YAY!

19  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of Milk! on: January 16, 2008 10:34:42 PM
Not that exciting but thought I would post anyway. It's super hot here in Australia at Xmas time. Especially seen as we made the trip to north QLD to visit my mum. Much to my dismay all of the cute little baby Xmas outfits in stores must be imported from the states or something because they are all for a white Xmas! BOO! Anyway I HAD to dress up my little man for his first Xmas (what's the point of having kids if you can't dress them up?) so I knocked up this quick design and put it on a red singlet. Quick, easy and super cute! Plus much more to my taste than the store bought outfits anyway!

EDIT:Yep it's cross-stitch.
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Mr banana for my little monkey. (first post) on: January 08, 2008 01:39:59 AM
Hi everybody!! *waves*  Grin

I have been lurking for awhile and finally decided to post something. I made this little guy today. He is my first attempt at a soft toy and is completely hand stitched. (which is why the stitching isn't the best haha) I wish i could say i am 8 years old and made this on my school holidays but unfortunately i'm 21 and made this out of the material from a first attempt (gone horribly wrong) at making my 4 month old some banana shorts.  Undecided Never-the-less, i think he is pretty cute so try to be kind. Being crafty in a sewing-like way is very new to me.

Only links atm Sad boo! Must make more posts! Plus photobucket is down and i don't want to type this again. So flickr is it!

Fortuantely the little monkey seemed to enjoy Mr Banana more than he would have enjoyed banana shorts.
