561  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Glass Beads: Ring on: April 10, 2009 08:29:24 PM
This is a ring I made a while back. It is made of glass and seed beads. I weaved a clear fishing cord to connect the glass beads (on top) and clear elastic cords to tie up the seed beads that go around the finger. The elastic cord makes it easy to take on and off. I haven't made much jewelry (esp. beaded), but I'm very proud of this piece. Hope it inspires someone  Smiley

562  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bronze Family Heritage Medal Necklace on: April 10, 2009 08:15:41 PM
I recently found this medal in my stuff. It means a lot to me and I wasn't sure what to do with it since it is quite heavy, but it is actually very comfortable. This is what I came up with:

The necklace

The Clasp

On me

Matching earrings

Any comments or suggestions about what else I could do with the other, slightly smaller medal I have, are more than welcome...

Thanks Grin

Sorry about my lack of knowledge, but what are shrinky dinks? I've seen tons of gorgeous projects on Craftster but am not familiar with this material. I would like to use it, so I'd appreciate a little info...

Thanks! Huh
564  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: frozen water bottle holder on: September 17, 2008 03:54:48 AM
Hi, I know it's been months since you posted your question, but, in case you're still looking for ideas... here's what I do (I also carry a half-frozen water bottle around): At the dollar store, I found a bath mitt (no thumb), which is basically one usually used for babies.  Fits right around my widest
water bottles, doesn't slip off, and absorbs all the "sweat".

It would be really simple to add a handle, just sew a ribbon, strap, string, or shoelace and voil!.

You could easily just use a regular face cloth and make your own, here's a tutorial: www.ehow.com/how_2072117_bath-mitt.html

I recommend using a nice thick cloth, not a really thin one because it will get soaked too fast. It's great because you can just toss it in the wash.

Good luck!
565  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Why are you Vegetarian/Vegan? on: September 14, 2008 10:33:52 PM
I've been vegetarian since I was 13. I could say that it's all about animal rights, and I guess it sort of was at first, but truthfully, I really became a vegetarian to get some extra attention from my mother. Becoming vegetarian was my whole "teenage rebellion" phase (yeah, I was a bad girl back then Wink). I was studying debates in English class and I got the subject of being for animal rights. So learning about slaughter houses and seeing pictures of what the effects of cosmetic testing would be if it were done on humans, etc. etc. and I was disgusted by it.

When I first announced my decision, I was told that it was okay, as long as still ate fish, which was fine with me. So here I am, twelve years older and still vegetarian... I did have a short period where I began eating chicken and turkey again because I was hospitalized for several months in a small hospital and I didn't really want to eat canned salmon and canned chickpeas on green salad a couple of times a day. When I first went back to it, it lifted my stomach and I never got to the point of liking it.

All in all, being vegetarian has just become a lifestyle for me and I don't think I'll ever be able to give that up, which is fine with me - I actually know more meat-eaters who have had problems with anemia than vegetarians.
566  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Chai tea turned cheesy?! on: September 14, 2008 09:59:16 PM
Hmm... good question  Undecided I'll try that in the morning (I doubt my roomate would appreciate my microwaving odd foods in the middle of the night)!
567  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Chai tea turned cheesy?! on: September 12, 2008 01:58:43 PM
Well actually, after draining the water from it, it's not like paneer at all, it's all crumbled up and quite dry, sort of like extra-firm tofu that was frozen and then crumbled... I don't know if you understand quite what I mean? I should try taking a picture maybe?

Anyhow, thanks for taking time to give a suggestion!
568  COOKING / Dessert / Chai tea turned cheesy?! on: September 12, 2008 12:54:51 PM
Hi all,

This is my first post and I kind of have a weird question... I tried making chai tea the other day and decided to add vanilla protein powder. When I did that however, the mix started to curdle. Undecided So now, I'm squeezing out the water and pressing it. I suppose it will be similar to paneer (I've never had paneer).

So, my question would be, what do you do with chai flavoured cheese? I would like to prepare it in some way just because it's weird eating it just like that... and there aren't many recipes out there using this rather, umm, unexpected ingredient.

Thanks for any suggestions!
