11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / 3 Tries at Scrabble Tile Pendants on: July 22, 2008 07:00:31 PM
So I've been itching to try and make some of those super-cool pendants made out of Scrabble tiles. Here are my first three attempts: flower design, peace sign, and an old coke advertisement.
[I will try and gather some better pictures soon]

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrink Plastic Design. on: July 22, 2008 05:21:20 PM

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Newspaper Bead Question on: July 16, 2008 08:50:39 PM
I'd really like to try and make some newspaper beads, like in this topic: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244442.0

But I was wondering if there was a way to get the paper to dry faster; she explains that it could a whole day and night. Is there another way to make these beads in a much shorter time span?

14  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Lots of Old Records- Ideas? on: July 01, 2008 02:34:16 PM
I was just snooping in some of our junk and we have TONS and TONS of little old vinyl records. I know I have seen the whole, "bowl made from a record" project, but I was wondering if anyone had come up with anymore ideas/projects.
Let me know please!


Edit: sorry, I just realized this should probably be in another section of the forum.  Undecided
15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / A Birthday Gift [Earrings, 8 pairs] on: June 30, 2008 09:52:33 PM
These are some earrings that I only just finished, and I'm giving them to my friend tomorrow for her birthday.
I may add some more later on tonight- but I still have yet to make cupcakes!  Shocked

I apologize for the darkness and relative crapiness of my picture, the lighting is terrible in my living room at night/early morning.
Feedback is welcome!

16  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Shrink Plastic Question on: June 27, 2008 02:32:59 PM
I wasn't sure where to put this, but...
I just got Graffix Shrink Film [like an off brand of those Shrinky Dink things], and I love it, yet there is a problem.
I bake my design, and it curls up. Should I leave it in the oven longer? Or place something on top of it as it bakes?

Any tips?
17  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Fortune Cookie Trouble on: June 26, 2008 10:24:01 PM
I am trying to make some custom fortune cookies for my friends birthday..but..I'm having some trouble getting my fortune cookie recipe to work correctly. Everything tastes fine, but when I do the whole "folding" part, the cookie sort of cracks and doesn't look all that pretty. I'm wondering if maybe I'm just folding it too hard and such.
Here is my current recipe:
1 egg white
1/8 vanilla extract  [times two, I did it twice]
1 pinch of salt
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 sugar
2 Tbsp sugar

1. Preheat oven 400 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet.

2. Mix egg white and vanilla until foamy, not stiff. Sift flour, salt, and sugar. Blend into egg white mix.

3. Place teaspoonfuls of batter at least 4 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Tilt sheet to move batter into a more round shape and about 3 inches in diameter. Make about 1 or 2 per sheet to begin with.

3. Bake for about 4-5 minutes until cookie is golden color around edges. Center remains pale.

5. Quickly remove from oven and remove cookie with spatula and place upside down on a wooden board. Quickly put fortune in middle of the cookie, fold the cookie in half. Place folded cookie around the rim of a cup. This is to hold the shape until cool and firm.

I am thinking that maybe I'm not spreading it out enough, like the middle of the cookie is too thick; hence how it cracks when I fold it. But, I may just be folding too hard of a line. Let me know of any tips you have!
[the taste is A-ok! though]

Let me know what you think!
-I made more, but resisted taking a picture, I figured one large group shot would be best.

20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Heart Painting - Mixed Media on: June 23, 2008 05:43:18 PM
Note: This will also be available, at some point, for viewing on my deviant art account.

Basically just a random painting that was going to be part of a series, but I never really got around to it. Acrylic paint and some tempra, and misc. buttons. Fairly large, but I'm unsure of the actual size of the canvas.

First thing of mine on Craftster, hope you guys enjoy it!
