1  Re: Summer is for... \../ METAL \../ - A Gallery of Hardcore Craftiness in The Swap Gallery by bezoona on: July 10, 2009 10:23:56 AM
Get ready to rock...

Seriously, my partner, chimes is OUT OF THIS WORLD. I mean this is beyond what I expected, I am completely panicking about the stuff I made, which looks like total garbage next to this stuff. I may need an extra few days, NO JOKE.

Tons of pics, but trust me they're worth it...I'm a HUGE maiden fan, LOVE them with all my heart. I'm also a total girlie girl and look to cook and frilly stuff. So check out the awesomeness that will be in my kitchen.

Yeah, I actually can't figure out these potholders, the fabric looks like its printed, my pictures stink but you can see Eddie on one side, with my favorite lyrics from Aces High and then the Maiden logo on the other, this is amazing.

And an awesome Maiden bag, I LOVE this, I honestly don't even know where Chimes found this tshirt, its awesome. I may add a zipper to it just to make it safer to carry. LOVE THIS!!!!

This is my favorite I think, because its going to hang in a very obvious place in my kitchen replacing the REALLY ugly plastic bag holder I have up right now. Again, not sure how she just had this awesome T laying around?!?!

And this is the SWEETEST, "Breakfast with Lemmy" oh gosh I love this so much, its just too cute, I think I'm going to use it as a spoon rest so its always on my stove. Its so cool, Ace of Spades and then the lyrics...all on the side. Beautiful. Amazing.

I feel bad that I'm the one who received first, I think my stuff will kick everything out of the water. Including my own. I really feel totally overwhelmed and totally misunderstood the 4 points thing...holy crap this stuff is amazing!!!

Thank you Chimes, you have been the most amazing partner, I'll own this stuff for EVER and I know that for a fact!

Up the Irons!!!

2  Re: Tea Towel for your Favorite Holiday :: Sendout by 11/22 in The Swap Gallery by bezoona on: November 25, 2008 12:52:46 PM
Holy Moly ladies, are you ready to see this??? I literally am still at a loss for words and the perfection of these towels I just received from my partner La la lauren...I will warn you that you will have to endure me reposting more photos of the overly perfect stitches with a better camera on Friday. These are too fantastic to not look at in detail...
First my beautifully wrapped package:

And...my first towel, for Eid (muslim holiday) it says "kul am wa intum bikhair" which means, eid greetings basically. I absolutely love it, its really perfect, not stitch out of place...

My second towel is for summer holidays - and yes, those are the worlds most perfect french knots. I will never ever EVER attempt anything with a french knot, since I know it will never measure up to the ones on this towel, WWWWWWWWOW!!!!!!

And then, my request for a non-holiday towel was met with this stunning beauty, (also since I'm obsessed with these little birds right now) how can this be any more adorable?

And all my extras!!!

I told la la lauren there is nothing I can say to adequately describe how I feel about this package! Its literally unbelievable, I absolutely LOVE it, the colors, the perfect stitching, and the unbelievable presentation and all the extras! I don't think there is a better swap partner out there!

Thank you so much for making this an awesome awesome swap for me!

Woooweee, I received, I'm going through all my stuff and will post pics asap Cheesy

Sad Sad I've been looking for my camera for 3 hours, my DH finally admitted he thinks it was stolen during our move but didn't want to tell me because he thought I'd find it while unpacking. How crappy is that. I'll hook up my web cam to take pics of all this amazing stuff. She said she sent a "few" extras...a FEW!!! Goodness! I have to take a pic quickly so I can eat some of the edibles yum yum yum.

Edit again...
Ok y'all are going to HAVE to excuse my web cam piccies. BUT...be ready to be jealous Cheesy

(all my goodies together)

My little grocery bag to add to my handmade non-plastic ones Smiley  It says AlHubb which means "Love" or "to love" - I love it!

Some of my extras, 2 different types of hummus (one's gonna be eaten tonight Cheesy ), a peace sign patch, a pretty green candle, some lovely Stash tea, and my favorite little note holder - so cute! I am TOTALLY stealing this idea for any holiday presents!

A lovely journal with the word "Sister" written in hebrew on it, I also loved this, so cute. Some lovely jars for keeping spices OR sewing supplies (which is what I'm going to do with them), and a hebrew phrase book.

A super cute ring made of felt and a israeli coin, I love it...

and the scarf and bag together

and my FAVORITE....a gorgeous scarf made in the style of a prayer scarf, made from beautiful fabric from Israel. I adore this, and I can't wait to wear it!

I totally feel like a meanie because I didn't send ANY extras  Sad I was in such a rush to get the package out at the last minute that I totally neglected including any extras, how lame am I. I hope israeli_chic still enjoys the items I made for her and that she forgives my non-extras oversight. I will TOTALLY remember that for my next swap  Shocked

And sorry ladies for the ultra long post and overload of pics Smiley

Hi all, I'm sharing a random collection of recipes:

This may SOUND weird, but try it, you will LOVE it...its a bit wintery, but mmmmm....tastes great with toasted bread or crackers

Hot Shrimp "Dip"

    * 1 pound peeled shrimp
    * 1/2 cup chopped onion
    * 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
    * 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    * 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (I personally never add this)
    * 1 teaspoon vegetable oil (or this Cheesy )
    * 1 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

Dice up everything, including the shrimp, place into a baking dish, add the cheese and mix. Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes. Serve with toasted baguette or crackers.

Since I don't think anyone put a sangria recipe:

White Peach Sangria

    *  1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry white wine
    * 3/4 cup peach flavored vodka
    * 6 tablespoons frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
    * 1/4 cup white sugar
    * 1 pound white peaches, pitted and sliced
    * 3/4 cup seedless red grapes, halved
    * 3/4 cup seedless green grapes, halved

In a large pitcher or bowl, combine white wine, peach vodka, lemonade concentrate and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add sliced peaches, red and green grapes.
Refrigerate sangria until well chilled, at least 2 hours, but preferably overnight to get the BEST flavor.Serve and watch out, its potent!

Muttabal - Eggplant dip (similar to baba ganough)

1 large eggplant
2 garlic cloves
2 tablespoons of "Tehina" (Sesame seed paste, you can find it at most grocery stores in the international aisle)
4 tablespoons of lemon juice
salt and olive oil to taste

Place the eggplants under the grill for 30 minutes, until the skin is almost burnt. In the meantime, mix the two tablespoons of Tehina (sesame seed paste) with the lemon juice until it becomes a smooth light beige uniform paste. Remove the eggplants, and place them on a plate. Remove the inside of the eggplants and place them in a dish. The insides of the eggplant will be slightly watery, so mix it with a fork which would at the same time cut it into smaller pieces, almost a paste though not uniform in any way. Add the Tehina paste and mix well with the fork. Crush the garlic cloves with the chili pepper and add to the mixture. Mix well. Add salt and olive oil to taste.
You can also use a food processor if you prefer it to be a bit creamier.

I really wanted to post more middle eastern recipes but I have no idea about measurements or anything, just eyeballing everything, how terrible!

I just received a beautifully made potholder/trivet from my awesome partner myklia. I apologize in advance for the horrible webcam photos because my camera is already packed as I'm leaving in a few minutes...the colors do not show up as true, they are gorgeous colors of pale blue, green, apple green, and white. Its just precious and I love it!
