1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: My first gallery exhibit!! (incredible amount of pictures) on: November 14, 2011 07:46:54 AM
Your work is so beautiful! And thank you so much for sharing your technique, too!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pearl and chain bracelets on: August 17, 2011 01:29:54 AM
So I'm going to college in a couple days (yay!) and I thought I'd give my roommates-to-be something pretty upon meeting them.  Nothing suitable presented itself for purchase, so I took it as my bounden duty to make something-- not as if I needed a lot of convincing to take that option  Grin 

Here's what I came up with!

I bought the chain and findings, but the pearls are from an old necklace and the beads are left over from making dance hairpieces. 
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: A Very Potter Musical/Sequel Swap on: December 05, 2010 10:17:53 AM
An AVPM/AVPS swap would be totally awesome! I guess that means I have to get off my butt and post something so I meet the minimum swap requirements, I've just been lurking...
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Using a Commercial Sewing Pattern on: August 17, 2010 09:28:15 PM
Wow!! This tute is definitely going in my bookmarks folder. Thank you so much for taking the time to make it for people like me who are totally confused by commercial patterns.
5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: corset boots on: July 16, 2010 07:46:23 PM
They look amazing! Fantastic idea.

I tend to have the opposite problem, actually- my calves are too skinny for most boots, and I end up with a ton of empty space around my legs.  Undecided I wonder if I could cut a sort of dart in the back of a pair to make them fit better?
6  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Worlds Most Dangerous Chocolate Cake on: June 05, 2009 04:54:39 PM
What a great recipe! Grin I've made the cake many times now after finding this topic and I thought I might share my tweaks with y'all. There's one extra step and a few more ingredients and it's basically put together in reverse order, but it really pays off.

The texture is nicer if it's cooked in a bowl but the mug is so cute.

Melt 3 T butter, add 3 T milk, a tiny bit of vanilla, and an egg. Beat it all up. Add 4 T flour, 5 1/2 T sugar (just eye it Wink ), 2 scant T cocoa powder, a small pinch of baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Microwave for 3 minutes.

Notes on my changes: Butter is generally more flavorful than oil, so that had to be in. Vanilla helps flavoring a lot too. The first time I made the cake it was pretty bitter, so I increased the sugar by a tablespoon. It was still too bitter, so I tried 6 tablespoons, which was too sweet, so the happy medium was 5 1/2. Some people on this thread suggested the baking powder, which definitely made it better. Then I gave the recipe to a friend, and the credit for the salt goes to her- it does help.

The bottom sometimes gets kind of soggy and weird, but if you turn it out right away and sprinkle lots of powdered sugar on it you'd never know.
7  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: ~*~*Reviews of Prepackaged Vegetarian and Vegan Foods*~*~ on: August 13, 2008 06:23:54 PM
I love the Nate's Beef-Flavor Taquitos. I can't remember if they are vegetarian or vegan, I'm thinking vegan though; they're frozen and pretty cheap.  They don't taste like beef, but they do taste a bit smoky, a bit spicy, and altogether pretty good. Even my meat-eating friends steal them when I have them. They do get kind of soggy if you microwave them though, so the oven is much better.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Social Stigma of Public Display of Knit-fection on: August 08, 2008 09:08:29 PM
I get some funny looks when I'm knitting in public, since I'm a teenager and it's "dorky". I try to ignore them and comfort myself with the thought that I have sharp pointy sticks, but especially when they start asking questions with the tone that plainly says "Why on earth would somebody do this with their time?", I get irritated.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: New Bag...not sure what to think... on: August 08, 2008 09:03:17 PM
That's such a nice bag. I love how clean the lines are- you could wear it with anything.
Maybe white piping around the edge, or as was already suggested a flower embellishment would do the trick.
