1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I need breakfast ideas on: February 09, 2011 03:55:53 PM
Ok.  So, I just started a part time job, from like 8-1:30.  And I need some breakfast ideas.  I want something that will hold me for several hours and will be quick.  I like smoothies, with some tofu for extra staying power and bananas and strawberries.  I'm not too crazy about eggs, I only really like them scrambled with a bunch of 'stuff' in them.  But I'm open to ideas.  And I don't want to be eating oatmeal every day, nor do I want to eat pancakes or waffles a lot.  And cereal just gets boring really quick, and honestly, it doesn't hold me that long.  Any suggestions?  I'm really open to anything.  It just needs to be quick and has good sticking power.  Cause I hate to be hungry like, 2 hours later.
2  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Luna The Lunar New Year Rabbit on: February 03, 2011 08:59:09 PM
Since it's the Lunar New Year today ((aka: The Chinese New Year)) and it's the Year of the Rabbit, I decided that I was going to crochet myself a rabbit!

So thus, I made Luna!

She's done in Red Heart, white, black and shocking pink.  She's done in double crochet.  He tail is a cotton ball and her whiskers are mint flavored dental floss.  And she's stuffed with tissues, because I don't have stuffing.  Guess I could've used cotton balls.  Next time I'm using safety eyes.  I haven't tried them before, and I think as far as eye placement go, it'd be easier, and it'd save from the awkward looking eyes.  Personally, I think she resembles a shrunken Lamb Chop.  But still, she was fun!

Here's to the Year of the Rabbit!

3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Discussion and Questions / Safety Eyes? on: November 25, 2010 12:27:58 PM
So, I've got an idea for an amigrumi that I'd like to make at some point, and I'm wondering about using safety eyes. 

1) Are they easy to locate?

2) Can I find them in any craft store? IE: JoAnn's or Michael's

3) Are they easy to use?  How would I use them?  Do you crochet around them?  Or do you just leave a little space and insert them in?

I've never used 'em before.  So all the info you've got would be amazing.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Hufflepuff Scarf: Now with Pattern! on: November 19, 2010 01:09:30 PM
So, I had plans to make this scarf many months ago, but I couldn't figure out how to change colors properly.  But thanks to fantasticmio I learned pretty quickly.  But, since I was going to the "Deathly Hallows Part 1" premier last night, I figured that I better finish the scarf and quickly.  So in a matter of a couple of days. I had a completed Hufflepuff scarf!  And here's the pics!  Ignore the tiredness on my face, because I'm completely exhausted.  And I'm planning on making a hat on my Knifty Knitters with my leftover yarn.  Cause you can't have a scarf without a hat right? Tongue  So pics, yeah...

Thanks for looking! Smiley

5  COOKING / Dessert / Almond Bark vs Melting Discs on: November 07, 2010 08:17:01 AM
Is there a difference between the two?  I plan on making a bunch of the Oreo Balls: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=164704.0 for Christmas to send give to friends and family.  But I just wonder, if there's a difference between the melting discs and the almond bark, in terms of flavor and consistency.  Is one better over the other?
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sunflower! on: November 01, 2010 04:16:30 PM
I made the headband.  Well, I took felt, cut it, and hot glued it on the headband.  That counts right?  Otherwise, I bought the leggings and the yellow shirt.

If I need to post a better pic of the headband I can.

8  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Bumble the Bee on: April 16, 2010 01:06:59 PM
So, I had some gold and black yarn to make a Hufflepuff scarf.  And I have plenty to do so still.  But I decided that I wanted to make a bumblebee out of some of the yarn.  So, in about an hour and half's time or so, I had this little guy created.  Of course it was about 4 days later when I finally got him all stitched together.  I came up with the pattern all on my own.  I'm quite proud of him.  Smiley

So here's so pictures! Smiley

9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I made a macro on: April 12, 2010 07:48:19 AM
Like those kitty ones, you know the "I CAN HAZ A CHEEZEBURGAH!" ones?  But one, am I allowed to share it, and two, where the heck does it go?  Thanks!
10  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / This Hat is not the Hat You're Looking For on: March 15, 2010 06:10:09 PM
Ok, so gonesmithing made a post that she had made a Storm Trooper hat a couple of weeks ago: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336695.0

And I thought to myself...HOW COOL!  I HAVE TO MAKE ONE!  Cause I'm a huge Star Wars nerd and everything.  Seriously, I am.

So this is my attempt.  I didn't want to steal the thunder of her thread with pics of my hat, so I'm making my own thread.  Hope that's ok.

So here's my version of my Storm Trooper hat.  Just a few more details than gonesmithing's.  The mouth piece is slightly off kilter.  But never the less, I'm still proud.  It's my first attempt at crocheting a hat.  And my first attempt at switching colors while crocheting.  I'm extremely proud of it!  Smiley  So, here's some pics!

And yes, I have a lightsaber.  I told you I was a nerd!  XD

Thanks for looking!
