11  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Minions Strike again!!! Minion EGGS!!!!! on: April 03, 2014 11:56:15 AM
This project was pinterest inspired and modified to fit the supplies I had.

What do you need!!!
Yellow and Blue plastic eggs
hot glue gun
black electrical tape
Googley eyes
Black Sharpie

I had to cut apart my eggs and then just mixed up my yellow and blue eggs. Add a strip of electrical tape for the goggle strap and then hot glue on an eye or two. Easy peasy! Use your sharpie to add a crooked little smile and some hair

Just added....PURPLE MINIONS!!!!

12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Kissing Ball on: March 10, 2014 12:06:01 PM

https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=429234.120#axzz2vaSkLL6D It was in with a variety of other bits and baubles. I used old sheet music and scrap scrap book paper to make this. I also got to play with a cricut. Lots of Fun!  Grin

13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / You're one in a "MINION!" on: February 14, 2014 07:12:25 AM
Pinterest inspired, but modified to fit my supplies  Wink
Here's the finished bookmark/Valentine

Here are the bits and pieces that I cut out to put it together. Very simple, very easy. It helps I had a punch for the yellow base of my minion.

I love minions!!!

15  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Christmas card ornament on: December 29, 2013 07:05:12 PM
I found the pattern for these ornaments online.  I would love to give credit to the website I got it off of,  but I can't find the address anymore.   Tongue

I traced twelve of these little flower shapes on old Christmas cards.

Then you just have to fit them together.  They get a little fiddley at the end when you get to the last couple of pieces

 I use a needle and thread and run it through a point to add a hanger. Then you are all done  Grin
16  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Pumpkin Scraping 101 on: October 30, 2013 01:24:22 PM
Pumpkin scraping is a lot like pumpkin carving, but much easier. You don't have to worry about your things falling apart when you cut them out. I like using a linoleum cutter or an Xacto gouge. In the past before we had those tools we used bottle openers, lemon zesters, xacto knives, wood carving tools, sculpting tools, anything that would scrape off the outer layer of the pumpkin.
1. Draw on your design
2. scrape your design - the hardest part is deciding what to scrape and what to outline
3. Light your pumpkin! If your design doesn't show up. Don't worry, just scrape the inside of the pumpkin with a plastic lid or spoon to thin the pumpkin walls without messing up your design.
4. Light your pumpkin again!!!

** We always cut out the bottom of our pumpkins so that the lid doesn't fall in. Also we use Christmas lights to light them up. Much easier than candles and you can have a whole string of them for ALL your pumpkins. I use a sharpie or an ink pen to draw on my pumpkin. To clean that up use a little hand sanitizer on a rag or paper towel. The alcohol in it takes off the ink. Spit works in a pinch  Wink

So far this year I have carved 51 pumpkins and I'm not done yet!!!

17  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / It's a Boy! Needle felted Gender reveal pumpkin on: October 02, 2013 07:20:37 AM
A friend of mine saw on Pinterest a fun way to reveal the gender of her new baby. She used a real pumpkin, drew on a face, attached a pacifier and then after the ultrasound told her it was a boy, she added a blue bowtie. She displayed her little pumpkin so everyone could see that it was a boy! I wanted to make her a felted pumpkin with the blue bowtie so that it would last forever.  Grin
sorry my pic is a little fuzzy

I started with a foam core. I haven't done this before, but I was pressed for time and I wanted my pumpkin to be a decent size.

I added on some plain wool I have lots of before adding on the orange, which I don't have lots of. I felted the stem separately and and added it after the orange.

I added the face with yellow wool, but it needed something more. I added the black for the eyes. It made him look much cuter. The bow tie I made separately and added on. I think he turned out rather cute.  I left him fluffier than I normally do, but I like the effect.

18  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Old Fashioned Dry Sugar Pickles on: September 17, 2013 12:49:25 PM

I got this recipe from a dear friend who had it in her family for years and years. This is not a hard recipe it just takes patience.
In the beginning you do something different to the cucumbers each day. Because they are so boyant, I used a glass pie plate to hold them down in the liquid.
Make sure you have a lid for your bucket. I bought a nice 5 gallon bucket with a lid from Walmart and it worked great.

I don't know why some of my pics are upside down, I tried to fix them  Undecided

Some of the seedier cucumbers kind of hollowed out during the pickling process, but it did not hurt the crispness or the taste.

I used closer to 10 lbs of sugar when layering the pickles and the sugar. Even though I drained all the liquid off the cucumbers before slicing they still had lots of juice inside and it makes a nice sugary syrup when they sit for a while.

You do not have to freeze of refridgerate these pickles, they sit on the shelf for about 2 years and are still good. I refridgerate before serving just because I like them cold. You can also grind them up into relish and they make a great addition to things like ham salad.
19  COOKING / Dessert / camo cake on: August 27, 2013 06:08:11 AM

My son requested a vanilla cake colored bright orange with camo icing on the outside. I think it turned out pretty good. I used different sized star tips for the camo, a writing tip to outline the camo areas, and a larger round tip to make the black dot border. Inside the cake was as orange as me and Wilton could make it.  Grin

20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Minion Door Decor on: August 22, 2013 12:53:41 PM
I don't know what catagory to put this under, so I went with Miscellaneous.
This is the door to one of my classrooms. My kids and I are major minion fans so my little McDonald's toys modeled for me and I created this minion. The arms and hair are attached outside the door and the main body of my minion is just attached to the door. I had fun making him so I thought I would share!
