That is wonderful then. I hope you get into swapping soon. Hint Hint. LOL I love you used a goodwill shirt and made this $2 T look like something that would sell in the shops. Think about etsy. You have talent.

Thanks! I'd love to get into swapping, but maybe once I graduate because, sadly, my thesis is not on my amazing crafting lifestyle.

THANKS! I did it all free-hand using the maps from the beginning of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy for guidance. They are slightly modified to fit onto a t-shirt.

I needed a costume for various Hobbit related event and decided to go as a map(s). The front is Thror's Map, back is Middle-Earth. I bought the t-shirt for $2 at Goodwill and used Sharpie for the maps. All map credit goes to Tolkien and his illustrators.

I thought it was a cheap and doable costume for the up-coming premiere and easily usable for future Hobbity goodness. If you make one please share! (It's so easy, I did the front on my Metro ride)
4  COOKING / Dessert / Irish Drink Cupcakes on: March 17, 2011 10:00:14 PM

Since this is the only week off I have until commencement (yay!) I saw the need to make some yummy treats for myself.

These, my friends, are Irish Drink cupcakes. Guinness cake batter, Baileys buttercream and spiked chocolate ganache filling.

See this link for the recipe:Cupcake recipe

I have to say, these put me into the most wonderful food coma ever.

I had the mental image of a sweet old woman working tirelessly to create this while her dear grandson/stormtrooper fights away....

So that means it's awesome.

I applaud you! It looks great. And to be honest, I have the same fabric, bought it around the same time, and I've only made 2 things with it, so I'm extra proud of you.

Thanks Remusbox! I didn't really understand the directions by reading them (like about the folding) so I looked on Youtube for a visual picture.  I'm a bit nervous but excited to try my first croissants!! The book recommended the weekend.  Is there time during the week if I work or is it too time consumming? I want to try it out first BEFORE I try over the weekend (hopefully my batch I give away to my coworkers)!

I think weekends are a good time because of time constraints and everything. You could manage it during the week I suppose. It really depends on how much time you have over a three day period of time.

Adorable! I love that they're sleeping. I think I might have to try this with my felt scraps...

I have this book! Just looked up the croissant recipe because your pics look divine.  What kind of chocolate did you use? How did they taste? Any tips?

I used some Godiva chocolate from a standard Godiva chocolate bar. It honestly tasted just like the chocolate used in chocolate croissants I've had at cafes. I think they tasted amazing for being made at home by an amateur.

As far as tips go, I'd say be patient and read carefully. Double check measurements before adding anything to the batter, you don't want to mess up days of work. Also, try not to get frustrated. First time I made croissants it felt so overwhelming, and I felt like I was messing up everything, but the end result was fine. Just have fun with it!
