31  COOKING / Dessert / Chocolate-Rum Balls on: June 15, 2009 01:12:59 PM
In Russian, these are called "kartoshka", or "potatoes". My boyfriend's brother thinks they look odd, which they probably do, unintentionally, but they are one of the most delicious things ever. They're made out of cocoa, sugar, graham cracker crumbs, milk, and butter (and rum, or rum flavouring).

32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tiny dress form on: June 01, 2009 12:20:14 PM
Out of air dry clay and wire:

For vague comparison of size:

I may paint it and someday put it on my sewing desk (that is, if I can get one, which I doubt), but then again it would probably get squished or eaten by my cat while sitting out to dry.
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tiny clay skulls on: May 19, 2009 07:24:41 PM
I suppose these should be classified as trinkets. I made these out of red beads and clay, so their eyes would glow red.

(sorry for the blurriness)
34  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Honeysuckle cough syrup on: May 19, 2009 07:18:14 PM
So I read a lot about how honeysuckle flowers work great against coughs and sore throats, and since I have practically clouds of them in my backyard, I made this. Cheesy

35  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Dandelion Flower and Lavender Salve on: May 15, 2009 10:36:46 PM
I had made some dandelion flower infused oil a month or so ago and finally decided to use it in a salve. It smells absolutely wonderful.

As soon as the plantains in my backyard grow I'm planning to make a salve out of them as well. Cheesy
36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Flowery orange skirt on: May 12, 2009 02:33:42 PM
Since the time I got my sewing machine, I have only used it for taking in shirts and the such. I don't know why, because the whole reason I got it was so I'd actually finish something rather than spending the whole night handsewing it. But anyway, I put down my foot with my hand and using some instructions from Burdastyle, made this:

Please excuse the mess... I have been sickly.

I'm quite proud of it. The button at the top of the zipper is a tiny gold-coloured sun, but I couldn't get a good picture of it.
37  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Moomintrolls on: May 08, 2009 12:52:51 AM
I did this on a whim -- I don't usually do embroidery unless forced to (and then it's cross stitching) so I don't know much about it, but I didn't feel like doing anything else craft-wise, and I have been re-reading a lot of Moomintroll books... and so, voila!

I first drew in the pictures with a pencil, traced them with a pen, and then stitched them in. It's Moomintroll, the Snork Maiden, and Little My. I'm quite proud of it.
Though I'm not sure whether to make a patch out of it, or hang it in a picture frame or something -- any suggestions?
38  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My duct tape wallet on: April 24, 2009 10:25:34 PM
This is a duct tape wallet I made a year or two ago and still use. These pictures are from when I first made it, since then it has gotten a bit more worn, but it's still holding up very well. I used stamps, stickers, a Russian candy wrapper, and a piece of a picture off a tiny phone book that got torn up.

I hope you like it. Smiley
39  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Tea box and keyboard parts on: April 19, 2009 02:59:38 PM
What do I do with these?

Cardboard tea box (sorry for the blurriness):

Keyboard buttons (sort of rubbery and fun to press):

And a keyboard, erm... vaguely rainbowy sort of thing:

40  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Little Nemo on: March 27, 2009 12:56:45 AM
This is a picture I made for my boyfriend for his last birthday -- first I drew it out on paper, then scanned it and coloured it on Gimp. Hope you like it. Smiley
