1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Newly arranged crafting space and music studio set up. on: August 31, 2009 10:30:53 AM
So me and my other half moved into our flat 6 months ago, and since then have both been sharing the back wall of the living room for our creative hoo-haa.
He makes music and I obviously do alot of crafting, so its been a mish mash of thread, yarn, wiring and stepping on each other toes.

This is his space finished. My machine used to be on the desk but its now his. We attached the speakers to the perfectly positioned CD racks by just putting in a couple of nails into the back on them and they hook on.
All the other furniture there was found on the street or collected from freecycle users. That chair is soooo comfortable.

After alot of thinking I finally managed to get together a space that works well and looks nice.
I had some tall wooden shelves, y'know - the cheap wobbly kind by our bed, and a wardrobe the other side of the bedroom.
So I chopped the shelves in half and swapped places with the wardrobe.
The little pocket pouch belongs to the wardrobe but its new position meant it lay flat up against the wall - useless, so it now holds scissors. bobbins and such like.
The chair was found on the street - I just re-upholstered it.

And I didn't spend a penny Cheesy

Yours looks way better than Pizza Hut's.
This was a limited time thing in the US, the 'bites' crust at least, they still always have the regular stuffed crust pizza, it's my favorite and have been trying to figure out how to recreate it (since we don't like to order from pizza hut because they can't seem to ever be able to find our house and it takes like 2+ hours to get our order).  Thanks for the tips, I will have to give this a try... I just hope mine looks ad good as yours!

Thanks very much Cheesy
I do like pizza hut stuffed crust too. But my only issue is that the cheese is a bit plasticy..if you can understand that! Thats just reminded me that me and my little sister used to call hamburger cheese slices plastic cheese when we were little hehe.
I used extra strong mature cheddar for bites, and a mild cheddar for the topping. No chemicly processed rubbish in this house!

I might try one with mozzarella inside. That would be yummy!

Anyway, this was a little tester one to see if it would work - and I've just knocked up a large one for the family to have for dinner tonight, to be enjoyed in t-minus 20 minutes!
I can feel my arteries wincing already  Shocked

Will upload a picture when its done!


Here we go. The bites merged together a bit more then the last one so it doesn't look as pretty, but it was even more yummy as I left the tomato mix to rest over the afternoon and the herbs from the pesto had infused into it all.

I feel bloated!

I'm not sure if Pizza Hut do this anywhere else, but here in the UK they do a fantastic pizza with little 'bites' instead of a crust that are stuffed with cheese.

They're mighty expensive though, so I had a go at making one myself!

I used a plain white loaf recipe, and beat it/rolled it into a circle. I then snipped into the edges about 1 1/2" all the way around with a pair of scissors.

I grated some cheese into a bowl and sprinkled in some mixed herbs.
I then took a little bit of the mixture and squished it into a ball, before placing it in the middle of one of the flaps, folding it over and sealing with a little egg.

I did this all the way around before brushing the crust with egg and putting a little dried garlic powder on them.

I used one tin of chopped tomatos and 2 tablespoons of red pesto for the base, and a handful of cheese.

So easy and so yummy!

Me and my sisters boyfriend just ate it all in one go!

I'm always answering the door to the postman in various states on undress!

When the doorbell goes you have to make quick decision judging the importance of the parcel, times with the level of embarrassment to be had!

Make a 'Saving the postman's blushes' dressing gown or kimono to keep by the front door!

We call it eggy bread here in the UK  Grin
Traditionally we will just eat it with a sprinkling of sugar over the top.

But this looks delicious!
