I made this just in time for the bridal shower today. My Nephew's fiance, Felicia. I hope she likes it. Her wedding colors are red & black and the fabric has Love, Friendship, Forever etc. all over it.

23  Another Apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Just as I am on: August 18, 2009 11:20:44 AM
I made this one for another friend - they always get the firsts - I make my mistakes on them, then sell the ones that I corrected.  This would also fall into the category of recycled.  The overalls are from a thrift store.

Thanks for looking and all cc's are welcome!

24  Apron I made for a friend in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Just as I am on: August 14, 2009 04:38:11 PM
I was talking to a friend about my plans to make and sell aprons. She told me what she would like in an apron. I surprised my friend with an apron, using her specs. (size - flap on the front to dry your hands w/a pocket behind the flap for recipes). When she got it in the mail she was thrilled. There is nothing like a surprise package, to brighten one's day.

Thanks for looking. All comments and criticisms are welcome!

25  Chicken & Veggie stir fry in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Just as I am on: February 08, 2009 04:41:21 PM
This is a remake of a recipe my friend created.
It was quick, easy & very good.

Chicken and Veggie stir fry

3 boneless skinless chicken breast

Mix together:
6 TB of low sodium soy
6 TB Apple Juice
2 ts of minced garlic (in a jar)
1/2 ts black pepper (if you don't want it hot-reduce this)
2 TB sugar
2 TB rice vinegar

Slice the chicken, add it to the marinade above. Let it set for about 15 minutes or so. Cook the chicken in a hot skillet, pour marinade into a saucepan, stir in the cornstarch. Cook the bag of frozen veggies and rice (per package directions)until tender. When the chicken was done, add 1/2 cup water to the fry pan, using a wooden spoon to scrape the pan for all the goodies. Then add the chicken water mixture to the marinade cornstarch mixture and cooked it for about 3 min after it comes to a boil.
Combine everything together. Due to the fact the veggies were microwaved and not stir fried it did not seem to be flavorful enough. So I added about 1/2 ts of ground ginger. It added the perfect kick. I might only add 1/4 ts next time. And there will definitely be a next time.

26  Re: Tiny Homes (like Tumbleweed) in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by Just as I am on: February 08, 2009 04:29:19 PM
I love the Tiny house idea!

I bought a 2 story barn thru Home Depot. My intent was to sell my crafts out of it. But it really would make a cute place to live. Here is a photo   

The barn measures 16 x 18. Under the stairs would be the perfect place to install a small kitchenette. I have seen a stove, refrigerator and sink combo appliance. (here is a link to show you what I am talking about  http://www.nextag.com/sink-refrigerator/search-html )

I finished the inside of the downstairs with hardwood floors, insulation, drywall and electric up and down. I also built a front porch and put in a turbine vent upstairs. All I have left upstairs is to finish the walls and ceiling. 

I don't remember the total cost but maybe $10,000 and they installed the basic barn.

I wouldn't mind living in it.

I love the furniture you are checking out. Do you own the land you want to put this on? Where do you live. Does it get cold?

Let me know how this works out.
