Lol. Glad you are reaping the good things from the kiwi and not caught a cold.
The cake I wrote about takes minutes to make and can be ready in an hour if you are in a hurry. Just put the crust in the freezer til you're ready to pour the cheese in then put it all in the freezer for about an hour til it holds its shape.
Here is a picture of the cake before I add any fruit or decoration on it:

22  Re: Thanksgiving Turkey Tutorial in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Jinjeet Phoenix on: December 06, 2010 01:00:46 AM
Thank you again Sweets! Thanksgiving was at my house this year and your recipe will now be a forever one!!! I took a quick picture before my BFF carved it.

Pathetic looking turkey but it came out delicious. (I used a huge amount of white wine inside before I stuffed it. lol. Came out great)
Thank you!

I finally made my first batch. I've had this bookmarked since you first posted. I never did find cheap bottles so I used a used bottle and made a cups worth. Beans are so expensive here that I'm hoping this comes out okay. (Third bottle of Vodka...wonder where the other two went since hubby and I don't drink it.)
Here goes, we'll see next month. Thank you for posting this.

3 days and already the vodka is turning brown. Can't wait.

Sorry for the delay.

I hope you can see how it is fulled with diapers, sheets and so on.  I just hang them on the crib since it's convenient for us.
Please excuse the unstaged picture.  I really wanted to post the picture sooner.

25  Re: Baby Bather- easy to make, great gift- Now with How-To!! (scroll down) in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 10, 2010 11:55:39 AM
Thank you Jutybo.  I didn't make one I've made 5 of them.  I started off with one then my DIL wanted more so I just made 4 more and am about to make another 2 for her sister who just had a baby and thought I'd give 2 to a friends daughter who just had a little girl (decided that today when I saw towels on sale at the supermarket.)
I did what you wrote and took a small dinner plate for the hole, overlocked the part I cut out then made a small hem in it.  Put Velcro on the two sides at the "cut". I'm sure I could make bias tape but the few times I've tried to sew it onto something it was awful so this is my compromise. It didn't fray (thank goodness) cause of the hem.
I hope I succeed in posting small pictures of them.

26  Fleecy Goodness for new baby in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 30, 2010 02:21:53 AM
I've been having so much fun crafting for my new GS.  DIL received a fleece vest for the baby and hinted that she wanted more so I simply used hers as a model, cut it out on a used cereal box, cut it out with one side a larger neck line and put on a picture on the front.  Easy, simple, fast and he now has 4 new vests for the winter.
Right one is the original.

Close up of the new vest.  Picture is a recon from an old shirt.

Here is the not too pleased young man wearing a fleece hat I sewed laying on a fleece blanket (I just sewed two layers of different colored fleece together, turned it right side out and over stitched the whole thing.  Another fast easy project and everyone loves it.

Better picture of the blankets.

If anyone has any questions or comments, please.

27  When a project goes wrong Craftsterize\improvise From Bumper to blanket in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 30, 2010 02:00:19 AM
Being an over zealous grandmother got me into trouble this time.  I found two super soft blankets and decided to make my own crib bumpers. I loved the shade of brown and light blue so I cut them into strips, overlocked them together, made one long strip for the top, added a zillion Velcro strips to attach it to the crib. Then showed it to my BF and was told that synthetic bumpers and very fuzzy ones at that were taboo for babies. I thought it came out great.  Oh well...

And I was so pleased with myself...(being a little winnie here)

So I took the thing apart at the length. Cut it into long strips

Sewed  that sucker back up.

Finally, a finished super soft baby blanket.  Who cares if it's a little big?  It's great on the floor also.

Long story short.  I sewed a baby blanket.
(You never learn if you don't try.)
Comments always welcome.  (Or am I the only person that has to do things multiple times.lol)

28  Diaper Stacker\Storage in Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies by Jinjeet Phoenix on: May 30, 2010 01:28:42 AM
Being a new grandmother brings new things into my life constantly and it's wonderful.  My kids got us a used crib for the new GS so of course I've had to go craft for the new addition to the room to our family.  In order to have some place to put the new diapers, crib sheets, shoulder bibs, flannel blankets, etc I had to come up with something.  Then I remembered that I had one of these for my eldest.  It's been years since I've seen one so with help from the internet I kind of winged how to make one.  The only thing I would change\add is some type of tape\ribbon on the front seam going across at the top because the tension from the weight exposes the thread. This now hangs on the new crib.

Just after sewing them.

Close up of the design I copied from the bed bumper.  I cut out felt pieces and just glued them on.

I hope it looks right.

29  Re: Alice In Wonderland Costumes in Costumes: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 13, 2009 11:08:13 PM
Thank you for your comments!!!
MissDisney, you are so right.  The Disney version is very child friendly.  (For want of a better phrase.lol)  When I heard the name of the play this year I went and took a look at my book..lol it was printed in 1948 and I knew that I couldn't use that so they arranged to bring me the film so I could "brush up" my memory.
This is a tradition (children's day) that has been going on for now for over 60 years and we are really trying to keep it going and there have been some serious "bumps" along the way.  I love being a part of it!!!
Of course we don't do the exact thing from the movies, just the cutesy style.
I forgot to post a picture of The Twiddles with a special thanks to the Craftster member that sent the patterns.  Bless her!!!

And because I love the way this guy love to "ham" it up when he came to try it on:

These were made with  Simplicity pattern 2785

30  Alice In Wonderland Costumes in Costumes: Completed Projects by Jinjeet Phoenix on: June 10, 2009 03:40:27 AM
Every year we have a children's day.  One of the highlights is a play which usually is based on a film from Walt Disney.  This year we did Alice in Wonderland.  There is a friend and myself that does the costumes each year.  This year I asked for helphere and it wasn't slow in coming.  Thank you Craftster and everyone that helped. A special thanks to the wonderful member that sent me the patterns for the Tweedle's, Alice and the Queen.  It is all non profit and we all donate our time and skills in order to give the kids a special day all of their own.
Nuf' babblin' and on to the pictures.  All of the patterns we used were altered to our needs.
This is Alice (costume made with Simplicity pattern 2785

I love this picture.  This is a pratice run for Alice "falling" into the hole.

I think the rest are self explanatory.  If anyone has any questions please ask.  And again, Thank you all!!!

And finally:

I hope this gives inspiration as you've given to me.
