1  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate Chip Cookie Crisis on: October 08, 2008 10:13:04 PM
I've been having some sort of weird phenomenon going on in my oven right now. Might be haunted. I put 12 little balls of chocolate chip cookie dough in on a clean cookie sheet, and they come out really dry, and almost spongy (I really can't think of another way to describe it.) This is the second time I've tried to make these cookies in the last 2 months (with the same recipe I've been using for at least 5 years) and they both turned out the same. The first time I assumed I had just over/under measured some ingreadiant, but I quadruple checked all of the ingrediants before I mixed it today, and they still came out weird. I keep thinking maybe the baking soda went bad (does baking soda go bad?) or something is wrong with my oven, maybe the shortening went bad (I don't know if shortening can go bad either), I don't really know.

I could really use some help on this, I'm starting to loose my kitchen cred.  Wink
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Painting Fabric on: September 16, 2008 04:58:15 PM

So... I found these amazing pants online by Brooklyn Royalty Apparel, and I love them. I'm thinking about attempting something similar, but I was wondering what kind of paint I should use? because I've used a few different kinds of fabric paint before, and I had several problems with it. I'd figured I'd buy some paint and a couple of really cheap pants at a thrift store and try to figure out how to get the rough antique look by trial and error before I go for the real thing, but if you have any ideas on that would also be helpful  Smiley
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / procrastination is hell, and Stretch Magic is the devil on: December 18, 2007 09:31:49 PM
I was making bracelets over the weekend, while I was supposed to be doing homework, and I got so frustrated with the elastic I was using. I couldn't get the knots to stay, the elastic (Stretch Magic) was really slippery. So I wasted a lot of the elastic because the bracelets kept breaking, and it took me twice as long to make them. I didn't have a problem with it at first, but when I called it a night and started up the next day for some reason I couldn't get it to stay.

Anyways, pictures... I know there not fantastic, but all of my friends really liked them.

sorry for the poor picture quality

comments, tips, suggestions?
